    Hello guys

    So is there any patch or hack or maybe an Action Replay code I can use to switch the screens?
    Top screen to Touch screen, Touch screen to the Top

    Because MegaMan Star Force 2 looks a lot better on the top (nasty Touch screen).

    The game don't really use it as Touch Screen, but it would be better that if I press a button it change back and forth.

    Is there a way to do this?

    I think not, the feature was built-in to a game, a simple code won't be able to execute such powerful action.

    I bet it could be done in hardware if it was that important to you.

    Not just for one game, this could be cool for some other games too.

    Anyways, in Dungeon Explorer, in the Options, there are an option to switch the 2 screens.

    So I think it's not that hard to do?

    Seen as it is a problem for some of the GBA slot carts (the second Advance Wars springs to mind) I reckon something could happen. Whether it would be AR code simple or not is a different matter.

    It has happened to a couple of games over the course of things (although their names escape me right now) but most recently (for me anyway) was the second advance wars for the DS. The screens would be swapped until the first battle animation (and it would return if you saved and power cycled), it was however fixed in a later patch.

    Thinking about it nothing major should have changed for a simple animation so it may actually be AR code simple.
