    Me too. Right now there's no button that is designed to pause a game, so some people use X, Y, the touch screen, etc., instead of everyone using the same button.

    I agree. I know that each button does a different thing in direct mode, but I only find myself using select to terminate programs., so having the start button back is what I would have preferred.

    Yo same! I guess having to press select a ton on petit computer just got me to do the same thing in SmileBASIC

Express Yourself I heard that nintendo doesn't allow games to use select and start for different things. Think about it, what 3DS games use the START and SELECT buttons differently? none... (except virtual console) Posted

    I doubt they would listen, but it's worth a shot.

  • #9 ✎ 930 Y_ack They probably can't tell at a software level and therefore can't actually give us that value. It isn't a choice (except, possibly, for the use of select as program-ending, which doesn't seem like that bad a thing if we wouldn't have been able to use both anyway), as has been discussed many times before.

Express Yourself Smileboom made the best choice. The lack of a standard pause button is slightly annoying, but you can always just close your 3DS if you need to. At least they didn't pick a button you would hit by mistake... like... any of them. Posted Edited by 12Me21

Programming Strength you could use the dpad for a pause scren that shows things like you'r gear or a mini map etc and use the circle pad for movement that could fix the problem. Posted

    Even though the D-Pad might work as a pause button in some types of game, the main problem is that people won't expect it.

    good piont but if you tell people when you post the key it well work perfectly and it could even be better than the traditional start button. the only problem I have with the start button terminating the program is my finger automatically goes for the start button which can be very frustrating.

Programming Strength Avatar Taboo I didn't change my avatar for 180 days Website Forum Contributor Hidden Achievements Update 3.6.0 made it so that SmileBASIC detects SELECT as BUTTON() output 1024. This could be used for detecting whether someone takes a screenshot. Posted
  • #20 ✎ 132 DFrost Expert Programmer Programming no longer gives me any trouble. Come to me for help, if you like! Programming Strength well holding START stops a program and SELECT takes a screenshot so either tapping START or using SELECT would work. Posted
