Public Service Announcement - Game Division

Now that the China factory takes Sundays off, I'm glad to have the Nintendo DS (old-school version, but a Japanese Graphite unit for cool value). Finally managed to beat Castlevania DS and now I'm going back to work on the GBA DoublePack version (Harmony Of Dissonance and Aria of Sorrow). I was going okay on HoD until I got the Griffin Wing relic which is suppose to allow you to Super Jump with a Down-Up-Jump button combo but I simply couldn't make it happen no matter how I timed it.

I thought it was just my poor button-mashing reflexes, but thankfully I finally found the answer on a GameFAQ message board discussion.

Not sure why this is happening, but the Griffin Wing never works for me if I remap the Jump button under Key Config (if I use B instead of A). Has anyone else who's playing HoD experienced this? Some more info - I have the newer Double Pack version and I'm using a DS, not a GBA.

Hey, that's me. I'd customized the button assignments to more resemble the Castlevania DS layout. So I reset the button configuration and now I'm on my way.
