For the sake of people who prefer things the old-fashioned way, I think that Simon and Ryu should be able to use sub-weapons with Up + Attack, and Sophia with Down + Attack . . . IN ADDITION to the Special button. That is, you should be able to press either Special or Up + Attack to the same effect (unless you're crouching, in which case only Special will work, for obvious reasons). It shouldn't be a problem for two inputs to do the same thing, right? And since Up + Attack doesn't currently do anything as Simon or Ryu, adding this wouldn't conflict with the current control scheme. (I'm not as familiar with Blaster Master . . . how did sub-weapons work on walls in that game? Would that conflict with the current control scheme?) In another thread I suggested adding Cycle Buttons, and that doing so would free up Bass' Special button to be a Dash button (as it was in MM & B). If that happens, then Bass' Dash would be assigned to both Special and Down + Jump in a similar fashion to the sub-weapons above.
