Make sure your touchscreen settings are set to normal and not 16x16, i almost though my touchscreen didnt work until i changed that

You either click on the Properties button in the main window or open File, Properties and open the appropriate tab bar to view a set of options with can be changed (ie like touchscreen input).

There are 3 different options,

1. Far Corners
2. Normal
3. Around 16x16

By default it is set to Normal.

Perhaps there should be a sticky made for iDeaS User Interface & Controls??

I think there would be great if a whole FAQ about DS emulation would be written and made sticky, to keep the silly question count to the minimum ;)

But really come on, who doesn't know that the bottom screen of a NDS is the touchscreen??
I mean I've never even held one before yet I know exactly how the bloody thing works and it only takes a little common sense to work out that an emulator MIGHT just be trying to work like a real NDS. But also it would be helpful for things like controls/keys and even how to use certain features that emulators have or will have in the near future.
Actually I might start on one right now...

Maybe you can try this joy2key ? Until they add controls to it in the future. :)

What games are you trying to use the touchscreen with? Cos Evrain said that not all the different methods as using the touchscreen were emulated yet.

I have tried the menu of Viewtiful Joe: Double Trouble, madagascar and other games.

please be aware that this emu is not perfectly yet so please do not complain about it. You need to be patient and if you want to play those games. Buy your own NDS, thats simple. :)

February 27th, 2006, 17:29
Heh, I have a DS, and I have the games I mentioned. The only thing I want with the emu is TEST it.

February 27th, 2006, 21:10
Okay. Test it is fine but to complain about it is otherwise and is not cool! ;) :P

Just tell me some working touch screen games.

February 28th, 2006, 13:02

February 28th, 2006, 13:36
Ok, I have that game in both rom and cartidge version, so I'll try it...
