    Well
    i decided i want a good drumming game for the DS so i want to make one ( i know i sound nobbie)

    the only thing i know how to do is design so i could design the game and im looking for coders ideas and notes makers

    ok do you want a drum machine or a game like rock band where you have to hit notes at a certain point?

    Hold up. [Most] drums are played with two sticks. reason? because thats just the way it is. the DS can recognize one point on the touch screen. so that makes it hard to make a "good" drum game on the DS.

    1st i want it somewhere near rockband and im not sure that the ds can only recognize 1 hit because
    i got a game which you use to sticks and sometime you need to use them both together

    ... it's not that we don't think it can't press multiple points at the same time,
    we KNOW it isn't multitouch, so yeah, a drum game would be awkward..

    Sigh, no one knows how to make a drum machine.
    Find out what point the ds thinks you touch when you touch two spots, then use that for things like cymbals and bass pedal or something.

    Balrogs.pain.. But then wouldnt you have to touch both spots at EXACTLY the same time, or within the amount of time that it takes for the DS to recognize a touch? Otherwise it would just recognize the first touch, right?

    umm... buttons? They'd be more accurate anyway.

    Has anyone played the drumming homebrew on GP32? I think it's called something simple like DrumMan, but it's really awesome.

    Try Taiko no Tatsujin style. Why? Because it is a drum game, everything fits perfectly there, try that style first, another pdate for another style will be good, but the first edition should be Taiko style, I think
