    Just wondering will it ever be possible? Not that I care since I sold my ds! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Probably possible, but I can't see it happening.

    How would you expect to control the touch screen AND the buttons?

    Possible? Yes, will it happen anytime soon? No. Theres hardly a decent, working DS emulator for the PC and the best one thus far on the market is closed source called No$GBA and that can play some DS games decently.

    Also what about touch screen support? I can't see it being easy to use both the buttons on a wii mote and the motion sensor for the touch screen. Also it would be a bit overkill since the DS screen size is a bit small and resizing it to fit on an average TV would make the game look horrendous.

    I agree. Since you couldn't make the graphics work due to differing screen size, it probably won't happen.

    I imagine the whole touchscreen thing is a hindrance...

    I don't see the problem with the touch screen and buttons issue.
    There aren't very many DS games that make you use the touch screen, buttons, and d-pad all at the same time.
    It's almost always the touch screen by it's self, the touch screen and buttons, or the d-pad and buttons with the occasional use of the touch screen.

    All you'd need is the classic controller and a Wiimote for pointing.

    Either way, I can't see a DS emulator on the Wii anytime soon, but it could be possible.

    Or like... point at screen and hold B to press down on the "toucH" screen
    and for normal play hold it sideways and use D-pad and 1 and 2 [​IMG]
    I hardly use all 4 DS buttons...
