    It was a little fiddly to setup but once I got it going it worked great. It seems a little unstable though, sometimes after exiting and restarting the PC side of it I have to delete and redo the entry in PPJoy. Great work though.

    works great!
    using my DS as a controller to play N64 games on my computer is crazy!!!
    hehehehe think of all the deceiving I can do on youtube with this. LOL [​IMG]

    I'm using XP SP3, two DSTTs, two DS phats, a linksys router, and project 64 emulator.

    All we really need for this app to be perfect (besides a bit of front-end tweaking) is the ability to use our rumble packs as well! [​IMG]

    People always seem to have trouble with PPJoy. I use DSPad and DS2Key Server and stick with the DS' buttons to correspond to keyboard key presses and not mess with PPJoy (though i have gotten it to work). It has worked great for me, even hooking up 2 DSs so my girlfriend and i can both play 2 players using emulators and PC games that accept keyboard controls.
