I've only just got a hold of Mario64 for DS. I've noticed there is a few control options.
From what i remember playing the original on the 64 there are quite a few bits where precise controls ar required.

Whats the best control setup to play this game?

i've herad of using a small suction cap on the touch screen or a thumb stylus or something, are these ideas any good? - i can't see myself having the paitent to complete the game using the d-pad and just using the touch screen with my thumb is fustrating as well

For me touch mode control is the best.
Touch Screen Slide Stylus From Center of Circle Outward to Move, Controlling Direction and Speed. Touch Arrow to Zoom Camera In/Out.

Vrc could be very wrong - unless you are left handed or imbossibly gar.

But if you have those thumb things (strap on thumb, has stylus like tip to extend from it) the touch screen could be best.

Also, m64ds has a quite big changes, having yoshi, diffetent bosses, quite possibly made so meed for THAT precise conyrol isn't needed.

Just use the default two hand control style.
All the other setups involves the touch screen, which quite frankly I think is impossible to control.
Just see for yourself, if you can play well using the touch screen without accidentally dying all the time, then it might be suited for you.

Use whatever you think is easiest....

I personally preferred the D-pad, and only used the touch screen to spin bowser around on the boss fights (which otherwise i found pretty impossible).

But yeah, experiment, and find out which you prefer, and use that.
