    Is anything in the works, or is it not even possible?

    Not joking, the wiimote hand could act as the stylus.

    Wait... what?

    A Wii emulator on the DS, or a DS emulator on the Wii?

    You do know they use ways to control that you can't emulate on each other...

    The way you have the topic, your looking for a Wii emulator on the DS...

    I suppose it's POSSIBLE, I mean, the Wii IS powerful enough to do it (I think...)

    @zidane_genome: I think he means DS emulator for Wii.

    honestly, I don't think it would be practical... unless you can use the classic controller AND the Wii remote..

    that's the only way you'd have enough buttons...

    Well, it's not like you can use the classic controller without the Wiimote. [​IMG]

    Yeah, and if you clipped the classic controller to the Wii Remote with that clip-thingy, and used ZL or ZR as something to "press" the touchscreen...

    ... can you think about this please. To play with what you said properly you would need three hands. I want you try doing that with two hands. It would be so bad it wouldn't be worth the effort of even getting your sd card form your wii let alone all the coding that would be required.

    The controls would be possible. I use the iDeaS DS emulator on my PC, using one hand on the mouse and one hand on a controller plugged into my PC. It works just fine that way. For a Wii you could point at the screen and use A to click, and use your other hand with the classic controller. The problem is that emulating a DS on a Wii wouldn't be possible yet. As good as iDeaS is, we don't even have perfect DS emulation on a PC at this time. I would think that it would look fairly good on a TV if it was possible though. Since the DS's resolution for each screen is 256 x 192, both screens could fit on a standard-def TV screen without having to be scaled down. It would be hard to point accurately with a Wii remote on such a small part of the screen though. I would say in the future it might be possible, but definitely not now.

    My point was, you would need to use the Wii Remote AND the Classic Controller AT THE SAME TIME...

    Meaning, yes, you would need the remote clip on thing so you can point at the screen WHILE holding the controller... otherwise, you'd need 3 hands, as stated...

    left hand for the dpad and L/ZL, right hand for A/B/X/Y and R/ZR... maybe you can strap your Wii Remote to your penis (or place it in your vagina if your a girl) to point it at your TV... hey, just a thought!

    I still say it's possible if you clip 'em together. Enough buttons, touchscreen capability.

    Verdict: PLAUSIBLE.
