    I put SNemulDS on my new R4 today, and the emulation runs surprisingly well. The only problem is that I the touch screen doesn't seem to respond correctly.

    The little [*] icon to hide the touch screen control buttons work perfectly, but none of the buttons actually respond to any presses. This means I can't save states, open roms, etc.

    Does anyone have this working on the R4, or is this a known problem?

    Thanks [​IMG]

    v1.11 Firmware and SNemulDS 0.6.

    We need firmware version. Did you use the firmware from the CD?

    it's probably your ds screen going bad.

    im running snemulds 0.6 on 2 different R4s on 2 different ds lites. one (black) has perfect touch, the other (launch white) is a bit wacky. needs a bit more pressure it seems.

    edit - try to recalibrate the touchscreen from the ds menu [​IMG]

    R4 firmware is 1.14, I didn't use the firmware that came on the cd.

    This touch screen has been a bit inaccurate, but hasn't had any problem with actually recognising the touch. The button for hiding the touch screen works perfectly, too.

    I just put the R4 in a different DS and it worked fine, so I guess it is the touch screen. Strange thing is that I just tested Picross and the DS menu, and the touch screen is fine for those, just a little inaccurate.

    That's interesting.
    Just wondering - how new is your DS?

    It's a DS Lite, bought the day of release. So I guess that's about 1.5 years old. It also doesn't successfully pass touch screen calibration.

    That pretty much means your Touch Screen is dead.
    Well.. You're not under warranty, so I guess you gotta get it fixed for a free, or get a new DS.

    It passes calibration if I press the stylus to the left of the points, so the accuracy is off. Nintendo quoted something like AUD$60 to repair it, which is over a third the cost of a new DS, so I'm thinking about trying to replace it myself.

    It's just strange that for some games the touchscreen is fine, for a lot of games it is inaccurate, and for SNemulDS it just doesn't work at all.

    I can't use the touchscreen as well with SNemulDS on my M3, except for the little icon that sets the lower screen on or off.

    All other games/apps work fine with the touch screen. Any clues?

    This is a late answer but I was experiencing this same problem. It's pretty easy. All you need to do is re calibrate the touch screen. Go to the touch screen setting on your ds and then tap the orange dots accuratley, then after 4 times or so press select then press ok and your system is now re calibrated. I can now use the menu now. I haven't seen this answer anywhere on the web regarding this precisely, so I hope this helps even though it's probably too late.
