    I would like to play Phantom Hourglass on my TV and I have my PC connected to my TV. Do you guys know of any programs that will allow my to use my DS as a controller? if so does it allow the use of the bottom touch screen?

    Closest you'll get would be to use DS2Key(GBAtemp downloads->Homebrew for NDS->DS2Key (SVN)) and set the program to use the touch screen as a mouse. The only way I can think of to emulate the touch screen would be if you used a program like No$Zoomer with No$GBA and somehow do fullscreen with your bottom screen(Not sure if it's possible.)

    That's all I can think off.

    Completely unnecessary. We can already use the DS as a controller through DSjoy and other programs. We just need one that uses the touchpad in such a way that it could easily work with emulators. It'd probably have to be a modification made to the emulator as well as the software running on the DS.

    It shouldn't be necessary to modify emulator code. It might make things easier, but it wouldn't be the only way to do it. Server-side applications (that's the one on the PC, for those wondering) could have a "frame" system, for example. Place the frame over the lower screen on the emulator and mouse input will be confined to the frame instead of the whole screen. I'm sure there's other (better) ways to deal with it, but that's my first thought.

    I didn't want to bump this thread but, I can't seem to find this "DSjoy".
    Filetrip gives 0 results, google gives some japenese stuff.
