    MonkeyNZ has released an unofficial update to the remote desktop application, Win2DS. For those not familiar, this lets you control your mouse, keyboard, and view your desktop from your DS. MonkeyNZ claims that in his release "both the client and server have been updated with new code to enhance the speed and quality of the service." Download and changelog below.

    [title:Changelog]client - updated code to compile with devkitpro r21 and dswifi 0.3.4
    client - optimised wifi code to greatly speed up throughput
    client - can move zoom screen with keyboard active
    keyboard - exit key now works correctly
    keyboard - lower screen updates disabled to enhance keyboard responsiveness
    server - mouse control now works perfectly with zoomed screen
    server/client - increased accuracy of touch screen aligning with mouse pointer
    server - changed scaling algorithm to halftone colors for much higher quality fullscreen image

    hmm, sounds kinda cool, can you use the internet browser within the program ie use firefox while accessing your pc with this program, also can you view whats in your folders too? like pictures, text files, mp3's and video files? can you run programs also?

    1.Run Win2DS.exe on the PC
    2.Run Win2DS.(for your cart)
    3.select auto detect (it should auto connect to AP)
    4.input IP of you PC
    5.Choose mode
    - virtual, control PC with screenshot on DS
    - gamepad DS will turn screens off (but I found a bug) and let you use DS as controller
    (similar to Virtual but no screenshot)

    custom key - select key you want
    disconnect

    make sure you have entered the right IP address (your PC's one)

    make sure the PC side program is running properly.

    make sure router settings allow DS homebrew.

    try that guys!

    thanks,
    currently my pc connects to my router for internet.
    if i want to play a game online with my ds it connects to my router also.
    does this program connect directly to my pc or the router ?
    if it connects to my pc how do i do this ?

    are there any step by step instructions for this ?

    it goes from

    DS to Router to PC
    and vice versa
    PC to Router to DS

    if ur using windows XP, go Start menu -> Run -> type "cmd" -> tap ENTER
    command box pops up
    type in command box "ipconfig" then tap ENTER

    look for IP Address........... XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX

    use that IP address on ur DS

    best homebrew on ds.
    Typing this using it. Though anyone know how to zoom in the bottom screen more easily, rather than using the top one?
