  1. Wow, its been a while, I've been looking around lately and the DSi and most likely the DSi XL don't support pressure.
  2. Well the Pressure control would be used for a tablet feature, which would be the mouse because of the ease of stylus, pressure giving it depth, I myself have a tablet, but those who don't would benefit, and I know what it's like not to have a tablet, it really sucks. I know all the stuff I included in my pictures arent going to all be in the next update, but it's something to maybe shoot for. The panels are left to right then top to bottom. 1. - 3. This is the top screen in different modes, the only difference is the 'Mode' Label. This is where all the settings are here. To use the Top screen click on the bottom right of the bottom screen, this will switch the screens back and forth. 4. This is the main Mouse / Button mode. Options that affect this mode are: Mouse Selection (Should have modes relative and the other(dunno the name) and Mouse/Buttons (Dictates weather the mouse and buttons [or both] are active, touching a mouse zone will activate the mouse then the user will be allowed to slide into a button space without activating the button, this is curently available). 5. This is a Media Player consisting of Play/Pause, Stop, Next and Previous (and possibly a system volume, but when I tried to assign it in the config it didn't register). Options that affect this mode are: Media Player (This allows the selection of Windows Media Player and other common players). 6. This is the Pressure Calibration Screen. Here under Max you push as hard as you would, safely, while drawing. Under Min you press moderatly, when you reach this pressure your screen in mouse mode acts as a left click, anything bellow this level will only move the cursor. Options that affect this mode are: Pressure Sensitive (This allows no pressure, pressure and pressure only to click). 7. Is a sample of what the mouse / button mode would/should look like with some keys assigned to NONE. 8. Is a sample of a dropdown menu, the dropdown disapper when click, activating the selected. The 'Mode' dropdown will automatically switch the screens back. Hope you like it. If theres anything I didn't explain, ask, but I think I covered everything.
  3. A cursor aspect, both like a mouse pad (drag and droping the cursor...I can't really explain it) and where the walls of the touch screen are the walls of the computer screen, would be great for those who want to draw on the computer but don't have a tablet. Pressure sensitivity as well, there's a homebrew called "colors" and it actually has calibratable pressure sensitivity, the Touch button visual sectoring is a good idea. Another thing i would want to add, would be (if its possible) to be able to eject the flash card and put it in a separate ds, so two player can play game on one computer. well thats what i think. Edit: ok well, i found out how to use the mouse, but a mouse pad would be realy great be cause, i found you can assign a single button and allow the screen to still acct as a mouse, this would be handy for say halo, jumping and switching weapons would be assigned on one of the side walls, then using the rest of the screen as mouse activation, there after you can still use your mouse in button zones, as long as the stylus is still on the screen. You can assign all but one touch button, and still have mouse (I would leave the two most centered buttons as mouse activation). also, id like see that the menu button be made smaller. maybe only big enough you have to put your stylus right up to the corner, maybe you sould make it customizable? I always manage to hit it. Edit2(lol): I have a keyboard called Alchemy Elixir, it has media and browser keys on the sides, so i tryed to map to them, the keys registered in the DS2Key computer program, but when I pressed the buttons assigned nothing happened. There is a driver for the keyboard, but I don't have them installed and they still work, Ithink the code is something like 'MEDIA_PLAY' I'm currently opening windows media player, having assigned ctrl and f(next), b(back), p(pause/play) and s(stop), then running around the house doing chores with my ds as a song selector and my wireless headphones. if you could, either find a way to acsess these media comands, or allow a media section. im also working on an image of what the screens could possibly look like.
