Voltaris Posted October 1, 2005 Share Posted October 1, 2005 Okay, this is getting ridiculous. Here's a few things about DSWifi. WHAT IT IS: -> DSWifi is an API - it's a bunch of functions used by coders in their program to be able to connect to a wireless router and to connect on the internet. A "connection" means a transfer of raw data (bytes and consequently, characters like 'A', '8', etc). That's all, nothing much. WHAT IT IS NOT: -> A browser. A browser will use the DSWifi to surf on the internet but a programmer will have to code it. -> Something with a graphical interface. DSWifi is NOT a program - you can't "execute" or "launch" DSWifi. It's just a bunch of sentences in several text files. -> An IRC client. A test application is being developed in order to show the capabilities of DSWifi but understand that this application is only using DSWifi. -> A hacker tool. DSWifi will NOT help you to copy games and will NOT replace any hardware solution already available (like PassMe or a GBA Flash Card). DSWifi is used in a program so this one has to be loaded before being used on the Nintendo DS. WHAT NOT TO EXPECT IN MID-TERM: -> A "useful" browser. Just forget it - no one know how to use the anti-aliasing functions built-in so all pictures will look like a bunch of colorful disorganized pixels. Anyway how can you resize a 400 pixels wide picture on your monitor into a marvelous 41 pixels wide picture on the DS screen? -> MMORPG. We don't have any good games right now so don't expect WoW to be ported by the homebrew community on the DS. WHAT YOU CAN ALREADY PREPARE YOURSELF FOR: -> A RSS reader! Check Slashdot news on your DS from everywhere! -> A mail client. -> Games! Tic-tac-toe, Dual Tetris, turn-based games. -> An IRC Client. Of course. I hope that this will clarify a few things...
