Win2DS *Unofficial* v0.8

Recommended Posts

Win2DS / DS2Win v0.80f

January 11, 2008

-------------------------------------

 

This is an unofficial build of the Win2DS client and server, both the client and server have been updated

with new code to enhance the speed and quality of the service.

 

Changelog:

----------

 

0.80f "ultra-licious"

server - very yummy new icon (thanks TPDK!)

client - ULTRA speed option added for the (current) maximum possible frames per second

client - applied dswifi hack for faster TCP communications (thanks masscat!)

 

0.80e "revenge of the zoom"

server - increased security (server will require correct password before allowing mouse control)

server - Capture alpha blending (transparency) is now an option (will make cursor flicker - no way to avoid this sorry!)

client - hold R button and use ABXY to change zoom ratio of zoomed screen

client - changed gamepad mode to (hopefully) improve functionality

 

0.80d "attack of the keys"

server - mouse cursor no longer flickers while remote control is active

server - zoomed screen now stops at the correct full screen borders when scrolling

client - all keys now respond instantly when pressed (previously pressing a key would only sometimes get a reaction)

client - zoomed window scroll rate increased

client - mouse will now move smoother

client - click-drag operations are now possible in zoomed view

 

0.80c "the phantom CPU minutes"

server - added low quality option for fullscreen to decrease CPU usage on slower systems

client - holding L button while zoomed screen is on lower screen will now allow enable quicker scrolling using stylus

 

0.80b "return of the battery"

server - disabling sending of screens if nothing has changed (will increase battery life/performance significantly)

client - keys now repeat when held down in gamepad mode

client - screens power down when lid is closed

client - screens power down when in gamepad mode

keyboard - all keys now work correctly when shift or caps lock is on

 

0.80a "inputs strike back"

client - allow touch with the pen in zoom screen to click mouse

client - holding L and using ABXY will now use cursor keys

server - all the different mouse pointers (caret, resize, etc) now display correctly on the DS

 

0.80 "a new code"

client - optimised wifi code to greatly speed up throughput

client - 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

 

 

Getting it working:

-------------------

 

Dont use channels 0 or 1 as the wifi libraries have a weird bug which doesn't let these channels work.

(I use channel 10)

 

Also make sure port 8888 is open on your firewall (windows firewall and on your router if you are

accessing it remotely through the internet)

 

Go to Control Panel -> Windows Firewall

 

Click on the Exceptions tab, then click Add Port, enter Win2DS for the name, and 8888 for the port then

make sure TCP is selected and click OK.

 

Find your computers ip address by starting a command prompt and typing ipconfig

 

Provided your wifi is set up (using DSOrganize or a Nintendo Wifi Connection game) it should work fine with

Auto Connect, just type in the ip address you saw in ipconfig (ie. for 192.168.0.1 key in 192.168.000.001)

 

*** Important Note ***

Turn off scanning of the extension ".JPG" in your antivirus software - this program is constantly writing

new .JPG files to send to the DS, this will speed up performance huge-mongously (I hope I spelled that right).

 

*** Note for people with slow CPUs *** - the faster refresh rate you set for the part (and particularly full

screen view) the more CPU power is taken up. So the new ULTRA mode may use up a lot of cpu cycles and should

only be attempted by professionals.

 

 

Instructions:

-------------

 

Once you have connected you can use the following keys:

 

- hold R button and use ABXY to change zoom ratio of zoomed screen

- hold L button and use ABXY to send cursor keys of keyboard

- hold L button and use stylus to change zoomed area focus

 

- Thumbpad

- left to left mouse click (hold to drag)

- up to middle mouse click (hold to drag)

- right to right mouse click (hold to drag)

- down to send backspace

 

- ABXY move zoomed screen

- START opens menu

- SELECT opens keyboard

Feel free to distribute this release, so long as proper credit are given to everyone involved.

Neither Bill nor me are responsible should you accidentally/purposely use this to delete the interweb

(or whatever else you do with this program) in fact should anything happen, I'd probably blame Steve Jobs.

Extra Info:

Check for the latest version at http://www.1emulation.com/forums/index.php?showforum=89

Thanks 1Emulation, for a great message board and resources for the DS homebrew community!

 

If you are interested in DS development and want to help develop this project please send me a PM on 1Emulation.

 

For another great desktop control homebrew project check out DSVNC, the latest version is 0.3e and its available from

the NeoFlash forums (signup required). Its zoom-screen scrolling is a little faster than Win2DS but the screen updates are

tons slower, worth a look though! (particularly if you want to access your PC over the internet, as it uses less bandwidth)

Working awesome!!

 

thanks alot for the update!

 

though i wonder if you might be able to implement a change such that in

 

Gamepad Mode: It recognizes when you hold down a button such as left/right/up/down, so you don't have to keep tapping it.

 

Same with keyboard open, holding down a key would keep repeating the key press.

 

if you could do that without much hassle it would be perfect!

Great homebrew!!!

But there are something I want you to...

 

Fix

-gamepad mode screens don't turn off

 

Add

-gamepad mode mouse sensitive config in menu (I think it's too slow)

-sever IP recognize, so I don't have to type IP every time.

 

Thank

Thanks for updating this, now I can play viva pinata on my ds via my pc :). Oh and can you maybe add support for a ram pack so that win2ds runs smoother?
