looking for a little clarification

Hey all, i'm just looking for some answers to a couple of questions.

 

I've looked through lots of posts and stuff on here, and i've pretty much gathered that you probably need the ds usb wifi adapter to use ds2key. BUT i really didn't find any 100% solid information saying that you do need it. I dunno, I could have missed that somewhere. So i want to just clarify if you do need it or not?

I've also seen people using ds2key to play games on emulators, but i was wondering if this works with other games, like the pc version of ff7 for example. I guess i basically want to know if this works with gamepad supported pc games in general. I thought it would be a good idea to clear this up before i went out and spent 40 dollars on the adapter, only to have it not work for what i wanted it to.

 

thanks.

You do not need the DS usb wifi adapter. As long you connect your DS to the same network as your computer running the DS2Key server, you'll be alright. That means you can use a wifi card for your computer or a wireless router/ap.

 

I'm not too sure about your other question, I have not gotten DS2Key to work yet. In theory though, you should be able to use it as a gamepad, but you may need to install PPJoy, that is unless you plan to have each of the buttons correspond to a keyboard key press in which case you won't need PPJoy.
