Remote Touch DS gives you the opportunity to remote-control your computers mouse, keyboard and other things from your Nintendo DS hand-held console. This solution is not like remote desktop, but more like an advanced remote control.
The solution is client-server based, obviously, and requires you to have a server running. It is not plugged with synergy, it is my own solution. The server receives commands from the Nintendo DS and acts according to them.
Lifehacker - Supercharge Your Homebrew-Hacked Nintendo DS
This is a major release and contains lots of bugfixes and new improved features. Support for custom key-mapping. This also release features a completely rewritten server-backend in Java. This means the server will work cross-platform (Windows, OS X, Linux and other *unix variants). I would be glad if people running Linux or other *unix variants would give me some feedback.
0.6 (major) * Up on D-pad in "cursor"-mode for middle mouse click. * Complete revamped server-backend rewritten in Java with full GUI (will work cross-platform; Windows and OS X/*unix etc.). * Add support for custom key-mapping (gamepad-like feature) - configure this with the new server-backend GUI. * Custom adjustment of mouse acceleration. 0.3 (major) * Y button in "cursor"-mode for ALT. * A button in "cursor"-mode for TAB. * X and B in "cursor"-mode for scroll. * Adding left/right shoulder buttons to also mimic mouse clicks. * Accelerated cursor movements; much like a real touchpad. * Fixing problems when reconnecting to the server. You are now able to reconnect to the server without having to restart the server! * Implementing a battery-saver feature - when the DS lid is closed. * Upgraded to dswifi to 0.3.10. The wifi connection is much more stable now. * Corrected X and Y on keyboard and fixed some of the currently missing keys. I have a problem locating all the keys. * Added onscreen cursor to the client making it easier to see last cursor position. * Removed manual input of server IP and port. You now need to put a "rtds_config.txt" in the root of your cartridge with this data. * Server partially rewritten - fixed problem with reconnect. * Client GUI features/eyecandy implemented. Also better netcode. 0.2.2 (hotfix) * Minor changes on the server backend - possible problem with shutdown/restart on XP (maybe) fixed. 0.2.1 (hotfix) * Not able to connect properly when manually inputting connection data now fixed. 0.2 * Media Control Extended (MEX) - good for Media Center or similar. * Keyboard fully calibrated and working with key press sound for comfort. * Remote restart or shutdown of your computer - good for those late night movie sessions where you just want to shutdown your computer directly from the comfort of your bed. * Added support for a "rtds_settings.txt" config-file on your cartridge with connection data - look in README.txt for more info. 0.1 (first public release) * Mouse and keyboard support + media play controls. Keyboard needs serious calibration, will be done later.
(Read 'README.txt' in .zip before you ask any questions please :))
The server will run on all systems that is able to run Java applications - this means just about every system possible (Windows, OS X, Linux and other *unix variants) - the only problems that could emerge would be with media key key-mappings or shutdown/restart commands.
