View Full Version : Virtual keyboard problems

November 26th, 2006, 11:31
Heya. I'm using Supercard Lite, and some homebrew apps with virtual keyboards seem to have issues on my DS. Happens with at least IrcDS and DS Live Weather.

If I try to hit a letter with a stylus, there's only a small chance that it produces the wanted letter: for instance, if I try to hit '5', it might result as if I pressed shift or 'n' or anything.

It's not a stylus calibration issue as far as I know, as the letters might be even a few centimeters apart.

Am I the only one with such problem?

No you're not, I've noticed on various different homebrew applications that there virtual keyboards are hit and miss, sometimes i get the desired key, sometimes its something TOTALLY different, not even near the key i pressed. I haven't noticed this on keyboards of offical games so I just guess that its hard to code perfectly, and only the pro's have mastered it. But I'm not sure.

Just letting you know, its not your DS.

Ah, thanks for the quick reply!

I guess I'll just have to grind my teeth and keep making typos...

Edit: Oh. I forgot that you can mostly bypass the problem by tapping the vkeyboard really quickly.
