Here's a clue for you, the DS is a handheld device that often requires you to be using both the shoulder buttons, control buttons and touch screen all at once, while it may very well be emulate a second screen on your PC it's never ever gonna come close to feeling like holding the DS in your hand, being able to control the shoulder buttons, Dpad and tap the touch screen with your thumb at the same time.
So, while you are busy holding your mouse in your right, or left, hand , pretending you are using a touch screen, I can't help but wonder what your other one spare hand will be doing?, going for the emulated shoulder buttons, emulated dpad or emulated xyab buttons or touching your penis to remind yourself how clever you are...
Perhaps you can hold your mouse in one hand and other control device, joystick or keyboard in your other hand, perhaps you'll look a tool trying.
Perhaps you could run the emulator on a laptop instead of a big clunky desktop, that might work, you could even pretend it's a big old ds and that the touchpad is an emulated screen, you'll still look like an ass trying to control it all, unless you plan on growing another arm or something.
But hey, if you think that's a great way to play games, then be my guest, personally I'll stick to my ultra portable, slip it in my back pocket, play it sat on the toilet , easy to control DS.
