Wiimote as a pc mouse
February 24, 2009 10:01PM
A few days ago I bought a belkin Bluetooth, a wireless sensor bar and a wiimote, I have vista, I've tried omg so many things to try and make this work, and I can't find anything that works like marcan42's ( wiimote as a mouse ) this is his youtube video demo of what he set up, yet I can't for the life of me find out how he's done this.


I did get mine working somewhat, but to go left or right I need to rotate my wiimote, nor does it seems very responsive. when I saw marcan42 write words on your screen so fluidly I was like aw man.. I neeeed it!, lol!

please for the love of all that is wireless, help me out! or point me int he right direction, or thread if I posted this in the wrong area,

Thanks ahead to anyone who can help me out

I recently bought a Bluetooth adapter that also doesn't seem to work. It's this one: [www.focalprice.com]

BlueSoleil will recognize it, but it won't connect (all four LEDs on the remote keep flashing). I've tried everything, and I think it just might be the adapter. Anyone else have experience with the same one?

Well I talked to a friend last night who does alot of wii hacking, unfortunatley, he hasn't figured out the mouse yet either, he got his working as far as i got mine, "having to rotate the wiimote to go left or right" which is imo, not worth using, Marcan!!! where a are u man? lol.. help!

If you want marcan, go to the IRC.

1- I don't know anything about marcan's software, so I'm recommending using GlovePIE.
2- Wiimote Compatible Bluetooth Devices
3- Vista can be difficult to connect with. Basic tip, at each dialog of the connect process, check and make sure your wiimote is still in discovery mode before hitting ok. I usually will wait for it to stop, then reinitiate it to make sure it doesn't drop off during the discovery process.
4- In order to not have to tilt the wiimote to move the mouse left and right, you must have some sort of sensorbar. As far as coding the script, I'm not certain, but I know Glove comes with a bunch of premade scripts, including a mouse control script or two.

I am using glove pie, I suppose I will try look for more pre-made scripts, however if anyone else has had the same success as marcan42 has, please let me know :)
