Wii Remote Plus Bluetooth Communication

Hi to all!

I bought a Wii Remote Plus (RVL-CNT-01-TR) for using to comunicate with my computer. I was able to pair it (programmatically in Java and using bluetooth tools from MacOs), but all the other successive communication fails. I am not sure if all the software I used to test it was written using some protocol supported only by the previous version of the wiimote. So far, the best place I got information about the protocol of the wiimote was on the wiibrew. I am using MacOS and I am trying to do the communication using Java bluetooth stack. My main objective is to respond on the button events as well as the accelerometer, but I even could run any simple test, such as controlling the LEDs for example.

So, given my scenario, let's ask the questions:
1 - What is the best piece of software for me to look at that communicates well with this version of Wiimote (RVL-CNT-01-TR)? No problem at all with Linux only implementations but MacOS or Java is preferred.
2 - Is there any documentation describing the protocol and messages in detail?

Thanks in advance for everyone!

Kind regards,

You should look at libogc or dolphin code. Both of them have the code to comunicate with the Wiimote.
