Through GlovePIE, the Wii Remote’s buttons and D-pad , tilting and motions , or full gestures can be mapped to keyboard keys, mouse movements, or virtual joystick controls more on this later. Fan-made ‘Half-Life’ remake ‘Black Mesa’ is nearly complete. Again try Smoothboard and see if you can get a connection. One of the most ingenious traits of the Remote is how its shape allows it to be held any number of different ways. You’ll notice that there are a lot of premade scripts. But with the game industry being a business first and foremost, developers are often pigeonholed into sticking with what’s proven to work and sell.

GlovePIE is a very powerful application that allows you to customise how a controller interacts with your PC. Your issue is different to BenjaminBustamove so if you can’t get working start a new thread so we can help benpaddlejones. You can try to figure out how things work by picking apart some of the Wiimote scripts that come bundled with GlovePIE, but if it all reads like Martian to you, don’t worry — you can use the GUI and let GlovePIE bang out some script code for you. With PPJoy-specific code in a script, a Wii Remote, Nunchuk, or Classic controller can have its sticks, buttons, d-pads, or even motions mapped to generic joystick functions.
The Widcomm Bluetooth Setup Wizard showing devices in range. Video of the Day. To do this, start the Bluetooth program and tell it to search for devices while holding down 1 and 2 on the Wii Remote. Shopping from the products among these community-updated lists is probably the best way to be sure you’ll get a setup that’s Wiimote-compatible, though you may get lucky with something that isn’t listed.
Now your ready to play! There may be other bugs as well, and you should refer to both the GlovePIE documentation and the Bluetooth software documentation for troubleshooting. A controller can take many forms, including game control pads, joysticks and the Wii remote!
If successful, the first LED on the Wii remote should be lit up. With it, you can turn a Wii Remote into a mouse, joystick, or even script it for unique functions in games and software. Unlike the Xbox controlleror the Wavebird for Gamecube, the Wii Remote uses Bluetootha non-proprietary wireless interfacing standard, to connect to its mother glovepiie.
If you haven’t got a compatible Bluetooth interface device built into your computer, you can purchase a USB Bluetooth adapter. The Wii Remote has a deceptive appearance, in that the sparse distribution of buttons and complete absence of any bouetooth sticks make it look downright archaic in comparison to the standard of modern controllers with dual-analog sticks and an abundance of pressure-sensitive buttons. In this article, I’ll be focusing on getting started with GlovePIE, but there are other programs that use the Wii Remote, or translate its input.

I don’t have a problem connecting my wiimote to my computer via bluetooth, it detects it and lets me connect as desired Of course, GlovePIE isn’t the only game in town if you’re running Windows, and we will be covering some of the other mods and applications in future installments of Revolutionary.
For star power, navigate to the star power entry, hit bluetootg enter key and then shake the Wii guitar. WiinRemote is a fun program to start off with.
In each of those cases, the homebrew community can play a part. Motion, gestures, and tilt can be used to perform a lot of the tasks usually delegated to analog sticks and buttons, and the pointing feature that the IR sensor provides, allows objects, characters, and the camera to be interacted with and manipulated with a degree of swift and acute precision that isn’t afforded by analog sticks. To submit your questions or ideas, or to simply learn more, see our about us page: That’s great for us, because it means we can also connect the Remote to other devices that use Bluetooth.
You’ll notice that there are a lot of premade scripts. If successful, the blue lights on the Wii remote may continue to flash.
Writing a script really can be that easy! The 1 and 4 player indicator lights at the bottom of the Wii Remote should be solid to indicate that it’s connected. To get smoothly responsive controls analogous to using a mouse, you’ll need a Sensor Bar, or other source of infrared that the IR “camera” at the front of the Remote can “see” and track.
Now load the GlovePIE script as described above and then load the game. I used to be able to use GlovePIE 0.
