How Control Your PC with a Wii Remote –

Control Your PC with a Wii Remote –

While some of us who jumped on the Wii bandwagon have a great time with Super Mario Galaxy and Cooking Mama, there are undoubtedly a few regretful gamers who just can’t get the hang of Nintendo's waggle-based gaming console. But there’s no need to chuck that Wii out the windows yet---you can use the Wii Remote as a wireless pointer for your PC!
   Find a compatible Bluetooth Adapter -
The Wii Remote uses Bluetooth to connect to the Wii, but Windows will also recognize it as a human Interlace Device. To connect the Wii Remote your PC, you’ll need a compatible Bluetooth receiver. Most new laptops have integrated Bluetooth, but you can also purchase a USB Bluetooth receiver online for less than $25. 
 
Pair the Wii Remote with your PC -
I paired the Wii Remote with our Dell laptop using the "Add Bluetooth Device" option in the Windows control Panel. For the laptop to recognize the controller, I also had to press the red sync button in the Wii Remote’s battery compartment. Your PC should detect it as Nintendo RVL-CNT-01. No Bluetooth passkey should be required.
 
Run WiinRemote software –
Now, download and launch the latest version of WiinRemote  (Download  it from http://onakasuita.org/wii/index-e.html). If you successfully paired your Wii Remote, the program will let you calibrate the motion sensor and assign buttons. By default, The program user site controller's gyroscope to control your mouse cursor. The Wii Nunchuck peripheral’s analog stick will also control mouse movement. Yon can achieve more accurate control by activating their sensor, bus you’ll need to mount two infrared light sources above your monitor for this to work. The Wii's IR light bar is suitable, and I powered it by splicing its proprietary plug into a USB cable.

So sit back and enjoy the comfort of using a PC with a remote......

Mario doesn't spin when i shake the wii remote. :(


Mario isn't supposed to spin at first, he gains a star friend that enables him to spin. To spin, just shake the remote from side to side. If you have gotten the star and he still doesn't spin, make sure your batteries in the remote aren't too low or try resetting your console.

Super mario Galaxy Trying to start on the first level and mario just keeps running about at the circle. I dont have much control and cant get him to go up the hill. As soon as you get to the bottom of the hill he keeps turning around then runs the other way. Is this a fault with the disk as I only bought it today for my son.


Normally the reason this happens is because while the game is loading, the joystick on the remote/nunchuck is not straight (someone is playing with it) causing it to run in circles when it's left in the open position. Simply reset your system and avoid holding the joystick in any direction while it's loading.

Good luck!

Respectfully,

Don
