Can't get a 2nd player to work

It says have player 1 start game then player 2 press 'A' and join in.
Doesn't work - am I doing it wrong or is there a trick? I would assumed based on what I've seen that the arcade modes can be 2 player games.

Fixed problem. Had to sync the remote with the Wii system by pushing the red button by the batteries on the remote and the red button on the Wii console under the flap below where the disk is inserted - hadn't done that. Now HOTD works like a charm with 2 players.'

Cars game only has one player as an option, how do I open/unlock 2 player mode? Tried 1 and 2 on second remote, nothing happened.

  • From the Disney/Pixar Toy Story Mania! opening screen, press the 1 button on Player 1 Wii remote to start.

  • At the "How many players?" (color palette) screen, point to the number of players (1 through 4) and press the A button.

  • Point to the desired color for each player and press the A button on the corresponding Wii remote. The player's number will be displayed in the color (for example: 1 in yellow, 2 in purple). Point to the green arrow and press the A button to advance.

  • At the name entry screen (Mr. Spell), starting with Player 1, point to the letters and press the A button to select. Once Player 1's name has been entered, point to "Enter" and press the A button to advance to the next player.

  • When all players' names have been entered, you may select from Story or Freeplay mode to begin playing. Freeplay mode will only contain games that were previously unlocked in Story mode. For more information on Disney/Pixar Toy Story Mania! game modes, see the game manual.

    We can't get two player mode to work in Wii Star Wars. We press the + on the 2nd controller and the player will not drop in. The blue lights show the controller is working. Why is this not working?

    Press the home button, select Wii Remote settings, select reconnect, and press the 1 & 2 buttons at the same time on the Wii Remotes you want to connect. - I just did this and it worked a treat.

    SNES Controller 2 Port Not Working

    The 2nd Player controller port just might be shot. That or the part of the main board that deals with the 2nd controller. My suggestion is purchasing another controller board (the main board and controller board are separate and easily removable pieces) and switching them out. If the problem persists then the SNES's main board probably has an issue.

    The trick is, you have to sync up the 2nd controller to the Wii before starting the game.

    Turn on the Wii, there's a small cover below the DVD drive that you flip down, (This is also the spot where your SD Memory card can go) There's the red button.

    Open the battery area of the 2nd Wii remote. You'll see a small red button.

    Press both the red button the Wii Console & the Wii remote. Then it should turn on & Sync.

    Once that's done, start the game. It will then recognize the 2 controllers.

    You'll see 2 wii remote's on the main screen (1) & (2) Once that's sync'd your ready to play!

    Cannot play Tiger Woods PGA 09 with 2 remotes

    Tried that, but the 2nd remote won't respond when we try to use it to pick second player. My question is why in the world would someone create a game that is sooooo difficult to play!? Picking two players with two remotes shouldn't be so hard to do!!!
