Question about EA - Electronic Arts Boom Blox for Nintendo Wii

Open Question

Cursor not tracking properly

I bought Boom Blox the day it came out from Amazon. Out of the box I aiming was problematic. If you aimed away from the screen, it was VERY hard to require a target on the screen. And the cursor didn't seem to track properly.
But this was only a problem with Boom Blox. Not on the console, or any other game I have. I shelved the game assuming that it was poor programming, and hoped someday there'd be a fix. Recently a friend came over and wanted to play. He regularly plays Boom Blox at another friends house. And he confirmed that this problem is ONLY on my console or with my disk.
We experimented trying to describe what the problem was with tracking. One thing that we found was when you move the remote horizontally side to side, the cursor moved diagonally. No wonder it's so hard to aim :-) My sensor is properly placed on top of my tv. My settings in the Wii are set for the sensor to be on top, and I've experimented with the sensitivity adjustment. But the game is still 'almost' unplayable.

SOURCE: really incredibly frustrated with boom blox-

Don't have a fix for you, but I will tell you we're going through the same thing. It's really sucking the joy out of the game for us. We just quit playing because it's more frustrating than fun. Tried Nintendo's 800 number, but they were "currentlly experiencing a high call volume" and I was told by an automated voice to call again some other time. Really don't know what the fix would be, seeing as how I feel like we've done everything possible to solve it - just as you said. Please post here if you find a fix!

How do track my order from amason


Hello, Trudy -

You probably received a confirmation email for your Amazon order. If so, go to your email inbox and look for an email from Amazon. Open that email and follow the directions for tracking your order.

Or, you can go to Amazon.com and log into your Amazon account.

After you are logged in, move your computer cursor to where it is printed "Hello, Trudy." Right below that greeting you will see Accounts & Lists. Left click on that link.

Then, you will see an Amazon page with boxes. The box on the upper left side should be labeled Your Orders. Left click on that box.

I hope you can figure out the rest.

Best wishes.

Hi Franklin,

I am a technician at AiM Sports and can tell you that this problem is a first for me. My best suggestion would be to ship the unit into us along with any of the sensors in question. We can usually cover MyChron4 repairs under warranty and turn them around the same day. If you decide to ship the unit in, please include a note explaining the issue along with your contact information (daytime phone and return shipping address). You can ship the unit to either of our two U.S. offices...

In wii Boom Blox, the cursor with the remote has become reversed


When you get to the wii menu, with the icons. On the lower left hand corner, youll see an icon where you can access settings. Click on this, from there go to the option that says "Sensor Bar" If its not on the first row, Just select the arrows opposite each other on the sides of the screen. From there you can diagnose your problems.
