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!

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...

How do i adjust the head lights on a 1997 grand marquis


AIMING THE HEADLIGHTS

On 1989-91 vehicles, the headlights can be aimed using the adjusting screws located above and to the side of the headlight bulbs. A rough adjustment can be made while shining the headlights on a wall or on the rear of another vehicle, but headlight adjustment should really be made using proper headlight aiming equipment.
On 1992-98 vehicles, the aerodynamically styled headlights necessitate the use of headlight aiming kit 107-00003 or equivalent. The adjustable aimer adapters provided in the kit must be used to aim the headlights. Adjustment aimer adapter positions are moulded into the bottom edge of the headlight lens. Set and lock the adjustable adapters, attach each adapter to its mechanical aimer and aim the headlights according to the instructions in the kit.
Headlight aim adjustment should be made with the fuel tank approximately half full, the vehicle unloaded and the trunk empty, except for the spare tire and jacking equipment. Make sure all tires are inflated to the proper pressure.
The headlights must be properly aimed to provide the best, safest road illumination. The lights should be checked for proper aim and adjusted as necessary. Certain state and local authorities have requirements for headlight aiming; these should be checked before adjustment is made.

CAUTION About once a year, when the headlights are replaced or any time front end work is performed on your vehicle, the headlight should be accurately aimed by a reputable repair shop using the proper equipment. Headlights not properly aimed can make it virtually impossible to see and may blind other drivers on the road, possibly causing an accident. Note that the following procedure is a temporary fix, until you can take your vehicle to a repair shop for a proper adjustment.
Headlight adjustment may be temporarily made using a wall, as described below, or on the rear of another vehicle. When adjusted, the lights should not glare in oncoming car or truck windshields, nor should they illuminate the passenger compartment of vehicles driving in front of you. These adjustments are rough and should always be fine-tuned by a repair shop which is equipped with headlight aiming tools. Improper adjustments may be both dangerous and illegal.
For most of the vehicles covered by this guide, horizontal and vertical aiming of each sealed beam unit is provided by two adjusting screws which move the retaining ring and adjusting plate against the tension of a coil spring. There is no adjustment for focus; this is done during headlight manufacturing.
Because the composite headlight assembly is bolted into position, no adjustment should be necessary or possible. Some applications, however, may be bolted to an adjuster plate or may be retained by adjusting screws. If so, follow this procedure when adjusting the lights, BUT always have the adjustment checked by a reputable shop.
Before removing the headlight bulb or disturbing the headlamp in any way, note the current settings in order to ease headlight adjustment upon reassembly. If the high or low beam setting of the old lamp still works, this can be done using the wall of a garage or a building:
  1. Park the vehicle on a level surface, with the fuel tank about 1 / 2 full and with the vehicle empty of all extra cargo (unless normally carried). The vehicle should be facing a wall which is no less than 6 feet (1.8m) high and 12 feet (3.7m) wide. The front of the vehicle should be about 25 feet from the wall.

See Figure 6


1ad3b8e.jpg
Fig. 6: Example of headlight adjustment screw location for composite headlamps
  1. If aiming is to be performed outdoors, it is advisable to wait until dusk in order to properly see the headlight beams on the wall. If done in a garage, darken the area around the wall as much as possible by closing shades or hanging cloth over the windows.
  2. Turn the headlights ON and mark the wall at the center of each light's low beam, then switch on the brights and mark the center of each light's high beam. A short length of masking tape which is visible from the front of the vehicle may be used. Although marking all four positions is advisable, marking one position from each light should be sufficient.

See Figures 7 and 8


9018da5.jpg
Fig. 7: Low-beam headlight pattern alignment


fa6b141.jpg
Fig. 8: High-beam headlight pattern alignment
  1. If neither beam on one side is working, and if another like-sized vehicle is available, park the second one in the exact spot where the vehicle was and mark the beams using the same-side light. Then switch the vehicles so the one to be aimed is back in the original spot. It must be parked no closer to or farther away from the wall than the second vehicle.
  2. Perform any necessary repairs, but make sure the vehicle is not moved, or is returned to the exact spot from which the lights were marked. Turn the headlights ON and adjust the beams to match the marks on the wall.
  3. Have the headlight adjustment checked as soon as possible by a reputable repair shop.

Hope thats helped (remember rated this) Good luck.

Is your antenna "omni" or "uni" directional? "Omni" means you won't have to aim the antenna but "uni" antennas have to be pointed in the direction the nearest tower/s. You'll want to go to AntennaWeb.org and enter your address. This will show you locations and distances of TV towers in your area. My location is over 39 miles from any tower so I get virtually no reception with regular HD antenna. If your more than 20 miles you'll need to get a fairly high gain antenna and have to aim it in the direction of the TV tower.

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.
