Re: setting up 2nd wii remote
You need to resynch the second remote to the Wii console. To accomplish this you need to hit the sync button under the battery cover on the remote, and then when the lights are flashing on the remote, you hit the sync button on the Wii. The synch button is located under the small cover to the left of the cd/dvd slot.
You have to press the red button that say sync and the red button that also says sync on your wii console at the same time.Or go to home and go to wii remote settings then press 1 and 2 at the same time

Can't remember off the top of my head but I think there is an option to choose how many players (including cpu) will be playing. You might have it set to 2. Go through the steps to setup your game and see if there might be an option to increase the number of players. You might think the number of players are referring to human players but it could be for ALL players. the game won't allow you to play 4 players with only 2 controllers anyway so try that out.
turn on your wii with mario party 8 disk in thje wii click the home button click wii remote setting then click reconnet fallow what the screen tells you with all four players then start mario party 8 if this dose not work then have all the players open the back of there wii remotes open the little slot below the disk place there will be a red button matching the one on the back of the wii remote have each player one at a time move up to the wii click the red button on there wii remote and the red button on the wii at the same time after all the players do this then start mp8. if this dose not work your wii is messed up. P.S (this work almost all the time) From, cutECAT333
There are 2 ways to connect remotes on Wii. The way that the remotes sync permanently to a Wii system and the second one that connects the remote temporarily. To connect the remotes pernanently, open the flap on the front of the Wii and press the red sync button. Then take the remotes and press the buttons 1 and 2 at the same time. Do the same with the other controllers
The second way can be done via the Home menu. Go to home menu pressing the home button and then point the remote to the bottom of the screen (where a wii remote is iconized) Then go to the synchronization menu to synchronize the remotes. Press 1 and 2 of the remotes to get synchronized.
The time you press the buttons on the remotes determines the player assigned to it. For example, the first remote you synchronize is the first player, the second is the second player etc.
Also, I strongly advice you to READ THE MANUAL seriously... do it.
try resyncing the second wii remote for a second player. By using the red button on the wii and the wii remote. I had this problem when i brought my wii remotes to my friends birthday party to play mario party 8.
