I’ve finally finished the IR-Mouse Version of HID Wiimote!
With that driver you are able to control your mouse pointer by pointing your Wii Remote at your screen. You just need some kind of IR source with up to four points, but best is a Sensor Bar.
The input is slightly steadied but has therefore a small input delay. You can download the driver from the HID Wiimote page. If you are looking for the old DPad-Version you can find it here.
Additionally i made a small update to the Gamepad Version. I fixed a small issue, so the input state is reset when the connection to the controller is lost. You can get the update from the project site as well.
Next i am going to work on the XUSB communication, so i can create a XUSB/XInput Driver for the Wii U Pro Controller.
New IR-Mouse Version
- Tracks up to four IR-Points
- Interpolates with previous points to steady
- Therefore slight delay
Changes to Gamepad
- Input State is reset, when the connection is lost
Yay, Update for HID Wiimote! The Nunchuck and Classic Controller (Pro) Extensions are now supported. In Addition to that the Wii U Pro Controller is supported as well.
I’ve added a lot of Buttons and some more Axis as well as a Hat Switch to the Properties Dialog. The Button Mapping switches dynamically when an Extension is plugged in.
With my Wii Remote the Extension is sometimes not correctly detected. In that case you have to remove the Extension and plug it in again until it works (Sometimes take up to 10 tries; but maybe my Wiimote has just a loose contact and there is normally no such problem).
My next task is creating an IR-Mouse driver as many have requested. I’ve already made quite good progress on that.
I would be very happy when you spread the news and this Blog entry or the HID Wiimote Project Page is shared on Facebook, Twitter, Reddit and all other sites.
Last but not least, i am streaming my coding sessions on Livecoding.tv and Twitch.tv. So feel free to join my streams and ask questions. My regular streaming schedule is every Monday starting at 08:00 PM (Berlin/UTC+1).
So get the newest version here.
