HID Wiimote Update 01.07.2014

Today i borrowed a Wii Remote with Plus inside, one of the newer ones (RVL-CNT-01-TR) with the Sync Button on the battery cover. My hearings were true, they have a different hardware ID, but that was just a minor problem and fixed with one line in the INF-file. The bigger problem was, that they differ a little bit in behavior. So in the end you can’t connect the new Wii Remotes by pressing the 1 and 2 buttons, instead you have to use the Sync button each time. There were some additional trouble, but i fixed that as well.

Another new feature are a second X and Y axes for tilt. Currently tilt is only tracked by the accelerometer, so it’s a little bit inaccurate and you have to hold the Wii Remote still. The Motion Plus gyroskop is not supported yet, but that will be my next task. You might need to recalibrate the asxes via the gamecontroller properties dialog. The reason is, that all Wii Remotes are not well calibrated, so the middle, minima and maxiuma are a little bit shifted.
