Did you know the Wiimote's capabilities reach far beyond the uses Nintendo is limiting it to? It's true, and in this tutorial I will show you how to connect your Wiimote to your computer and open up a limitless range of opportunities.
Most people don't know that the Wiimote communicates with the Wii via a Bluetooth wireless link. The Bluetooth controller is a Broadcom chip, which is deed to be used with devices which follow the Bluetooth Human Interface Device HID standard, such as keyboards and mice. The Wiimote is capable of transmitting huge amounts of data to the Wii Nintendo just isn't utilizing it's capabilities thus far. By using the internal Bluetooth wireless link, you can connect your Wiimote to your PC any OS , and use it with a wide range of applications already made for the Wiimote.
Note: If any of you are having difficulties with this, just send me a message here. I'll be glad to answer any questions you may have. First, you need to find out if your computer has an internal Bluetooth adapter. While some desktop computers have an internal Blutooth adapter, most require an external Bluetooth dongle. Most recent laptops come with a built-in Bluetooth adapter. To check if you have a built-in adapter, look at your PC specifications.
Note, if you need a Bluetooth adapter, I recommend buying one here. That's the exact same one that I use, it's cheap and it comes with the BlueSoleil driver on an installation disk. If you don't have BlueSoleil already installed, you can download the latest BlueSoleil drivers and software from Softonic. Also, you're obviously going to need a Wiimote to connect to your computer! It will take a few seconds to find it. You need to make sure that the LEDs on the Wiimote are blinking the whole time, you can either press them the whole time or every couple seconds.
Note: If BlueSoleil does not detect your device on the first attempt, unplug your Bluetooth device or shut it off and plug it back in. Then press the center orange circle and try again. You will now see that the Human Interface Device icon at the top of the window is in a box and highlighted yellow. Click that HID icon at this point.
The Wiimote icon and Bluetooth HID button should now be highlighted green, and there should be a dotted green line going from the Wiimote icon to the center orange circle this means it is connected. You are done! Question 8 months ago. I tried to use the wiimote to work the whiteboard, I downloaded smooth board software, the laptop tells me that the device is ed successfully, but the problem that when the smooth board face comes out on the screen a note is existed There is no wiimote is found.
Is there software different to bluesoleil to connect the wii remote to the laptop? It makes mine crash and upsets the Bluetooth connectivity itself. I would like to know a little bit more technical details about supported Bluetooth version and Bluetooth Profiles in Wiimote Bluetooth ,please?
Reply 4 years ago. Remove the battery panel on the back of the Wiimote and press the red button at the bottom right. That's a reset button, and it may help. Reply 6 years ago on Introduction. Hi AdithyaR1, sorry for the delay in my response. I've been traveling internationally for the last 5 months. Did you resolve the issue and get it to work? There shouldn't be a passcode required. The only reason I could see that happening is if you're using a pirated copy of Bluesoleil software? You are trying to pair the WiiMote with the computer but pairing is not necessary, just a request of services.
The bad thing is you need to reconnect every time you want to use it, just like the cheap bluetooth keyboards for Android and Ipad tablets that don't have any pairing management. Anyway, I'm not sure if it is possible to pair the WiiMote with the PC so it doesn't need to reconnect every time. Im on a Macbook Air running Windows 10, the bluetooth can see everything in my house except the Wiimote. I really dont know what to do. One time it connected but the computer would not recognize it as a joystick Gamepad.
You can also use a connected Wiimote to play games on your computer. Do some googling and you'll find software that supports it. Would this also make the nun-chuck be usable? If so do you know how it will be usable like normal controller usage, or mouse like? I will be doing this either way though for the VR-esk side of it, the controller side will be a bonus. Hello, I have tried doing this to use in the game osu! Reply 5 years ago. Note: I have recently upgraded to Windows 10 Enterprise through the free upgrade.
My computer had to be downgraded to a bit operating system along with a x64 processor, so just in case, do you know if the upgrade could've affected my BlueTooth capabilities? If you are using a DS3 you cannot use any other BT devices. As the DS3 tools clearely state that it overwrites your BT dongles drivers to make it work for the DS3 but in doing so makes it so no other BT device can pair with it. I would like to know if, following this instructions, this would work as a light gun to play Time Crisis, House of the Dead and other similar games on MAME.
