Hi,
I did the test with wiimoteTest, and it seems to worked for me...
I did for you an animation in flash .rar file:

http://www.megaupload.com/?d=M9EC6OSW

In fact when the soft starts there are no dots detected. and when the pen is on, it detect is coordinates with no problem (inverted). Sometimes the soft detect another dots but I just think it's occuring with reflects from the sunlight on my skin.


Hi,

The rar file seems to contain a .js file
Can you please check it?

Regards,
Boon Jin

The real Wiimotes are Grey etched teh fackes are moulded in.

So the ones with grey text printed are genuine, and the ones with text actually moulded into the plastic are fake?

I have one of each, so what's a good way to test performance? Because they both seem pretty solid.

Thanks

Hi,

I have just made a release candidate of Smoothboard that hopefully should work on some of the non-genuine Wiimotes.

Here is the link:

Thank you.

So it's working !!!!
Today, I tried it with my screen and without IR pen (a remote). It's working with that !!
there is no more dots detected all the time and the calibration can be done.
Tomorrow I'll be in my classroom, I'll test it with IR pen and projector.

benpaddlejones,

Since the images in the first posts are somewhat blurry, I will have to ask. I hope you won't mind. Smiley I do have two Wii Remotes. One of them came in the pack with the Wii Console and the second was bought as a stand alone product. Their etiquettes do differ but I still cannot be sure if some of them is fake, so I will place them here, and hope somebody can judge them. You can use these images in your first post.

*edit*
Actually, after reading this topic, I can conclude that both of them are (supposed to be) genuine. Just, the first one (that came with the Wii Console) is a Korean and the second one (bought as stand alone) is a Taiwan model.

BUT, I have to notice that the accelerometer behaves a bit strange in a Korean (the one that came with the Wii Console) model, and I had to program a special module that calibrates it. The problem is that it does not sense G-zeros with an equal value by any of three axes.

The one that came with the Wii Console (supposedly a Korean model):


The one that was bought separately (supposedly a Taiwan model):

Misha
They both look real, its the casting that is the best tell tail sign. The official Wiimotes are well cast and clean finsih the Wumotes have casting edges on them and are not that well finished.

If behaving funny just return to the store you purchased it from.

I have experienced the fake Wiimotes and that was the horrible experience for me. I am still astonished at this time.
