Hi, I tried to use WIIP for playing games , I have a Need For Speed installed on my laptop which can be played by the four directions , so I setup every thing and test it using the notepad all was fine, however when starting game it doesn't work !!, the only thing I can think of that the game is being played in full screen mode unlike the test which I ran in notepad so (no full screen or such a thing). do I missing something here ??

Thanks in advance

Hi,

To play games, GlovePIE will be suitable as it will be able to emulate a joystick function
Smoothboard will be more suited for desktop games and also navigation in presentations.

I don't understand version 1.6. It seems to insist on working in laser pointer mode. It is ignoring my IR clicks on the calibraction targets, and seems to want me to press my IR light button all of the time.  When I do this it sort of anchors the Wii remote then the remote starts to move the mouse pointer. The mouse will go to wherever you point the front of the Wiimote. This may be a better way to work the system accept that there are is not way to right or left mouse click by default. I would suggest moving, "activate callibration" to the 1 button, putting "left mouse click" on the A button, and "right mouse click" on the B button, the trigger. Also, please I need a better write up and a warning if you are going to change the way the system works so radically. And you have may have just destroyed the market for IR pens for me for a lot of other vendors on here. Now we will need to make permanently on IR "lamps" instead of push to click IR light pens.  I eagerly await your response.

Hi Shakepere1212

Have you used earlier versions of Smoothboard, I do not think it has changed at all. Under presenter mode alone, it always require a fixed IR source to use "laser" pointer. You do not need to calibrate, just an IR source at the screen. The settings for the buttons is up to the individual which can be changed in the settings sheet.

If you are using the whiteboard and presenter mode(2 wiimotes) then you will need to calibrate the primary wiimote(for whiteboard) and "calibrate" fixed ir source. You can also change the settings for buttons for the presenter wiimote.

Hope that helps

Hi,

The software is unchanged in regards with the presenter and whiteboard mode. For version 1.6, we have added the automatic wiimote connection feature, SmoothConnect.

If you are want to use the IR pen to interact like an interactive whiteboard, you should set the software to Whiteboard Mode. In this mode, you will be holding the IR pen and the Wiimote facing the screen. You will need calibration in this mode by pressing the A button or clicking on the Calibration Button.

On the Presenter Mode, you will be holding the Wiimote and the IR source will be at the screen. This mode will allow you to control the computer while you are away from the screen. For this, the IR source will be fixed and always-on. This mode does not require any calibration as the Wiimote just tracks the IR source. Each button on the Wiimote can be assigned to a keyboard or mouse action.

If you are using two wiimotes, both modes can be used simultaneously which is by default the Primary Wiimote for Whiteboard function and the Secondary Wiimote for the Presenter function.

Thank you for the clarification. I did use version 1.5, and I have had two remotes. I was not aware that the "presenter" wiimote was doing anything with it's IR camera. I thought that you were just supposed to hold it in your off hand while you were using your IR pen and then you just had easy access to mouse clicks and program launches.

Thanks again for the clarity.

Hi James,

The Presenter mode is actually very useful when used together with the Whiteboard mode like you have mentioned.

You can take a look at Jason Smith's video where he introduces the Wiimote Presenter software that he originally developed: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c7JaravPeKc&feature=player_embedded
