I didn't know I had to put the WiiRemoteJ and BlueCove jar files in Extensions, but once I got that figured out, it paired and loaded fine.
1. I can not check the Cursor Control box. Maybe this is on purpose, because you're trying it out or something. I don't know.
. It is not sensitive enough for some reason. It can't read the LED when I draw on the whiteboard, it doesn't even see the IR dots. When I aim the LED back at the WiiMote, it can see it, but not well, and it doesn't receive a steady signal.
I know this is OSX-specific because I rebooted into Boot Camp and it works like a champ. The WiiMote is in the same place and everything.
Good things:1. It seems to work on the main monitor only on a dual-monitor setup. Maybe that's just the way it's supposed to work (it's the same way in Windows), but that's the way I like it.
2. It's finally going to happen on OSX! I've been waiting for this since I first heard about it.
3. It's in Java, which I have been meaning to learn about anyway. My little brother is bigtime into Java so he can help me learn to program again (it's been about 15 years, and that was in BASIC).
If there's anything specific you want me to try or look in to, let me know.
Ive been messing with your program on Mac and PC. I have it working well on both. On both XP and Leopard, it's more receptive and sensitive than the original wiimote whiteboard. I have yet to find any major flaws in it. Good work.Since you havent gotten it to work on pc, if you want me to check anything or elaborate, just let me know
I too don't seem to be able to register a source (I don't have an IR pen yet, but I've used a flame in the past for testing in Windows). It connects fine and gets a battery reading, but no dots or any sort of recognition that it is seeing IR. Thoughts?
By the way - you rock for porting this to Java - I work with Java IRL and will be happy to add on to it!
My initial testing shows that if I run it from XCode, I can see an IR source. If I run it straight from the JAR file, I cannot. I'm not sure how to interpret that.
Im using the Bluesoleil stack, it was the default stack with my adapter.
An ordinary flashlight.... with an IR bulb, I'm assuming?
WiiRemoteJ and BlueCove are bundled with the program (inside the WiimoteWhiteboard.jar), so it should work without putting those 2 files in the Extensions-folder.
You can only check the Cursor Control box after successful calibration or when a calibration file was found at startup and has been loaded.
Can you elaborate on that? I didn't have an issue with that, but I only tested with a flashlight since I don't even have an IR pen yet.
Did you run the original or my Whiteboard-program under Windows? I couldn't get my program to work under Windows...
