Hi,
Great job. I installed the "mac only" version on a powerbook G4 : i didn't have to do anything, and it worked well. Besides, the right click is available, without needing another IR pen, and that's terrific.
So I tried to use the java version under WinXP : no success Sad
It seems not to work with bluesoleil (especially installed in order to use johnny's prog), nor with the default Win driver. Btw, I'm talking about a driver, but I think BlueSoleil is no driver : I don't understand why Johnny's prog only works with blue soleil.
Could anyone tell me more ? I'm especially interested in making Java version work under Windows (without Bluesoleil would be great)
Thanks

Some users say they got it running on Windows with BlueSoleil. I did some further research since then and found out that it actually shouldn't work.
The technical reason is that BlueCove doesn't support L2CAP with BlueSoleil.
BlueCove is the JSR-082 Java Bluetooth Library I'm using.
L2CAP is a Bluetooth connection method that is used to connect to the Wiimote by a 3rd-party library in my program.

So long, the best advice I can give you is to use a recent version of WIDCOMM on WinXP.
In this case, I actually got it working with my and Johnny's software on Windows. No guarantees though.

As far as I understand, Johnny's program works with BlueSoleil because it allows to "pair" with the Wii Remote without having to use a key. I could also do this with the WIDCOMM stack.

Hope that helped,
Uwe

Could anyone who uses my software in combination with BlueSoleil please post a trace to prove that it works.
With trace I mean the console output when connecting to the Wii Remote having the system property "bluecove.debug" set to "true".

Run the JAR-version of my software like this:
Code:
java -Dbluecove.debug=true -jar WiimoteWhiteboard.jar > trace.txt

Then connect to the Wii Remote and exit the program. The resulting trace.txt is what I'm interested in.

Thanks!

Hi
thanks for your explaintion. However, I couldn't make it work with widcom : I can't solve the conflict with windows driver (I'm not very competent, but I tried)
So I'm still very interested with anyone qho made it work under windows. This program is much easier to use (especially in a classroom) : it's great one can right click, and I finaly understood the fonction of the IR camera (helps positionning the wii remote before calibrating).
thanks for any further help

I did get the program to work under Windows XP at first, but then it stopped working. I don't know why, but it started to only pick up the Wiimote in the middle of my television screen. ( I had my computer hooked up to my television.)I'm going to check to see if it is my ASUS Bluetooth adapter that is causing the problem. I have a AZIO Bluetooth adapter that I know works perfectly with Johnny's program.

Hi. I am new to the software but I was successful in getting it to work and it works great. I was wondering if there was a way to save the calibration of one monitor and then to calibrate another monitor and overlap the two as to be able to run two monitors that are being mirrored to each other to use the same wiimote yet each user will be able to use his or her mirrored monitor independently but the actions will show up on both monitors.


P.S. The monitors are seperated so there is no way to use one off of the other.

There are sensitvity issues which occur somewhat randomly. Try using the "Reset" button or restarting the program. While it's not convinient, it may help to get it working again.

Good luck,

I'm not sure I really understand what you mean.
You have two screens in seperate locations, which display the same content (mirrored). But you only want to use one Wiimote for both?

I may have said only 1 wiimote because my main idea is to have 7 mirrored projections around a conference room table so as to have every person attending the meeting to have their own computer in which to make changes to the project being presented and the changes would be shown on all computers, including the Activision Promethean board in the front of the room. I figured if I could solve this issue with one wiimote and 2 monitors, then I could use 2 wiimotes and use 7 projections.

Thank you in responding so quickly and I look forward to hearing from you again.

That seems kinda hard to do. In theory though, it could be possible to start the Wiimote Whiteboard software several times on a computer and calibrate each of them with another Wiimote to a different (mirrored) screen. I guess you'd run into problems with conflicting mouse movements and button presses when used concurrently by multiple users. And the calibration data wouldn't be saved properly to the filesystem (overwrite issues).
My software currently cannot be calibrated over multiple screens at once, thus one Wiimote per screen. It might be possible in a future release...

All right. I will look into working it a different way. Thank you very much for your information though.

I tried the AZIO Bluetooth dongle with the Java program and it would not work. It gave me an error saying there was something wrong with it or that it was incompatible. If anyone has got the program to work on Windows, please let me know what dongle you are using, which version of Java you are using, and which version of Windows you are using. Cry

Keep in mind that you don't need the wiimote connected prior to running the program. You might try to kill off all the bluesolie processes before you run the program and see if that works.

Is there someone who has tried this version with the Toshiba stack?
