some other light source (sun, Halogen, incadesecnt) may be the cause.  See if you have anything like that interfering.

Hi,

It is possible that the wii remotes you have are the non-genuine ones which will cause the software to register 4 IR dots all the time.

I have made the latest Smoothboard 1.1 to be compatible with these non-genuine Wiimotes.

It can be downloaded from here:
http://www.smoothboard.net/files/download/Smoothboard_1_1_1_0.exe

If the problem still persist, most probably you have other IR light source present.

You can use the Calibration viewer to see in real time the positions of the IR dots detected by the application.

Hope this helps.

Regards,
Boon Jin

How well do the non-genuine wiimotes work with your software?

Hi,

It should be working just fine. However, it depends on the Wiimote you will be using.

Hi,
Used to get an identical problem when I had my first experimental set it up in October last year. I have skylights across my whole classroom on one side and windows on the other. Sunlight or reflection can trigger this problem. Also if the batteries were a little flat, the frustrating problem you mentioned would happen. I have converted my wiimote to AC power and have never had the issue since, even with the skylights. It's been running 6 hours a day, 5 days a week - no problems. Check your batteries.
