Got the Wiimote to connect to the PC using the standard Windows BT stack. I run JCL's program and press button A to calibrate. I can calibrate the pen okay and as I click the pen all over the screen (I am using a projector) I can see the Visibible Dots number flash 12 (I guess that means the Wiimote can see the IR light).

But once I complete calibration, the mouse cursor jumps to and stays at the top left hand corner of the screen and won't move when I try pressing and clicking the IR pen on any other part of the screen. Only using the real mouse will it move.

This is WinXP SP2 and a Broadcom based USB BT adapter (though the adapter seems to be okay since JCL program recognises and allows for calibration and reading the dots)

Any ideas would be really appreciated

Thanks

Larry

Either a Wumote (fack Wiimote) or you have an external IR source such as sun light.

Hi,

Most probably it is due to a non genuine Wiimote as the cursor goes to the top left hand corner. Most probably the Wiimote is giving the output of coordinates 0,0 for the IR points.

You can try it using Smoothboard to see whether it works or not.
