Greetings,
   I've found a lot of software that provides access to the wii remote, but has anyone written an actual driver to make it appear as a gamepad to Windows XP yet?  Haven't been able to find one so far.

Thanks,
Mike

Try out GlovePie http://carl.kenner.googlepages.com/glovepie
It also includes wiimote support

Thanks, but it's not quite what I'm looking for (e.g. a device driver). PPJoy, one of the programs GlovePie makes use of - is closer.  Hoping to just make the Wii remote appear and act like a gamepad in the control panel and elsewhere without messy scripts and all that.  If no one's written one, might give it a shot myself.

Cheers,
Mike

Um, why?  Userspace drivers (programs like GlovePIE) are more, well, safe than BSoD-inducing kernel device drivers.  Plus, GlovePIE can manage your Wiimote well enough already, and is customizable to boot.

And I don't think there is such a program (no one wants to muddle around in asm, methinks).

I say, why the hell not?

If you think you can make it (better), do it.
