hey everybody  :D

I am relatively new to the Wiimote Project scene, and have one basic question concerning connectivity of a Bluetooth device and functionality. To sum up my problem, I am thinking about developing a piece of software that could use ONLY the wii NUNCHUCK (I have something called the I-too, which is basically just the nunchuck used for Nintendo Wii systems).

I am looking for a driver or some kind of library to help me use the Nunchuk to interact with my laptop computer. I have been to the downloads section, but it seems that almost all of the drivers/libraries are developed for the WIIMOTE, which is the other piece of hardware that I do not need for my project. All I need to use is the Wii Nunchuck, and I seem to be having a hard time finding this. I am beginning to wonder if such a driver exists for only this piece of hardware.

If anybody can point me in the right direction so that I can get started on this project, it would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks in advance guys !!!

Instead of looking for a driver for only the nunchuk, look for one containing both the wiimote and the nunchuk and, if you know how, edit the driver so it's only for the nunchuk.  In addition, I also believe the I-Too is wireless and the nunchuk driver would have to be made compatible for it to work since the nunchuk is not built wireless.

Good luck with your project, and i hope i have helped at least a little.
