Pentabulous / Re: no HID found

hmmm... I've used the one and only wiimote on the campus on every computer so far (until we are able to buy them) ...which is mine and is an authentic wiimote.  Darn!  :)

Pentabulous / wiimote

Will Pentabulous work with non-genuine Willmotes?  Trying to get my price down for our school.  If not we'll just have to pay the higher price because we DO want them to work!! =]  I think I had just read earlier that these wiimote IWB required genuine WII product...not sure if yours did as well.

Pentabulous / no HID found
« on: July 30, 2011, 08:25:46 AM »
I only have ONE computer that won't connect.  I've deleted all other versions of connection and have only the service pack and Pentabulous downloaded.  There is nothing else in the bluetooth devices.  All the other computers at school went on just fine.  This particular computer is xp (like the majority of them).  I've tried the BT device in each of the ports and have tried other BT.

On the same note, the screen that comes up to say there are no found HID devices... is there any way of clicking out of that screen to try again?  I have to do a restart for it to go away.  I CAN just close/disconnect for wiimote and try again, but screen remains. The OCD in me needs for the screen to go away!  haha

thx

Pentabulous / Re: a stand alone application?

going to answer my own post!  haha

The answer is YES it IS a standalone application!  If you already have mimio or smart software on your computer, this is really the way to go!!  We are in a Title 1 (very poor) district with practically nothing in the budget.....  this is wonderful.  Installed the Pentabulous and the Service Pack... came right up!  Thank you, thank you!  JoAn  LionGeek


btw I have Windows 7...

Pentabulous / a stand alone application?
« on: July 23, 2011, 11:55:34 AM »
Hello!  I am fairly new to the wii-technology but am loving what I see.  I have finally gotten the Smoothboard to work, then saw one of your posts.  I have tried researching your software online and am not coming up with a lot of information.  I DID read your pdf manual which was quite comprehensive and easy to read!!  When I go to youtube to see what there is about Pentabulous there... I am seeing that people are using SmoothConnect to connect?  Or they are using several different applications along with this one.

Is this a completely stand alone application that will connect my wiimote to make the whiteboard interactive?  And then from there...use Smartboard software (we have a district license) or Mimio Software?

From the pictures on the pdf I am seeing that this is a connect only?  Hence the reason for it being free? It did not appear to have all the pens and shapes/whatever...which is fine.. as I said we have the other softwares.   Just not sure if I'm seeing it correctly. :D  Will definitely try this out once I'm back up at the school again. And if this does work, would it be wise to remove the other wiisoftware or do they play together nicely?  Thanks in advance!
