Programmers Den / Re: About C program for communication with Wiimote
« on: November 17, 2008, 04:20:46 PM »
It's all pretty much in the manual. 

1) You have to tell it how many Wiimotes you will need to connect to and it will create a structure to hold all the data for you, then you use this pointer in all other function.  Look at the sample program that comes with it.

2)I think it does update automatically, but you still have to poll for data, like what buttons are up and what is the xyz from the accelerometer.

3)It looks pretty fast.  Run the test program and try it out.  It looks pretty fast for me.

4)Read the manual.

I think I'll use WiiUse.  I've looked at the documentation and it looks pretty clean and simple.  Thanks.

I'm not sure if it's possible, but that's a very interesting idea!  I think it would be possible to put a pointer on the screen, but how would they select that menu/button/thing on the screen?  They would have to use a button in their hand?  Maybe one of those Easy buttons from staples?

The Infrared camera detects the leaking chemical which is so call heat of the infrared led right? Sorry for asking this newbie question just want to make sure...

The camera detects the light from the IR Led.  There's no chemicals involved.  The IR Led puts out light at a wavelength/spectrum that our eyes can't see.  The IR Camera is setup to detect this "invisible" light.

I like to use or
I'm trying to get some OpenGL stuff done, so maybe it would be better to stick with C++?

Hi, I'm new here.  I'd like to start developing software for use with the wii-mote.  Are there many dev libraries around?  Are they free/open source?  Where can I find them?  I'm interested in getting all the info from the remote to the computer through bluetooth.  I guess that's the easiest way to do it right?

Hi, just saying hi.  I'm from Canada and I'd like to start working with the Wii Remote.  The projects I've seen look impressive.  I've been looking for a project that I can on the road with me.  This should fit well.  I'm a programmer of all things.

How do I view the download section?  It keeps saying that I'm not allowed to view them.
