Project Ideas / Guitar Hero drums as electronic drum set
« on: January 30, 2010, 06:29:20 PM »
Hi all! I've started this project knowing nothing about connecting Wiimotes to a computer. I'm so close, but I need help finishing it. I've got the Wiimote connected, and I made the GlovePie script to turn drum hits into keyboard strokes. But that's where my luck ends. I figured I could type some keys by hitting the drum set, but the lights on the wiimote turn off, even though it's still connected. Also, would you know of some programs to make the drum sounds?

Does anybody have some helpful advice to give me, please?

Thanks in advance guys!
Zach :)

I'm at a loss for what the problem is. I've had it working twice, but only for like 30 seconds. I've uninstalled and reinstalled the drivers, tried the WiimoteConnect software (which says no wiimote found), and tried just about every tip on the forum. I had the Widcomm stack installed, but removed it when I read that the MS one would work better. And I know that my bluetooth works, because I use a bluetooth mouse with the same laptop. Also, the adapter is on-board. Please help me :D

Update: It is showing up in the bluetooth devices, and in the HID list in device manager. I'm pretty sure it connects, because the lights constantly blink after pairing.

Update 2: Got it to connect again, but it was only for a short time. Why does the connection keep slipping?

Thank you!
