Say Hi! / Hello from Central Texas
« on: March 20, 2011, 07:49:47 PM »
Hey everybody, I'm Tim from Central Texas.  Here on wiimoteproject because I'm helping somebody build a wiimote Whiteboard for use in a classroom.  Having technical issues with software and bluetooth, but hopefully we'll get around it.  But it seems this is definitely the place to be for all things wiimote.  It's nice to be here.

EDIT: Actually the "technical issues with software and bluetooth" are turning out to be "troublesome issues with what may be a counterfeit Wiimote."  Just found out about it yesterday.

Wiimote Java Whiteboard / Cannot calibrate, camera view seems wrong.

Running Mac OS X 10.6.4, and using the .dmg packaged version of WiimoteWhiteboard.

The wiimote connects fine to the application, but I cannot calibrate.  When I use my IR pen, the program reports Visible Dots 2 and 3 visible, but they do not show up anywhere in the IR Camera Monitor.  If I move the pen to a certain place (which appears to be well within the wiimote's visible area), I can get Visible Dot 2 to appear on the top border of the Camera Monitor area, but moving the pen around makes the dot disappear.  As if the Camera Monitor area only shows a part of what my Wiimote is actually seeing.

Judging by where on my projection screen I can get Visible Dots 2 and 3 active, I have an idea of where on my projection screen the wiimote can see, but this has absolutely no correlation to the Camera Monitor's interpretation.  If I try to calibrate, nothing happens no matter where I point with the pen.

Has anybody else had this problem, or would anyone know what might be the issue here?  Is it possible that the bluetooth communication isn't going through right?  And out of curiosity, why might it be seeing dots 2 and 3, but not 1?
