got it working!,

I purchased a LINKSYS class 1 USBBT100 usb bluetooth adapter, and this working with the default BT stack, i.e. no BlueSoleil, and no changes to the code, except to make the desktopVR program a windowed app.
I also removed the showcursor hiding method in the code.

I hope this helps somebody who had the sort of problems I had.

FYI : I'm running Vista 32 bit, DX10, VS2008, .NET 3.5 on a HP dv9500 series laptop, I installed the bluetooth software that comes with the Linksys USB BT adpater. The DesktopVR app and the Wiimote Lib test application both work.

Now to build a headset!,

Regards, ( especially atomriot )

Mmmmninny ninny num num ...ok deep breath, so it seems my internal bluetooth for my HP Dv9500 laptop doesnt work, with anything, BS or windows stack. A tad annoying, I really don't get why we have so many compatibility issues with something that is effectively defining a protocol...does it not?.. makes one wonder about the future of 'bluetooth'

anyway...rant over..I wanted to ask for some advice..

Question is what USB bluetooth adapter can you recommend?
I'd prefer to run the windows stack rather than blue soleil if possible..
I'm running vista, I'm UK based so if you know of the ideal place to get the right adapter for cheap please post a link.

many thanks,
Ps. running DX10 isnt an issue is it for any of johnnys apps is it?

This is the same problem i get with bluesoleil, previously my bluetooth device was confirmed to pick up the wiimote, and at least it could see it. However the wiimotelib test app would not recognise it, so I felt I had to go down the blueSoleil stack route.

Whether running BS or its equivalent 'bluetooth places' desktop icon it always returns the error, 'Can not start bluetooth. Bluetooth hardware is not found'

Its a broadcom bluetooth adapter that came with my HP dv9572ea laptop, vista 32 bit.
drivers all up to date, reboot etc so I've exhausted everything I can think of.

As atomriot suggested, i dont think i am 'trying to access the windows utility'

ok thanks for that, can you tell me what the test app is called?... i can only find one main() entry point in the wiidesktopvr project and no supplied executables or assemblies pointed me in the same direction, under the section 'Getting Connected'

i uninstalled bluesoleil, well the uninstaller crashed so i did system restore ...

hoping that my broadcom bluetooth will work with the default bluetooth stack,

ok so manually connected to the wiimote and it can see it no problems... so far so good, but don't know if it will work.

built the wiimoteVRdestop app Vista 32bit / VStudio 2008...few problems

    - fullscreen doesn't work, so reverted WiiDesktopVR::doFullscreen to false
    - messes with my mouse visibility when debugging even when running windowed. mmm
    - the app cant detect my wiimote, and basically enumerates a couple of devices that dont have the right vendorid and productid..... if(attrib.VendorID == VID && attrib.ProductID == PID)
any sanity checks appreciated...


im having the same problem, the same error message, with my broadcom bluetooth on my laptop

- its switched on.
- its got latest drivers for everthing bluetooth like in my device manager.

I also cannot determine where blue soliel is installed...

a bit naff this bluetooth milarky...

IR Pens / IR Led Specifiaction

firstly well done Johnny Lee!.. great stuff, have you had any job offers from Ninentdo yet? I'm a game developer and I'm on a mission to get his working on my laptop as a first port of call.

However, the glasses require a few questions...

what type of IR Leds should I purchase?
what voltage to power them with? Resistor or potentiometer?
is it worth doing the leds at either side of the glasses in clusters?

Further, where might I get something like this in the UK? The electronics superstore in the UK is but seems to have only one type of 950nm IR Led.

Perhaps there is a specification docs on the standard sensor bar that give clues?

Best regards,
