Wiimote Smoothboard / Re: Want so badly for this to work....
« on: December 06, 2011, 06:52:11 PM »
You will need to troubleshoot an item at a time.
From the "symptoms" you describe, it seems to be a wiimote problem
The wiimote typically has a viewing angle of about 40 deg and an acceptable distance of about 3-4m away. So if can get somebody to help you, look at the calibration window in smoothboard and click the IR pen. You should see a IR dot registered.
Start at about 2m away and directly in front of the wiimote. Then move slightly to the side and do the same. Do it until you are unable to see the IR dot. You would then have a rough estimate of the viewing angle of the wiimote.
Do the same with the change in distance from the wiimote.

If you can borrow a wiimote you can just try it out to really confirm that the wiimote is not faulty.

What wiimote software( Smoothboard?) are you using and what Bluetooth stack as well?
If you are using the widcomm stack you would need to manually remove the HID devices each time before connecting. It is recommended that you use the Microsoft stack.

3
If you are using the Widcomm stack you would need to manually delete the HID devices before reconnecting the wiimotes.

It is recommended that you use the BT which uses the Microsoft stack. Smoothconnect would then help to connect your wiimotes.  You can try to use this installer http://bluetoothinstaller.com/ to use the MS stack. You would need to uninstall the widcomm  driver first

Hope this helps

This normally happens to non genuine or faulty wiimote.
Do try with another wiimote. You should get at least 40+ degree angle and placing the wiimote about 3m away should not be a problem. Try to achieve at least a 40% track utilisation

When the MAC address is highlighted, it does not mean that the wiimote is installed properly yet. You will need to wait until the device installing status say that it has successfully installed hardware(this will appear in the bottom left corner). In the meantime you will need to repetitively(on & off) press the 1 & 2 button until you launch Smoothboard.

Hope that helps

I totally agree with Neils and Kev.
If you have problems , do bring it up with Boon Jin. He will try to guide you step by step through the connection process. Once you get it working correctly, you will be amazed at what it can do.
The first time connection is  normally a problem with non tech savvy teachers. But after the first success connection , connection after that takes less than a minute.

With just one  tech savvy teacher in a school, he/she will be able to guide the rest on the use of the technology.

Just imagine being able to equip 10 - 15 classrooms for the price of one hardware based solution It is definitely worth the effort to get the IWB to work.

Don't give up

So what actually made it work or what configuration was wrong before

Smoothboard dongle version can be installed into a USB thumb drive and operated with the special dongle attached but it is a bit more expensive than the normal single user version. This version however could be used in any computer as long as the special dongle is plugged in.

Hope that helps

Hi

Unsure of the policy in New South Wales. Is it because you cannot install any programs into your laptop? What Operating system are the laptops using - Windows, Mac or Linux?

If you are using windows platform- win XP, Vista or Win 7, Smoothboard should work. You can always use the dongle version if you are not allowed to install programs

Wiimote Smoothboard / Re: Smoothboard with Glove PIE
« on: May 13, 2010, 07:25:07 PM »
You should be using Smoothboard with 2 wiimotes ie in Whiteboard and presenter mode.
1 of the wiimote(fixed) would be used as a interactive whiteboard while the other you can carry around and do your presentation.

Hi Jasoman

There are a few things you can try.

1)   Check your computer for virus/malware
2)   Go to device manager and delete/uninstall all Bluetooth HID/ virtual HID devices under the Human Interface     Devices, then reconnect the wiimote
3)   If you are using the MS stack, other bluetooth stack should be removed
4)   Remove and reinstall the batteries in the wiimotes

Normally if SmoothConnect can connect then should not be any problems after that

Have you tried using this application?
It works great on my XP machine. It makes the XP recognise the BT and uses the MS stack instead of the widcomm

Wiimote Smoothboard / Re: Smoothboard and Windows 7

Hi

You should try uninstalling/removing all Bluetooth HID/ virtual HID devices in the Human interface Devices list in the device manager before you start Smoothconnect. You would need to pull out and replace the batteries from the wiimote before starting

when trying to connect the wiimotes, press the 1+2 buttons repeatedly(sometimes it takes a while to connect since it needs to "learn" the wiimotes and the wiimote goes off sync mode before actually connecting) until Smoothconnect say it is loading application(smoothboard)

Hope that helps

I have tried it on my Dell inbuilt bluetooth which was using the Widcomm stack. Now I can connect my wiimotes using Smoothconnect. So covenient. I used to have an external usb BT dongle. Now no need anymore.

Great application.
