Title: How to use wii nunchuck
Post by: RainbowDash on February 29, 2012, 11:20:36 AM
Hello, I'm sort of new to using I2C communication and controlling the wii nunchuck, so I was just wondering if anyone could either help me out or point me to a page that could explain the basics of doing this? I know this sounds kind of vague, but as I said, I have almost no knowledge of what I don't know and what I need to know, so if you could all think back to that first time you ever looked at this sort of stuff and help me out, I would greatly appreciate it!

Also, if it matters, I am using an Arduino Uno microcontroller.

1. Attach the Nunchuk to your Wii remote by inserting the Nunchuk plug into the connector outlet located on the bottom of your Wii remote. Push the Nunchuk plug in until you hear it click into place.

2.Hold the Nunchuk with your thumb on the analog stick and your pointer finger on the "Z," or "Trigger" button. Hold the Wii remote and the Nunchuk in front of you, pointed at your TV to prepare for game play. Use the Nunchuk for your weaker hand in games like boxing.

3. Employ the Wii Nunchuk as a standard remote, with the analog stick controlling character movements, when playing games such as Zelda. The targeting control for the game is done by using the "Z" button.

4. Use the Nunchuk for more accuracy in games like Mario Kart Wii. The analog stick gives more control to your movements than the gaming wheel and cuts down on the paraphernalia cluttering your living room.
