hello,
I am new to the hole wii whiteboard thing. i found out about it Wednesday and then Friday i built my IR pen (luckily Mouser the suppler johnny lee links to is right down the street from me)  and did a quick test just to see if it was worth investing in a wiimote for my self.
first i see that amazon has a wiimote that is made by  Dazzle Games and it is only 15 for a the wiimote and nunchuck with free shipping with prime. the next cheapest is 29.99, is it worth it for the the oem?

second, one of my old teacher had a smartborad and think that the smartboard or similar program would be helpful. is there a software that allows you to make separate pages, scroll down to continue writing, ect. because the program that i got to work when i was using a borrowed wiimote was iwiiboard, i was having trouble with getting smoothborad to start i have since been able to find the fix. and neither of them seem to have a program that can save and have pages like i would like. im sure there is other additional software for the pc that will do what i want but i just don't know where to look.

thanks in advance

Hi,

If possible, do purchase an original Wii Remote as the non-genuine Wiimote may not work well with the setup due to the IR camera or connection issues.

You have mentioned that you have issues with starting Smoothboard. What are the issues you are facing?

You may email us directly and we may assist you.

Thank you.

Regards,

Can you describe the issue that you are facing?

You should be able to double click on the Smoothboard desktop icon and the Smoothboard software should be launched.

If you are using the Microsoft Bluetooth Stack, SmoothConnect will appear and you may connect your Wiimotes by pressing the 1 and 2 buttons simultaneously.

The Continue Unregistered Version button will be automatically activated after about 10 seconds. :)
