hey,

when i open the Wiimote Whiteboard program my pc just restarts.
i tried some to program some code in glovePie to.
it seems that my pc restarts when I try to calculate the yaw of the remote.

Code: [Select]
if Wiimote.dot1vis
  var.yaw = atan((512-Wiimote.dot1x)/600)
end if
debug = var.yaw+', '+Wiimote.pitch+', '+Wiimote.Roll

that's the code i used that makes it crash in glovePie.

spects:
windows sp pro sp2
jabra A320s bluetooth stereo USB adaptor
newest bluesoleil 6

pleas help me to get it wroking. i would realy love to use the program.

thanks

GOT IT TO WORK!!

it seems (on my pc's) that the bleusoliel driver 6.0.223.0 in combination with sp2 crashes when trying to get to te data from the wiimote's 'ir-camera'

I downloaded an older version of the driver (5.0) and i had to get another bt-stick to beacouse it didn't work whit that version but now it works!!!

now lest's start making an ir-pen becouse the tv's remote dousn't worke that well ;D

wie weet

That problem feels like some software interaction.  You might try looking through the system logs (right click "my computer", choose manage, System Tools, Event Viewer_ to see if you can discern the process or reason for the OS hang.  You will hopefully see a process or PID each time you get a reboot. You might also try these drivers

http://www.broadcom.com/products/bluetooth_update.php

I have been using different BT dongles on different machines for years, and the only drivers that will always do the trick are those old school Widcomm.

I would also like to know if those of you experiencing that hang could list the most intrusive programs (anti-virus, anti-spyware, anti-malware, anti-greyware), graphics cards and drivers you are using. In my experience those are the progs that cause the most trouble.  It is also relevant if you are not using any sort of "Anti" software.  Just hoping to see something across the board, so the coders in this forum could account for it in the next release.
