Q Do I need the Wii Console ?
A: No. You need the Wii Remote (a.k.a. Wiimote) and the Macintosh computer with Bluetooth. You also need the Sensor Bar (power-supplied by yourself) if you use IR-sensor. You can use two IR-transmitters or two candles instead of the Sensor Bar .
Q: Can I use two Wiimotes ?
A: You can use multiple Wiimotes in 1.0B4 and later. I could connect five Wiimotes to one computer at a time. I have used eighteen Wiimotes with four computers.
Q: Does it support Nunchuk and Classic Controller ?
A: Nunchuk is supported in 1.0B5. Classic Controller is supported in 1.0B6.
Q: The object is not created (dimmed).
A: Please note that you have to run it under the latest Mac OS X (10.4.8 and later) and Max (4.6.2 and later). The Bluetooth framework version should be 1.6.3 and later.
Q: I cannot connect the object to my Wiimote.
A: You have to setup Wii Remote for use with your computer using [RVL Enabler] or [Bluetooth Setup Assistant] for the first time.
Q: Does it run on Intel-Mac and PowerPC-Mac ?
A: Yes. It is a universal binary Mach-O object. I checked it with my MacBook Pro and PowerBook G4, both with internal Bluetooth device. I also checked it with my PowerMac G5(2.5GHz/Quad) and D-Link DBT-120 Bluetooth-USB Adapter.
Q: Is it buggy on PowerBook G4 ?
A: Sure. It is unstable and some functions does not work fine on PowerBook G4. In my experience, I had a good result if I do the following steps every time I use it on PowerBook G4. (You would set up only once on Intel-Mac.)
1: Delete “Nintendo RVL-CNT-01” on “Device” tab in “Bluetooth” System Preference.
2: Do the setup for Wii Remote.
3: Open “aka.wiiremote.help” and connect it.
Q: Can I use the Wiimote that is sold outside Japan ?
A: Yes. I believe the Wiimotes are same in the world.
Q: What is the Sync button that is mentioned in the help patch ?
A: A small red button inside the Wiimote battery box. You can also push 1 and 2 buttons simultaneously to start the synchronization.
Q: The sound of vibration is a little unusual.
A: It was fixed in 1.0B3, I believe.
Q: Do you have the object for Windows and CFM ?
A: No. But I published my source code. So I hope someone would port it to them.
Q: Can I modify your source code and publish another version of the object ?
A: Yes. You can modify and publish it under the BSD license described in COPYRIGHT.txt in the distribution.
Q: What is the difference of DarwiinRemote and aka.wiiremote in source codes ?
A: I made it referring to the source code of WiiRemote Framework 0.4. But they are not same because of the difference of APIs and programming languages.
Q: What is the difference of DarwiinRemote and aka.wiiremote actually ?
A: DarwiinRemote is an application software and aka.wiiremote is a Max object apparently. aka.wiiremote provides raw informations from Wiimote and has no practical function. Thus you would make your own patch by yourself.
