Supported Thrid Party Wii Remotes

 
#1

I was trying to do the research on this topic myself but I figured I'd put it to the community instead since you all have experience will all kinds of controllers. Which Wii remotes that you guys own work well with EZ-Builder?

I know that Wii remotes with the Wii Motion Plus built-in do not work natively in windows (without bluetooth stack modification) so those are out.

I've purchased a clone Wii Mote from Deal extreme a long time ago and it worked great, then I purchased one more recently that didn't. The first one (black) was more of an exact replica with the newer one looking much more generic (red) with no Nintendo branding.

What Third party Wii Remote brands work well for you guys? Anyone have experience with the Rock Candy Brand?

Thanks!

i have similar like the red one,but i cant get it connected..

Yeah it's weird that it shows up in windows and you can connect to it as a bluetooth device but it doesn't show up as a valid HID controller unfortunately.

Here are 2 more Wii Remotes that work with EZ-Builder.

Blue one is from "Afterglow" and the White one (with RGB LEDs) is from "Collective Minds":

Even the venerable Sonic Screwdriver Wiimote works as well Grin

For all those Whovians out there!

Some newer wiimotes might be geared for the newer wii versions like wii U or the newer wii generation.

@Technopro Do you know if the Wii U or new generation Wiimotes can connect via Bluetooth natively in windows and show up as a game controller (input device)?

I don't have any to test unfortunately.

Oh, I must get one of those for the Steampunk K9 I am building.

@ftlum should probably order one too.

Damn this hobby is getting expensive..... Smile

No I don't sorry. I got away from Wii when I could. Good ol' Xbox fixed me right up!
