    Wiimote connection

    Do I need to be rooted for a Wiimote to work with an nes emulator? The connection apps I have tried all show connectivity, and function, but buttons won't map with any emulator.

    What emulator are you running? Go to settings and other settings and find something along the lines of special input and check mark the box.

    I'm not exactly sure if it requires root as I've always been rooted.

    I have tried several different emulators, none to any avail. I have read of other phones doing the same thing, I wish my wife would just let me root her phone. I want to be able to play my roms on a TV with the hdmi out on the D3.

    I have Wiimote on my DX and IIRC it does not need root as it uses a bluetooth connection. Never had any problems mapping buttons.

    Did you check the settings I mentioned?

    And what emulator are you trying this on?

    I like tiger nes. Its what I use on my D2G. And my wiimote connected rooted, and non rooted to it. There are no special input settings in Tiger, I will re-download a different free one and search for that setting on it. I won't pay for an emulator until I know I can get the wiimote to work.

    Snesdroid is a good one that I used. Don't think it's still on the market but you can Google snesdroid apk and it should pull up.

    If you can't find a good download go to 4shared.com and search snesdroid apk and it should pull up.

    Droid Bionic
    #10
    I can ONLY speak for Motorola Droid Bionic, but am guessing other Motorola phones around the same time will experience the same issue where the Wiimote will connect with apps like WiiMote Controller and you can see keypresses, but in emulators keys can't be mapped.

    The last post on this thread (Issue 116 - android-bluez-ime - Wiimote not working Droid Bionic - A Bluetooth IME system for connecting gamepads to your Android - Google Project Hosting) makes it sound like a Blur issue. I've tried other ROMs for the Bionic based on Gingerbread, like Eclipse and Liberty with no luck, works same as stock when trying to connect Wiimotes.

    I DID get the wiimote working though, on an ICS ROM for the Bionic. But I had wanted to use HDMI out to put phone screen on a projector screen so this option will not work for me in the end.

    Anyway, I think you have the same issue where something in Blur prevents proper handling of wiimote connection.

    Thanks,

    Paul
