Default Project64 with a Nintendo Wiimote

Apparently the Nintendo Wii uses bluetooth for its wireless devices. A few clever users found a way to use this with Project64 through third-party drivers and software hacks. There is a video up on youtube about this, here's the video below.

The most important thing you'll need to get this working is a bluetooth dongle, you can find these on eBay rather cheap, and obviously a Nintendo Wiimote. I haven't tried this myself, if anyone has we'd be curiuos to here from others!

You can download that game on the wii shop channel. This is so obviously a fake, i dont think anyone would spend enough time programing the wii remote to be motion sesitive with PJ64.

In the very unlikely case this is actully real, well done but otherwise your a big fake!

It is actually real. I used it myself. It isn't real easy to set up, but it really does work!

Just try it out yourself! Use GlovePIE (http://carl.kenner.googlepages.com/glovepie_download), download some scripts and enjoy!

You can also make scripts yourself. For example:
Wiimote.A = Key.X
makes GlovePIE press X when you press the A Button.

I played Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time with it, but also some NES-games and PC games like House of the Dead 3 and Resident Evil 4. House of the Dead 3 is really cool with the Wiimote! You can reload by shaking the nunchuk!

phew, jabo hasn't been made to look a f00l, yo
(is that how you talk to your peeps jabo? )

so PJ64 works ok with this, don't need any custom support? if we can include a controller profile or something to help wiimote users that'd be nice eh..

I had a hunch it was legit, I did do a bit of research over the last few weeks, thought it would make a cool blog either way.

@Smiff where'd you pick up the ghetto slang playa? haha.

Yeah this one is real... This is one of the included scripts

Not the best one though... it doesn't have proper analogue sensitivity

Yeah I had this setup and working from scratch myself months ago. The script package I wrote includes a glovepie script and a controller profile for NRage's input plugin. You also need PPJoy (a program that allows the wiimote to emulate joystick input) in order to get true analog control from the nunchuck. I've used it for Ocarina of Time, Master Quest and Majora's Mask.
