Use a Wiimote to control your PC input!

Today I got a nice tutorial for you guys, so you can enjoy playing games with the Wiimote.

So lets get started!

You need:

  • Wii remote IMG_20170709_122158.jpg
    made from a One Plus 3
  • PC or laptop
  • GlovePIE (software)

Step 1

Add the bluetooth device.

First thing you need to do is make a connection between your PC and the Wiimote.
In order to do this go to control panel and click on Devices and Printers

In the top-left corner click on add a device.
Then press the 1 & 2 buttons on the Wiimote.
The Wiimote will show up as an input device.
Add the Wiimote (leave the password blank) and your Wiimote is now connected.

Step 2

Software

Download the ZIP file and unzip it.
Launch GlovePIE.exe and go to the GUI tab.

Click on Detect Output to Emulate and press the keyboard or mous button you want to link.
If you done this click on Detect Input and press the button you want to link on you Wiimote.
Click on Apply.

Do this for the buttons you want, you can save the configuration and open it when you want to use it again.
Click Run.

And it works. 🚀

Worth?

I enjoyed this for playing simple games like Tetris.
I haven't tried playing other games with it, and I think it's great for simple games, not for advanced ones.

If you tried this out and played a game with it, let me know!
I was not getting any input lagg, did you?
