If its the NVIDIA chipset… then why does it work on the mac side, but not the PC side? Its just a matter of a driver being written/modified, im sure. The controller CLEARLY works on the chipset, apple seems to have no problems supporting it. Leave it to win-blowz to fuck up a free lunch.
smh, i REALLY dont want to have to buy buttons/sanwa stick for my wii fightstick (tvc) just so i can play sf4 via bootcamp on my lunch breaks at work (conference room, ftw!).
A good thing to know is that the Wii FightStick (SE TvC) DOES work on windoze.
Just do this (i might be forgetting a few steps, like the initial pair of the wiimote with the pc):
- get your wiimote handy
- restart your machine into windows
- download glovePIE (install that shizz)
- once glovepie is installed reboot again
- as soon as windows boots up (and you log in) IMMEDIATELY/QUICKLY start GlovePIE (open Fighting Games.PIE) and press and hold the 1,2 buttons on the wiimote… (what sucks is that the drivers will only SUCCESSFULLY install if you do it, like, right away when windows boots up) this will pair your wiimote and install the drivers.
(drivers on windows suck ass – if its being a bitch, start pressing buttons on your wii fightstick when you click “detect inputs” – i found that this usually kicks windoze in the ass and makes it complete successfully – dont hit apply when it finally recognizes if you’re using my PIE).
- You’re gonna need a basemap for the key config… i’ve saved you time and made one http://idzr.org/uwzv (home button is start, so is start [for some reason PC sf4 has two different types of “pressing start”])
Its complicated the first time, but after that its really VERY simple. It becomes a matter of restarting, opening glovepie/the PIE file holding 1/2 on wiimote then clicking detect inputs while mashing a button… then it works and you open sf4. Takes about 1 minute once you get used to it.
Now, someone write an extension to GlovePIE that will work with the PC Wired Stick 8838
