EDIT: PiiWee welcome document: http://godlikecontrols.com/download/piiweewelcome.pdf
I’ve got the proof of concept code done and working as a Classic Controller hooked up to a Wii-mote. I’ll layout a (TINY) board for it tonight to get made, and hopefully have a dedicated Wii-mote controller board available to the public within about 3 weeks if all goes well.
Yes, I know the code should be added to the MC Cthulhu, and I will certainly try, but it’s not going to be easy to get the code ported over, and I’m not 100% sure it would fit, but I will try and keep everyone posted of my progress. But since I got this working, and I know a number of folks have asked about adding Wii support to existing off the shelf sticks, this’d be a nice cheap option, and won’t require difficult (Classic Controller) or expensive (Hori Wii Stick, TvC stick) hack jobs.
If anyone has ideas or suggestions for features that it should include, please speak up. Even with all eight play buttons, dpad, plus, minus and home, I still have five pins available that could be any thing anyone could please. Do we still need the whole Start+select=Home setup? (Well, plus+minus=Home I guess) Should the stick control the Dpad or have options for controlling analog sticks? I’m not too familiar with the workings of the Classic Controller or how it works with most Wii games or VC games, so please, if you’re familiar with how the CC works in games, please post up.
