    Wii controllers - switching "player" quickly.

    I have several controllers - many more than I need actually, but if I can figure this out, it will allow me to keep some of them in the various guns, steering wheels, guitars, etc, and not have to play musical remotes from time to time.


    I am still pretty much a noob, but the way I see it now, is that when you power up the wii and remotes, it is a 1st come 1st serve for player 1, 2, etc.

    Say I have two remotes. One just in a jacket and the other in a gun/rifle with the nunchuck. And the regular remote is player one for example. But if I switch over to Big Game Hunter or something, I prefer the controller in the gun to be player 1.

    How can I make that switch quickly? - without removing batteries.

    It seems to me that I have to let the remotes power off, and then re-establish the connection in the preferred order.


    It seems that that would be a common request, but it is not addressed in the manual.

    Some sort of channel or app could work, but I would prefer to stay in WiiFlow if possible.

    Is it possible?
    Thanks

    Yea, that's all the book says too.

    I wonder if I can fool it by taking a remote that is already syncronized in standard mode and doing a one time sync.

    Hmmm...well you can wonder all you want, but it would do you well to actually read the post.

    ONE TIME MODE - This mode allows you to temporarily use your remote on a Wii console other than your own, or to use a friend's remote on your console. It can also be used to change the order of the Wii Remotes, without the need to turn off the Wii console.

    ADD, my bad. I should have taken to time to see that the link you referenced was just slightly different than the printed manual that I have.



    I do appreciate the help.

    I did find that actually turning off the console is a workable option for me also. But I will play around with both options.
