Wii control don't work
I have a softmoded Wii. My original motion controller works fin. Today I got a new controller that I bought on Ebay (not original).
When turning it on the blue lights blinks and nothing happen.
Can it be that NON original controllers do not work with softmoded Wii or can this be broken one?
Yes I did. The lights flashed in about 30 sec and then it stopped.
I even used new charged batteries.
Were you in any homebrew when trying to sync? Kuz it wont. Sync from system menu for best results.
I turned Wii on and after that sync controller. So I must have been in the sys. menu.
But as you are saying every Wii controller should work? Even non original?
going into the system menu will get the controller working but it will not keep the controller paired with the wii. nintendo calls it a "one time mode" so you will have the same problem next time you try to power on or use the wii with that controller.
to pair the wiimote power on the wii by the button on the console then press the red button above the SD card slot (it is under the door below the power button)and then take off the battery cover on the back of the wiimote and press the small button you see.
NOTE: if it is the motion + controller than it may not work with some homebrew apps
Thats not quite accurate.... what you're describing is what happens if you use 1+2 instead of red buttons. What I was getting to here is that wiimote synching is never available in any homebrew apps, only on the system menu or in games.
