Mario Party 8 - Wii Remote 2 (Player 2) won't sync/connect.
After searching a bit but not finding anything helpful here I go.
I'm a bit of a new user at this but not to the scene, and not to computers. I have The Homebrew Channel installed (1.0.6; IOS61 v21.29), USB Loader CFG v40, IOS249, NeoGamma R7, WiiFlow (IOS249) 1.1 R25 using Beta 1.1 R42. All setup.
Mario Party 8 loads from USB Flash Drive using any of these. Friends and myself are able to play a parts of it, it seems without a problem with my HDTV Vizio. The problem is, I cannot get my Wii Remote P2 to sync. So no 2 player action is possible. I've pressed buttons 1 & 2 several times after reading that sometimes the sync has problems and multiple tries work. I have tried all the arrows, even A and B. In combination. The batteries are doing fine.
I even copied my Original (Mario Party 8 is from online) Wii Sports using WiiFlow to Install to my USB Flah Drive then loaded the game from USB and the Wii Remote P2 sync'd correctly.
Is there something I'm missing? When I try syncing Wii Remote 2 (P2) the blue lights just flash for a few seconds then quit while it's being aimed at a close distance.
I'm in the States so my Wii is NTSC. MP8 is PAL, but I can see that shouldn't be a problem.
Thank You very much for your help.
