I am looking to reprogram a Wiimote. I realized I need the firmware to do so. Essentially I want to be able to press the C button on the nunchuk and have it register as though I pressed the A button in the game, and be able to press the Z button and have it register as though I hit the B button. Any help would be great and considering the magnitude of projects might be a *relatively* easy task to accomplish.
Wow. Simple morbid curiosity forces me to ask... Why?
i second that emotion lol

I treat a lot of athletes including snowboarders/skateboarders and there main complaint with gaming systems is the limits either put in by the game or the equipment provided, mostly the equipment's fragility. Whether its Tony Hawk's Thride or the Wii balance board you can't really be too aggressive with them and they restrict a lot of movement for players who would like a more physical challenge.
So I'm having a wood crafter make a replica of the contoured Thride board. Its got a nice feel and has obviously been tested for the market extensively.
My goal is to mount an existing motion game controller directly to the board. This will be easily accomplished with gripper clips. The end result will be dozens of already existing ski/sno/wake/skateboarding games (currently available in the Wii format) will now be capable of being played in a much more fun, aggressive(jumping/hopping/turning/bending) & functional way than the could ever before.
When you consider my perspective I think you see where I'm going with this. I'm trying to fuse existing gaming technology via my knowledge of sports rehabilitation-biomechanics with balance boards and make the end result an adequate gaming and a true *challenging* exercise experience for the user. Its my belief that both gamers & boarders are looking for this and the THRide comes up just a little short.
I've trialed standard balance boards at my office with the motion sensor controller and the result, though rudimentary, had applications are limitless at least in a rehabilitation setting. A customized product like this board certainly has a select audience but in *virtual rehabilitation* the possibilities will be very rewarding for my patients and improve their experience while recoving and enhancing their physical capabilities.
However in many of the games the A & B buttons remain functional when you are using the remote instead of the Wii Balance board. Though they aren't *absolutely* necessary there in lies my motivation to enable the nunchuk to perform the A/B button functions via the C/Z buttons.
If this can be accomplished than a player will have the full challenge of a dynamic balance board and the full functionality of the game they are playing.
With that said can anyone here help me get this done. Thanks!
Picture a Wiimote afixed to a board just like this...
