Thread: Problem with synch in controllers and USB loader

    Problem with synch in controllers and USB loader

    So Iv got the kids WII to boot directly to usb loader. The problem is that controller 1 has been used on another wii so when I enter usb loader I have no way to get back to the wii menu.
    Iv tried to sync them by the red buttons but one controller has position 2 and the other refuses to connect.
    Aby ideas what I can do, or what I am doing wrong? I was thinking I needed to get into the wii menu somehow, where several controllers where supported atleast.

    There are 2 different ways to sync a remote, Standard and one time. the procedure is in the spoiler below. If that doesnt work from where you are at you can access priiloader to access the main menu and sync there.

    [spoiler=Sync]Synchronizing the Wii Remote with the Wii Console

    Synchronizing the Wii Remote to a Wii console allows the Wii Remote to communicate with the console. The Wii Remote included with your system should already be synchronized to your console. However, all additional Wii Remotes you use with your system also need to be synced in order to function properly..
    There are two different modes of synchronizing (syncing):
    • STANDARD MODE - The Standard Mode procedure is used when adding additional Wii Remotes to your system or if you want to re-synchronize your original Wii Remote. Once synchronized, the Wii Remote will stay synced to the console unless you overwrite the settings by syncing the remote to a different console. For instructions on Standard Mode syncing, please click here.
    • 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. One Time Mode does not delete the Standard Mode setting stored in the Wii Remote. In this mode, the Wii Remote will only communicate with the Wii console while the power is on. When the power is turned off, the Wii Remote will lose its sync with the Wii Console. For instructions on One Time Mode setup, please click here.
    Note: Only a Wii Remote in Standard Mode can turn the Wii console power ON or OFF.
    1. Standard Mode Synchronization
      Note: Make sure you have placed batteries in the Wii Remote (how to).
    2. Press the Power button on the Wii console to turn it on.
    3. Open the SD Card Slot cover on the front of the Wii console. Remove the battery cover on the back of the Wii Remote you wish to sync up.
    4. Press and release the SYNC button just below the batteries on the Wii Remote; the Player LED will blink. Quickly press and release the SYNC button on the inside of the SD Card compartment on the console.
    5. When the Player LED blinking stops, the syncing is complete. The LED that is illuminated indicates the player number (1 through 4).
      This procedure must be followed for each additional Wii Remote added to your system.
      Go to the Next Step (Playing Game Discs) >


    1. One Time Mode Synchronization

      Note: This mode temporarily removes Standard Mode synchronization setup for all Wii Remotes until the power of the Wii console is turned off. When the power is turned back on again, the Standard Mode settings will return.
    2. Press the HOME Button on a Wii Remote that is synchronized with the Wii console.
    3. Select the Wii Remote Settings option from the Home Button menu.
    4. Select the Reconnect Option.
    5. Press the 1 and 2 Buttons at the same time on the Wii Remote that you want to synchronize with the console. If you are syncing multiple Wii Remotes, press the 1 and 2 Buttons on each Wii Remote immediately (without a significant pause) in the order you want them synced. The order in which you synchronize Wii Remotes determines the player order (1 through 4) for multiplayer games. The Player LED will blink during the syncing process. When the blinking stops, the connection is complete.

    [SPOILER= Did I come off like a jerk?? Read more here]Shift_Lock On Forum Issues - Vol. 1

    Disclaimer:
    First I would like to state that this is one persons point of view. It does not reflect this site (wiihacks.com) or any other staff/mod/or admin here. It is solely mine. Now even though a few may have similar points of view this should be taken as one person’s opinion. Also. This DOES NOT reflect all users and noobs here.. Just a select few personality types that pop in time to time. Let’s get started!

    [SPOILER="Outlook On Forum Rules "]Now I realize many of you did not even read the rules and just agreed to them.. Kind of like signing a legal contract without reading the clause that states you just sold your life away… It happens... When it does, YOU are still responsible and held liable for your actions. No matter how much you think its BS... It’s still on you. I for one am among those who did just that when I signed up here... (Shame on me I know) I to did not read them immediately (however I did speed through it to get a general idea)... I was quickly referred to them a few times do to not being thorough enough with “speed reading”...

    [SPOILER="Why we have rules on this site"]The rules here at wiihacks are here for a few key reasons. I’m only going to hit a few.

    Conduct - We know it’s the net, and there are a lot of internet gangsters/bully’s/and plain jack ass’s... We don’t like that here. The ways users conduct themselves reflect the site... We want user to enjoy coming here but respect in general is needed. Flaming and such results in infractions/bans so don’t do it.

    Piracy – This is a big one here, and no one seems to understand... First of all IT IS AGAINST THE RULES OF THE SITE! Which every last one of you members had to agree to follow prior to being a member here. Copyright laws vary from place to place so they are different for others. But we have to follow our copy rights here to protect our site. We DO NOT support piracy and will not assist in it. We don’t want to lose our wonderful site that you as a user come to, to find help. Big brother (the government) and big “N” (Nintendo) may be watching along with a vast amount of other private sectors looking to stop the pirating of copy righted material. Shutting down sites that support it are somewhere at the top of the list to reduce this.

    Personally, I don’t care what you do... I don’t care what your online habits are or how much porn/software/media you download every day. It’s your computer and your life. YOU are responsible for anything that may occur from that. Users who lack a way with words to express themselves in what they are trying to do may get wrongly accused of being a pirate and these things occur: warnings/infractions/bans/threads closed/YouTube videos of dancing pirates/ and many many possible pictures pointing you out.

    We as staff here are obligated to abide by and enforce forum rules. Whether we believe their valid or not. They are in place to protect the site and members of our community. I won’t allow a poor decision result in losing this site.

    Cheating – Play Fair... I support it... Nothing I hate more than losing to a cheater... If I lose I want it to be because the other person was actually better. Cheating takes the fun out of the game... Why make it easier? Do you suck that bad at it? Don’t like the challenge? GET A DIFFERENT GAME! We don’t support cheats here. Users will not be given help on how to become invincible or walk through walls... you want god mode? Unlimited ammo? Go Google it somewhere else. Don’t ask about it here.[/SPOILER]

    There are a lot of users/members that say “this is wiihacks wtf?” or "that’s the point in hacking a Wii”... No it is not….. We assist users in backing up their legally purchased games so they don’t get ruined in the future (we know how kids are)... Before backups I had bought 3 Mario karts! Ridiculous… Anyways, it also allows us to fully enjoy the console and the convenience that some mods add to the system. We make it custom and set it up the way we like it. Kind of like your pc. A lot of users buy the Wii just so they can do that! I will ban anyone who tries to argue that point... Dont be ignorant... [/SPOILER]

    [SPOILER= “So you Think You’re a Hacker”]Warning: Spoiler below is a rant. [SPOILER= "Shift_Lock's Rant about the tough guys"]Really guy? We are “Modder’s” at best... most users aren’t even that. A hacker would shut down this site with a single code line… Not sit here claiming he’s one arguing about rules and why he needed help... I’m not saying we don’t have members that are real “hackers” but face it... You aren’t one of them... Coders and developers are fantastic people that make all this possible. And some of those guys truly are considered hackers at some level. Now, could they hack the pentagon? Probably not, but maybe. Who knows... lol

    The point of this is for those of you that come on here thinkin you’re hot [nice word]... If you were a hacker you wouldn’t need our help and wouldn’t need to hide behind a proxy or redirect to post your nonsense… Get over yourself and just follow our guides. If you can’t “hack” a Wii, what can you do? Can you hit the logout button? Try It! How about facing your fail and going back to the guides to read some more… Leave the “hacking” to the REAL hackers out there. /end rant[/SPOILER][/SPOILER]

    [SPOILER= “Need Help?”] That’s why you’re here right? To get help Modding your Wii. Some users can just navigate the site and never need to post a thing because they can search, read and are on some level tech savvy. Other users need assistance. That’s why we are here... To support and assist those who need the help to mod or to help find solutions to their problems. We like to help… but... We don’t always like to spoon feed arrogant people who demand help or can’t use the search function... If our search is too hard to use there is Google, and if you can’t use Google then you SHOULD NOT mod your Wii...

    We see the same issues every day, same posts, same questions, same answers…. SEARCH FIRST!!! Read a little… Geez people! Too lazy to search for a solution, but can type a wall of text that takes 15 mins to read? C’mon man… step up your game... My spoon hand is getting tired, gonna have to just start [nice word] slapping people with it…

    Don’t be lazy... Help us, help you... If you’re really stuck then we take no issue helping as long as it’s within the lines of the rules... The “grey” area is kind of tough... The staff is here on OUR own time and do not get ANYTHING for being here helping you... We are not paid and don’t see any part of the donations... The donations go strictly to site development. Can you fathom how much it costs to run a site of this level and host the files that we do? Everything costs money... Just not the staff here so remember that the next time you are impatient or lazy... We aren’t getting paid... We are helping because we want to... So keep your cool and dont lose your head... Don’t give us reasons to NOT help you. If you do, well... Then we won’t...[/SPOILER]

    [SPOILER= "Mutli Threads, Double Posts and bumping"]Ok.. So It might not bother you but it bugs the crap outta me! It clutters the forum and makes you come off as impatient and ungrateful.

    Mutli threads - Do you really need more then one?? Mods and staff see EVERY POST MADE! You only need one thread for your issue.. Dont create more then that..

    Double posts - You have an "EDIT" button... it will be right under your post to the right.. it will say "EDIT".. say it with me now.. "Eh-d-it" ...... Use IT!!!

    Bumping - If no one has got to you yet there IS a slim chance it was missed.. probably not.. As we answer what we know. so if we dont know, We will leave it for someone else or atleast contact another Staff member for assistance. So WAIT and be PATIENT!You can bumpAFTER 24hrs! and that it!!! I will infract/ban/scold/kick your dog/delete any users who abuse this after warnings....[/SPOILER]
    More to come (without a doubt) so stay tuned for the next edition! Peace I’m out![/SPOILER]

    I was wondering if someone could help me with this problem that I have. My Wii remotes usually work fine. We load games with WiiFlow and usually, everything goes well.

    Earlier tonight, I installed Donkey Kong Country Returns using Wii Backup Manager, and for the life of me, I cannot seem to be able to sync more than one remote. Any remote can be player 1, but then nobody else can reconnect. The other remotes will connect (as player 2 or 3) for about 1 second and they will disconnect. This only happens with Donkey Kong Country Returns.

    I performed a Standard Mode Synchronization and I still have the same problem.

    Any suggestions would be *greatly* appreciated. Thanks!

    pipeandwire had a similar issue with his remote not syncing in this thread
    http://www.wiihacks.com/lounge/94370...t-syncing.html
    In it he describes using a Game Cube controller to get to the "Priiloader" and then being able to sync once he had selected "boot to system menu".
    To get to the Priiloader you have to press both the power button and the reset button at the same time until the Priiloader window shows (1-2 seconds).

    Let me take this one step further for those of us that might have a say, a black Wii without the Game Cube controller ports at the top. What would be another option?

    What if instead of pressing both the reset and the power buttons down at the same time to get to the priiloader screen, there was a different trigger to get the Wii to the system menu directly?

    Or, could getting to the main menu be worked into the priiloader screen as the first option at the top and have it default to the Wii Menu if there is no response within say, 5 minutes so that the remotes can be synched once again? I doubt if anybody would mind being booted off the Priiloader menu if it remains idle for more than 5 minutes. I think even two minutes would be reasonable.

    If there are other ways of getting back to the main menu when the remotes are not syncing by all means let us know.

    Guys, I think this might be the solution to your problems.

    I was playing a game the other day (punch-out) and it didn't sync my second remote. I tried everything (literally) and was about to give up. I then went into multiplayer mode and tried 1 last time and it worked!

    Some games do not allow a second remote to be synced until a specific mode (multiplayer) is selected.

    Try doing that and let me know how it goes.

    This scenario is not the same as you will always be able to use the one remote to control where you want to go. What about if neither of your remotes are syncing, for whatever reason. In that case you are left without a way to control any menus that you might have available. Thanks for the suggestion anyways.

    I see - I was mainly referring to MrFido's problem.

    If you read his post, you'll see what I mean
