2 player mode
I have recently had my Wii chipped and have been playing games I downloaded. Of the 3 games I have played so far (Pangya Golf, Sonic and the secret rings, Mario Party 8) I have been unable to add a second player. None of those games seems to have a dedicated "More" option like there is in Wii Sports. I have tried synching the second remote at various screens, but never had any success. If I go back to Wii sports and use the "More" option, the second remote synchs without any problem.
Does anyone have any idea what the problem may be?
i have no idea about pangya golf i dont have it, in sonic i don't think u can play multiplayer but in Mario PArty 8 jus connect the second remote by pressing any button and then play a multiplayer round/minigame. it shoulden't be to hard
i am sure that fifa 08 has the 2 player mode
After reading around, I think I may have never "permanently" synched my second Wiimote to the console. I never even realised I needed to. I think I have only ever done the "Temp Synching" method. So for example every time I play Wii sports, I have to add the second wiimote. Does everyone else have their second Wiimote permanently sysnched to their machine? By that I mean, do you not need to synch it every time you play a 2 player game?
edited to add: the reason I am asking and not just "trying" it is because i work away from home and wont be able to check my theory out until Saturday

you just need to permanently sync your remote by pressing the remote and console sync buttons in the same time.
2 Player mode - the solution
Hi guys just thought i would post the solution here should anyone else encounter this problem.
The solution was as a few peopel had said, I needed to permanently synch my second remote to the Wii.... HOWEVER..... the reason this had not worked in the past I found out by digging around the internet, is that, if you temporarily synch a remote to your Wii, using the 1 and 2 buttons pressed at the same time, IT IS MOT POSSIBLE TO PERMANENTLY SYNCH A REMOTE UNTIL THE WII IS DISCONECTED FROM THE POWER SUPPLY.
And this is what had happened to me, I bought me second controller months ago and had unknowingly only temp synched it (via the Wii sports "more" option) and once i had done that, pressing the red button would not permanently synch it until i physically unplugged the Wii from the mains.
Thanks for help
