    Wii Shooters, Tell me its not supose to be this way : /

    after seeing all those video's on youtube with people playing wii shooters, while holding a pistol or what ever, I thought hey, That looks like alot of fun, So I went out and bought a wii perfect shot, Load up call of duty and join a multiplayer game.... I see a bad guy, Aim at his head and thats when it hits me, My cursor is pointing WAY down.

    To center the gun I have to be center with the sensor.. Someone please tell me thats not how these wii games are meant to be played? I loved the idea of raising my gun at the AI and shooting right away, Not aiming blindly towards the wii sensor.

    I was hoping it would be like the old duck hunt, Aim at the duck on the tv and shoot.. So is it just something im missing, or is that really how the wii shooter games are meant to be played? : /

    If you have your sensor set right then your cursor should be exactly where you are pointing your gun.

    Do you have your sensor above or below the tv? Is it set to match?

    Some games also have a 'set pointer' type of thing for you to adjust aim.

    I have it on top of the tv.. How do you set it to match? does that mean the pointer can be directed to what its pointing to at the tv its self rather than the sensor? If you say yes im going to be one happy camper

    Go into your wii settings, sensor bar. This will only 'average it out' but it does sound as though your setting is wrong if it is that far out.

    As I said, some games do have a settings also to get your cursor smack on within the game.

    if you are playing on a big tv that will throw it off. the wii has no way of knowing what size your screen and is set to a happy medium which was before 42" and above became so affordable.

    If you have a large TV (42" or above) I would suggest having the sensor bar Below the TV if it is on a stand. The key is to have the Sensor Bar at a reasonable height. I find waist height is about right.

    The Wii Settings ask if the sensor bar is above or below the TV and must be correct. Also, check the Settings on the In-game menu too.

    Thanks, I thought I had it set to above tv, But it was set to below.. Works much better that its set to the right spot.. Now its only off by a small bit, But im guessing a game using the wii motion plus with a gun would help alot.. thanks all =)

    Only if game accepts Wii Motion Plus. If it isn't designed for it, I don't think it will make any difference. Check the In-Game Settings for an adjustment in the sensitivity. You can also adjust the Sensitivity of the Sensor Bar in the Wii Settings, but the In-Game options are specific to that game (if the game has any that is).
