[QUOTE=Haematite] Wii Remotes actually use bluetooth, so if you have a bluetooth adapter for your pc then you should just be able to add it to your bluetooth devices.
Can't remember if you need more software or not though, I have only done it with an emulator that recognised the wii remote.[/QUOTE]
Getting a Wiimote to work as a controller is a somewhat convoluted process requiring two pieces of software. First is GlovePIE
, which interfaces with the Wiimote and allows you to map Wiimote/Nunchuk/Classic Controller button presses to a PPJoy controller. This leads into the second required piece of software, which is PPJoy
. PPJoy takes virtual controller input and maps it to a virtual controller recognized by Windows.
Overall, it's not terribly difficult, but it can take some finagling to get it working just right - and if you're running on a 64-bit version of Windows, there are additional hoops to jump through with the installation of PPJoy.
