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.

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.

Anyone have a PS3 controller? That's an important one we're still missing I think.

ps3 controller (via USB) you need to install a driver. i've used motionjoy. but it won't pick up using the gamepad test.

Unless there's something i'm doing wrong.OrangeTapioca2012-02-12 17:15:41

I've just installed Chrome 18.0.1025.11 beta-m and ...

Nothing. Not a peep from my Logtech Dual Action.

I popped back over to Firefox Nightly and it was still in perfect working order there.

I disconnected and reconnected the gamepad. Still nothing from the Chrome beta.

Oh well. No result is still an experimental result.
