Sorry, my mistake. The settings were at whatever the defaults are, so v-sync was on and it was not possible to reach ridiculous framerates (which would make the limit 60 instead of 50...).

Set the framerate mode to unlimited and enable FPS in caption for a quick way to see how things impact the framerate.

Nintendo could say: the wii-mote and its technology (as a whole) is ours and ours only to use!

I don't think it's a problem as long as it doesn't claim to be officially related to Nintendo. For example, Quest3D, a commercial application development system comes with a Wiimote plugin.

If you stole Nintendo's code that runs the Wiimote and tried to pass it off as your own, then yes you could get into trouble. Otherwise, if you own a Wiimote you can use it how you see fit.

I mean, there are XBOX 360 controller drivers for Linux... :? . They have no legal recourse to tell you how to use your stuff, they're only concerned with piracy of their intellectual property.

I don't think they can do anything about it provided the implementation of the Wiimote wasn't hacked or using their code, but fairly reverse engineered. Nothing to worry about in any case, they'd look foolish trying to stop it.

If Nintendo did, for some strange reason, decide to pick on the plugin then it would get your name out there at least and they would be seen as the bad guys and Scirra would get some publicity!

They have no right to unless code was stolen which i doubt it was. Like someone said Linux has 360 controller drivers, it's all about fair use guys. Besides if things like this cause more people to buy the remotes, nintendo wins.
