Real Wii Remote

How do you use a real Wii Remote?

I saw the option to select it as a controller, but it doesn’t seem to do anything. When I connect my Wii Remote to a Dolphinbar, it says that the Dolphinbar is not configured.

Is there a tutorial for using a real Wii Remote with RetroArch somewhere?

It’s important because the majority of Wii games require motion controls, and games like The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, and Wii Sports Resort are impossible to play without a real Wii Remote.

Been a while since I’ve set it up for Wii games, but I think it has to be in mode 4, and then you sync the wiimote using the button on the bar and the red button under the battery door on the wiimote.

Then, in core options, turn Continuous Scanning on. After that whenever you start a game you should be able to just push the 1+2 buttons to get it to connect.

I’ve set it up to play Skyward Sword before though so I know it’s totally possible.

You could always use the dolphin emulator by itself…
