    As of now I'm off from school for summer break, so i'm visiting family for a few days. I brought along my Wii U with some controllers to play on with my cousins only to now find out that I forgot the Wii Motes. There aren't any close places where I can buy Wii Motes or no one nearby who has a some spare Wii Motes AFAIK. That being said, is there any way to launch vWii without the use of a Wii Mote (maybe through the use of some homebrew I'm not aware of)? Or did I dun'goof? ;_;

    Isn't that just to use your gamepad as a sensor bar? I forgot the Wii Motes you see, so in this case I guess there's not much I can do.

    Yeah, you see my dilemma now. I can't do anything without the Wii Mote itself, but maybe there's a workaround for it?

    Yeah, since there's no Priiloader on vWii there's no way to do anything on vWii without a wiimote.

    No, the gamepad is use as sensor bar only if the gamepad is on during vwii

    Holding the b button force it to boot into vwii, though sometimes it requires tv setup for it cause it gets errors like (please make sure the tv input is selected to wii console.) Other than that, no is just fast boot to vwii, nothing more. You can just hold the power button on the gamepad in wii mode to turn the screen off. It won't power down system of course.

    What to Do:
    1. Ensure that the Sensor Bar is connected to the Wii U and placed correctly.
    2. Power on the Wii U console and then press and hold down the B Button on the Wii U GamePad, Wii Remote, or Wii U Pro Controller when you see the Wii U logo splash screen.
