    Not sure this belongs here, i did a quick search and couldnt find anything. basically i bought this the other day

    http://www.mayflash.com/products/nintendowiigc/w010.html

    its a wii sensor bar with built in bluetooth made specifically for the dolphin emulator. ive managed to connect my wii mote just fine, the PC even recognises it as a mouse and i can do normal PC tasks using my wiimote, but as soon as i load a game via the emulator the wiimote disconnects. exit the emulator and its back to working as a "mouse" again. not sure what im doing wrong. ive tried a couple of versions of dolphin too and it does the same thing. any ideas?

    also while i have this topic i tried putting it near my wii on the TV using a wiimote synced with the wii console, and it didnt pick anything up. i thought all it needed was a light source, ive seen people use their phones as a sensor bar. shouldnt it have still picked it up as long as its on?

    You have to set the dolphin bar to mode 4 by using one of the buttons on top of the bar itself. That will put it in dolphin mode so that dolphin can use it.

    I've never been able to get it to work with my wii either. Don't know why, but it just never picked it up.
