    So,this thread is nothing special,but I've searched most of sites,and haven't found an answer.
    1.Can I use an extremely cheap bluetooth dongle for connecting a real wii controller (with nunchunk,and external wii mote plus)?
    2.Do I have to get a wireless sensorbar in order to play games like Super Mario Galaxy etc?
    3.Does the ''shake'' function work normally?
    4.In what case will I have a problem installing the wii remote with the motion plus extension ? Can this problem be solved?

    1) Yes
    2) Without any type of sensor bar, you cannot have pointer functions. It is possible to make your own sensor bar with old tv remote IR LEDs , and a battery. Also you can somewhat use candles to simulate a sensor bar.
    3) All functions of a wiimote would work.
    4) Can't help , never tried a motion plus on either dolphin or real consoles.

    As Roamin said basically. It will work, I use a £1 bluetooth sensor from the pound shop. If you use a wii motion plus, it will be picked up on by games that use it. Skyward sword for example, works perfectly.

    If you use some candles in a diamond shape so it's got vertical and horizontal lights, it'll be fine. I use a wireless, rechargable one - you can get them cheaply on Ebay. You might be able to hack the original to run power to it, but I'm not sure there.

    I've heard that trick with the candles, but I though't it'd be dangherous to have candles inside my room etc.And,it sounds unstable too

    Not even some of those little tealights?

    Technically some LED candles could work as well.

    Well,to be honest,I'd prefer a sensor bar since I'll be sure of where I should point
    (P.s: i've read that led candles can work too,but the ones that exist,at least in my country,last at best 4 days(not exactly led then,I assume),and the worst part is that they're only sold at christmas.) (And single Led lights can be kinda messy to setup,I at least,don't have the proper equipment to set them up)

    I mean that it can be the wii's sensor bar , a wireless one , an homemade one, anything. If you use the wii's , it needs to be powered with 5v. Obviously the easiest way for this is to plug it in your wii and power it on. You need a light source that emits Infrared Light, that's why using the IR led from old tv remotes works as well , or that the candles trick work too. Any light source that emits IR from 2 points will work. 2 candles spaced apart , 2 IR leds from old remotes .. Anything
