    yeah but if he's manageing to browse to his IP on the wiiu it would suggest the apache server is running ok , mine wouldnt run initially as skype was hogging 443 so i tweaked that.

    Ah, yeah...I had to do that too. Thanks for the reminder. It wasn't directed at anybody specific. Just threw a plop of info for anyone that stumbles across this thread.

    Yes, apache works just fine... The only thing that doesn't work is that my laptop doesn't "detect" (doesn't do anything) on the keys that I've set up. :(

    Again, there is nothing to edit on my pc.html

    It's just localhost, why would I have to change that again to the IP number?
    Then again, I did change it... and the outcome is still the same. I can see the numbers when pushing the buttons on my gamepad, but nothing happens on my laptop (where the server itself is running)

    step 2 from the OP :

    2) Open index.html in your favorite editor and change the IP address pointing to now.js to your PC's local IP address (ie.http://192.168.2.1:8080/nowjs/now.js). The port (although you can change it if you please, within server.js) will remain 8080, and the path to now.js will remain constant as well.

    basically set the IP in the pc.html file to your PCs local IP .
    Then browse to your server address/<folder you stored the application> on the WiiU

    Both Dolphin and most Steam games require DirectInput be activated.

    I should really read more carefully...
    (seriously, why did I only check "pc.html"?)

    Thanks for pointing this out, It's working now!

    I was having this problem when I first tried to run the server. Sadly, the solution was so simple I never even considered it. Spent about four hours poking around and thinking I made some tiny mistake somewhere..

    I did not have Java installed on my Laptop. Just upgraded to Windows 8. Installing Java fixed the problem.

    @Seth...
    I have the latest java installed still no luck... I'll try this again later after a few more updates... My 360 controller will suffice for now for emulated keys/mouse... Just was looking forward to the wireless aspect of this.

    So... what about delay? Since it runs through the web browser (and therefore through the main console) it should certainly have a noticable delay, right?

    None that I, or any of the many testers, have noticed.

    That is hard to imagine for me. :/
    Basically it's streaming the input like this:
    Wii U Gamepad > Wii U Console > Router > Internet > PC
    I'd guess that at least when playing games that require precise timing you'd notice something.

    Are there currently any plans for a Linux version of this program to be created?
