    Try opening one of your wiimotes and you will see the rumbler

    Remove it or put a switch there.
    good luck

    There is no other way other than:

    1. Hope the program has source code and download it
    2. Remove the rumble code without messing up anything else.
    3. Recompile
    4. ???
    5. PROFIT!

    And that is not as easy as it looks.

    No, there is no easy way, however, you can find a full disassembly video here.
    Or you could google "wiimote disassembly"
    If you don't dare to do it, find someone that does, Safety first. removing the rumble component is the only safe solution.

    I'd be more concerned about the light patterns of the games on the tv screen triggering her epilepsy than the vibrations in the wii remote, personally.

    You can also navigate the channels in the homebrew channel using the up down left right pad on the wii remote and pressing + and - to go between screens and the A button on what's highlighted to input your choices, just don't point the wii remote at the screen and you won't get any vibrations, just point it upright.

    To everyone suggesting disassembling the wii remote - that voids his warranty on the controller and requires a triwing screwdriver which most people don't have lying around.

    how does rumbling cause epilepsy? so how does your girlfriend sit in a car without going into seizures? how does she even walk?

    not to be insensitive but are you sure the rumbling is the cause?

    Some vibrations , esp how strong the wii mote is at sometimes can cause fits, not all vibrations though

    ill see if its just certain games that vibrate

    ive notice it a lot on jewel quest so it might be just the game more so compared to the rest
