    Hello,
    Well, I have almost no knowledge about wii emulation on pc.
    I know I need dolphin emulator. I know how to get isos/roms.
    However, I heard I could use some kind of bluethoot system to connect wii remote/nunchuck to the pc.
    I would like to know what are those system.
    Do I need specific brand? Also, how do I play with wii remote, I mean, do I need to aim at that bluthoot thing or I will be able to play while aiming to the pc screen?
    Thanks for the answer :)

    Pretty much any bluetooth adaptor will do the job, and are usb (and these days can be extremely small and out of sight too)
    Sensor bar is not essential, but if you want one of those you can either buy a wireless one or an adaptor to plug the official one into.

    Firstly though I'd check to see if the emulator runs well enough on your PC.... Dolphin these days allows you to map not only the wiimote/nunchuk/etc buttons but also gestures to keyboard or controller, and if say you have an Xbox 360 pad attached to your PC it actually does a pretty neat job depending on how you map it.....
    I personally play Dolphin on my PC with either 360 or a DS4 pad with little trouble...

    Yeah that'll do the trick too ;) EDIT: I see it has a 'frequently bought together' item in a bluetooth adaptor too - that's you sorted really!

    Alright, I just received my sensor bar I bough from amazon. Now I need help once again, I can't find any tutorial online on how to synchronize wii remote with usb sensor bar. All what I find talks about bluetooth system :(

    Wii remotes don't sync with sensor bars. Sensor bars are literally just strips of pretty lights. There's nothing to sync to.

    Put batteries in the sensor bar, turn it on and put it near the screen ;)

    Well, it is a usb sensor bar, so I don't need to.
    But what I meant is, do I need to buy something else or I can play with only my Usb sensor bar?

    Yes, you should've bought a bluetooth adaptor with the sensor bar like I told you...:P.
    Easy mistake though, but like has been said the wiimote doesn't 'sync' with the sensor bar, you just need it if you want to point at the screen. ;)

    Ah... English isn't my native language, I didn't understood that I needed a bluetooth adapter with or without the sensor bar.
    Thanks you again ^^'


    EDIT : By the way, the adapter I sent in my previous message, will it work with dolphin?
