    I really like the Preloader hack the replaces the Health Warning with the "backmenu", but what I don't like is it seems to skip the initialization of the Wiimote, so when the channels list pops up, I need to hit a button every time to turn the Wiimote on before the pointer works. It's a minor inconvenience but I was wondering today, is it possible to make a preloader hack that turns on the Wiimote on startup?

    If such a hack exists already, that would be sweet, but I haven't seen it around. Anyone know if it's possible?

    doesn't exist, but iw would be nice, also to have a app that can activate the wii motes, so if you lost one, it could just make some noise [​IMG]

    Not possible. The Wiimote isn't turned on so it can't respond to any command from the Wii.

    The Wiimotes are in sleep mode till you press a button, to preserve battery life.
    They cannot receive any commands from the wii if they are in sleep mode.

    That's a shame. Oh well, we'll just have to be less lazy.

    It doesn't skip it. The health screen IS the initialization, as you need to press A so the WiiMote will connect. ;)

    lol. only reason i would want this is because sometimes I'll move the classic controller's joystick just a second too early, and the directions will be messed up (i use it to move the pointer on the wii menu 90% of the time)
