    Hi all,

    This is the release of version 2.2 of a simulator (not an emulator) of the game 1-2-Switch, which was created using Microsoft Small Basic. Small Basic is a lighter version of Visual Basic, therefore very simplistic, and so creating a project like this proves rather challenging. However, I spent the time and managed to do it.

    This is not piracy as no official files are used apart from images and sounds, and all of the code in the project was written by me. However, a moderator may remove this post if they deem it necessary.

    Playable minigames:
    • Telephone
    • Quick Draw
    • Soda Shake
    • Fake Draw
    • Samurai Training
    The simulator is played using Wii Remotes, connected to your PC through GlovePIE. They are not as accurate as Joy-Con, of course, but their motion controls and rumble are enough to make the game playable.

    Download (Google Drive)

    Download (Mega)

    Source code (with changelog)

    For instructions on how to run, a README.txt file is included with the download.

    Requirements:
    • Windows PC
    • Bluetooth adapter
    • Two Wii Remotes (optional. The simulator can be played using the keyboard; however an understanding of either the GlovePIE or project code must be made to figure out the keys which are used. Wiimotes are preferable.)

    Thank you, and enjoy. If you have any questions or suggestions, feel free to use this thread!

    Thanks! And yeah, honestly I find the game quite fun but at its price (especially in Australia), it's just not really worth it.

    Looks interesting, Joycons are compatible with PCs as far as I know, are the motion sensors themselves not working on PCs or did you just find Wiimotes easier to implement/use (or something along those lines, lol)

    Yeah, the main issue is that the motion controls aren't fully compatiable with PC yet. If you read my story in the source code you'll see I actually planned to make it a Wii Homebrew before I realised it's much easier to make it a PC game instead. I'd love to make it work with the Joy-Con as soon as I can, though. It would be awesome.

    Haha, yep. Check out the source if you're interested! I made it quite a while ago but it sure was a challenge!

    Actually this is still technically illegal because it is using audio and images from the game, which also fall within copyright

    I was thinking the same thing...
    Wouldn't it get a DMCA from Nintendo anyway? I mean its basically a 1-2 Switch recreation...

    3045 lines of code! I expected it to almost be a text based game but, this is EXTREMELY impressive. Move on to a larger language and you are SURE to make something great!

    Haha, if only the Wii Remotes had HD Rumble, hey. Maybe when the Joy-Con have a program like GlovePIE.

    @Ep8Script I am going to have to ask you to remove the images and sounds since they are still technically nintendo property.

    Is this going to be submitted for the bounty? If sure that the mods would give it a high score. Great job and good luck.

    I was wondering the exact same thing actually.
    Edit: Judging by the source code, it's basically just somewhere inbetween plain BASIC and Visual Basic. Pretty ugly stuff.
