Support for some of the more popular arcade sticks would be awesome, since the wii is such a convenient emulation box, but actually getting a hold of one of the official supported fightsticks is a chore.

How does it emulate shaking the wiimote on games like DKC: Returns and New Super Mario Bros. Wii? Would be great if you could map it to a bottom press! Is that how it works or?

Thanks

I'll post here ready what was on my sdcard, to use on the normal Nintendo Wii!!!

Installed:
d2x-v10-beta52
Base: IOS 58
IOS Slot: 253

(Thus both USBs will work for him)

***** Do Not Install on Slot IOS 58!!!!*****

- Works with Usb loader GX and Wiiflow.

- It still doesn't work as it should, in the nintendo wii system menu

- When using on Usb Loader GX or Wiiflow, select IOS 253 only for the game, leave the default Loader IOS at 224, 249, 250 or 251 (preferably between 249 ogr 250 (because if you leave the Loader at 253 it will serve the Fake Mote) in the Loader mention, but when the game loads it will shut down (A bug that will likely be fixed in the future by friend Xerpi)

Tested with Virtual Consoles and Wiiwares even more when the game loads the Fakemote disarms making it impossible to use them yet.

Special thanks to Xerpi and ploggy friends

Ok i tried yesterday and everything works great!, thanks @xerpi for this, it´s amazing.

On the analog axis absolute using DS3 only covers 50 o 60% of the screen, it doesn't go to the edges of the screen.

Yes tested it needs to stay on the sdcard, yes the ds3 needs to be connected by the USB cable, it doesn't work through bluetooth, I tested it with the ds3 and with 5 usb cables 2 original and 3 from other gadgets one was from a sony camera that I keep for have 2 meters and they all worked, the fakemote still has some bugs and the friend @xerpi will spend almost a year without editing new features in the project.

Hello all,
I've been trying to get fakemote working on my normal Wii, but for some reason i only got it as far as getting the controller's light turn on in my system menu (via loading IOS 252 via priiloader) , but pressing buttons or moving the trackpad does nothing.
I also tried getting USB Loader GX set with the Game IOS to 252 (the cIOS slot i installed it on) and i get a black screen on all the games i tried.

I tried installing it with ios57 as a base, ios58 and ios60, with only ios58 giving the results i mentioned above.

Am i installing it wrong? i'm really at a dead end and would love to use a DS4 on my wii.

this is working well but I only manage to make it work as a base IOS 57 with only one port and on the wii menu it's working but when I click on the disc channel and start the game I'm redirected back to the wii menu but of the most part it's working pretty much as intended.

Also is there any ways to use FAKEMOTE on hombrew apps other than the USB loaders?

Fakemote is An IOS module that fakes Wiimotes from the input of USB game controllers.

It currently supports DS3 and DS4 controllers, with the following features:
  • DS3 and DS4 support includes LEDs, rumble, and the accelerometer
  • DS4's touchpad is used to emulate the Wiimote IR Camera pointer (only tested with the sensor bar configured on top of the screen)
  • Both controllers emulate a Wiimote with the Nunchuk extension connected
The download can be found here.
Installation instructions are here.
GitHub page here.

Notes:
You can install it to any (empty) slot, using IOS 57 or 58 as base (it will also probably work with base IOS 59 and other base IOSes). For now, I recommend not installing it to cIOS 249 (keep this slot with plain d2x) but installing it to an empty slot such as 252 for example. Since loaders have the option to change under which IOS slot to run the loader itself and the games, it's easy to switch between slots.

Usage:
If you have a regular Wii (not Wii U), you can install Priiloader and change the IOS slot the System Menu and games run with.
You can also use an USB loader and change the IOS slot to use when running the loader and games.

When will Xbox One controller support be added? also does it support the Wii U's vWii?

Is there something like this where I can emulate the wiimote plus nunchuck and horizontal wiimote through the wii classic controller?

I wish I could try this out but I do not understand a single thing about what any of this means. Is there an idiot-proof guide there somewhere? I just do not understand the inner workings' expressions at all and I fear making some mistake on my vWii. I just want to know what's safe and what's not so I do not mess up anything.

Will it be possible to fake a wiimote with the wii classic controller?

Firts of all, thanks to @xerpi for all his work. This is an incredible new feature for our wii's .

I'v been trying to get it work, but there's no way for me.

Recently, I bought a PS3 Slim with one "Original" Ds3. looks like OG, with sony logo, PS button with OG logo, etc, etc.

But I'm doubting if it is original.

fakemote installed succesfully on

IOS58
SLOT252 and 253
Changing IOS game to 252 or 253.

After that, tried IOS57, and the DS3 it's not even recongnized.

On 58 the lighst of my controller keeps blinking the 4 of them, and pointer appears and wiimote too as a second player.
But the controller does nothing. Taking out battery of wiimote, nothing.

Also changed IOS system menu on priiloader to 252 and 253, pointer is there, wiimote off, but does nothing and DS3 light keeps blinking.

OG DS3 are super hard to find in good conditions. I really hope someday someone coud make work those chinese adapter PSX2USB. I have a 3 OG DS2 in perfect conditions and I personally prefer it over DS3 or DS4.

thanks :)

you could use hidtest to see if PID and VID is the same as the original ds3 controller
Thanks, I'll try

Edit: do you know if pid and vid on og ds3 are stardart? I dont have og ds3 to compare. Just DS2. As I said, og ds3 are hard to find in my area, not have any friends with ps3

According to the driver code, {SONY_VID, 0x0268}, where SONY_VID is 0x054c. Thus, 054c:0268 is VID:PID for DS3.

BTW, what's the driver code for DS4 based on? I'd like to try my hand at adding DualSense support (assuming DS and DS4 are similar). I was looking at the DS4Windows implementation of DS, and it's based heavily on DS4, which gives me hope it's not as difficult as implementing xinput support would be.

btw would be cool if DualSense support was added
