    Download: https://github.com/xerpi/viimote/releases

    Enable the plugin:
    1. Add viimote.skprx to taiHEN's config (ux0:/tai/config.txt):
      Code:
      *KERNEL
      ux0:tai/viimote.skprx
      
    2. You need to refresh the config.txt by rebooting or through VitaShell.

    First time using it (aka pairing):
    1. Go to Setting -> Devices -> Bluetooth Devices
    2. Press 1+2 (SYNC won't work) on the Wiimote during 2 seconds
    3. The Wiimote will pair and connect automatically (don't press over it when it appears)

    Using it after pairing it:
    1. You simply need to press any button (instead of pressing 1+2) to connect it to the Vita.

    Supported extensions:
    • Nunchuk
    • Classic Controller
    • Taiko TaTaCon Drum Controller

    Note: If you use Mai, don't put the plugin inside ux0:/plugins because Mai will load all stuff you put in there...

    You'll have to modify the source code and recompile it for now.

    Could you possibly add support for the Wii Taiko Drum so that it could be used with the Vita Taiko games?

    You have to install VITASDK to be able to compile Vita homebrews and plugins: https://vitasdk.org/
    Once you have it installed, you'll have to modify this function: https://github.com/xerpi/viimote/blob/master/main.c#L399 as you want and then compile the plugin.

    It looks like somebody has already done that: https://github.com/wolfarine/viimote/tree/wolfarine-patch-1

    Doesn't seem to work. When connecting my drum extension no inputs are being picked up. Even the buttons on the wiimote itself stop functioning until the drum is disconnected.
    I know the drum itself is not the problem, I use it just fine on my Wii, Wii U, and PC.
