Hey all,
the B Button of my bro's Wiimote just broke. Well, that sucks, especially as most of the games have still one or more button unmapped.
So I wanted to ask if it is possible to remap the Wiimote's B to 1 or sth?
Maybe with a homebrew app?
Would be cool, as the B button is the only thing that doesn't work and buying a new Wiimote wouldn't be worth that.
kind regards

PS: I found a remapping program for Linux or some shit, but not for the Wii

I doubt you could simply use software to change it. It would have to be a hardware modification and if you are going to go down that route, a new wiimote would probably be easier.

Do you know why it broke?
It would be pretty simple to add a new button to replace "B" with simple soldering and a button.

Ok not as easy as it looks. Four screws are obvious, but there are at least 2 more for a full open.

there are only for screws. towards the tip of the wiimote there are two clips you need to push in from the sides along the seam.

Actually I wouldn't be surprised if someone was able to create a cheat code to meet your request, but you need to speak to some hackers lol. I'm pretty sure a similar question has been asked before.

I know for Brawl the button mapping has been modified.

And ok, so the last two screws are under the clips? Cool, so now I can open my wiimote cool.
