I have been poking around for an answer to this strange occurance. When I play a few select games like Tatsunoko vs. Capcom, Bodukai 2, my 1st wiimote stays synced but isn't usable. I have to sync a second wiimote in order to play as player 2. Only seems to happen with some fighting games. I using Custom IOS38 rev 13b, USB Loader GX (same issue with a disk), and I also have Wii Speak connected. Honestly haven't tried launching it with Gecko, but I don't have the disk anymore. I was able to resolve the issue once when the Wii Speak was disconnected from the USB port, but haven't been able to repeat that. Any ideas?
