    Hi. I have an afterdark wii mote, with moti9on plus built in. It seems when I play games that utilize the motion plus tech (red steel 2, skyward sword) the wii u loses connection to the wii mote. I have no idea what the problem is. The remote is basically new, i have had it for a while but its received very little use. Short of buying a new control, is there any thing I can try. Ive unplugged the wii u and let the power drain, ive resynched the control, ive switched out the batteries...

    Is original the Wiimote +?

    It is the way motion plus is implemented. My Nyko WAND+ does this as it also has motion plus built-in.

    the only fix so far is to use a genuine Wii Remote (built-in motion plus) or use the adapter.

    I got it. i think you need a IOS.
    I dont know what "IOS" exactly
    But you can use MMM (MultiModManager or Wiimod?) to install IOS (that ios is needed by the controller, and games like Wii Party, or Zelda Skyward Word)

    This is incorrect, you do not need any IOSs. If you install a Wii IOS on Wii U by accident, you will mess up your Wii U.
