    Hey does anyone know if a utility exists that can change the primary wiimote controller from my wii motioned plus controller to my wiimotion less controller because the button positioning on a wii motion plussed controller is awkward for games requiring a horizontal postion - any ideas?

    Just reset the Wii and then only activate the motionless one. It'll then be player 1.

    Of course, I don't have a Wii Motion Plus, so there might be something I don't know that affects this.

    Why not just simply remove the wii motion plus or Sync a your other controller?

    I guess he doesn't want to go through the headache of stripping the condom off the Wiimote. (I don't use mine since I'm not the type that throws my controllers at the TV.)

    WMPlus uses extra energy. It's best to have it off if your not using it.

    It only uses extra power if activated. It can stay connected all the time (as it's designed to), and your batteries will last equally long (unless you're playing a MotionPlus game). If not activated by the game, it's nothing but a passthru. If you find the M+ to be uncomfortable, then sure, remove it, but you're not saving any battery power by doing so.

    Normally I don't like the jacket either, but I do with the MotionPlus. It makes the Wiimote/M+ combo feel like a more solid unit.

    Also, the jacket is very useful if you play Let's Tap, as it works wonders for keeping the Wiimote still on the damned box.

    I'm sure it's because this is where everyone posts.

    Not saying it's the right place but the Hacking forum has over 250,000 replies.
    Where it should probably be: Hardware, Devices and Utilities only has a little over 15,000

    Stop using the ridiculous, unneeded, Wiimote silicon grip jacket (condom) and just unplug the MotionPlus when you don't need it. Other than that, use other controllers. Seriously, use common sense, this is not something you need help from other people for.
