I've searched around to see if anyone has the same problem and it seems I've got an unusual problem with my wiimote. I've got a Korean wii loaded with US firmware 3.4. It was softmodded when we bought it. The wiimote pointer works perfectly well in games, menus, homebrew, etc, but in games requiring the nunchuk the on-screen pointer will stop working after a few minutes of play and then will usually work again if you unplug the nunchuk and plug it back in. Other than the pointer the controller still works ie. in mario galaxy I can run around and jump. It makes it so I can't play first person shooters, and playing Galaxy and Zelda can get extremely frustrating, but not impossible to play. The problem showed up immediately when we got the Wii home, I tested it with both and I believe it happens with both wiimotes (though I can't confirm since one wiimote has since ceased working except for flashing lights when the sync button is pressed) 2. the second wiimote isn't working, except for if I hit the sync button when I turn on the Wii it will light up the first player light and I can use the + and - buttons to scroll around the Wii menu, but the pointer doesn't show up. Anyhow, thanks a bunch for any help you can offer.
