    Hey, I lost my wii remote a little while ago and before I buy a new one, I was wondering if there was an app or program or something that emulates a real wii remote that I can use for my wii so I can get past the menu screen. Google and the Android Market only gave me apps that turn a wiimote into a controller for your phone (which is still pretty neat, but not what I'm looking for). So if anyone knows anything or have any ideas on what I could do (besides buying a new wiimote of course), I'd really appreciate it.
    Just for reference, I have:
    An Android Phone
    Vista Computer
    DSi
    Wii
    Thanks in advance.

    I don't understand the purpose very well. How are you suposed to play games without Wiimote?
    Why would you like to go past the menu screen?
    The Wiimote has it's pointer detection and it's motion detection. What other device or program could replace that?

    Hmm..."wiimote emulator" isn't the correct term. I think he's looking to use a homebrewed wiimote (in a similar way that 2 candles can form a homebrewed sensor bar).


    Though I think this is more of a question for the hardware department, I seriously doubt it exists. While it may sound theoretically simple to have a bluetooth device scan for heat spots, search for two that have the correct distance to one another, and use the distance to those two to determine where you're pointing your emu-wiimote at*...there's quite some mathematics involved if you have to do that from scratch.
    The motion detection...is there an android phone on the market with that stuff enabled? The DSi certainly hasn't, and how you're going to use "a vista PC" as a wiimote is beyond me (I can't help but see a mental image of one holding his mouse, still connected to his pc, up in the air in front of his television, wondering if he should update his mouse drivers).

    So...no. Sorry, but I'd go with the new wiimote. At least you can connect that to your nunchuck, guitar, classic controller or any other stuff without issues.




    *okay...now it's written down like this, it doesn't sound that simple.

    You know you can set the wii mote controls to emulated wii mote and use that. but if you are like me and have a bluetooth device sitting around you can buy a wii mote again . [​IMG]
