hi. I would like to use the wiimote as an external pad on my oppo a5 2020 to use it with retroarch. unfortunately without success. hi recently discovered a new app that should calculate the bt pin starting from the Mac address. I have 3 wiimote, 2originali and 1 third parties but only one connects but the leds continue to do blip blip and wiimote not assign player 1 (firts led). all wiimote are plus version.
the apk code is open source. who can check the code and probably enhance it? is strange we can't use wiimote on modern Android version.

This app doesn't support Wiimote Plus, which is expected. They do behave differently.

It also seems like lots of people actually got it to work, presumably with the original wiimote. Original wiimote is relatively easy to get second-handed and is also handy when working with older homebrews and playing with your PC, so I recommend you to get one.

Android dropped support for WiiMote long time ago. Some apps provide "emulation" but afaik the Android Kernel doesn't have the required bits included to be able to "natively" pair a WiiMote.

If I'm not wrong, Android 5 was the last version supporting native pairing of WiiMote.
