    With the advent of drivers for the wiimote on all 3 major operating systems, what software/homebrew can come out of this?


    my list:
    Uber joystick
    Emulation heaven
    mouse for those who cant use a mouse
    wireless mouse
    new games centered around it

    Inappropriate comment below.


    force feedback has already been implemented, so only a matter of time until someone finds how to control motor intensity, then pulsing it shouldn't be too hard, need I say more?

    There are far better things for that use than a Wiimote. I don't want my Wiimote getting all gooey anyway. [​IMG]

    There wont be new games centered around it. Thats what the Wii console is for. Games that are centered around it will be homebrew.

    @Hooya, wii glove. and @seja, whats better (to cheap people), a $250 wii, or a $30ish wiimote to play games on pc centered around it. Obviously to me a wii which i enjoy, but how long before wii sports clones?

    btw, force feedback is not the same as rumble (which is what I think you meant). Force feedback implies that the device creates a force that opposes the one you are doing.

    I like to shove the wii remote up my ass too. Also, it's a Wii-remote, not "wiimote."

    I'm just saying that there isn't going to be any specific games created by, say, Ubi-Soft for the PC that use a Wii remote. The driver is homebrew, and plus they would probably get sued by Nintendo.

    I doubt they can be sued. There was no reverse engineering involved. Why should the developers be to blame that the wiimote's bluetooth connection responds to seemingly "random" data [​IMG]

    Then again, in this day and age, anything is a reason for a lawsuit.
