    hi,

    Just got the homebrew channel up and running.

    However when I launch anything from it such as minesweeeper or an emulator my wiimotes lose connectivity and will not connect again. I have to reboot the wii for anything to happen.

    Anyone else experience this or know what is going on?

    Thanks in advance.

    EDIT: Grr at typo in title!

    Not all homebrew supports wii remotes. You have to use a gamecube controller.

    ah thanks for that.

    Is there any that runs with just the wii remote? I though the Snes9x emulator had wiimote support but it was one of the ones that didnt work for me [​IMG]

    You need to hold 1 & 2 at the prompt. You may have an older version too. Make sure to get the newest version.

    I beleive this is what works with wii remotes, but only the newest version, like some came out just a few days ago.

    Genesis plus.
    Snes9x.
    Tetris.
    Snake.
    Duck Hunt.
    SMS plus.
    FCEU.
    Jewel quest(I think).
    Quake.

    I think thats all, but I might be wrong.

    Check wii-brew.org, they have a lot of homebrew.

    Try taking out the batteries and putting them back in. I find that that works for me.
