Using The WiiMote To Control PC Games

wiimote

By David Ponce

It’s pretty amazing just how quick the hacking community can get its act together and come out with cool stuff. In barely two weeks since the Wii launch, comes news of an updated version of GlovePIE, functional software that would allegedly allow anyone to use their WiiMote as an input device to control PC games and applications. GlovePIE (which stands for Glove Programmable Input Emulator) is software that was originally created to control applications through the use of Virtual Gloves, but it’s been recently updated to include support for the WiiMote:

With GlovePIE you can now play any game, or control any software or MIDI devices, using whatever controls you want. This includes joysticks, gamepads, mice, keyboards, MIDI input devices, HMDs, Wiimotes, trackers, and of course, Virtual Reality Gloves!

I haven’t tested this myself, as I’m still Wii-less, but maybe Andrew can give it a look when he gets back. Or, even more fun, you people can try it out and let us know how it went in the comments. Either way, there you have it: using the Wiimote on a PC. Fun stuff.

    Read the stipulation for the glovepie download.

    New Version 0.22

    Now with Wiimote support! Play Wii games on your PiiCii.

    Download version 0.22 of GlovePIE here.

    Just extract it to a directory of your choosing. Then run it. There is nothing to install. If you want to associate .PIE files with GlovePIE, you will need to do so yourself.

    NOTE! You may not use this software on military bases, or for military purposes, or in Israel (which amounts to the same thing). Violation of the license agreement will be prosecuted. See the readme for the license agreement.

    Either the author of this software is a SUPERLIBERAL LEFT WINGER, A NAZI, or a militant MUSLIM, or all of the above. In any case, Carl Kenner is an anti semite and a RACIST. A despicable man indeed.

    oh here comes another victim jew calling everyone an anti semite

    GET OVER IT

    WE DONT CARE ANYMORE

    Or possibly its a matter of security, imagine if someone were to setup a wiimote on a bluetooth enabled pc or laptop, said laptop or pc could have sensative information on it. Wiimote with its wireless connection could potentially be a security risk. Imagine being able to mess around on a computer from a safe distance where no one would suspect you, granted youd still have to be relativly close, but the possibility is there. Just a thought. Also seems more likely at least to me anyway.

    Or imagine if Hillary Clinton comes into the power and she makes Carl Kenner becomes National Security Advisor to her and advices her to make military strikes in Israel.

    Weird how a simple software for game controllers is becoming involved in politics.
    I wonder what the palastinians who want to use it will do? If they are victims – why forsing them to move out of israel for a piece of software?
    With all the respect – this is a bullsheet and if you ask me – it is already hacked to bypass the limitation (which is hilarious to me).
    And about problem itself – as to who is right and who is wrong? Palastinians(Hamas/Fatach)? Israelis? If there was a simple right – the issue would have resolved long time a go. It seems that even Carl (or who ever he is) believes he have a solution – peace. Go a head – let's see you convincing Hamas to sign a peace agreement – for that to happen – they will want all the Israelis to leave Israel and let them have the country for themselvs. So what he is saying actually is the Israel should give up, give the whole country to the palastinians and stay without a country.
    Hmm… Well he's right – he have nothing against jews – he just want Israel to give up (the result will be a mass murder of the Israeli people by the palastinian).
    So – as an Israeli – I don't think so.
    BTW, I have it cracked
