    hello all,

    use the app:

    the concepts are the same for the classic and motion.

    the standard whammies are:
    not enabling ime controller in settings/input
    not mapping the keys
    there is another option as well, this might be your issue:
    in sNESOID --> settings / other settings: CHECK USE INPUT METHOD ( enable special input device)

    you will be playing super mario world soon.

    you threw me way off talking about the pin code for bluetooth synch, because you shouldn't see that. I know he didn't write the other tutorial, because I am him. lol

    The reason that you are seeing that pin stuff is because you are trying to sync over bluetooth DO NOT DO THAT. tun your bluetooth on and then the rest if the instructions are in the wiimote. click IME controller and you should see the sync in the app from there. once it is synced you can press buttons and the output will be in the wiimote app.

    If you are using snesoid make sure you go into the settings and checkmatk the box for allow input method.
    I miss my friend Matt McQuinn he touched so many lives, and in the end gave his life to protect someone that he loved. I am proud to have known him, and of the choices he made when it mattered. You were a true hero.

    I changed the settings in snesoid like you said and im still having problems connecting.

    The Wiimote app does the following after hitting Init and Connect...:

    Initializing...
    Searching...
    Found 1 wiimote(s)
    connecting...
    connected to 1 wiimotes.
    Setting LEDS...

    Done...
    Polling button data...
    Wiimote 1 disconnected
    Stopping the polling process...
    Stopped.

    WHAT AM I DOING WRONG?

    My wiimote will NOT stay on. It is driving me insane. I pushed buttons while wiimote controller was trying to sync it and for example it said pressed button WM1->8, released it blah bah but it keeps disconnecting. wtf?

    I am facing exact same problem on an Android 4.1.1 tablet. Wiimote inits and connects succesfully (LED1 comes on) but disconnects the moment I press a key on it.
