I like the grip a lot for shooting games like Resident Evil, but to me it lacked the visual accents that a real gun has. Accents like the flash when the gun is shot.
This instructable is pretty simple and easy to follow. I also added a rechargable battery so it doesn't use the Wii remote's battery power, they run out fast enough as it is.
Step 1: Materials and Tools
-1x Slider switch or rocker switch, must be pretty small
-1x small form factor rechargable battery - 3.6 volts
-1x momentary switch - The softer and quieter the better - I think that is the type of switch
-Lots of wire, thin wire
-1x headphone jack and socket
-1x cell phone backlight or white LED
-Hot glue gun and plenty of glue
Step 2: Take It Apart
You need to take out all of the screws you can see, there are two hidden on the blue handgrip piece. Take a flat screwdriver or the sort and slide it under the edge to pop it out. the one that covers the screws is on the same side as all of the other screw holes.
Around the trigger it is glued together, you might need to use that flat screwdriver again to pry it apart. Be careful, it is very easy to break.
Carefully remove the orange clasp at the top by pulling the sides away from the gun. It is also quite easy to break.
Step 3: Put It Together
Step 4: Put It In
Use plenty of hot glue for the parts that have pressure applied to them, like the switches and charging socket.
Step 5: Close It Up
you need to push the spring against the plastic stopper that it originally pressed against.
Dont forget to snap the orange clasp back in.
Step 6: Use It!
If it doesn't work,
-Are there shorts? put some electrical tape or shrink tubing on the connections.
-Is the battery dead? Before you put in a battery, put a 9v batteries' + and - connections to the red (+) and black (-) wires coming off of the battery for about 20 seconds and test it by hooking up an LED.
-Is the battery no good? If you tried the above suggestion, try a different rechargable battery.
-Is the battery good but it still wont work? Test the LEDs and switches, If they work, recheck the wiring.
