Picture of How to Use a Wiimote as Your Computer's Mouse
Ever wondered what cool things you can do with a Wiimote? If so, this is definitely where you should start- using it as a mouse!

Step 1: Step 1: Materials

1. A Wiimote (of course)
2. WiiMotionPlus (actually is built into some new Wiimotes!)
3. Bluetooth Connectivity
4. Glove_Pie and my custom Wiimote program
5. A Wii Nunchuk

NOTE: If the .PIE files are downloaded as .TMPs, you'll need to donwload them in (I hate to say this..) Internet Explorer and copy the text into Glove_PIE.

I know you uploaded this a while ago and might not answer, but I'm having some trouble with this. I'm doing everything right (I think), but GlovePie says "WiiMotion Plus NOT DETECTED!" even though I opened the file you said to (the one you download from the instructable page). What am I doing wrong?

Are you sure the Wiimote is paired with your computer?

Don't you need to use the ir bar, or does the screen acts as a light source?

It reads the output from the MotionPlus sensor, so you don't need an ir bar.

The PIE file still is a .temp, the link even leads to a temp. when i get the address
. Please help!

If you copy the text into glove_pie, it works too.
Ah, I found out how. I opened it with Notepad and c&p'ed it.

all the files are .tmp files not .pie or .exe. Would you mind finding out what's wrong or just reuploading them? I'd like to try this out.
Derpancakes (author)  finfan74 years ago
of course... ill try re adding the files
Derpancakes (author)  Derpancakes4 years ago
OK... I fixed it.. I even tested it this time... sorry for the problems.
Thank you for your quick response but it seems the problem must be on my end or in instructables. The exe is a zip now but the other two are still tmp. Thanks all the same.
Derpancakes (author)  finfan74 years ago
oh... the other two... i didnt even thin k about those! sorry... ill fix it asap!!
Derpancakes (author)  Derpancakes4 years ago
just open the link and copy the text into Glove_Pie......
I switched to IE to see it as text and then it copied just fine. I should be trying it sometime today. Thank you for the extra effort. It was most helpful.
Derpancakes (author)  finfan74 years ago
sorry fpr all the trouble.... hopefully ill do better posting stuff now..........
It's not your fault. The issue was somewhere between us. You were most helpful and I doubt the problem was in any way caused by you.

Nice, however some images would be good...

How responsive is this with the computer anyway?
Derpancakes (author)  killerjackalope4 years ago

Cool, if I get my hands on a wiimote for a day I'll test it out...
Derpancakes (author)  killerjackalope4 years ago
