I'm not a huge fan of Maple Story, but I have characters. I've been playing it since it's first Beta tests, and I have the bandanna to prove it :)

I haven't played it in a while but now my wife and best friend want to LAN party, so I wanted to spice the game up a little bit. Here's how I did that.

In this instrutcable, I will explain the steps to using a Wiimote to play MapleStory Global.

Step 1: Requirements

For this you will need the following:
(Do not extract zip files until you read the next step.)

A compatible bluetooth USB adapter or bluetooth enabled PC and bluetooth 'stack'

For safety's sake, I'll be hosting the proper package.

A Wiimote with Nunchuk
I Know I May take a bit of your time i want to swing my WiiMote Up Down Forwards and Backwards and the Nuncuck: Left Right Forwards and Backwards If you do this it might make this instructables even better! :) But GOOD JOB BTW! (note: your heaps good at programing T_T its so hard for me and that code is just to confusing.)
 im sorry to inform you that the link is broken
Not to be mean but why wold you wast your time making it work for Maplestory Maplestory no offense but it's a poor man's Wow.
its a great game, and since maplestory is free to play then EVERYONE can play, except those with no computer and internet connection......<br /> wow needs a fee to play, which means that wow hasnt got a good player list.<br /> Maplestory has optional extras for those who pay<br /> <br /> free&nbsp;games with optional extras get more players than pay2play games (ie. WoW)<br /> <br />
Because it works, and it's fun. You should also note that Maplestory has been around much longer than WoW. Thanks for trolling!
Ok man don't assume I am stupid I know Maplestory has been around longer than Wow.
That doesn't mean you have a right to flame.
*dumps water*
Yeah dude don't assume he's stupid. Geez. People these days.
i love your tutorial so far but when i go in to choose ppjoy in glovepie nothing happens
same here
oh wait, go to step one, (ppjoy wasnt installed)
To Gordon, first, nice name and secong a wow glove-pie script is already pacaged with glove-pie.
So, can this be used for any windows application and not just maple? and, is all that is needed is the remote, and a bluetooth adapter? do you have to have a wii for this to work?
Definately do not need a Wii, just a Wiimote.
Thank you. And my friend made a website explaining it all. I will post the link here if he says it's ok.
Isn't Buuf great?
Quite. When I used Windows, it was my poison of choice, along with Litestep.
Do you need an IR Sensor bar for this? I thought you needed one to pick up movement.
Nope. All movement controls used in this are based on the accelerometers. There's no way (that I know of) that allows a third-party app to control a "hack-protected" game or I would have added IR support, eliminating the use of a keyboard (essentially).
Hmmm, then there's something wrong with my bluetooth dongle. I guess it should have been a clue when it wasnt listed on the list of bluetooth dongles you supplied. Not even tested.... The battery was kind of low on the wii remote I tried it on so I'll try a different one today.
I don't know if my Bluetooth dongle will work because its not on the list you provide. Its a Belkin Model: F8T003 Version 2 It works fine for connecting the wii remote to the pc but I can't do anything with it.
i have an ir sensor in my computer whats that?
first of all, ir means infared, and an ir sensor picks up data sent over an infared beam.
is ppjoy compatible with windows xp? when i install it there is a warning that says the program hasn't been aproved by the windows logo or something like that.
Tell it to "continue anyway". It's compatible, and the Windows Logo program is bollocks ;)
you're positive right, because i don't want bad side effects.
IT WILL WORK the logo thing means it isn't bought, sponsored by, or recognized by the Microsoft corp, it is just installing a driver, it'll be ok
No I'm just guessing I actually have no clue as to whether or not it will wor-- oh wait, yeah, I'm positive ;) I wouldn't say something like that unless sure.
3 questions: Do you have to do the key configuration in maple story? I tried to use the wiimote in maple story but it isn't working. When i minimize PPJOY, why does it close? Thanks a lot:)
in the second step on the paragraph about ppjoy, you said "Next, use the EXE file to download a second ZIP file." how do you do that??? maybe a video or an exact explanation would help ( i have windows xp) thank:)
I have update the instructable. I am now hosting the complete package and no sandbox program is required. See step 2.
thanks but i still have a problem. i can't seem to open the ppjoy program. i click the website, click save the file (the file is rar), then i try to extract but there is nothing to extract, if i open it it doesn't open. what should i do?
Be sure to use the latest version of Winrar from RARLabs as other package programs don't necessarily work right with later versions of Winrar archives.
The problem is that the author of that program has his application strewn across two hosts. The original file is on an old host and the new file is hosted by a file distribution service that requires you to use a "downloader" that will install spyware on your system. If I can contact the author then perhaps I can host the complete package, since both parts are needed to get it working. That's the best I can do right now, sorry.
lol i know how to do this iwth a ps2/ps1 controller
