Is the Wii Worth it?

I always thought the wii wasn't for me. I find a lot of elements...stupid and useless... I've had multiple chances to own a wii, but have turned them down... Lately a couple of good games have come out, but not enough to convince me to buy it though. So, do you think the wii is worth buying?

Wii troubles?

Ok, so my Nintendo Wii, which we have had for about 3 years decided to stop reading disks about 2 months ago. It played the downloaded games just fine but now we cant even get the Wii remotes to register on screen. I can get the hand to show up if i plug the Wii remote into our guitar hero 3 controller and use the analog stick on that but thats it. We keep it in our basement and we have 3 cats so its rather dusty. Im just wondering is it a software problem and would formatting it do anything or is it dust on the lens or some other hardware problem. I was going to format it to see if it would do anything but Im afraid that we might loose all of our save data, and I cant remember what my user name or password was for the Wii shop channel so i cant recover any of that save data either. Any and all help is greatly appreciated.

Multifunctional Wii

Okay.... So, a couple of days ago, my friend was running around and ran through the cable for my Gamecube controller connected to my Wii, the Wii fell a good 3 feet (just an estimate). And now the Eject Disk Button is jammed a little and every once in a while the Wii completely shuts it self off. Not like pressing the off button, but like pulling the power plug. I can't send it to Nintendo because I have homebrew on it and I don't want to lose it. What can I do?

Wii Dilemma (Wiilemma?) Wii have a problem!!!

I just bought a year old used wii. I am worried. I have wi-fi. I want to use the wii with wi-fi. I had read that when the wii launched, a wiiconnect24 update made some wii units completely unusable! I am worried. The people who I bought it from never used wi-fi on the wii. It had a 1 year warranty, which expires in about 3 weeks. I got a good deal on the wii, so shut up. Question: If I update it now, will it crash??

Custom Wii Gun

I remeber back to the summer I was at an arcade playing Ghost Squad. Now that it is out on the wii, the fun was only half way there. I played with the wii zapper, and as much fun as it was, it just isn't cutting it. My favorite part was the force feedback gun that gave some recoil. I decided to go making my own, but I can't think of something to give enough punch. I plan to make a PVC gun outline and encase the wii remote. I would then rig a trigger on the PVC rifle to pull the fire button on the wii remote. From there, I could connect the wires so at a certain point on the PVC trigger pull, an electrical current would be completed activating the recoil. I started with thinking about takeing out the rumble motors in some old game controlers, but that would only go so far. I really wanted a staight back and forth movement. I started to think about taking a piston similar to an airsoft gun, were the motor cranks a gear that pulls the pistion back. This gear as some teeth shaved clean so that after so far of an extend, the teeth would inentially slip causing the built up spring to push the piston back into the starting position. Before it got too complicated and I started to build it, I wanted to make sure this was possible. Is it possible/practical? What type of feedback should I use, and were can I get it? -John

Gamecube Controller for Wii

With the Wii U coming out without any nintendo gamecube controller ports, I was wondering if it were possible to still somehow mod a gamecube controller so that it could work on a Wii U.  Since classic controllers that plug into a Wii Remote will work on a Wii U, i was curious to know whether it is possible for a gamecube controller to be modded so that it is recognized as a Classic controller.  Somehow connecting a gamecube controller to a Wii remote, since a classic controller and a gamecube controller have pretty much the same buttons.  If this is possible how would it be done?

EyeTracking (with Wii )... !! possible?

For those who are thinking to themselves "Jonny Chung beat you to it long time ago".... Don't jump to conclusion. I'm here to use his idea and give it a little twist. (if its possible that is) So let me know if this is worth pursuing... because i'm sure someone must have thought of this already... I'm also nowhere close to being a developer... with that said lets jump into what i want to call Basically i want to use our EYES to reflect Infrared to the wiimote to calibrate the movement ... and capture it and do something cool with it...    -  steer a car in a racing game...  -  look around in a 3d environment  just by moving ur head...  -  maybe even use it as a mouse and Wink with one eye to click? im waiting for a friend of mine to find time to build me that IR LED board Jonny Chung used in one of his videos. IF anyone thinks this is something to look into, I would like to be notified.

My Wii will no longer play Wii games. What's going on?

I've had my Wii for a little over a year now. It just stopped playing Wii games about a month ago, but it still continues to play Gamecube games perfectly fine.

Anyone getting MW:R for wii?

Hey yeah I could have probably put this in a better category but about the only people I care about adding are people from the K'nex section. So is anyone getting Modern Warfare Reflex? I gotta send my wii in for repair which kind of sucks seeing how I know I won't get it back until way after Reflex comes out (though I'll probably be hanging out at my friend's and sister's playing MW2 on their Xboxes) so don't expect an FC anytime soon. I did awesome in WaW. My starting account had about a 1.4 K/D and I never played an online FPS for wii before. My main account after that has a 2.23 and rising. I haven't used it much since starting to snipe and shotgun. My sniping account has an even 2.0 I think last time I checked. I started a shotgunning account right before my wii broke but I don't remember my K/D. I know it was at least over 1.5 and maybe over 2.0. And then I made another account for lolz to see how high I could get my K/D and had somewhere in the 7.0 range. So yeah point is it would be beneficial to add me =P

K'nex Challenge for Wii Owners

Alright, I had a nice idea. I notice there are few Wii Zapper peripherals that are easy to use. Most are cheap pieces of plastic that cost much more than they need to and they still suck. There was one though that looked promising but still wasn't quite that comfortable. Here's the challenge. Make the easiest to use zapper body construction for a Wii remote and nunchuck. Some ideas are: Add a stock. Maybe some sort of stand you can rest the gun on to make aiming even easier? Add K'nex levers and buttons that press the Wii controller buttons. Make a trigger that presses the Z button and make a fake charging handle that presses the C button maybe? Tilt the remote sideways so it's easier to reach all the top buttons. Remember, comfort and ease of use. Those are important. It'd also be nice if it looked decent. Think any of you can handle it?

wii induction charger battery pack

Hey ppl, I bought an energizer wii induction charger earlier this year. A few months later, I started getting a red flashinglight on the charger and the batteries wouldn't charge anymore. I got the battery packs replaced because it was still under warranty, and I still have the old battery packs. I opened them up because they're pretty simple to dismantle (just 2 screws) and there are two unbranded AAA batteries. I was wondering if any rechargeable AAA battery can be used with it. Also any ideas on other possible uses for this induction hardware? Check out the pics below:

Why the Wii can not get viruses? Answered

I already am aware that it is next to impossible to a virus on the Wii, because it has no hardrive, can not run software that has not been secured by nintendo, can not store internet cookies , it can not run any .exe's, has its own porccessor architexture, and its OS does not run like a standard computer OS as long as you have a completely un modded Wii. (which i have). Plus i even have our wireless router set up to use WPA2, pretty much the second most secure wireless encrption. I have explained this to my Dad, but he still thinks you can EASILY get viruses easily on the Wii. SO could someone please give me a easy to understand explaination on why the Wii can not get viruses that i could tell him. Please try to make it very simple and not using very much computer jargan. Note: We also only go on the interent to play other people with games through the WiFi. And you also can't communicate(like talk or chat) with other people when playing the games.
