    Anyone able to get the wiimote to work on Retropie 2.6 if so can you provide a working tutorial I tried one but it was for old emulationstation and did not seem to work..

    Raspberry Pi B 512mb
    Generic 64gb SD
    Overclock Turbo

    Raspberry Pi B+ 512mb
    Generic 128gb MicroSD
    Overclock Turbo

    Raspberry Pi2 B 1gb
    Samsung Evo 16gb MicroSD
    Overclock Pi2



    I have to ask – why? 🙂

    Nothing that the Pi can run would benefit from the motion controls on a WiiMote… Except maybe MAME gun games? That’d be a pretty good challenge to get working on the Pi

    Anyways… How are you connecting the WiiMote? You need some kind of bluetooth interface and a sensor bar. I have a DolphinBar, I’d be willing to try it but there are no drivers for DolphinBar on linux



    Got one Wii remote with the Classic Controller working by following a tutorial.
    When it connects, there are no blue lights shown.
    Works on the ES menu, but I had to map it for Stella, which I run as a stand alone emulator (not Stella-libretro).



    Its not for the Wiimote abilities most likely. Its because the Classic controller connects to the Wiimote… and the classic controller is most likely the greatest retro controller available. And you do not need a sensor bar for the Classic.

    I would like this too. I have a compatible bluetooth adapter.
