    im going to make a standup arcade cab with 2 sticks and 16 buttons
    is it worth me trying to get the wiimotes ir working as lightguns? if it is i will add the ir leds to the cab (AKA sensor bar).
    im not fussed about the accelerometer axis or the d pad just the ir and buttons.

    my questions are

    will retropie have the BT modules installed so the wiimote actually pairs with retropie and do we know if possible to get the IR working ?
    only my boy loves house of dead 🙂
    Cheers

    Not saying it can’t be done, but I haven’t seen anybody do it.

    It’s likely it would require recoding of the emulator to utilise that functionality of the wiimotes.

    I’m making an arcade cabinet too, and I’d like so much to use a Wiimote (IR pointer) as a lightgun… or event 2 wiimotes !

    Please help !
