Can you change the IR pointer to work like a mouse on a gamepad?

For example, instead of always returning the IR cursor to the center of the screen I'd like it to stay where it last was and use the analog stick to move it around, etc.

Any of you dudes having issues with control might want to give GlovePIE a try. When people first started messing with Wii remotes, GlovePIE was used pretty exclusively.

Originally designed for some weird glove controller, it is input emuluation software and you can use it to pretty much bind any controller input to any output, beit USB controllers or bluetooth-connected input devices like the wiimote, which it has coded-in support for specifically.

An example is that you can bind the Wii remote's x axis to midi pitch and y axis to midi note and then set a variable for volume, and then set the variable to 0 by default and 100 while holding A, and bam, ghetto theremin. Not exactly dolphin-related, but very much wii related and a lot of fun to mess with. You can bind windows functions like minimize and mouse control, do text to speech, it's insane.

Vinlaen, you could probably hack glovepie to make your gamepad emulate relative wii IR pointer. GlovePIE is ridiculous.

Try different sound engines. HLE can be less accurate and sometimes has issues emulating sound. LLE is more accurate but quite a bit slower. Each of these engines have audio backends too, like Xaudio2 and Directsound. Try each of these combinations.

Also, sometimes you'll get popping and skipping from LLE if you aren't running completely at full speed. Even 1% or 2% slower that full speed will cause skipping.

Like I said I've tried every possible combination. They all give the exact same result, albeit with varying speed. The audio is always unchanged.

Penetrative action is a pretty central fact of male sexuality. Young boys unconsciously imitate the movements in their sleep without ever having seen them or knowing what they mean.

Is there a fix for getting music only from one speaker and regular sounds from the other? I'm currently enjoying getting to play Metroid Prime 2 again but everything's weirdly split like that, there's no proper stereo.

The music constantly crackles in The Wind Waker. I've tried dolphin 2.0, r6515, and r7661, fiddled with every available audio option to me but to no avail. The game will quite happily run at full speed with no issues but the crackling and popping in the BGM is driving me nuts. Tried 2 different ISOs as well, PAL and NTSC.

Are you sure you're actually using LLE audio? Make sure you have panic handlers enabled so you get a message if LLE refuses to work due to missing/bad DSP ROMs. The crackling in HLE is a known problem, but LLE is basically perfect for me.

Are you playing the GC version or the Wii Trilogy version? I ripped my GC copy this morning and It's got a bad flicker and I frequently lose the ability to scan (That's apparently related to the embedded frame buffer, neat). I suppose it's cause I have to use OpenGL cause I'm using the Mac build or something along those lines.

GC, yes. I haven't had any issues with flicker or scanning so far, though, but I use the Windows version.

I do own the Wii Trilogy Version, but I haven't managed to get it working in any capacity yet. Apparently there's this issue with Dolphin not supporting soft resets and multiple games on the same disc, and I don't really know how to edit the image to make it work properly.

Anybody using a gamepad analog stick for the IR pointer? Is there any way to stop it from returning to center always?

I mean, that's really the design of an analog stick. It always returns to center. I've never taken one apart, but it seems like you would have to and remove what I'm assuming is a spring that keeps it centered.

Can't you just use your mouse?

He's not asking for the joystick to not return to center, but the cursor. It's something you could probably program for it to do.

Even if you use a mouse for the IR sensor, it snaps to the center always too. I'm not sure if that's how the Wii or the program works. Dashed my hopes of using it for HotD: Overkill and Star Successor because I'd have to keep lifting and dragging the house at hyperspeed to shoot stuff on the edges of the screen.

No, but it seems to be ignoring my demand that it bind to mouse input. Currently having the same problem.

EDIT: My OpenGL settings are all hosed too and messing with the controls too much crashes it. This may be from a week ago (r7669), but I'm gonna wait a while longer before I bother with Dolphin. It's currently still 10x of broken since 3.0.

EDIT2: Oh, right, I unplugged my 360 pad and did the bindings again. Didn't work so I immediately tried again and it crashed the app.

Yes, there's the 1.7 alpha that was released in may last year. It pretty much runs everything thrown at it save for a few of the more later games such as Indiana Jones and the Rogue Squadron / Battle for Naboo games that use really intricate coding to work the 64 to it's limits.

That's the problem, I don't have any of the earlier builds that ran well. I usually keep a few archives around too.

Am I missing a link on the site where I can go 2-weeks before the 3.0 merge and have Dolphin working again?

To configure it the way you want follow these steps:

1. Click the Wiimote icon
2. Click the Configure button in the 'Emulated Wiimote' section
3. Select 'DInput/0/Keyboard Mouse' from the Device dropdown
4. Right-Click on the 'Up' button in the 'IR' section, the 'Configure Control' dialog should pop up.
5. Scroll down to the bottom and click on 'Cursor Y-', click Select, then OK.

Repeat step 5 for Down, Left, and Right.

Down should be 'Cursor Y+', Left should be 'Cursor X-', Right should be 'Cursor X+'

When you have it auto detect and move your mouse it defaults to the 'Axis' which springs back to the center. The 'Cursor' ones do not.


edit: Fixed step 4

One change, but this actually works as far as the configuration dialogue is concerned. However I suspect this will just fast forward my plan to get a cheap Chinese wired bar and do the USB-powered mod to it.

- Download DSPSpy Dumper.
- Extract the folder and copy it over to your Wii's SD card under the \apps\ folder for homebrew.
- Go to your Wii's Homebrew Channel and run the DSPSpy Dumper to dump dsp_coef.bin and dsp_rom.bin to your SD card.
- Copy those files to your <Dolphin>\Sys\GC\ folder.

You need a wireless sensor bar to make the wiimote work, right? Which one do you guys use? I'm getting a fancy new i5 next week and I figure I'd give this a try to test my new CPU. Will 3.3 GHz be enough to run most games at full speed?

The wiimote will work without pointer action without a sensor bar, but you need a wireless sensor bar to get any IR control, yeah. You'll also need a bluetooth dongle if you don't have one or some other way to connect bluetooth devices, in order to connect your wii remote.

I also wouldn't have high hopes to be able to "run most games at full speed." Wii emulation requires a lot of tinkering to get any games to run at full speed regardless of your PC. Don't expect to run any games without downloading a special configuration first, and even then some games won't run at full speed or will have something broken and there's nothing you can do about it. Don't mean to rain on your parade, dude, but don't expect everything to go super amazing the moment you try it out.

For all the hubbub about how this emulator is slow and you need the beefiest of machines ever to run everything wonderfully, I've had surprisingly little problems.

I downloaded the latest stable release, did everything as explained in the example config stuff the OP links to and tried Super Paper Mario Wii, Tatsunoko vs. Capcom and Star Trek Conquest. Admittedly not the most taxing games for the Wii but they all ran at a steady 60 FPS at 1680x1050 with a Q9550 C2Q running at ~3.6 GhZ and a 560TI.

I honestly thought the old Quad-Core would slow me down, since I doubt the 560 TI would have a big problem with any of this, but as I said.. all three games run at a beautiful 60 FPS with no slowdown at all.

The only problem I've run into so far is that TvC randomly freezes up for a couple of seconds with the sound looping. Seems to happen more the more is going on on screen. It's weird cause it's not a slowdown issue. Might be a sound plugin problem or something? That and some fiddling with the controller configuration and I should be good to go!

Actually you can use two candles instead of an IR bar. Just don't burn down your TV or house to get some 1080p Wii games going.

As for the speed, I was getting full speed on my i5-2500K/Radeon 6850 pre-3.0 in Sonic Colors. Dolphin 3.0 took me down to 50%-75% speed.

r6515 displays the health bars but for some reason I get a really annoying screen flicker that makes it unplayable.

my most up to date version is r7690 and that's where the glitch is happening (and the couple other past revisions I tried). It still does it on OpenGL. OpenGL also has another issue where the lighting is all screwed up and switches between different colors, turning the game into a rave.

I guess my best bet is figuring out what's causing the flickering in 6515 and see if I can fix that. I messed around with pretty much all the settings to no avail.

edit: r7625 works fine so it might not be a texcache rewrite issue. Not sure what revision it breaks at, but it wasn't at the rewrite's implementation. At least I have a playable version now.
