Description

Have you searched the issue tracker for a similar issue?
Yes, 2011

Game Name?
New Super Mario Bros Wii. (Example)

It would be cool to add a "Low Battery" option to the emulated Wiimote, back in 2011 , the issue was closed because no games would require it. Now , in 2013 , hacking games is easy , so when I want to hack the layouts (the low battery menu) of New super mario bros. wii , I can't , because Dolphin's Wiimote is always at full battery.

It would help the modders out there to edit the Low Battery menu.

thanks

If you want to just hard code it, it's set in WiimoteEmu.cpp at line 244.

and where is the WiimoteEmu.cpp located? I searched through dolphin's files and source and didn't find it.

I'm building it right now, but why do we need DX SDK? it builds fine without it (VSU2012)

We don't want to update the Windows project files to VS2012 (which includes DX SDK) because that breaks XP support, IIRC.

I did update to VS2012 , since I'm a Windows 8 user , I had to get Windows 8 SDK , which keeps on giving me d3dx9.h not found. I got the DX SDK too , and I made sure the lib/include files are leading correctly. And it still didn't work :\

This isn't really the place to discuss this.

If you need help compiling dolphin, you can ask at http://forums.dolphin-emu.org/index.php or on irc, #dolphin-emu on freenode.

I'd love to mark this accepted, but I'm pretty sure everyone else would kill me.

Updated by thethiny over 9 years ago

Well then you'd have to get acceptance from everyone else, which is a "no" :\
I don't get it why wouldn't that be an option?

Screw it. If worst comes to worst, we can blackmail someone into implementing it.

Would be possible to send battery status of Xinput controllers to Emulated Wiimote? Would be useful to get a nice battery warning status messages with mapped controllers :)
