Have you tried hitting Alt f5 to reconnect the Wiimote? Certain games disconnect the Wiimote at points and then let them be reconnected at a later point, usually after a loadscreen while booting a game.

Thanks. ALT+F5 disconnect and reconnect the wiimote for two seconds in this game. Cursor stay on screen but the wiimote not functional.

Is this a bug checked and trusted by someone else? Or my mistake? Checked newer versions and have this bug too... speaker data and rumble modification can't help, unfortunately.

Can you test more revisions other than just 3.5? There's thousands of revisions in there. Try 4.0.2. try 4.0-1000ish, try something between that, you get the idea. Just keep cutting in half until you find something that broke it.

#5 Updated by ervin.hegedus almost 6 years ago

Thanks. I tried 4.0-17xx, default 4.0, not working so since 4.0 have the
bug. 3.5-3xx working, too. Should I hope somebody looking into it?

can you find the exact build that the game stopped working? If you do that, we can help you much more easily, since we don't have the game, it's up to you to narrow it down.

By doing a binary search (cutting the number of builds you have to test in half every time) it won't take long. You know 4.0 is broken, and 3.5-3xx is broken. So, go to about 3.5-1200ish if it exists, if it's broken then try 3.5-700ish, if 1200 works, you try 1800ish, cutting the amount of possible builds in half with every search.

If you don't do that, we have virtually no chance of fixing it.

I will try it... but can't access for older builds, just a few.
