Game Name? Wii Play: Motion

Game ID? SC8E01

What's the problem? Describe what went wrong in few words.
1) Wiimote cursor freezes in main menu, the only solution is to disconnect and connect it again. But it can freeze again in a few seconds
2) While trying to play multiplayer with two wiimotes, game shows a message "Please remove the external extension controller from the wii remote". After removing motion plus from wiimotes, controllers shows as "ready" but then message shows up "motion plus is not connected" and after connecting it again - message does not dissappear and it all starts again with "Please remove the external extension controller from the wii remote".
Connecting and disconnecting nunchuck does not help.

What did you expect to happen instead?
1) Wii cursor should not freeze during the game
2) Miltiple wiimotes should work fine without any issues

What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. Star menu shows up with "press A and B to start" and then cursor freezes.
2. In any game mode with multiplayer, select two players
3. When trying to start the game message shows up "Please remove the external extension controller from the wii remote".

latest Dolphin version first.

3.5 144

Does using an older version of Dolphin solve your issue? If yes, which

Toshiba Bluetooth Stack. Works perfectly in other games.

If someone can tell me which log options to turn on that can help to isolate cause of the problem, i would gladly participate in fixing this issue

It's likely a sysconf issue; dumping a real NAND from a Wii will fix it.

Tried it, no effect.

I'm getting the same message. I'm using a single real Wii-mote with Mayflash Dolphin-bar and Dolphin v4.0.7182.

I can't reproduce the freezing Wiimote. I can reproduce the Wiimote thinking there is an unknown device attached, but, we have a separate issue for that.

Played through the first four minigames.
