[Tutorial] Using WiiMote as default joypad in Linux for PokeMMO


Recommended Posts

Hi, i'm linux user!

So, first of all i must admit i dont like the pixelated graphics without antialiasing. Because this i decided to playing pokemmo not in my monitor but in my televisor with some meters of distance of my eyes.
 

 
Yes, i have a dualshock and yes, works as well but it's have a battery and sometime the battery it's running low, when this happens, i drop  the dualshock and i start to use my WIIMOTE.
The wiimote don't have recognized axis by the system, that's why the simples "translators" gamepad to keyboard + mouse don't serve.
 
 
So, i will put in this tread my configuration using the wiimote community drivers for linux, for my companios of pokemmo use or improve this.


You will need a wiimote and bluetooh receptor to use the Wiimote in your S.O


First of all, install this packages in your linux system:
 
 
(open the terminal)


sudo apt-get install libcwiid1 lswm wmgui wminput
 

More information here: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/CWiiD



After that, in the terminal put this code
 

sudo gedit /etc/cwiid/wminput/pokemmo
 

When opens, put this content

#start here
 
Plugin.ir_ptr.X = ABS_X
Plugin.ir_ptr.Y = ABS_Y
 
 
 
 
#custom buttons for PokeMMO
Wiimote.Up              = KEY_UP
Wiimote.Down     = KEY_DOWN 
Wiimote.Left     = KEY_LEFT
Wiimote.Right   = KEY_RIGHT
Wiimote.A               = KEY_Z
Wiimote.B               = KEY_X 
 
Wiimote.Minus   = KEY_C 
Wiimote.Plus   = KEY_V  
Wiimote.Home   = KEY_D
 
Wiimote.1       = KEY_N
Wiimote.2       = KEY_G
 
Nunchuk.C               = BTN_RIGHT
Nunchuk.Z               = BTN_LEFT
 
#Nunchuck
Plugin.nunchuk_kb.Up = KEY_F1
Plugin.nunchuk_kb.Down = KEY_F2
Plugin.nunchuk_kb.Left = KEY_F3 
Plugin.nunchuk_kb.Right = KEY_F4 

 

Save it and close.



So, after that, put your wiimote in discovery mod and past this code in terminal and press enter:


sudo wminput -c /etc/cwiid/wminput/pokemmo




Done, you are totally prepared to play PokeMMO with your WiiMote!

=D 

(yes, you can close your terminal)
