ajh.remote is not compatible with Max OS 10.8+. OSCulator is the most reliable solution with the Wii.

I’m not glad, but am glad to hear someone else has this problem, I was worried that I had deleted a framework (computer has had some harsh crashes lately that has caused a small amount of data loss). I had recently opened up a piece I wrote last year with Wii-Remotes only to find it non-functioning. The thing is, I swear I wrote the piece on a version of OS 10.8… I think the problem has stemmed from an incremental update to 10.8.

The problem with the OSCulator solution is that it is not free. A before people get up in arms about that comment, I want to point out that I don’t mind paying for the software… what I do mind is asking other people who may want to perform my composition written for Wii-Remote to purchase OSCulator. I provide my Max patch as a runtime software for free, the code is available as well, and I am already requiring the performer get access to a Wii-Remote (which can be borrowed free of charge, and were so prevalent at one point that access to them should be easy), but I don’t want to require another software to run my piece when that software is not free.

This seems to be a problem with using the Wii-Remote in Max… every time I find an object I like that works well (originally aka.wiiremote, and then ajh.wiiremote), a Mac OS update prevents its use.

Don’t know which features of the Wii remote you need, but DFRobot has recently put on the market – as a separate component – the infrared camera used in the remote. Either with a wired or a wireless connection (XBee) you could bypass the Bluetooth connection to the Mac using an Arduino or a Raspberry Pi.

I got the ‘Starting search’ message but no connection. Does any of you guys have a clue on this? Best!

Hey there

I’m on Mavericks too – just downloaded these updates – I get a connection – and I can activate the vibrations on the Wiimote via the helpfile patcher – but I can’t get any data from the Wiimote… any suggestions?
