wii Dance Dance Revolution

March 20, 2009 | 1:42 am

I am curious if anyone has been successful at using data from a wii dance dance revolution pad to control video. If so, could you give me a few pointers? What version of the game did you use? How do you get jitter to respond to the blue tooth connection? This is for an art installation and I could build the thing from scratch using motion sensors, but it would be great to cut out some of that initial construction work.

Thank you!

Haven’t tried that one, but I was able to get a knock-off version to work using the [hi] object. If [hi] sees the hardware you’re good to go.

that might be interesting, shure.. I never used this stuff, but I used a wii ordinary controller.. from my experience with it, it was much easier to get it syncronized with OSCulator, than with aka drivers.. so why don’t you give OSCUlator a try, and see if it recognizes the device you want to connect with max, having it properly syncronized with your computer? that’s the only thing I can help you in.. good luck

Of course hi is always great stuff, but I think it only works with USB
