wii orientation value

January 9, 2008 | 6:52 pm

Hi list,
I have mounted a wii on my guitar, and I’m using the acceleration, orientation, and button values to modify a variety of effects. For my purposes, I would love to do more with the orientation values. Right now, the aka.wiiremote object I’m using only outputs 0,1,2, or 3 as orientation values. Does anyone know how to get the intermediate values? I’d love for max to recognize when my wii is at 90, 80, 70, 60 degrees, and so on.
Thanks so much for your help!
-Rob

You’d have to look at the accelerometer values. One of them will alter based
on oritentation (under the influence of gravity).
Another option is using IR pointer data. I believe that can give you better
orientation data.

I’m just surprised that i could fit my 360 through my front door! i mean
geez ! this thing is a monstrosity. the adapter alone makes me feel the
cancer growing behind my eyes. and you have to turn your tv up to 10 just to
overcome the noise this thing makes.

off subject? yes. sorry ;)
