OSCulator is not for free, when you need it to function without interruption. It costs a minimum of $19 to obtain a license, which stops the app from interrupting transmit wii data intermediately, in favor of displaying a reminder screen for about 20 seconds. Nevertheless the app flawlessly reconnects to the wii after that, Max patch operation also resumes without trouble after that.
Download the wii remote framework from the same site as darwin.
I found that the wii being on or another computer can cause some problems in the wii finding the computer. Also, the red sync button is a lot more accurate from what I can tell, than pressing 1 and 2. Let me know if you get it.
also, make sure you have some kind of light source (as well as the ir $ checked on)
I tried with a candle, then four candles, and got a pretty good signal, i’m thinking that a battery operated wii sensor bar will do the trick…
