I’ve downloaded all of the new apps that support the new Lion on a Mac. However, I’m still getting the black screen after calibrating the board. Any ideas? Any other programs to try?
I’m a classroom teacher and have used this for years, but no it’s failing and I’d love to fix.
To everyone (particularly the developer) who worked on this software: Thank you. I haven’t used it yet but am going to start now. My questions are, for a first time user: A. Does it work “out of the box” with 10.8.5 and B. Do any versions of the Wii Mote cause problems. Thanks for your time
Hi, I was searching info about the wimote whiteboard upgrade and I found this group https://groups.google.com/forum/#!msg/bluecove-users/7jWv1V1GC-4/EpPs5XExpBEJ.
I was reading info and saw this: https://groups.google.com/d/msg/bluecove-users/7jWv1V1GC-4/m3oGFQrRKBMJ
The post talk about a compilation, and i decide download the bluecove-2.1.1-SNAPSHOT.jar in raw from https://github.com/ixd-hof/Processing/tree/master/Examples/Input/Wiimote_BalanceBoard/code
Terrific results! I just completed a test drive with your wii-mote whiteboard software version (10dot8_and_later.dmg) on my MacBook Pro running MacOSX 10.9 Mavericks. It connected successfully (wii mote sync) and I was able to calibrate the screen with an IR Pen. Ran a couple of applications (Paintbrush 2.1.1, Safari)…all worked with success!
A couple of small challenges as the built in Bluetooth scanner competes with the Wii-Mote Whiteboard software to sync with the wii-mote. Had to cancel a few pairing requests from the MacOSX . Had to turn my Bluetooth off and on to bypass this issue. As well, it take a few “red button” presses (inside battery compartment sync switch) before the sync took place.
Kudos to you Uwe for taking the time to troubleshoot the MacOSX Bluetooth compatibility issue.

Thank you Uwe for your work. I tested it on 10.8 and it worked. I do get a system dialog box asking to Pair the wiimote with a passkey, but if I leave it blank and press buttons 1+2 it WW usually autopairs on the second try.
I do have a question about the TUIO messages. I see active is one message and then the message that looks like the screen coordinates. I see three (are these Width, Height, and Z(distance from screen). If this is documented somewhere please let me know, I couldn’t find it.
YES!! Took me a little while to get it up and running. I didn’t realize that I had to have Bluetooth on, but not discoverable. Also, it does seem to take 2 tries each time for it to open. (Get “Failed” message on first try, clicked message shut, tried again, and presto! This happens every time I open the app.)
Also, I found that for some reason the Move and Click option was not enabled and I therefore couldn’t complete calibration. Working from past memory, I knew I had to have that ability in order for it to complete calibration, but for some reason I wasn’t able to select it to enable it. I went in to the Wiimote’s preferences and selected every box… don’t know if I really needed to do all of them… but once I did, everything worked great!
Thanks again, Uwe (And thank you too, Carlos!)
