    Default Wii MotionPlus remote issue w/ USBLoader GX

    So I recently got a hold of one of the newer Wiimotes with the MotionPlus built in. It seems to work perfectly fine for all of my homebrew (emulators mostly), however its having serious issues working at all with USBLoader GX.

    What happens is I'll have the wiimote synced and working correctly, then I'll load USBLoader through my Homebrew Channel deal. Then once its loaded the controller unsyncs itself, and it doesn't allow me to turn the wiimote back on or resync it. However, when I remove the batteries from the wiimote then put them back in, all four lights on it flash in unison, and it still doesn't bring up a cursor or anything for USBLoader.

    Anyone have any insight into this?

    UPDATE: I've figured out that it was in fact USBLoader acting up. With a bit of searching I managed to find WiiFlow, which not only worked with my MotionPlus controllers but actually loads Skyward Sword finally

    Wierd never had an issue like this with USBLoaderGX got it installed on 2 Wii's though I need to update them both

    USBLoaderGX on my setup is a fowarder channel that points to the elf file on my SD, for swyward I think I updated one of the CIOS drivers, I don't remember I done that the day after the game came out

    I do only have one WiiMote though with Motion Plus built into it, that being the gold Skyward Sword WiiMote as I actually ordered that game, but I still play it from my HDD, it's just easier than pulling the original out and prevents any damage to the disc... I guess.

    I obviously used that WiiMote from the day I got it though I do have external Motion Plus efforts aswell for my 2 other original WiiMotes

    Ah, that is weird then. I also updated a bunch of CIOS files before attempting to use USBLoaderGX a second time and it still wasn't working, so I tried the one recommended in the same video tutorial I found for the CIOS files. It apparently even has a feature to download cover art for your games straight through the Wii its very nice

    EDIT: With a bit more searching I found this; http://www.wiihacks.com/general-home...t-working.html

    It describes an issue with a newer model of the WiiMotionPlus remotes with a particular set of homebrew apps, including USBLoaderGX; I'm guessing this is the issue I was having (especially if your gold one is working, we could assume its an older model)

    USBLoderGX can download covers directly yep, even features 3D covers made from full cover images directly on the wii that have full 360 3D viewing (i.e. you can rotate and move the box anyway you want) it's a nice little touch.
