From SuperTuxKart 0.8.1 we have support for Nintendo Wii-controllers called Wiimotes. One current limitation is that we do not yet have support for newer Wiimotes with the text "Wii MotionPlus INSIDE" on them. If you have one of those controllers, you will unfortunately not get it to work with STK. Controllers with a separate MotionPlus nunchuck added should work as far as we are aware.

Some MotionPlus-Wiimotes will work, but the "RVL-CNT-01-TR" won't work!

Linux

  1. Be sure that 'bluez' is installed and enabled.
  2. Open up STK.
  3. Open up the dialog and press 1 and 2 buttons on your Wiimote at the same time.
  4. Click the OK button on your computer.
  5. Wait for the Wiimote to connect and click OK if there is a dialog "Found X wiimote(s)"
  6. If it shows up "Could not detect any wiimote :/" click "OK" and try it again!
