View Full Version : Lion beta seems to fix problems under 10.6 too?

Great, great program! Interestingly the Lion beta seems to have fixed a persistent problem I've been having on my 10.6 machine. Connection to the wiimote was very intermittent, frequently dropping out even with fresh alkaline batteries. Even when I did have a connection I would often only see button signals and no pitch/roll/yaw/accel. With the Lion beta everything now seems to be rock solid. My machine: MacBook Pro1,1 running 10.6.8 and a wiimote with address 00-1a-1a-41-57-d8.

Thanks again,

Hi Matt,

Thank you for the positive feedback!
The fix for Lion is the correction of initialization steps that were made in the wrong order. I am still surprised it worked so far, but Lion seems less forgiving and made the bug more obvious, which is a Good Thing™. As you noticed, the side effect is that Wiimote connection should be even more robust on earlier systems like Leopard or Snow Leopard.
