      Hello,

      Unfortunately Ventura does not fix the problem. I will fill à développer support ticket once again hoping they will do something.

      Given that the vast majority of Bluetooth hardware today uses Bluetooth 5.0, I doubt they will prioritize the resolution of this bug.

      Best,

        The dreaded reply, been waiting for this, so i guess the way to go foward is to go back in OSX's versions until? (to get it to work)

          I now have Catalina on the unit, and it works, question is, can upgrade to Big Sur? Or should I just say here?
          Hope they resolve it, they sure do have the resources!

            Hi Johannes,

            Yes Big Sur is the last macOS version that has a Bluetooth stack working with the Wiimote.

              I filled a TSI (technical support incident) to Apple, with the hope they will provide a more definite answer.

                Hope they get back to you! In the meantime, any plans for Joycon support? Seems like those are pretty easily connectable to Macs running Monterey and Ventura. I was able to connect a Joycon to my M2 Mac running Monterey and get button press data via Max/MSP, but wasn't able to get any accelerometer data. I'm thinking about updating to Ventura to see if Ventura's fancy new game controller support prompts the Joycon to send accelerometer data (which they won't do unprompted, apparently: https://cycling74.com/projects/joy-con-osc-mapper-beta https://cycling74.com/forums/nintend...oth-connection).

                  Hi,

                  This is what I experienced when testing Joycons.
                  Unfortunately, I have no clue how to get accelerometer data.
                  The post you mentioned refers to a reverse engineering project (https://github.com/dekuNukem/Nintend...se_Engineering), quite fascinating. I'll check it out!

                    Still on the hunt for a solution, when i found this!

                    Seems like plenty of peers has paired Wii-remotes using a bluetooth-dongle, could this work perhaps?
