HOW TO Wiij - A guide to getting started
Before you begin Wiijing there are things you will need in your possesion. The obvious being a Wiimote. The next obvious is a PC and finally, also obvious, PC DJing software. The not so obvious are a bluetooth dongle (if your computer doesn't have bluetooth built in) and, a program called GlovePie.
The program I use, recommend and refer to in this guide is Traktor 3. If you wish to use a program like PCDJ Red then hopefully you are familiar with any keymapping features it has. If it does have them, then you should be ok in using the Wiimotes with it. Otherwise another approach is MIDI, though I dont have any information on getting that working yet. In the future I am hoping to incorporate MIDI into another Wiimote for effects only. Being able to pick it up and mess with effects for a moment might prove to be interesting. Especially with motion sensing.
You can buy the Wiimotes, Bluetooth Dongle and PC in a store near you. Purchasing just the Wiimotes without a Wii console will still garnish the effect and use in the "Fundamental Dual Wiimote Dj Setup", though for an IR sensor bar that is promised to work will only come with a Wii system. Using two candles or a DIY sensor bar will work as well, just more steps in the equation. A sensor bar is needed ONLY to us IR functions, IR functions include moving the mouse pointer on the screen.
GlovePie can be downloaded for free by clicking here. It is constantly being updated allowing for new future additions to Wiijing. When GlovePie is first opened, it will be an empty frame with controls around it. In this frame is where someone could type code into it to control the Wiimote. There are scripts (code) that you can download around the internet. You will be able to download my "Fundamental Dual Wiimote DJ Setup" script from this site to use for yourself. Its as easy as opening a file and running the program or as customizable as writing your own ideas into it for advanced control schemes. Look in the techniques section for all the setup downloads.
When you have downloaded what you need,
you simply need to get the wiimotes connected via Bluetooth,
load up the appropriate Traktor Hotkey setup,
load the appropriate GlovePie script,
Run the Glovepie Script
Load a song in Traktor and Mix
To test to see if the Wiimotes are connected using Glovepie correctly, if Glovepie is running open Notepad and press buttons on the Wiimote. If the Glovepie is connected correctly you should see letters type on the screen on notepad....
