In Windows, the Wii Remote Plus requires the use of the Toshiba Bluetooth Stack or the DolphinBar. For more information regarding this issue, you may refer to http://www.smoothboard.net/wiiremoteplus/

Some Smoothboard users have difficulties installing the Toshiba Bluetooth Stack and thus I have made a tool to simplify the process.

If you have difficulties installing the Toshiba Bluetooth Stack for your device, this tool may work for you. If you have any issues with the tool, you may post a comment here.

The Bluetooth Stack Tool automates some of the steps required to force the Toshiba drivers to be used for your Bluetooth adapter.

The following steps are automated:

  1. Identify your Bluetooth Adapter’s hardware ID.
  2. Insert the entries into C:\Program Files (x86)\Toshiba\Bluetooth Toshiba Stack\Drivers\tosrfusb\tosrfusb.inf.
  3. Update the registry to pretend to be a Toshiba Bluetooth Stack compatible adapter.

I am proud to announce that after half a year of development, Smoothboard 1.0 is now released.

I have also developed Smoothboard.net to be the dedicated website for Smoothboard.

 Smoothboard 1.0 comes in an installer for you to quickly set up the software on your computer.

For more information, go to Smoothboard.net.

Ben has also made a wiki for the wiimote whiteboard and Smoothboard at http://www.boonjin.com/smoothboard.

Thank you for all your support for the past months!

Update: I have released Smoothboard on a new website, Smoothboard.net.

I have managed to set up the Wiimote Whiteboard system just a few days ago. One of the major difficulties that I have encountered is the lack of the right click feature. One of the ways to simulate a right click is through having two infrared diodes. However, this will require some modification to the IR pen and also to the Johnny Lee’s software.

Therefore, I have made a simple application that will help Wiimote Whiteboard users to right click. This application, allows you to switch the normal clicks into right clicks. This is done by intercepting the left click event and replacing it with a simulated right click event.

After executing the application, drag or resize the window to suit your usage. When you need to right click, just click within the window, toggle area or the status bar (except the settings button). The subsequent click you make will be a right click. After that, the next clicks will be the normal left clicks.

The window position and the other settings are saved in an INI file located in the same folder with the executable.

I have not tested this application in detail so most probably there will be some unknown bugs. Please feel free to post a comment here if you find any problems with the application.

If you will also like me to add more features to this application, please also tell me. For example, double clicking using an infrared pen is not easy. I might include a double click feature in the future.

Update: I have made a new version of the Wiimote Whiteboard,Smoothboard.net.

It has many new features including the built-in right clicking function. It should work in PowerPoint 2003/2007 and in OneNote 2007. Therefore, development for Right-Clicker is now superseded by the Wiimote Smooth Board.

Update: I have released Smoothboard on a new website, Smoothboard.net.

Note: If your computer could not run this application, you have to install the VB6 runtime files that can be downloaded from here: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=7B9BA261-7A9C-43E7-9117-F673077FFB3C&displaylang=en
