Video Game Shield code updated to support knock-off Nunchuck controllers
Just a quick update to let you all know that the code for the Video Game Shield has been updated to support knock-off Nunchucks! What does this mean? Well, for a long time the standard way of interfacing with the Nintendo Wii Nunchucks from an Arduino (using the I2C two-wire protocol) didn’t really work with the cheap knock-off (off-brand) Nunchucks for sale at places like Deal Extreme and Ebay. Fortunately, we recently stumbled upon some updated code that works with all Nunchucks, official as well as knock-off, so we’ve tested it out and updated the Video Game Shield code.
We are shopping around trying to find the best of the cheap knock-off Nunchucks, so look forward to us adding them to the Wayne & Layne store in the near future!
