Video Game Shield code updated to support knock-off Nunchuck controllers

by Layne on August 18, 2012

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.

The new code can be found on our download page as well as the Video Game Shield repository at GitHub.

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!
