WiiFlash 0.4.2 release with Balance Board Support !


We are happy to introduce this new WiiFlash Server 0.4.2 release.

So what’s new ?

This 0.4.2 release is supporting the new Balance Board.

You will find a new org.wiiflash.BalanceBoard class with some cool properties like totalKg, bottomLeftKg, bottomRightKg, topLeftKg, topRightKg or centerOfGravity.

WiiFlashServerJ should support it very soon ;)

Make sure to download the latest version, I have included a Balance Board Demo.fla in the downloadable package so that you can get started with this new Balance Board feature ;)

Note : To synchronize the Balance Board, use the exact same procedure as you would do synchronize a Wiimote. Press the “Sync” button near the batteries then browse for bluetooth devices.
The Balance Board will show up as a traditional Wiimote.

Let me know your feedbacks trough the comments.

Time for butt shaking now !

    Sadly when using the program on Vista x64, the WiiFlash Server can not see the Wiimote connected.
    I hope this will be fixed so that development on Vista can move foward.

    Hi AUser,

    Interesting, I will see what I can do as soon as possible.

    I will keep you informed here.

    Did you try on any other Windows version ? Does it work for you on XP for instance ?

    WiiFlash 0.4.2 is very cool!
    I made Google Maps Street View x Barance Board Mashup App by WiiFlash.
    Thank you !

    I tried to start the server, but the .exe simply doesn´t open. Is there any known reason for this?

    Hi Chrisse,

    Make sure you have installed the .NET runtime 3.0, if not sure if you have it installed download it here :

    let me know !

    Hi Thibault!
    Thanks for your advice! Since I installed the .NET 3.0 the 0.3 version of the WiiFlash-server works, but the newest one (0.4) doesnt open. I klick and klick and nothing happens. And when I try the examples in Flash with the WiiRemote connencted by the 0.3 version they don´t work properly. Strange …
    best wishes!

    Okay, everything is fine now. It works since I downloaded .NET 30.
    Big Thanks!

    One question: I just tested the demo included and it’s great!
    But before buying a second wii balance, could you confirm me that it’s possible to pair 2 wii balances?
    And is-it possible to develop a wiiflash program working with 2 wii balances?

    Thanks and congratulations for this amazing job!!

    I think this is great but for the life of me, I can’t seem to get the Wii Balance board to work. I am on a MacBook Pro using the Java server. I can get a wiimote to pair and connect – apps run fine. The balance board is a different story. The flash server detects it when it connects but it can’t / doesn’t get any data. Not sure what I have to do.

    Does anybody know if I need to press the red sync button everytime that I start windows, in order to connect the balance to the flash server?

    Hey, I’m having the same problem as Phil. I can connect the wiimote but am having no luck with the balance board. I’ve tested on an iMac and a macbook pro using WiiFlash 0.4.5. I’m not trying to connect multiple devices, just the balance board. Any tips?

    hello, I worked only once, all the other times he does not understand the weight and remains stuck at-307kg

    Hi Thibault Imbert ,

    I designed a shooting game which I want to play using balance board.
    Could you explain to me how I can access the topLeftKg,topTightkg, bottomLeftKg and bottomRightKg of the balance board?
