When I try to play 2 player Metroid and Zelda, i get to a point as the game is about to begin where it tells player one to tap the gamepad, and player two to point the remote at the screen, however, nothing happens when I point the wii remote at the screen. Has anyone else had this problem?

A couple things I can think of to try :

-Another Wii remote
-Is the sensor bar plugged in?
-Try hitting another button the remote like +, without worry about aiming at the screen.

I think you need Wii Motion Plus for those two games.

If you need the Wii Remote for any motion/IR capabilities, yes, you need the sensor bar.

Those who stand at the top determine what's wrong and what's right! This very place is neutral ground! Justice will prevail, you say? But of course it will! Whoever wins this war becomes justice!

I'd say that's your problem then. Plug in the sensor bar, and I'd say you are good to go.

eh don't worry about it. I'm sure you're not the only one who's made that mistake.

That article is misleading too.

The Wiimotes can connect to the console, but no motion or pointer will be picked up if there is no sensor bar.

Actually I think the sensor bar is simply two LED lights. The "sensor" is actually in the Wii remote itself :O

The sensor bar is just two lights. Used as a point of reference for the wiimote's "camera" on the front. Kinda like how the PS move needs the big plastic ball to work. Use a digital camera and look at a wii sensor bar that's turned on.

Lots of censorship here...
