WiiU Noob question here...I have been waiting for the new WiiU and am blown away by the gameplay and graphics but i have one Major problem with my wiimote and chuck..I can't get them to work properly....its all over the screen..I've played the wii for years and have never experienced issues like this..I've tried all six of my remotes and can't get any of them to work properly...I've gone through the "pointer sensitivity" several times..maybe i'm doing it wrong i don't know hence why i'm asking for help. Any tips...I'm trying to play blackops 2 ..my daughters played the dance game on it and it didn't seem to give them a problem at all..but on blackops 2 i can't get the thing to have any kind of flow..just jumps all around and spinning. Please help thanks

That happened to me at first too. Funnily, it turned out that the only problem was that I didn't plug in the sensor bar correctly. Have you tried unplugging and plugging back in the sensor bar?

Why do people point to their wrists when asking for the time, but don't point to their crotch when they ask where the bathroom is?

My facecam on Nintendoland won't work. It just shows a still picture and doesn't like, move if you know what I mean. Has anyone had this problem?

@GamecubeMan don't fall into the trap of not differentiating n00b from newb.
Newbs need help.
n00bs are game trolls who spam/exploit and are generally beyond help...

Otherwise good thread...

Thank You very much..Thats exactly what it was..The console it self was trying to be the sensor bar cause it wasn't plugged in all the way..again MANY Thanks.

I'm the only one making this thread effective ;) It would have quickly sunk to the bottom of the pile if I wasn't around.

Totally agree with this. But that wouldn't really help since for some reason people dont look for threads on this site, they just make one without looking first. Look when this thread was created and now look how many question threads have been made.

Yeah we know because I already pointed that out to the OP at the start of the thread ;)

Now can we get back to the questions please.

If people used a sole thread like this, there wouldn't even be all those other 'specific' questions being asked every hour or so. Haha. There's probably been 10 seperate threads for Wii to Wii U transfer, audio/headsets, and 'what should I get?'. There really only should be a thread for questions, ideas(complaints/shortcomings/improvement), each game, etc., but instead there's 10-20 total for each... You really can't blame the people who do look first, but can't find it. I've done that before.

Haha, no. There would be a thread for each game specifically, a Wii U questions thread, an idea thread, recommendations. That's it. There would be only around 20 seperate threads for Wii U if everyone stopped making a repetitive thread. Maybe Nintendo Life should stop letting people make new threads, and deal w/ the ones we have already. It's not like any Wii U questions would be out of place in the Wii U questions thread. Haha...

Jeez, glad you're not a mod here. You'd be ruling this place with an iron fist.

Haha. Well, if they just had the minimum amount of threads already set it stone, we wouldn't have 100s of 'unfindable' or 'irrelevant' ones, vs. 20.

Hey guys,

Tried using headphones with my gamepad for the first time last night, noticed that they didn't work, and sound was still coming from the gamepad's speakers. These headphones work with any other headphones input, and I also tried a few other pairs..

Is this problem common? Anyone else been experiencing it?

@Seancy hey mate first I need to gather some info that might help me help you ;)

Does this problem occur on the main HOME screen?

have you tried using youtube in the web browser to check your headphones?

What games are you using headphones for?

I know mine work perfectly fine... Maybe the headphone jack in the gamepad is faulty bro.
