Those who have played some intense rounds in Wii Sports Resort’s Sword Dueling game can tell you that while the Wii MotionPlus may initially work great, a few powerful sword swings can upset the calibration. When this happens, your Mii will still mimic your movements, but from a different starting position as yourself. You may be holding the sword directly in front of you, but your Mii can be holding it to the far left.
Fortunately, Nintendo remedies this problem with the sensor bar. Whenever the Wii Remote picks up the infrared light coming from the sensor bar, it recalibrates itself. This results in the Wii Remote constantly correcting itself throughout your game.
You can also correct it yourself. In most game modes, you can hit down on the d-pad to force your Mii to re-center what he or she is holding. As long as you’re holding the Remote directly in front you as you do it, your actions should sync up and it will be working fine again.
Sensor Bar Problems
The Sensor Bar and Wii Remote operate using infrared lights. Unfortunately, other things give off infrared light as well – including the sun. This can cause interference while playing. If you are having trouble, the best solution is to limit the amount of light shining towards the televisio, from both the sun and inside sources. If this isn’t as easy as turning off a switch or closing some blinds, and you are constantly having problems, you may want to think about rearranging your setup completely.
Does the Wii MotionPlus really work?
In the end, is the MotionPlus all it’s said to be? The consensus seems to be overwhelmingly positive, with some comparing the upgrade to the difference between VHS and Blu-ray. And yes, not DVD, but Blu-Ray! That’s quite an improvement.
