    It depends on the size of your TV, the distance you are from the TV, and your sensor bar position.

    Think of the Wii remote as a computer mouse rather than an old style light gun. You move it to the right and the cursor on the screen moves to the right, etc. It's unlikely you'll ever get the cursor to be precisely where you are pointing the remote.

    Theoretically, disregarding the position and the length of the sensor bar, the aiming position of the WiiMote and the onscreen cursor can be calibrated in the program.
    Definitely visit that link kainan. That's exactly the kind of info you want.

    I guess there may be a game with that feature when the Zapper is released.
    Now that you mention it, the girl playing in the E3 demo was closing one eye and looking down the barrel of the Zapper. It looked retarded, and I couldn't figure out what she was doing. If "Zapper support" included in-game calibration, suddenly that would make more sense.

    Lasers were not used in the old style light gun games. There was sensor in the end of the gun that received light from the TV.

    And those light guns only work on CRT type TVs, which are quickly being replaced by LCD, Plasma, etc.

    Calibration still wouldn't allow for games without a cursor. Because you would have to recalibrate it every time you moved closer or farther away.

    Ahhh.. Good points.
    Skippy -
    Yeah, CRTs have been on the way out for a while. I didn't realize it had to have CRT projection. I wonder if there are any companies looking into how to make aiming work with modern TVs. I've had an LCOS TV for a while.. would have been out of luck anyway it sounds...

    Paintballer-
    True about the calibration but certainly it would be a good tool to get your aim closer for normal use. You could always go back through the calibration mode and play from around the same distance. This would beat the problem I'm having where I'm having to point a foot lower than where the cursor shows up.

    Thanks for the info wiinter. Not sure if I will want to rig up a long string of LEDs though. Not to sound picky but to have a long piece of constructed leds sitting on top of a TV that cost enough to put me in the dog house doesn't seem like a solution I'm hoping for. If this really works then surely a third party company will have a longer and stronger sensor bar soon. I don't know if any of you owned Xboxes but I can remember playing with the limitation of the freaking controller cable forever as I waited for a third party ro realize that some people had TVs bigger than 32" and didn't want to sit right up against it. What a pain that was. Oh well, I'm going to try the bar on top of the tv. I crammed it in betweenthe center channel and the tv this morning. Maybe it will help. If not then I guess I'll deal with it and enjoy the wii controller for all the great things it does have and not dwell on this one complaint. THANKS guys!

    Tested with the bar at the top of the TV and it is a better. It still isn't how I want it but I've adjusted. As some have said, it is still good for shooting games that show the target circle on the screen. If I had to play a gun game that didn't show where I was shooting then I'm afraid I would be toast for sure. Anyway, I'm betting that Nintendo will release an upgrade that allows you to calibrate for the TV size. I'm still unsure why it seems better at the top of the TV rather than the bottom when I set the sensor position properly on the Wii for both places. Oh well.. I'm still enjoying tennis and other sports games. It would be awesome to play tennis this way online. I would get a real workout!

    The infrared detection works best when the IR LEDs are pointing directly at the WiiMote. If the top of TV position is closer to your hand level, it would work better. Nevertheless, most people would have the WiiMote tilted slightly upward while holding it.

    Hmm.. actually for meand my kids I think putting the bar on top of the TV makes it further away but it does make sense about the wiimotes pointing up a little in our natural way we would hold them. My TV stand is about 20" or so high and then the TV is 55" with the addition of the speakers being at the bottom of the TV so that really puts the sensor further away at the top of the TV unless it is an adult. I'm in a wheelchair so even though I'm 5'8" I might as well be 4'8"
    One thing I did notice that I didn't like is the #1 remote is a lot more jumpy towards the top or bottom of the screen after I moved the bar. In general it is better, just not at the very top and very bottom.

    The Wii remote has to be the most accurate console out there. ( Well besides the DS )

    Stop complaining. You messed something up.
