    Projection wii

    i guess i just really need to know if i should go out and buy that epson zoombox projector for my wii. id imagine the reciever thingy could be placed in front of the screen or something along those lines but does anyone think it would work? or know if it would? it would just be pretty darn nifty to play zelda when hes about the same size as u.

    I have a projector and unless youre able to project from you ceiling, plying the wii would be pretty tough. Moving around so much would cast shadows upon the screen and throw you off. Unless they arent very active to the body games, it should be fine.

    thanx for the imput sir. ive pretty much decided that the zoombox is too cheap so id have to go the other more expensive but worth it route. as for the viewing i was thinking, if not the ceiling, then having the projector on a small table in front of the players?!? or perhaps catty-corner the projector so its out of the way. does that work at all?

    or you could probly try from over head, so there would be less chance of incidental collision from players

    Projector compatibility

    Does anyone know if the Nintendo Wii will be compatible with an LCD projector (as in, you point where u would on the wall, and the cursor will go there)?

    Yes, the writers of IGN have been playing Wii on a projector and it works, you just have to place the sensor bar above, or more likely, below the screen.

    Now, I believe Pelican is working on a sensor bar extension cord since the Wii's standard cord is pretty short. There is also a thread about a rumored Nyko-made wireless sensor bar, but that's not confirmed, although it seems logical to me.

    Hope that helped.

    Cool. I make sense every once in a while.

    *EDIT* Thought I'd merge these threads since they're on a pretty similar topic.
