Hi, my name is Michael Chernoff, I'm from Toronto
I have 2 questions regarding the use of the Wii & Nunchuck together:
a) Is it common that a game player needs to press 3 or 4 buttons simultaneously (buttons A,B,C,Z)? If so, which games, which situations?
b) Is there a button combo that is rarely if never used in games (ex: people have to hold down A & B all the time, but are they ever required to hold down B & Z)? What 2-button combo could you give up.
I am asking these questions for the following reasons:
I recently hosted a Wii modding event called "Wii Don't Need Fingers" on Dec 16th 2007 where we were trying to figure out how to modify a Nintendo Wii controller and nunchuck for a client of mine (I volunteer with Tetra) who is a quadraplegic with functional arm movements, but no working fingers (he can't use feet to press buttons and it's not advisable to use his head for button pressing movements that have to be done 70x a minute). We tested the games "Wii Sports" & "Naruto, Rise of the ninja" (or was it clash of the ninja), but I didn't check what button combo's were absolutely necessary.
For the buttons A,B,C,Z I have a control scheme that lets him press on those buttons with his wrist. The client can even hold down 2 buttons at a time, but there will always be a single button pair that cannot be pressed, because the client can only use wrist movements to press the buttons. I'd love to hear reliable input on this subject, because I don't own a Wii myself, and my current TV is not compatible with a Wii system.
