I've had a trawl through the troubleshooting posts for Wii-Mote problems and while the problem I've got has come up elsewhere it's not been definitively answered so I'm going to call out for help as it's driving me mad.
Problem: Playing tennis with friendds and one dilbert hit me with the wii-mote going for a forehand smash . It wasn't very hard at all and initially there was no problem with the remote. However after starting a new game the remote did not register swings - and the speaker didn't make any noise when you swung it (the swoosh sounds of your racket).
I have tried everything you woul normally do - taken batteries out, turned console off at mains, re-synced both controllers etc.
What is odd is that it works in menus as a pointer - so I don't get whats wrong. I don't know how it works inside (is there a gyro or something that could be broken?) but if anyone does could they help?
Also odd is that i tried to use it for sonic and it didn't work in that either. Plot thickens. In the meantime my friend is banned until he can show more Wii-spect.
Any help much appreciated
