    so did you try to raise the sensitivity of the remote from 3 to a higher number?
    this could solve the leaning forward...

    Being totally new here and to Wii reading this does explain a bunch to me.
    I was wondering if you can use 2 bars, the wired one and a wireless one? TIA

    This is actually a good question and can pose a solution for redrobb.

    Yes, you can use two sensor bars (they are just light, there is no information fed back from the bars to the system). However, you will want to tape over the arrays in the centre, and only use the two most outlying arrays. The camera is only looking for two points of light, so if you leave the two centre arrays uncovered, it will get confused and the tracking will not work very well at all. But to get a wider sensor bar so you can play at a greater distance from the screen, that set-up may work well.

    This is a great tip, I had no idea this worked! (though it makes perfect sense)

    It should work. You might have to play around to find the best distance between the two ends for a given distance. I think if you look at the home made lights I linked in a post above, that guy had a spreadsheet calculator to determine optimal distance between the ends for a given distance from the screen.

    Gidget. Tried your idea of raising the sensitivity from 3 to 4. Seems to work. Now playing mario galaxy without leaning forward. You're one of the most helpful people on here. Thank You.
