    try it with it on the bottom or the top, whichever one you dont have. but make sure you change the settings in the Wii's configuration.

    then you have to adjust the distance from it. note, the sensor bar only detects where you point the wiimote, not the actual motion sensing. if all else fails, i heard you can use two candles as a sensor bar, seeing as the sensor bar is only 2 LED lights for the wiimote to detect.

    It works better (IMO) under the TV then above. Better yet, if your TV rests on a table, push it back so you can also set the sensor bar there, that way you can basically point at the TV where you actually want it to go. :)

    No, I don't think you can adjust the flength (far-away length :p ) distance of the wiimote. The only thing you should be doing to get the bast response of your remote is to stay 3 - 8ft away from your TV. The things you can adjust, however, is the volume and sensitivity of the cursor (or at least that's all I know how to do).

    Did that answer your question?

    I want to make this clear to everyone why I gave DBZ a higher rating.

    IT'S BECAUSE I HAVEN'T GOTTEN FAR ENOUGH INTO THE GAME!!! There's tons of combos, characters, etc. in DBZ, and in zelda i'm only at the 2nd light spirit (and it has been easy as hell getting there too...). I'm gonna change it to a 10, because it's fun, but still I like DBZ, CoD3, and Wii Sports better right now.:frown2:

    seriously a person giving almost every game top sco

    seriously a person giving almost every game top scores, is a retard, this way they don't COMPARE every game is as good as it could POSSIBLY get, in your point of view NOTHING could be made better with these games, also, it's not very "punk rock" to be part of a bulletin board supporting multinational corporation, or even having an internet connection, furthermore, you're saying elebits is a bad game? one of the only games out there actually thinking about the wiimote in it's full, is a bad game? and why? bacause it looks like a kids game, uuuuuuh, it's like soooooooooooooooo not punk rock like , DUH!!1

    Both of you suck my left nut, and if you keep bitching like women on their periods, I'll splat my children on your face.

    Says the kid who calls himself "ssbb_lover" and has probably the dumbest signature I have seen.

    And Elebits is far far greater than dbz.

    now, probably the last, and only last bit of actual helpfull information,

    In the Wii box (you probably missed this) is like a thing long clear bar, your actually ment to place the sensor on this, it gives a more clear view of the sensor bar for the Wiimote.

    what a thread!

    Just had to comment because that has got be the most random thread ever. I find it hilarious that you can base an opinion on just screennames and signatures. Lol. Besides, very few of you attempted to answer the question or even made any sence. I think someone spelt 'We're' (as in 'we are') as 'where'. ANYWAY, i would simply adjust the sensitivity to 'low'. I think you can do this by pressing the menu button on the controller and going to the link at the bottom of the page (same place you do your controller volume etc.) Good luck with trying to solve your problem when answers include 'Ill splat my children in your face'.

    I'm fairly sure also that having a punkrock banner in your signature isn't punkrock.

    But having internet just might be. How else can you cause global chaos?
