    Does anyone else get a glitch in Wii Sports Bowling when there is a split? When I
    try to put a spin on the ball, it always spins the ball the opposite way of the pins so it is impossible to hit any pins on a split :cryin:

    I don't think its impossible, its simply just hard to do sometimes.
    Keep cracking at it :thumbsup:

    7-10 split is extremely difficult in real life, and Wii Sports bowling is actually fairly realistic so I would expect it to be difficult as well. Can't say I've ever picked up the spare with that situation.

    it spins the ball to the other side of the lane opposite of the pins... Its not the fact that it is hard to get a spare... its the fact that the ball is forced the opposite direction of the pins

    Argh...people trying to help...not...working.

    It is not a glitch, but a game mechanic. The ball automatically spins TOWARD the pins... How exactly are you setting it up?

    Also, is it a 7/10?

    Yes, but it is also all the other kind of splits...

    Explain OVERLY SPECIFIC how the pins are set up (numbers helpful), where you stand on the lane, where you aim, and how you twist your wrist.

    Well, for example (this one happens most often).... When um... when pins 4,7 and 10 are set up, I usually either try to spin the ball to the left hoping to hit pins 4 and 7 and having them fly over and knock over pin 10 but instead they spin and roll directly down the center of the alley, knocking down no pins. Or I just try to keep my arm straight and hit pins 4 and 7 head on but instead they do the same thing and spin over to the center of the lane, knocking down no pins... it gets frustrating when I am about to beat my record and then I get that split and cant get a spare...

    Sometimes mine will spin towards the right, but its only when I mess up. Are you sure you're not messing up?

    I'm with Brawny, it isn't a glitch, it is just a part of the way the game is played. You have to make sure to twist your wrist in the correct direction and not get so frustrated, pay attention to exactly what you do when it happens and then change it for the next one to make sure it isn't just user error. I know I've done the same thing you're talking about on accident, but splits aren't exactly easy to get anyway.

    I would suggest you try some of the bowling training exercises, the one where you throw a ball around barriers in the lane will teach how to control the spin. And you can easily turn your wrist the opposite direction in the same case and the ball will move towards the gutter.

    I don't think your describing a glitch either.

    Yer certainly not a glitch. EVERYtime I throw the ball it spins to the right...so I just turn my dude to the left to counter it. I get splits occasionally which can happen in real life, rather annoying too...

    No, I am not messing up

    Yes I know that I can turn my wrist the opposite direction but it still spins to the
    center of the lane...

    I already know that you can put spins on the ball and I can almost get a perfect score but if i get a split, i have no control over the ball... it just avoids all the pins...

    You are holding onto the ball too long.
    If you let go with your arm out in front of you the spin will have almost no effect on the ball's trajectory.
    During your swing, let go when you have the Wii controller pointing at the floor.

    Also, the whole trick to getting a decent curve on the ball is finding the right balance between spin and power. If you throw the ball super hard, you probably won't be able to get enough spin on it for a good curve.

    All that being said, I have picked up several 7-10 splits in Wii Bowling. I'm right handed and here's what I do:

    1. Move ALL the way to the left of the lane.
    2. Nudge slightly to the right, (by nudge, I mean half a step).
    3. Throw the ball hard with NO spin on it.
    4. It will run the edge of the lane and look like it is going to fall off into the gutter.
    5. If you lined up right, the 7 pin will bounce off the back wall and come back into the pin area to take out the 10.

    Good luck.

    anyone has heard about that glitch in the training when you have to hit all pins which increases in numbers. I've heard that if you throw the ball on the rail in the 91, something will make all the pins go down all at once. never once done it. tried a lot and when you miss, you gotta go all the way to the beginning so if anyone done it, please tell me

    About the 91 pin thing.
    Move your character about 3/4 to the right, and then turn it to the right so it's ppretty much lined up with the rail. Then bowl as usual, but let go of the ball later than usual. If you get it right, the ball will roll all the way along the rail, then at the end an explosion goes off knocking all the pins....weird but it CAN work.
