  • I would just like to point out how unfortunately named this application is. --Nathew 03:40, 22 September 2008 (UTC)

Lol, I took brick breaker, made it a compound word, and then replaced brick with Wii. You come up with a better name!--Arikado 19:14, 22 September 2008 (UTC)

  • How about "WiiBlocks"? --Hideous 14:25, 23 September 2008 (UTC)

Meh - sounds "lego-ey".--Arikado 19:00, 23 September 2008 (UTC)

Wii Balance Board

The old version (0.3) is quite impossible to play with the Balance board since the ball moves way too fast compared to the paddle. --Wiibrewfan4 00:00 22 January 2009 (UTC)

I'll look into it. (I had never had a problem with it though) Remember: The more weight you put on one side of the board, the faster the paddle moves in that direction.--Arikado 22:57, 23 January 2009 (UTC)

How do you sync the balance board with version 0.5? --Wiibrewfan4 00:00 08 February 2009 (UTC)

Same way you did with previous versions of the game. just hit the button on the bottom of the balace board and it will sync right away. If you're still having problems, you could try the orange button underneath the board's battery cover.--Arikado 15:25, 8 February 2009 (UTC)


Hey Arikado, Can you post the source code to Wiibreaker? I'd like to understand how the Wii Balance Board support works so I can use it in my homebrew. --PaceMaker 20:46, 10 March 2009 (UTC)

Hi PaceMaker. If you're interested in the source please contact me privately (IRC, E-mail, the forums, etc.). However, you may be interested to know that I've been working on a balance board programming tutorial for WiiBrew (for a really long time too lol). I should probably just start posting what I have on WiiBrew and fill it in a little day by day.--Arikado 18:01, 11 March 2009 (UTC)

Cannot Sync The Balance Board

I cannot sync the balance board with neither of the methods mentioned above. With the power button depressed it only blinks 3-4 times and goes off. With the sync button under the battery cover depressed it blinks longer. Then I press the sync button on the Wii box, to no avail. My firmware is V3.4 (PAL). It syncs OK with Wii Fit. I installed the homebrew a couple of days ago. No probs with other applications. P.S. Does it matter if I sync before or after selecting the balance board as the controller? Many Thanks, Zed

Hi Zed. I'm aware of the many syncing problems people are having right now. The best working solution appears to be hitting the orange button next to your Wiis SD slot and then pressing the orange button underneath your balance boards battery cover. Everyone else who reported sysncing problems fixed their problems by doing this. Thaank you for downloading WiiBreaker, and I hope this turns out well for you.--Arikado 19:54, 25 February 2009 (UTC)
