I just wanted to take a second to compliment your work. I was trying to do something like this for a bit, but my weight formula was off by as much as 30 pounds sometimes xD. Anyways, I love what you've done here and I can't wait to see the source released as I'm sure it will benefit many developers (I'm a huge fan of balance board implementation BTW). And kudos for using libwiisprite ;)--Arikado 23:42, 3 May 2009 (UTC)

Thank you. I appreciate this very much, I've included the source today for other developers to be assisted. I can't figure how to calibrate the balance board... it always comes out different. elisherer 13:07, 4 May 2009 (GMT+2) —Preceding undated comment added 10:07, 4 May 2009 (UTC).


First of all, nice job! I really like this demo with the Balance Board. It would be nice to swap between Pound and Kg by pressing a button on the Weight screen. It could be great to add an offset (+/-) to adjust the weight in case the board is not that accurate. --Crayon 01:34, 6 May 2009 (UTC)

Wll it's all very good, I'll be sure to add an offset option with (-) and (+) to move the bar left and right. But about the pounds Im not very familiar with the pounds measurments because we use the metric system. maybe someone would make a pounds ruler PNG file and send it to me.--Elisherer 05:05, 6 May 2009 (UTC)
i think it would be easier to just compute the pounds based on the conversion rate, 1 kilogram = 2.20462262 pounds (thanks, google), and then move the ruler accordinglyyossi 07:28, 6 May 2009 (UTC)
It's a good idea, I'll give it a try...--Elisherer 07:48, 6 May 2009 (UTC)
I've added all the features above but i have a problem with the ruler.png the max width of a picture is 1024 pixels and to get Lbs its supposed to go all the way to 310 and the ruler goes to 150. so if anybody has a solution it will be welcome...--Elisherer 14:31, 6 May 2009 (UTC)
Why even have a "ruler" with the weight. While analog displays are cool, but digital accuracy is so nice. How bout a choice? I honestly would much rather see a digital readout of my weight vs an analog scale. Dewdude 17:32, 7 May 2009 (UTC)

Great utility! One problem though - the weight ruller view is to small! On my 28" tv it's hardly readable. Bigger display would be helpful for people with smaler/ older tvs or sight disabilities. It would also be great to have a channel or channel forwarder for this, but that's other subject. good work Elisherer. wiistula —Preceding unsigned comment added by Wiistula (talkcontribs) 09:15, 6 May 2009


Try the prereleases here and say whats on your mind... —Preceding unsigned comment added by Elisherer (talkcontribs) 14:38, 6 May 2009 (UTC)

Board unbalanced?


when I start the app, both weight and gravity are not zero/centered. The weight is below zero and the gravity is moved from the center to the top/left (still within the yellow circle). I wonder is this normal, or is my board broken? I always wondered if it worked right, but as nintendo-soft never showed the "empty state" there was no way to check. Only "check board"-buttons and they always report "fully functional". Now this difference makes me worry...
