gtkwhiteboard 1.3 Windows binaries (see downloads section)
By popular demand...
Note that there is still the OLE warning bug (cannot figure out how to get CLR to compile with py2exe and wxpython without that warning...) and that the capture is not as smooth as the linux version, because the Wiimote library works differently. It will require some coding to fix...

- In Windows binary form, we get an error message about OLE initialization. I couldn't get rid of it yet!
- In Windows, the capture of movement is not as smooth as Johnny Lee's version or as in Linux. I need to use the Windows WiimoteLib a different way (by letting it handle the polling)...
- Add the possibility to run custom command when clicking in one of the side zones
- Port to OS-X ?? I must first figure a way of controlling the mouse using Python...
- Port to Windows DONE !! (May 1st 2008)
- Add the possibility to save the options and the calibration. DONE !! (may 26th 2008)
My name's Stéphane Duchesneau (fuelnatchos on SourceForge) and I live in Québec, Canada.
I started the port to Linux/Python of Johnny Lee's WiiWhiteboard after seeing his videos on YouTube. If you haven't seen them yet, I think you really should!
For troubleshooting, please post your questions on the sourceforge's forums.
