Emulation Information

Emulating Swing

Either a bug with Dolphin's emulated Wii Remote functionality or Emulation of the game itself, Emulated Swing bindings will not function properly in game. Because you need to use these motions to command Spectrobes, and thus beat the tutorial, the game is currently unplayable without a real Wii Remote.

This is fixed by 5.0-8443 where these actions can be emulated as follows:

  • Awaken Nunchuk: Nunchuk Swing Down (50cm, 12m/s, 12m/s, 90deg) or Nunchuk Swing Right
  • Awaken Wiimote: Wiimote Swing Down (50cm, 12m/s, 12m/s, 90deg)
  • Excavation Hammer Hit: Wiimote Swing Down (50cm, 12m/s, 12m/s, 90deg)
  • 'Go' Order: Wiimote Swing Down (50cm, 12m/s, 12m/s, 90deg)
  • 'Come Back' Order: Wiimote Swing Left (50cm, 12m/s, 12m/s, 90deg)
  • Dodge Roll: Nunchuk Swing Right (50cm, 12m/s, 12m/s, 90deg)
  • Charge Special Attack: Wiimote Swing Upward + Nunchuk Swing Upward (hold down until full)
  • Release Special Attack: Release Wiimote Swing Upward + Nunchuk Swing Upward

5.0-4873 Windows 7 Intel Core i5-3570K @ 3.4 GHz NVIDIA GeForce GTX 770 Constant 60FPS, 3x IR, 2x MSAA and Hybrid Ubershaders. I configured my swing binding with sensitivity of +500 to make sure inputs would actually be detected, as recommended for other games using Swing, but no commands are registered in game. The tutorial is impossible to beat without a real Wii Remote. DjBlades
