This title requires the Wii MotionPlus add-on

Confused by "This title requires the Wii MotionPlus add-on", isn't that no longer the case since MotionPlus is now emulated? I presume some titles may still not work well with the the MotionPlus emulation, but that should probably be handled alternately. Kolano (talk) 09:05, 3 May 2019 (CEST)

The titles that use this template require either an emulated MotionPlus or a real MotionPlus. What I mean by that is that if you use an emulated Wii Remote and turn off the "Attach MotionPlus" setting, or use a real Wii Remote with no MotionPlus plugged in, the game will not work. Maybe the "add-on" wording could use some clarification? Because while you do need MotionPlus, you don't need the physical add-on anymore. JosJuice (talk) 21:41, 3 May 2019 (CEST)
OK, yeah, could probably use some rewording. The current phrasing makes it seem like MotionPlus hardware is still required to me. Perhaps "This title requires Wii MotionPlus functionality." Kolano (talk) 23:11, 3 May 2019 (CEST)
Yes, it should be reworded. Also while we're at it, I want to remove the paragraph about Wii Remote Plus connection guide from there, it should be handed off to Dolphin setup guide like other controllers. Lucario (talk) 01:45, 4 May 2019 (CEST)
Both of those suggestions sound good to me. JosJuice (talk) 14:59, 4 May 2019 (CEST)

Non-Required Titles

Could there be a variant of this for games that can use Motion+ but don't require it? Thinking of games like GoVacation. JMC4789 (talk) 13:43, 12 January 2017 (CET)

Should be possible. We've tried to avoid them for most Problem templates, but perhaps we want to just use a variable to distinguish the subtlety different needed text in one template. Kolano (talk) 01:12, 13 January 2017 (CET)

Um... A problem template is not the right way to go about it... This problem exists because there is a hard barrier for entry that Dolphin cannot emulate - motion plus. It is vital to inform users of that with a problem tempalte! But if it is possible but not required, how is that a problem?. Users can still emulate it fine. Imo, this should be a note in the description, or a "motion plus optional" category. That would be less overt and still accessible. - MayImilae (talk) 12:09, 13 January 2017 (CET)

We need an "Emulation Info" shared issue template to handle these. Kolano (talk) 06:32, 3 March 2018 (CET)
