Emulation Information

Wii Balance Board

This title supports Wii Balance Board, though no emulation is provided for the Wii Balance Board. The real Wii Balance Board may be required to access some features.

  • In Bluetooth Passthrough mode, a Balance Board can be synced just like any Wii Remote, without any special configuration. Refer to the article for details.
  • Otherwise, set the Balance Board option in the Controller Configuration dialog from "None" to "Real Balance Board". Then press the red "Sync" button in the battery compartment of the balance board, and press "Refresh" if Continuous Scanning is disabled. There is no fast sync (Wii Remote 1+2) in the Balance Board, so the sync button must be used each time.

Problems

Distance Percentage Whiting Out

While changing your club distance after hitting A to view the landing zone before a swing, the indicator of how hard you would need to hit it for that spot will sometimes flicker white. To fix, enable "Safe Texture Cache", but on courses with water this will cause a severe performance bottleneck.

Configuration

Only configuration options for the best compatibility where they deviate from defaults are listed.
