Howdy - just a quick one for anyone else that decides they want to 'upgrade' from jumper cables and dont have/can't wait for WiiChuck adapters.

I've written a quick blog post on how I made a combined Nunchuck/MotionPlus cable that was more secure than the jumpers I had been using with some vero-board scrap I had and a conductive pen.

I know its not really anything much - just some dremeling and soldering and making the board double-sided, but it might give some other people some ideas..

Check it out at http://slida.canberrariders.org.au/2009/08/08/diy-wii-motionplus-nunchuck-adapter/ and let me know if its either helpful or has gross errors.

very cool, Ill have to check if my pc board is similar in size. Im planning on dremeling down a spare firewire connector or two to make a good solid connector for mine. Ive heard they work perfectly, but never seen a good picture of it. Just one of many things to try once I get into my new apartment. Btw, where did you get the circuitwriter pen? I used to see them at radioshack but they are long since gone now. I heard amazon has them but would rather buy from a store so if its dried up, I can return it.

Hmm - I'll have to try the F/Wire connector...

Re the CircuitWriter Pen: I got mine from the local (Australian) RadioShack equivalent - JayCar Electronics
*BUT* It is made in the USA - Its CAIG Labratories brand, which is at http://www.caig.com but the specific product family seems to live at http://www.deoxit.com . Maybe just send them an email ?
JayCar sell online too, and the two or three I've bought from there have always been fine - so you could just order it online anyway...

EDIT: The US Details for CAIGis:
CAIG Laboratories (Poway, CA), (800) CAIG-123, info@caig.com

I see you built your own, but instead of the WiiChuck Adapter, for about the same price you can modify an Extension Cable for Wii Nunchuck:


Makes for a clean connection.

Thats not a bad suggestion - but I wanted one cable with two heads (One for Nunchuck, one for MotionPlus) and that would involve hacking up two cables... making it all up about a $15 cable delivered (more here in Australia) ...  ;)

My nasty messy hack didn't cost me anything besides what was in my draw  :)
