wiimote on linux: wminput

While I'm here, some advertising for a couple of plugins I wrote for wminput, the wiimote driver for linux.

wminput enables to connect a wiimote to your linux pc, and map wiimote actions to mouse and keyboard events.
I wrote plugins to play FPS games with the wiimote... more fun that accurate :)

Here is the source code, and how to get started.

Typing of the python

I recently played with Python, here is my second game : Typing of the python.
The first game is a snowfight game designed for two players with wiimotes, but the graphics are too bad for publishing yet.

This one is similar to Sega's Typing of The Dead, with no graphics, just type as fast as you can.
I wrote it on linux but it should work on windows.
The zip file includes the python code (, the sounds, a french and an english word list. The game will use the french word list, but you can edit the code (line 8) to switch to the english one.
I wrote this this afternoon, so far my score is 31470.

You'll need to download python if you don't have it already.

Still alive

Hello world,
I'm still around, busy.
I hadn't updated this blog since google revamped blogger, so I spent a few minutes updating the template ... I won't have the patience to change it as thoroughly as I did with the previous one.

This was my welcome back post, now to the proper subject...
