Wiiji is the perfect joystick solution for Wii remotes on Mac.
With Wiiji, your Wii remotes will appear as ordinary joysticks to any application that supports joystick input. It does this through a kernel extention.
If your favorite game doesn't support joysticks, Wiiji can emulate keyboard input, too.
It runs conveniently in your menu bar.
Support Wii remote, nunchuck, and classic controller.
Use all buttons and analog joysticks.
Emulate an HID joystick interface for each connected Wii remote.
Emulate keyboard input.
Provide the source so you can modify it to your needs.
Support Mac OSX 10.5 and 10.4, Universal Binary!
Wiiji Doesn't (Yet):
Support IR input.
Support Wii remote/nunchuck rotation/translation sensors.
Emulate mouse input.
Calibrate the joysticks. (But your game probably does.)
How to use it:
Note to 10.4 users:
The Wii remote search doesn't work well in 10.4.
It helps if you go to System Preferences > Bluetooth > Devices, and delete the Nintendo RVL-CNT-01 items.
Wiiji is compatible with Osculator's "perfect-pairing." If you have that installed, it will help. Wiiji will have it's own method of perfect-pairing soon!
Unlimited number of connected Wii remotes.

Add special mouse handling code for a "paint brush" mode to be used in Photoshop. Think of other modes such as desktop, presentation, security, etc. Fork that into new project if useful. Beat Nintendo to WiiPaint.
Wiiji is developed by Taylor Veltrop (email@example.com) on a MacOS 10.5 Leopard MacBook, and a 10.4 Tiger Powerbook Pismo with G4 upgrade card and 3rd party Bluetooth.
It was tested with MAME OSX and Nestopia.
Special thanks to the Darwiin Remote team for putting the WiiRemote.Framework together.
