Wiiji is a free 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. Wiiji will run conveniently in your Mac's menu bar.
Here are some key features of "Wiiji":
· 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.
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.)
- Update support added.
- Changed the probe function to deal with cases where the "osculator" app has claimed the device. Now we play friendly with it.
- Fixed a bug where setting a keyboard mapping in the prefs window would jam the software into "pref setting mode" preventing the wiimote input from going into the system.

|Does exactly was it says in the tin, and does it brilliantly.
Tiny download, a painless install (that actually tells you what files and crucially WHERE the kext is!), loaded the latest MAME OSX - worked perfectly.
Wiiji running in the background takes up a very reasonable 9.65MB or RAM and uses 0.0% of my CPU when idle, jumping to 0.2-0.3 when I press buttons on my 'mote, although I should point out that it's a 2008 Mac Pro, your results may vary.
Another thing I'd like to point out is the key-mapping option, I haven't seen this simple ability since my ADB pad and Gravis Firebird from the mid-nineties, nice touch.
So far so good, thanks for the great little app :)
