    Starting a game with the Wii Remote?

    Does anyone know if there is a way to start a game with the Wii Remote instead of launching it from the Gamepad? The reason I'm asking is because if I have a Wii game in, I can turn the Wii U on with a Wii Remote, but I don't want to have to get up and get the Gamepad to start a game that isn't even going to use it. But I can't find any way to launch a game with the Wii Remote.

    The answer is Yes.

    Step 1) Turn on with Wii Remote
    Step 2) Ensure your Wii Remote is connected to the Wii U
    Step 3) Select your profile using the Wii Remote pointer
    Step 4) Look on the bottom right of screen and you will see an icon that looks like a TV with an arrow to the Gamepad and press it with the Wii Remote pointer
    Step 5) Select Wii Mode using the Wii Remote pointer
    Step 6) Should be familiar at this point

    Cool. Thanks. I've noticed that icon, but I was afraid to try it because it looks like it's meant to switch the display to Gamepad only. I'm glad there's a way to do it.

    Now I have to figure out how to get Skyward Sword working again. I got to where you're going in to fight the boss on the Lanayru Mines section, and it couldn't read the disc anymore. I think it's scratched. Sucks!

    That blows! It's good to see another fellow gamer who is in the middle of Skyward Sword as well. Have you beaten it yet? This is my first time through. Great game so far.

    Nope. It's my first time. I'm pretty bummed about it messing up. I'm going to either have to try to fix the scratch or buy it again.

    I could be 100% wrong, but I believe Woody has stated in the past that he only somewhat recently began to play on PC. I think he said something about being Nintendo only before that.

    Lol. Guys, this was one week after the Wii U was released. We were all still trying to figure out the user interface.

    I built my PC in early 2015 (I think). From the launch of the Wii U until then, the Wii U was my only means of playing games, and it was gaming hell. The games were coming at a trickle, and I didn't like most of them. Before that, we played the 360. But the reason I sound like a veteran is because I was exclusively a PC gamer from like 1995 until the Wii came out, and I gamed on a C64 before that. I just went that gap without a PC until I could afford to build one.

    I didn't know you ever had a 360. By the way, I wasn't making fun of your thread, just in case you thought that. I was just bored and started finding the first threads some of you guys created. Can you believe this was 5 years ago?!

    We need to put a velvet rope around this thread and preserve it for posterity - NOT go trampling all over it...
