I'm not likely to add a forwarder on my own, but there's a WAD maker called "CustomizeMii" that has a plugin called "FowardMii" that can make them.  I just don't want to brick my Wii trying to make it.

As for search, man, I didn't even know they added that!  You just need to define buttons for the "Search" and "Next" actions and it will work just fine, using joystick input for the letters.

Here's my choice on the button.  This will go into your content/menu.key file.  You can also put it into config/override.cfg


search.2 = STRING:joystick 0 button 6
next.2 = STRING:joystick 0 button 6

If you do that, and are using Wiimote #1 (without the classic controller) then Pressing "Home" will bring up the search, and pressing "Home" subsequent times will act like tab, moving from cluster to cluster, or system to system.  The d-pad or nunchuck will be used to enter letters, just like the old days if you played it on PC using a joystick! 

Same idea if you're using a different controller, just pick a button/buttons, and put it in there.  Just make sure there are no gaps.  That is, don't put in search.3 without having defined search.2

Thanks, worked out great!  I'm really digging this port so far!  It has crashed once on me, but that was when I went to the "quit" option on the main menu.  It could have been my Wii, though, since it sometimes likes to fade to black and never return.

Once again, thanks! Cheesy

I just tried this out last night, and I've got to say that it's pretty awesome to be able to play UQM on my TV!  I do have one request, though.  Maybe it's possible and I'm just missing something, but I feel like I'm unable to play the main game without being able to use the search function on the Starmap.  I'm sure you're busy with other things, but for the next time you update, I think that would be worth putting in there.

Either way, thanks for the port!
