I have posted this on several forums. I just found this subforum so I figured Id share.

As some of you might know that when you connect more than 1 Wiimote to the console that those controllers light up on the bottom with their respective port, with their own cursor on screen. The on screen cursor also has its own color. (i.e. 1P-green, 2P-Red, 3P-Green, 4P-Gold) I have long grown from the "hey it has an led change it!" mentality and wanted to do something a little more logical. Instead of all blue I did it for their respective colors. (From factory all the leds are blue)

I won't bother with posting in process pics or experiments I did. So here is the final product.

Very nice. I did my 360 controllers with different LED's and matching paint on the bottom so you knew which was which. I may just have to do this to my controllers. What kind of led's are they?

Thank you! I have a couple ideas in mind but nothing under way just yet. Still finishing up my "custom" sensor bar.

Melt the end of a pen, stick it on the screw and let it try. Pop it off and then you have a make shift screwdriver.

Also, you can sand down part of a flathead screwdriver so it has two "spikes" on it (one on each end) so it kind of looks like this:

Then use that.

Fancy.

I would do that, but blue suits my setup well.

Good job though.
