    I am borrowing my brothers wii so I can test this skylander game I am selling to make sure it works. It has a few faint scratches. I can't get it to play. I press a and then come to this screen with a bunch of icons. One of them is the sklanders game but how do you select it. The only key that responds on the wii controller is the home button. Which opens a menu showing the controller battery life.

    I haven't played nintendo games in years and can't figure out how to play this game. Shouldn't the wii autoboot?

    Any help is appreciated. I googled it and can't get any info.

    Point the controller at the sensor, nimrod.

    Wait, you do have the sensor hooked up, right?

    and it sits on top or on the bottom of your tv. If you dont have that, it wont work. Thanks for the update, I was honestly curious about how you made out.

    The "sensor" isn't really a sensor. It's just a source of light. The remotes are what have the sensors in them. You could turn the lights down a little in your room and put a couple candles in front of the Wii and it'll work just the same.

    You mean in front of the TV. I can only imagine a frustrated GC with some candles near the actual Wii pissed that it isnt working.

    Yeah, that's what I meant, but it would still work well enough. How far away do you think the Wii is from the TV? What I'm getting at is all you need are fairly distinguishable light sources, then point the remote vaguely at them. It's not like he's actually going to play the game.

    or use the classic controller, the left joystick controls the wii hand thing.
