BOOL WPADAttachDummyExtension( s32 chan, u32 type );

Parameters

chan One of the WPAD_CHANn values.
type One of the WPAD_DEV_*.

Return Values

Returns TRUE if the device type was successfully changed and FALSE otherwise.

Description

Changes the Wii remote device type for the specified channel without actually plugging in an external extension controller to the Wii remote assigned to the specified channel. Call this function when nothing is inserted in the Wii remote. No change can be made if an external extension controller is already plugged into the Wii remote. The Wii MotionPlus is treated as an external extension controller. If it is plugged into the Wii remote this function will not be able to change the device type.

NOTE:
Because this function is used for debugging applications, it works only with the debug version library. It does not work with the release version library, where FALSE is always the return value.

Interrupt handler Do not call this function from any interrupt handler.
Exception handler Do not call this function from any exception handler.
