How To Use

PC Inputs

  • Choose an available port for the web server. By default port 80 is used.
  • Map the GamePad buttons to the wanted keys.
    • Left-click on the button to detect the input (keyboard or mouse).
    • Right-click on the button to show a pop-up menu. The Clear, vJoy, Detect and Mouse option could be used to set a key.
  • Click on the Start button.
  • Open the Wii U Internet Browser and use the URL shown in UsendMii (URL to use in the WII U Internet Browser).
  • You may need to click on the Refresh button each time UsendMii starts.

Video

  • Use the same steps as above.
  • Choose a Video Folder where MP4 videos are stored.
  • Add /video to the URL used above.
  • On the Wii U GamePad click on the video you want to view.

vJoy (virtual joystick for Windows)

  • Download vJoy from the Official Site.
  • Read the How to Install steps.
  • Before launching UsendMii Configure the vJoy Device. UsendMii will pick the first device that is available. Only buttons and axes (X, Y, Z, Rx, Ry and Rz) are supported.
  • Launch UsendMii and Calibrate the vJoy Device in the Game Controllers (joy.cpl) Properties.
  • Configure your games to use the proper vJoy Device.

How Does It Work

  • UsendMii is a HTTP server that delivers Web content to the Wii U Internet Browser software.
  • The Internet Browser uses specialized JavaScript to obtain button states of the GamePad.

  • When received, UsendMii will simulate keystrokes, mouse motions, or button clicks.
