PSA: Sonic Riders Zero Gravity Bug

I realize this is unusual content, but OMG THIS DROVE US CRAZY THIS MORNING.

If you have the Sonic Riders Zero Gravity game for the Nintendo Wii, and it is asking you to press the plus button but nothing is happening when you do, see if you have any controllers (such as Gamecube controllers) plugged in to the Wii. If you do, unplug them, restart the game, and then the + key will work.

OMG SO FRUSTRATING. It's apparently that it defaults to any controller that isn't plugged in, and then doesn't recognize the Wii remote when you try to use it.

Dude, that sounds ANNOYING!! We don't have that particular game, but I'm going to make a mental note of this tip just in case -- who knows when it might be helpful.

Also, apparently I say "dude" when I am sleep deprived. Who knew?

We have the firefighting game and it does the same thing. I have ZERO patience for it all so I don't know exactly what it does or doesn't do but something happens (or doesn't happen?) and you have to unplug stuff and start it over. Just an FYI.

I just played that game for the first time the other night and I hate it. Yep, hate. ;)
