==About==Missing a spirit level at home, I decided to use the Wiimote as a replacement. Over time, this tool evolved to something more like a protractor.
Please put any comments or suggestions on the [[Talk:Leveltool|Talk Page]], I'd appreciate the feedback. Note: If you use C++ and want to use GRRlib for drawing, you might want to have a look at the 'Draw' class (Draw.cpp & Draw.h). This thing kept me sane :-)==Installation==
Download & extract the archive, and place it in your apps folder on your SD card so the Homebrew Channel can find it.
Put the wiimote on a surface you want to use as a reference and press A.
This will start a calibration for minimum and maximum values of your Wiimote, afterwards you can put it on a target surface to see the difference in inclination.

== Changelog ==
* Chg: Slightly adjusted maximum value to reduce flickering near 90 degrees.
* Chg: GRRlib is now responsible for all drawing needs. (Which means: more eye-candy)
* Add: Raw acceleration values in the debug info text
* Add: Freeze function on pressing Plus to freeze current values - this is interesting if you cannot see your screen.
This will start a v0.4:* Chg: Median instead of arithmetic mean is now used to get calibrationvalues, and afterwards you can put it this should increase accuracy.* Chg: Message class now handles text drawing* Add: Internal info on a target surface to see its difference pressing B in inclination.the slider box screen* Add: Arc graph showing current tilt
* Fix: Leftover cursor pixel from previous tests removed
* Add: Detection if Wiimote #1 is up and running
* Add: Pictures
* Add: Calibration for maximum value on the wiimote Wiimote when standing upright. These things are so unprecise :-/
* First public release
