Will the port have bluetooth keyboard support?

Hello.

As Wii supports bluetooth and used by wiimote, I would like to know if this port will have bluetooth keyboard support.

Regards.

there are only a handfull of posts in the wii port forum, I'm surprised anyone could miss it - granted, the other port just talks about usb keyboards, but I'd guess the same applies?

Sorry, I did think this required a different topic because it was about BT and not USB.

AFAIK nintendo unfortunately did not implement a driver for Bluetooth HIDs, only USB-Keyboards are supported, which is quite sad I think. So, it's the same thing like a USB Mass Storage Device Driver - someone has to provide such driver first.

Of course I would be more than happy to see both features in the SCUMMVM port :) But I'm not sure whether I would buy a BT keyboard, if it's not supported by nintendo (and e.g. the internet channel), but only by SCUMMVM.

Edit: Now I see dhewg has answered already to wait for those drivers to get into libogc.
