I'm trying to use my wii remotes on Mario Kart 8, by means of Cemu's recent native wii remote support feature.

I can get the Wii remotes connected to Windows 10 and I can configure them in Cemu's Input Settings screen. However, once the game starts I can press "A" on the title screen but on the next screen I can't do absolutely anything with the Wii remote.

What could I be missing?
