    Using a wii remote for my ipad emulators, just wondering if you can take the on-screen buttons completely off? i use the genesis emulator and snes. Is there any other emulators, that would work well with the ipad besides these 2? i cant seem to get the playstation one working. Thanks - Kes

    This would be entirely up to the developer of the emulator in question. There is no app or tweak which would enable this generically, sorry.

    Here is an idea:
    Use file or SSH to root around the app's files. Find the pictures for the on-screen buttons, and replace them with transparent pictures. Just google or you can make your own.
    What do y'all think?

    That's what I did to make NoDock and NoSlider for winterboard.

    After you changed the pictures?
    Are you sure you didn't modify anything else?
    I know sometimes the sound in the NES emu goes out for no reason. And it will just come back randomly.
