Issue with controllers id

Post by BananaSplit » Sun Apr 29, 2018 3:46 pm

Hi,
I want to use gimx with 2 ps4 controllers (which i successfully did),
but I'd like to know if there's a way to change which controller is joystick 0 and which one is joystick 1?

Or to tell gimx which one to use to launch?

My issue is that one controller is always joystick 0 for gimx launcher (the one required to press the ps button), even though it is recognised as joystick 1 in gimx config.

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

There is no way to change the order. Controller used for authentication is always joystick 0.

The only way to proceed is to replace all mappings using gimx-config (in the "Button" and "Axis" tabs).

Quick update.

If anyone is in the same situation, and needs 2 DS4 with one controller being specifically "controller 0", plug both your controllers in your pc, unplug the usb cable on the one you want to be 0, and connect it to the PS4 via bluetooth. Disconnect it from the PS4 and plug it again in your pc and voila, it's "controller 0".
