Statically assign usb ports?

Recommended Posts

Hello.  i have an arcade cabinet with 4 controllers(2 xbox one and 2 xbox 360 brook universal).  The usb port assignments/priority seem to change after power cycles.  This causes chaos for some emulators as the Player 1\2 seem to alternate with all 4 controllers.  is there away to statically assign these?

yeah i wished there was a way to set the controller priorities.  it would make life so much easier..  i was hoping buying two different generations of controllers would solve that problem..

I've recently sorted it out ( I think, it works for me). Let me verify exact settings, and I'll come back to you guys!

Ok, undr windows 10, I went under "Power management options", then for the mode I use "advanced parameters" (might not be exact term in English, my windows 10 is in French. Then under USB, Disable suspended USB whatchamacallit.

Then if I remember correctly, you need to go under the setting sof your usb concentrator(s), and disable the sleep mode, or wahtever it is called. The above procedure should stop the controller order from resetting, etc. It does work for BT controllers too.

 

I hope I make sense!

@SentaiBrad If this "workaround works for every setup, I think it should be stickied or something. I really struggled a long time for this fix!

Well, that might work, but now the controller will never sleep if it's wireless, draining the battery, and I'm not sure if that will fix the issue after a restart.
