2-Player USB Controller Conflicts

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

So I own 2 Wireless PS3/PC Controller from Afterglow that use a USB dongle to play on both. Thing is I can't always get both to stay Player 1 or Player 2 on different things I play. Controller 1 might play as Player 1 on one Emulator or PC Game, but will then act as Player 2 on something else and vise-versa. Not sure what to do since even how I configure my controllers to everything I have Controller 1 set to everything in Player 1 yet still at times will end up reacting to Controller 2 as Player 1. Sometimes I get it all set right until I turn the PC off and things go back to Controller 1 as Player 2 to where I try ejecting the USB of each out and try a different slot, even turn off the controllers and place them in a different slot and turn them on and so on until hopefully it all works as it should.

So with that being said, does anyone happen to know a permanent solution for getting Controller 1 to stay as Player 1 and Controller 2 as Player 2 on these identical controllers without any further conflict on Windows 10? They respond to controls as if they were XBOX 360 or XBOX one in button placements just in case the details of that needed to be noted

I believe this is simply an issue with how Windows assigns devices and as far as I am aware there is no way around it.

I wish I could somehow assign each to a driver letter or something at least. I've been searching like crazy for a solution from Google to YouTube and so on. I figured our community here would have some that actually have a cool tip on something like that. These controllers are amazing other than getting mixed up like that. I at times think of going the Bluetooth route though

If you find a solution let me know! This issue has been a thorn in my side for some now. I have a Hori FC4 and Hori FC5 and Retroarch will not see them as separate controllers. You would think with how popular gaming is these days there’d be a solution to this.
