windows joystick numbering
« on: June 23, 2017, 08:41:37 AM »
I'm having some issues with joystick numbering in AM.  Does anyone know how this is done.  What I'm looking for is a way to specify a number for each joystick by its USB device ID.   MAME has this capability now by using controller files and using something like

<mapdevice device="Generic   USB  Joystick   product_00060079-0000-0000-0000-504944564944 instance_719b54d0-567f-11e7-8001-444553540000" controller="JOYCODE_5" />
I'm looking for something like this.  Windows is very strange how it assigns numbers to joysticks upon boot, its not always the same.  Thanks
