Multiple Simultaneous Controller Support
How about having a way to tie multiple controllers into a configuration set?
For example Madcatz 360 controller + Thrustmaster Steering wheel and peddles + Cyborg Rat7 mouse.
Then I can setup my customisation for all three controllers in one place and apply the configuration in one go to the game I want.
Then I can do things like set up the 360 as usual but also use the foot pedal to run, crouch, or throw a lethal in something like MW3.
There are some plans for this in the future, but it probably won't be for quite a while. You could run multiple instances of PGP for each device (with configs for each) and that would do the same thing, just a little more of an involved setup.
cool thanks, i will try that out.
By running multiple instances, can you also make multiple controlles appear as one controller? (not just one configuration set, one virtual controller which combines all the analog axis of the real controllers).
This would be incredible for owners of the Logitech G940 HOTAS, which appears as three different devices (joystick, throttle and pedals). Many games, though, support one device, only. PPJoy kind of does the trick, but Pinnacle overall is much more flexible and userfriendly.
I agree this would be a great feature. For example, I use at the same time a racing wheel and a button box (basically a box housing a bunch of joystick buttons). If you were able to integrate these, you could for example assign a button on the wheel as a shift button which would shift the joystick buttons on the button box. That kind of feature would be awesome and I think would be unique to PGP based on having tried other joystick software.
Yes, I have plans for such a thing but you should read my reply over here...
