[Tips] Automatically detect more controllers up to a specified count

In case JoyToKey is started when no controller is connected, JoyToKey tries to automatically detect devices until one controller is connected.

But some users may want to continue the auto detection until two controllers are connected. Or some user may want to disable this auto detection completely.

Multiple Gamepads

Since JoyToKey 6.2 version, you can change this behaviour by adding/changing the following line in “JoyToKey.ini” file.

# in case you want to continue the auto-detection until two devices

# in case you want to disable the auto-detection

NOTE: Repeated auto-detection of devices while playing the game may lead to an occasional delay or input lag. So this auto detection should be only used for the number of devices which are always connected.

In case you connect more joysticks later, please manually refresh devices by simply clicking JoyToKey icon in the task tray (either left click or right click works).
