View Full Version : Having trouble recognizing multiple 360 controllers

I started using project 64 with a wireless 360 controller and it works just great, but I want to play some multiplayer game with some friends and I'm having trouble getting it to recognize a second joystick. I use microsoft's wireless dongle for recognizing the first controller, as well as the second one. However, I go to the configure controllers panel, and click on the controller 2 tab, but the emulator does not recognize any input from the controller. I ended up putting in keyboard commands for joystick 2, and using joy2key to map my controller to the keyboard, but this doesn't allow me to put in a deadzone or have analog movement(because the analog stick is mapped to keys), and I was wondering if there was some kind of solution to this.

So if anyone can help me, that would be much appreciated.

also, I know that it isn't a problem with the dongle or with the controllers, because both of them work simultaneously on zsnes and other programs. Is there something specific about p64 that makes it impossible to use 2 360 controllers?

What Input Plug-in are you using?

EDIT: I would also like to note that I have been able to use 2 wireless controllers with Project 64. Both with Jabo's and N-Rage's Input Plug-ins. Also be sure to have both controllers on and linked BEFORE opening Project 64, and properly set the Devices to the Controllers in the Plug-in's configuration window.

I use 4 XBOX 360 wired USB controllers. 4 Wired XBOX 360 white Guitar Hero controllers and 4 N642USB (homebrew) converters. They're wired to a switch.

Your motherboard/USB hub might get congested when more than 1 controller is being used.

Use an independent port.

How the hell do you put a wireless controller to the PC?

Microsoft sells a Wireless Receiver for the Wireless Controllers so you can use it on the PC, costs between 10-20 dollars (10 if you fine a good deal).

I had the same problem with my xbox controllers. You must click Configure Controller Plugin, then in the Devices tab under GamePad, there should be multiple controllers available. select the 2 different ones for controller 1 and 2

Are you connecting 2 controllers through only 1 wireless receiver? Or are you using 2 receivers? As far as I am aware, you must have 1 receiver for each controller.

hey can some one help please, I downloaded a snes emulator and have a couple wired 360 controllers, and I configured both of them the way I want and my computer recognizes both of them, but once I start the rom it wont let me use them both. I've read some where that it might be because the controllers have the same name and the computer cant distinguish between the two, is there any way that I can use both at the same time?? any help would be greatly appreciated.
