Emulator Issues #11400
Dolphin trimming Xbox 360 dinput devices
What's the problem? Describe what went wrong.
Xbox 360 controllers don't appear as dinput devices in dolphin. This prevents you from being able to use more than 4 Xbox 360 controllers when, for example, playing 8 player Mario Kart Double Dash or 12 player Mario Kart Wii. Xbox One controllers do not have this problem when connected via bluetooth.
What steps will reproduce the problem?
Go to Controllers > Configure > Device
Xbox 360 controllers do not appear as dinput devices
Is the issue present in the latest development version? For future reference, please also write down the version number of the latest development version.
Is the issue present in the latest stable version?
What are your PC specifications? (CPU, GPU, Operating System, more)
Windows 10 Pro 64 1803
Is there anything else that can help developers narrow down the issue? (e.g. logs, screenshots,
configuration files, savefiles, savestates)
I've attached screenshots comparing the detected controller devices in both dolphin and cemu. In Cemu because xbox 360 controllers are also detected as dinput devices, up to 8 can be used.
