That's done and will be present in the next mGalaxy release.
Now you can map all available controllers (whereas before this was limited to the first two.... and could create a problem if Windows decided that the desired controller was in the third position, for example) ;)

Hi guys, after reading this post I'm in the process of adding the ability to assign joysticks directly from the interface;)

Perhaps it's possible to mGalaxy to add a "preferered joystick" option in the application ?
On my side I haven't the issue on mGalaxy, but have it on some emulators, depend of plug/unplug devices.

My guess is that mgalaxy is selecting the both guns and then stating no joystick.

Screenscraper on C64 does about 11 then has a "maximum number thread reached" error.  Im currently just resuming and doing it bit by bit.

Thanks for coming back to me.  As far as the joysticks are concerned i have two arcade stick, one steering wheel, two light guns and a ps3 controller attached.  On reboot today it recognises one arcade stick. the other is no joystick.  I think you are right and ill just have to turn the others off, load mgalaxy then switch them on.  Was just hoping there was an xml setting which can control it like in mame.

As for screenscraper.  I have a free account logged in and large systems dont seem to fall over.  However,  my C64 collection does.

After moving my arcade and once on an windows update, windows reordered my controllers. Iíve used devreorder but I cannot control which of the attachments mgalaxy uses for its menus etc. It decided Ďno joystickí but is probably selecting my guns 💪. If there a way to stipulate them?
I think that you might disconnect them all, then start mGalaxy and connect them in the order you want mGalaxy to use them !?

Also anyway to slow down the scraper as itís going so quick itís maxing out the threads?
I can't reproduce what you're talking about.
In my experience, the only reason the scrape might stop after a few games is if you haven't registered on the screenscraper site...and/or if you haven't entered your login details in Runway!
