Many people complain about the difficulty of connecting 2nd, 3rd or 4th controller.
So to keep things clear and in order i would recommend the programmer/ers to use 4 different joyconfig files (eg joyconfig_p1 for player 1, joyconfig_p2 for player 2 etc) and not only one file.
So in order 4 someone to connect a 2nd controller he will just run joyconfig_p2 file 🙂 (same thing could be also done for wireless xbox and ps3 controllers too)
Of course joyconfig_p2 wont overwrite joyconfig_p1 data in config file
Unfortunatelly I am a linux noob to do it,but can this thought be taken into account??
