    I’ve got a setup with two joypads. They are connected to the pad with a single USB dongle. The joypads are connecting the the dongle using bluetooth.

    I can only get one of the to work in the emulators.

    I’ve tried to configure the joypad configuration in the different retroarch.cfg files. Setting input_player1_joypad_index = 0 and input_player2_joypad_index = 1
    That does not work. If I set them both to index 0 they both work, but on the same character in the game.

    I’ve also set up input_player1 buttons and input_player2 buttons.

    Do I need to register the pads in some way?
    Is it simply not doable since they use the same usb port because of the dongle?

    Any idea how to make this work?
