The question is often asked, so here is a master list of all games/sims of interest to SimHQ readers along with their ability to support multiple controllers. The list is organized by genre and then alphabetically by title. Green text indicates full support for multiple controllers. Red text indicates support for single controllers only. Purple text indicates limited multiple controller support.

Please add your findings to this list for the betterment of the community.

You might want to reconsider the green/red for us colour challenged people... Perhaps just a list with relevant icons?

The yellow is rather hard on the eyes as well...

Good idea though!

Just to note: DInput limit is 16 controllers. But IL-2 series is limited to 4 USB controllers, so careful in added multiples MFD's. wink

I can't see it very well myself; that's why the text "supports only a single controller" or "supports multiple controllers" is there for every entry.

Yeah... changed to purple.

iRacing is a yes to multiple controllers.

I have one of Leo's USB cards that I use for the three pedals and the wheel runs off the original G25 USB board. Why do this? It gives the wheel axis a little help to keep it separate and the pedals get increased resolution. I plan to add buttons to the wheel through Leo's USB board. The G25 buttons on the shifter are kind of hard for me to use while driving.

Over Flanders Field is a yes. However, you may have to re-assign some axes when first setting it up.

Ace's High 2 sees multiple USB controllers. I have a Saitek X52 Pro HOTAS, New Warthog and Saitek USB pedals hooked up as we speak....talk about some craziness happening in relearning the controls.

Yes Joe, but for some, Green = Blue wink I think that's where Magic Man was going?

And for many, like me, it's easy to see green and red both as brown.

Not everyone will be happy with any three colors I pick. The human eye is too variable. That's why there is descriptive text as well.

Having no experience or knowledge about AH2, should this be put in the "sims" or "games" category?

Should go in the flight simulation category.

I understand Joe. All I was sayin' was, perhaps that's where he was headed? Anywho...

No, I just don't like red/green text because of the most common form of colour blindness. Can't differentiate them that well. Didn't the first Battlefield have red/green identification for sides? (actually, didn't it take it one step further and keep the colours for the side, irrespective of what side you were on? Really confused me that...)

If you are going to the trouble of adding the text then is there any reason to bother with the colour at all? Or just have distinct lists... biggrin

Still good though... cheers

F1 2010 does not support multiple controllers with any of its built-in controller profiles, but can use multiple controllers if the "Custom" controller option is selected -- with the caveat that the "Custom" config has some programmibility limitations compared to the built-in profiles.

Descent II via DosBOX 0.74 supports 2 controllers. (combined TM Warthog as one controller)

However my "2nd" controller is the Simped-F16/USB and according to JoyToKey (Ver3.7.4 still latest see link below) the "rudder" axis is seen as Axis6 and therefore is not seen by the game. This was only found through trial-and-error only after switching to "other" tab and checking "Use Axes other than X and Y" the I have not looked any deeper than to discover Axis6 instead of the 4th DOS Axis. ie: DosBOX can see 4 axis only. The Warthog combo uses 3 axis (stick's X&Y and Thr's Y) leaving the 4th for something else. BTW, In TARGET, I disabled all axis except these including disabling the left thr.

So, I'm using JoyToKey.exe (as suggested (in general not to solve Descent's issue) from DosBOX's web site) to map the left and right bracket keys to be bank left and bank right respectively and set these keys as same in Decent II's keyboard settings. Works but not subtle at all. Always banking too much too fast. Using the CPU settings to slow it down is not the right way cause it causes the graphics to be choppy as in too many frames being skipped.

http://www.electracode.com/4/joy2key/JoyToKey%20English%20Version.htm

As per my testing: SimPED-F16/USB X=Right Brake; Y=Left Brake; Axis6=rudder

Falcon 4 BMS works with multiple Controllers and even recognizes the Toe-brakes on the Rudder pedals.
Tested with a Saitek X-52 and the Saitek Pro Flight rudder pedals. Win 7 64 bits.

Sadly better add battlefield 3 as supporting only Joystick #1. Needs some hacks to get pedals working.

Thanks for this list... but I actually found this thread because I was looking for a utility/application that specifically allowed you to combine multiple controller inputs into a single virtual controller. I used to have it, never could get it working correctly (was pretty buggy/difficult to setup), and now I've forgotten the name of it. I'm looking now in the hopes that it has improved, as I'm about to toss the flightstick portion of my Saitek x52 Pro in the garbage and replace it with a simple Logitech 3D Extreme Pro and keep the Saitek Throttle.

Anyone know the app I'm referring to? My google-foo is failing this evening.
