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.

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?
