Assigning USB Joystick IDs
Posted 09 February 2013 - 11:45
Now I want to add another joystick, a Microsoft precision pro ,but instead of listing it as joystick 3,it takes the place of joystick 1, which would mean that I have to adjust all my settings in ROF.
Is there a way to assign the numbers manually in ROF?
It would save me a great deal of work.I have also tried "joyID"but it does not seam to work.

It's very handy in these sorts of situations.

Windows seems to organize joysticks using the PID number, but I don't know why my rudders started to be seen as #1.
I don't know if it was only luck or what, but here is what I did (note: I'm on Windows 8).
You may try this as a "last resource" if everything else fails.
1. Remove all your joysticks (remove from CPanel and disconnect them from USB ports)
2. Copy (backup) the following registry key:
then delete it.
3. After step 2, reboot, and then start to add your joysticks back in the exact order that you want them to be. If using a USB hub, beware of the port numbers, too.
** Do this at your own risk. **
Important: Always make a backup of the registry before doing changes, in order to be able to go back if something goes wrong.

Joyid Ive tried but it does not seem to work,am I doing something wrong? I got Win 7 64 Bit.
The registry joystick entries I have also erased, but it did not change.

It doesn't matter what order you plug them in, the priority is hardcoded into the controller.
Under Windows 98 there was a way to change the order and programs like Joyid exploited this. If you look at the Joyid executables they were last compiled in 2004. They will probably work with Win 98 and might just work with XP but if you can actualy make it work on W7 please post up here and say how.
It is quicker to remap your controls. At least ROF will handle 5 and maby more controllers. With older software like IL2 you are limited to 3 analog and 4 digital controllers.
