Gaming with controllers

Post by Odaras » Sat Jul 24, 2021 2:04 pm

Hello,

I have two different types of wireless controllers with two different Bluetooth dongles for them and i assigned these to one work station each when i try to use the controller on one workstation if work station 2 clicks on a different window work stations 1 controller stops working and needs to be set as "focus" on the 2nd work station again ( alt tab out and back in or open the Xbox game bar ) anyone know how to fix this ? as I can only really use 1 work station at a time if gaming. ( the pc has the power just software issues ) I have run out of ideas to try and fix it

anyone know how to fix this?

It works just fine using two xbox one controllers for me and the single Bluetooth card built into my wifi, there might be an issue using two Bluetooth dongles, can you connect both to one dongle? Make sure to add/set them up inside of each users windows profile from within windows one at a time, do not set them both up at the same time under the same user. Then make sure they're set up correctly in Aster.

Sorry thought I had replied here
I can use the controller with no problems if there isn't any change of application on the other workplace but as soon as you change application the work station using the controller acts like it swapped application as well.
it doesnt matter if both controllers are connected or not can be when using one controller.

for example my son is playing minecraft and i swap from chrome to steam and it stops him controlling it until i go alt tab out of his game then alt tab back in. ( or bringing up the xbox game bar does the same thing ).

Thanks

What controllers are you using?

Does your computer have bluetooth built in and if so have you tried connecting both of them to it instead of separate dongles?

The issue here might be the use of two different Bluetooth dongles, I am using my built-in bluetooth to connect both controllers to it per a user profile, in theory you could also wire the controller and it'd fix the issue.
