I'm new to using Aster, and trying to play games with my wife side by side. Today I tried launching the game Spiritfarer to play with keyboard + mouse while she would use my Gen1 Xbox One controller (with USB receiver, no bluetooth) to play Spyro Reignited on Steam. The problem is, Spiritfarer will switch from controller to KBM and back just by using a device, regardless of the setting config.
I thought, since I set the controller's USB stick to place2, that'd take care of it, but it still seems to affect games on place1.
Appreciate any help!
Tried all combinations of assigning to the workplaces but does not want to play nicely. This is the same over cable or bluetooth.
Anyone got anything to try?
I can only think of one plausible explanation: the Windows Bluetooth driver-stack is cursed.
The main problem appears to be CPU interrupts; it appears that the BT driver demands too many interrupts occasionally, most notably when the battery of a connected device is low.
This undoubtedly occurs on all devices, but it is more noticeable on input devices like controllers because they are in continual communication with the host device.
A quick, harsh sound alert frequently plays when the CPU is overloaded in this way, and that's what I hear when this problem happens.
I've lately seen folks tweet about it, so I know there are other technically adept individuals out there who have also seen this.
As a last point, the Xbox One Controller is not the only BT device that has this problem; the Xbox Gen 2 controller is also affected.
