For emulation in windows. I use dual shock 4 with input mapper. When I map controls (ex. Mame) they get assigned a joy #. But after a couple reboots, the joy number is changed so I have to remap again. Wondering if anyone here can help me
You shouldn't have to remap anything, that is done to the profile. I assume your talking about having to assign a profile to a different player # controller. But if your getting duplicate controllers causing it to become controller #2, something is not closing down right. You may have to change the way you turn off the controller or shut down IM to terminate the virtual 360 controller so it doesn't create a second one on startup.
