    I use a stream deck as a button box and the controller configuration menu does not support controller buttons for button IDs greater than 100. The interface treats them all as the same button. The Windows game controller supports up to 128 buttons per controller (AFAIK) so this seems like a bug to me.

    Manually editing the controller configuration file with the correct button names doesn't work.

    EDIT: Yikes, it looks like multiple devices collide too. Device ID 1 button 1 and Device ID 2 button 1 both trigger the same binding.

    Correct, our engine currently only suports up to 100 buttons per device. I will dig to see if we can increase that number in future updates.

    If you connect identical devices, such as 4 identical gamepads, their configuration will be identical too. This is normally used for multiseat mode (offline multiplayer). There's no support to have the very same device model do different things depending on the plugging order or anything like that.

    Increasing the maximum would be great, thanks for looking into it.

    The identical gamepad problem is unfortunate but I see the reasoning, thanks for the insight.

    The next major update will feature support for 128 buttons.
