    Maybe someone here knows about this one?

    Is there any way to change the numbering sequence for the Controllers used in GTL? I've searched around but no luck.

    To explain, I have been using three controllers, Joy 1= Fanatec Wheel, Joy 2= CSP Pedals, Joy 3= G25 Shifter via Bodnar adapter.

    I have just acquired a new Sim Gear Shifter.

    When I swap the G25 Shifter for the Sim Gear Shifter, I end up with Joy 1 = Sim Gear Shifter, Joy 2 = Fanatec Wheel, Joy 3 = CSP pedals. This causes me to have to re-set all of my Controller assignments again every time I swap them over.
    Maybe this happens every time you change a Controller anyway, dunno, but it's a bit of a pain.

    Anybody aware of a way to change the "Joy=" assignment order in GTL? I'd like the Shifter as Joy 3.

    It all still works ok after I re-set the assignments though.

    That will have more to do with the way windows sees the controllers than what GTL sees. For whatever reason, the shifter is receiving a higher priority. Having said the blindingly obvious, I'm not sure that you can change it, especially if the priority is assigned via the hardware.

    I used to use JoyIDs for managing multiple controllers but that was back on WinXP. I haven't tried it with Win7 but it may still work. You can find it here.

    Thanks Ross, I'm using WinXP for my SimRacing, so this looks like it might be what I need.
    I'll give it a go. ;)
