    Hello,

    if I select a multiseat scenario (like demolition derby), there are more than 5 devices which are not currently connected, but still available in system. Is there any way to disable unwanted but detected devices in beamNg without deinstalling the corresponding device drivers?

    And: How I can start the game? Or could the game only be started if all devices are assigned to exactly to one car? (I dont can do it, because some devices are not physically connected.).

    Meinolf

    I see no one ever responded here. I have the same problem. Shows 6 devices in the input section and I have no clue what two of them even are. Can anyone help?

    Devices that are not plugged should not show in the list of connected devices. Please send a support report.

    The game is more than likely functioning correctly. I think my problem is that I have other programs that add support for PS4 controllers and another that adds support for custom key bindings and another that allows me to use my G27 on My PS4. I think one or more of those, even though the are not running, are telling the game to show them in the device list.

    I was just wonder if I could hide them somehow. I did find a folder with some input related things and even found a list of devices. Maybe I can delete the unused devices.

    Thanks for your help!:)

    One could always unplug keyboard as with USB keyboards plugging in makes it work again without an issue. However I'm not sure if one player always needs to use keyboard, then this would not work, but if there is need to disable keyboard, unplugging is easiest way to achieve that :)

    The game doesn't care if you have zero, one, or several keyboard/mice connected to the computer. It will always assume there's one kbd/mouse, and will require it to be used by one of the multiseat players.

    I have an issue where i have my own controller connected an I have made my own specifications through the Logitech gaming software but Beamng.drive is still using its mode along with mine. How can I disable or change control settings on beamng.drive because I drive like a blind monkey with the default controls? when i use Logitech gaming software it uses keystrokes or commands from the keyboard instead of having a specific function to a specific app I can even use the controller on the regular desktop and not an application on my pc. for those how didn't understand, I can make the Logitech controller my mouse and/or my keyboard without the computer saying otherwise. Please help or tell me im stupid because it tells me somewhere in the game.

    Is this issue related to multiseat mode?
