HID windows to mac xbos 360 wireless controller

  • I use a lot of wireless joysticks, usually older logitech ones that are great and automatically pick up if they drop out. I have had to find a replacement and am using xbox 360 controllers. On a mac I get solid performance and if the connection drops you can press the connect button and be back in business. 

    I have had to switch and use this on a pc laptop. If the connection drops I have to restart Isadora to connect again, even though I get a connected status on the driver. Also when I move the patch from mac to pc, the same HID controller gives different names, I have to do the stream setup again every time- the combination of these two behaviours  is driving me nuts. Does anyone own Isadora for windows and an xbox 360 controller- if you could save a blank patch with the buttons captured and numbered in stream setup.... Mark could you generate generic names for the HID devices so that mac to windows transfer works?
    I have the same behavioural problem when I use the OIS library for connecting to gamepad controllers with openframeworks (the disconnecting anyway), I find it strange that I get the problem on PC but not mac, does Isadora use different libraries to access the hid devices on mac vs pc?
