    As title suggests: I am running a dual monitor setup whereas I have PSO in windowed mode on one screen and while trying to play another game on my primary display, gamepad input is registering to PSOBB while playing the other game.

    Any means to prevent input gamepad input from PSOBB when it's not the foreground application? It seems regardless of whether it is the foreground or a background application, it registers gamepad input.

    Disconnect game pad before launching PSO.

    Oh my god, what an embarrassingly simple solution-- it works!

    Thanks a ton!

    Just a sidenote :

    I worked on a Xpadder. setup to play dual char 1 controller, controls only the active window, and after lot of research and testing i got it to work which basically means :

    Unplug Controller -> Log in 2 characters -> load the file -> plug controller in -> walk with char 1 -> press "start" on controller (i macro ALT+TAB) -> 2nd char window pop up -> same controller walk -> other caracter wont move anymore -> have fun.

    PS: only 1 issue with this setup -> targeting "feels" not that precise sometimes, but u wouldnt dual char if you run something real hard anyway so it doesnt matter much if i run something harder i just load another setup in Xpadder.
