more than 32 buttons?

Any chance the 64 bit version for P3Dv4 could start supporting more than 32 buttons?

Not without a very big error prone revision.  The only way I could consider doing it without makeing a mess would be to treat the second batch of 32 as a separate joystick. Still very messy but possibly viable. (And what about 128 buttons? That's the limit I think in DirectInput now! 4 joysticks?).

There's also still a limit of 16 "real" joysticks, so to avoid that becoming a problem the extra ones might need to be assigned rather higher numbers. Maybe 50+real number.

It would be a project to undertake in more settled times. Too much else to so at present I'm afraid.

Meanwhile it can be done using the HID facilities in the Lua COM library.
