    Controller issue playing FFXI and FFXIV at the same time.

    I'm attempting to play 11 and 14 on the same PC at the same time. (PC handles it fine). My issue is my controller is inputting both games. If I'm tabbed out of 11 and play 14 my 11 character will be responding to the same inputs.

    Can I configure my controller to only operate the game on screen?

    Windows 10
    PS4 controller
    Windower for FFxI
    Windowed mode for FFxiV

    Thanks in advance for any help!

    Hmm.

    I know in FFXIV you can disable controller, option is definitely there, I just don't remember where.

    For FFXI...

    Sauce: https://github.com/Windower/Issues/issues/562

    Hello,
    I'm not sure when Square Enix added it, but in the Final Fantasy XI Config for Gamepad, you now have TWO new options:
    1. Enable XInput
    2. Enable gamepad when game is inactive.
    Number 2 might help you. It is allowing me to use my gamepad regardless of the focus status of the game.
    It might be something to look into.... Hope this information helps.
    So uncheck/disable #2 ? Unofficial windower should adopt the setting maybe?

    Thinking about it, how does old windower work? I recall dualboxing and one of the FFXI windows are focused, the other won't respond. Unless it's because I was dualboxing and it just works like that where FFXI grabs the controller.

    I could be remembering wrong but I had the same issue and the only way i could get it to stop doing the XI window was to open my 2nd XI account too

    This was a long time ago tho idk

    Unchecking the box didn't help. Really annoying.....

    The game keeps re-checking the box for input while inactive. I wonder what is causing that.

    Windower controls it. You have to change the setting through the windower launcher.
