If you’re playing a game that doesn’t work with devreorder, HidGuardian is another options to filter your inputs.

Setting up HidGuardian

Note: If HidGuardian does not work well on your system, there is a work around for Star Citizen at least. SC will only see devices that are present when it is launched. Therefore, you can launch SC, then attach your devices. You’ll still have to make sure they are loaded correctly in JG, however

The easiest way to install HidGuardian is to use WhiteKnight utility. You don’t need to follow the directions, just download the tool and follow these:

  • Extract WhiteKnight
  • Run AutoWhitelister.exe
  • Click Install next to HidGuardian Install state: Not Installed
  • Close WhiteKnight

Note: If you’d rather install this manually, you can follow the instructions on vigem’s forums here

Joystick Gremlin Setup

  • https://whitemagic.github.io/JoystickGremlin/download/
  • Launch Joystick Gremlin in admin mode
  • Under the Tools menu, click Options
    • Select the HidGuardian Tab
      • Check boxes for each device type you want to use. For my setup, I have a box for T.16000M and a box for TWCS Throttle
  • Unplug all of your devices
  • Plug your devices back in

Because we’re using HidGuardian, Joystick Gremlin must always be run as an administrator. To make this easier, we can modify the shortcut so that it will always start that way.

  • Open Start and find Joystick Gremlin
  • Right-click the shortcut and select Properties
  • Select the Compatibility tab
  • Check the box for Run this program as an administrator
  • Click Apply and OK

Note: If you ever run Joystick Gremlin and down see your joysticks, double check that you’re running it as an administrator.

Verify Setup

At this point, Joystick Gremlin should have a tab for each of your devices in its main window, as well as a Keyboard, vJoy Device #1 and Settings tabs.

Launch the Set up USB Game Controllers tool from the Start menu, and you should see vJoy Device, and none of your joysticks you configured in HidGuardian tab in Joystick Gremlin.
