@antided This isn't a Construct 2 bug, this is a hard limit with Windows and MSDN. The drivers supporting controllers have a max limit of 4, which you would need to program your own utility to circumvent. As it isn't possible with native controller support, Construct 2 doesn't support eight controllers. Hope that helps.

Can I see an example of a utility? Or should I program it myself?

Closing as not a C2 bug, it's a limit in the APIs, sorry.
