I purchased a second BT adapter to support more players, but the game doesn't want to use it. If I have either one plugged in it'll use it, but it will only use one if both are connected. The jm_dbus and pair files seem to indicate that it SHOULD pair a controller to whichever adapter has fewer moves on it, but this does not seem to be the case. I've ran the reset bluetooth script, but still getting the same behavior as I repair the controllers. I'm tempted just just reinstall from scratch, but that shouldn't be necessary.

It may be important to note that I'm using two of the same brand and model adapter.

I bet both adapters have the same Mac address, you can check if you go to /var/lib/Bluetooth

Yup, making the dev version of bluez so I have bdaddr and we'll see what happens next.

Well bdaddr doesn't work with the chipset it uses, but luckily I found another utility to change the MAC on one of them. Could be handy to note that in the documentation, especially when working with cheaper dongles.

Could be handy to include some troubleshooting tips in the wiki.
