Thanks I don't think I tried gripd before for joystick - both are by  
It's great but it only supports two joysticks/joypads. I am using two dual  
PS2 to USB adaptors with four PS2 controllers plugged in. Running two  
instances of gripd doesn't seem to work as they both share the same  
send/recieve names.
