    I'm trying to create f.e. a shop interface where both players should be able to navigate through it to buy their items.

    I can't really find any info on this (which again blows my mind cause how are people making local multiplayer games then..)

    As a cherry on top I'm also using XInputDotNet, because the built in input system is a complete joke, but then with XInputDotNet I don't know how I can use the StandaloneInputManager to catch the XInput events.

    Does anyone have any idea how to do this?

    Thx for the reply, but the problem is multiplayer. Multiple players navigating a window like a shop to buy stuff.
    The eventsystem only allows for one controller, but I've found a way to have multiple eventsystems so maybe that problem is somewhat solved, but the next problem is gonna be making it work with that XInput

    and ye XInputDotNet is pretty nice. It's a free XInput wrapper to replace unity's directInput which is pretty bad.
