That is amazing. Thank you so much!

Please disregard that. I found the problem tonight, and it was simply my
error. I didn't realize that the "-kx" option would have to be given
separately from the "ctrl-add" command in interactive mode. I was trying
to do "-kx ctrl-add -kos:4,1,5,0.5,0" for the second controller. Once I
started giving the "-kx" command first on its own things started working

Thanks so much,
