Game Controller when more than 40 buttons

I suspect this is not possible but it is worth asking. It seems that the HID game controller driver only supports 32 buttons and 8 hat switch buttons giving you a total of 40. For those X-Key devices that have more than 40 keys is it possible to have a game controller with more than 40 buttons or possibly have the device show up as two game controllers?

I have managed to get around this for my application by using keyboard keys for the remaining buttons. Less than ideal as the application needs keyboard focus to see these.

Re: Game Controller when more than 40 buttons

We are limited by Windows to 32 game buttons per device. Keyboard shortcuts is a common work-a-round.
