2 Joysticks / requirements

Hi

Is it possible to use 2 USB - Joysticks in one environment, and how to do it?
I would like to use one for driving a vehicle, and the other one to manipulate an arm from the Vehicle.
And what are general the requirements for Joysticks to use with the vizjoy module? Are they plug&play or do i have to install drivers?
For example would the Logitech Attack 3 work (or two of them).
Or the SPEED LINK - SL-6632 PC DARK TORNADO JOYSTICK ?

Sorry I canīt post links, because in our company websites that are game related are blocked.

Thanks in advance for your answers

Sandro

Yes, each call to vizjoy.add() will return the next available joystick. Here is a sample script that shows how to connect to multiple joysticks:
Code:
import viz
import vizjoy
viz.go()

joy1 = vizjoy.add()
joy2 = vizjoy.add()

def joydown(e):
	if e.joy == joy1:
		print 'Joystick 1 button',e.button,'pressed'
	elif e.joy == joy2:
		print 'Joystick 2 button',e.button,'pressed'
	
viz.callback(vizjoy.BUTTONDOWN_EVENT,joydown)
