Preventing the double controller / double input issue in games (DS4Windows)

(DS4Windows), creates a virtual controller (Xbox360) & our original controller (PS4 / wireless controller / etc) sends the input to the virtual one which the games can recognize as a controller than can be used.
The problem on certain games, usually co-op, split screen games, where more than 1 player is allowed to play on the same system, connecting a controller will show/display x2 controllers for 1 player. 
When using a controller with DS4Windows, it's highly recommended that the REAL controller is hidden from everything on the system besides DS4Windows itself, in order for only DS4Windows' VIRTUAL controller to remain visible to games. This is necessary to prevent the Double Input Issue.

To fix the double input issue, ds4windows has a prebuilt in program called hidhide, which when you setup ds4windows, you may have installed it,
If you haven't, You can install it, by clicking
Setting's in DS4Windows,

Followed by clicking Controller/Driver Setup to install HidHide.

With HidHide it is possible to deny a specific application access to one or more human interface devices, effectively hiding a device from the application.

In layman's HidHide, allows you hide your original controller (PS4/DS4), and only displays the virtual one (Xbox360/Dualshock4).

In DS4Windows, Open HidHide Configuration Client in DS4Windows

NOTE: If HidHide link does not open via DS4Windows, Try using alternative methods below.

Method: 1
Open HidHide via Windows Search: Type: HidHide Configuration Client

Method 2:
Manually visiting HidHide installation folder.

Default HidHide installation folder: 
C:\Program Files\Nefarius Software Solutions e.U

Open the HidHideClient.exe to open the HidHideClient Configuration Client.

Lets add DS4Windows application, to allow HidHide to use the Cloak.

Optional: Adding of the DS4Windows Updaters is not needed.

NEXT, let's hide our PS4 Controller and only allow our virtual one.

We added the Sony PS4 controller to hidhide, Now in game, The virtual controller will only display.

DS4Controller / Wireless Controller / Etc is no longer being shown.
This will eliminate any issues with double controller and double input issues.

Hope this helps out.....
