Should the joystick or mouse port be displayed first?
 
I'm reviewing some user interface choices, and here's an open question:
- Should the joystick port (port 1) device selector be displayed above / before the mouse port (port 0) selector :confused
(Currently, port 0 is displayed before port 1, simply because 0 < 1).

What would make most sense for new users? Of course part of the question is also: is it worth switching from todays behavior?

This question applies both to FS-UAE Launcher and the on-screen menu in FS-UAE.

I voted for the first point because I think the Amiga is in first line a computer and not a game console ;)

well, since generation iphone hits the emulator scene the amiga uses roms.
so it's actually a console xD.

ontopic: ofcourse the mouse should be in port 0

Of course :laughing -I wasn't suggesting to renumber the ports or anything, just looking for thoughts on what is the most intuitive and/or suitable *display order* for Amiga setup.

People currently need to think (a bit) to understand that player 2 (usually) uses the device in the top selector, and player 1 the one in the lower.

Possibly just a problem for "console users" ;)
