So I have some questions about this option: firstly anyone know what is the logic which WinUAE uses when selecting the right port for a mouse or controller? And second, anyone is seeing also WinUAE having difficulties to detect controllers like happens with my XBOX 36 one?
I see you've made edits / additions to your post, which I'll try to address

Regarding "Mouse/Joystick autoswitching". I've never had any issues with this over the years and it works perfectly (I've used "wired" Xbox controllers and currently "wireless" Xbox 360 controllers)

See my notes in the 1st post of this thread:

I should add to that really; pressing "Button 1" on any controller maps to "Port 2", pressing "Button 2" on any controller maps to "Port 1"
