    Forcing PresentationInterval to 0 (aka disable v-sync) using Special K allows the game to run essentially uncapped.

    At higher frame rates (>300 FPS) mouse input was starting to drop for me.

    Basically the first connected XInput controller is always connected and used by "player one", aka the one with the keyboard and mouse. There does not seem to be a way to disable this and allow the XInput controller to be used by "player two", so at least two XInput controllers are required, or a controller of another type (e.g. DualShock 4).
