@Menglor, just going through bugs today and came across this one once again. We don’t have the same model controller on hand for testing but I’m wondering if the couple tweaks we made to the joystick handling has fixed this issue or if it’s still not functioning?


SO I have the SNES controller and a Xbox controller.

I just installed 7.2

using the SNES controller, the D-pad does nothing when recording the button presses. (X ,Y,A,B ) buttons do regester as expected.

using the Xbox Controller, the D pad registers all 4 buttons, however the 2 Thumbsticks do not register any presses (D-pad and XYAB buttons do register button presses)
