Generic Gamepad - D-pad issues

  • My gamepad is a generic gamepad, but it still works on most programs and games, and it works on steam. While programming the controls for my game, the D-pad does not work, but the other buttons do. I'm not sure why.

    The events are as follows:

    Gamepad 0 D-pad left is down - Simulate platform pressing left

    Gamepad 0 D-pad right is down - Simulate platform pressing right

    I also set an event and variable to check whether a gamepad is connected, ran the game in Debug mode and everything checked out okay. Like I said, other buttons work just fine, just not the D-pad.

    Any advice?

  • Have you tested with other controllers? Maybe your controller sets the d-pad as other buttons instead of POV?

    I only have this one and some PS4 controllers.

    I debugged it and, yeah I think you're right. It says I pressed buttons 16 and 17 when I press the d-pad buttons. My gamepad has a analog button, and that didn't seem to help either.

  • I followed this tutorial and it worked for me (but I had to change it to "= 99" for the left and up button).

    Just watched it, and I'll try it later. It seems to be just what I needed! Thanks a lot!
