Gamepad issue on Chrome, button auto-pressed

  • Problem Description

    "Button A" (or button index 0) is always pressed (Doesnt happen with any other button)

    Attach a Capx

    CAPX

    Description of Capx

    Just a sprite with default 8Direcion behaviour.

    Move right is mapped to "Button A" on the pad.

    Steps to Reproduce Bug

    • Just run the capx

    Observed Result

    If the gamepad is detected* the sprite moves (to the right) on his own as if the button is pressed.

    Sometimes (Rarely, I dont know how to trigger this) it detects the gamepad but the bug is not apparent until you press the button, then the sprite begins to move right no matter what even if you let go of the button.

    *I dont know if this is expected/already reported, but I ran into some issues on detecting the gamepad too. It doesnt always work for me. It seems that it always works if I close the browser first (Chrome)

    Expected Result

    Obviously, that it only moves when im actually holding the button.

    Affected Browsers

    • Chrome: (YES) version 36.0.1985.125 m <- I had to reinstall Chrome recently, so it may be because of this version! Didnt have this problem before
    • FireFox: (NO) Works fine
    • Internet Explorer: Gamepad doesnt work at all for me here...

    Operating System and Service Pack

    Windows 7 service pack 1

    Also, Im using an old Logitech Rumblepad 2 usb (I made sure that it works fine in every other program or game, or testing it on the gaming devices properties of windows)

  • Can't reproduce here with an Xbox 360 controller. Are you sure it's not just a sticky button?

  • Maybe see how it behaves with this test page: http://www.html5rocks.com/en/tutorials/ ... ester.html

    Yep, pretty sure, this happens in Chrome and in Chrome only. Not my game's problem either, the button works fine if I run my game on Firefox...

    That definitely helped!

    It looks like the current version of Chrome im using (It worked fine before updating it) doesnt like my pad for some reason, the 1 button is stuck but it works fine on Firefox (and every other program/game) using that same test.

    For what is worth, on the test my pad is listed as "Logitech RumblePad 2 USB (Vendor: 046d Product: c218)"

    Bug closed, I guess, this is on Chrome's end.
