I started playing Hyper Light Drifter
over the weekend, but the game isn't playing nice with my X360 controller. However, since I haven't found any comments on the web that suggest the same problem, I'm starting to wonder if it's not HLD
but either my gamepad or my computer/setup/drivers that are the problem.
What's happening is this: in the game, every now and then an input gets stuck. I might be running to the right, and suddenly my character continues running to the right and the game registers no other controller input. If I then use the keyboard to get to the menu, the gamepad input is still in effect (e.g. I go to the controller menu and it cycles through the different controller types, as it would if I were actually pressing the stick to the right).
This only stops once I unplug the controller, at which point I could still play with the keyboard. If I plug the gamepad back in while HLD
is still running, sometimes it doesn't register, sometimes the game crashes.
I haven't encountered any similar issues in the other games I'm currently playing, though they control with KB+M. Not sure if they should even register gamepad input unless I set them up to do so.
Any ideas what the problem might be, and whether it's more likely to be an issue with the game or with the gamepad, drivers or anything else related to the system?
