@chris - On HiFi provided binary builds for Windows it doesn’t seem to be loading SDL2 support which, if I understand correctly, is needed for joystick/gamepad support.
Looking at DLL load tree for self compiled version shows;
SDL2.dll SDL C:\source\hifi\build\interface\Release\SDL2.dll
Looking at same for binary builds shows no indication of SDL2 being referenced.
Might explain why I never had any luck getting my gamepad to show up. I had forgotten about it until this came up and decided to try again. It works with my self-compiled code that does load SDL2 but not with HiFi provided binaries.
If you look at HiFi’s binary release for Windows - Avatar -> Input Devices you see;
Since I don’t include sixsense externals in my self compiles that makes sense. Looks like HiFi’s Windows build box isn’t including SDL2 support.
