How do I make the xbox for windows controller work?

The xbox for windows controller is working, but there's a strange behavior when I test.
The analog stick won't move the character until I press a button (like X).
Its like the game doesn't know the controller is there until I press a button,
but the analog stick directions don't count as buttons.

Has anyone else experienced something like this?
Is there a fix for it?

Thanks.

Quote from the manual: https://www.scirra.com/manual/143/gamepad

To prevent allowing websites to track you by your available controllers, most browsers supporting Gamepad input will report that there are no controllers connected until a button is pressed on one of the devices.


As can be seen, this is a browser limitation and not a C2 limitation. It is hardly a problem. Just have a screen saying press a button to start.
If your vision so exceeds your ability, then look to something closer.
