Hello,

I have noticed that the latest version (v0.14.5) of NW.js for Construct 2 released on 19th of May had bugs regarding the gamepad.
The project on which I was working with NW.js v0.13.2 was working fine and since I have installed v0.14.5 the gamepad wasn't working anymore, so I went for the v0.14 which seems alright.

Which controller or controller/driver combination do you use?

I just tried it and gamepad input seems to be working fine for me in NW.js 0.14.5, at least on Windows.

I am using an Xbox 360 controller on Windows 8.1
Maybe then it comes from the fact that my project was created before the patch ? I have tried to create a brand new project and test my controller on NW.js v0.14.5 and it works, but still doesn't work with my project. When I use v0.14 it works though. Maybe I am wrong and it comes from somewhere else, but it definitely seems correlated.

My game was made in NW.js 0.10 and the gamepad plugin works just fine on the latest version.

Having a lot of different NW installs on the same PC could be causing that. I had some bugs before because of that. You could try a clean reinstall of C2 and the latest NW.js...

That's interesting.
However I don't think that is the reason because I find myself in that situation after having done a reset of my PC. I had a technical problem and I removed everything and reinstalled. But I didn't clear everything from my secondary hard drive where my project is. Although I guess NW.js was installed on the master HD so I think there musn't be any conflicts with previous NW.js installation. I actually recall having this issue just after reinstalling brand new Construct 2 and NW.js ... I will still try to reinstall though.

Thanks a lot for your feedbacks, now I know there must be something wrong on my PC or in my project.

If you ever find out what it was, it would be cool to know.

We've had some problems in the past, and players might run into the same thing.

Maybe it could be the way you've setup the events for the gamepad? A few revisions ago C2 updated a few things regarding events, like the OR syntax..

We could take a look if you want to share.

Hey @andreyin

Thanks for the help... but I don't feel very comfortable with the idea of sharing my whole project : (
I tried to reproduce the bug in another scene but I can't do it. I will wait for the next NW.js update and see how it goes.
