FSO doesn't detect gamepad
So when I try to launch FSO or bas Freespace 2 through any of the open source project's launchers, the game doesn't detect any inputs from my gamepad. The launcher itself seesm to know my gamepad is there, as I can select it there in the settings but the game itselfr does not.
Oddly, if I launch base FS2 through steam it works just fine.

Re: FSO doesn't detect gamepad
Go to in-game  options (F2 IIRC) and check to be sure Joystick is set to "On"

EDIT: disregard; apparently that's only for using the mouse?

EDIT2: What Launcher and FSO version are you using?

I'm using the latest versions ans I've tried it with both the wxlauncher and Yet Another Launcher

Re: FSO doesn't detect gamepad
Which OS are you using? I assume Windows. Please post your fs2_open.log file.  Instructions on how to do this can be found in this post.

Most likely your problem is that the launcher and FSO are using different SDL2 versions. We'll be able to fix that once you post the above mentioned log.
