    Hey, I just bought a Logitech F310 to test out how both the XInput and DInput modes would function. While the XInput function seems to perform flawlessly, the DInput mode does not work at all. The input system recognizes it and assigns it to the correct input scheme, however none of the buttons work at all. Nothing happens. However, if I build for Android and connect the same controller on the phone, whether the controller is on DInput or XInput mode, the game works without any issues. What is the difference between these platforms that causes this? Is it possible for me to fix this issue on Windows to have support for DInput gamepads as well?
