With CF2.5+ v293.10 (Steam), if I try to use any joystick extension, it appears to fail. If you use an application's file>Players menu and try to select a joystick from there, it gives this prompt: 2022-01-24 20_41_37-JoystickTester.png
I thought it was an installation issue, so I reinstalled the engine, but it stuck around. Now, I have a copy from before I switched to steam, and this issue doesn't appear under that (CF2.5 Not+, v291.6); all controllers appear to operate correctly under any extension, like you expect them to. Furthermore, this is NOT an issue of the version itself, as the extensions/controllers even work on a different machine.
Is there any reccomendable troubleshooting I can do to solve this issue? Its specific to a single machine running a particular instance of CF2.5+, and the reinstall (with manual directory deletion afterwards to make sure nothing was lingering behind) didn't work.
