Dpad triggering twice in X4
TheSHEEEP Apr 16, 2020
Running Manjaro with KDE Plasma (if that matters?).
I also posted this on the official X4 forum, but two places are better than one, right? :D

I have a Thrustmaster t16000m FCS.
For the largest part, it works just fine.

However, the dpads - both on the joystick and the throttle - always trigger twice. Once when the direction is pressed down, once when it is released.
Making whatever function they are bound to trigger a second time once the dpad direction is released.

Needless to say, that is incredibly annoying - is there any way to turn this off?
This does not happen in Elite: Dangerous (though that runs through Proton), for example, so I must assume this is a problem with the game reacting to all state changes of the dpad buttons (both pressed and released state).

I'd like to avoid rebinding those keys to something where triggering twice won't matter. The default bindings are fine with me - if they'd only work with the dpads.
