Broken joystick in Plus

So I've setup JJ2 to play it via my Nintendo Switch Pro Controller thanks to Steam Input. The vanilla works fine. However, when trying to play it with Plus installed, the game goes nuts when I press just about any button.

Obviously I have the game from GOG.

I haven't had as much time to look into this as I'm used to, but here are a couple questions:
* What happens if you don't use Steam Input? Does your computer still notice there's a controller? If so, what does JJ2+ make of it?
* Can you share some screenshots/reporting of what numbers you see on-screen using this build?

1. You can't use Nintendo Switch Pro Controller on PC without Steam Input, at least not reliably so.
2. I can't, I am traveling tomorrow and will be far away from my computer for at least 6 months, possibly longer so I don't really have time. Still much packing to do. Best thing would be for you to get a Switch Pro Controller yourself and test it. Would also make fixing it faster since there wouldn't be any unnecessary back and forth.

Unfortunately my income from developing JJ2+ is $0 and therefore so too is my budget. I might be able to find someone to borrow one from, though.

idk if it worked for the OP, but I can confirm that this build fixed a D-pad issue I had with a custom arcade stick that’s using a Xbox 360 controller board as a base. The 4 joystick switches are wired as a D-pad, and Plus used to sporadically press Up (or so it seemed to be). This makes it work perfectly normal.

I play JJ2 using a keyboard over 99% of the time so I forgot that it was an issue.

Now the it doesn't work at all.

//edit: With the build Violet posted here.
//edit #2: #$%$##$ my luck. Just after I've posted this it magically decided to start working, lol. Works fine, btw. No weirdness from the little I've played.
//edit #3: It stopped working again, seems like it either works perfectly or not at all, completely at random, it seems.
