Semicolon in path prevents x360ce from recognizing "USB Joystick" (and potentially other) controllers #638
The problem can be reproduced with a generic USB Joystick controller (I don't have any other controllers to test) and with either the 32-bit or 64-bit version of the software. I ran into it while trying to use x360ce with a Steam game that had a semicolon in its name. x360ce refused to work in this particular directory, but worked fine in others, and it took me a long time to find out why...
Steps to reproduce:
I have not verified whether it is just a front-end problem or if it actually prevents the software from working in-game (I tried to run the game and input wasn't working, but that might have been for other reasons, such as the game simply not supporting this way of input). However, the problem is easily reproducible, so I guess it's not that hard to find out.
Perhaps other special characters need to be taken into account as well?
Semicolon was never reserved character.
