So I recently upgraded to 2.5.0 and noticed that closing my game now ends with this: https://i.imgur.com/7RewYmi.png

Rolling back to 2.4.2 I notice other issues and I am upgrading from 2.3.2. Additionally this is of course windows only it seems.

I believe the core of it is the steam overlay calling the disconnection of a controller but. I don't even have a controller plugged in during these tests. Additionally and slightly unrelated but isn't directinput a bit old? Does SFML also have support for Xinput?

Sounds like this problem:


My solution was to change  the order in which SteamAPI is initialised (as mentioned near the bottom of the thread)
