    Hi. I have an issue connecting the Nintendo Switch Pro Controller to my game. This specific issue arises only when I connect it using a universal object that is created before everything else, where the game refuses to recognize it exists. When I place the exact same code in the get_input event, which is called only when the an object is already created, it works perfectly. However, this issue does not occur when I instead try to connect an Xbox One controller. No matter where I place the connection code, the Xbox controller connects flawlessly. I'm at a loss. Does anyone have any ideas?

    Here is my connection code:

    player_array[0] = -1;
    player_array[1] = -1;
    player_array[2] = -1;
    player_array[3] = -1;
    number_of_controllers = gamepad_get_device_count();
    i = 0;
    j = 0;
    for(j = 0; j < number_of_controllers && i < 4; j++){
    if (gamepad_is_connected(j) == true){
    player_array = j;
