    Hi,
    I've got a joystick with 8 axes (actually this is a HMD with a driver that is recognized as a joystick with 8 axes)
    Only 6 axes are found by GLFW (and I absolutely need those 8 axes).
    This HMD-joystick is correctly found in Windows, where we can see that is has 8 axes and 10 buttons.
    How can I have those 2 missing axes in GLFW ?..

    That will be resolved only with the move to DirectInput. winmm has a hard-coded limit of six axes.

    Thank you very much for your answer, Camilla !
    It makes perfect sense now...
