Right and left key inputs only seem to respond with tighter pressing

  1. I've noticed a bug in my Playdate where left and right keys only gain input with tighter presses. Seemingly deadzones within the D-pad
  2. The platform I'd be using is the Playdate itself.
  3. When pressed lightly on right or left keys on the D-Pad there seems to be no input, while a stronger press seems to work perfectly well.
  4. This bug happens in all games including menus.
  5. Press Right Key (light) ----> No response ->>>> Press Right Key (slightly firm) works fine. Vice Versa for the left key.

Thank you for your time and patience. Hope there's a solution to this issue.
