[Potential FIX] Related to SteamCloud: Controller problems, if your options seems not applying...

Hi everyone...

Having issues with my controller's game settings sometimes appearing not staying applied...

I found the potential source and a fix to this problem...

I discovered that sometimes SteamCloud is backing up our game settings files, and sometimes doesn't update these files on SteamCloud after leaving the game...
Therefore when we re-start the game, it's overwriting the local file with SteamCloud's version, therefore erasing previous modifications...

I discovered it by going on a crazy idea: editing the gameSettings.xml file...
The line that I changed is the following one:
<isGamepadEnabled>true</isGamepadEnabled>
(changed false for true)

Once I saved, Steam popped a "file sync problem" window saying that a local file is different from SteamCloud version...
I logically clicked "Replace with local version", as I knew that I had modified a file...

Once I started my game, the "GamePad/Steering Wheels" option was finally to ON, and my controllers are finally working fine, and apparently I could even use both my controllers(Logitech Dual Action G.P and Extreme Pro 3D J-Stick).

Cheers
