Hey Kassen,
Argh!  Sorry about that, didn't mean to mess up your sequencer  
system!  Yes, support for hat/POV switches/some directional pads did  
disappear for this release.  HID support underwent a major rehaul  
since the last release, for a variety of wholesome reasons, but, for  
lack of any better explanation, some things got overlooked in all of  
that.   This will definitely be in the next release, and in fact I  
can probably get you a preview to use with working hat switches until
