How can I detect controller when the game is launched?

I know that I can use joypad_connection_changed but it only works after you plug the controller while game is already running. People often plug the controller before they launch the game so is there a way to check if controller is connected when launching the game? Maybe I should emit joypad_connection_changed manually but I don’t know how. Please help!

Will return a list of connected joypad ID’s


Will be zero if no devices are found

Thank you! That worked.

Is there an equivalent in 3.5?
