Default [Q] S-Pen not working with certain games

Do developers who makes games/apps need to elect to allow the S pen to work on it???

I play a game called pocket trains and the S pen doesn't work at all within the game. Otherwise the pen works on everything else.

I have tried this on the Hyperdrive ROM as well as stock 4.3 (thanks safestrap).

Is this normal? Or should the S-Pen work on anything on the Note 3?

I actually got a reply from the pocket trains developer and he said they do not plan to support the Spen, so I guess developers DO have to specifically code or program for the Spen to work.

Bummer.

I have issues with Knights of Pen and Paper. Guess it's time to message them!
