Hi Oogst, 

I believe there already have been several answers to this. Simply put most people suggest

1. Keep the rendering on the main thread
2. Call SDL_PumpEvents on the main thread as well
3. SDL_PollEvent on the input thread

If this does not work, then you have to do what I have done, which is to also call SDL_PollEvent on the main thread as well, and put it into a thread safe data structure, that you can then read from your input thread. As I have later discovered, this should not be necessary, as the SDL_event queue is already thread safe.
