Star Wars Jedi Survivor Controller Not Working on PC: Is there any fix yet
The controller not working issue was present in the previous iteration of the series, Star Wars Fallen Order and it seems that this has carried over to the latest installment as well. Anyways, with the suggested potential workarounds, we are sure that the problem will be fixed for good.
1) Install DS4 on Windows
Installing DS4 on your system can fix the controller not working issue in the game in case you are using a PS4/PS5 controller. So, head to the official website of DS4 Windows and download the application. Now, follow the instructions given there and connect your controller. This method has been reported to work for many players, so make sure to give it a try.
2) Steam Controller Configuration support
Based on the controller you are using to play the game, you should enable its configuration support via the Steam Client, if you have downloaded the game via Steam. To do so, head to the Steam Client, click on the Steam option at the top left, and then select Settings. Now, click on the Controller tab, and then select General Controller Settings. After this, enable the Configuration support for the controller in use. Eg- Xbox Controller Configuration Support, PlayStation Controller Configuration Support, Generic Controller Configuration Support, etc. Make sure to save the changes and then launch the game.
3) Enable Steam Input
For this, you need to head to your Steam library, right-click on Star Wars Jedi Survivor and select Properties. Now, under the Override for Star Wars Jedi Survivor setting, select the Enable Steam Input option by accessing the drop-down menu.
4) Verify the Integrity of game files
Although this method doesn’t directly fix the controller not working issue, it can still be a viable workaround to the problem. So, head to your Steam library and right-click on Star Wars Jedi Survivor. Now, select Properties, and then navigate to the Local Files tab. After this, click on the Verify Integrity of files option. You can also verify game files via the EA App.
Once you do so, let the scan complete, and then launch the game with the controller connected to check if the issue persists.
5) Unplug additional input devices
Make sure only your controller is connected to your PC while playing the game. Having multiple input devices connected at the same time may cause issues as the game fails to recognize which input device is the primary one.
6) Check the controller
Your controller can also be the cause behind this issue. Check its functioning by using it in any other game that supported it before, and if it doesn’t work, then you need a new one.
7) Check connection
If you have connected your controller via a USB cable, make sure to check if it is working fine. Faulty connections can result in such issues.
8) Connect to a different USB Port
Consider connecting your controller via a different USB port, as the issue might be related to the specific USB port you are using.
9) Reinstall game
If the workarounds mentioned didn’t fix the issue, then all there’s left to do is reinstall the game. After a fresh installation, the controller not working issue should be fixed.
