Hm, well I have tried a lot of stuff, but nothing is working. Also tried on my wife’s computer, and it also resets all controller custom binds on client restart + controller disconnect. I have also tried doing a full re-install of the game through Steam.
I’ve tried with both a switch pro controller and a Xbox One Wireless controller on Win 10. Both run into the same issue on two PCs (both running steam).
Turning off the steam overlay didn’t change anything.
Using a switch pro controller, Steam has a compatibility setting to make it a regular xpad input, and turning that off didn’t work; that just added more problems (turning on the controller without this compatibility made me lose control of my character, he just kept running south until I turned off the controller).
The only thing I have found that works is to never turn on the client without the controller already connected. That’s the only way LE seems to pull the saved controller config. If I launch the game without the controller present, the controller config resets to default.
Really more of an annoyance than anything else. My RSI is flaring up again, so I definitely need the controller to play.
