Hi. I recently bought the Steam version and I’m having a bizarre problem that I don’t recall having up to this point (2.5 hours played). If I can’t resolve it or this appears to be a “me” thing, I guess I’ll ask for a refund because for me having decent control support is a requisite for these types of games.
Okay, so I have a dualshock 4. Connected straight into Steam with only PS4 controller and Xbox controller support selected on Big Picture. For the two first sessions it worked like a charm, despite being shown as an “xinput controller”. And now I’ve encountered this bug where I’ll lose some controller functionality, but not all.
STEPS TO REPRODUCE:
- Log in game.
- Summon the main menu (with “start”)
- Press down on the D-pad 4 times (as if to select “log out”, I can’t recall if it’s 3 or 4 presses).
When doing that, the menu button will be unselected. I can still use the right stick to cursor around, and the left stick and action buttons will still work to move my toon around and talk to people, but I won’t be able to close menus with start (I can however, OPEN the pause menu with “start”, just not close anything). I can summon the “select” menu, but some menus will open when releasing and some won’t (I can open inventory, can’t open maps). I believe I’ll be able to open portals and control the zoom with the d-pad, but won’t be able to navigate items or menus without cursoring around with the right stick. It’s like the menu functionality will just stop working.
I’ve tried unplugging the controller, removing it and selecting it again, no dice. I’ve tried big picture on, off, unselecting PS4 support from Steam (which bizarrely will detect the ds4 as “dualshock”), I’ve tried ds4windows, I’ve connected my xbox controller. In every instance, the steps above will break menu functionality. The only case where I’ll recover gamepad functionality will be if I close the game, then launch it again. I have no other controllers connected to my computer, and the other half of the functionality appears to be working fine, just missing the whole menu/UI side of things.
I’m sorry for the half assed testing in this case, but I’m up to 2.6 hours and I won’t be able to get my refund if I test any further. If this problem can be reproduced, and you need any more information, I’ll be glad to log in and help fix it, I can play the game at a later time if this is not something that for some reason only happens to me. I’ll have the game installed in my computer for a week more if you need any files or logs, but I will avoid launching the game any further so as not to compromise my refund chances. Any help will be appreciated. Thank you.
