What kind of controller are you using ? Some games don't recognize certain controllers...there may be workarounds in some cases, but let's see.

This one here ?

It seems to be from a Turkish manufacturer (and I don't speak Turkish), but there seems to be a link for a controller driver. Can you download and re-install the driver ? Smile

Also, can you try plugging the controller into a different USB port ? Finally, make sure you have all available Windows updates downloaded and installed too.

I recall that I myself had a similar controller way back, and it worked for a few games too, but not for many of the "more modern" ones. Eventually I decided to buy a (relatively cheap) XBOX 360 controller for Windows, and with that, almost all games are playable.

I'm not saying you should also do the same (and buy a new controller), but some controllers will not really work with certain games, and at that point, there isn't much else you can do.

Sad

But you could still play with the keyboard + mouse ? Personally, I would recommend NOT using controllers, for most games, because they are simply a pain to use. But maybe it's just because I am so used to playing most PC games that way.

For some specialized games like martial arts stuff (Mortal Kombat, Tekken, Streetfighter,...) and racing games, controllers are good, but for most other games I myself prefer the good old keyboard and mouse.

Hi,

Did you enable "Controller" in the game settings?

Hi there,

Then I'm sorry, I don't have any possible solutions at the moment. Only game I play with controller is Assassin's Creed, but that's an Xbox 360 controller, so it easily connects.
I think there is software that allows you to "configure" controls, maybe those can be of any help, I don't know.

I found a solution for this. There's an app that's called x360ce. Worked for me.
