Dark Souls 3 controller not working



  • On starting Dark souls 3 (steam/win11/razer blade 17) only the mouse and keyboard would work despite having an xbox series controller wirelessly connected. The xbox button prompts were there but the controller did nothing.



  • I was able to fix this by:

    Going to Big picture mode > settings (cog icon) > controller settings > untick all except "guide button focuses steam"

    Start the game and it works flawlessly.
