Xbox One controller not working

  • Version: PC/MAC/Linux Pending


As the title suggests, D'ont Starve is not detecting the Xbox One controller, in fact it's detecting it as a generic controller not only that also the controls are so messed up, for instance pushing the start button triggers the up button, the controls are laggy, sometimes the game is triggering right joystick for itself.

More Infos

It's worth mentioning also that

  • I tried with checking and unchecking Xbox Configuration Support option in Steam and problem still occurs.
  • I tried with changing Gamepad template in Steam From Don't Starve Official template to the Standard Gamepad template and vice versa with no effect.
  • I uninstalled Steam, Don't Starve and all it's files content  and configurations and I tested with a fresh installation without messing with Steam configurations but the problem stil occurs.
  • Don't Starve Together is working perfectly fine.
  • My Mac is detecting the controller as (Xbox Wireless Controller).
  • This is really frustrating because I purchased the controller especially to play Don't Starve :(

User Feedback

Oh And I just noticed something right now, The game is detecting 2 Generic Gamepads in the controls options (I only have one controller connected to my mac)

And if I Disable the first Generic Gamepad the controller woks, But it still recognised it as a generic one (it show Button 0 etc...) in game.
