There’s no secret that this action-RPG is more optimized for controller. Maybe “optimized” it’s not the best word to use here, especially since a lot of players have reported having compatibility issues with their PS5 or PS4 controllers. But in general, this game plays better with a controller. Are PS4 and PS5 controllers not supported or is this easily fixable?
Fix PS5/PS4 Controller Not Working On PC – Nobody Saves The World
Now, there’s no definitive fix that works for all cases. The whole process of fixing this is more of a troubleshooting endeavor. Nevertheless, here are the possible fixes and following them, step-by-step tutorials:
- PlayStation Configuration Support
- Updating Windows
- Reconnecting controller
- Restarting PC
PlayStation Configuration Support
This is the main culprit for controller issues on Steam games. There’s a feature to enable or disable certain support for certain controllers. So, there’s support for PS controllers, Xbox, Nintendo, etc.
What you need to do is the following:
- Click on Steam in the top-left of the window.
- Go to Settings.
- Navigate to the Controller tab.
- Press “General Controller Settings”.
- Make sure to put a check on the box for “PlayStation Configuration Support”.
Close the window and click on OK. It will prompt you to restart Steam, make sure to do so. For good measure, also reconnect the controller and launch the game.
This is pretty self-explanatory, but for those that are wondering how will this change anything with the controller it’s because updates are crucial for compatibility with not just controllers, but mice and keyboards as well.
To update your Windows, just hit the Windows key. Then, type in “Windows Update” and hit Enter. Once the new window opens, press “Check For Updates” and update if necessary.
Reconnect Controller & Restart PC
If the controller isn’t working while you’re in-game, exit out of Nobody Saves The World. Then, disconnect and reconnect the controller. After that, you can open Nobody Saves The World. It’s a good measure to open it as an administrator as well.
Now, if that doesn’t work, maybe it’s time to do a simple restart.
I know that some of these things are trivial and that most of you have already tried them, but there’s really clear-cut solution at the moment. These are fixes which most report that work.
It seems like these compatibility issues are user-specific and there are a lot of reasons why you might be encountering PS5 or PS4 controller issues.
