Here, the controller works with every single other game, and it's detected as an X360 controller, even forza horizon 3 works, but not horizon 4. If you have the time, skills and patience you can update the driver manually. And if you have Steam's support on and the game supports it natively, you can get double inputs and all sorts of crap going on. I had exactly the same problem as you, my ds4 worked in horizon 3 and every other game, but not fh4. After hours and hours of trying to get Exclusive Mode to work today I came across your post and it instantly fixed my issue.
I Have to spam the buttons then sometimes I will get an input. But I do hate when it gets an override and the lightbar comes on. For Witcher 3, just use I'll post a list of games I own with native automatic ds4 support example is battlefield 1 or nex machina Otherwise ds4windows is the way to go. Controller and all buttons are recognized by Windows using the native Windows drivers. The bumbers don't work at all and have no input so i cant even change a view or other uses. I tried even using my old xbox 360 controller that's compeltely meses up, but for the 3 minutes that it worked, it worked perfectly, I was able to move around the menus and drive normally. Check to see if your headphones are working.
I have not had any problems doing this but need to use a phone charger to keep the controller charged. Some games support it, some have to use Steam's software. I recently had this stop working for me as well, but I found a workaround. I always wondered if there was some process somewhere causing the problem, and I even suspected it might be an Nvidia program, but I was lost in the endless list of processes running on my machine. Driver Easy will automatically recognize your system and find the correct drivers for it.
I tried out Witcher 3 for a minute too and that does have native support with PlayStation button prompts, but only though wired, and even then all the audio went through the headphone jack. A menu will pop up with a button at the top. . Your solution worked for me too! However, there are certain games, like Dark Souls, where issues persist with using the controller even when using an Xinput program. I hope they will find a fix for this, because honestly this game seems great, and it would deeply hurt if the only thing stopping me from playing it would be the controller not working properly. Go to Human Interface Devices.
Its a massive pain in the ass. Have a question about this project? I guess tries to use both of them at the same time. I recently got a new computer and wanted to use a Dual Shock ps4 controller on it to play games. The team assured everyone they heard that request loud and clear, but who knows. Yeah, I tried everything even hooking up global xbox profile only. What is your computer's make and model? If you were to go into the control panel under the device menu after activating an Xinput wrapper, you would see 2 controllers listed.
Before I give troubleshooting steps, I would request you to provide following information - A. I figured I would make a guide, because I'm sure many people especially those using Windows 10 may not be aware this solution exists. As far as I understand, the problem is with Windows rather than Input Mapper because there is a beta Windows patch that actually fixes the issue. No issues of the sort with a v1. I am using Windows 10 build 10162 and it is being recognized fine.
So, it had set up my controller but when it asked me to pair. I heard controllers work better on windows 7, Windows 10 just refuses. It treats each controller separately and I never have that issue you are describing. I tried everything, even closing every single other program and then turning it on, it does nothing, It changes nothing An update for anyone that still has problem with it: I managed to make it work! I tried even using my old xbox 360 controller that's compeltely meses up, but for the 3 minutes that it worked, it worked perfectly, I was able to move around the menus and drive normally. I can be driving holding the throttle all the way down then my car will slow down as I I let go for a bit. Here, the controller works with every single other game, and it's detected as an X360 controller, even forza horizon 3 works, but not horizon 4. From what that I checked I can say that this issue has been known about for a long time, and yet nobody found a pure fix to turn on the 'hide controller' setting.
Since nothing works, I would suggest that you roll back the update. It's well indicated in controller list. Just to make sure, all the controllers aren't registered to the same account, right? Is that still the case? So the conclusion from all that, I can assume it's either the ds4 controller is faulty because the right trigger isn't using enough power or the game isn't fully using R2, but I wouldn't blame it on the controller because I play other games on my pc that uses R2 trigger and works fully functionally. Driver Easy will then scan your computer and detect any problem drivers. The triggers have an input but then will just stop and then go again and its uncontrollable. Controller works in all other titles like Dirt Rally and Wreckfest.
