Deadly Premonition: The Director’s Cut – Working Controller Fix

I saw that many people had problem with getting controller to work, me included. Managed to get it working so i’m sharing the solution.

How to Get Controller to Work

Set controller as preferred device.

  1. Open Windows Start screen/Start menu (bottom left), type joy.cpl into search and press Enter.
  2. Click Advanced.
  3. Ensure your controller is set as the preferred device.
  4. Click OK to save your changes and close the window.

Even doing that my controller didn’t work properly but it seems that for this setting to take effect you have to restart your computer. After setting your controller as preferred device and restarting windows it started to work properly for me in the game. (of course don’t forget to choose controller as your input device in the game launcher).
