The Isle – How to Fix Being Unable to Use Your Controls or a New Feature

Has a new update arrived? Does it add new keybinds? Well you might suffer from a case of… “Controlitis”. Good news it is an easy fix, bad news is that the normal instructions that people will give will also wipe out your skins. I’ll show you how to fix it without wiping out unneccesary files.

Accessing the Folder with The Settings

Like with a lot of games, if not majority, The Isle hides settings and misc files in Appdata which isn’t easily accessible from your regular user (for good reason)

To access Appdata what you want to do is hit your windows key and R key at the same time to bring up the “Run” window.

Once up, type Appdata or %Appdata% into the input and hit enter or the OK button.

You then want to navigate to Local, TheIsle and then Saved.

Delete the config folder and you’re all good.

Do Not Delete the Entire Folder

Deleting the entire will delete your saved skins (Found in the SaveGames folder if you wish to make a backup.)

Deleting just the Config folder should fix your issues as the game will generate a new one for you.

I love two things in life, games and sports. Although sports were my earliest interest, it was video games that got me completely addicted (in a good way). My first game was Crash Bandicoot (PS1) from the legendary studio Naughty Dog back in 1996. I turned my passion for gaming into a job back in 2019 when I transformed my geek blog (Re-actor) into the gaming website it is today.
