I've been playing BS after getting it through the XBox game pass on PC. I'm about 70% of the way through, and now my controller won't work at all in Bloodstained. At first it would just not work sometimes when I started up. Not letting me through the first menu at all, so I'd just unplug it and plug it back in. Now it works for one button press when I do that and then ignores it completely.
It was working just fine. Works just fine in other games. No changes to the system that should impact this. No other controllers. I've tried unplugging other peripherals. I've been searching for solutions but all that comes up are Steam solutions.
So... Any way to fix this? As I said, controller works fine everywhere else.
Tried: - Unplugging other peripherals, including keyboard/mouse etc. - Restarting, of course. - Unplugging/plugging back in both before and after launch. - Running BS as admin. - At one point when I unplugged the controller in the main menu, I received a blue message asking that I re-insert it. Doing so did nothing. Message just sat there.
System: - Win 10 Pro - i5-7600k OC'd to 4.9ghz - Geforce 980 ti - 32 gb RAM - Standard USB XBox 360 controller. Again, works in other applications just fine.
I was having problem with xbox 360 controller on PC too, I got random phantom input. I thought it's a bloodstained issue as I don't see any issue with emulators. But then I see similar issues on bio 5 too. 2 different PC tested. and few weeks later it's all gone. I think it's a windows 10 issue.
It’s almost 2020, it was about time to upgrade that old 360 controller anyway. I used to have one for PC gaming since 2006 and it crapped out on me a couple of years ago. Things aren’t meant to last forever.
exile: Yeah, I love me some graphics, and when we can have both graphics and gameplay, then why not? If budgetary limits mean only one is possible, then gameplay all the way. Some brilliant games aren't much to look at

exile: And yeah, purify, the wine glass was a nice touch. If I could farm it up to 9, I'd consider using it.

Seta: Honestly i only use Xbox because all my friends went Xbox, if not for that i would have went PS4 for my love of RPGs. As for Switch i wasn't aware they had any good games aside from Smash

DemonLordLover: Tthe Swordwhip's unique feature is very neat, but stat-wise, it definitely should be among the strongest stuff in the game.

DemonLordLover: It was one of the most hyped features in the game...

Aztec: Seta no good games on Switch other than Smash? Have you been living under a rock or are you aware of these two small 95+ Metacritic GOTY contenders called Zelda Breath of the Wild and Mario Odyssey? And that’s just two of them.

Seta: My own personal bias but even as a kid i never cared for Zelda, er i mean Link "it's dangerous to go alone take this".Especially since he couldn't beat the old man or chickens in later games. Odyssey did intrigue me though. Give me RPGs, fighting games,

Seta: Metroidvania, Zombie games, or even card games

Aztec: What old man? Breath of the Wild completely changed everything about the Zelda formula. You don’t have to like it but to say that a system that in less than 3 years already outsold the XB1 which has been out for almost 7 only has ONE good game is myopic

Seta: The old man in the cave that gives you the sword. i didn't say Switch only has one good game, i said it only had one good game i knew about, although i forgot about Odyssey so i was still technically wrong

ovenkitty: Switch is great if you like Nintendo 1st-party. They also get a lot of the same indie games that come out on everything else (Dead Cells, Hollow Knight, etc). Also very late ports of AAA titles.

Brainiac: You can, exile. You just have to play the game through to IGA nine times.
Dec 9, 2019 8:29:26 GMT -6
exile: Yeah, I get that. I just forgot to do it on my second playthrough and I'm not feeling the motivation to do it another 8 times for one spell. Thanks for the info, though.

Seta: is there any way to see your current max ammo capacity without having max ammo?
Dec 9, 2019 20:22:54 GMT -6
Brainiac: It's on the menu screen whenever you have a gun equipped, Seta.

Aztec: the only sensible explanation for this silent treatment is if they’re getting ready for an announcement during tomorrow’s Game Awards event. What are the chances you guys think it could happen?
