  1. Controller buttons not working on start screens for games


    Alpha-Skip Ahead

    I've been running into a frequent issue where I start a game and when it comes to the start screen, such as Press A to start, the controller buttons are not working. Quiting the game and relaunching doesn't resolve the issue. The only fix is to restart the console. It seems to affect title screens where pressing A launches the OS profile sign in.

    I have reported this from the console, but haven't seen a mention of the issue in the release notes.

    NFS Heat - Not Launching

    I DID IT. Had trouble for weeks trying to sign in trying all different suggestions, THIS WORKED INSTANTLY. While at the Start game screen while cars are whizzing everywhere, hold down the connect controller button on your xbox and sync button on your controller
    (while already signed in), and soon as it reconnects hit start game. Worked instantly like nothing happened lol. Hope this works for people.

    Split screen

    Doesn't work for me either, pressing the 'start' button on controller 2 takes me back to the main screen?

    Cant play a game

    Do you have any other controllers connected to your xbox (Big Button controllers, Guitar controller etc). If you do unplug them, sometimes that can cause games and demos not to work properly on the start screen.

    The Fable Anniversary main menu screen is broken.

    That did not work for me. I tried turning off my controller on the main menu screen and re-syncing my controller on the main menu screen. It still will not register the start button. I haven't had this problem with any other game. I was able to start up
    games like Banjo and Kazooie, or Conker live and reloaded with no problem.
