    The controller works except when I try to open the Oblivion game then only the joystick works to move to different options like continue, new, load , but I can't select any of them. It's the xbox 1 console

    Xbox One Controller Not Working

    What operating system are you using?

    When you open the control panel (use the "classic" control panel on Windows 10, not the "modern" settings app with the cogwheel/gear icon), type "game" into the search panel in the upper right of the control panel window.

    It should show you the game controller settings in the search results. Open the game controller settings, and test the controller under the testing tab.

    If the controller moves the cross around, the "lights" go on when you press the buttons, and the D-Pad moves the POV circle around, then the controller is working.

    You can then try to troubleshoot why Steam is not detecting the controller.

    Batman Telltale Series error

    Try to open the game with your console in offline mode If your profile is set as home console. If It works its a problem when You try to open the game when you're online

    Issues with console no responding/Black Screen of Death???

    The controller is connected, and will turn the console on without being plugged in. But the function is not working properly. When I try to use controller for anything, it lags a bit and typically will have that error code I mentioned pop up. When I press
    the button on the controller to open up the guide, the screen just dims down and nothing will show.

    mic not working

    This happened to me a few times in the same game, when I discovered a solution: make sure you plugged your headset into the controller before opening the game, do a test by creating a group using your own xbox, if it is working, try opening the game.

    Also, make sure that in the audio options the mic is enabled and in the game options the audio is set for the group of people you are playing (xbox group, group or game)

    CONTROLLER DRIFT

    Do you happen to eat when you're gaming?

    As silly as that sounds, sometimes crumbs and stuff fall into the thumbsticks and cause the controller to drift.

    Again, this might sound silly but try blowing inside the thumbstick and see if that helps.

    If not, you could try running tweezers around thumbsticks!

    If none of these ideas work, you could always open up your controller and fix it that way, but I'd just recommend a new controller at that point!

    Best of luck!
