  1. Xbox One Controller Stops Registering Inputs, Haha Unless...


    I've encountered the strangest problem with connectivity between my desktop pc and bluetooth xbox one controllers. The controller was connecting fine until a month or so back, when I started having an odd pair of problems that started at the same time:

    >Controller periodically stops registering inputs when playing a game, but goes back to registering inputs immediately once I switch to a different window then back to the game or browser tab that is supposed to be detecting the controller inputs. As far as
    I can tell this disconnection happens at semi-random intervals, though it happens more often after a few seconds or more of not doing controller inputs

    >Notably, this is sometimes also compounded by sluggish or laggy controller inputs, though this is more rare and may be caused by other problems like low controller battery or computer lag when trying to run more complex games.

    >Additionally, and potentially unrelatedly, my Xbox one controllers show the slow-flashing like they normally would for their low-battery display whenever they are turned on, and don't connect to the pc until the Bluetooth Settings window is opened, at which
    point they stop flashing and connect normally.

    I'm unsure if there was a particular change in my use that heralded these changes, but if there was I don't know what did it. I have tried the following fixes:

    -Turning all involved devices on and off again multiple times

    -Changing out controller batteries

    -Rotating computer so that the bluetooth adapter is potentially more easily detected by the controller (though this was unchanged between the times when the controllers weren't having issues and when they started I figured I'd try it anyway. No dice, unfortunately)

    -Running Windows Bluetooth troubleshooting and fixing

    -plugging in a 3rd party USB bluetooth connector device

    -Trying multiple different controllers, all of which appeared to have this identical problem when connected to this computer

    -pairing and unparing the devices multiple times

    -ensuring that controller and pc drivers are up to date

    It is worth noting that, when connected via usb cable, the controller does not persist, but I am really hoping to be able to use these controllers via bluetooth.

    Thanks in advance for the help!

    :)

    Xbox One Controller Input Not Registering

    No, it's not one of the 3.5mm jack ones, however I have no issues pressing the actual button, it always makes the very audible click noise (both bumpers have the same amount of click so to me the mechanism sounds fine) but just sometimes in-game the inputs
    don't register.

    I haven't tried running Xpadder although I have used X360CE and haven't noticed issues clicking there, however I've noticed that it's usually pretty fine if I haven't used the controller for a while (at least a day or two) but once I start using it it tends
    to get progressively worse.

    I feel like it's not just the games because I have noticed this across a few different games, mostly in the Dark Souls series (I've run into the issue across all 3 games) however I'm pretty sure I've had similar issues in stuff like Risk of Rain and fighting
    games like BlazBlue and DOA5.

    Xbox One Controller Input Not Registering

    Hello, is it one of the 3.5mm jack controllers? Otherwise, it wasn't designed to be pressed anywhere but in the ends of the LB and RB buttons.

    Also, tried running software like Xpadder to confirm whether it is being registered at all or it may be the game?

    elite series 2 a button problems

    I just received mine today and the shortest trigger stop doesn't register any input! I tested in Windows 10 and XBOX ONE with multiple games! The other two trigger stops work fine, it's only the shortest one with the single dot on the back of the controller
    that doesn't work. $179 for a broken controller? What the [Mod Removed-Profanity] Microsoft??? Should have expected no less than a product "made in china" where QC "Quality Control" is beyond mediocre!!!

    Final Fantasy 9 on Game Pass for PC input issues.

    Im experiencing the same issue. The first mini game is basically unplayable as my inputs are not recognized unless i press the button several times and one happens to register. The game also won't let me see the k+m controls in game and in thw options
    screen, even when the controller is not connected. I can't choose between control types either so I'm stuck just seeing the controller inputs even when using the k+m.

    Xbox Elite 2 Bluetooth won't connect

    I randomly got the controller to stay connected. When I open the Xbox App it says "This controller is connected via Bluetooth. Connect a USB cable to configure it." When I click on the test button, none of the buttons are registering inputs. The "Game
    Controllers" settings menu just lists a generic "Bluetooth XINPUT compatible input device" and does not register any inputs there either.
