Sackboy: Big Adventure is the latest title from the PlayStation exclusive catalog to hit PC. The game is released now on Steam and the Epic Games Store and also has many exclusive features for PC. This is another great port that gives players enough options to make full use of their hardware, but some players encounter some technical issues. If you want to fix the Sackboy A Big Adventure controller problem on your PC, here’s how you can do it.
Fix Sackboy A Big Adventure controller issue
Sackboy A Big Adventure supports multiple controllers on PC and can be fully played using the keyboard and mouse as well. Despite the support, some Steam users can’t seem to get their controllers to work properly with the title, which can be quite frustrating. This is not exactly the game’s fault, rather, Steam Input is getting in the way.
Fortunately, this can easily be fixed with a small tweak in Steam, and you can follow the steps below to do so.
- Make sure the game is not running
- open up steam and then open your Library
- Here, right click the Sackboy Big Adventure
- Choose Properties
- Now choose CONTROLLER on the left
- Click the menu icon next to it TRADE FOR Sackboy Big Adventure
- Set it to “Disable Steam Input” (or Disable Steam Input)
Now, relaunch the title, and this time, you’ll see that the game properly loads controller profiles natively present instead of relying on Steam Input. This is a common conflict we’ve seen before in recent PlayStation releases, including Uncharted, Spider-Man Remastered, and even God of War.
Use a wired connection for Dualsense functions
Like many other PlayStation releases, Sackboy A Big Adventure also features plenty of haptic feedback and dynamic trigger effects. To make sure those work, you’ll need to use a wired connection. This was confirmed on the official PlayStation blog about the PC release. Playing the game wirelessly with a Dualsense controller won’t allow you to fully utilize it.
Check Detected Controllers
Also, it’s a good idea to make sure your controllers are picked up by Steam. You can check this on Steam by following the steps below.
- click on steam at the top left corner of the client, and select Settings
I also recommend having one controller connected at a time to avoid any necessary conflicts. This doesn’t happen that often, but it’s an extra step to ensure a smoother experience.
