Eternight has support for PlayStation and Xbox controllers with correct UI button prompts. However, to get the PlayStation controllers working properly

  • Select Properties
Steam > Library > Eternights > Properties
  • Now, select CONTROLLER at the left
  • Click the dropdown icon next to OVERRIDE FOR Eternights
  • Set it to “Disable Steam Input
Eternights > Properties > Controller > Disable Steam Input

While PlayStation controller support has been improving on Steam quite a bit, you’ll still need to use a wired connection to get the most out of your DualShock 4 or DualSense controller.

  • Click on Steam at the top left corner of the client, and select Settings
