Wo Long Fallen Dynasty is an excellent addition to Team Ninja’s action RPG catalog, and we had a great time playing it. The PC version, sadly, isn’t up to par though, and there are a few technical problems. If you’re running into any Wo Long Fallen Dynasty controller issues, here is how you can fix those.

Wo Long Fallen Dynasty Controller Issues

For most users, Wo Long Fallen Dynasty should work with basically any controller right from the start, and you can even change the type of button prompts regardless of what controller you’ve plugged in. However, like with many other recent PC releases, some users can’t get their controllers to work, and it’s mostly due to Steam Input’s conflict.

Disable Steam Input

Disabling Steam Input will ensure that the native profiles of Wo Long Fallen Dynasty are loaded.

  • Make sure the game isn’t running
  • Open Steam and then open your Library
  • Here, right-click on the Wo Long Fallen Dynasty
  • Select Properties
Steam library > Properties
  • Now, select CONTROLLER at the left
  • Click the dropdown icon next to OVERRIDE FOR Like a Dragon: Ishin
  • Set it to “Disable Steam Input
Steam library > Properties > Controller > Disable Steam Input

Now, launch the game again, and your controller should be working properly.

PlayStation Users PSA: Use a Wired Connection

As usual, if you’re using a Dualshock 4, or DualSense controller, it’s preferred to have a wired connection. Wo Long Fallen Dynasty doesn’t have any Haptic or Adaptive Trigger features for the DualSense controller on PC, so it will behave normally.

  • Now, click on Controller in the list at the left
