I can't play games that need a controller

For some reason, when I try to play ANY game that needs a controller,  it just won't work!


P.S: Yes, the controller works, I have played lots of steam games with it.

That's odd. Are you launching the games from within the itch.io app, or directly? Are these native or browser games? If the latter, which browser? My own browser games for instance only have controller support in Firefox, because in Chromium it doesn't work the same way.

Come to think of it, what kind of controller do you have? Mine is a generic USB model, so that's what I support.

Both, Native, xbox 360 wired, generic USB

A friend of mine did report not being able to play a small test game I sent her with an XBox 360 controller, while it worked just fine with my generic. You'd think the driver and operating system take care of that, and the game just sees a controller, but apparently not.

Can you list the games you're having trouble with? I've played dozens of games with controller support from itch.io. Are you launching the game from the app or just downloading?
