Settings wont save/controller support

Spartan132 shared this bug 5 years ago

Before you call me an idiot for using a controller on a PC game, hear me out. My left hand is screwed up. I can't do the WSAD thing very well. I need to use a controller for movement in games.

I know this game has controller support.... But I can't enable it in the options. In fact, I can't really change any of my settings. Any settings I try and change, it doesn't save. I click OK and it just reverts back to its default setting. Every time I boot the game up, I have to turn down the music and crank my FOV up. It's slightly annoying. When I try to enable my controller, It doesn't work. I pick my 360 controller and click OK. It immediately resets. I've looked everywhere. I cannot find a fix anywhere. I would really like to play this game.But at the moment, I'm just stuck with a problem with no visible solution.

I'm on Win10. My drivers are up to date. My controller works fine on Space Engineers... Which is on the same engine.......

SOS. Please help.

The developers obviously do not care about this situation. I have the exact same problem. So frustrating. I am ready to uninstall this pile of crap. Cannot believe I paid for this shit!


There is a problem with the SharpDX library, keen uses.

It appends zerobytes to the controller name, making it invalid to be saved or used (exception can be read within %appdata%\MedievalEngineers\MedievalEnineers.log).

There is an bugfix from peaceman (steamname), he published 10 DLLs fixing several bugs on PlanetsNoLag discord server, #how-to-fix-your-me-client. You need 2of them in this case.

Get the newest on the server. For now, these are the newest: ZIP file from discord (i' not gonna update this link).

However then the actual problems begin. I'm currenty trying getting a xbox controller running myself. See my story: The thing with controllers.

I do not yet give up.

Btw, you should try the KEEN discord #help-medieval channel. The community there is more helpful than this page.
