Hello, Ryan,


Thank you for your report, however I wasn't able to reproduce your issue. I can select Controller without any issues. Could you please provide us with your log? You can access your log files by typing %appdata% into your Windows search bar and you will be redirected to the hidden Roaming folder. After that just follow: \Roaming\SpaceEngineers.


Please try also following steps:

  • Verify your game files in Steam
  • Delete your SpaceEngineers.cfg file (It means your game configuration will be deleted.)
  • Restart Steam
  • Reinstall game
  • Make sure your operating system is fully updated


Please let us know if it helped you.


Kind regards

Also having this issue, attempting to click the Xbox controller (I am using a steam controller but it shows as xbox in Space engineers) immediately crashes the game. I have done the following -


Turned on, and off Xbox controller support for steam, no difference.

Turned on, and off Steam input controller setting, also no difference

Verified game files and passed. Reinstalled game, no difference.

Deleted SpaceEngineers.cfg, No difference.


Thank you!

Hello, I am also having this problem.


I played this game last year with my controller and it worked fine. Took a break and booted it back up.


Whenever I select the XBOX 360 controller in the drop down menu it hard crashes immediately.

I do get a bug report screen though.


Its an ASTRO C40 even though it shows up in game as an XBOX 360 controller. It shouldnt matter but just trying to give details.

Ok I found a workaround, get out of big picture mode on steam. Right click space engineers and go to properties. Turn the steam control setting off. Apparently the steam controller settings and the space engineers settings are fighting with one on other.

This worked!


Yeah looks like theres some conflict with the steam controller stuff. I tweaked it for another game a few months ago and forgot about it. enabling the generic controller support fixed it.

I'm having the same issue where the game crashes as soon as I select xbox controller in the Space Engineers settings. I do get the bug report screen sometimes though unlike OP.


This only appears to happen when using remote play. I've tested it on my smart tv as well as the home theater PC with exactly the same crash. If I try to use an xbox controller directly on my gaming PC without remote play however everything works fine, both in big picture mode and normal.


I play other games with remote play with no issues so it is definitely specific to space engineers. Has the major release they speak of already come out but failed to fix the problem or is there another one in the pipeline that will fix these issues?


Thanks

Game doesn't bomb out now but the controller does not register any inputs in game.


The controller is working in big picture mode so its doesn't seem to be a connectivity issue, only a problem in game.
