Hopefully someone can help out here.
I tried to play Deadly Premonition today on Steam, but in the settings menu where you click on the controller, I could not select it. I dug around online and I am not sure what to do. The controller is a Xbox 360 Plug n Play kit. The driver seems to be the most current one and I am running Windows 8.1. I have tried setting the device as the "preferred" controller in the PC settings, and I have disabled the HID as those were both (separate) suggestions on how to fix it. I am to understand that while this happens with Deadly Premonition that there are other games out there (Dark Souls for example) that this happens with as well.
Does anybody have a work around for this issue? Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
