EA Sports FC24- Controller is NOT WORKING | How to FIX

When it comes to controllers the Xbox controller is normally considered the best for Windows and for obvious reasons. The PlayStation controller, however, is the one that has most of these compatibility problems.

We need to understand where the problem is before we start fixing it. It could either be a Windows problem or a Steam problem.

There is a simple way to find out. Is the controller working in general? Does it work with other games? If no, follow these steps:

Windows Fix:

  • Press Windows key+ X and then go to Device Manager. 
  • Under Universal Serial Bus Controller option look for a yellow triangle with an exclamation mark beside the option USB Composite Device. 
  • If you find one, it means your PC cannot recognize that device.
  • In that case, you need to Right-click and select Uninstall device.
  • Unplug the controller and plug it back after a few seconds.
  • If it still does not recognize, repeat the step 2 more times.

If it fails every time, it means that the controller might be at fault. If it is a Bluetooth controller, try pairing the device again.

Steam Fix:

A lot of times I have seen Bluetooth controllers start working when you connect them directly. This could be because of a problem in the Bluetooth adapter or Steam itself. Only for certain games, I see that connecting the controller directly would actually make it work even if the Bluetooth adapter is fine.

If this does not work, follow these steps:

  • Go to the Steam option on the top left.
  • Go ahead and select Controller from the left panel.
  • Turn On  “Guide button focuses Steam

  • For Xbox Controllers, select  “Enable Steam Input for Xbox controllers” only.
  • For Playstation Controllers, select “Enable Steam Input for Playstation controllers” only.
  • For any other generic controller (apart from Xbox and PS) select “Enable Steam Input for generic controllers
  • Restart Steam.

If that does not help, then follow these:

  • Open Steam Library
  • Go to EA Sports FC24
  • Right-click on the game and select Properties
  • Click on Controller
  • Click on the drop-down icon for Override for EA Sports FC24 and select Enable Steam Input.
  • Restart Steam.

Epic Games and EA App Fix:

If you have purchased FC24 on EPIC GAMES or from the EA APP directly, you might have to add the game to Steam as a Non-Steam game to use the controller drivers from Steam.

  • Plug in the controller directly with a USB cable, when you are playing from EPIC GAMES or from EA APP.  Wireless controllers do not work with these apps.
  • Go to Steam Library
  • Select “Add a Game” at the bottom.
  • Then select “Add a Non-Steam game”.
  • Browse the options and select EA Sports FC24.
  • Then click on “Add Selected Program“.
  • Restart Steam and run FC24 from your Steam Library. Remember, to keep either Epic or EA App on while you start the game.

I am pretty sure these steps should easily fix the controller problem with the game.
