LogitechF710 (Xinput) Controler works evreywhere but not in Singleplayer
I tried this Controller in several games and it just worked perfectly! Now with Portal 2 CoOp it also works without any problems. I can also navigate with the controller in the menu but I couldn't control anything in the Singleplayer!
I also tried commands like exec joy_preset_1.360.cfg or exec config360 or exec 360controller

Do anyone have the same problem or even a solution ?

just the opposite for me, used to play F710 wireless gamepad in every bit of portal 2, including community maps. then one day when ever i return to main menu exiting community maps only.

gamepad stops functioning, and have to use keyb/mouse to navigate from there.

being like this every since, put in a forum post about it. no one replied. tested on 2 alts pcs. same problem. xinput or direct doesnt matter same problem. fyi you leave it on Xinput for most.

n the console it mentions nothing about it failed controller support, i dont get this problem or any of problem in any other game but this little bit in portal 2.

highly wierd, it has to be something they did in an update. as far as i can tell thats where the problem goes.

even have direct comms with a valve employee tests gamepad functions on games regularly and told her about it, and still i get no response.

will send an email to valve

because have been waiting for 6months+ for it to be fixed. i decided to stop playing anyway, as the controller joysticks are not up to handling quick feedback pointing, in a high paced game such as portal 2, n rather just let the content build for longer for when the steam controller comes out, in australia.

as its likely to be all well n good with that hardware. n if it isnt, it will at least raise the profile of the problem then.

the problem here is that you set your controller to the "Player 2" slot, so even if there isn't a second player you still won't be able to use the controller for first player. Just do a quick google search on how to change your controller to "Player 1" via console commands and you'll be good to go.
