Controller Problems
I love this game, but I am using an Xbox One controller to play and I am experiencing problems.
Basically, the cursor shifts towards right/left by itself, and I tried adjusting the dead zone option of the controller in the in-game settings menu, but it didn't really fix my problem.

I've been trying reading around, but I didn't find any real fix about this :(
Can somebody help me?

Go into BigPicture, go to Dying Light, then Controller Configuration where you'd map your controller. Go to the right stick and if it has a little yellowish circle in the middle, you need to turn down the Output Anti-Deadzone and that worked for me. Hope this helps.

Yes.
It's not due to mouse conflict.

in case you have bad drivers
right-click the device in device manager and chose to update drivers , windows will connect tro microsoft website and install drivers.
you need to have "microsoft xbox one controller for windows". that's the name

i had this problem too before but it came from the gamepad stick who was damaged cause it did same in other game . so make sure you don't have a harware problem with your sticks.

I updated the drivers of the Xbox One controller and tried again, but the problem still persists.
Also: apparently Dying Light is the only game I experience such issues with.

Is this the only game with this problem?

Ok what you are saying is happening to me to. Quick movements tend to lag for a few. I think its the graphical settings that need a tweak.

Okay so I reduced the Shadow texture memory option to high from very high. It seems to have helped, now quickly turning left or right doesn't lag suddenly.

It's not a matter of lag, the cursor literally drifts on a side by itself.

When I turn the game on I only see the cursor momentarily befor ethe gamepad settings kick in. You really shouldn't see a cursor at all if you are playing fullscreen. Either way try running the game after disconnecting the gamepad. I imagine you probably refreshed the drivers for your xbox controller?
EZ Dec 15, 2017 @ 1:52pm 
Yes I did.
It's not like a cursor, just the center of the camera I mean.
The.Spaz. Dec 15, 2017 @ 8:11pm 
Then it sort of sounds like the issue I was having. Frequently if I turn the camera around left of right too quickly I would get stuck rotating in one direction for a few seconds before I regain control. Turned out I had to reduce to Shadowspace memory to high instead of very high. Seemed to eliminate the issue. You can try that but if its not working you will have to check things by piece by piece.

I would recommend turn the game down on its lowest settings. Take your controller out and see how it performs. Then plug it and see if the issue is there. then slowly start turning all other options on to their next highest setting and so on. Also while you are at it why not post your PC specs. Might help narrowing something down.

Go into BigPicture, go to Dying Light, then Controller Configuration where you'd map your controller. Go to the right stick and if it has a little yellowish circle in the middle, you need to turn down the Output Anti-Deadzone and that worked for me. Hope this helps.

Dude, this worked like a charm!
You're a life saver!

This should be highlighted for anyone having this problem!
Thank you so very much <3
