Controller Issues
UPDATED 5-3-2017

The controller support should be all good now. If the controller is recognized and configured properly in Steam Big Picture mode then the game should function with the controller.

If you still have issues please try the following:

1. Confirm Steam's Big Picture mode recognizes your controller and it's configured
2. If you have more then one controller plugged in then unplug those you're not using
3. Disable any extra xinput emulation drivers or anything, controllers should be plug and play
4. If your controller still doesn't function properly you can use http://generalarcade.com/gamepadtool/ to configure your controller

The controller not working in STEAM but works in GOG.

If you are having problems with a PS3 controller on Windows, try following this video for setting up the necessary drivers etc..: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TpSaOJJIun8
This setup will allow your PS3 controller to be interpreted as an Xbox 360 controller, making it compatible with any game that supports Xbox 360 controllers.

Both wired XBOX360 controller and Steam Controller are not working.

Additional behavior:
On both Steam Controller and XBOX360 Controller, I am able to get to the opening screen and press A on both controllers to move to the menu. The dpad functions for navigating the menu, but no other buttons appear to work to move to the next set of options, whatever they may be.

Windows 10.

Attempted with both Big Picture on, off, and with different combinations of both controllers plugged in, only one plugged in, etc.

I did all the things you wrote, nothing worked. The controllers are fine everywhere else except Hyper Light Drifter. Good luck finding the issue! :I

Controllers I tried:
Xbox360, PS4 and PS3 (all with USB cable, system is Windows 10)
I also tried DS4Windows and other third party tools. No luck with anything.

Same thing. Did everything listed. Tried with Steam/Xbox1 controllers on 2 systems both running windows 10.
Not working.

Tried it on Big Picture Mode with a Wired USB 360 Controller.

Controller works in navigating through Big Picture Mode, but ceases to get recognized in Hyper Light Drifter launched through Big Picture Mode.

EDIT: Forgot to mention other games that use a controller work fine through Big Picture Mode, so I am certain it's the game, and not the controller.

hopefully a patch comes out soon for this, loved the demo and got through it, my controler works with the demo so i dont see why it wouldnt work on the full game

This is kinda crazy. I'm having the same problem with both DS4 and a 360 pad.

This wouldn't even be a big issue (for me at least) if only k&m controls weren't bad.

Reinstall microsoft visual с++ and will work.
sunmachine Mar 31, 2016 @ 9:10am 
Elaborate. Uninstall + Reinstall MS VC++ Redist? Assuming you mean a distributable package, which redist do you specifically mean?

To the uninitiated, try this:

I can verify repeating this fix, but even shorter:

- Close HLD.
- From Windows control panel, open up your Programs and Features dialog to Add/Remove Programs.
- Look for Microsoft Visual C++ 2015 Redistributable. You may see two versions: one for x64, one for x86.
- Right click on each, select "Change", and opt to "Repair".
- Restart your game.
