Fifa 16
How can I use the controller in Fifa 16? Fifa 16 and my PC recognize the controller as mouse. So I can´t choose the controller setup in Fifa 16. Can I change somewhere, that my PC and other games recognize the controller as controller?

same problem for me - even if i add fifa 16 to my steam library and change the config to standard gamepad, it won't work - i think it's because of the additional launcher window at the start of fifa.. i hope there will be a patch or workaround soon

Update: recently it started working out of nowhere.. but now it "emulates" 2 controllers at once.. very strange :D

Update 2: restartet computer, doesn't work anymore =/

I have similar problem

I have been trying to run FIFA 16 with controller as well and it seems that because fifa 16 launches fifaconfig.exe before going to the game, Steam looses control over it. That means that FIFA sees controller as mouse and keyboard and you can't change it. Pressing steam button on controller does not get you to steam config window - does nothing. Also I was unable to find command line to skip FIFA from entering fifaconfig.exe. I would appreciate any help if anyone got FIFA to run with Steam Controller as I am running out of ideas and would like to trial.

It's really bad news for me... because I wanted to buy this controller for FIFA, but know, if you say that controller doesn't work in FIFA... it doesn't make a sense :(

It may work, I just did not make it work. I am sure that there are some smart people who will figure this out sooner or later :D

I found something on reddit.com, can anyone check to see if it works?

"Steam overlay works on FIFA 16!

It's very easy to do. There is just one step you have to make sure you do for it to work.

Add fifa16.exe via the "Add A Non-Steam game" option in Steam.
Make sure Origin is CLOSED at this point. Completely. This is a necessary step or it will not work. You also have to make sure that Origin In-game (basically the Origin Overlay) is turned off. Its in Application Settings in the Origin client.
Run FIFA via Steam. Origin will open and the box to start the game/settings etc will show.
Click Play Game. The Steam Overlay works. FPS counter, screenshots, Steam friends, steam browser, etc. all accessible.

If you run FIFA via Steam with Origin open, the connection to the game is lost when you press "Play Game", for some reason it stays connected when you start the game with Origin closed first."

Are you sure it works for you? I followed it step by step, and yes the Steam overlay now works while playing FIFA, but the Steam Controller still only works as a keyboard/mouse and not a game controller.

Yea I figured that out after my comment haha. But I'm getting the same problem as other people. It's registering as two gamepads so all inputs are doubled and it makes FIFA impossible to play. I hope someone knows a solution.
