In some cases, your controller might not work even though the game supports it.

How to fix Spider-Man Remastered controller not working

To fix Spider-Man Remastered controller not working, you can try to:

  1. Disconnect any other controllers that might be connected to your system.
  2. Disable Steam Input: Right-click the game in Steam, select “Properties”, choose “Controller”, and select “Disable Steam Input”.

These two methods are recommended by Nixxes on Steam.

Nixxes Software is the developer of Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered.

The game also supports Steam Input, which allows you to use any controller and enable controller reconfiguration.

You can configure your controller in the General Controller Settings in the Controller section of the Steam Settings menu.

In some cases, Steam Input might not function properly.

If that’s the case, you need to disable it.

“Dualsense Haptic Feedback and Adaptive trigger is not working like on the PS5 version of the game”.

“R2 on the PlayStation 4 controller isn’t working for me”.

“Game is crashing to desktop when I use DualSense after 1-2mins gameplay. No crashes on DS4 controller”.
