PS5 Controller not working with Medal when Steam is active

Modified on Sat, 13 Feb 2021 at 02:19 PM

This issue is caused by Steam having proprietary drivers for their software which Medal cannot use.

Once Steam is launched, it will hook the driver to your controller and take exclusive use preventing other software being able to use your controller.

To stop this from happening:

  • Open Steam and go to Steam > Settings
  • Select Controller, then select General Controller Settings
  • Toggle Playstation Configuration Support off
