Konami Digital Entertainment, the developers, are not ready to give up yet. But, they are failing to keep their promises. Although an update to fix all the reported issues was promised by the end of this month, the release date for the same was pushed into November. Of course, it is a lot for Konami as well. So, they will need a lot of time and patience to fix the game entirely. Anyway, let’s try and fix the controller issue for you.
Follow these steps:
1) Launch Steam. Find eFootball 2022 in your Game Library. Right-click on it and select Properties.
2) Firstly, navigate to the Controller tab. Click on the drop-down list arrow and select Enable Steam Input option.
3) Above the drop-down list, you will see a highlighted option for Controller General Settings. Click on it.
4) Check the boxes next to Generic Gamepad Configuration Support, PlayStation Configuration Support, and Xbox Configuration Support. Guide Button Focuses Steam option should also remain checked.
