What else can be done to fix the controller issue?
There’s also a fix which is a bit confusing. But since it has helped a player, you can try this as well.
the game logic when entering a park game or other online game modes is like this “The first option that comes in the ‘Key binding’ menu is the one going to be used”, that’s it works for some people to unplug their keyboards before launching the game. In my case, in the ‘Features’ menu, when going to the ‘Key binding’ option, ‘Unified Virtual HID’ was the first to show up, before my controller and keyboard, which is part of the Unified Remote application. I uninstalled all virtual devices under “Unified Virtual HID” from Device Manager and the Unified Remote application and that fixed it. – hateehctep
So, open the Features menu > Key Binding menu and note the first option. If it is a keyboard, unplug your keyboard. If it is something else, disconnect it from your system. The first option should be your controllers. This will fix the problem.
