Controller Messed Up?

Postby dawsonsleeper » Sat Aug 19, 2017 9:43 am

I just bought a PowerA Xbox One wired controller yesterday because I had previously used a PowerA 360 controller and it was amazing, however the One controller was garbage. When I clicked on my left stick to shift up or right stick to shift down, sometimes it wouldn't work. I was riding a 125 at the time so it would work fine except for shifting up out of first or down out of 6th, but only sometimes, like once or twice a lap. I took it back to BestBuy and got a different one (same controller) and it does the same thing. Anybody got any ideas? At first I thought it was just online because that was the majority of the time it was happening but it happened to me once right before making this thread in a time trial, so I have no idea what's up. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

what do you mean by properly synced? I contacted Microsoft and they told me to download an app called xbox accessories and if the controller needed an update then that app would tell me and it didn't sa anything.

I recommend plugging the controller in via usb to install any drivers it might be missing. I never could get the microsoft app to work for me, but when i used a usb cable, some drivers auto installed and my controller started working.

If it's not working properly it didn't get all the drivers to transfer to your computer. Look up tutorials on youtube
