Fix: Controller Not Working on PC
This guide will walk you through the steps necessary to make the controller (gamepad, joystick) function with Mafia: Definitive Edition.
Method #1 (DS4 Controller)
To achieve PS4 controller functionality on a PC, you’ll need the help of a piece of online software. That software is called DS4Windows, and as the name suggests, it has been specifically developed for this exact purpose. It works by tricking your PC into thinking that the Dualshock 4 connected is actually an Xbox 360 controller, which is already compatible with a Microsoft product. To download it, head to the DS4Windows website.
Set up DS4Windows
The downloaded file should be labeled as ‘DS4Windows.exe’. Click on it, and from here, it’ll begin the set-up process until a pop-up menu appears, asking you to choose where you want your settings and profiles to be saved – all standard stuff. Following this, click the ‘Install the DS4 Driver’ option, and the software will get to work making any plugged-in PS4 controller compatible with Windows 8, Windows 8.1, and Windows 10. If you’re still running Windows 7, you’ll also need to click ‘Install 360 Driver’.
Connect your PS4 controller to the PC
It’s what we’ve all been waiting for: Connect your PS4 DualShock 4 controller to your PC or laptop. You can do this using any USB-Micro USB cable or connect the gamepad wirelessly via Bluetooth. Not all PCs and Laptops will have a Bluetooth receiver built-in, but it’s relatively easy to find one that will plug into your set-up.
Then it’s just about getting the two to talk as you would do with a Dualshock 4 and PS4 console. Hold the center PlayStation button, and this will force DS4Windows to open its Action Centre – then click ‘Bluetooth’ and select ‘Wireless Controller.’
