How to Fix Controller Tales of Arise on PC

Controller users have had issues with their game not working in the proper way, and many want to know how they can fix it. Since this is an excellent title better suited for controllers than mouse/keyboard setups do anyways; presents quite a big inconvenience on the Steam platform where players are experiencing these problems at all times of day (and night).

If you’re like many gamers, you’ve been struggling with Tales of Arise’s controller setup since the game launched. Here is my guide to help fix the issue!

How to Fix Controller on PC

There are 2 methods to address the controller issue in Tales of Arise.

Edit Steam controller setting

This method is recommended by a Steam user, /Dfactor:

  1. If you are on Steam Beta, opt-out of it. Go to Settings > Account > Change > set to NONE – Opt out of all beta programs.
  2. Save and restart Steam
  3. Now, If you have multiple Steam Library folders, then go to Settings > Downloads > Steam Library Folders > Add Library Folder. Select your main Steam Library folder.
  4. Open Steam and go to your Library.
  5. Right-click on Tales of Arise > Controller > Set ‘Override for Tales of Arise’ to Enable Steam Input.
  6. Launch Tales of Arise, and start the game.
  7. If you are starting a ‘New Game’, then the settings menu will come up first. Select Steam Controller Settings from there.

Use a DLL file

The 2nd method involves using steam_api64.dll DLL file. Download the DLL file here, and then follow these steps:

  1. Go to the installation folder for Tales of Arise.
  2. Open Engine > Binaries >ThirdParty > Steamworks > Steamv149 > Win64.
  3. Paste the DLL file into the folder you just opened.

After this, your controller will work with Tales of Arise normally.
