Just bought The waliking dead season 1 off Steam and it won't launch with my controller connected. I only play games with controller support so if it doesn't work I'm asking for a refund. Any one have suggestions on how to fix this?
On Windows 8 the game crashes if joysticks/gamepads are connected. That bug is fixed in Windows 8.1, available for free in the Windows 8 Store.
If you don't want to upgrade yet, you can try an unofficial workaround. In short, by downloading and extracting this zip file, and copying the dinput8.dll next to the WalkingDead101.exe, you should be able to use the controller normally. Make sure you delete that dinput8.dll after updating to Windows 8.1, to avoid possible problems in the future.
