Fix Football Manager 2022 Controller Issues
Before we start with the main troubleshooting, let’s try the most basic method to fix this issue. Depending on which controller you are using to play Football Manager 2022, make sure that the controller support is enabled on your PC.
Update Your Controller Drivers
Just like any other external peripherals, there’s a chance that your computer doesn’t have the driver dedicated to your controller. That is one of the reasons why your controller is not working in Football Manager 2022.
If you know the manufacturer of your device, simply visit their website and download the drivers needed. You can even ask for their support for the correct driver version that you can use. If you can’t find the proper and correct controller driver for your device, you can use some third-party software that will automatically fetch the latest driver update for any available hardware connected to your PC. In our experience, we fixed the controller issues in Football Manager 2022 by using IObit’s driver booster or Driver Easy to automatically get the latest driver update for your PC.
Third-Party Controller Support
Another method to fix your controller is by using third-party controller software. There are a lot of gamepad controllers out there, but in this guide, we highly recommend the following as we have already tested them all.
