    Unfortunately, we had to temporarily disable XInput because it was causing a crashing issue. We're hoping to bring it back in the future.

    FWIW Dedserg I have been able to play LotRO through my SteamLink using a Steam Controller. As I understand it, it's straight up emulating mouse and keyboard controls, so possibly that would work for your needs?

    I have used an XInput device to play this game for a decade and have not had a single performance issue related to it. I am grateful that you too find this unfortunate. Perhaps you can provide more information that will help us better understand the situation. With player feedback, maybe we can find a way to resolve this issue more quickly. Thank you for your sincere concern.

    To update: We have someone working on this, so the fix should be in fairly quickly.

    Fix please

    I have been playing since Beta. My 2 daughters have joined me. One of my daughters is disabled and so we use gamepads to play. We never had any issues. We appreciate you working hard to fix this!

    I enabled XInput detection and restarted the client, and it still doesn't work. I tried this a couple times. Has anyone else had success?

    Though this may be obvious, I just want to reiterate that it still does not work after today's update.

    all works, you need to tick in the settings of the mouse

    I'm afraid I'm not sure what you mean. I have the box ticked for "Enable XInput Detection." Are you referring to a different setting?

    I'm encouraged to hear it is working for you! I will keep trying to find a solution!

    I've had some success. I can get LOTRO to detect XInput through Steam's software. This worked with both a Steam Controller and a generic USB gamepad. But no matter what I tried, I could not get LOTRO to detect XInput natively through Windows without Steam. I'm not sure why it's working this way, but I'm grateful that I've at least found a way to make it work.

    Angry

    It's not working for me either. I checked the box, have windows 7 and an XBox360 controller and a logitech F310 controller. Lotro recognizes the directional pad on the controllers, but not the analog sticks, nor even the ABXY buttons. What else do I need to do here? Seems overly complicated. I plug in USB controller, Windows 7 detects it fine and I can test it out in Windows 7's control panel, have the box checked for input detection in Lotro, restarted the lotro client....now what?

    I can advise you to try the program Xpadder

    Weird

    Ok I am using the same xbox controller as before. I enabled xinput and restarted. Here is the weird part: On my asus laptop it worked and I needed to reprogram via keymapping. On my dell pc after enabling xinput, it automatically programmed everything. On my Acer laptop I can't get the controller to work at all. Any ideas?

    Issues with Controller Disconnection

    So... I have realized that ever since the update that messed up the XInput in the game, controllers don't work as smooth as they did before... Thing is: if my controller gets disconnected during a game session (for ANY reason whatsoever...) I need to RESTART the game all over in order for it to get recognized again... and that is JUST A PAIN... Is anyone else having this same problem?
    Could anyone please fix that problem?? I remember not having this problem before this ''update'' that was supposed to improve things for X input (only it DID NOT!) happened... So Please, I'm really thinking I'm alone in this one here... If anyone had this same problem, please reply here and let's add to the number of requests to fix it.
    Thnx

    Instead of game restart, try unplugging the controller and re-plugging it in to see if that works. Won't have to re-start the game that way.
