Moving forward or backwards is working fine, but trying to go left or right is non-responsive after the latest update. I don't know if its Steam, the PS4 controller, or something else. I'm not having the same problem on other games, just ESO and it doesn't seem to be consistent, it comes and goes, relogging on a character sometimes fixes it.

    Every time I use a crafting station I encounter the same problem. Reloading the UI is a temporary fix.

    Same problem here.

    Will be a major issue if this bug is included in today's big console update. :o

    Okay I see it, when you go to Refine materials the controls carry over when you leave the crafting station.

    While I’ll be somewhat relieved if the cause of this is indeed limited to refining at crafting stations, since I hadn’t been able to narrow it down myself, having to reload or relog after using them just to play the game normally is incredibly frustrating. I don’t know what they broke recently, but it’s got to be fixed.

    Even worse is that the D-pad seems to be shot as well as the stick, so you can’t do other basic things, like change amounts of currency that you’d like to deposit or withdraw from any personal or guild bank beyond the 0-9 in the singles column. There’s just no way to input left or right movement.

    This is probably the biggest of a host of gamepad mode issues I’ve encountered in the past couple of weeks. I sincerely hope consoles don’t get these issues too.

    Happens to me every time I try to use a crafting station as well (for any purpose... creating, deconning, refining). I'm glad it's not my controller breaking but it's highly annoying since I have to log out and back in again to fix it.

    Thank you for checking in!

    DS4 with XInput here, so the game should see it as an Xbox 360.

    The computer still recognizes the input regardless; it’s just the game that stops taking the left-right input. Relogging corrects the issue for me but is a clunky workaround.

    Thanks again. Hope we can get it sorted soon.

    Have played a big chunk of the Dragonhold main quest this afternoon without issue,but then went to do daily crafting writs and the bug occurs shortly after using crafting stations.

    I use an Xbox 360 controller on PC, but always swap to keyboard and mouse for crafting and banking, which may explain why I haven't experienced this issue.

    The problem is consistent across all platforms, it's safe to say it's not our controllers that's the issue, but the game's coding itself.

    Does anyone remember not being able to select your bait while trying to fish on the gamepad right after Elsweyr came out? :D

    PC NA Xbone elite controller did same last night while doing writs on one toon, switched accounts and it worked fine again, switched back and worked fine but didn't try on the original character I had the issue with. It was very odd the way it happened I was running doing writs and all was fine till after blacksmithing or woodworking and then right and left stopped responding. I had checked controls by hitting escape then controls it was still fine on that end and I tried remapping them to be sure. Right and left worked in the controls to be able to remap(in otherwords they were still recognized while in control menu) but still didn't work when I exited out back to game. But like I said I think the issue went away after switching accounts.

    The gamepad issue is still not fixed. I can't move left or right with the joystick walking or moving. I can't move left or right through the choices in the Creation window at the craft stations. Also, can't move left to change the amount of coin to deposit in bank.

    This issue happens for me if I try to multi-craft or multi-refine (when getting the menu that lets you select the amount of items to craft/refine by going left/right). After performing the crafting, or after refining items, going back and forth works, but not sideways. When going sideways, I hear the "clicking" sound that would otherwise sound when choosing item quantity or moving around in a menu.

    I play with a PowerA Enhanced gamepad (it is XB1 compatible) on PC-EU in gamepad mode. Turning off all addons does not resolve the issue.

    Steelseries Stratus Duo I purchased it three days ago. I've noticed problems after using the crafting station, after traveling via wayshrine and just random. The bear is also disappearing after these events but not necessarily at the same time as the controller stops working properly.

    Same here. Restarting the game from scratch sometimes fixes my issue, but more often than not I’m rebooting my PC. Horrible for someone who just switched over from console and is paying a sub.

    Just tested this on a couple of different characters by doing daily writs,and the joystick bug only occured when using the multicraft feature,so at least the bug can be mostly avoided by not using any of the mutli-craft features until the fix is applied.

    I'm using a PS4 controller on PCNA. Mine is just plugged in via USB cable with no outside programs to run it.

    My problem is mostly limited to crafting stations but it does rear its ugly head other places from time to time.

    This issue is exarcebated after this week's maintenance. In the past it happened rarely, now at every session, left joystic (I'm using PS4 controller and tried different ones as well) is responding in a staggered manner, and a click sound is heard, making character movement, or browsing maps, etc. impossible. Please let us know you' are looking into this @ZOS_GinaBruno @ZOS_JessicaFolsom

    Hey, any update on this? Just as I'm preparing to go into a trial, both the D-pad and left joystick stop working.

    Xbox pro controller, wired, no outside program, only ESO gamepadui.
    Unfortunately Necessary Signature:

    MAX CP, played since beta, yes I know the game. Also worked in software dev/ops so yes, I know what I'm talking about.

    If you read this and rolled your eyes, maybe you need to stop assuming women don't know ***.
