  • Enter the following: /UseNativeGaInput=true /UseNativeGaInputNoControllers=false

On Epic Games Store:

  • Toggle 'Additional Command Line Arguments'
  • Enter the following: /UseNativeGaInput=true /UseNativeGaInputNoControllers=false


Controller Not Recognized/Not Working

The launch options listed above may help with some controller problems as well.

If your controller isn’t detected by the game, try disconnecting all controllers and ensuring all controller devices are removed from the Device Manager. Then, reconnect your primary controller and try again. The game will always read the controller in slot 1.

Hades may also have issues with some wireless or bluetooth game controllers; turning off Vibration in the Settings menu may alleviate any issues.


Invisible Mouse

If your mouse cursor doesn't appear at all while playing Hades, make sure that you aren't running the computer program "f.lux". This program can cause compatibility issues with games in general, including Hades.
