[Bug report] Emulator recognizing controllers as keyboard
#1
Hello.
A few months ago i started playing games on the PCSX2 with a generic PC controller and it worked just fine, but about a week ago i was playing a game and pressed Start and the game just closed instantly. I went to see the controls and realized that it was recognizing the Start button as the Esc key, in fact it was recognizing all controller buttons as keyboard keys, and as you guys know, the Esc key instantly closes the game, so this made it impossible for me to play anything.
I thought it was a problem with the controller, so i bought a new one, from another brand, but it had the same problem. It's also not a problem with the USB port, i already tried all of them and it was all the same.

Please post the contents of the emulog.txt file after the problem occurs. The file can be found in "My Documents\PCSX2\logs" for the installer version or in "PCSX2\logs" for the portable/binary version.

Please make sure to enclose your emulog in code tags like so (remove the empty space on the closing code tag!):

You mean if it's open at the same time as PCSX2? Nope. But when it is open it recognizes the controller, is that the issue?

I never open Steam and the emulator at the same time, but when Steam IS open, it recognizes my controller, idk if that's the issue.
Oh, but if the issue is that it's running, even when it's not open, then yes, Steam always starts running by itself as soon as i turn on the PC. But i installed Steam long before PCSX2 and this problem just started a few days ago.

Run Steam with the emulator. Use the controller settings to configure your controller in Steam. I just did this yesterday actually for a different reason. Then run the emulator with Steam running in the background.

I have to open Steam and then open the emulator, let the two open at the same time, and then Steam's controllers settings will work on the emulator? Did i understand that correctly?
Edit: If it's that, it doesn't work. Just tried it.

While steam is working(I think even in background)it is executing Esc when you press start so make sure it is turned off
This question was asked many times and it was always because of steam

Well, i just stopped Steam from running at the task manager, and now it seems like it solved the problem. It's a really weird solution and i have no idea how Steam caused that, but i also feel like an idiot for not trying this by myself lol. Thanks a lot everyone!
