Also there is an issue with having to hit a button like 10 times before it registers in game (sometimes) and then it shoots out 10 commands at once. It works in POLviewer with/without Windower, and FFXI without Windower, but the moment I run the game with Windower it stops working. So it's definitely that file that is messing everything up for my controllers. Maybe I will try my PS4 controller for the time being and see if it works but I would love to find an updated Xinput file or something so I can use my xbox 360 controller with triggers. Edit: You said you may have to quit. I can't use my triggers now which will suck ass for macros and I need to find a fix for that. If you are using a Steam controller, make sure Steam is set to Run as Administrator as well. That controller eventually wore completely out and I bought a new one.

Looks like you're using new Reddit on an old browser. I've never used my DS4 wireless with FFXI. I don't know about the USB port but the controller does work perfectly with all other games. Click advanced, and make sure the computer is receiving information from the controller. http://www.ffxiah.com/forum/topic/47135/ffxi-switch-monitor/2/. So if you plug it in the front, you might try the back so that it uses a separate root hub. Make sure everything is set to Run as Administrator - Windower, FFXI, POL, every executable that is touched when running the game. The game is not registering the controller at all under the config. From my own configs for a DS4, I don't have Xinput checked when using it wired. I was just using the XInput check box for the 360 controller.

It has worked for me, and I'm currently using an XB1 wireless controller. If you for any reason disconnect the controller while the game is on, you'll need to restart the game. I honestly dunno if I could since I started on PS2 years ago and have played with a controller the entire time. But I noticed that my Roccat mouse registered as a game controller in device manager. This first one might not be needed, but I found that when I had issues and thought I would just cover it in case you need it. Just for note, there should be no benefit to buying the game on Steam if you already have it, even for controller issues.... That aside, could it be an issue with the USB port? Active nearly two decades, FFXI has over a dozen active servers, receives monthly updates, and is tied to Nexon's unreleased Final Fantasy XI R mobile project. For me it was getting Windower not in the FFXI directory. I have tried PS4 wired (and wireless with the adapter), XBox One wired (and with the adapter), PS3 wired and also XBox 360 wired for windows controllers. I’ll try the administrator suggestion, but let me know if you figure it out. It does work under the POL config, just not FFXI config (same as all other controllers I had issues with). Now another weird thing is that after I uninstalled/reinstalled the game and still could not get any other controllers to work with it except the worn out PS4 one I bought the game on steam to see if it was easier to get your controllers recognized on there. In FFXI config, I enabled xinput and disabled hatswitch. None have worked except the PS4 controller. I moved the Xinput file back into my Tools and immediately the controller stopped working again (whether I select xinput or not). Also all of these controllers worked perfectly fine with every other game I own. Then I play. Active nearly two decades, FFXI has over a dozen active servers, receives monthly updates, and is tied to Nexon's unreleased Final Fantasy XI R mobile project. Restart the computer and after it is fully booted plug the Xboxone controller in and let it install. It's almost like I can only have 1 controller working at a time and would need to maybe delete the entire existence of all other controllers? If your controller is plainly not working in game, but works in FFXI Config when setting it up: While under gamepad settings: Hit the very bottom "default setting" for config, this should enable camera/movement options.
