I found the answer now. The problem mostly happened if you have more than one controller. You must set up each controller with the same settings or at least set your controller settings with controller 1 as the default controller. You can go to kick off and set each controller with the same settings. If this still doesn’t work, go to the customize control, and use controller 1 to set up the settings, it should be working.
