Using USB Controller with Shield and Moonlight doesnt work


Hello guys,

I am using the moonlight app to stream games to any of my devices. But have one problem: The Controllers I am using dont work in game. The moonlight app is recognizing it and I can navigate in the menu. After I launch the game, I need to use my keyboard and mouse. Do I have to install something on the paperspace machine? I have installed the driver through usb forwarding, but that didnt fix anything.



You should take a look at this script, which installs ViGEmBus for better controller support. I’m not sure if that comes pre-installed on Paperspace machines. Only use it for a Server 2016 instance, as otherwise it will create a ton of problems.

If that doesn’t work try streaming through Parsec.
