Controller not working

If you start game without turn on gamepad its not working. I have to close the game and open it again.

My PS5 Controller registers with Steam Input. However, when I go to use it to play the game, nothing happens. It does not function. I see other people have had this problem too. It works perfectly fine with all my other games. I will be forced to refund due to this issue. I truly hope that this issue is fixed in the near future. I would love to play the game.

same here, when i try to use my ps5 controller nothing happens
