Dunno how active this thread is anymore but I've had my experience with fighting games on Steam ruined by the new update. Checking my input in Skullgirls training and the game won't read my UpBack or Downforward unless I mash the corner, so I can't reliably input those for movement/specials/supers. Checked my devices input tester and it had no problems, so I can't tell if the problem's somehow on Steam's end or my controller. I play on a Hori RAP4 and have had no problems with it until now. I tested inputs on Skullgirls, Them's Fightin' Herds, and GGXACPR and the problem was the same across all three.

Are you certain that it's a steam update causing it?

This only started occurring after the big "discord clone" update, and only occurs on steam games, and only with the HRAP4. Just checked with another stick (Madcatz PS3), and the inputs work fine. HRAP4 doesn't have input issues in other areas like the input test or emulators like fba.

Have you tried swapping out the joystick to see if the error occurs still? If the problem still persists,it’s either the update or the board on your stick. The latter might be more likely than the former. Because I’ve been swapping between a Sanwa’d Hori Rap4 and a Qanba Obsidian. My inputs have been pretty much the same.

It's something related to the update, because the issue is only occuring with games through steam, not through other programs like fightcade or standalone launchers.
EDIT: Just solved the problem. The controller options launcher starts up with predefined recognition for specific controllers, so mine was tagged as a PS4 controller. I just unchecked the box and my controls returned to normal.
