How to fix controller not working in Wuthering Waves

I was hoping to play Wuthering Waves with a controller, but when I connected my DualSense it was not to be. If you are facing the same problem, there is an easy solution using third-party software to fix the controller not working in Wuthering Waves.

The main reason you’re having trouble using your favorite controller in Wuthering Waves is that the game doesn’t support it. To solve this, you need to use third-party software that registers your controller as Xinput controller.
