    Xbox 360 controller not working

    In the past couple of days there have been issues with my Microsoft wired Xbox 360 controller not working anymore with certain Steam games, PCars is one of them. I know it's not a problem with the controller itself or drivers because the controller worked fine with Steam games until a couple of days ago but now all of a sudden it isn't working anymore with certain games (in Project Cars it only works in the menu but not on track), and the controller works fine with non-Steam games.

    Any ideas what is causing this issue and when it will be solved?

    Have you cleared all the Steam controller settings ?
    Steam -> Settings-> Controller -> General Controller Settings

    i7 4770K - ASUS Z87-A - 16Gig DDR3 (2x 8G Crucial Ballistix PC3-12800) - ZOTAC GTX1080Ti FE with EVGA Hybrid Cooler - iiiyama ProLite B2783QSU - Oculus Rift CV1 - Samsung 840 250G SSD , WD 320G Blue, WD 2T Black, OCZ 120G Vertex 2 SSD, LiteOn iHAS122 DVD-RW - Creative Audigy 4 - Creative 5.1 speaker system - Logitech G19 - MS HABU Gaming Mouse - Fanatec GT3 RS V2 + CSP V3 + SSH Shifter - Windows 10 Home (64 bit).

    Second machine used for additional testing. i7-4790T - Asus H97-Plus - 16G DDR3 PC-12800 - Gigabyte GTX1060 - iiyama Prolite E2607WS - Oculus Rift CV1 - W10 Pro (64 bit) - xbox360 pad or Logitech DFP (all at stock speeds)

    HTPC - For testing of Steam Big Picture Mode (Hopefully from Media Portal 2) - i5-4590S - ASUS H81M-C - 8G DDR3 PC-10666 - Gigabyte GTX1050Ti - Windows 10 Home (64 bit) - xbox360 pad

    I've checked every setting there is but PCars1 & AC1 still don't work with controller. rF1 & GTR2 work fine though, same for several other games.

    I know it's not helpful, but PC1 is still working fine with a wired Xbox 360 controller here.

    Have you tried changing the controller settings to mouse/keyboard, saving, quit the game, come back in and change back to the xbox controller (unfortunately the controller config is bundled into the main save file, so deleting that would be last resort)

    It seems Steam client got updated, everything went back to normal in PCars1 & AC, controller is working fine in both games, no need to change any settings. There's still issues with one of my fighting games though.
