PS4 controller issues


I’ve played DFO off and on for years and have always played with a ps4 controller and never had any issues up until the last maybe 6 months. All the forums I look at say you have to download all these softwares to even be able to play but I never once have. When I log in my character usually gets stuck running in one direction and it’s literally impossible to play. I’ve even checked the drivers and there’s no issues with them so I’m literally at a loss for words as to what’s going on. Laptop is running Windows 10 and if fully updated.
