Xbox Elite Wireless Controller Series 2 settings for Star Wars Jedi Survivor

Star Wars Jedi: Survivor can be played with the Xbox Elite Wireless Controller Series 2. To see what settings you should be using for this gamepad when playing the action-adventure game on the PC, Xbox Series X or Xbox Series S, you can take a look at this guide from Seeking Tech.

P1, P2, P3 and P4 Button Assignments

You can find the default Xbox button layout for Jedi Survivor below:

  • Left Analog Stick: Move Character
  • Right Analog Stick: Move Camera
  • Y: Heavy Attack or Special Attack
  • B: Evade or Drop
  • A: Jump
  • X: Attack
  • LB: Parry or Block
  • LT: Force Pull
  • RB: Focus
  • RT: Force Push
  • Left Analog Button: Sprint
  • Right Analog Button: Interact or Target
  • Left Analog Button and Right Analog Button: Force Slow
  • Up Directional Pad Button: Heal
  • Down Directional Pad Button: BD-1 Scan
  • Left Directional Pad Button: Lightsaber Stance 1
  • Right Directional Pad Button: Lightsaber Stance 2
  • RB and Triangle: Lift
  • RB and Circle: Confuse
  • RB and X: Slam
  • RB and Square: Companion Combat Assist
  • Menu: Open Menu
  • View: Map or Shortcut

The Xbox Elite Wireless Controller Series 2 offers four back paddles. In the Mapping menu of the controller, we recommend that you assign the P4 Paddle to the Left Analog Button. By doing so, you can use the back paddle to run instead of pressing down on the left analog stick.

We also recommend assigning the P2 Paddle to the Right Analog Button. This should make it easier to switch targets during combat as you no longer have to press down on the right analog stick.

You can assign the remaining P1 and P3 Paddles to any other buttons you feel like. You can use them to switch lightsaber stances, heal, use BD-1 scan or other actions.

For further customization, you can select the Edit Controls option from the Controller section of the Options menu in Star Wars Jedi Survivor to reassign the buttons to your liking.

Trigger Locks

When it comes to the LT and RT buttons, we suggest that you move the sliders for both all the way to the bottom on the backside of the Xbox Elite Wireless Controller Series 2. This should make the Force Push and Force Pull actions more responsive.

You can further tune the LT and RT buttons from the Triggers menu of the gamepad.

Stick Deadzones

You can also use the Left Stick and Right Stick menus of the Xbox Elite Wireless Controller Series 2 to adjust the deadzones of both analogs if you feel that moving the character and/or looking around feels sluggish.

Furthermore, you can adjust the sensitivity of the right analog stick from the Controls section in the Options menu when you are playing Jedi Survivor.

How to fix Star Wars Jedi Survivor frame rate problems on Xbox Series X

When playing Star Wars Jedi: Survivor on your Xbox Series X, you may notice that the frame rate isn’t as stable as you would like. To see how you can improve the performance of this game running on your console, you can take a look at this troubleshooting article from Seeking Tech.

1. For the first step, we suggest that you update the game if you haven’t done so already. The development team from Respawn Entertainment admitted that the game did not launch at a polished state.

As a result, they should be working hard at optimizing the performance for the Series X as well as the other platforms. Thus, you should make sure you have the latest patch installed.

To manually check if a new title update is available on Xbox, you need move the cursor over to the Jedi Survivor on the home menu of the console. Afterwards, press the Menu button on the controller and then select “Manage game and add-ons” from the pop-up window.

From the Manage – Star Wars Jedi: Survivor screen, you can then select Update.

2. If the frame rate remains inconsistent after the latest patch, then make sure you have Variable Refresh Rate enabled if your TV or monitor supports it. This feature will help with smoothing out the stutters, as well as screen tearing, if the frame rate drops to as low as 40 frames per second.

Once you enable VRR from your screen’s settings, you need to open the Settings menu on your Xbox Series X. From there, you need to go to General > TV & display > Video modes. You should then make sure that the “Allow variable refresh rate” setting is enabled from the General – Video modes menu.

3. We also recommend that you disable the Usage Sharing feature in Jedi Survivor.

In order to do so, head over to the Options menu in the game. From there, select Extras on the left side and then make sure that Usage Sharing is set to Off on the right side of the same screen.

By disabling this feature, you may be able to improve the frame rate of the game by a little bit.

4. Turning off the chromatic aberration, film grain and/or motion blur may also help make the frame rate run smoother. You can find the settings to do so, by opening the Options menu in the game and then selecting Visuals.

5. Restarting Star Wars Jedi: Survivor and/or your Xbox Series X may be helpful as well. This is due to the Quick Resume or Sleep Mode features potentially causing the performance in Jedi Survivor and other games to dip.

To restart the game, you need to press the Xbox logo button on the controller, move the cursor over to the game’s icon and then press the Menu button. Afterwards, select Quit from the pop-up window. Once the software has closed, open it again.

In order to restart your Series X, press and hold the Xbox logo button. Afterwards, select Restart Console from the power menu.

How to fix ‘bypassed certain story elements’ glitch in Star Wars Jedi Survivor

When playing Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, you may encounter an unexpected error that states the following:

  • “You have seemed to have bypassed certain story elements. Continuing to play from this point may encounter issues. If you choose to proceed anyway, loading into future Saves from the Title Screen will give you the option to reload prior to this point.”

You may also be given two options. The Load option has the following description:

  • “Continue from the last good save. You may lose some progress but will avoid game breaking issues.”

The Proceed Anyway option has the following information:

  • “Continue in the broken state. This is not recommended. Things will likely be broken.”

To see how you can fix this potentially game breaking glitch, you can take a look at this troubleshooting article from Seeking Tech.

1. Based on our testing, this bug commonly appears when going from the Derelict Dam meditation point to the Southern Reach mediation point.

Normally, you should see the Bogling creatures just before the wall that requires you to double jump. If you don’t see them, then you need to respawn from the Derelict Dam meditation point and then proceed to navigate towards the Southern Reach mediation point again.

It may take several attempts to get the game to properly load in the Boglings. Once you see these creatures, then they should indicate that the game’s story has properly progressed. As a result, you should no longer see the “bypassed certain story elements” error message pop up from this point forward.

2. If the aforementioned solution did not work, then you can try power cycling your console if you are playing on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X or Xbox Series S.

On the PS5, you need to turn off your console, unplug its power cord and then wait for at least 60 seconds. Afterwards, re-plug the power cable and then turn the system back on.

On the Series X or Series S, you need to press and hold the power button on the console for at least 10 seconds. Once the console has shut down, you can press the same button to turn it back on.

After power cycling your gaming system, try to play the game again to see if you are still getting the same warning notification.

3. On the PC, you can try repairing or verifying the game files.

If you are playing from the EA App, then you need to go the Library section of the application and then click Manage on the game’s icon. You can then select Repair.

On Steam, you need to open the Library section and then click on the gear icon from the product page of Star Wars Jedi Survivor. Next, you need to select “Properties…” from the drop-down menu. In the new screen, select Local Files on the left side and then “Verify integrity of game files…” on the right side of the same screen.

4. If you still can’t get rid of this unexpected error, then you need to wait until the development team at Respawn Entertainment fixes this problem in a patch update.

Hopefully, the new version will address this unexpected error.

How to disable the controller speaker in Star Wars Jedi Survivor

If you are playing Star Wars Jedi: Survivor on PlayStation 5 or PlayStation 5 Digital Edition console, then the game will take advantage of the controller speaker of the DualSense. If you are using a DualShock 4 or DualSense on the PC version, then this feature is also supported.

If you don’t like that certain sounds are being played back into the speaker of your gamepad, then you can check out this guide at Seeking Tech to see how you can disable it.

1. To start off, you need to head over to the Options menu in Jedi Survivor, which can be done from the title screen before you load into the game.

If you are currently actively playing, then you can pause the action by pressing the Options button on the DualShock 4 or DualSense controller. From the pause menu, press the R1 button until you get to the gear icon on the top right side.

2. From the Options menu, you need to select Audio on the left side.

3. On the right side of the same screen, move the cursor down until you get to Controller Speaker.

4. By default, this setting is set to 100%, which is the loudest volume.

If you want to keep this feature enabled but lower its audio output volume, then you can move the slider for this setting to the left. You can decrease the volume in 10% increments.

If you simply want to disable the gamepad speaker altogether, then you need to move the slider all the way to the left until it reaches 0%.

From our experience playing Star Wars Jedi Survivor and other games on our PS5, we notice that our DualSense battery tends to drain faster when its speaker is used. Therefore, you may want to disable this feature if you don’t want to recharge your controller as often.

How to fix Star Wars Jedi Survivor input lag issues on PS5, Xbox Series X and S

If you are playing Star Wars Jedi: Survivor on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X or Xbox Series S, you may notice that Cal may not be super responsive to your controller inputs. You can check out this troubleshooting guide from Seeking Tech to see how you can reduce the input lag for this action-adventure title.

1. To start off, you should make sure that you have sufficient battery life on your controller if you are using it wirelessly. A gamepad with low battery may not be as fast as sending the signals to your console.

If you have one bar or zero bar left, then you should recharge your DualSense or change the batteries for your Xbox Wireless Controller.

2. You should also make sure that the controller is close enough to your console. If it is too far away, or there is an obstacle in between the direct line of sight, then the communication could be weakened.

Other wireless devices near the vicinity may also obstruct the wireless connection between the gamepad and your console as well.

3. Of course, you can also use the same controller over a wired USB connection. To do so on the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S, you can simply plug in the pad via a USB cable.

For the PS5 and PS5 Digital Edition, you need to plug in the controller and then head over to the console’s Settings menu. From there, you need to select Accessories > Controller (General) > Communication Method > USB Cable.

4. On the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, you can also play the game at up to 60 frames per second. The higher frame rate should help reduce the input latency.

To enable this mode, open the Options menu in Jedi Survivor and then select Visuals. From there, make sure that Performance Mode is set to On.

5. You should make sure that your television set is displaying in Game Mode, or something similar, as this will help with lowering the input lag.

6. If your television or monitor is capable of Variable Refresh Rate, then we recommend that you enable it on the screen’s settings as doing so should help with reducing the input delay.

You should also do the same on your game console. If you are playing the game on the PlayStation 5, then you need to go to the system’s settings menu and then select Settings > Screen and Video > Video Output > VRR > Automatic.

If you are playing Star Wars Jedi Survivor on the Series X or Series S, then you need to go to the console’s settings menu and then select General > TV & display options > Video modes. From there, you need to make sure the “Allow variable refresh rate” setting is enabled.

7. If you find that moving the in-game camera around feels a little too laggy, then you can try increasing the sensitivity of the right analog stick.

You find the sliders for both the X-axis and Y-axis camera movements in the Controls section of the Options menu in Star Wars Jedi Survivor.

How to fix Star Wars Jedi Survivor PS5 performance issues

When playing Star Wars Jedi Survivor on your PlayStation 5 or PlayStation 5 Digital Edition console, you may notice that there are frame rate problems. To see how you can improve the performance when playing this action-adventure game, you can take a look at this troubleshooting article from Seeking Tech.

1. For the first step, we suggest that you disable the Usage Sharing feature by doing the following:

  • Open the Options menu from the title screen of the pause menu. In the pause menu, you can get to options by pressing the R1 button until you get to the gear icon.
  • From the Options menu, select Extras on the left column.
  • On the right side of the same screen, make sure that Usage Sharing is set to Off.

You can also try playing the game with your console disconnected from the internet to disable the data sharing.

For the uninformed, this feature will allow the game to send your play data from the PlayStation 5 to Electronic Arts. This apparently takes up some resources and, as a result, makes the game drop some frames.

2. You may also be able to get better performance by disabling some visual effects.

To do so, you need to select Visuals from the aforementioned Options menu. From there, you can turn off chromatic aberration, film grain and motion blur.

3. Restarting the game may also help with fixing the performance issues, especially if you have been playing and/or leaving the game in a suspended state for an extended amount of time.

To restart, press and hold the PS button to open the home screen of your console. From there, move the cursor over to the Star Wars Jedi Survivor icon and then press the Options button on the DualSense. In the pop-up window, select Close Game.

Once you have closed the game, open it again.

4. If you have been using the Rest Mode for your PS5 or PS5 Digital Edition console, then it may be causing some general performance problems.

In this case, you can try restarting your system by pressing the PS button, selecting the Power option located at the bottom-side menu and then picking the Restart PS5 option.

5. If your television set or monitor supports Variable Refresh Rate, then you should make sure that it is enabled for both the screen and your console. On your PS5, you need to head over to Settings > Screen and Video > Video Output > VRR and then select Automatic.

VRR will help make the game appear to run at a smoother performance if frame rate drops all the way to 48 fps.

6. You should also make sure that you have the latest patch installed for the PlayStation 5 version of Jedi Survivor.

The developers at Respawn Entertainment admitted that the game launched at an un-optimized state. Therefore, future updates should most likely improve the frame rate.

7. The game runs smoother when Performance Mode is disabled. The caveat is that you will be limited to 30 fps instead of 60 fps.

If you just want a consistent performance, then you can turn off this mode from the Options > Visuals in-game menu.

2. If you bought the game digitally, then the pre-order and/or deluxe edition bonuses should automatically be added to your account on the platform where you made the purchase.

3. You can also check to see if the content is installed on your platform.

On the PlayStation 5 or PlayStation 5 Digital Edition, you need to move the cursor over the Star Wars Jedi Survivor on the home screen of the console, press the Options button on the DualSense and then select Manage Game Content.

On the Xbox Series X or Xbox Series S, you need to move the cursor over to the game’s icon on the home screen of the console’s dashboard, press the Menu button and then select “Manage game and add-ons.” Afterwards, select the top option on the right side of the screen.

On Steam, you need to right click on the game in the Library menu, select Properties and then select DLC.

From the Epic Games Launcher, you need to tap the three dots next to the game in the Library menu and then select Manage Add-ons.

In the EA App, go to My Collection, click the three dots on the Star Wars Jedi Survivor and then select
Manage Add-ons.

4. If the content appears to be installed, then you should make sure that you progress deep enough into the campaign of Jedi Survivor until you are able to change the cosmetics, blaster and/or lightsaber sets for your character to see if you are able to access the bonuses.

5. If the content is still missing, then you can try to download the files from the PlayStation Store, Microsoft Store, Steam, EA App or Epic Games Store.

6. You can also try verifying your game files.

On the PS5, you need to go to Settings > Settings > Users and Accounts > Other > Restore Licenses > Restore.

For Steam, you need to head over to the DLC page of Star Wars Jedi Survivor, uncheck all of the downloadable content. Afterwards, launch and then exit the game. Finally, go back to the DLC page, checkmark all of the DLC available to you and then re-launch the game.

If you are using the Epic Games Launcher, click on the three dots on the game’s icon from the Library and then select Manage. Afterwards, select Verify.

For the EA App, go to My Collection and then click on the three dots on the game icon. Finally, select the Repair option.

How to fix Star Wars Jedi Survivor ‘failed to launch’ issue

When trying to open the PC version of Star Wars Jedi: Survivor through the EA App, the game may not launch. You may also see the following error message:

  • “Your game failed to launch. An error on our end caused your launch to fail. Try again a little later.”

If you still can’t get this game to launch after numerous attempts, then you can take a look at this troubleshooting article from Seeking Tech.

1. For the first step, we recommend that you try to manually download the latest patch for Star Wars Jedi Survivor.

The game is suffering from numerous bugs and glitches after launching on April 28, 2023. So, it may take some time to get some of the issues, including the “failed to launch” problem, fixed by the development team at Respawn Entertainment.

2. You can also try deleting and then re-installing the EA App. When you open it again, you will see a message to repair the application. Once you do, you may be able to launch the game without any issues.

3. You can also try downloading and installing the EA Origin App. When you open it, you may see the same aforementioned repair message for the EA App.

4. If you are using anti-virus and firewalls, then you should make sure that these tools are blocking the EA App or Star Wars Jedi: Survivor.

If you are using the Windows Firewall, for example, you need to whitelist the following processes:

  • EABackgroundService.exe
  • EAConnect_microsoft.exe
  • EADesktop.exe
  • EALocalHostSvc.exe
  • EASteamProxy.exeLink2EA.exe

Afterwards, you need to do a clean boot by taking the following steps:

  • Select Start from the Taskbar and search for msconfig.
  • From the System Configuration menu, switch over to the Services tab.
  • Afterwards, make sure that the Hide all Microsoft Services box has a checkmark and then select the “Disable all” option.
  • Next, switch over to the Startup tab and then select Open Task Manager.
  • Right click on each of the programs on the list and then select Disable.
  • Exit the Task Manage and then return to the System Configuration menu.
  • You will be asked to save your changes. Select OK to do so and then restart your PC.
  • Once your computer has restarted, try to launch Jedi Survivor in the EA App.

5. The EA App may not work if you are connecting to the internet by using a VPN. In this case, you can try launching the game without connection online via a VPN.

6. You may not have the Windows Administrator Privileges to launch the game. In this case, you can try adjusting the admin settings, if possible, to allow you to open the software.

How to fix Star Wars Jedi Survivor crashing issues when loading a save

When you try to resume your progress in Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, the game may end up crashing. On the PlayStation 5 or PlayStation 5 Digital Edition consoles, you may also see the following error message appear after the game is forced to close down:

  • “CE-108255-1: Something went wrong with the game or app.”

If this keeps happening to you when you attempt to load into your save file, then you can check out this troubleshooting article from Seeking Tech to see how you can potentially fix this specific issue.

1. When Star Wars Jedi: Survivor kept crashing for us when we tried to load into our current save, one method that worked for us was to first start a new game by selecting Start A New Journey from the title screen.

Once the new save file has loaded normally, you can quit out of it by doing the following:

  • Open the menu by pressing the Options button on PlayStation 5 or Menu button on the Xbox Series X or Xbox Serie S.
  • In the menu, you need to head over to the Options section. You can change sections by using the L1 and R1 buttons on PS5 or LB and RB buttons on Xbox. For the uninformed, the Options section is represented by the gear cog icon.
  • From the Options section, you should be able to find and select Quit.
  • After returning to the title screen, select Load Journey and then try to load back to the save file from your previous playthrough. Hopefully, you will no longer encounter any crashes when loading into the game.

2. If you still can’t resume your progress without Star Wars Jedi: Survivor unexpectedly closing down, then you can try changing the enabling or disabling the Performance Mode.

You can do so by opening the Options menu and then selecting Visuals. From there, you can turn Performance Mode either On or Off.

From our experience, the game seems more stable with this mode turned off. With that said, the frame rate will only be running at maximum of 30 fps instead of 60 fps with this mode enabled.

It is important to note that the Xbox Series S version of Star Wars Jedi: Survivor does not offer a Performance Mode as the game is limited to only running at a maximum frame rate of 30.

3. You can also try turning off the Usage Sharing setting by going to the Options menu and then heading to its Extra section.

4. Disabling chromatic aberration, film grain and/or motion blur may also help as well. To find out how you can turn off these visual effects, you can take a look at our previous guide.

5. If the game is still crashing when you try to load a save data, then you can try deleting the game off of your console storage and then re-installing it again.

6. Of course, you should also make sure that you have the latest updates installed for both the Star Wars Jedi: Survivor game as well as your gaming systems.

These new software versions may improve the stability of the game and, therefore, eliminate crashes when loading back into your previous save.

How to fix Star Wars Jedi Survivor screen tearing on PS5, Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S

When playing Star Wars Jedi Survivor on console, you may notice that the screen will tear. This is due to the refresh rate of your television set or monitor not being synchronized with the frame rate of the action-adventure game. As a result, a part of the screen will not refresh at the same rate as the rest.

To see how you can potentially fix the screen tearing when playing this title on your PlayStation 5, PlayStation 5 Digital Edition, Xbox Series X or Xbox Series S, then you can take a look at this guide from Seeking Tech.

1. If you have a television or monitor that is capable of Variable Refresh Rate, then you should make sure that you enable this feature from its settings menu. Afterwards, you need to enable VRR support on your console’s system menus.

On the PS5, you need to head over to Settings > Screen and Video > Video Output > VRR. From there, set VRR to Automatic.

For the Xbox Series X, you need to go to Settings > General > TV & display options > Video modes. From there, you need to make sure that the “Allow variable refresh rate” option is selected.

For the uninformed, VRR helps synchronize the refresh rate of the screen with the frame rate of Star Wars Jedi Survivor. Therefore, you should no longer screen tearing as long as the fps of the game stays 48 or higher on PS5. On the Series X, the fps of the game needs to maintain at least 40 in order to prevent any potential screen tearing.

The frame rate for Star Wars Jedi Survivor on Xbox Series S tops out at 30. Therefore, VRR may not be helpful on this console.

2. You can also try disabling the Usage Sharing feature, which should help improve the performance of the game, resulting in a more stable frame rate and potentially less screen tearing. In order to do so, you need to take the following steps:

  • Open the Options menu in title menu or pause menu of Jedi Survivor.
  • From there, select Extra from the list.
  • In the Extra section, set Usage Sharing to Off.

3. You may also be able to improve performance by disabling chromatic aberration, film grain and/or motion blur.

To find out how you can turn these graphical effects off, you can take a look at this step-by-step walkthrough.

4. If you haven’t done so already, you should make sure that you have the latest patch download.

The development team at Respawn Entertainment admitted that Star Wars Jedi Survivor launched at an un-optimized state. With that said, they are committed to fixing the numerous issues with the game, which should hopefully include the frequent screen tears, weeks after the initial launch date of April 28, 2023.

You can find the comments regarding the launch state of the game below:

So, if you are still seeing a lot of screen tears after all of the three previous potential solutions, then we suggest waiting until a new patch is released that will, hopefully, optimize the game’s graphical performance.
