    I just got a GameCube controller adapter for my PC and it works great. But when I try to set the controls in Ultimate Spiderman (PC) all the controls work fine except for the analog stick for walking. All it let's me do is slowly walk around, its supposed to male me run but all it does is walk. Is there any way I can fix this? Google was no help at all, I tried to fix it before I came here to post but just couldn't.

    Does the game recognize your gamepad, or are you using a keyboard emulator, like Joy2Key? These programs let you use your gamepad as a keyboard, which in certain games is a better solution. If the game is recent, you can also try the xbox controller emulator x360ce, which will map your controller to whatever controls the console version of your game would normally use.

    Note that these are alternative ways to use a gamepad with PC titles, a method that goes around letting the game figure out how to map input to your gamepad.

    Some of the older ones pick up the analogue stick as buttons instead. I'd open your game controller properties in the control panel and see I its detected as a stick

    It was detected as a stick, it just needed to be calibrated because the GameCube controller analog stick isn't as sensitive as the 360 one.
