Hi, is there any way to reset the calibration of the controller? It seems the default calibration has the analog stick stuck down, when it should not be. Connecting with Mayflash 3-in-1 Magic Joy. I am sure not to be touching the sticks when I launch Nintendont. Using the latest version for vWii.

I have tried the following:
- Connected the Mayflash with Gamecube controller to a PC and launched Dolphin (calibrated and working properly)
- Connecting to my old Gamecube (works fine)

Any assistance would be appreciated. Thank you!

Theres probably an easier way to do it but you can do the oldschool way and use hidtest to adjust the deadzones when using the mayflash 3 in 1

or wait until someone else chimes in with a way to do it within Nintendont

I tried HIDTest. and it shows nothing abnormal. Both analog sticks have full range of motion with no dead zone issues; the issue I'm having is that the left analog needs to be fully pushed right in order to be centered, both in an actual game and in the Nintendont UI.

If HIDTest with the current controller.ini shows normal function, would it be a bug on Nintendont's end? If so, where would I go to report? Thanks..

do your deadzones match ones reported on this ini file?

Hi, that is the same controller.ini in the root directory of my SD card, however I do not see anything relating to dead zones in that file. StickX and StickY show 3,0,100 and 4,0,100 respectively. How would i put my dead zone values under those two with the data given from HIDTest?

push the stick in the direction thats causing issue and change the controller.ini file to the new results

Okay, now I'm at my wit's end.

I got a Wii U to Gamecube adapter (one for Smash Bros) and it worked fine with Smash Bros U, and worked perfectly one time (tried Mario Sunshine, best test of Analog triggers) and everything worked perfectly.

Went back, tried to play the same game again, and same problem, analog stick is drifting.

I'm sure Nintendont has a config file or something that it creates that can be deleted. I scoured the entire USB drive for this particular file and it's nowhere to be found. What would I be looking for? Thanks again for your assistance.

Edit: searched around, seems I should have a nincfg.bin on the root of the SD card, but it's not there. I'm loading Nintendont through a channel forwarder in vWii mode.
