Hi, is it normal that the Left stick of the (left) joycon seems to be too much sensive when it comes to detect any diagonal ?

When playing and pressing this direction with low angle it's considered as UP-RIGHT instead of RIGHT.

That's definitely super annoying when playing Blazblue, and that makes moving in solarus almost only with diagonales -.-. That's barely unplayable (not a meme)

Is there a way to configure that somewhere ?

Thanks

I already tried the calibration.
Noting seems wrong here, le point moves as intended.

It does not seem to be analog issue, but how some games consider low angles as diagonal.
I see no problem at all in games that has more than 8 directions.

It's not WD40 you should use, it's electronic contact cleaner. I had a problem with my stick continuing to input slight up or down directions even at neutral, so I picked up a can of CRC QD Electronic Cleaner and lifted up the dust cover on the analog stick, sprayed once on each side, let it dry (only takes a few seconds), and now it's good as new.

I theorize this problem occurred because of dust getting under the dust cover from how my joycons are always vertical in the dock with nothing covering them. The good news is that erroneous inputs is easily fixed, and people on Reddit have had the same activea fix their joycons too. So give that a shot.

Air duster works too, from what I understand, just not as well.
