So I've been using my Switch Pro controller back and forth between my PC and my Switch, with no problems whatsoever. Until recently, that is. Last night, after I disconnected my controller from my PC to use with my Switch, I slightly shocked it from the built up static on me. It wasn't a very strong shock, and I've certainly done worse to other controllers, but once I connected it to my Switch, I realised something was wrong. All of the face buttons worked as expected, along with the sticks, but all of the back buttons (R, L, ZR, ZL) do... weird things. L now is Left Analogue and Screenshot, R is Down Analogue with Home, ZL is Up Analogue, and ZR is Right Analogue with A. Has anyone every heard of/ran into this issue before, or have any advice on how to fix it?

I don't believe that the controller has any chip where it stores button mappings, as those are all saved on the Switch. I did try to use controller configs to fix the problem, but that would just leave me with ZL ZR R and L as the only working buttons, with everything else disabled.

It's not something I've heard of, but I'd contact Nintendo tbh. It's a legit hardware problem with a legit product, not caused by doing anything shady, and they might be able to tell you how to reset it, or if not, that it needs repairing or replacing.

    It's weird people in their mid 50s-20s seems to like social media more than TikTok and YouTube

    But that's a thing with social media; it creates an illusion of proximity, when in truth everyone is overwhelmed with all the information and all the social demands in the platforms

  • Dark_Phoras @ Dark_Phoras:
    And a lot of people are addicted to the phone, checking social media or talking with someone. Some exercise in the gym while being glued to the phone, not even activity takes them away from it

    And I was like that too, until I left social media. Now sometimes I'm grabbing my phone, opening the browser and thinking: I've seen everything I wanted to see, I don't have a reason to use the phone. And I put it down

    I didn't make case, I made my manoeuver to park the car. But I caught them off-guard, the one ahead hit the brakes and had to jump from the scooter. For a second I thought he would go against the car. They were trying to race through a gap they perceived, thinking I was going to always drive forward

    I guess they learned a valuable lesson, don't assume that real roads are a playground

    Those scooters go 40km/h, and the kids were riding them with no helmets
