    Hello everyone,
    I'm trying to emulate wii on my pc with an xbox360 controller while I'm waiting for tools to play with wii remote/nunchuck. The problem is, the left stick of the controller always seems to move left.
    I don't know why, I searched online and learned it was a "dead-zone problem".
    I don't find any software that allows me to fix it and I broke my screwdriver while trying to open the controller and fix it "hardware-style" instead of "software-style" (Yeah... I broke my screwdriver... sounds stupid right?)
    So, does anyone has a way to fix it "software-style"?
    thanks a lot :D

    I have always used Xpadder to set deadzones on controllers, only problem is it then translates it into keypresses, not joystick. I don't think setting a deadzone in Xpadder without making the axis input keypresses actually does anything for the controller then.

    Right... not sure to understand everything so... tell me if I did
    Xpadder will make me use the keyboard instead of the stick?

    Also, I've heard of a programme: Durazno
    Have you heard? Because it doesn't seems to work, maybe I use it wrong :S

    Sorry, Xpadder kind of emulates a keyboard with your gamepad. So for example, you could bind the left thumbstick of the Xbox 360 controller to up on the thumbstick types out "W", down "S", left "A", right "D", so on and so forth.

    Durazno I have not heard of though I can take a look at it soon and see if I can figure anything out, not sure when I'll have a chance to really dig into it though.

    Alright, I'll take a look at Xpadder
    thanks

    EDIT :
    Well, XPadder isn't the solution for my problem :(
    Any ideas?
