I looked over all of the forum categories for a few minutes before deciding that this one is the most appropriate to post in since there are no general Tech forums.
My controller seems to be malfunctioning a little. It's very sensitive to the left side and elss sensitive to the right. What I mean by that is, it's harder to make a character go right than it does left, like you have to push a little further. Also, sometimes after going left and letting go of the joystick, it doesn't always reset to neutral, but instead continues to walk slowly to the left. This is especially noticable while playing Arkanoid from the arcade. Oftentimes after moving left to hit the ball, the slider will continue to move to the left even after I let go of the joystick and it messes with me.
So there're two possibilities that I can think of: A) The joystick is busted, which I don't see why it would be, it's been fine until recently. or B) It's somehow "off balance" and needs to be adjusted. Is there some way to fix this? I seem to recall my gamecube controller doing something similar, and if you turn the gamecube on while holding a certain button combination, it automatically recalibrates the controller to neutral.
Any helpful advice would be great, this is a real bummer.
