Setting an Analog stick dead zone?
02/13/14 04:50 PM

I've been playing some games in MAME with an XBOX-360 Controller on my Win7 PC. One annoying thing that comes up every once in a while is when I'm crouched (pressing down) but then I move a certain direction without meaning to. This has caused me to walk into & off of things -usually harming my character.

I've googled how to calibrate a controller in Win7, but all that got me was (apparently) how to center the left control stick, center(?) the right stick with it's X & Y axes, and center(?) the triggers, or whatever. Nothing about setting a dead zone (if there is such a thing) so that whatever game I'm playing doesn't think I'm meaning to press a certain direction when I'm actually barely pressing it (or within a fraction of a millimeter).

Is there anything I can change in Windows? Or perhaps something in the MAME settings?
