8Bitdo controllers settings - after connection
I had an issue with the SN30 Pro controller with retropie. It was with Zelda OOT and Mario 64. With Zelda, from time to time Link would not auto-jump properly. With Mario, he would not jump out of water at all. To fix this I read this older post https://retropie.org.uk/forum/topic/126/n64-controller-analogue-stick-issues/7
The problem stems from the range from rest to fully pressed of the analog sticks.
Change this file:
Change these settings:
;AnalogDeadzone = 4096,4096
AnalogDeadzone = 338,338
;AnalogPeak = 32768,32768
AnalogPeak = 21200,21200
NOTE: the ';' denotes a comment, so comment out the original settings. Essentially copy the above over the original settings.
I have not had any issues since the change.
