It seemed that there are a few people floating about having problems with the Xbox 360 controller for Windows, especially a couple on GTA: San Andreas (including me)

However, I finally accomplished a full map of all the practical controls in the SAAC (San Andreas Advanced Control)

This [b]very[/b] useful tool is available for dowload through [url="http://www.gtagaming.com"]GTAGaming.com[/url] (San Andreas Advanced Control v1.2)

The config file I have created is attatched at the bottom of the post...

The controls are as follows....

[b]Please Note: The A Button is SPRINT while on foot.[/b]

[url="http://img223.imageshack.us/img223/2204/gtasa360controlsinvehicle2vn.jpg"]In Vehicle...[/url]

Follow the link to the attatched file "presets.txt" below, copy and paste all the text on the page into a new notepad document then save the file as "PRESETS.INI" in the SAME FOLDER that you save the .exe application for the SAAC tool, run SAAC along side San Andreas in the background each time you play, and don't forget to select the XBOX 360 controller configuration in the list at the bottom, and save any changes you make!

Enjoy! Edited by DigitallyInsane^

SAAC is a very flexible and easy to use tool, simply customize the shoulder buttons and A and X buttons yourself! If you need any help with use of the tool, please PM me.

It's called "controller drift", and it's a pain in the arse

It's a bit hard to explain from memory, but you need to take the controller apart, and pull the plastic part of the thumbstick off.

You will see these thin bits of metal that arch over the rods. (not using the right words there, I'm sure, but hopefully when you look at it, you'll know what I mean)

Anyway, you need to bend that bit of metal (very slightly) so that it forces the thumbstick back into the correct default position.

It will probably take a bit of trial and error, but it worked great for me.

OK, here you see somebody has used a rubber band to do the same thing...

you can see the bit of metal/copper I was talking about.

I'd say my way was better, because I don't see that rubber band lasting very long.

Old thread, but I'm going to answer you anyway. Most of these programs come with a way to change the "Dead Zone" of the sticks. Just make the dead zone a little bigger and you shouldn't have a problem anymore.
