    Then, click and drag the slider
    .
    Depending on the overall performance of your controller, choose the best option. It all depends on the performance and condition of the analog stick on the gamepad. If the controller is slightly damaged or there is a wiggle to one side, then you can adjust the slider to correct the performance of the unit.

    When you have adjusted the slider, click "OK"
    .
    Note that this slider only works with DirectInput controllers. This setting will not work for XInput controllers. The Xbox 360, for example, uses XInput. Other, lower-cost controllers that you may buy online are usually DInput. Set this setting according to your preference, and then you can begin to play the game.
