Calibrating Controllers

If the touch screen of the Wii U GamePad does not respond correctly, or if the control sticks of controllers in general do not respond correctly, follow the instructions here in order to perform calibration .

Calibrating the Touch Screen

Calibrate the touch screen using the Wii U GamePad option in System Settings on the Wii U Menu .

If you are unable to operate the Wii U Menu using touch controls, you can use the Control Pad and the

A Button instead .

Calibrating the Control Sticks

The Left Stick and Right Stick of the Wii U GamePad are analogue control sticks . The angle and direction of these control sticks are read by the controllers to allow you to perform precision controls . When the control sticks are not tilted in any direction, their status is referred to as the “neutral position” .

If the control sticks are tilted in any direction when performing the operations listed below, they will be misrecognised as being in the neutral position, causing them to function incorrectly: z Turning the power to the console on z Starting software z

Closing software and returning to the Wii U Menu

Example: Wii U GamePad Left Stick

Calibration (Resetting the Neutral Position)

To reset the neutral position, stop touching the control sticks, then press and hold the A, B, + and – Buttons for at least three seconds .

Calibrating the Motion Controls

If the screen moves during play even though you are not operating the Wii U GamePad, or the movement of the screen does not match the movement of the Wii U GamePad correctly, then go to the HOME Menu and hold the Y Button and the B Button for at least three seconds . When the calibration screen is displayed, place the Wii U GamePad on a flat surface, and select CALIBRATE or REVERT TO DEFAULTS .

· After selecting CALIBRATE, please make sure the Wii U GamePad is placed on a flat surface .
