Typed out by Logan Hudson USING THE CONTROLLER Control Stick Function The Nintendo 64 Control Stick uses an analog system to read the angles and directions of its movement. This allows precision control that is not possible using the conventional + Control Pad. When turning the Control Deck power ON, do not move the Control Stick from its neutral position on the controller. If the Control is held at an angled position (as shown in the picture on the left) when the power is turned ON, this position will be set as neutral. This will cause games using the Control Stick to operate incorrectly. To reset the neutral position once the game has started, let go of the Control Stick so it can return to its center position (as shown in the picture on the left) then press START while holding down the L and R Buttons. The Control Stick is a precision instrument; make sure not to spill liquids or place any foreign objects into it. If you need assistance, contact Nintendo Consumer Assistance at 1-800-255-3700 or your nearest Nintendo Authorized Repair Center. 1 CONTROLLER FUNCTIONS Change the controller configuration by selecting CONTROLLER SETUP from the Game Option screen.
