The Control Stick has a RESET function (refer to "Control Stick Function") that operates when the L and R Buttons and the START Button are pressed simultaneously. Because this is a hardware function, note the following programming cautions.
The application software detects those buttons that are frequently pressed simultaneously and activates special modes. Since the simultaneous pressing of the L, R, and START Buttons activates the RESET function, it is preferable not to use this combination in games which use the Control Stick.
The simultaneous pressing of the L, R, and START buttons cannot normally be detected. Whenever it is detected, check for the JSRST flag.
The Control Stick enables precision operation by reading the stick's physical angles and directions. This affords more precise character movement than a conventional controller button.
Please include instructions concerning the proper use of the Control Stick in each Game Pak Instruction Booklet.
The following items are explained in the Control Deck Instruction Booklet.
1. When turning the Nintendo 64 Power Switch ON, do not touch the Control Stick.
2. The position of the Control Stick when the Control Deck's Power Supply is turned ON is called the "Neutral position." If the Control Stick is slanted when power is applied, this slanted position become its Neutral position and the Control Stick may not operate correctly.
3. Once the Control Stick is in the correct Neutral position (center stop), perform the following. Remove your fingers from the Control Stick, hold down the L and R Buttons, and the START Button (Control Stick RESET function).
4. Placing liquids or foreign objects in the Control Stick may damage the Control Stick.
Should an accident occur, consult your nearest Nintendo dealer or the place of purchase.
