    Function can be toggled in options -> Improved deadzoning for movement'

    The analog stick doesnt register as 'down' for standing still.

    Both the analog and dpad buttons works fine on skills but when holding the analog stick down when walking it seems it hasnt been mapped to a true 'down' position, it will start register walking either left or right.
