    How to update your controller and GNX modules to the latest firmware

    Please note this step is usually not required as all controllers are shipped with the latest firmware.
    If issues are encountered with the axes or buttons, please follow below steps to calibrate the controller.

    How to calibrate your controller's axes and buttons

    Please note this step is only required if the quick calibration as per the instructions enclosed in the box do not yield satisfactory results.
    Please ensure all steps are carefully followed in detail.
    Please do not use any other calibration software, eg. Microsoft.
    The vkbdevcfg software is available for download on this page.
