I have a USB 2 Thrustmaster joystick connected to a PC running Windows XP SP 3. I have been testing the joystick using Control Panel->Game Controllers->Properties. However, I find that sometimes (not always), the testing cross-hair moves slightly (judders by a few pixels) when the joystick is in the central position. Does this mean that the joystick is faulty, or is some occasional movement of the cross-hair perhaps normal when the joystick is in a central position?
I've tried recalibrating several times within XP, but this has not made any difference.
