This issue only occurs in two games. In NBA 2k18 it makes it so the player I'm controlling stumbles around the court constantly facing the opponents basket on defense. Very strange looking. And in Elex I can't navigate the menus with an Xbox controller because immediately it jumps back to the top selection in the menu. There is a sound effect when you move to different menu options and I can hear a machine gun like constant barrage of that sound playing.
I have no idea why it doesn't affect any other games or programs.
I tried switching to a different keyboard, but that had no impact so I don't think it's a defective keyboard. I also used joy.cpl to test the gamepad to see if there was some drift or something on the left thumbstick, but it was calibrated fine and showed up dead center at rest.
I really have no idea what could be causing the issue. I checked the forums for each game to see if anyone else was reporting a similar issue and came up empty.
Any suggestions or help are appreciated.
