Hey, since there are a lot of new people using this, I just wanted to clear some things up.
Default deadzones are completely fucking awful on certain games. As far as I know there is no way to tune this even with current in-house Steam settings for the DS4.
Luckily, Input Mapper allows you to go all the way back to -50 on the deadzone. This gives about a +6 or so actual deadzone in games like Super Meat Boy.
Trust me, you do need to try this out if you have not. Default deadzones on SMB are like the equivalent of +40 or some crazy shit on the game. Completely useless.
With -50 the game is completely playable, with just a tiny bit of deadzone on the actual controller.
Now for games like Ori and the Blind Forest you get a pretty good deadzone just from default zero settings with Input Mapper. I tend to prefer -5 to -15 for these types of games.
I use profiles in every ten integer increments because quite honestly games like SMB are impossible to play with a stick any other way than with -50. Other games have different needs so you will have to experiment.
I hope this helps anyone that is just using default settings for all games.
