Nope, it wasn't ignoring it.
I Found a quick workaround to the problem by just setting the mapping back to default, given that they come correctly mapped, but if you try mapping the analog it gives you a hard time

I see.

Nyko's firmware is a mess.  Really bad idea when they decided to send two signals from a single axis.  Later versions of the firmware seem to have corrected the issue, but most people still have the buggy firmware.  We added a hack just for the Nyko series, but I see that it's not always detecting properly if you have the old firmware.  (If you did, the screenshot would show 'Type: Nyko PlayPad series (original firmware)'.

Out of curiosity, how long ago did you buy the controller?

Yesterday. I know that there seems to be an update to the controller's firmware, but it's just impossible to install. And updating the firmware is just impossible on Android 4.3 because their software is awful. I would just suggest to stay away from the analog mapping for the nyko and leave it as default

Interesting.

Yes, the firmware updater is HORRIBLE.  It broke all bluetooth functionality on my Nexus 7.  Took me a lot of googling for the fix.

I don't think too highly of Nyko at this point... wasting our time adding really bad hacks for their poor design.

Let me know if you really desperately need a fix for this, or if you can get by with loading the defaults as you've said.

Setting the defaults works fine, the only keys that would need remapping at the R, Z, and L triggers depending on how you like them, and those have no issues. I would recommend putting a warning sign in the device compatibility master list regarding the nyko suggesting not to remap the analog stick and just leave it by default.

And yeah, I've read of people saying it broke their bluetooth functionality too. Thankfully it didn't break mine in a Galaxy Note 3. Their app is pretty much pointless too, because it doesn't do much anyways. (besides breaking your phone and crashing all the time)

I can't even understand what you're saying.  Put the nyko in HID mode and use the default mapping profile.  If you're still having problems, do steps 1-8 here

Looks like a Nyko issue.  Have you tried contacting them?

If you got a gift receipt with it, maybe you can exchange it.  Personally I would wait to talk with their tech support first, though.
