Sorry if this is in the wrong section, I'm actually a moderator at a forum and know how annoying it can be for noobs to post in the wrong place! Anyways, I downloaded LoZ:MM and I go to play, and he instead of running like normal, Link just kind of... well, tiptoes -- really gingerly. He'll run normally left and right, even backwards, but forwards is really really slow. It's actually taking away immensely from the game, and keeping me from enjoying it. Any insight is appreciated!!
I'm having this exact same problem. I downloaded MM on Wii VC and as soon as I started, when pressing up to run forward Link just shuffle walked forward. I put up with it a while hoping it would fix itself but it hasn't. Like you, it isn't my controller as I tested it with other games. I tried reloading, unplugging and replugging, deleting and redownloading both the system data and save file and it still does it. This is the only forum I have found with the same issue but apparently it is still to be resolved. I will contact Nintendo tomorrow and forward any information I receive.
