I'm wondering, if there is a good method to calibrate the thumbstick of your gamepad precisely and correctly, when going through the initial joystick calibration routine of a game (here: Tie Fighter), when you are asked to press the joystick into the upper-left and then into the lower-right corner?

As the thumbsticks of modern gamepads don't have a noticeable latch-up state in the corners, you normally don't hit the exact corner states, when moving the joypad from upper-left to lower-right and therefore you inevitably end up with a miscalibrated joystick, that will drift slowly.

Is there therefore any solution to properly calibrate your joystick manually under these circumstances?
