You can use EasyC (or RobotC, or Simulink) to write and load a different program to the cortex,
that will change the way the Joystick controls affect the Cortex motor ports.

Before I change the cortex default program. I want to check if the following configuration is the correct for the forward/reverse and right/left

That looks ok, (and also exactly the same as the default program!) assuming you have all the constant defines as reasonable.
It is faster to try it than ask the forum.  If you break it, you can always reload the default program from the BEST website.
If you robot doesn't drive right with the default, you probably have the motors wired backwards, or left/right reversed.

One more question what is the link where I can download the default program in case that the program that I have ready does not work, and  do I have to download it just to the cortex or also the game pad.
