RSS S.t.a.l.k.e.r. with a gamepad/controller

Posted by on


Upd.02.2022: Gamepad configs now in Steam. Browse 'Community' configs for "Marksmanko" ones. Made for Dualshock 4, press 'Show other controller types' if using a different model. Launch Steam as admin.

Uploaded for titles: S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl, S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Clear Sky, S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat, Stalker-CoC, Dead Air, AnomalyLauncher, Lost Alpha DC. Tip: you can rename anything in your Steam library to one of these names to access its configs. For example add Misery mod as a "non-Steam game", rename it into S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat and play with its config. This should work for GOG or CD versions of the game as well.

Tip: for better aiming go to Steam settings > Controller > General controller settings > Detected controllers > click on your gamepad name > Calibrate. Make the right stick deadzone as small as possible before it stars drifting. Also, disable mouse acceleration!


📜 Here's a little guide on how to play Stalker on PC with a gamepad (Old).

📥 First, install a program called AntiMicro, it's free, small and open source.

🎮 Set up your controller in the program if not recognized automatically (Options tab => Game Controller Mapping). Before starting the game load a corresponding profile in AntiMicro. Profiles contain key bindings, they are saved as files with .amgp extension. Download:

⚙️ The bindings were made using xbox 360 controller, Dualshocks and other models should work fine as well, certainly reduce thumb-stick dead zone (in AntiMicro) if you use one of those gamepads.

⚠️⛶ For better aiming disable mouse acceleration in Windows. It's called Enhance Pointer Precision in mouse options.

Launch AntiMicro as admin.

Thanks so much Marksmanko! Great to have the controller option. Just to say it didn't work initially for me in-game. I had to click on run as admin at the bottom bar in Antimicro, then all good. Thanks again. :)
