Playing Vintage Story using a controller (Using Antimicro)

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

I broke my arm a month ago and had to play VS with a controller. After 200+ hours, settings below are really smooth and almost feels the same as keyboard+mouse (until you are not playing in PVP of course, aiming with a stick is different). My setup is based on many hours on Call of Duty from my childhood.

 

 

  1.  Download and install Antimicro (AntimicroX also works fine). I would recommend to download only on Github and not from an other website
  2. Connect your favorite controller (mine is a 2016 Xbox One wireless controller) and launch Antimicro
  3. You should have this; you can see all the possible buttons on a controller and sync it with a keyboard/mouse button

Just click on a button then click on the button you want to associate.

For e.g. : Select A, a small virtual keyboard appear,  then click SPACE BAR. Now when you will press A, you will virtually press SPACE BAR in game. If you need to apply a mouse button, click on mouse first.

4. Regarding your controller, you may need to apply few optimisations:

For my Xbox controller, I needed to add a small pause buffer delay for the L and R shoulder. Those are sensitive buttons, a small press could result in many activation in game. To counter that, we will add a 0,01s pause delay.

 

 - First select L or R trigger then click on AVANCE/ADVANCED

Now in "Assignments" configure it like this. Click on "Blank or KB/M

Select "Pause" then select 0,01s (or more regarding your own controller/preference) and finally Insert/Insérer. Now you may delete "Souris 4" and add it afterward so "Pause" comes first" then the linked button. It's really important.

5 Now save your profile and make sure to connect your controller before launching Antimicro

6 Enjoy!

 

I could also share my ready to use Antimicro configuration if needed but I can't upload the file here.
