  3. Replace the controller binds at the top with the following:

    void main()
    {
       // -------------------------------------------------------------------
       // Xbox 360 Controller
       // -------------------------------------------------------------------

       // "bind"
       // "bind2"
       // "bindrep"

       // "joy0_axis00" (A Button)
       // "joy0_axis01" (B Button)
       // "joy0_axis02" (X Button)
       // "joy0_axis03" (Y Button)

       // "joy0_axis04" (Left Shoulder Button)
       // "joy0_axis05" (Right Shoulder Button)

       // "joy0_axis06" (Back Button)
       // "joy0_axis07" (Start Button)

       // "joy0_axis08" (Left Stick click)
       // "joy0_axis09" (Right Stick click)

       // "joy0_axis0c" (Left Stick)
       // "joy0_axis0d" (Right Stick)
       // "joy0_axis0e" (Triggers)
       // "joy0_axis0f" (DPad)

       bindrep "joy0_axis0c", "moveright arg1 / 128.0; moveforward (-arg0) / 128.0"; //Move with Left Stick
       bindrep "joy0_axis0d", "lookvelocity0 arg1*0.2, arg0*0.04"; //Look with Right Stick (modify arg1 and arg0 to change horizontal and vertical sensitivity)
       bind2 "joy0_axis08", "press crouch", "release crouch"; //Crouch by pressing Left Stick
       bind2 "joy0_axis09", "moveup 1; press jump", "moveup 0; release jump"; //Jump by pressing Right Stick
       bind2 "joy0_axis00", "moveup 1; press jump", "moveup 0; release jump"; //Jump by pressing A Button

       bindrep "joy0_axis0e", "int a0 = arg0/255.0; if(a0) { press attack } else { release attack }"; //Attack by pressing either Trigger
       bind2 "joy0_axis04", "press attack2", "release attack2"; //Second attack or use item by pressing Left Shoulder Button
       bind2 "joy0_axis01", "press attack2", "release attack2"; //Second attack or use item by pressing B Button

       bind "joy0_axis0f", "int a0 = arg0/255.0; if(a0) { cmd nextitem } int a1 = arg1/255.1; if(a1) { cmd nextweapon }"; //Horizontal DPad changes item, vertical DPad changes weapon
       //bind "joy0_axis04", "cmd prevweapon"; //Previous weapon by pressing Left Shoulder Button
       //bind "joy0_axis05", "cmd nextweapon"; //Next weapon by pressing Right Shoulder Button
       bind "joy0_axis02", "cyclecameramode 0, 1"; //Switch between third and first person by pressing X Button
       bind "joy0_axis03", "activateitem \"0x106\""; //Use potion by pressing Y Button

       bind "joy0_axis07", "releaseall; cl_opengamemenu"; //Open menu with Start Button
    }
  1. Open Options.cfg and modify or add the line CONFIG=Config.mpp.

Notes

There may be issues with certain controllers (e.g. Triggers and the DPad on an Xbox 360 Controller will not function as individual buttons, and the controller will not work for navigating the game menus).

Issues fixed[edit]

Game always runs windowed (Windows 8)[edit]

On Windows 8 the game may ignore resolution choices, always running in windowed mode. Windows 7 compatibility mode fixes this.
Set Windows 7 compatibility mode[citation needed]
  1. Right-click the game's shortcut (or Enclave.exe) and choose Properties.
  2. On the Compatibility tab, choose Run this program in compatibility mode for.
  3. Choose Windows 7 from the list.
  4. Click OK to apply your changes. The game will now run in fullscreen mode correctly.
The desktop may be briefly shown when launching the game but it will go to fullscreen afterwards.

Issues with mouse movement[edit]

Use 125hz mouse polling rate[citation needed]

Setting the mouse polling rate to 125hz may alleviate various issues with mouse movement affecting gameplay. If your mouse does not have adjustable polling rate and you still experience problems, using a different/older mouse may work.

Overexposed light effect when using torch[edit]

Use dgVoodoo[8]
  1. Download and extract dgVoodoo.
  2. Open the MS folder and copy the contents to the installation folder.
  3. Run dgVoodooCpl.exe.
  4. Click on "Add" and choose the installation folder.
  5. Go to the DirectX tab.
  6. Disable "dgVoodoo Watermark" and click OK.
