Guide for Stay Out – Stalker Online – Xbox Controller Support

Hello and welcome to another Controller Guide of mine! In this guide we’ll be going over the support I made for Stay Out! So get comfy and grab your best drink Stalker. We’ve got a lot to cover! This profile was designed to be played off of Default keybindings as well. So I’ve made this to work as a Plug&Play kind of deal here. This is mainly here as a Read-me. So with that said let me introduce you to Manwell. I mean the Manual.

Controller Profile:
steam://controllerconfig/1180380/2352686925

Copy and paste that url link into any web browser and Steam’s client should open by default. You can preview this profile using that link before you apply and “download” this controller support.

 

1.) Idle Layer

In this section, we’ll be going over how to use the “Idle Layer.” This Idle layer is where you will do most of your game-play.Stay Out - Stalker Online - Xbox Controller Support

  1. The Right Trigger

    Shooting

    • The Right Trigger works as your Left Mouse click. Using this in-game while you have your guns drawn will shoot your gun. Easy enough right?
  2. Right Bumper

    Collecting Ground Items. [TAP]

    • By tapping the Right Bumper. This will will cause your character to collect items that are on the ground. Like plants or tree logs.

      Use Equipped Binoculars [HOLD]

      Camera Toggle [HOLD]

    • Holding the start button will force the controller profile to change from the IDLE layer to this MOUSE MODE/CAMERA TOGGLE Layer. Actually when you’re at the games log-in screen, this is the layer that is used to navigate the main menu of the game. This is actually a huge feature That involves Artifact hunting as well. I’ll be going over that more later. But for right now if you use this in-game, you can toggle between using the game’s camera movements, to using the mouse cursor.
  4. The Face Buttons:[X], [Y], [B] & [A]

    [X] Interact [TAP]

    • If you press the X button you can interact with NPCs, Skin animals & Fast loot. Think of this as a simple interact button. By default this is set as the “F” key in-game. THIS DOES NOT WORK for fast looting all boxes, crates or caches of the like. It works for collecting drops. Like flowers or lumber. This works with intractable objects. However, some things you loot from like animals, you can fast loot by tapping the [X] button again when the loot window is open. Other wise you have to use the Joystick-mouse to drag and drop.

Also, simply pressing the Left Trigger will reset any inconsistencies you may encounter with the profile, while playing the game. Like an auto-run error.

 

2.) Binoculars Layer

In this section, we’ll be going over how to use the “Binoculars Layer.” You will only ever use this layer if you have Binoculars equipped. To use this layer all you have to do is; make sure you have Binoculars equipped, and hold the “Right Bumper” button on the controller. Doing so will activate this layer. Effectively what this does is apply an overlay layer to the “Idle Layer” of the controller profile.

In this section, we’ll be going over how to use the “Aim|Scope|Combat Layer.” Mainly this will be used for switching your guns and Aiming to shoot. Unfortunately this does not support the Lean feature in 3rd person when I made this. Due to, when your holding the Left Trigger you’re also using the Right mouse button to take aim. However that’s not to say the feature isn’t apart of the support. I’ll go over this later in the guide.

    • Pressing this will use your Night Vision. I’ve not tested this in-game. Only due to I’ve never gotten N.V.G’s before in the game.

 

4.) AutoRun Layer

In this section, we’ll be going over how to use the “Auto-Run Layer.” Because of how short this list will be I’ll not be going over every single button. Mainly because 85% of what you can press on this layer will remove the Auto-Run feature and return you to the Idle layer. SO! With that said. The only way to use this layer is to Press & Hold the A button on the Idle layer. Thus forcing the Controller Profile to change to this Auto-Run layer. All of the buttons will work just as they normally would on the Idle layer. But if you use a button here on this layer you stop running, and this layer gets switched back to the Idle layer. Also the button that you pressed gets activated. Just keep in mind, when you open any window like your inventory or the Map. This auto-run layer gets switched to the Camera Toggle Mouse Mode Layer.

the only exception to that is when you Hold the A button to switch to this layer, you can press the A button again to Auto-Walk. You will continue to move. If you press the A button again you will go from auto-walking to auto-running. This is kind of a way to continue moving and regain your energy when your character runs out. So when you have enough energy regained you can press the A button to Auto-Run once more. This is only really intended to be used when traveling long distances.

I did plan on making this layer activate when you click-in the left joystick, however. This was already in-depth enough as is. So you may see that LJ click-in note in the profile, just ignore that.

5.) Quick Actions

In this section, we’ll be going over how to use the “quick actions layer.” This menu is only Shown/Active while you’re holding the Left Bumper in-game.

Also. When you open any of these windows for example: Clan, Friends, Emotes, Open Chat and other menus. The controller profile will switch to the Camera Toggle layer. I’ll go over why this is more later.

Stay Out - Stalker Online - Xbox Controller Support

  1. Right Trigger

    Movement Speeds

    • This is mainly used for the tutorial part of the game. This will increase the speed of your character. From a walk to a faster over all running speed.

     

  2. Right Bumper

    Movement Speeds

    • This is mainly used for the tutorial part of the game. This will decrease the speed of your character. From a Run to a slower over all walking speed.

     

  3. Start

    DO NOT BIND

    • The Start button is not set, bound, or listed to or on anything and should never be while you use this profile.

     

  4. The Face Buttons:[X], [Y], [B] & [A]

    [X] Friends

    • By default this is bound to the key “F11.” Tapping this will use your Friends Window.

      [Y] Clan

    • By default this is bound to the key “O.” Tapping this will use your Clan window

      [B] Emotes

    • Pressing this will open your list of emotes in the game. The default key for this is the “Zero” key on your Number-pad. I like to use this to squat at a campfire.

      [A] Open Chat

    • Pressing this will open the game’s chat. Even the game’s tutorial makes you use this. It’s a great way to check mission details. Or to chat with the other players in-game. This is the “Enter” key by default.

     

  5. The Left Bumper

    Radial Menu

    • This is where the main feature of this layer takes place. Holding the Left Bumper on the Idle Layer will activate this Radial Menu for the profile. Moving your Right Joystick will display the Radial Menu in-game. Letting go of this button while having an item selected in the menu will use an Item you have in your hotbar. Or if you don’t have anything highlighted, using the right joystick. Just let go of the left bumper. The profile will change back to the Idle Layer. I’ve added a center button in the Radial Menu to help with not using an item by mistake. Below I’ll show what an Active item use will look like versus what a Cancel Item action looks like.

      Use Item:

      Stay Out - Stalker Online - Xbox Controller Support

      Cancel Item:

      Stay Out - Stalker Online - Xbox Controller Support

      If you do end up using an Item by mistake, just remember the start button on the controller is your escape key. And that too is also your cancel button, on the Idle layer.

     

  6. The Right Joystick

    Radial Menu Navigation.

    • Using the right joystick is how you select and use items you’ve placed on your Hotbar. Holding the Left Bumper Down on the Idle layer will switch to this mode.Using the Right Joystick in conjunction with the left bumper being held will let you select said items. Highlighting them with your right joystick, and let go of the left bumper. This will automatically use the Highlighted item. As shown in images above.

     

  7. (N/A) The D-Pad

    • This has no other feature as of right now.

     

  8. The Left Joystick: Movement

    • Character movement.

     

  9. The Select Button

    DO NOT BIND

    • The Select button is not set, bound, or listed to, or on anything. And should never be while you use this profile. Just like the Start button, that I totally didn’t copy’pasta for this part.

     

  10. Left Trigger

    N/A

    • This will do nothing in the game.

 

6.) Camera Toggle Layer. “Mouse Mode.”

In this section, we’ll be going over how to use the “Camera Toggle Layer.” Or what I like to call; Mouse Mode.

When you open a window in-game, such as a shop window to buy or trade items, the game is showing the mouse cursor. The main two layers: IDLE & CAMERA TOGGLE. Work off of this feature steam has. That feature being: Is the game showing the mouse cursor? Or is the mouse cursor being hidden? Normally when a cursor is hidden in a game, that means the user (you.) Has control of the camera movements. Thus making the mouse cursor “hidden.” So in short, when you open the Inventory window for example. You will be using the Left joystick to move the mouse cursor. Just as you would for the Main Menu of the game. Because the Camera Toggle layer is active for using the mouse cursor movements.

Stay Out - Stalker Online - Xbox Controller Support

  1. The Start Button.

    System Menu [TAP]

    • Tapping this will open the game system menu.

      Camera Toggle [Hold]

    • Holding this will switch back to the Idle layer. This is actually used for collecting artifacts. I’ll talk about how to collect artifacts later in the guide. It’s pretty tricky.

     

  2. The Face Buttons: [X] & [A]

    [X] Context Menu

    • By default this is bound to your right mouse button. Tapping this you can see more info for an item.

     

    [A] Select/Confirm/Accept

    • Pressing this will use your left mouse button. To confirm a selection, like a game dialog, or move an Item from one window to another.

     

  3. Right Joystick.

    Scrolling/Zoom Menus

    • So for this interaction, on the joystick. I’ve got it set to use the scroll wheel on the mouse. This is used for scrolling through dialog menus, or zooming in and out of the Map.

     

  4. Left Joystick.

    Move the Mouse Cursor

    • So I’ve hinted at what this does in the guide but I’ve yet to actually talk about it. While this layer is active the mouse is not mapped to the right joystick rather to the Left. For me this brings a smoother controller transition for navigating menus. If it had native controller support, I’d do a similar “snap-to” menu navigation setup with the D-pad. If I had those kinds of coding skills. And it wasn’t seen as hacking or braking the game. But I digress.

     

  5. The Select Button.

    Show Steam Keyboard.

    • Pressing the select button will open Steam’s keyboard overlay in-game. This can be used for chatting in the game’s chat window, or buying X amount items at a store. By using the Context button and selecting the “add” option from the drop down menu in-game.

     

  6. Left Trigger

    Collecting Artifacts. [Hold]

    • Okay so this is where the controller support for this game gets pretty tricky. And is one of the main reasons why it’s taken me so long to get this user guide made. So in-order to collect artifacts first you need to have a M.G.D. & have it equipped. Next find an anomaly in-game. By tossing rocks into areas of the game where you can see a shimmer. That’s called an Anomaly. DO NOT get too close to them you will die. Then you’ll have to Activate this layer. By pressing and holding the start button. Then HOLD the Left Trigger. That will switch the controller profile to the artifact collecting layer. I’ll talk more on how to collect them later in the guide.

 

7.) Artifact Collecting “Mouse Mode”

In this section, we’ll be going over how to use the “Artifact Collecting Layer.” Okay, so now that we have an M.G.D in our hands, we can finally attempt to collect some Artifacts. This layer is a little confusing because when I try to collect artifacts, using this layer, it feels like I’m having to use both sides of my brain just to keep up with the mini-game collection feature they have in-game. For collecting artifacts. Let’s get into it.

Stay Out - Stalker Online - Xbox Controller Support

  1. The Right Trigger.

    First let me start by telling you this; Non of these keys on the face buttons are your Nun-pad keys. These are the keys you’d press if you were to use your hotbar. So non of that NUM LOCK here.

    Artifact Numbers 5 through 8. [HOLD]

    • Holding the right trigger will change the Face button from 1-4. Into 5-8. This is a shifted mode on this layer. When not holding this button the face buttons will be your 1, 2, 3 & 4 number keys. However when the right trigger is held they switch. I’ll go over this more later.

     

  2. The Right Bumper.

    Artifact Number 9. [TAP]

    • Pressing the right Bumper works as you pressing 9 on your keyboard.

     

  3. The Face Buttons:[X], [Y], [B] & [A]

    [X] Artifact 1

    • By default this is bound to key “1.” Tapping this will use your Artifact 1 button when the M.G.D asks for it.

      [Y] Artifact 2

    • By default this is bound to the key “2.”

      [B] Artifact 3

    • By default this is bound to the key “3” on your keyboard.

      [A] Artifact 4

    • By default this is bond to key “4” when the M.G.D. asks for one of these keys you must press the correct button. Else you start the whole thing over.

     

  4. The D-Pad: Arrow Keys

    D-pad Left

    • By default this is your Arrow Key. Pressing Left on the D-pad will press the Left Arrow key.

      D-pad Right

    • By default this is your Right Arrow key.

      D-pad Up

    • By default this is your Up Arrow key.

      D-pad Down

    • By default this is the Down Arrow key.

     

  5. The Left Joystick: Mouse movements

    • This is actually still being read from the previous controller layer. So this still acts as your mouse cursor. And still functions as intended previously. So as before clicking in this joystick will move the mouse to the center of the screen.

     

  6. Left Trigger

    Artifact Collecting.

    • Holding this will let you collect Artifacts. It lets you use this layer of the controller. So long as you’ve already gone to the Mouse Mode layer first to activate this section. Releasing this button will take you back to the Mouse Mode layer.
