So I saved my game last night, I was in cordon, saved it during a firefight -

Loaded up today, noticed hitting the escape button wouldn't skip the GSC/Nvidia/deep silver intro videos

Went to Load Game.

EMPTY. Nothing there... wtf.

Went to CONTROLS. Empty... everything was blank... great....

I installed Gnomus' scopes for CS (overwrote my fsgame.ltx)

and I originally had Real Weapon Names for Clear Sky (1.1)

Real Weapon Names for Clear Sky, Stalker Downloads, Stalker Weapons

and downloaded Real Weapon Names Clear Sky (ENG - ITA) - FIXED ((1.504)) Real Weapon Names Clear Sky (ENG - ITA) - FIXED, Stalker Downloads, Stalker Singleplayer

Would performing either of those actions erase everything? wtf happened.... where are my saved games and controls?

Nope, Gnomus's save game folder is obviously in a different place to yours, so the fsgame.ltx that you installed over your own, is pointing to a different directory - nothing has been deleted. Go to the fsgame and see what the top line reads. Mine reads:

$app_data_root$=true|false|C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Documents\STALKER-STCS\

Which tells the game to look in that folder for saves/screenshots etc. Find out where you STALKER-STCS folder is and edit you fsgame.ltx respectively.

thank god, doing that now!

On a side note, when I started playing I had mouse4 / mouse5 (side buttons) as lean left / lean right

but they stopped working, and now if I bind them to lean left or right (to the mouse side buttons) it no longer works still - any idea why?

Dunno, did your user.ltx get replaced also?

I assume your mouse 4 and mouse 5 are called that.

If you, you could open up the console and type:

bind llookout mouse4 bind rlookout mouse5

or vice versa.

after doing that in console, it re-bound my mouse4 mouse5 to lean left lean right in options - but still didn't work in game.

I have a program that can rebind my keys (aka mouse4 / mouse5) to any keys, I.E.... numpad + and numpad - keys) and then bind in game lean left/right to numpad + numpad - ultimately: Letting me lean! had to do this in SoC

Only downside... when using other programs/web browsers, I can't go back/forward pages with those buttons until I set them back to their default mouse4 mouse5 instead of numpad + numpad -

Having any 3rd party mouse software that configures your mouse buttons will make those extra buttons useless in Stalker SOC and CS, as that software is still running in windows and obviously setup to make your extra button emulate another key. You will just need to exit the software before launching your Stalker game so the game can use all your mouse buttons. Same thing with me, I use Microsoft Mouse and IntelliPoint software. I have 5 buttons plus scroll wheel. I can only use left, right & scroll in games unless I exit the IntelliPoint software through the Task Manager (CTRL+ALT+DEL) before launching a game. Not all games do it, but most do. In future, don't use other people's FSGAME.LTX, edit it yourself. You just need to have that one word changed. Just like I found one mod that says it'll increase your game's FPS. The guy gives you a USER.LTX with all the graphics settings changed. Sure it works for him but it's not going to work for most. As this will change your games entire setup for the graphics.

Logitech G3 MX/518 optical - works nice, has sensitivity adjusters (fully customizable) obviously left right buttons, middle wheel scroll +button, and 2 side buttons and another button that works as an alt+tab (brings up a GUI from the pointer, and lets you click what to switch to)

I think it goes 1800 DPI, which is nice, I max it out, and lower sensitivity in games for smooth results. I've had it for a few years. Very hand friendly. (ergonomic natural presses (especially the side buttons I just modified so I can lean in game))

My mouse4/mouse5 side buttons were working fine (with my SetPoint active in taskbar) for leaning, then I changed them into switching weapons, and decided I want to set the buttons BACK to leaning - thats when they stopped working.

Now I use the Emulate option? in my SetPoint which turns them into another keystroke ( I used 2 unused numpad keys) and bound those numpad keys for lean left/right in the options/controls of STALKER CS

And now when I press mouse4/5 it emulates the numpad keys I bound to Lean Left/Right - making me lean :)

The Mouse4/5 still work with other commands in game with SetPoint running, just not LEAN. So I set emulator in SetPoint and rebound in CS.

The + and - on the NUMPAD are used for something in the Stalker games. It will show / hide your HUD.
