When zooming to the iron sights or scope I can't fire the weapons. I have modded many of the weapon values to give more stopping power and ammo, but I have not been able to find any data concerning this problem. This will be a classic game! I love to be able to apply mods to make it more playable to my liking, but there are so many variables, i.e. food, weight, endurance, radiation and so many more, that it becomes trying at times. There's nothing worse than sprinting through a field with a dozen killers chasing you, then you slow to a walk due to various issues. Not to mention that their weapons have better range, accuracy and stopping power than yours. I spent two years in Vietnam and it wasn't this vicious!!! If you stop to dump some inventory someone or something's going to get you! I love it!!!

I have no problem shooting with scopes or ironsights...
The shooting in STALKER isnt like your normal FPS, YOU actually have to be good at it and not just level up to improve your accuracy
to increase your accuracy, change the values in the line "fire_dispersion_base" the lower the values the higher the accuracy.
find that line in any weapon .ltx file located here:
?:\Program Files\THQ\S.T.A.L.K.E.R. - Shadow of Chernobyl\gamedata\config\weapons or in the unique_items file in the misc folder....
enjoy your accuracy
It's not an accuracy issue. All guns will not fire, i.e. when the trigger is pulled, when using the iron sights or scope (RMB). It's like toggling the sights disables my LMB. I have already adjusted the files for accuracy and have no problems hitting targets even at long ranges, allowing for drop and wind.
Are you using a special mouse of have you changed the key binding for the "sight in" button?
I've tried binding a different key with no luck. I'm using a Logitech marble mouse, which is getting old. I'm going to dig out a different mouse tomorrow to see if that changes things. I'll post what I find out.

YOU'RE USEING A TRACK BALL FOR AN FPS?! WTF!!!
Yeah, definitely change that mother out. If anything, it can't handle sending the signals of both buttons being pushed or something.
If a different mouse doesn't work, then I'm fresh out of ideas.
@MOUNTAINBOB: If your mouse is as old as I think it is, you'll definitely need to update.
@ZanderArch: Trackball mice FTW. Flick the ball and you can do a full 180 spin. Definitely useful.
No. I couldn't imagine playing an FPS with a track ball. Hell, your sniping would be a total bitch. Either you strain your middle finger to aim or you have to slow your reaction time by aiming with your index. And I have no idea how you'd aim in a CQB situation.
It just sounds like a bad idea. But if it works, it works.
Nah, thumb-ball. Get a trackball mouse with the ball where your thumb is; if the mouse is large/spaced out well, it's pretty comfortable. It takes a bit of getting used to, of course.
