Well, at last I have found some time to finish my gothic 3 profile. I have been using the official from pinnacle, but I never was too comfortable with all the settings, so instead of modifying it, I reworked everything.

Also, I would like to share the profile on other gothic fan forums, so I decided to create a explanatory layaout for quick reference (you can easily cut the logos if you plan to print it to save some ink) and of course to make others know about this wonderful software.

But before sharing it in other forums I would like to have some feedback here. I know this is not a very big forum in terms of population, but since here we all are familiar with PGP, just two or three comments about if the image is easy to understand would be great.

Of course, if you play Gothic 3 and have the chance to test the profile, that would be great too :) I have designed it to make it very easy to use, and has some actions that the official profile does not, like Take all and Potions (well, at least i could not find them).

Hope you like it.

I created a new controller layout for gothic 3, as the default ones are missing many functions which are important to me. With this layout, you can do almost everything, you can even use the quick assignments 1-8 (only 9 and 0 are missing). I used the arrow keys for movement control, as you can use the left thumb stick for conversations (confirm with "B", which is used for reconverting, too). Press and hold the left or right thumb sticks for running or sneaking. I didn't assign all menus to a button, as you can easily switch the menus with use of the sidebar. Quick save is mapped, too (load via menu).

Controls tested with Xbox 360 and Nvidia Shield (Tablet) Controller.
