author's profile notes
This profile is compatible with any standard PC Gamepad, Xbox 360 Controller, Playstation (PS4, PS3, PSX), or any similar devices
Here is my profile for the original splinter cell for the xbox 360 controller.

It should be almost like it was on the original xbox.

Feel free to amend this profile if you have a better idea of button placement.

Still working on the right stick "button" for zoom in and out.

**There is a problem, because "zoom in" and "zoom out" are tied to "Accelerate" and "Decelerate"; you cannot move while using the SC-20K. If anyone has a solution let me know**

V1.1 switched some buttons around
v1.2 mapped the sticks (thanks for Tsunami's help); moved buttons around.
Hi there, this is my first attempt at making a profile so I chose that game infamous for its unusual way of control : the mouse wheel control speed, which is very intuitive with a keyboard and mouse but pretty tricky to manage with a gamepad. Most of the profiles here are linking the mouse wheel to the up / down D-Pad, which is, for me, completely non intuitive. So, there's actually a way to fix that. In fact, the game recognizes partially a X360 pad with a little bit of tweaking, and thankfully, it recognizes the left stick. All you have to do first is to go wherever your game is installed, go to "system" and open "SplinterCellUser.ini". Then find the lines "JoyX=" and "JoyY=" and add so it looks like this :

JoyX=Axis aStrafe DeadZone=0.3
JoyY=Axis aForward DeadZone=0.3

Save and close, that's it, you've enabled full analog stick support in the game. To check that, once in game make a new profile (not sure it will work with your current profile), scroll your mouse wheel up so Sam is able to run and you can move around with the stick at your desired speed.

So now it's just a matter of how and what to map on the gamepad. Here it is :

A bit of explanation now ! It's mostly based on the Double Agent layout and the PS3 version of Splinter Cell. Although enabling analog support is a real benefit to move Sam around, it doesn't work with the lock-pick game, so that's why I mapped Up/Left/Down/Right to the D-Pad. You'll have to hold it to use your goggles or quicksave / quickload. I've mapped mouse wheel up to click right stick and mouse wheel down to hold right stick so you're able to zoom in / zoom out easily with your rifle and increasing / decreasing your max speed if you need it (i.e when you begin a level, speed is set to the lowest so you want to click 3 or 4 times to enable max speed). Otherwise I think everything else is pretty much self-explanatory for anyone who already played it on PC.

I hope you'll enjoy it :) And sorry if I did any mistake, English is not my native ^^
