Settings file used by S.T.A.L.K.E.R., a first-person shooter game; contains parameters for game engine properties such as the physics model settings, graphics, and weapon characteristics; stored in a plain text format and sometimes "modded" to customize gameplay.

Players can also adjust game engine settings in the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. in-game console (press tilde "~" to activate it). These adjustments are saved to the User.ltx file, which is located in the game installation . However, it is recommended to backup the existing User.ltx file before making changes.

The User.ltx file is located in the following directories ("SHOC" stands for Shadow of Chernobyl and you should replace "SHOC" with "COP" for Call of Pripyat):

Windows XP: C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Shared Documents\STALKER-SHOC\

An LTX file is a text document created by a LaTeX program, such as MiKTeX or TeXworks. It contains LaTeX typesetting markup tags and properties that define the document structure and content. LTX files typically include the actual document text but may also reference the text from other files.

You can open LTX files with various LaTeX applications, such as MiKTeX (multiplatform), TeXworks (multiplatform), Texmaker (multiplatform), and LyxMac (macOS).

Since LTX files are saved in plain text, you can open and edit the files with a plain text editor, such as Microsoft Notepad (bundled with Windows) or Apple TextEdit (bundled with macOS). However, these text editors do not provide helpful LaTeX syntax highlighting features provided by LaTeX applications.
