What is an AMGP file?

An AMGP file is a configuration file used by AntiMicro and its successor, AntiMicroX. It contains XML-format data used to map gamepad buttons to keyboard buttons, mouse buttons, scripts, or macros. Typically, users create and edit AMGP files with AntiMicro or AntiMicro X. However, you can also open and edit AMGP files with any text editor.

Primarily, AntiMicro and AntiMicroX allow gamers to use gamepads to play PC video games that do not include gamepad support. To do so, users create an AntiMicro profile, or AMGP file, that contains settings that map gamepad buttons to keyboard and mouse buttons.

Typically, each AntiMicro profile contains settings for a specific game. For example, a gamer might create a profile that allows them to play Doom 3 with a gamepad, rather than their keyboard and mouse. The gamer could then run AntiMicro or AntiMicroX, load their Doom 3-specific profile, and use it to play Doom 3 with their gamepad.

While creating an AntiMicro profile, users can also map scripts and macros to gamepad buttons. This allows users to automate and perform complex actions just by pressing one or more gamepad buttons.

NOTE: Several template AMGP files are available on AntiMicroX's GitHub page.

How to open an AMGP file

You can open and edit an AMGP file with AntiMicroX or AntiMicro. To do so, you must first connect an appropriate gamepad to the application. Then, select that controller within AntiMicro X and click Load. For more complete information about how to create and use AMGP files, refer to AntiMicroX's wiki.

If you'd like to view the settings an AMGP file contains outside AntiMicroX and AntiMicro, you can open it with Microsoft Visual Studio Code or any other text editor.
