Proper Controller Support?

Post by Candlemaster » 13 Sep 2012, 08:32

I know that many PC gamers prefer using a keyboard and mouse, but personally, I'm not one of them. I have an Xbox360 controller that I use for PC games whenever possible. I know that vanilla PC Morrowind has an option that supports joysticks, but the controller support is practically unusable, making it impossible to play without using something like Xpadder, and even then it's hardly satisfying.

Will OpenMW be offering proper controller support, perhaps mimicking the behavior of the Xbox version for those who use controllers?

Yes, I've seen that thread, and that's not what I'm referring to. What I'm asking about is whether or not the "joystick" option will be changed to allow me to play with my xbox360 controller (for example), and be able to play without needing something like Xpadder running in the background. I prefer using a mouse inside the menu anyway.

It shouldn't be a big problem to make. But probabbly after reaching 1.0 ─ this is our primary target after all.
