If this ever gets implemented it could be a great way to get Steam Deck users to try out OpenMW.

I can't imagine there are that many assets required to make this feasible. Surely a supplemental pack could be created from free assets or from scratch. I love Morrowind on PC, but recently I played it on my Series X and the UI is just so well designed it feels a league above KB/M. I enjoyed it so much I played through a significant portion of the game in just a couple days.

I just had a thought. Different gamepads call the buttons differently. And even when they share the names A/B/X/Y, they still might not be layout the same way (see switch vs xbox iirc). I guess we should have one standard layout and name the UI image files according to that standard (say, A.svg, B.svg, etc)? So say that the B button is the bottom one, should the playstation "x"-button be named B.svg or should we simply make this a lua-config thing so that files can be named whatever and mods have to ship Lua scripts?

There are CC0 universal icon texture packs available, where basically you have several textures with the same UV layout and a mapping between a generic controller and UV coordinates, and you pick the texture that matches the layout of the controller you're using.
