tl;dr - Download the mod of your choice, put the files in a folder, open the configuration file with the program you choose, JoyToKey or Xpadder, keep the program open while playing the game.

If using JoyToKey version, make sure in the Options menu in the far right under the Show/Hide Buttons box that "Show all axes (8 way + POV x 4)" is the option selected since it won't work well without that option enabled.

If you're using the JoyToKey version of this mod and you've experienced your camera moving in a direction where one of your sticks is barely pointing to or it has you walking in a weird way, I feel that it's an issue with JoyToKey itself, as I set this up the same way with the Xpadder version of this mod and have never experienced that issue once with Xpadder, but I'll continue to look into it and see if I can figure out how to fix this issue.

Update 1:
I'm looking into making a version where you can delete saves files normally in menu like you can do on the 360/the ability to drop items from menu like you can do on the 360.

Note 1:
Let me know what you guys think of Version 2.0!

Update 2:
I re-uploaded my Main JoyToKey file because some of the controls were messed up for the block key/the D-Pad Move through menus key.

Note 2:
Wow, 12 endorsements, thank you guys! This is now my most endorsed mod! And I love all the nice/helpful comments you guys have been making, and if you have any suggestions to help improve this mod/want a certain setup that I haven't already released yet, I would more then willing to accommodate, so if you have any suggestion(s)/any request, don't be afraid to ask!

Update 3:
I just realized that JoyToKey was updated in May of this year, so I decided to update the files with the newest version of JoyToKey. Let me know if you guys find any difference in the newest files compared to the older ones!

Update 4:
I was just mad aware of a possible issue with the JoyToKey versions of this mod, so if any of you guys had any problems with setting up the JoyToKey versions of my mod, could you please pm me screenshots of them so I can confirm if this is just an isolated case, or something that applies to more users?

Update 5:
Let me know if you guys have any problems with the new JoyToKey versions or not.

Note 3:
To delete save files/drop items, hold down the Up D-Pad button without letting go and click RT.

The controls for Oblivion were originally made/optimized for a keyboard/mouse and not a game pad/controller, so that is why they don't run as smoothly as the Xbox 360 Controls do for Skyrim.

Within the past few days, I think I may have found a pretty good controller scheme for Oblivion using an Official Xbox 360 Controller (Wired or Wireless) and an application called, "JoyToKey" or "Xpadder" but keep in mind that if you want to use a Wireless Controller, you will need to get a Wireless Gaming Receiver, so you can get to use it on a PC.


After a lot of tinkering, experimenting & frustration, I think that you can use the Xbox 360 Controller in a fairly playable manner for Oblivion.

In order to do this, you need to install JoyToKey.


Or buy Xpadder:


Once you download JoyToKey/buy Xpadder, make a folder called, "JoyToKey" or "Xpadder" and put the files that come with the JoyToKey/Xpadder download into the, "JoyToKey" folder or "Xpadder" folder and put that folder into the install directory where the Oblivion.exe/OblivionLauncher.exe file(s) is located, or on your desktop. Any place it fine, as long as you remember what you named your folder/where you put it.

Once you do that, go to your Oblivion.ini and make sure these settings are set in your ini:

";X = 1, Y = 2, Z = 3, XRot = 4, YRot = 5, ZRot = 6
bBackground Mouse=0
bBackground Keyboard=0
bUse Joystick=0"

(Without the quotation marks ")

If these aren't the settings in your ini, the game act all funky/weird if they're set to "=1". (Oblivion.ini file is located in C:/Users/Username/Documents/My Games/Oblivion.

Once you're done doing those things, you can begin to start configuring your preferred settings for your Xbox 360 Controller on JoyToKey/Xpadder.

Note 1:
In order for this to work, you need to have JoyToKey/Xpadder running in the background while playing Oblivion. I would recommend minimizing the application when playing Morrowind so it doesn't take up space on the desktop.

Note 2:
If you notice your mouse arrow moving a little bit by its own/your character moving a little bit by its own, it's because of some bug in the JoyToKey program, not my file, as I experience this bug whenever I use JoyToKey for Oblivion/any game that I use this program for.

Note 3: If you're planning on using the Xpadder version:
As of now, Xpadder isn't free anymore, it's $9.99 on his website, but if you have the newest version of Xpadder, or an older version of Xpadder, (I don't see how an older version wouldn't work with my Xpadder files) then you can use them with whatever version of Xpadder you have.

Note 4:
Make sure that when you have JoyToKey/Xpadder and you editing your controls to your liking, that your sneak key isn't set to toggeled, or it will act weird/not as responsive as if you were to leave it untoggled.

Note 5:
Thank you, Sir Lauren, for your endorsement!
