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 optionĀ enabled.

The controls for Oblivion were originally made/optimized for a keyboard/mouse and not a game pad/controller, so that is why they don't run as smoothly as the Xbox 360 Controls do for Skyrim.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


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:
To delete save files/drop items, hold down the Up D-Pad button without letting go and click RT.
Thanks to goblinmoshpit for the suggestion on how to fix the moving camera bug!
