Morrowind PC Game with Xbox 360 Controller

#1SpudkittyPosted 7/31/2009 7:07:25 PM

I have Morrowind GOTY for the PC andWindows Vista 32 bit. I would like touse my X360 controller and have download the driver from Microsoft which connects the X360 controller to the PC. But I can't get Morrowind to recognize the controller. I have read that people have been able to play the PC version with an X360 controller, so I am wondering why mine isn't working.

Any ideas? I would appreciate some help from knowledgeable gamers!

Morrowind isn't really built for Joysticks. Use Xpadder to map keyboard keys to your Controller's buttons, and you should be able to play fairly decently with a controller.

^ this video shows you how to use Xpadder. I'm pretty sure it has a link in the description to download xpadder. I use it to play morrowind, among other games for PC. Works like a charm.
Let's not and say we did.

You need a plug and play USB device, or a wired controller. The charging station does not count as a wired controller, sadly.=/
