    Although the PC version of Oblivion handles best when played with a keyboard and mouse, it is possible to play the game with an assortment of game pads as well. Due to the variance in these game pads, it may be necessary to make a few changes to the Oblivion.ini file located in My Documents\My Games\Oblivion. Below is a list of the settings that can be changed to make a Xbox 360 controller attached to a PC, function better with Oblivion. It should be noted however, that because the PC version of the game was optimized to play with a keyboard and mouse, the experience will NOT be the same, as using a 360 controller on the Xbox 360 version of the game. Additionally, these settings can be applied to other game pads, but the values represented may need to be tweaked further. Finally, the mapping of the buttons will need to be determined when entering the game, and can be changed in Options - Controls, from the Main Menu - Do NOT map the directional controls (Forward, Backward, Left, Right), as this will overwrite certain changes made in the Oblivion.ini file.

    These are the default settings in the Oblivion.ini:
    ;X = 1, Y = 2, Z = 3, XRot = 4, YRot = 5, ZRot = 6

    iJoystickMoveFrontBack=2
    iJoystickMoveLeftRight=1
    fJoystickMoveFBMult=1.0000
    fJoystickMoveLRMult=1.0000
    iJoystickLookUpDown=6
    iJoystickLookLeftRight=3
    fJoystickLookUDMult=0.0020
    fJoystickLookLRMult=0.0020

    Change to these values to get better functionality from a 360 game pad connected to a PC.
    ;X = 1, Y = 2, Z = 3, XRot = 4, YRot = 5, ZRot = 6
    iJoystickMoveFrontBack=2
    iJoystickMoveLeftRight=1
    fJoystickMoveFBMult=2.0000
    fJoystickMoveLRMult=2.0000
    iJoystickLookUpDown=5
    iJoystickLookLeftRight=4
    fJoystickLookUDMult=0.7500
    fJoystickLookLRMult=0.7500

    Make sure the settings are saved. Note, changes to the Oblivion.ini file will not be saved if Oblivion is running when the changes are made.
