    I think you need a third party program called Xpadder that costs around $10 but beyond that I have no idea...I play with mouse and keyboard.

    I've been playing with this since beta. A few tweaks here and there and you're good.

    It would be fantastic if they would implement the console UI (optional of course) and controller support on PC. ZoS... pleeeez make this happen.

    It seems that this is planned for after the console release, with no info on when that might be:

    This is something we are shooting for and it's a goal to have gamepad support for the PC version of the game, but this won't be available at the same time as the console release.
    I hear you on the enjoyment of using a controller with the game. I go back and forth myself!

    For your second question, we're definitely looking to add controller support to the PC game (including the same UI as console), but that won't be available until after console launch.

    Hey Lukar115, we'd like to add gamepad support for the PC. I'm the same way, I play some PC games with a controller as well so I understand where you're coming from :). It's not something that will arrive at the same time as the console launch but it's something we'd like to add in.

    Yes, it's something we're looking to add to the PC game, but it won't be available until after console launch

    Quick question. A neighbor loaned me a Xbox 360 controller. It says in the booklet that came with it to download the software to run the controller on a PC from Microsoft. Is that necessary or isn't it needed with Xpadder ?.

    I thought they said it will be available "sometime" after the console release? Where are you hearing it will be available on June 9th?

    I recently sorted out my controller support using Pinnacle

    the layout is SUPER simple and all action buttons are accessible I find I hit my 5th button more now than I did with keyboard and mouse.

    The twitch values are lower that's for sure and I still go down like a sack of &#*$ in VR combat (Vamp NB so what can you expect)

    Anyways its here if you want to try it out... I have shared it
