Since the launch of macOS Catalina, Apple now supports wireless controllers (Xbox One Bluetooth and PS4 DS) right out of the box, no third-party drivers or key-mappers required. These controllers work great in other games but the input is broken in The Elder Scrolls Online. Using the Xbox One Wireless Controller; character movement and panning of the camera works but everything else is broken (some buttons do not work at all, and others activate the wrong actions).
Steps to reproduce:
Connect an Xbox One Wireless controller via Bluetooth to macOS.
Enable Gamepad mode in ESO
Try to play with the controller, notice how broken the implementation is.
Please fix this! I'd love to play ESO using my Xbox One Wireless Controller.
Use this macOS App (or any other game with controller support, such as games from Apple Arcade or other games from Steam) to test gamepad input in macOS, see that it's not a driver issue but a coding/integration issue in ESO specifically:https://apps.apple.com/za/app/game-controller-tester/id1500593102?mt=12
