Description

When using a Gamepad (especially an Xbox controller?) the GUI should allow easy navigation without requiring the use of a mouse or keyboard for anything.

Examples of most if not all required GUI controls can be seen in the following video which shows the start of a new game on the XBox version of the original game:

Edit: Another YouTube video series of the game on XBox:

Required elements:
When in gamepad mode, in-game buttons should also indicate, graphically, the button on the (XBOX?) gamepad to press.
On-Screen keyboard support for Gamepads.
Navigation of the inventory, alchemy, enchantment screens, etc.
Navigation of dialogue screens and pop-up messages.
Navigation of the main menu, in-game menu, etc.
Whatever isn't mentioned here, but is necessary for playing the game without a mouse and keyboard.

Here is a video of Morrowind GOTY on an Xbox. It should give an idea of what sort of things this feature request encompasses, and what the UI would probably look like.

That was the video already linked in the description! :) Can you find a copy of the XBox manual?

If someone needs a digital Xbox manual, we have the scanned Xbox manual on our forum: https://forum.openmw.org/viewtopic.php?t=4430

Strange, but there is no Xbox manual on official Bethesda site: http://manuals.bethsoft.com/

Whoops! I knew I got that video from somewhere! I watched the video, then a few days later forgot where I saw it and thought it would be helpful to add it to this issue. Ah well, at least now people definitely won't miss it!
