Download Wrapper Morrowind (The Elder Scrolls III)
In Tribunal, you journey to the capital city of Morrowind, called Mournhold, to meet the other two god-kings of Morrowind, Almalexia and Sotha Sil. Your journey will lead you to the Clockwork City of Sotha Sil and massive, epic-sized dungeons, where strange and deadly creatures await you, including goblins, lich lords, and the mysterious Fabricants.
Bloodmoon takes you to the frozen Island of Solstheim where you'll experience snow, blizzards, and new creatures, including frost trolls, ice minions, and wolves... just to name a few. You'll have a choice of stories to follow and have the opportunity to defend the colony, take control over how the colony is built up, and eliminate the werewolves. Or, you can decide to join the werewolves and become one of them, opening up a whole new style of gameplay.
Keep an eye on the OpenMW project, which intends to recreate the Morrowind engine and port it to several operating systems. Currently they are in pre-alpha, so have fun with this port in the meantime
tested Game-Version: German English retail release with Tribunal and Bloodmoon (those wondering, UbiSoft first published an untranslated version so they could release it earlier)
Genre: Western RPG
UESP Wiki has all you would want to know
My System Specs:
- OS: Mac OS X 10.7 Lion
- CPU: 2.66 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
- RAM: 4 GB
- Video: NVIDIA GeForce 9400 256 MB
- Port Disk Space: 1.5 GB
- you might need MSVCP60.DLL, if so just find it with google and place it inside the wrapper wehre you installed morrowind (e. g. c_drive:/Program Files/Morrowind)
- framerate drops in towns (this happens to Windows user as well)
- construction set does not work
- gamma slider in the game does not work, used Wineskin's gamma slider
- changing key bindings inside the game can get you stuck. There are ways around this, as discussed at the AppDB. Personally I went to the registry, found the keys for Jump and Activate and just swapped those
- Launch Morrowind.app, choose "Install Windows Software" and install the game using your retail CD or digital download
- Copy your installed game into the wrapper contents here: C/Program Files/..., launch Morrowind.app, choose Advanced and set the game's EXE as the Windows EXE
One user said th game was not accepting the retail disc, so maybe newer versions have better copy protection. If you can't find a crack you could buy Morrowind from Steam then.
Mods do work and they are installed and used the exact same way as on Windows. However it depends on the particular mod if it will work (e. g. Morrowind Graphics Extender won't work because it relies on native DirecX DLLs). In addition, the modding scene for Morrowind is a wasteland whith many original modders long gone and their work outdated and scattered all over the internet. Some mods will give you error messages if they are outdated, the manual says you can open those in the Construction Set and then save them, so they get updated. Or just ignore the messages. Here is a short list of mods I used:
- Morrowind FPS optimizer: I use it to play at higher resolution with a wider FOV and in widescreen. It has some other options but there is no documentation what exactly they do. Make sure not to use any of the n-Patches an leave all the checkboxes in "system" unchecked. Once you set up the game to your likings you can launch it the regular way instead of having to lanch the optimizer every time.
- Run like the Wind: a must have! Crawling at snail's pace through a vast 3D world is not fun at all. This mods lets you walk and run much faster and applies this to all other creatures so your character doesn't get superhero speed. It looks kind of silly, but it saves tons of time.
- Tireless Running: This one might be controversial, it lets you run without losing stamina, which is not how the game was designed. My time is limited and Morrowind is a really vast game, so I'm using this one as well.
- Better Heads V2: replaces the awful looking heads with nice looking ones. I don't mid the dated graphics but the heads were really awful. BTW, the version hosted at Planetelderscrolls is actually version 2 even though it says 1.1
- Vvardenfell Visages: basically the same thing as better heads, choose only one
- Morrowind Visual Pack: a bunch of high-reas texture, works fine but I didn't like the look
