I CANT EVEN GET IT TO WORK
I downloaded everything and it says that I dont have Morrowind game of the year edition. But I just bought it on steam what do I do?
You do have Oblivion, Morrowind and all their expansions installed first don't you?
Yes I have both and all expansions but it seems that the file doesn't recignise morrowind as game of the year edition
and I cant even find morrowinds folder
try manually selecting the directories for the morrowind exe & oblivion exe, for steam it should be in C:\Steam\SteamApps\common\morrowind or something similar and try that
it found the morrowind file now do I just do the same for oblivion?
yep, and it should install just fine for you, don't forget to enable the data files in the oblivion launcher once installed
if your oblivion is steam, it will be under the steam directory, if disc based it will be under the Bethesda directory
it said it successfully installed but what do I do now?
have you downloaded the big file? You need that aswell its the main assets of the mod:
if you get an error message its because the download quota is full so you'll need to wait for a while (i'd say no less than 12 hours to make sure there are available download slots again.
Then open up the Oblivion launcher, then data files and make sure the morroblivion esm is marked active. Then load up the game, new game and it should start up for you
in my oblivion data files for the launcher it just says "Morrowind" I activated it and I received a message in game telling me the mundus or whatever their realm is called has shifted is this related to morroblivion?
it is i believe yes, does your game start out like this? http://img818.imageshack.us/img818/2548/screenshot1l.jpg
I was using an existing file so no
should I create a new file? or can I just go to a location and then sail off to morrowind?
ah right if you downloaded thermadors big file i mentioned it includes his transport mod with it and this is how it starts. That message you got shows that the mod is installed so to access Vvardenfell with your current save you have to find 2 NPCs added to the game Jo'Tesh is on the deck of the ship outside Seyda Neen during the daytime. Kisimba is in the Imperial City Prison Courtyard during the daytime.
Pay them 1000 Gold & they will take you back & forth between Vvardenfell & Cyrodiil
I made a new char but the game was so fucked up all it was was just a yellow glitched boat with yellow error messages and the occasional person
Erm thats messed up you are missing a lot of meshes & textures. Just to clarify you did download the big file aswell it is vital that is installed aswell.
Check your load order aswell, i think morroblivion should be loaded pretty soon after Oblivion
yes I have the large file
What should I do to fix the textures problem?
This is going to sound like a pain but i'd suggest you uninstall everything, reinstall Oblivion, Morrowind all their official expansions & patches, the morroblivion big file & then the morroblivion master file & check Morrowind_ob.esm in the data files. This should give you a clean Morroblivion install. Also, make sure your texture size is set to large aswell.
make sure you have the right matching versions aswell i.e. the big file will have to be version 052 (lastest) aswell as the master
It has to be large for texture size? I also think i may have installed the wrong mod does the mod folder have a ton of stuff in it? mine only had like 4 things it in
No texture size doesn't have to be i just think it causes less problems with that. The big file you just extract into your Oblivion directory (it's like 2.5gb in size) the files should go in the right places (in windows vista & 7 you need to say yes to "do you want to merge this folder")
