Should I get morrowind? - Page 2

post #11 of 21
1.I find the controls to be fine.
2.You can mod it to make it work on a widescreen.
3.Steam version is fine, you still can mod it and do whatever you like to it.
4.Mod it for graphics, play it right the first time...Then the second time mod the crap out of it.
5.Yes, it does.

I'm probably biased due to nostalgia, but I always thought Morrowind was superior to Oblivion. It felt like it was on another level in terms of immersion and exotic factor (come on, volcanic island covered in giant mushrooms and the like) I remember spending countless hours in that game trying to collect unique items to arrange them mah house (who didn't) or find new books to read. I think it took me at least a few weeks or longer to actually beat the main story because there was sooo much more to see and do.

The only real qualms I would have today going back to it would be probably be the combat system and cliffracers, ugh cliffracers. Here's to hoping Skyrim can deliver

Morrowind was better than Oblivion, or at least anyone who has played both generally says that. Just a lot more to do I think in morrowind.

Oblivion ate 600 hours out of my XBOX 360 life... ***... such an epic game without mods... c'mon I stacked paintbrush staircases for days on end... Lol...

Morrowind is dope tho, but Oblivion was just so epic

Auto scaled monsters were not my idea of fun (for oblivion) thankfully mods came out within days to fix all these little problems.

I would hate to play a game like this on a console solely because of all the mods you would be missing out on.

I'm thinking about getting morrowind. I haven't had too many SP games to play recently and I thought that it'd be a nice game to play. And I liked oblivion, completed every single major quest line, and spent 180h on it.

So I've got a whole bunch of questions for you to answer

1: Does the game feel playable? Controls are fine? No awkwardness in those?

2: Does the game support widescreen resolutions? If so, is it hor+ or vert-?

3: The steam version okay? (For everything.) Any downsides?

4: Do you guys recommend that I mod it or should I just play it vanilla?

5: Does it work with win7 x64?

Thanks for all the help (if I'll receive any frown.gif )


Cheers.
1. You are extremely slow when your character is new. Unbearably so (it looks like you move in slow-mo). The only solution is to either get the Boots of Blinding Speed asap, or to make a character with high speed (which is a waste). Fighting is also frustrating for new players because swinging your sword at an enemy doesn't mean you hurt him, you need good agility/level/skill to hit your opponent.

2. Looked fine in widescreen last time I played it.

3. The only 'downside' to Steam is that you may need to do an additional step when modding the game (use a modding tool to modify the 'date' of the main files, so that mod files are 'newer' and take effect).

4. Play it vanilla gameplay wise (maybe add in mods as you see fit, some people can't bear the huge amount of cliff racers in the game, or the slowness) but add graphical mods (that don't change the original look of the game too much) like the Morrowind Graphics extender.

5. Works fine.

Most people who played Morrowind find it a superior gaming experience to Oblivion.
If you ever wondered what a journey through a truly foreign land was like, this is the game.

Got it now. MGE isn't working though. It does set the resolution at 1920x1080, but there's no MGE text during start up, there's no AA, nothing...

http://sourceforge.net/apps/mediawiki/morrgraphext/index.php?title=No_effect

None of the issues on that page seem to fit. I have only 1 morrowind, I haven't renamed anything, I installed them the way the guide told me to, I'm using the .exe and I have the latest version...

Before installing MGE, I did modify the dates of the morrowind, tribunal and bloodmoon bsa files..

What do?

There is a step by step tutorial somewhere, let me see if I can find it.

I saw all those. After 40 minutes of semi active searching, I found the answer. Apparently you aren't allowed to use the steam overlay although none of the guides mention that. Many of them mention steam but nothing 'bout the overlay

Ah, well neither did my step by step guide. tongue.gif

There are also tons of texture mods, environment mods and lighting mods that make it look AMAZING
