Re: Bethesda doing a Skyrim remaster, no Morrowind one thoug

Honestly I doubt Wine will be in such a state that the Skyrim Remaster will be worth the hassle out of the gate when you can just play regular Skyrim. I wouldn't be surprised if most of the issues aren't solved within 6 months or less though. Daggerfall had more NPCs. Granted they were randomly spaw...

Re: Bethesda doing a Skyrim remaster, no Morrowind one thoug

Morrowind is interesting in that it functions as a sort of clean break from the old games and then Oblivion pulled a lot of the old games back in. The thing is, while Morrowind lost a lot it also gained quite a bit. The smaller map is one thing, but it's much denser, more detailed, and each area is ...

Re: Bethesda doing a Skyrim remaster, no Morrowind one thoug

“Do you remember what it was like talking to someone and scrolling through this long list of questions. You put that out for someone that just finished Skyrim and they’re going to be like ‘What in the hell…?’” Honestly I agree with him on this. Not that Morrowind's systems are bad, far from it as t...

Re: Benchmarks

Could've sworn the PS2 had a 256 bit RAM bus width, and the Xbox had a 128 bit bus. EDIT: Ah, the Graphics Interface that draws things on screen is 64-bit. Huh, I never knew that. But the article I'm looking at says the GPU has a DRAM bandwidth of 2560-bit from 3 different buses: one read only, one ...

Re: Morrowind System Comparison Chart

Yes, and unless their official position shifts, I'll continue including that as a requirement. They aren't actually allowed to use ANY of the original assets per Bethesda shutting down Morroblivion for that reason IIRC. Presumably they'll just run some kind of point and check in an installer. Incid...

Re: Morrowind System Comparison Chart

Just because it doesn't pull data from Morrowind doesn't mean it doesn't REQUIRE Morrowind to run. The file is supposed to be a quick overview of the differences between them, and simply put you need Morrowind installed on your machine in order to play Skywind, regardless of whether or not Skywind u...

Re: Morrowind System Comparison Chart

I just played around in Skyrim for a bit and then checked my CPU Core loads in Sysinternals Process Explorer. I have hyper-threading so that might skew things a bit. My first thread was definitely taking most of the load at roughly 50% usage, but my last thread was hovering around 28, and the other ...

Re: Morrowind System Comparison Chart

I was under the impression that Skywind will support many Skyrim mods out of the gate such as combat overhauls, HD texture packs (to some extent), many visual effects mods, and many other mods that don't do anything to alter the world or Skyrim only content like Dragons. So even if existing Morrowin...

Re: Morrowind confessions

I'm not sure whether waterwalking is in Skyrim, but I think it is. It's in the Dragonborn expansion, but only on one specific pair of boots. You can't really do much with it. The key to what I was saying though, was combining Water Walking with the Boots of Blinding Speed. You can essentially creat...

Re: Morrowind confessions

The magic system shouldn't have been pared down because it had amazing utility that allowed you to tackle a vast range of situations in differing ways. I'd like to have some examples for that, because I really don't see how the magic system in Morrowind can be creatively used. Levitate can be used ...
