Hard to say what is causing the crash from that little information, but something that is missing from your output is bsa loading. You should see something like:

Code: Select all

Adding /path/to/data/Morrowind.bsa
between the "Data directory:..." and "Loading ESM ..." lines - do you have any bsa files in the data dir? (If so, there's currently a bug that requires them to be named in lower case extension, ie. .bsa not .BSA, that might help.) However, I don't think a missing bsa should warrant a segfault, so there might be other problems.

I really do look forward to it being playable, as I don't have any Windows boxes, and I can't get the actual game working under WINE.
best regards,
