[Read First] Support FAQ

Post by Jyby » 10 May 2017, 03:01

Introduction

Getting things setup and working for you is important to us, but so is our time. So in order to make things easier for all of us we're compiling a knowledge base with frequently encountered problems and solutions. We'll keep this knowledge base comprehensive and up to date to the best of our ability.

If you don't find a solution to your problem here you can search the forums. If a forum search is exhausted feel free to make a post in our Support Subforum. Note: we may only have an answer for the latest version of OpenMW.

Eventually this FAQ will migrate to the official OpenMW ReadTheDoc. This will become a useful offline resource later on.

Before you submit a bug report for the first time, please read our Bug Reporting Guidelines.

BEWARE THE ADVICE BELLOW IS IMPROVING AND INCOMPLETE, PLEASE SEARCH THE FORUMS IF YOU DON'T FIND ANSWERS HERE.

What are the minimum system requirements for OpenMW?

OpenMW is actively being developed and improved. This makes it nearly impossible to estimate system requirements as the program code keeps changing. Post version 1.0, OpenMW will be optimized and we'll have a better idea of the actual system requirements. But you can do the following to determine if OpenMW will work on your machine: Why does Tribunal need to load before Bloodmoon?

Unlike the original Morrowind engine, the OpenMW engine was designed to require both expansion packs to work. You must have the Tribunal.esm selected before the Bloodmoon.esm under the Data Files tab of the OpenMW Launcher.

What are the settings in settings.cfg?

There are many advanced settings you can configure in the settings.cfg file that extend or change the behavior of the game. These settings are not available in the menu options when playing OpenMW and you must restart your game before they take effect. You can find out more about each setting here.
