Making Example Suite not require Morrowind to be installed

Post by Thunderforge » 12 Jun 2017, 18:35

As I understand, it needs Morrowind.ini, which comes with that game. Would it be very difficult to change it so that Example Suite can provide this file itself (or OpenMW can create it)? Are there other barriers that would need to be overcome to make OpenMW be able to run Example Suite without Morrowind?

I've seen other discussions about how we are wanting OpenMW to be seen as not just a Morrowind engine, but a standalone game engine (which will give it greater prominence in the Ubuntu repositories, among other things). I think one thing that would go a long way for this is to make it so that the user seems that they are given the option to install Example Suite when they start up OpenMW for the first time (addressed in this topic), but of course that would mean that they would have to be able to play the game without having Morrowind installed.

Already working on a default we can use. :)

Give me a few days.
