Hi waldo123,
Last time I had this issue, it was that I wasn't using the newer Android path names correctly. My Path to game data files looks like this:

Code: Select all

/storage/emulated/0/Morrowind/Data-Files
. What does yours look like?

/storage/351c-64/morrowind/
morrowind.ini and folder "Games Files" or "Games-Files" are in "morrowind". i tried this two solution.

Try removing the hyphen between data files.

Linux in general (and so I think also Android) is case sensitive when it comes to filenames. Make sure you're correctly typing out the data-files name with the correct capitalisation.

Also, are you sure you're actually renaming the "Data Files" directory to "Data-Files"? Maybe try renaming the directory before you copy your Morrowind folder to your Android device. Also, maybe try browsing with a different file browser.

i have this bug in my device that when i rename a big folder like 'data files'. it becomes a file with 0byte size. didnt notice at first, but restarting my phone fixed it. so maybe this is happening to you as well?

It's interesting that the issue said something specifically about locating your data files, but the issue was with morrowind.ini. Glad it's sorted though.
