Hi!
I've tried to import my Cider Morrowind save files to OpenMW with openmw-essimporter, but I've got this errors:

Code: Select all

$ openmw-essimporter original-saves/default0000.ess saves/default0000.omwsave
unknown record REGN (0x1297b)
unknown record SPLM (0x1abfb7)
I'm using Mac OS X 10.11.1 with OpenMW 0.36.1.
Here's my main save file: https://www.dropbox.com/s/u8nqonmepi7e9 ... 0.ess?dl=0
Could anyone please help?
(sorry for my english, it's not my native language)

That's not an error, it's just a portion of the save file that's not recognized yet. Does the converted save work?

I can't load any save inside OpenMW, there's no such option in main menu. Save files are in place though:

Code: Select all

$ ls saves
default0000.omwsave  quicksave.omwsave
Also, I noticed that bunch of *.tga files was generated during import, but they are outside 'saves' dir:

Code: Select all

$ ls
data/            fog_-2_-1.tga  fog_-3_-7.tga  fog_-8_3.tga  fog_1_-3.tga
original-saves/  fog_-2_-2.tga  fog_-3_-8.tga  fog_-8_4.tga  fog_1_2.tga

OMG, I've nailed it... It turns out OpenMW stores each character saves in different directory in 'saves', so all I had to do was create directory with my character name (not sure if that was necessary to use exact name) and move *.omwsave and *.tga files to that directory (not sure if *.tga files are used though). Works like a charm now! Thank you, scrawl!

UPD
My journal is empty now (I guess, that's because original save wasn't in english), and all the mages in Balmora are dead. I don't think it's plot twist :( I guess I would have to start anew...

When I try to import my save file, I get the following output:

I have attached the save that causes this issue.

Hello!

I never had a chance to play Morrowind in the past and found a copy of the game in a thrift store, and now I'm totally digging it! The game is wonderful, but I'm tired of launching it through PlayOnLinux, so I installed OpenMW. I tried the ESS importer but, unfortunately, my attempts to convert my ess saved games came up with these negative results:

Code: Select all

leto@Oasis:~/.PlayOnLinux/wineprefix/TES3_Morrowind/drive_c/Program Files/Bethesda Softworks/Morrowind/Saves$ openmw-essimporter Melchior0000.ess test.omwsave
Loading config file: /home/leto/.config/openmw/openmw.cfg... done.
Loading config file: /etc/openmw/openmw.cfg... done.
unknown record REGN (0x119df)
Error: ESM Error: Unknown subrecord
  File: Melchior0000.ess
  Record: CREA
  Subrecord: INDX
  Offset: 0x1f2d3
I attached my saved game to this post. I hope it's helpful. I would be thrilled to be able to play my character on OpenMW!

I don't see this issue, which version are you using? I get some errors, but the coverter does not crash

Using a really old version:

I don't see issues with this one, either:

Hi there,

I have the same problems as sanchezman. I am using Linux Mint (i.e. Ubuntu). Are you testing with a different version and also on a different operating system?

I'm on windows x64, a couple of versions behind the current master, if that makes any difference (I don't think the essimporter has changed much lately)
