Best and Easiest way to install for technologically Illiterate?

Post by doe127 » 07 Dec 2017, 22:46

Hey, I've been trying all afternoon to get Morrowind working. My main problem is my inability to download the morrowind files and have them be recognized by the OpenMW installer. I have Morrowind legally through Steam but since I'm on Mac, it won't let me download it. I've tried the method to trick it into downloading but it just comes up with "DISK WRITE ERROR" and I haven't found any resources to help me with that. I'd love to play Morrowind while on the go so any help would be very appreciated.

By the way, did you try this?
0. Completely stop the Steam client -> Quit option.
1. Find the App ID: which is 22320 (https://steamdb.info/app/22320/)
2. Locate your SteamApps folder. I assume it's the same as mine:
/Users/YOUR_USERNAME_HERE/Library/Application Support/Steam/steamapps/
Library is hidden, to see it, open a "Finder", then while pressing alt key, select "Go" from the top bar and you'll see that the option "Library" appears.
Or...advanced way...you can open a terminal and make it visible by typing "chflags nohidden Library".
3. In that folder, create a file named "appmanifest_22320.acf"
4. Save the following content in the file"AppState"
{
"AppID" "22320"
"Universe" "1"
"StateFlags" "1026"
}
5. Start the Steam Client and the download should start.
