[SOLVED] Installing Morrowind on my Mac

Post by Peteroo » 15 Dec 2018, 19:24

Good morning, all!

I have the Steam version of Morrowing GotY installed on my Mac under Crossover, but find that OpenMW's wizard doesn't recognize this as an existing installation -- doubtless because the emulation layer gets in the way. I figure I need to copy & paste the files from within Crossover to the Mac proper -- but this task does not seem to be within my limited skillset. :) Can someone instruct me on how to do this, let me know if in fact it's not do-able or refer me to a relevant topic. (I searched but didn't find one.)

Many thanks!

Peter

If the wizard is unable to detect an installation of Morrowind, you must manually naviagate to the Morrowind data files from it.

I must have made an error in my earlier cutting and pasting. Fixed and running! :) Now I just have to find a mod to make the typeface bigger -- and figure out how to installl it. Can anyone offer suggestions on that score?

This one is super sharp and you can scale it. Can't remember exactly how though. Akortunov knows more than I do.
