So I finally got to download the latest release build from github and started testing it, Other than the red sky and the loading screen bug I came across these bugs for me:
- The vanilla game works find but it's laggy compared to the last april 2018 release and crashes sometimes in interiors or exteriors, physics fps on 60 is better for me than 30.
Tried this with both mainline and openmwfork (has some weird graphical bugs).

My problem with mods:
- Launching a new game with any number of mods (tested with removing mod one by one from the list) will work fine untill you come out the ship the game will crash.
- Loading a vanilla savegame with mods will crash the game (also tried testing with removing mods one by one from the list).
Tried all of the above with both mainline and openmwfork.

So the last april 2018 release is stabler (with or without mods) for me and it seems like it's the only way for me to play Morrowind on Android but it has a texture bug, textures aren't connected correctly and wrong ground textures all over the place and it only uses vanilla textures instead of modded ones, is there any work around for this?

Also thanks xyzz for continuing maintenance of the Android port.

The red sky (and red character model in the inventory screen, and red mini map) bug is only in the latest snapshot. Just download the one before, that should work fine.

Not really. I found that lower resolution (I've set it to 720p with Samsung Game Launcher & Game Tuner) and lower view distance helps a lot. The port isn't very optimized yet, so there's a lot of stuttering and fps frops going on. Still, with these tweaks, I'm getting decent performance on a Galaxy S7 edge, and very good performance an S9+ (both Exynos w/ Mali gpu).

I too get good performance on my 4 years old Sony Xperia Device, although the port does crash from time to time, and Balmora isn't accessible for me playing on the latest two releases, does some of you have the same issue?

It's for developers to debug crashes.
