[Solved] Error locating data files

Post by MountainMan » 07 Aug 2019, 20:53

I'm trying to setup OpenMW to play the data files from my original Morrwind program that is installed on my PC on an android tablet.

I have created folders mw/data, and placed the folders and files from my Morrwind data folder within the mw/data folder I have also included the required .ini file.

It dose not make ANY deference where the files are located as I've tried the root of the tablet and the root of my sd card.

I always get the message:
Error locating data files
Please select a directory which contains both the "Morrowind.ini" file
and the "Data Files" directory.

I have tried openmw-0-46-0-17.apk and omw_release_0.46.0-18.apk and had the same results.

Can anyone suggest what I'm doing wrong?

TNX,

"I have created folders mw/data"

Woops the above should read mw/data-files
