No character voices or moving mouths- macOS Mojave

Post by theimmortalmoo » 29 Mar 2019, 16:13

System Specs
OS: macOS Mojave v.10.14.4
Hardware: MacBook Pro - Radon Pro 560/2.9GHZ Intel i5/16GB Ram
Morrowind Installation Source:
OpenMW Versions: First used "OpenMW-0.44.0.dmg" Issue persisted then I used "OpenMW-28032019-886c77bc.dmg".

Problem:
All spoken NPC dialogue will not play. The mouths will not move.

Example:
Using OpenMW-0.44.0.dmg.
Music and opening Cinematic dialogue works, not a "overall" sound issue.
New Game, after Azura talks to you and Jiub tells you to wake up.When you are no longer in the cinematic, no dialogue is played and mouths do not move. Eventually the guard walks to you and also does not say anything and no dialogue plays.
When he goes upstairs I am able to leave, but no one has dialogue playing.
I made a new character and and turned on subtitles. No subtitles display.

Then I used "OpenMW-28032019-886c77bc.dmg"
Everything mentioned above is still occurring, except subtitles do display.

Troubleshooting Steps Taken:
Tried the latest nightly.
Reinstalled (using the Steam version)
Verified other sound sources are working.

I can wipe my PC and install a fresh copy of Mojave if that will help with troubleshooting.
Please let me know what I can do to assist with identifying the problem for any future users.

Additional Troubleshooting:
Reinstalled OS to same version.
Reinstalled Steam. Reinstalled Morrowind. Reinstall OpemMW.
Tested...and working.

Now to see what caused the issue. I am going to reinstall applications to see if I can get it to break again.

Well I am an idiot. Not an issue with MacOS not an issue with another "Program" on my computer.

The issue I was encountering was due to a Mod/Official Plugin

Either the official Plugins here https://en.uesp.net/wiki/Morrowind:Plugins w/New Files/Meshes...etc
OR
it was the Sixth House Mod or the Great House of Dagoth Mod.

I've tried just using the Morrowind + Tribunal + Bloodmoon and not activating the other mods. The issue seems to be due to replacing something in Sounds/Textures/Meshes and etc.

Hopefully the time I wasted will save others time.
