1.6 Patch on Mac

Post by naranjero » 29 Mar 2020, 20:24

Hi, I'm trying to get OpenMW patched with the official 1.6 patch on a Mac. I was able to get the steam version of the game installed and running, everything is very smooth and I'm super excited to play Morrowind again! So a big thank you to everyone who put in work on this project.

I had about a billion mods on my old Windows version of the game but never Tamriel Rebuilt, so I decided now I will finally play it, but it requires the 1.6 patch which I am unable to use on a Mac. How would I go about fixing that? Can I patch the Morrowind.exe on a Windows machine and then bring it back over and copy/replace the one on my Mac? Or does the patch effect more than just Morrowind.exe?

I assume that you are referring to the morrowind patch project version 1.6 here, but I am pretty sure that the morrowind patches are not OpenMW compatible. I am not a dev, and I would ask one of the devs to be sure.

No, sorry for the confusion, but not the Morrowind Patch Project. I need the Bloodmoon 1.6.1820 patch from the Bethesda website. http://patches.bethsoft.com/

OpenMW doesn't use the Morrowind.exe file, it is a replacement for it. It just uses the data files. As long as you have the data files installed and OpenMW, you should be good to go.

Ah thanks! Just went ahead and tried it and it works.

As an aside, the Steam version of Morrowind is fully patched with the latest 1.6 bloodmoon patch from Bethesda.
