Installing Tribunal and Bloodmoon question

Post by Thatstinkyguy »

I've installed and played through a bit of the base game utilizing OpenMW, without having installed Tribunal and Bloodmoon. However, I would like to install these into OpenMW. Is there any way to install the expansions on top of my existing installation with OpenMW, and will they be able to integrate into my saved game file?

Thank you for your time!

Find the Tribunal.bsa and Tribunal.esm files. And put them in the same directory of the Morrowind.esm file.

Then edit your openmw.cfg file so that Tribunal is used:

Code: Select all

fallback-archive=Morrowind.bsa
fallback-archive=Tribunal.bsa

[....]

content=Morrowind.esm
content=Tribunal.esm
For bloodmoon is very similar, just add the files Bloodmoon bsa and esm below Tribunal

Bloodmoon at least, probably Tribunal too, has loose files that need to be installed too. I don't remember if the OpenMW installation wizard allows installing the expansions on an existing install or not, but presuming any mods you have are installed into separate folders as recommended, you can try that. Alternatively, on Windows you can install Tribunal and Bloodmoon normally, install the latest Tribunal and Bloodmoon patches as needed, then add the bsas and esms to openmw.cfg as previously mentioned.
