What works

-Graphics are rendered flawlessly.

-Gameplay is perfect.

-Performance is close to that of windows.

What does not

-Copy protection (CD crack required)

-When the game first ran it displayed a message about being unable to run the MP3 sound, and then quits. Deleting the "Music" Folder in the morrowind directory solves this, but as a result the music doesn't play.

-The character image in the inventory screen doesn't display.

-Sound was choppy when using OSS and Sound acceleration. Set sound to ALSA and Hardware Acceleration to "Emulated"


What was not tested


-The construction set

-Anything beyond Seyada Neen(The starting area)

Hardware tested


  • GPU:
  • Driver:

HowTo / Notes

Minimized windows

2014-11-14 Admin note: the following was extracted from a user comment made on November 9th 2013, and may not be relevant to current Wine.

About windows getting minimized, the workaround is pretty simple : the MenuStates of the .ini file is reset everytime you launch the game, which causes it to define minimized windows. What you need to do is chmod it to read-only (chmod 444 does the trick) after having changed the MenuStates parameters to suitable window sizes.

I got it to work with around 50 mods, the thing is the .ini file needs to update the modlist, so you first need to run Morrowind with a writable .ini file (chmod 644 works like a charm), then you can kill the process immediately afterwards (wineserver -k after Ctrl+Alt+F1 for instance), chmod the .ini to 444 after checking the MenuStates section is still well and about, and launch the game !
