What works

­Installed just fine.

To fix Ragdoll from being upside downI had to apply the following registry settings.



[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Wine\AppDefaults\Morrowind.exe\X11 Driver]


Had trouble running the nocd patch so I didn't have to put the CD in to play.  The nocd patch is a COM executable so here's how you run it.  First copy BM161820.COM to the installed directory ~/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/Bethesda Softworks/Morrowind.  Then open the Wine Command Prompt with the command "wineconsole cmd" and run the following command sequence:

cd \Program Files\Bethesda Softworks\Morrowind
copy Morrowind.exe Morrowind.exe.bak
copy Morrowind.exe morrow~2.exe
copy morrow~2.exe Morrowind.exe
del morrow~2.exe

Additional Comments

I found the registry fix for the Ragdoll from another users test data but instead I applied it to just the game Morrowind.exe rather than applying those settings globally to all games. NOTE: The Ragdoll is the little character figure in your inventory

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 !
