Additional Comments

- GOTY users have to remount the CD to unhide hidden files. (e.g. sudo mount -o remount,unhide /media/Morrowind) - When installing mods pay attention that files do not coexists in upper/ lowercase! This causes Morrowind to crash. Morrowind Graphics Extender how to: - 64bit OS users have to use 32bit wineprefix (WINEARCH='win32')! - Start with a clean 32 bit wineprefix. - Use winetricks and install d3dx9_36 and dotnet20 (don't install directx9!). - Open winecfg and set d3d9.all and dinput8.dll to "(Native, Builtin)". - Use a MGE version patched for wine (details in this thread:

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 !
