What works

The game itself, and playing it.

What does not

Landscape ground textures are heavily glitched on Nvidia cards and cause trailing effects. The game is still playable, but that glitch is very distracting and annoying.

Additional Comments

The framerate is very bad.

I tested it on a desktop with a GTX 1080 with every setting at maximum, and it always stayed below 60 FPS even in building interiors.

On Windows, even in intensive fighting and places with lots of people it stays at 60, and very rarely drops below.

Considering how powerful that GPU is and the fact that this game isn't resource-demanding at all, the fact that it often stays at around 35FPS is very concerning.


- Windows version MUST be set to a recent Windows version (my latest sucessful attempt was with Windows 10 set in winecfg)

- I tested this on a 64bit prefix. For some people, replacing eso64.exe with eso.exe might help, although I didn't have to do that in my latest tests.

HowTo / Notes

Fix for the game not starting when clicking

This a temporary fix for when the game isn't starting when hitting the "Play" button in the launcher. It works simply by replacing the 64bit executable with the 32bit one, essentially forcing the game to run in 32bit mode. It works on either 32/64bit prefixes.

  1. Go to [steam_directory]/steamapps/common/Zenimax Online/The Elder Scrolls Online/game/client
  2. Rename eso64.exe to eso64.exe.bak
  3. Make a copy of eso.exe and name it eso64.exe

Important note: Remember that ESO will drop 32bit support in 2018
