Tell you what.. you send me a copy of the game, I'll try the tweaks and tell you how they go. Deal? :D

Even if you don't play Morrowind, read Section 3 (Pages 7 - 11) for general Windows tweaks which should apply to all games. There might be something there you may have missed :)

I've read the whole thing.. I even fixed a couple errors in it.. :D

Anyway I thought the guide was quite informative... Everyone elses opinion?

sounds like a buggy game to begin with, but looks like this would help a lot.

This guide kicks ass. I just wish it had a "printable copy" button, where its just one big thing, so i wouldnt have to print all the pages seperatly.:( oh well.

I found the guide pretty good, but it's missing a mention of the nifty little tool "FPS optimizer". You surely must have heard of it? There are various threads on several boards about it, like on the official Morrowind forums or the plugin-forum at RPGdot.
This tool is essential!

Yes I've heard of it. Not a big fan of it really. All it does is remove effects to maintain a steady fps. It doesn't "optimise" anything at all, it's a "frame rate maintainer"

I wanted to show how people can play Morrowind in all its glory with a few free and simple tweaks. Otherwise if you drop it to 640x480, 0% view distance, everything else at 0% you'll get decent framerates too, but it defeats the atmosphere of the game :)

Help!! I just tried some of the tweaks suggested in the Morrowind Tweak Guide, and now when I click Play from the launcher I get an error message saying
Render Creation Error: "Creation failed: Could not match desired fullscreen mode".

Has anyone had this problem, or know how to fix it?:confused:

HAve you changed the resolution you want the game to run at? If your settings and resolution are too high, it's likely you'll get that error. Also more details about your PC and which graphics drivers you're using would help too.

Thank you PersianImmortal!!!!

I had not changed the resolution myself but from the options setting in the launcher I found it had been set to 640x400 when it had previously been set at the 900xXXX setting (I forget exactly what it was). Changing the res to 1024x768 got the game running again!!! (The 900 setting no longer is available)

I tried changing the video card settings and the Morrowind.ini file and got a small increase in performance. I don't think there is a lot that can be done on my machine without upgrading the hardware. I've got a Pentium III, 96 MB RAM (no laughing!) and a Geforce2 MX 400.

One more thing, in the NVMax overclocking guide you mentioned clicking the icon that looks like a cog. I don't see any cogs when running NVMax. The clock setting in the system drop down menu sets both the sliders to about 2x the card's default setting but won't let me keep any changes.

Again, thank you PersianImmortal:thumb:

Is it possible to download the tweak guide, that way I will have it to hand when i re-install Morrowind, I dont have a printer atm, that has to wait until I have my new PC built.
