Dialog Text Duration

Hi all,

could anybody help me: the dialog texts disappear too fast, so that I cannot read them.

Is there a setting point in any .ini file, to show the texts for a longer time? I'm playing the German Version and the German texts are longer than the English texts.

Thanks for help an Morroblivion is a great work by a very ingenious "Mannschaft".

Dialog Text duration is

Dialog Text duration is actually controlled by the duration of the voice file.  When there is no recorded voice file (like in the base Morroblivion mod) then Oblivion will skip the dialog after less than 1 second.  So if the dialog text is only being shown for less than 1 second, then you probably need to correctly install Elys Universal Silent Voice (Elys_USV.dll) or the Voicefile Redirector:

If you have already correctly installed Elys USV or Voicefile Redirector, then dialog without recorded audio should last 8 seconds.  If it is not lasting 8 seconds, then you have incorrectly installed the USV plugin.  Check to make sure that Elys_USV.dll, Elys_USV.lip and Elys_USV.mp3 are all located in \Oblivion\Data\OBSE\Plugins\.

If 8 seconds is still too short for you, then you can extend the duration by replacing the default silent voice file at "\Oblivion\Data\OBSE\Plugins\Elys_USV.mp3" with your own recording of silence (the MP3 encoding must be mono-channel with 64kbps constant bitrate).

An additional option that is very helpful is to install the Protocolled Dialog mod, which will display all text for the current conversation in a side window.  This can be used at the same time as the USV plugin:

Hi,

Hi,

it worked fine (the Elys-files) it seems I had them forgotten to install to a fresh Oblivion folder. Could you help with another problem: if I want to refresh an enchanted weapon, e.g. Umbras Sword in a Mages Guild, e.g. Folms Mirel in Caldera and I choose the weapon in the enchantment window, there comes the noise correctly but when I finish the game crashes to desktop. Maybe there is missing any additional file?

Hi ponyrider0,

Hi ponyrider0,

for my additional CTD problems I have found a very stable solution. A clean fresh Oblivion installatin with all wanted Oblivion mods ant patches made with "OBMM" only, then a copy-installation of morroblivion files, then sorted by "LOOT". The result is a famous new and stable Morrowind adventure. The use of wrye bash seems to be critical, there is a new beta that severely crashed on my wifes PC. I think you could take this as an additional proposal for the community to reach a stable Morrowind by the Oblivion machine.

Thanks for your help
