Getting to Morrowind

I assume that you've already got Morrowind (and its expansions) and Oblivion (patched to 1.2), and downloaded Morroblivion. Okay, your first step is to extract the Morroblivion files. You need 7-zip or some other similar file extractor to do it. Just extract them to a folder on your desktop, or whereever. Next, once everything's extracted, navigate to that folder and inside will be a file called Morroblivion.ini. Open that up with a text editor, and we're going to change a couple things. The original should look like this:

; Initialisation file containing Path and Files to use ; with Morroblivion ESP Converter and NIF Converter ; lines to be ignored begin with ";", to uncomment a line ; just remove the ";" ; Morrowind and Oblivion paths, don't forget to change them ; if you did not install the 2 games in the default folders Morrowind=C:\Program Files\Bethesda Softworks\Morrowind\ Oblivion=C:\Program Files\Bethesda Softworks\Oblivion\ ; Master files to convert with ESP Converter, ; ignored by NIF Converter Master 0=Morrowind.esm Master 1=Tribunal.esm Master 2=Bloodmoon.esm Master 3=PNOG.esm ;Master 4= ;Master 5= ;Master 6= ; Archive files to use for conversion, ; used by both ESP Converter and NIF Converter Archive 0=Morrowind.bsa Archive 1=Tribunal.bsa Archive 2=Bloodmoon.bsa Archive 3=PNOG.bsa ;Archive 4= ;Archive 5= ;Archive 6= ; Mod files to merge with during ESP/ESM conversion, ; ignored by NIF Converter Mod 0=Better Clothes_v1.0.esp Mod 1=CanadianIce Robe Replacer.esp Mod 2=Armures de femmes.esp ;Mod 3= ;Mod 4= ;Mod 5= ;Mod 6= ;Mod 7= ;Mod 8= ;Mod 9=

What you want to do next is place a semicolon ( ; ) in front of anything you don't want to convert. For instance, if you don't own Tribunal or Bloodmoon, you'd place a ; in front of the master and archive lines of those expansions. If you own both, just leave them as they are. Place a ; in front of the lines containing PNOG, unless you're French, because those lines have to do with the French version of the game. Also, near the bottom of the file you'll see some stuff like Mod 0=. Place a ; in front of those if you don't have those Morrowind mods, or just don't want to convert them. Once you're done editing the file, save and close it, and return to the folder. Now, there will be a file called ESP_conv. Double click that to start the conversion process. It will take a while to convert them, so sit back or go do something else for a bit. It'll let you know when it's done. When it's finished, exit out and open up Oblivion. Click Data Files at the launch screen, and enable Morrowind_ob.esm. Currently, you don't really need to enable Tribunal_ob.esm and Bloodmoon_ob.esm. Also! look into downloading the CNME mod. This mod will place a ship in the Anvil docks that takes you to Seyda Neen. That's all, enjoy! Read the attached ReadMe for further details and information. I just translated it from French with Google Translate, so the English might be a bit off. But I don't speak French, so it'll have to do. :)

well for xp you gotta be administrator from what i know... and you may need to reinstall the bloodmoon and tribunal packs again then morrowind... if its goty morrowind just reinstall morrowind, tribunal, then bloodmoon(in that order of course). or... you may have downloaded a corrupt version of the mod with a failing converter in which case redownload the mod. if this does not work im sorry :(

Works for me
I downloaded it, installed it into a folder on the desktop, made the instructed edit to the .ini and then ran the program. It worked fine. First test I had no landmass, just water, then I re-read the readme again and set the load order properly. It works awesomely. Everything is there all right. This program is so full of awesome it makes me weep. It's cool to wander Morrowind, it's a seamless integration as far as I'm concerned. It's like Oblivion just got a LOT bigger.

ESP_conv crashes
The ESP_ conv file crashes in the middle of conversion. Here is the latest message displayed in the terminal before it crashes: Welcome to NIF converter v1.08 creating G:\Program Files\Bethesda Softworks\Oblivion\Data\Meshes\morro\d Converting d\Ex_Redoran_barracks_01_a.nif to G:\Program Files\Bethesda Softworks \Oblivion\Data\Meshes\morro\d\ExURedoranUbarracksU01Ua.nif Does anyone know what the problem is? (In case there's any confusion, typing G:\ is not an error. My G: drive is most people's C: drive. Long story.)

I had the same problem as above. Everything was identical, about the wolf skin and too many keys. I moved the folder containing the converter package into the root of C: (previously on the desktop), ran it again. Seemed to work fine. Another thing of note is that the first time (when it crashed), I ran in fullscreen (because I thought it looked wierd lol). I'm not sure what information you're looking for. The version I'm using is ESPConverter_v0_98b, the ESP_conv.exe application is the one that crashed.

What I meant about the
What I meant about the window was when I was running the converter (when it crashed), I pressed Alt+Enter to make the console run in full screen. I'm not sure if that had any effect at all though, just something I thought I might mention. A window is too small for Oblivion though, gotta play full :D. I got it to work in the end though. Pretty nice integration! Too bad the quests don't work...but WOW! Oblivion is twice as big now :P. Cheers.

Morroblivion help...please
First of all I would like to ask where do I extract the converter files to? My main question is that I have changed morroblivion.ini to the specifications, but when I click on esp_conv.exe and the black box comes up it tells me this: Welcome in Morrowing to Oblivion mod translator v0.98 Parsing Morrowing.esm Parsing Tribunal.esm Parsing Bloodmoon.esm Can't create c:\ProgramFiles\BethesdaSoftware\Oblivion\Data\Morrowind_ob.cnv Please press enter... I am really interest in playing this and I would appretiate some help. Is there any fix for this? John K.

Quests
How Would One Go About Getting Quests To Work From Morrowind In Oblivion? Are People Trying To Do This As We Speak, Or Is It Something We Have To Attempt? Is It Even Possible, I wanted to know this and also to see if i can use mods such as the underground, underground 2, wizards island and a few others in oblivion, i havent tried these yet, i am just about to try using morrowind In oblivion, exciting! id just love to see such an intergration that morrowind is playable in full, with everything from the old game :)

O NOES
Ok, i can get to morrowind HOORAY!!!!!! But downside is a few things, some guards and ppl have no arms, the soldier who is supposed to give you "duties" and the package for caius (i am using the morrowind main quest mod) has no armour and is naked, and doesnt give me the box :\ apart from that wow the place looks awesome, is it something to do with my morrowind files? should i do a clean install and redo the esp converter? because i have tons of texture mods installed for morrowind currently, so i thought maybe they conflict with it! well cheers for any feedback, i must sleep now or i will be tooo tired to get up for work !

People who are having the problem with the files not being found who are using Vista 64-bit: on the .ini, be sure to change the file paths for Oblivion and Morrowind to C:\Program Files (x86)\Bethesda Softworks\Oblivion and Morrowind to C:\Program Files (x86)\Bethesda Softworks\Morrowind. Also note that there is a space in between "Program Files" and "(x86)".

1. Did you make sure you
1. Did you make sure you installed the mods into the correct directory? It should be C://ProgramFiles/Bethesda Softworks/Oblivion/Data, or something similar. 2. Were there any errors while running the Converter? Also, I'm not quite sure what you mean... Morrowind_ob, Tribunal_ob and Bloodmoon_ob should be the only three esm mods that show up to be able to run Morroblivion... so maybe make sure that Morrowind_ob is set to load directly after Oblivion.esm. There should be no mods between them, and if there is it will cause Morroblivion not to work properly.

Well, Oblivion.esm should
Well, Oblivion.esm should always load first, as it is the ultimate master, but to play Morroblivion you have to put Morrowind_ob.esm, Tribunal_ob.esm and Bloodmoon_ob.esm right after Oblivion.esm.

Can someone upload an archived version of properly converted Morroblivion? From the experience of racing games I can say that conversions are a real headache for a normal user and it is far too tricky to do everything properly. I am working on trying to get Morrowblivion working and it's the fourth time I am converting things now... still nothing works. Now surely a properly converted and archived file would be much, much easier to install and play. :-/

Besides, the problem here is
Besides, the problem here is not the ESP Converter, actually the problem is the Installer. If somebody wants to make something useful with this "mod" well my sugestion is to make a decent Installer for Morroblivion. for example :Open the .exe, browse the location of Morrowind and Oblivon next Selec the extra esp you wish to convert, and finally hit convert. Easy! I have no idea how to do it, but that shoud be awesome, its also necesary to have the source code, in order to create an Install Wizard .exe? This is the only "worth" improvement we should have in a next version of the ESP Converter. Seeya ;D
