Have any of you seen the skyrim gamer poops?
I'm going to install that massive HD patch for Morrowind and give it one last spin. I got the game when it came out around ten years ago. At the time it was mind blowing. The HD patch makes it look like Oblivion or Skyrim. It's going to be a pretty cool re-visit.
I have the vanilla game, along with the expansion packs,(which you need) installed on my Windows 7 machine and it's running smooth. Tonight I install the patch.
The vanilla game hasn't aged well in the graphics department. I fooled around with it for a little bit after the install. Still just as fun as I remembered though.
The Elder Scrolls series is a PERFECT example of that. Skyrim came out in 2008. I've got mine modded so as to look as though it came out yesterday. I'm sure the Morrowwind HD mod will do much the same thing. I'm curious to know how that game plays and looks compared to a more recent title. Because as you said.. the game is pretty ugly by todays standards. Keep us informed!
Just finished the mod an hour ago. I maxed out all the settings. It looks as good as Oblivion or Skyrim, if not better but the laptop I tried it on isn't a gaming laptop and the frame rate is 20FPS outside, 30-60FPS inside. Not good. I'll be doing an update to my settings now to fine tune it into a solid 30-60FPS.
This mod adds other features as well, such a more NPC, upgraded sounds, a nude mod, you know, all the staples.
While I'm at this I may go see if there is any HD mods for Diablo II.
I just got the Legendary edition of skyrim last week and it looks pretty dope with the high res texture packs, plus it also comes with all the DLC's
Anyone picking up Splinter Cell: Blacklist?
I bought Skyrim Legendary Ed. for PS3. I bought Skyrim when it came out for 360 but then later sold my 360 and games. I wasn't playing this when it dropped for PS3 but I read all the horror stories about the frame rate and glitches. I've logged about five hours on Skyrim Legendary Ed. (PS3) now and I think it's better looking than the 360 version and I am experiencing no performance issues. Zip, zero, zlitch. So it looks like they fixed it all. Legendary comes with all the DLC and Walmart has it on for $20 cheaper than anywhere else(around $40 vs. $60 elsewhere). It seemed like a good deal to me considering that the regular version is still $30 most places and EB had a Legendary used copy going for $55(shakes head).
Loving this game again, and this time around I'm going to finish it. I created a Imperial warrior and I've decided to use a short sword, shield combo with a bow for ranged attacks. Like last time I'm going to focus on smithing and enchanting trades because it seems like a logical setup; soul trapping while hunting for leather and then enchanting with the filled soul gems.
I thought about being a mage but I really like sword play and so maybe some other time.
I'm currently in Riverun, just cleared Barrow Falls and am rocking some custom made fine leather armor and a custom fine steel short sword. Next stop Whiterun.
I should have took screens before I starting messing with it again so instead, check out this article: http://kotaku.com/5947989/morrowind-...hical-overhaul
Messing around with Morrowind again got me craving some console Elder's Scrolls. That led me to picking up Skyrim again. I prefer the console controls more than the mouse and keyboard; I finished Morrowind originally on an original Xbox and Oblivion on a 360. I probably still have Morrowind gathering dust in my basement next to my original Xbox...
Apparently Fallout 4 is also in Development ... now THAT I can't wait for.
I like fallout cuz i can play in god mode, with the best weapon. I likey cheating, because I am no good at vid games
