OpenMW is an unofficial open source engine reimplementation of the game Morrowind.

readme.txt
OpenMW: A reimplementation of The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind

OpenMW is an attempt at recreating the engine for the popular role-playing game
Morrowind by Bethesda Softworks. You need to own and install the original game for OpenMW to work.

Version: 0.29.0
License: GPL (see GPL3.txt for more information)
Website: http://www.openmw.org

Font Licenses:
DejaVuLGCSansMono.ttf: custom (see DejaVu Font License.txt for more information)



INSTALLATION

Windows:
Run the installer.

Linux:
Ubuntu (and most others)
Download the .deb file and install it in the usual way.

Arch Linux
There's an OpenMW package available in the [community] Repository:
https://www.archlinux.org/packages/?sort=&q=openmw

OS X:
Open DMG file, copy OpenMW folder anywhere, for example in /Applications

BUILD FROM SOURCE

https://wiki.openmw.org/index.php?title=Development_Environment_Setup


THE DATA PATH

The data path tells OpenMW where to find your Morrowind files. If you run the launcher, OpenMW should be able to
pick up the location of these files on its own, if both Morrowind and OpenMW are installed properly
(installing Morrowind under WINE is considered a proper install).
