Description

As seen in this image - https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/260443579908882434/419604877929349121/unknown.png

The directory automatically provided ends with /Morrowind. But it really needs to lead to Data files for OpenMW to correctly find Morrowind.esm and its associated files that are required for running the game. Even if the installation wizard correctly guesses where your Morrowind folder might be in, it won't work because of the wrong directory.

History

#1 Updated by Alexei Dobrohotov 30 days ago

  • Subject changed from Launcher installation wizard provides wrong automatic directory to Wizard: Incorrect Morrowind assets path autodetection
  • Category changed from Launcher to Tools
  • Status changed from New to Confirmed
  • Operating system changed from Windows to Other

As seen here, Wizard naively takes the path from Windows/Wine registry, but it doesn't account for how it's merely an installation path that should only be used for importing Morrowind.ini.

Oops, wrong line, it's actually used properly there. Here's the actual incorrect line, which inserts the "raw" installation path.

I'll try to fix it and the following lines.

#3 Updated by Alexei Dobrohotov 30 days ago

Disregard my previous message, mostly - addInstallation is fine, the MainWizard portion is odd. I should get some sleep.
