Default The Unofficial Morrowind Patch (UMP) by Thepal

September 18th, 2008, 14:27
Was installing one of my all-time favourites, Morrowind, on my laptop and I came across this thing on the net:
http://www.etherealsoftware.com.au/patch/

"The Unofficial Morrowind Patch (UMP) fixes almost all of the bugs and problems with Morrowind and its expansions. While the official patches by Bethesda only fixed a couple of dozen bugs, this patch fixes several hundred. The goal of this patch is to make the game completely bug-free (within the abilities of the TESCS)."

I normally wouldn't touch anything unofficial, but I sometimes make an exception when we're talking strictly bug-fix. Anyone has any experience with this thing?
Here's what it claims to be about:

Fix any bugs in the quests that make them incompletable or skip you ahead.
Correct spelling & grammar mistakes in the dialogue and object names, and give them a uniform appearance.
Make global scripts end when they are no longer needed.
Make quests be marked as Finished so they no longer appear in the Active Quest list when they should be.
Correct any mesh or texture problems in the objects.
Correct incorrect subtitles
Add any objects that were not included in the ESM files, but were included on the game CDs
Fixes many other bugs and problems with the game


Sounds good to me. What do you think?


That is not dead which can eternal lie,
And with strange aeons even death may die.
