Default Morrowind performance issues on a modern PC

August 29th, 2010, 18:18
I'm kinda scratching my head on this one, and need any advice that I can get. I have a modern win7 x64 pc loaded to the gills w/ RAM, and a crazy video card that chews up and spits everything out no problem. Yet Morrowind tends to run kinda slow in cities. It's playable, dont get me wrong, but it's frustrating to see my framerate drop to 15-25 fps and the game run kinda sludgy in a piddly city like Ebonheart, for instance.

Ive scoured the net, tweaked the .ini file, run the FPS optimizer -what gives??

I know it's an old program on a new system. It's a common thing to be disappointed when installing an oldie and expecting to play it cranked to the max, just to find that it was poor programming as much as a weak pc that made it run like shit back in 2004. But I find it hard to believe that with all the MW disciples still playing this game to this day, that there's no fix. There has to be a tweak, a patch, something that I'm missing here.

Someone please tell me they have the Morrowind silver bullet for all-round awesome performance…
