View Full Version : Ubuntu / Cedega / Morrowind slow

February 2nd, 2005, 05:06 PM
hi all.

I try to play 'The Elder Scrolls 3: Morrowind' on my Ubuntu PC via Cedega.


IBM Thinkpad R40, Centrino 1,4GHz, 512MByte, ATI Radeon 7500 Mobility
Cedega 4.1.1 i386
Ubuntu Warty
Morrowind with all expansions and patches.

Morrowind ran very good on the same machine using Windows 2000 but under Ubuntu/Cedega it is unplayable slow. even with graphics settings set to an ugly minimum I cannot play this anymore. sad, because it still seems stable, sound plays, installation was easy and all - but who cares if you cannot play...

other RPGs I play regularly like Neverwinter NIghts, Diablo 2, Icewind Dale 2 or Divine Divinity run fine and fast.

is there any chance that performance will increase significantly with Hoary (better ATI drivers) or Cedega 4.2?

does anybody know some 'secret trick' to optimize for this game?

thanks and regards,

I havn't ran Morrowind in ubuntu, but I know for sure that Morrowind is a resourcing eating hog. Morrowind relies more on CPU and ram, than Graphic cards.
So you might close down some apps.

thats a problem for me too, although i'm using wine. I have a 1gb ram, so thats not a problem so i'm wondering why is it so slow.
