    I couldn't kill Vivec, he was too awesome :P, but as soon as I was done with the tribunal quest line Helseth's reign would end surprisingly quickly lol, I originally played the console version, and I valued his ring much more than I did keeping him around ;P. If you played a class with a mana multiplier and enchanted items like the tower shield with 1-87 or 89 intelligence(can't remember) you could get your mana pretty high without technically exploiting anything :). Although you would have to take it on and off untill you got the desired value.
    I'm not sure if it ever got officially patched but you could permanently increase any of your stats by combining soul trap on target and any other fortify spell then casting it at the ground ;P. I remember using it with summons more than anything because it would create permanent summoned creatures, allowing armies of dremora/golden saints/etc and sending about 40 of them to take on Alemalexia's hands rofl.

    Can you give details as to what you are running? (i.e. atmosphere version, etc.)

    Did anyone get any texture mods for the ground to work? For some reason for me I still get the default blurry textures

    Yes tons of them from Morrowind graphics overhaul, data folder is now 8gb.. The only problem is it take 22-23 mins to start the game lol. This is on a fast samsung sd card.

    Interesting, which mods of those you have tried do you recommend? Mostly graphical I see. I remember a few ones, like Balmoral university or blacksmith. Very good ones.

    If you want the best graphics mod its a bit tricky. Since you have to download Morrowind Graphics overhaul.
    1.Install it on pc.

    2.Goto the texture and meshes folder (start by copying any files starting with "TX_" in the texture folder mainly because some files are really large avoid anything above 1000kb)

    3.Copy the texture folder content and meshes to your switch openmw/data and replace the ones present there

    Essential mods:

    quickloot (not installed it yet but it makes looting so much easier and fast no need to open stuff)

    Better Balanced Combat (excellent mod since it makes every hit count no more misses and is very well balance for npcs)

    While you cant make it look amazing as in the pc with shaders it looks quiet good.

    I think the best graphics package currently is
    https://wiki.nexusmods.com/index.php/Morrowind_graphics_guide
    It replaces S.T.E.P

    From what I gather it looks better than MGSO, but how good an FPS you will get and how long loading times will take might be a worry lol:P.

    Exactly, is better not to overwhelm the same, for fps and stability

    The save menu only becomes available after you do the character creation thing.

    Playing it for a bit now.
    Can I open the Switch Keyboard somehow?
    It worked for naming my character, but now, when I want to craft weapons or magic, I can't give them a name.
    Not being able to name them => Can't craft them

    Check your settings.cfg under [GUI] to make sure theres no crazy font sizing, or UI scaling. Also, if anyone is playing on a TV i find that 1.7 UI scaling with 36 point font works great in 1080 mode.

    Minus button brings it up only when the input field is selected. I. e. you have to click it first. Input boxes like name entry autofocus on the field on creation, which is why it worked.
