    It goes up to the menu and constantly crashes or freezes on sx os. Lauched it from HB menu. Mot sure what I should do. I removed the openmw config ini. Im using the GoG verison goty edition.

    I don't know if SX OS has its own hbmenu or what, but you need regular app memory for this to work. So NSP hbmenu or Atmosphere + game override.

    Just hold R while launching any title to get full memory access homebrew menu with SXOS like all the other firmwares.

    You can't install the NRO onto NAND instead of the SD card?

    Max viewing distance and anisotropic filtering 1 (visually more pleasing than 2-4 imho) come at no performance cost - you should set those in the graphics options in game.

    Also activated preloading (simply switching from false to true in default settings) and tested the games performance in Solstheim (large open area), game performed decently. Performance loss was negligible. So this is recommended as well. Imho.

    Boot up time for me is 3min 30sec on a black screen, so whatever can be done to minimize that - if at all... is my top priority feedback. The rest of the port already is great as is - so this becomes the most pressing 'issue'. :) (Could you have an option to disable the data file check? That has to be enabled manually so people would know what they are doing?)

    Will also post another video about level of detail in MW - simply to show people whats missing in current Elderscrolls games. :)

    Yeah, can't really do anything about load speeds right now. Not sure that view distance comes at no performance cost, it does affect perf for me. Otherwise thanks for the advice. Could you post your settings.cfg?

    Used the default settings-default.cfg that comes with the release, and literally just changed preload from false to true. Only tested one area so far and one thats rather sparse and open - there is a tradeoff in, that there will be loading slowdowns once in a while - but in my case they arent terrible. And especially at high movement speeds it saves you many of the "loading area" screens - that effect the flow of the game a little more.

    So dont distrubute it as default - but, its definitely something that people should look at to see what they prefer.

    Loading distance max (just move the slider to the right.. ;) ) and anisotropic filtering 1 for me come at no cost - so I'd recommend people using them.

    In the following video you see all of them in action.

    Preloading is only active in the last third (starting from the scene, where I talk to the Fryse Witch (the lady you see in the thumbnail - also her attack script failed.. ;) (Again - thats probably the Xbox savegame I'm using.)) and then do a few full speed run tests) - but max viewing distance and anisotropic filtering 1 are active throughout the video.

    I'm also using CPU overclock to 1.2 and GPU overclock to 480 in handheld (sys-clk module) so near stock switch performance - but still a little more beefy. :) Bear this in mind as well please. :)

    And now - what I mean by Elderscrolls never reached that detail level again after Morrowind - captured in a video.

    The video is representative of a 20 minutes loop within the game - so all the things you get presented with in an almost 'typical' 20 minutes play session.

    Have fun. :)

    Oh I have been doing that.

    Black screen even after 9 mins.

    fatal.log
    FATAL ERROR:
    Could not find `./config/openmw.cfg` or `./data/Morrowind.ini`.
    Either manually place your data files into `./data` and your `openmw.cfg` into `./config`,
    or copy the `Data Files` directory and `Morrowind.ini` from your TES3 installation
    into `./data`.

    And Ive checked and those files are in the right places.

    Did you place both morrowind.ini and openmw.cfg? If you have both, remove one of them.

    That might have been fatal.log from an old crash. Check also config/openmw.log.

    You probably have a slow sd card. Mine literally takes more than 15 minutes to load it's terrible but whatever.

    That's pretty horrifying. Do you have similar issues playing regular games if you have them installed on your SD?

    Do you know what the cause of the slow loading is?

    @burial Well, it could be a fake one.
    I have no idea what could be causing slow loading other than the speed of the SD card. Because for me and some other people under seemingly the same conditions it works fine.
    I have been testing this on latest Atmosphere on FW5.1.0 with no extra sysmodules or other modifications, NSP hbmenu. My SD card is a 64GB Kingston SDXC Class 10 UHS-I and it is formatted in FAT32.
