Does anyone have this mod working? I just got the NTSC version of Morrowind GOTY and I've hex edited the one file to eliminate the stupid intro videos and I've hex edited the other file to allow me to use mods... I've been trying mods all night and I've gotten everything but one mod to work.

Here's the mods I'm running with:

20 Books
Better Bodies
Better Heads
Bottle (The house-in-bottle mod)
Ninja Outfits
Repeater Crossbow
At Home Alchemy

I don't know if all of these work or if they just fail to crash my game, but I do know that the Better Bodies/Better Heads work.

However, I really want to get Morrowind Crafting 2.0. For those who don't know the mod, it sets up a crafting system heavily based on resource collection and skill interaction. It seems rather neat, but I can't get it to work. After removing the dependencies from the mod like I did for some of the other mods (the ones I didn't get from a ready-for-xbox mod list) I put everything into my Data Files folder in my xbox... If I load my test save game I was using to test my mods it seems to work, however when I tried to create a new game I get that speech from the guy in the boat and then when the guard comes the game crashes (No dirty disc error message, just a blank black screen) somewhere around where I climb the first set of stairs. After removing the Morrowind Craftings 2.0 mod files I am fully capable of getting past this point.

Is it that I'm running out of RAM on the xbox because the mod is too big? If this is the case, is there any way I could shrink this mod down so it would work? Also, if it turns out impossible, are there any other mods that give similar functionality to that of the Morrowind Crafting 2.0 mod?

Just so I'm not being a beggar of help without giving anything in return:

I've been through nearly every topic in this forum and I've noticed that there were a fair amount of newbies who didn't know how to mod an xbox. Here's the softmod tutorial I wrote: softmodtutorial.blogspot.com

This tutorial uses -slightly- old techniques and software, but it has no problems, is extremely easy, and the software to do it is very easy to get for a newbie. I have two xboxes modded using that method and I've modden a dozen others for friends. Also, the tutorial goes through the process of upgrading the hard drive in a softmodded xbox (it's not as hard as some people think) and dispells some half-truths and myths about the softmodding process.

This is my first post to this forum and I hope I didn't do anything wrong in it. If I have, please contact me or reply to this thread and I'll make whatever changes I can.

Have a great day!

you could always try removing all mods (and after cleaning your cache) try putting on the morrowind crafting 2.0 mod and seeing if it'll run by itself.

if it does then add one mod and test, then another and test, then another and test and so on, this way you can see if two mods clash with each other

or if it only crashes when you start a new game, create a new game without the mod installed, save at your first possible chance, install the mod, load your save game and enjoy

i'm a newbie aswell but these are the things that i would try

good luck

one thing i know is that the bottle mod broke quests on mine and the guards wouldnt try and collect your bounty if you had one, they'd just come up to you and open a regular dialog and then immediately attack you once you close it. try removing that then putting in the crafting and see what happens.

Well it seems that Morrowwind crafting 2.0 does indeed work....testing as i type..no probs yet:crashing, freezes,or distorted graphics,or slow down.and can use all skills so far...lets keep our fingers crossed.this is a fairly big mod to test so it will problaly take me awhile to fully test it..oh just realized that my recomendation of the similar mod: complete morrowind full, hit a major snag: cant use the woodworking feature, but if you don't mind that feel free to do so. but so far Morrowwind crafting 2.0 seems to be 100% xbox compatabile.hope thats good news to someone.will keep updating my test results if anybody cares also

oh and the jounal is keeping track of the info on the mod skills without glitching.and the menus all show the correct xbox buttons for the skills biggrin.gif
