-Ubuntu 11.10 (Oneiric Ocelot)
-Wine 1.3.28
-Gnome (Unity) desktop
-Morrowind: Game of the Year Edition (The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind, Tribunal and Bloodmoon. The Construction Set).

All three CDs (Morrowind, Tribunal and Bloodmoon) installed fine to the Virtual Drive with no problems.

I have two Virtual Drives:
-TES3_Morrowind          <---- Selected
-ElderScrolls3_Morrowind
When I try to change to the second, ElderScrolls3_Morrowind, a warning states that I am likely to break it...

When I try to play:
I start the game either by Double clicking the games Desktop icon or from within PlayOnLinux by selecting game and click RUN.

Then the game menu opens (Play, Data Files, Exit). I click play then...
error: °_°

What would I need to do at this point? :)

I have the same problem. Got a no-cd patch. How do I install it in PlayOnLinux?

No-CD patch are not supported here. Anyone who gives instructions about it will be banned.

Have the same problem here, and have an original CD :-)

First time using play on linux, so not sure if the error is a show stopper or not.

Any chance of some advice on this please?

You need to install a no-cd patch, but it's not supported here

Look, I know I probably shouldn't argue with an Admin, but...

If one has legally purchased a copy of their game, it's entirely legal to use a no-CD/DVD crack to run the game. There's no law against it, in fact the supreme court ruled we could.

So, now I came here for this exact issue, after installing the no-CD crack for my legally purchased morrowind copy, and you tell me that because you're scared of something you shouldn't be scared of, I can't use my legally purchased software in the way I want to use it. So we're defeating the entire concept and idea behind using linux in the first place. GOOD. JOB.

No, it is because by buying a copy of game you have accepted license which reads that no code manipulation is allowed. No-cd is code manipulation, so why would you want to break the terms of use by using it? You known what you buy and that anyone asked in public if you can violate the agreement you made, will say that he/she doesn't support such a behaviour.

No code manipulation... really? Because... ya know... there's these things, called Modifications. There's websites dedicated to them. Specifically for Morrowind, in fact, and every other TES game since. I'm pretty sure Bethesda would have politely asked that these not exist a long time ago if they didn't want you to manipulate their code. But, instead, they included the tool they used to make the game, with the game. Specifically so we could manipulate the code.

If this were, say, Diablo II, or Warcraft 3, I'd have kinda nodded and gone, "Yeah, that probably is in the ToS/EULA." But, not with a Bethesda game. No, they actually provide you tools to go and do this, and encourage you.

At that point I don't expect anything worth reading to come out of this thread.
