    Will Morrowind run on max settings on a UMBP with the 9400m? What about with the custome texture and draw distance packs? What fps could I expect to get? Thanks.

    Last I checked you couldn't run this natively in OSX...

    Do you plan to use a full windows install on its own partition or use a virtualization of it via Parallels or similar?

    Morrowind struggles to run under Parallels on my 2.66ghz iMac, so I'd imagine you would have to use Windows natively. It's not a particularly intensive game by today's standards, so I'd just put the game's settings to max and then play around with Morrowind Graphics Extender or similar until you find something you like.

    I'm going to be running it on bootcamp. We'll see how it goes with the graphics extender. Thanks!

    Ya if you run it with bootcamp it'll run no problem at all.

    Good to hear :D

    I'm really looking forward to playing it again, as I never finished it.
