    I am a complete newbie to running Windows games on a Mac. I have a mid-2009 15" Macbook Pro, 2.53ghz with 8mb RAM with Invidia GeForce 9400m 256mb.

    I do not own a copy of Windows to install, and I don't want to install Windows.

    Is there some port, or some way I can run my Windows copies of Morrowind and Oblivion on this Mac? (I got them back when I had a Windows laptop for a while) I don't even know where to begin, so any really basic help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    yes... there are wrappers you can use to make them work like Mac apps... go check out the forums at portingteam.com where hobby porters share their wrappers. I've run Morrowind and Oblivion both... they both run with Wineskin ports, but I believe last I tried Oblivion ran at a higher frame rate in the Cider hacked versions.

    You'll have to run really low res and details on Oblivion with a 9400m, but it *should* work.

    1. Necro of a six year old thread.
    2. The "Morrowind" you tried to link to is an upcoming expansion of Elder Scrolls Online. The original Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind is not available for Mac.

    Yes, I realise that. Folks wanted to know if Morrowind could be played on a Mac.

    It should be obvious they meant Elder Scrolls III with that.

    I think you were referring to this:
    "The Elder Scrolls: Legends is a collectible card video game developed by Dire Wolf Digital and published by Bethesda Softworks for Microsoft Windows and iOS in March 2017. Releases for Android and macOS are due later in 2017."

    Bethesda.net is not the right website, its spamming job? They are collecting names and email addresses if you sign in there?

    Paulk, dude, it would have been a lot less embarrassing for you if you just said "oops, my mistake" instead of digging in deeper. By way of analogy, if someone asks about running Warcraft III on a modern Mac, I hope you wouldn't think it was appropriate to direct them to World of Warcraft. Also, there's nothing wrong with the link Janichsan posted. It has one of those silly "age gates" but there's no collection of information.

    Its OK, this is the first time I've come across one website impersonating another. Really weird. Lesson learned, I will be a lot more careful in future.

    There isn't any website referenced in this topic that's "impersonating another". You're either extremely confused, or trolling.
