    I want to buy the digital download version of Oblivion, I know Direct 2 Drive.co.uk sells it with the Shivering Isles pack, but I also want the Knights of the Nine pack to, but you can only buy this from Direct 2 Drives american site, does anyone know if it will work or if they will let you download it for the UK, or if the disc version of KotN will work with the downloaded version of Oblivion (I doubt it will).

    Or can will you be able to download KotN and all of the downloadable content from Bethesda (you can if you have bought the disc version or Oblivion) and will they work with the Digital Downloaded version of Oblivion.

    Any help would be great, thanks...

    I think you should be ok with the getting knights of the nine direct from bethesda, however this pack or any of the oblivion DLC will not work on vista so be careful

    How did you find that anyway? It's not on their coming soon list.
  • Deleted user 16 June 2009 10:00:37
    Ah, right

    Call of Cthulhu as well!

    Don't know if they intended it to be that secret, but anyone with a Steam press account can download all three right now.

    aaand they're up.

    I stand corrected. 17.53 for Morrowind complete + Oblivion complete (albeit with a limited 20% discount). Very nice prices.

    Nice price for the super extra deluxe oblivion! Bought.

    What's the crack with modding the fuck out of games on steam and has anyone got a good list of recommended mods?

    I know Morrowind needed the FPS optimiser program to make widescreen work... will the steam version work with widescreen displays right away?

    20% off, steam limited time deal?

    How do mods work with steam. I keep thinking about getting in and dirty and bolting on all the shit hot Morrowind mods, esp Vality's "it now looks like Oblivion" graphical ones.

    Mods will work fine, just drop them into the same directories as you would with the disc versions. Only exception will be if any mods have installers, you'll just need to point them toward the Steam Oblivion install instead.

    Hmm, this just caught my eye on Steam but I already have the standard version of Oblivion, albeit without any DLC or expansions. Would it be worth getting the full-blown thing (= GOTY Deluxe edition) at that price nonetheless?

    I've also started a new character not so long ago which I'd like to continue playing with (or rather, I don't want to go through the sewers and main Q up to Cloud Ruler Temple ever again :p), would that be possible?

    You need to replace the .exe with a cracked one to make mods work with the Steam version as well. The checksums don't match otherwise or something.

    12 for Morrowind AND Oblivion GOTY is the bargain of the year, so even if you already own Oblivion it's worth going for at that price.

    Your character should work fine, just backup your save game files then drop them into the new Steam Oblivion install. When you start back into the game you'll get all the notes and quest markers for the DLC. That's assuming you haven't installed any other mods on your current version, though.

    Really? That's a bit crap.

    Is Stalker also un-moddable for the same reasons?

    I think Stalker is fine for the most part, you just might have to create a 'gamedata' folder and some mods may not be compatible with the latest 1.0005 patch that the Steam version uses.

    That's only for mods that need the script extender.

    Thinking about the "Complete" mod set.

    RE: extender. I take it thats the Morrowind graphics extender then. Shame.

    True enough. Though you can at least apply some of the levelling mods so the game isn't horribly broken at least

    (cue Lutz and his insane defense of said broken system)

    All Morrowind mods should work - as far as I know they never needed script extenders or similar. The problem with the Oblivion mods that use the script extender is that the extender itself hooks into the .exe, which is protected by Steam.

    Eh? I never said that the system wasn't broken. It's very workable, but it's broken.
  • Deleted user 17 June 2009 10:24:00
    Oh, I don't know. Someone was claiming it wasn't a broken system in a big thread once. I just naturally presumed it was you due to your odd taste in things like salt and vinegar crisps. :p
