Moved OpenMW to OS section as more relevant there; removed MCP mention as it has nothing to do with resolution or aspect ratio and is covered under Mods
==Operating System==
Morrowind will run on Windows 98 or later, including Windows Vista and Windows 7. For Windows Vista problems, please see {{BSForums|topic=781497-vistawindows-7-problems/page__view__findpost__p__11345025|the Win7/Vista thread on the official forums}}. For users of non-Microsoft Operating Systems, getting Morrowind to run can be a bit more complex. Linux users need to use [http://www.winehq.org/ Wine] to emulate DirectX. Mac owners will be able to run Morrowind through [http://www.apple.com/macosx/bootcamp/ Boot Camp], which requires an Intel based Mac and a copy of Windows, or through Wine installed with [http://brew.sh Homebrew]. Intel-based Macs can also run Morrowind Via Cider, downloadable as a torrent, though this route requires higher hardware specs than the original game. As a third option, installing Linux on an Intel based Macintosh computer will allow it to run Morrowind through Wine without a copy of Windows.
 
[[Morrowind Mod:OpenMW|OpenMW]] is an engine recreation that allows Morrowind to run in the much more modern OpenMW engine, which improves performance, allows full utilization of modern GPUs, fixes many engine bugs, greatly reduces the chance of a CTD and allows changing of the screen resolution to more modern resolutions like 1920 × 1080. OpenMW also allows the game to run natively on MacOS and Linux.
 
==Resolution and Aspect Ratio==
Morrowind Graphics Extender and [[Morrowind Mod:MGE XE|MGE XE]] are also excellent utilities for higher-level PCs that allow one to change the screen resolution easily, as well as optionally implementing shader on textures, and making the water more like oblivion's. They are most notable for distant land features. Both MGE versions require a fairly fast computer to take advantage of most of these features.

[[Morrowind Mod:Morrowind Code Patch|Morrowind Code Patch]] Is a program which fixes many engine bugs, and is recommended for users of the original engine.
You can also set any custom resolution by hand: (Note that Morrowind must be fully launched at least one time for these registry settings to be viewable)
