OpenMW - Morrowind engine replacement : 0.19.0 Released :

I'm sure there are many fans of the epic RPG : Morrowind. I myself played it for hours and hours until someone decided to complete it with a speed run, damn you speedy gamers!. But now we have an engine Replacer which in time will improve the game so much more in many different ways ( as if it needs improving some will say).

Here is a snippet about the Engine Replacer
 OpenMW is a community effort to write a new, open source, engine that replaces The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind's original one. The engine uses several middle-ware, most notably, OGRE 3D for graphics rendering and Bullet Physics for collision. It compiles on Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux and has native 32 and 64-bit packages. 
Today  OpenMW announced the release of version 0.19.0, release notes below

Instructions :
You must legally own and install Morrowind before you can use OpenMW as it is intended – to play Morrowind. OpenMW is a reimplementation of the technical aspects of the game only. It does not come with any “content” – namely the art, game data, and other copyrighted material that you need to play the game as designed by Bethesda Softworks. You have to provide this content yourself by installing Morrowind and then configuring OpenMW to use the existing installation.
