The patch I downloaded wouldn't work. sigh. it seemed to be a patch for the construction part. (Didn't SAY THAT though!)

can't download the other patch I found....

oh I can't find a way to get Heard Heart to attack me. I bought a spell of frenzy humanoid (on recommendation) then got a spell maker to strengthen it and convert it to target mode.

the spell had NO EFFECT even though it didn't fail.

so now what can I do to complete the quest? he can't be provoked or taunted.... >:(

1) Official patch page:
http://support.bethsoft.com/patches.php

Firstly you should install Bloodmoon (as the other patches won't work properly without it), then the one you want from that page is the European version of the Bloodmoon-compatible patch - http://download.zenimax.com/elderscrolls/morrowind/patches/Bloodmoon_v1.6.1820.exe

2) You then want the Unofficial Patch - made by members of the modding community - fixes many hundreds of bugs that the official patch by Bethesda doesn't fix.  You can get the latest version (1.6.5b) from http://btb2.free.fr/files/morrowind_patch.zip

3) Finally, you want the Unofficial Code Patch.  This fixes many game engine bugs that the other patches are unable to fix, and prevents and allows fixes to savegame corruption.  You can get this from http://download.fliggerty.com/download-58-139

You'll need all three patches (installed in that order) in order to have the most bug-free and stable version of Morrowind.



As for Hard Hart, that's a bug :(
You'll need to hit him first.  The UESP says
Quote
He may not outright attack you but demand to know if you've killed the Thieves Guild bosses yet. You may have to attack him (or use the console) to fight him but you should not draw a bounty or be expelled from the Fighters Guild (if you are near other Fighters Guild NPCs, they will become hostile with you if you provoke the fight).

Note: If you want to install Tribunal at any stage, hold of playing Morrowind until you can get that - if you're quick you can get the expansion disc off ebay for £2.99 including shipping http://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/i.html?_trksid=p2050601.m570.l1313.TR0.TRC0.Xmorrowind+tribunal&_nkw=morrowind+tribunal&_sacat=0&_from=R40.  If you want to do that, then install Tribunal first, then Bloodmoon, then the patches.

Well I managed to kill Hard-Heart without getting a bounty...
even installed the update. (Thanks Jackstarr for finding the right one for me)

Now in Bloodmoon I have a problem with the Test of Strength quest. I completed it but I can't find the Sharman to report my success and can't get the next quest in the chain as a result.

I thought that he would be in the same place on the lake..
no!

I have walked all around the lake... He isn't there....

I have checked his home... Not there either....


what is wrong?

I believe this could be the best investment you could make this year http://www.amazon.com/The-Morrowind-Prophecies-Official-Strategy/dp/0929843320

Notes:

Sometimes when you complete the trial Wind-Eye may not be in the same place on the northern shore of the lake or found anywhere else. If you go back to the Skaal Village and talk again to Heart-Fang at the Great Hall about the quest and get him to repeat where Wind-Eye is located, when you go back to the lake he should have returned to his previous position.


Bugs:

When receiving this quest from Heart-Fang, make sure to select "prove your strength" and receive the journal entry before speaking to Korst in his hut; otherwise Korst will not appear at the lake to complete the quest (remaining in his hut), and after the werewolf attack in the next quest, will disappear altogether.

I'll be surprised if this bug isn't fixed by the unofficial patches, but if it isn't fixed, try going back to Heart-Fang in the great hall and getting him to repeat the shaman's location and see if that works.  If not, the next step would be to use the console to move him to you and/or to use "setstage" to force the quest to be finished, enabling the next quest.  But try speaking with Heart-Fang again first.

If you're stuck offline and need immediate assistance, the book might be worth a punt, but everything in it and anything else you could want to know can be found for free on the UESP.

Great!

Remember the Skaal well - you'll be visiting Solstheim again, 200 years in the future, if you get around to playing Skyrim and its DLC, Dragonborn...

Regrettably not. I have no internet connection and the stupid steam people well ... I bought TWO copies of Skyrim and they say BOTH are registered to me but... one shouldn't be because I bought it for a friend so he could play it and he can't cause it says it's mine so I gave him the password I used and it refuses to recognize it and ....

Well, let's get that fixed then!

What happens when you log into Steam yourself - does it recognize your password?

Mind you at the moment I am still waiting for The Spirit Bear to turn up.... Or rather the werewolfs to kill the two members of the Spirit Bear hunting party. The game guide says that I have to wait next to long tooth until we hear a scream .... Been standing next to him for over an hour real time.... NOTHING....

Known bugs:

The Ristaag quest can be broken if you say goodbye to Rolf before doing the “ensure our success” topic, causing him to say “Shhh… we must hunt…” with no further options.

This bug is fixed by the Morrowind Patch Project.
Get it from http://btb2.free.fr/files/morrowind_patch.zip


If this is what you did, you need the Unofficial Morrowind Patch - but not sure if this will fix the issue once encountered (sometimes the patches only prevent bugs from happening in the first place, not fix them once they have happened).  Do you have a savegame from before you spoke with him regarding the Ristaag?

Does that mean you're able to log into Steam now?

No it means when I have tried it claims that I have already registered an account THEN when I enter the password says its incorrect / not fully registered.
That happened with the first copy of Skyrim.

then when I bought a second for a friend who tried to use HIS details... It said that the new game was already registered to me ... Even though it was unopened and I live in Croydon and he lives in Clacton On Sea....

So I tried my usual passwords on it.... None were accepted.

Then his PC broke down... And when he tried to install it to his new machine... It still claimed that it was mine....

Do you know your Steam account name?

To reset a lost password:

- Launch the Steam application on your computer.
- From the Steam Login dialog, click the "Retrieve a lost account..." button.


1) If you do not know your Steam Account name:

Select the I don't know my account name. option and click Next.
- Select an item of information, preferably the account's contact email address.
- Enter the contact email address on record with Steam to have Steam Support email your Steam Account name to this address.
- Repeat the initial step in this process and, upon receiving the email message containing your Account name, select the "I know my account name" option. Or, if you didn't receive this email message, Contact Steam Support.


2) If you know your Steam Account name:

- Select the I know my account name. option and click Next.
- Enter your account name in the Account name field and click Next.
- Check the contact email address for your Steam account for an email containing your Verification Code and Secret Question. If you didn't receive this email message, Contact Steam Support.
- Enter your verification code and the answer to your secret question in the Verification code and Secret answer fields respectively, then click Next.
- Steam will next require you to select a new password. Enter your new password twice to confirm the change, then click the Next button to reset your password.



I suspect that what has happened, is that the game you bought for your friend is still in your Steam Inventory - once you can get signed in to Steam, you can then go to you Inventory and gift it to your friend from there...but we'll see to that when we get to that stage :)
