    Hmm, I've only ever played Daggerfall on Windows 7, and I'm afraid I've never heard of an error 0 before. Could it possibly be a problem with Dosbox itself, maybe not installing correctly?
    Hopefully Bonelord will be able to help you out more, I'm really ...

    This isn't related to the group or recommendations as much as it is just general troubleshooting, so Classics Hosts, apologies if this should go elsewhere. I just thought the Help Desk might be a good place to start and didn't want to bump any content dow...

    There would be to much great ideas for one game to include them all. :)

    My first experiance with TES was Morrowind GotY so I guess I was forged with having to repair armor and weapons. (as well as werewolves. Bloodmoon dlc hell yes). 
    I can't say it was ever a problem or issue. Having to take repair hammers...

    I used to hate the weapon degredation and had several weapons in case one breaks. But, recently I started to change my mind, it does add a bit of immersion. Having to take care of your weapon is important. I also like how the Witcher 3 handled it. If your...

    I actually enjoy the idea quite a bit. In Oblivion, specifically, I think it was handled nicely. I don't want invincible armor and weapons that can stand the test of time without a single repairing. It's actually one of my pet peeves wi...

    Nailed it much more eloquently than I did.

    "Nailed with eloquence." I could un-live happily with that as an epitaph :D Provided it was roughly chiselled.

    Getting the balance between immersion and tedium is very hard I guess.

    When done well, I definitly enjoy what it adds to immersion, however rpgs often seem to miss the mark on this one. For me personally it always ends up being at best an extra button to click at the merchant, at worst a chore. ESO, for all the lo...

    Meh, armor degradation is pretty cool from an immersive stand point. Let's face it, real life armor degardes with time and use. In ESO, it's just one more thing I have to be conscious about. Lol.

    Great news, available for Console? I hope so

    I forgot that the consoles can have mods now. Do consoles have MCM yet? If not, then probably not.

    I loved equipment degrading to the extent I am still hoping someone will produce a Mod to bring it back,

    They did. It's called "Weapons and Armor Degredation and Repair". A must-have on my mod list.

    I suppose I should give my thoughts here as well:
    Personally, I've never had a big problem with having to repair gear (In either game). It's a bit annoying from time to time, particularly when the hammers seem to brake more than anything else. But once I...

    I loved equipment degrading to the extent I am still hoping someone will produce a Mod to bring it back, it is far more immersive (in my opinion) I also liked the idea that visiting an armourer in town is usually a must for one without the skill, while pl...

    In Oblivion equipment takes forever to degrade. I once cleared every location between the Imperial City and Bruma in a set of steel armor with a matching sword and shield. I started at the Imperial City at full durability and once I got to Bruma (after ab...
