It is probably because they used the same game engine as Morrowind, which would also crash regularly. Defraging your hard drive and shutting off background tasks should alleviate the problem.


its a brand new engine built from the ground up, not morrowinds.


anyways the new beta patch is out!

No, thats the marketing getting in the way of facts. They rebuilt the engine, but it is basically the same engine, Gamebryo, used both in morrowind and Oblivion.

As for the patch, I haven't had any of the problems others have mentioned, so I won't download it until it is no longer beta.

Just Google it, I'm almost certain someone has uploaded it. Someone took the time to make a really hi-res scan of the strategy guide (somewhere in the 400-600mb area, I just have it on a CD). I'm sure it's out there somewhere...unless none of the people who bought the Collector's Edition want anyone else to have it.

Wow, this makes me realize how long it's been since I was an active user here.

So i'm just riding along when I come across a cave that happens to be a Black Bow (I think that's their name) hideout. I go in and sneak near the first room and i hear fighting up ahead. Thinking maybe their might be a rat or at most a troll in the cave, it turns out their is a whole gang of orc marauders that's raiding the black bows. So it made my job of clearing the cave o-so-easy, watch them fight then clear out the wounded. I make my way to the final room and after all is said and done there was about eight to ten dead bodies in just in this one room. I only wish I was level 20 so I could get some sweet loot. Here's the best part. In the room there are tents and I could enter one of them. I go in and there is a dog that i make quick work of. I go to search the dog body and it's name was Pumpkin ;D
I need a new tag.

I recently started a battlemage style character with the intention of completing the main quest (not avtually relevant to the story).

On the main quest I was travelling through the sewers with Baurus on the way to meet the Mythic Dawn contact. Suddenly baurus draws his sword and shouts "Look out!" and runs ahead... to kill a rat. This continued for most of the journey through the sewers. "Die!!!"...mudcrab. "Look out!"... goblin.

I think Baurus is channeling the spirit of Navi  ::)
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

It's still a Beta patch.

They've released the beta patch on the PC first to work out all the bugs, it'll be released on the 360 when they know it works.
If they released a patch for the 360 that only made things worse, that would cause big problems.

The 360 version of Oblivion is a shambles. There are some serious bugs and choppy peerformance. How long do you think the Beta period will be?
