The Elder Scrolls II: Daggerfall

DaggerfallSetup was done for install a ready to play Daggerfall easily on modern Windows Systems.

The game is already patched with the patch 1.07.213, the official questpack CompUSA Special Edition and two unofficials fixes. It work with a already configured DosBox. It proposes as options all unofficial fixes, unofficial quests packs and game translations (see Components). If you decide to install all unofficial fixes (proposed by default), the classic Daggerfall installed by DaggerfallSetup shall be fully compatible with Daggerfall Unity 1.0.

Like any Windows Setup, you can install Daggerfall anywhere on your computer. The setup can add a shortcut on your desktop, a folder in your start menu and a quick launch icon. Off course, you can uninstall Daggerfall as easily as you can install it.

Due to the fact that DaggerXL is an abandonned and non finished project, compatibility of DaggerfallSetup with DaggerXL is not anymore tested.

Upgraded to 1.0 on December 31, 2023, Daggerfall Unity is now the preferred way to run Daggerfall on modern systems, with improved graphics and the ability to receive a wide range of mods. Translations are also present, and in much better condition than the classic Daggerfall patch allowed. The French translation (the PFDU) is now 100% complete, so are translation in Spanish, Russian and Turkish; German or Portugese will soon join this state. As a result, the French (PFD 0.35) and German (DfD 0.77) translations of classic Daggerfall contained in this version of DaggerfallSetup are normally the last to be produced by their respective teams, except if the content of the installation must be fixed. The future of Daggerfall translation now lies in Daggerfall Unity.

Install on a old character ?

You can use your old savegame with DaggerfallSetup. Most of contents won't alter your savegame. However, I commend to finish/cancel all your actives secondary quests before installing quest fixes.

If you want uninstall some contents, it's the same:

  • Finish/Cancel your secondary quests before if you want uncheck a quest fixe or a Quest Pack.
  • If you use Dagskill, you need to keep it if your stats are upper 100%.
  • If you use a translation, some words can remain in your savegame.

And, the most important: do a back up of your save, just in case.
