Re: Help running on Mac via Winery/Wineskin

You might be able to pull it off, but I'm not sure how easy it's going to be. The problem seems to be that Wine is having trouble finding the files needed for OpenMW to work. The cloud of yellow exclamation marks you're seeing are the same ones that appear when OpenMW can't find a model that is bein...

Re: Help running on Mac via Winery/Wineskin

You've tried installing the .dmg file here? https://github.com/OpenMW/openmw/releases You don't need Winery to run OpenMW on Mac, only to install the original game off of Steam so you can get the files that you need to use OpenMW. From my understanding the Mac client works fine right now, although y...

Re: Help running on Mac via Winery/Wineskin

Is there a reason you are using Winery instead of the native Mac client? I believe you do need something like Wine in order to acquire the Morrowind files for OpenMW to work, but you want to use the native clients after that on Mac and Linux because they are more performant/reliable.

Re: Problem installing animations.

In OpenMW you never need (or want really) to overwrite any of the default files in your Data folder. Simply add something like "data=c:/mymodfolder/nameofmod" line to the end of your config.cfg (located in documents/mygames/openmw on Windows and ~/.config/openmw on Linux) and OpenMW will override th...

Re: Shadows

Big step forward. From about 2-3 hours of testing, it seems like the only major issues left are weird drops in resolution at certain angles and distant land stretching the resolution beyond its capabilities. Just night and day in regards to visual stability. Great work and thank you for all the time...

Re: Shadows

Compiling is about as far as I go with computers, but I've noticed that equipping any weapon with a magic/enchanted effect around it and then going third person will cause all shadows to disappear. You can also put the weapon on the ground, and as long as it's in your view, shadows will also disappe...

Re: Distant terrain

Really excited to finally see this implemented. One thing I found interesting about this is how strangely discomforting it is to lose your sense of scale. Without statics or proper fog, it's hard to tell how close that giant hill is in the distance (or if it's even giant at all). Jumping with 10k+ a...

Re: Better player movement collisions

After messing around a bit more, I'd like to go into a bit more detail. It seems some areas handle a lot more elegantly than others. Balmora and Seyda Neen are almost perfect outside of a few trouble spots. The Vivec canteens and less boxy areas, on the other hand, are a big problem. The slopes on a...

Re: Better player movement collisions

Wow, I didn't even think this was possible in a game with so much weird geometry. Almost have to try and find odd slopes and overhangs to get caught on now. Just a few more changes to player movement (high speed momentum oddities, sudden snapping to low height surfaces, inability to jump when pressi...

Which makes it all the crazier that the engine can handle stuff like this without crashing.

I bet I could even load up all of TR if I had more RAM.
