Re: Shader License

Anything with a more permissive licence can be sublicensed as GPL3 when it's added to our repo. Anything with a less permissive licence isn't allowed in our repo in the first place.

Re: Shader License

Images can be covered by the GPL, but it's not necessarily the best licence to put those things under.

Re: Shader License

The specular function is just boring old Phong reflection, which has been standard since the 70s and is so ubiquitous that it's part of OpenGL's fixed-function pipeline. It's only not used in really recent games which use something based on real life, like Cook-Torrance instead, so there's no reason...

Re: Openmwcs-merge

Can't do that, because after the merge B isn't B anymore. It is a new content file (B'). To do it in order, you would have to port C2 to B' first. There are no benefits to this approach, especially since you lose the ability to aromatically detect conflicts. Surely the conflicts still exist between...

Re: Openmwcs-merge

Is it not conceptually simpler to merge C1 into B and then merge C2 into the new B as a completely independent operation? If we compare to Git, we've got the equivalent of trying to merge two branches into master at once, when really we should merge one branch, then resolve any conflicts this causes...

Re: Water shaders, OpenMW vs MGEXE

I think the transparency effect there is way too strong. IRL, it's easy to see where the water starts and the ground stops, but in those screenshots, it isn't.

Re: Openmwcs-merge

Wrye Fl/B/Mash is obsolete. Mator Smash and Mator's Merge Plugins do a much better job (for example, they merge records other than levelled lists). I don't think they support Morrowind, though, as they're based on xEdit. If we make the plugin system nice, I don't imagine it would be too difficult to...

Re: Openmwcs-merge

I definitely consider it well within the scope of the CS, even if it's provided as a plugin rather than a built-in feature.

Re: Water shaders, OpenMW vs MGEXE

I'm pretty sure the depth of the water is used for something already (as at the very least it's something that needs to be known to get refraction right. If the effect isn't there, we do already have all the data we need to implement it.

Re: Help us plan OpenMW's future

That concern goes away if the from-bytecode converter is just a CS tool for quick, dirty and unmaintainable ports and not the default option for anything.
