Re: CPU and Single Core Implications

The benefits of deferred shading and lighting are that you don't have to do anything with lights at all until you're at a point when you know exactly which lights will affect each pixel and then for each individual light, you can do a single additive pass over the existing framebuffer to add its con...

Re: OpenMW 0.44.0

Is that video trying to show why we should or why we shouldn't have post-processing shaders? It looks like the latter.

Re: OpenMW 0.44.0

Currently, I'm trying to work out why when perspective shadow mapping is on (which is supposed to use a perspective transformation to light space in order to push more of the detail in the shadow map to things closer to the camera so one shadow map texel roughly corresponds to one screen pixel) the ...

Re: Should water refractions be scaled?

Is the change we've made definitely physically correct instead of just looking physically correct in a few test cases which look good?

Re: CPU and Single Core Implications

I imagine that if it turns out the task of reorganising and optimising existing meshes can be automated, we could have an official tool for doing it. I don't see any particular reason why we couldn't have a thread on the forums where our users discuss performing the task manually or promote that the...

Re: CPU and Single Core Implications

Boris Vorontsov is also supposed to be a raging anti-semite from what I've heard (although I can't for the life of me remember where I heard that and a quick google didn't bring anything up, so I might be completely wrong), and he was once really mean to the Dolphin Emulator developers for essential...

Re: CPU and Single Core Implications

Is the draw bar definitely entirely caused by CPU-side draw calls, or does it also include stuff like waiting for the GPU to actually draw what it's been told to?

Re: OpenMW 0.43.0

A rule of thumb (that isn't necessarily hard-and-fast as we're pre-1.0) is that a release can only be held back by bugs that weren't in the previous release. Obviously, if there's something critical that's already been fixed in master that affects a large proportion of users, it might be backported,...

Re: High mercantile == buying/selling prices ridiculous low

Fallout 1 lets you make a bunch of money by repeated buying and selling once you have high enough skills. I abused the crap out of that system but justified it to myself by pretending that I was just incredibly convincing. The best solution long-term in my mind is to give everything a base price and...
