Re: Hey let's switch away from bullet to anything else

Bullet (and other physics engines) work by resolving collisions, not avoiding them.

You would have to switch away from all the ray/convex casting and use rigid bodies. Zero out angular velocity to keep characters bodies upright (or use a constraint).

Re: NVIDIA Turing GPUs

They've added a bunch of dedicated ray-triangle intersection units to the GPU. And implementing algorithms in hardware is always much more efficient than running them on generic processing units. Btw Nvidia are not the first to offer hardware accelerated ray tracing. PowerVR had ray tracing units in...

Re: post processing

I am not an OSG user, so take this with a grain of salt. As mentioned you need to create a quad. Attach it to your post processing camera. Then attach the camera to omw root node. You will also need main camera render outputs as inputs for you post processing pass. Have a look here (Rendering a scen...

Re: The Future of OpenMW Scripting

Still, there seems to be a consensus for Lua (for the most part) and I don't see anyone bringing forth viable alternatives. Well, Lua is lightweight and fast for a scripting language, making it somewhat popular. As for alternatives: There is Squirrel, which is also pretty lightweight but is closer ...

They also use Lua and target the following:

Re: The Future of OpenMW Scripting

If there is so much interest in Lua, one of the Lua proponents could implement Lua bindings(there are numerous binding libs to help with this) and rewrite current script compiler generate Lua bytecode. It shouldn't be too hard given how primitive mw script is. And you'd have something tangible to ar...

Re: Microsoft Buys Github for $7.5 Billion

The entire build environment is incredible hostile to Windows NT based computing systems. More than that, this board disallows the use of outlook as a service provider for registration. Accordingly I am not surprised that many people here see Microsoft's acquisition of github as hostile takeover. I...

Re: The future of OpenMW on OSX

Actually, they got up to 4.1 as of macOS 10.9 (Mavericks).
Oh, so they've added Tesselation support. Nonetheless GL 3.3 and 4.1 are 8 years old by now.

I don't see them removing it anytime soon. They would break a lot of existing applications.

Re: The future of OpenMW on OSX

Deprecation means that OpenGL won't be updated anymore. But afaik they haven't been updating it for quite some time anyway, stopped at GL 3.3. So nothing will change I'd guess.

Re: Physics for non-moving actors

The unit is milliseconds I guess.
