Re: [patch] new fog shader

This is looking really good! It still affects the minimap, but it's usable, unlike with the old version. This is fantastic work!

Re: Distant objects

Those look to be pretty ideal to me, especially if these simplified meshes were only shown at greater distances, with the full object being used for things closer. This looks no worse than MGE's 50% simplification to me.

Re: [WIP] Android port testing

Try that with fallback-archive lines in your openmw.cfg file

fallback-archive=PT_Data.bsa
fallback-archive=TR_Data.bsa

They are ordered in precedence, but do not have explicit enumeration like they did in Morrowind.ini

Re: OpenMW Nightly builds

Just a Linux designation for 64-bit IBM architecture for mainframes (IBM Z). I doubt that OpenMW will have many users on this platform (sysadmins during work time? :lol: ). s390 (without x) is a designation for old 32-bit architecture (IBM System/390 series mainframes). You'll be surprised how bore...

Re: It's really important to have graphical parity with MGE.

I hate this comparison. After all, OpenMW had real normal mapping before MGE did. It has dynamic water reflections, which MGE does not. It'll be capable of reflecting shadows, which to my knowledge, MGE XE cannot do. It has the capability of rendering distant terrain at ranges far surpassing MGE wit...

Re: Wiki SEO

We noticed similar behavior from Bing at Tamriel Rebuilt as well. Continuously indexing the old forum archive, and slowing the site to a crawl on its old infrastructure, as well as causing out of memory conditions with the database engine. I recently unblocked it there after the infrastructure moves...

Re: XL Engine source code release!

I do think it's an interesting experiment that LuciusXL enabled procedural height generation in Daggerfall, but frankly the more I walk around in the game space, the less I like it, due to the fact that the clutter sprites are quite flat, and it very much doesn't look right. Perhaps it could be conf...

Re: "Side-Quests" Sub-forum request

I mean, eventually we'll probably need a "Mods" section too. I think the discussions involving Multiplayer support, Android support and Raspberry Pi support haven't already garnered a call to open up the Mods sub-forum yet. They might get more involvement if we did... These three examples feel like...

Re: XL Engine source code release!

So, I played around with this a bit today. With Daggerfall, and the soft32 renderer, XLEngine segfaults on load. The soft8 renderer is the most complete for Daggerfall so far -- The OpenGL renderer seems to render everything, but nothing is textured, leading the play area to be very... Monochrome. F...

Re: XL Engine source code release!

Well, when I try and use XLEngine with my copy of Dark Forces, I just get a black screen -- Mind you, it's a CD version installed manually in Dosbox years back, I may not have all the files XLEngine is looking for, but I'm not getting any other messaging on the console. (I expect the original progra...
