Re: The Future of OpenMW Scripting

I'm fine with whichever decision is made in this regard, and I'll do my best to make TES3MP work with it. That being said, TES3MP has been going with option B since the project was first started by Koncord, 7 months before I joined. Oldscript continues to exist and be used as the clientside scriptin...

Re: Microsoft Buys Github for $7.5 Billion

No thanks, I'll rather take a break until Microsoft is dead. The only reason I kept working on OpenMW was because I wanted it to be hallmark of engineering, of collaboration between OSS projects and of free software culture in general. I've long since stopped caring about 'playing morrowind', and i...

Re: Windows Pre-build Script Documentation Updated

That's going to require a whole lot of rewriting though. OpenMW wasn't written with this in mind. I think it's gone from the realm of hypotheticals because we already have a client-server model in TES3MP. Yes, our server is quite limited and unusually minimalist because we don't want to break compa...

Re: Windows Pre-build Script Documentation Updated

If we had a client-server model (even for singleplayer, like in Neverwinter Nights) where only the serverside scripting system could interface with online services, that would require servers to make sure they don't use scripts harmful to themselves, but the clients would be at no risk. That seems w...

Re: Windows Pre-build Script Documentation Updated

Putting aside the points of questionable merit that NullCascade has made, there is still the debate of whether mods executing native code is a really bad idea or a really good idea. NullCascade has previously given examples of mods that need to execute native code: In what use case do you need to a...

Re: Windows Pre-build Script Documentation Updated

tes3mp is going off in its own direction. @TeamTES3MP: care to share? As far as I was aware, we were on the same line and the two leads, DavidC and Koncord are here on the forums. Just talked with David a few days ago about an important feature in TES3MP that would have implications for OpenMW user...

Re: Microsoft Buys Github for $7.5 Billion

You should read more carefully; I outright dare to proclaim; If OpenMW would use DirectX exclusively we would have OpenSkyrim already. Where exactly did I imply to use DirectX to progress to OpenSkyrim on my own ? I did not imply that I would re-implement the OSG part, I made that clear multiple ti...

Re: Microsoft Buys Github for $7.5 Billion

There are mods for Vanilla MW not running on OpenMW, due to missing binary compatibility, that's what I am addressing here. If you're talking about lack of MWSE compatibility in OpenMW, I don't see why that needs to be addressed by a Windows-only fork. You could just have a cross-platform fork with...

Re: Microsoft Buys Github for $7.5 Billion

It may split into another direction, that's okay though. It's an open source project after all ? Of course no one is going to stop you, but we can still debate the wisdom of the direction. If some developers find it useful, they will catch up, especially after showing some candy on youtube (Windows...

Re: Microsoft Buys Github for $7.5 Billion

Well I started working on it. It would be Windows only. It's simply a response to the harsh building environment on Windows, an evolutionary process adapting to the environment. One has to do the job, each dependency I bring down means less hassle to compile OpenMW for new Windows native developers...
