Re: XL Engine source code release!

The other Elderscrolls games will never be made compatible with OpenMW. There are far too many differences between the engine requirements of these games. Right. That's what the other engine re-implementations are for. I meant brand-new games that are made with OpenMW. I thought that was part of th...

Re: XL Engine source code release!

Is there a forum for opentesarena? Otherwise an option would be hold a subforum for these kinda 'side-quests'. It doesn't have a forum yet since it's still in a very nomadic state :), hovering between here and the Daggerfall Unity forums, which is kind of how I like it. I'd rather not manage my own...

Re: XL Engine source code release!

Seems it is already using C++11 features as part of the fixing-up process (std::string::back(), std::string::pop_back(), std::stoi()), so just pass -std=c++11 and it should compile. Alternatively those pieces of code could be replaced with older features, but ultimately I think the project is going ...

Re: OpenTESArena 0.6.0 Released!

On that note, if it would suit you, I'd like to help out by doing release commentary for you. I have a blue yeti and a lot of youtube experience and video editing skills. I used to have a channel that had thousands of subs, and is under new management now. I have started a new one, and have been ha...

OpenTESArena 0.6.0 Released!

Hey everyone, I released version 0.6.0 of my open-source engine for Arena. Here is the release video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SREWBHaL_eA I focused primarily on loading the original level data this time. Although it's just voxel geometry at the moment, you can explore the first level of main...

Re: (Post 1.0 feature) Randomly-generated dungeons in-game

I believe the MQ dungeons for Arena were fixed, but the wilderness dungeons were random I think. I'm not 100% positive though. Chris is essentially on target. The main quest dungeons (Stonekeep, Fang Lair, ...) are all premade with fixed monster spawns, as well as the city interiors (equipment, Mag...

Re: Changing some std::maps to std::unordered_map?

Another option to consider is a flat map (not in C++ standard, but easy to implement). It was interesting to hear someone in that video say that std::unordered_map has been "known to be slow for many years" (compared to custom hash tables). That says a lot about std::map, too. I do like your sugges...

Re: Changing some std::maps to std::unordered_map?

Run a profiler like callgrind and if you see any overhead where maps are used we can think about replacing those in particular... if that's not the case then this is just speculation or in other words a waste of time. Right. I was just curious about whether this was something worth investigating in...

Changing some std::maps to std::unordered_map?

I've been brainstorming some small things to do for my first contribution to OpenMW. I noticed that std::map is used frequently in the codebase, so I thought I'd bring this up. One of the additions in C++11 is the std::unordered_map, which is a hash table, unlike std::map, which is a tree. An unorde...

OpenTESArena Interview with Zhakaron

I had a talk with Zaric Zhakaron yesterday about my open-source Arena project. I mentioned OpenMW near the beginning.
