Re: Help us plan OpenMW's future

This is definitely getting off topic. It’s probably best to start a new thread about reverse engineering plugin bytecode, or to debate the merits of a Python as a programming language for doing that reverse engineering.

Re: Shader License

How does this sound? Unless otherwise indicated, all OpenMW code is covered under the GPLv3. I assume that shaders is covered under code as well. I agree. My understanding is that, so long as the repository has always had a license indicating that it is GPLv3, then any contributions to it have alwa...

It still affects the minimap, but it's usable, unlike with the old version.
Fog on the minimap (and overhead map in general) might actually be a cool feature that roleplayers would enjoy. Maybe it's worth considering as an optional setting?

The FAQ entry is a bit dated for when we shipped other fonts and had other licensed assets.
I have the ability to edit the FAQ. What do we want it to say?

Re: Openmwcs-merge

Quick heads-up: I started to work on a 2nd more elaborate merge tool (was planning to have a go at that for quite a while). This will cover your use-case. But don't hold your breath. Still have extremely little time available for OpenMW and right now I am already happy if I get to write 10 lines of...

Re: mwse coders created something interesting..

Definitely agree that it’s really nice! I think the only main barrier for adding it to OpenMW proper is localization (this is the same thing that prevents us from adding new features to the game and requires us to keep it in the Launcher). However, that is part of the post-1.0 design document.

Re: The Future of OpenMW Scripting

Hypothetically, let's say you want to split a string by some delimiter, and OpenMW exposes a function that does that. What are you going to find if you google how to split a string in Lua? This: http://lua-users.org/wiki/SplitJoin , which is crazy. On the other hand, if you learned to check the Ope...

Re: Playing sound/music files from dialogue topic.

I'm confused, what is the difference between "dialogue results" and general dialogue?

Re: The Future of OpenMW Scripting

According to the TIOBE Index , Lua is currently the 25th most popular programming language. TIOBE does track AngelScript, but it's not in the top 100. It's also ranked number 22 on the IEEE Spectrum Top Programming Languages of 2017 (free registration required to view). As best I can tell, the only ...

Re: Is there a better way to document mod compatibility?

We could always talk to the Nexus people about that. If they don't respond to an email (which they probably will), I might be able to get Tannin to put us in contact with the right people as he's responded to discord DMs from me before when it's been about Mod Organizer's guts, and he works for the...
