Re: Performance drops in cities

You have enabled lots of things that increase the load on the system : distant terrain , object paging , anisotropy=8 , antialiasing = 8 , water shader, shadows . Also async num threads is set rather high . On my 12 core / 24 threads threadripper I don't get benefits with anything above 4. Are you u...

Re: [SOLVED] Unable to compilation in Manjaro/Arch

For those failing to build openmw-git on archlinux , manjaro and other distros that support AUR :
use my https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/bullet-multithreaded

It's built with multithreaded support (needed for async physics) AND Double precision .

Re: Help figuring out framerate!

Not all distros do use that file, but I'm 95& sure *buntu does and Linux MInt uses many *buntu pacakges as base for their own.

Ok , falling back to a more generic way :

as root run

Code: Select all

# dmesg | grep -i smp

Re: Help figuring out framerate!

Ok, your X setup looks good. /proc has its own filesystem called procfs[1] and files under /proc are special . Post the output of $ zcat /proc/config.gz | grep SMP [1] https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Procfs P.S. It seems my memories of a piledriver laptop (running archlinux) differ from those of other...

Re: Help figuring out framerate!

OTOH the amd Piledriver cores used in the A10 5800k are known for having good multicore performance. Amd opensource drivers on linux tend to perform much better then the proprietary ones (linux AND windows) and have great OpenGL / Vulkan support. data0angel, your system has 2 videocards : an integra...

Imperial cult altar 'Restore Attributes' costs 25 gold for non-members and is supposed to do exactly the same as almsivi restoration .

Re: which bullet settings are needed for async-physics ?

Thanks for the clarification.


@openmw-git users of Archlinux, Manjaro and other aur supporting distros :

I created and uploaded a bullet package with multithreaded support.
install https://aur.archlinux.org/pkgbase/bullet-multithreaded/ and rebuild openmw-git against it

Re: which bullet settings are needed for async-physics ?

By the way, I think you've got your compiler support wrong. I see handling for OpenMP with MSVC, too, and nothing compiler-specific with TBB, just that you need to provide a path to the library. Yep, the compiler part was incorrect guesswork. Thank you for the clear answers, AnyOldName3 and psi29a ...

which bullet settings are needed for async-physics ?

I noticed that https://gitlab.com/OpenMW/openmw/-/commit/c16fa274079d12fd82b221230d9e6091edbd2790 allows physics to run in separate threads when bullet is built with multithreading support . I checked bullet 3.06 https://github.com/bulletphysics/bullet3/blob/3.06/CMakeLists.txt . There appear to be ...
