Anyone able to post a non-patch version of the above?

Layout Editor

I heard this was still being worked on. Is that true? I've tried editing the GUI with the MyGUI Layout Editor, but whenever I use the OpenMW specific files, the app's layout gets messed up and I can't view the toolbar to do anything.

Summon Creatures Expansion

Instead of having a list of summoned creatures hardcoded, would it be possible to read from a list elsewhere so that additions can be easily added by various mods? Currently sMagicCreature04ID and sMagicCreature05ID are free, but that's just two slots between a number of mods. It's possible to add m...

Re: Undo the alleged MCP "fix" for Absorb spell reflection

Most of the rest of the debate here (or at least the bit that I've taken part in) is because a handful of users have made claims suggesting that anyone who speaks English well enough to know what 'Reflect' means should be completely opposed to one behaviour or the other. Because reflection isn't th...

Re: Undo the alleged MCP "fix" for Absorb spell reflection

I really don't want to have to draw pictures or write an essay here. So I won't. We can agree to disagree, however: The vanilla game is backing up my explanation of how it works. What you two are saying directly contradicts how the vanilla game works, and the entire point of the OpenMW project is to...

Re: Undo the alleged MCP "fix" for Absorb spell reflection

Which is what's happening. The target of the health damage is changed and the target of the health restoration is changed too. The target of the health damage is changed, but the target of the health restore isn't -- the reflector wasn't the target of the health restore, the caster was. So reflect ...

Re: Undo the alleged MCP "fix" for Absorb spell reflection

When light is reflected, the maths works out as if there's a virtual source behind the mirror, so if we take the light analogy and run with it, then the health would be sent back to a virtual caster, not the original one, and (unless the healing part gets reflected, too) that path goes via the orig...

Re: Undo the alleged MCP "fix" for Absorb spell reflection

That's circular logic as far as I can tell. It doesn't say in-game at any point that reflection only changes the target of a specific component of the spell or whether or not the effective caster changes. (I say effective caster because the original caster's magika is what gets used.) Both options ...

Re: Undo the alleged MCP "fix" for Absorb spell reflection

The spell creates a connection between you (the caster) and the victim (the target). The spell then normally sends health from the victim to you over that connection, but with reflect, the flow is reflected (reversed) so it goes from you to the victim. Easy. That isn't how reflection works in any s...

Re: Undo the alleged MCP "fix" for Absorb spell reflection

It only doesn't make sense as a fix when specifically described like that. You could just as easily come up with a metaphor that only works the other way. No metaphor to explain it the other way works because that isn't how the concept of the spell works. The basics are simple: you have the caster ...
