Re: Elder Scrolls: VI

SPOILER They don't need to use Dragon Breaks as an excuse for lore inconsistencies any longer. Elder Scrolls Online Summerset recently introduced a multiverse. Nocturnal tried to use the Crystal tower to "amplify" herself through all of existence by connecting to the other versions of her in paralle...

Re: Microsoft Buys Github for $7.5 Billion

Linux is a great operating system, love to use it for servers and embedded devices,
the Microsoft of 2018 loves Open Source.

Which will be my last addition to this thread.

Re: Microsoft Buys Github for $7.5 Billion

@davidcernat Unless you're too far on the wrong side of the Dunning-Kruger effect, you need to take a step back and ask yourself if – as an unproven quantity even to yourself – you really know what you're talking about by suggesting we'll move closer to "OpenSkyrim already" with your "1-2 hours at e...

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. This kind of mod will literally never be compatible with OpenMW, no matter how much of it you change. If you make a mod that modifies the original engine's executable it's not...

Re: Microsoft Buys Github for $7.5 Billion

I can't figure out what you mean by "Windows mod compatibility." I haven't seen any difference between using mods on different platforms for OpenMW. There are mods for Vanilla MW not running on OpenMW, due to missing binary compatibility, that's what I am addressing here. I also hope you realize th...

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...

Re: Microsoft Buys Github for $7.5 Billion

I simply clarified, that it would have been a better option. No, it would not. There is no point to maintain different rendering systems on different platforms. Our graphics subsystem is already complex enough. This assumes I want to target multiple platforms... Anyway, I will just continue de *nix...

DirectX isn't even an option. Now you're just trolling.
I didn't say I want to use DirectX for OpenMW, please read my post and my previous posts again. I simply clarified, that it would have been a better option. But now we already have OSG.

Re: Microsoft Buys Github for $7.5 Billion

I don't understand the problem however, Origin's launcher is Qt based for example... why did they choose Qt when they don't have any cash-flow problems? Obviously it works for them and their developers. Why would Nvidia invest so much time and money into Qt to improve it's 3D capabilities? It's cer...

Re: Microsoft Buys Github for $7.5 Billion

I can spare 1-2 hours at evening removing libraries like OpenAL, Qt , Boost over time. I have a suspicion that only get rid of Qt will take a lot more time, even if you just decided to drop launcher and OpenMW-CS at all. Also I do not understand which profit it gives for end-user. Actually, I think...
