Re: New Font Implementation

I thought this was written up in the wiki somewhere? https://wiki.openmw.org/index.php?title=Fonts This should eventually be migrated to our docs section so it can be rendered on RTD. (TODO/HELP) Anyway, in your resources directory there should be a xml file, in that file you can change the font ou...

Re: New Font Implementation

So how can I use for example Open Sans font in OpenMW? If I can, can someone write me a technical instruction how to do it or point me in the right direction?

Re: Free Software vs Open Source

My personal preference is to use the best software available to me, using freeness and openness as tiebreakers when it's not immediately clear what's best. I'm a lot happier knowing that if I break something, I can dig in and work out why it's broken and either fix it or make it easy for someone mo...

Re: Free Software vs Open Source

Open Source suggest that it is a good development methodology to lincense software under the GPL or other Free Software licences. If your open source software is under a free software license, then your software *is* both open source and free software. I don't see why these need to be at odds with ...

New Font Implementation

Morrowind uses bitmap font, and OpenMW engine has replicated that, but I would like to see OpenMW to have Morrowind font compatible with standard font formats. I really don't like vanilla font, and all the other bitmap font replacers that I found.

Re: Free Software vs Open Source

Where do you stand, Free Software or Open Source? Neither, because it is a false dichotomy, nay, it is a meaningless question. Terms like "user's freedom" and "user's rights" are being bandied about, with absolutely no inkling of what their meaning is, any conceptual grounding or justification for ...

Free Software vs Open Source

Where do you stand, Free Software or Open Source? Bouth terms talk about essentially the same software because all Free Software is Open Source, but some small portion of Open Source software isn't Free Software, but they have two very different approach to it. Open Source suggest that it is a good ...

Re: Free-licensed game in OpenMW engine?

I don't think that licencing the content of a game based on OpenMW engine is necessarily bad. But the current copyright laws in every country are really bad. Yeah, the state of copyright legislation is basically what I creates all these issues and worries of "IP stealing" because copyright is kind ...
