Improved File Format for omwaddon files

I don't know what the current plans for the future of the omwaddon file format are, but I had an idea for a new file format to make mod creation/interaction simpler. Now, I'm not as familiar with how esps/omwaddons work as I'd like to be, but current esp/omwaddon files cause a number of problems whe...

Re: Nightlies on Arch Linux AUR

It's already in the package name, in that every '-git' package in the AUR behaves like this (as well as '-svn', '-hg' etc.). It's also addressed on the AUR page of the wiki here and here . Could it be clearer? Probably, but the AUR isn't supported out of the box anyway, and you're expected to read t...

Re: Portmod - Mod Manager

Interesting. Frankly most of my knowledge is second-hand and anecdotal, and I've noticed that speed improvements have coincided with increased RAM on new machines, the widespread use of SSDs, and Windows including a few tricks such as hybrid boot and compressed memory, which together could probably ...

Re: Nightlies on Arch Linux AUR

It's the latest nightly, taken directly from the github repo. The build file is old since it doesn't need to be updated unless dependencies change. The AUR uses the version at the time of packaging as the version for VCS-based packages. line 18 of the PKGBUILD: source=('git://github.com/openmw/openm...

Re: Portmod - Mod Manager

I think if they divert engineers to making 7 open-source it'll make it less likely that they'll make the latest version open-source before they get bored of the concept. 7 has got a lot more crap code in it than 10, so it's better to push for a still-maintained version to be opened instead. You're ...

Re: Portmod - Mod Manager

Thanks, it's useful to know that the installer can also be run headless (I don't get why such software that takes command line arguments doesn't also provide a help message of any sort). Unfortunately there isn't a direct download, and it appears that Chocolatey is running into the same problem from...

Re: Portmod - Mod Manager

I've just released portmod 2.0_alpha6, which notably includes full Windows support. Thanks goes to walkingwounded for setting me down that road. I've slowly fixed a variety of Windows problems over the past couple months, starting with with what walkingwounded found, followed by what I found using W...

Re: Automate or Expedite Normal Map Conversion

Here's the link to one of the scripts: https://gist.github.com/jrivany/0665e26 ... b8f93cc07a
Be advised that pyffi (required by the script) is broken on python 3.7 and newer at the moment.

Re: Portmod - Mod Manager

Well, Linux python, but the aim is for it to work on all platforms (python >= 3.6 is required). Your issue appears to be one with the sandbox, meaning it affects any mod, hence why all mods fail to install, and is due to an oversight on my part. Basically I assumed the existence of several parts of ...
