Re: OpenMW 0.45.0

The NSIS installer is not really configurable enough to modify the setup pages themselves, we'd probably have to switch to wix to be able to do more customization in our CMakeList. At the moment, if you want to do anything more than the default installer then it requires modifying CMake itself and w...

Re: OpenMW 0.45.0

I actually looked this up back when I started doing the NSIS packages (After a comment / complaint by a user), and while you're required to provide the GPL to the user to inform them of their rights (like how we do as a LICENSE file in the installation directory), you're at the same time expected to...

Re: OpenMW 0.45.0

The problem is that the license field in the NSIS installer is only designed for showing end-user license agreements that you're required to accept to install the software, which doesn't fit with the GPL which is an open-source license.

Re: OpenMW 0.45.0

FOSDEM.. as in Brussels? And you didn't bother to ping me or pvdk so we can have a drink? :cry: Sadly the FOSDEM weekend was about as fully booked as possible, so I didn't even try to do anything more than run around on the conferences. Actually spent the Friday night hacking together slides for my...

Re: Hey let's switch away from bullet to anything else

Just to throw it out there, nVidia just open sourced PhysX , under the simple BSD-3 license. Should be usable by GPL apps, though I can't say anything about the API or how easy it is to use. PhysX 4.0 came out today, also open source. https://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&px=Open-Source-...

Re: OpenMW’s mb/s data load rate?

Then what was Ace talking about on the previous page? Pre- loading is still loading, the only difference is that it happens in the background during gameplay instead of in its own paused screen. I should've perhaps emphasised the loading part of loading screen more, as it doesn't have to be it's ow...

Re: OpenMW’s mb/s data load rate?

@Ace how on earth are you finding NVMe SSDs cheaper than SATA ones, or, in fact, any flash storage for less than 5 cents a gigabyte? The cheapest I've ever seen is £0.12/GB, and that's already a steal. It's all a matter of scale I think, seeing as the NVMe drives I'm buying are larger than the SSDs...

Re: OpenMW’s mb/s data load rate?

I don't think you'll see much load-time difference between SSD or NVMe drives on OpenMW. Be it now, or 6 years in the future. While it'll certainly be faster than loading from an old rotating drive, even the cheapest of SSDs today will most likely be more than fast enough to hit other limits when it...
