Re: Main menu Hi Res

There are mods which add a proper widescreen background (including intro video). There is nothing we can do from the engine side. The engine needs a way to know what aspect ratio a background image is supposed to be. As it is now, the engine only has two options: assume/force 4:3, or fill screen. S...

Re: Distant Land: where to next?

I think that's a spambot. That's word-for-word exactly what you said back here in the middle of the first sentence.

Re: Translation Management and Community

The engine will also need to support UTF-8 content files to do it correctly. Currently there's a config setting to interpret content files as being one of a select few code pages (like the original engine data expects), which is less than ideal on its own, but also limits the possible languages/char...

Re: OpenMW with Godot?

Sometime ago i've read that OpenMW probably will not support Vulkan, because replacing OpenGL with it will break compatibility with older hardware and supporting both API will increase maintaining cost (or something like this). And i've thought: why don't use upcoming Godot 4.0, which supports both...

Re: Elder-scrolls IV Oblivion

Maybe he works for Microsoft, and now is too close to Bethesda to safely contribute code?

Re: The Summer in Review: June-July-August 2020

I was referring to permissive licenses, like MIT. Because here's the thing, GPL isn't free, it infects anything it's used in, and has many conditions restricting how it's used. At the same time, permissive licenses allow closed source binary-only releases, to not publish any changes made (there's o...

Re: The Summer in Review: June-July-August 2020

Look I get what you're saying. But I guess it's just a difference in opinion. I'm a fan of licenses like MIT, Apache, BSD, cause of the freedom they offer. I consider GPL to not be a truly free license, due to the fact that it puts restrictions on the use of the GPL-licensed content. There is no "t...

Re: Main menu Hi Res

Note that it'll only work correctly if your screen/window has the same aspect ratio as the image. If they're different, the image will be stretched horizontally or vertically to fill the background. A proper fix would be for the engine to scale the image while maintaining its aspect ratio, which it ...

Re: Application with a new feature: ptmikheev

Do I understand your opinion right that in current form the feature can not be accepted even as optional and disabled by default? It's not my call whether it's accepted or not. I'm just giving my opinion that I think it's the wrong approach to turn the whole body and change target angle, since the ...

Re: Application with a new feature: ptmikheev

At the moment I don't have enough knowledge of openmw internals to turn lower and upper body separately. I think it is possible, but it requires interfering with the animation and definitely would be a much more complicated change. Unfortunately, it might be the only way this feature could work (at...
