Re: OpenMW code, bug tracker, and wiki are now on GitLab!

I think the default sorting for issues is by most recently updated, which is useless because of updates to the migration. Is it possible to change that? I think this will sort itself out given time, as the migrated issues get "native" GL updates and the old stuff without updates drift to the bottom...

Re: Elder Scrolls: VI

One thing that has always distinguished The Elder Scrolls from other fantasy worlds in my mind has been that, like the real world, there isn't always an exact answer to what is true, especially in terms of religion. Did Tiber Septim ascend to godhood? Are the moons the corpse of Lorkhan? Are there ...

Re: Elder Scrolls: VI

With this kind of view, inconsistencies in lore can be interpreted in many ways and it totally allows divergence of opinions. As long as BGS don't force it too afar. I have an issue with taking a series' lore like that. It basically makes it all meaningless to discuss or think about; what I think o...

Re: Elder Scrolls: VI

TES series have always been more about lore than overarching storylines and even that lore isn't consistent between installments. Pretty sure I've read somewhere that Todd Howard said they never know what their next game in the series will be until they start working on it. I think he meant in a ge...

Re: The Future of OpenMW Scripting

So I guess that would mean that the translator will run once and create an output file? I imagine the translator would be a separate component. OpenMW would use it when loading content files (whenever it finds an oldscript record, it automatically passes it through to get a newscript source which i...

Re: Elder Scrolls: VI

I'd be very surprised if they try to use a dragon break excuse to say every Skyrim ending is canon. As it was, the idea was created because they hadn't considered what to do about a canon ending from Daggerfall, and the BGS team saw a significant overhaul between it and Morrowind (in particular, bot...

Re: New Font Implementation

A general non-game-specific font could make sense to include, something that looks okay (i.e. readable) regardless of the game and is guaranteed to be there in case something goes wrong with the game-specific fonts. Although I'd avoid things like the Daedric font since they're obviously TES-specific...

Re: Heads up...

I have a question. With GitHub/Redmine, I would get emails for PR activity (opened/closed messages, responses, etc) even if I didn't participate in it, while for bugs I'd only get messages if I created the issue or was assigned to it. Is there some way to set up GitLab's notifications similarly? It ...

Re: exclamation marks

An exclamation mark like that means a mesh wasn't found, so falls back to that obnoxiously large thing to get your attention. It would be caused by either a broken Morrowind installation (missing vanilla resources), or an incorrectly installed mod (missing mod resources).

Re: Mac Visual Issues

To be clear, "gamma" is the output voltage control of your monitor or television. It's the non-linear response curve of the display's intensity. Images are given an inverse gamma so that it can be passed directly to the screen, where the curves cancel out and the image displays correctly. Changing t...
