Re: Need major help MAC install troubles.

To get OpenMW to run on a Mac you first need to buy the Morrowind GOTY edition from Amazon. $7.00 USD. Completely false. The Steam version works just fine. I have never used steamcmd myself, but the documentation mentions a 'force_install_dir' option which is used to determine where the application...

Re: Is it possible to commercially release a game on OpenMW?

indeed. but the given example does not contradict what I said. the binary might be sold. source has to be provided to anyone that bought the binary. in the given example, the friend that bought the binary (and has the source) would not have been allowed to share the binary. thus there would be no n...

Re: Is it possible to commercially release a game on OpenMW?

See https://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl-faq.html#RedistributedBinariesGetSource My friend got a GPL-covered binary with an offer to supply source, and made a copy for me. Can I use the offer myself to obtain the source? Yes, you can. The offer must be open to everyone who has a copy of the binary that ...

Re: Is it possible to commercially release a game on OpenMW?

interestingly enough, you do not have to provide the modified sources openly to everyone, but only to your paying customers. so it would not be necessary to provide online download links. it would be quite sufficient to give private links to paying customers or provide the sources to them via physi...

Re: Crash when loading

Give it enough time, and it will trickle down to stable. ;) I imagine you know this, but packages do not "trickle" into stable; the more appropriate analogy would be "flood", whenever a new version of Debian is released and everything that used to be in testing suddenly goes into stable (and everyt...

Re: Crash when loading

As I quoted from the official Debian repository: No. Don't even bother trying. If you do it anyway, you get to keep all the pieces, and we get to laugh at you. You can, however, backport them to stable yourself which is explained below. I already broken too many times in my life a Linux by doing th...

Re: Crash when loading

The Debian openmw package has moved from experimental into unstable: https://packages.debian.org/sid/openmw You will no longer be getting updates to openmw from experimental, so you should replace it with unstable and update because version 0.36.0 is older than the version available from unstable (0...

Re: OpenSceneGraph port now playable

Do you want bug reports against the osg branch yet, or should that wait until it's more complete? I gave it a spin and noticed several things that seemed off, but I'm not sure they are actual bugs or just the result of some missing subsystem which has yet to be ported. For example: The sun was up in...

Re: Workshop Paid Mods

My ball, my rules. The problem lies in defining what constitutes your ball, as opposed to mine. You have a ball. You sell me the ball. Is it still your ball? Do you still get to decide what I can do with the ball? You make a painting. You sell me the painting. Is it still your painting? Do you stil...

Re: Workshop Paid Mods

IP is an important legal concept You can't wish IP away You are both missing the point. "Intellectual property" tries to lump together a number of loosely related legal terms, such as copyright, trademarks, and patents, into a single concept. The ideas covered by "intellectual property" are differe...
