Re: OpenMW freezes computer with video

How much ram do you have installed? When your system 'freezes' is the HD light on? It could indicate that you're swapping out to disk when your ram is full. With distant-land enabled on my side, it chews through memory. After wondering around the map a bit, openmw used up to 6.2 GiB of ram. It took...

Re: Hoping someday OpenMW can look this good

Someone found a model format that was open, intended for real-time applications (so loads quickly and has as much stuff as is sensible precomputed) which supported pretty much every feature we needed and had provision for extension a while back. I can't remember what it was called, but I think it m...

Re: Vulkan support

Optional or not, it makes no sense to stop developing an engine to become more graphically advanced because one guy has a 6 year old laptop. I don't see where these complaints are even coming from. My laptop is 6 years old, and on top of that - it is a shitty one. But I still managed to get it to s...

In your case it might be worth trying the change suggested here: https://github.com/OpenMW/openmw/pull/1184

Re: Are Dynamic Shadows Coming Back In a Month or So?

Shadows are eye candy. I'd say go for the shader based variant only.

Re: Are Dynamic Shadows Coming Back In a Month or So?

OSG has a shadow module I think. So theoretically it should be pretty simple. Practically it probably depends on the level of rendering code customization in OpenMW?

Re: 3-8 fps in Sadrith Mora. Physics out the roof

The pathologic case happens when it runs into the ground. At least I think that it is a ground contact due to the normal pointing up. When this happens the direction logic fails, sticks essentially with the same direction. Although I've also seen a variant where it would alternate, normal vector cha...

Re: 3-8 fps in Sadrith Mora. Physics out the roof

The worst case happens when the stepper fails due to ground slope. It will try a wider step, which means 7 casts per step attempt and 7*8+1=57 casts in total.

Re: 3-8 fps in Sadrith Mora. Physics out the roof

It looks like the solver gets stuck because the contact normal from the cast is pointing either up or down.

In this case the direction vector doesn't change, the solver keeps running against the obstacle until all iterations are exhausted.
