Re: Microsoft Buys Github for $7.5 Billion

You should read more carefully; I outright dare to proclaim; If OpenMW would use DirectX exclusively we would have OpenSkyrim already. Where exactly did I imply to use DirectX to progress to OpenSkyrim on my own ? I did not imply that I would re-implement the OSG part, I made that clear multiple ti...

Re: Microsoft Buys Github for $7.5 Billion

There are mods for Vanilla MW not running on OpenMW, due to missing binary compatibility, that's what I am addressing here. If you're talking about lack of MWSE compatibility in OpenMW, I don't see why that needs to be addressed by a Windows-only fork. You could just have a cross-platform fork with...

Re: Microsoft Buys Github for $7.5 Billion

It may split into another direction, that's okay though. It's an open source project after all ? Of course no one is going to stop you, but we can still debate the wisdom of the direction. If some developers find it useful, they will catch up, especially after showing some candy on youtube (Windows...

Re: Microsoft Buys Github for $7.5 Billion

Well I started working on it. It would be Windows only. It's simply a response to the harsh building environment on Windows, an evolutionary process adapting to the environment. One has to do the job, each dependency I bring down means less hassle to compile OpenMW for new Windows native developers...

Re: Microsoft Buys Github for $7.5 Billion

Jesus Tapdancing Christ you guys are paranoid AF. This thread is the biggest facepalm I've ever seen. Holy shit, it's like reading a Tumblr meltdown. Calm down and write some code, and stop being such fear-mongering, community-splintering Software Justice Warriors. I thought you wanted to get some ...

Why has scrawl vanished from GitHub?

Right now, the OpenMW contributors page looks like this: https://i.imgur.com/7wB0UAi.png I get a 404 error when trying to open up scrawl's GitHub profile : https://i.imgur.com/ByY9Jbl.png When I look at comments he has left on pull requests, like on this one , he shows up as the "ghost" account: htt...

Re: OpenMW 0.44.0

(or maybe the OSG mailing list if I can get Robert to avoid hurling insults at me for breaking a rule which the forum interface didn't tell me about) Can you create a new account and post with it as if nothing ever happened? My understanding is that Robert doesn't need you to use your real name, bu...

Re: Post 1.0 and tes3mp

I feel like there are a lot of difficult considerations in a situation like this. On one hand, my main priority has been to not distract OpenMW's development in any way, as requested by Zini himself : My main concern is still the same. Dealing with MP at this stage in any way will eat man power that...

Re: "Side-Quests" Sub-forum request

I'm wondering if couldn't re-purpose the TES3MP section for this purpose. Once TES3MP merges back into OpenMW proper, then the sub-forum would vanish anyway (also be merged in). Could we just expand the context to be Bethesda related? Including forks of OpenMW for Oblivion, Skyrim, FO3/NV/4 etc... ...

Re: Post 1.0 Planning Update

First off, the starting point for any conversation should be unconditional and utmost respect for Zini. Here is someone who took what was then a completely dead project and sacrificed 8 years of his life on turning it into one of the most impressive open source engine recreations of all time. Withou...
