Re: Two bug reports on reddit

Yes, it's been sitting on the bugtracker for years. scrawl would prefer the current OpenMW behavior unless someone submits an acceptable solution. I don't like it, but to say it renders OpenMW completely useless is just crazy to me. I guess some players feel very strongly about the Lady.

Re: CPU and Single Core Implications

That would work, if someone wants to work on a mod specific to/for OpenMW, that's fine. OpenMW can even recommend it, blog about it and even display a link in the launcher if needed, that too is also fine. If OpenMW developers want to work on the project, that too is fine. That already sounds like ...

Re: OpenMW 0.44.0

For the water shader we could change the behavior from emitting a ripple particle (current behavior) to sending info to the shader which would then render the ripples with the same function it renders the rain ripples, i.e. using what we already have, only the ripple would be bigger. It would also ...

Re: CPU and Single Core Implications

Hmm, I guess that depends on what "fixing" an asset actually means, like when scrawl mentioned it here: https://forum.openmw.org/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=4207&p=48137#p48137 Your reply there was a good question, one that went unanswered. Others spring to mind: is fixing the vanilla assets the way scrawl'...

Re: CPU and Single Core Implications

@AnyOldName After years browsing his forum and Facebook, I conclude that Boris is blunt, no-nonsense and has sometimes lost patience with people too easily or unnecessarily, but I wouldn't call him a bad person. It's been some time since I've seen him less than civil with other users, and he is reas...

Re: CPU and Single Core Implications

Well, you can't just throw a bigger GPU at draw calls can you? As Lagahan's video demonstrated, not even a GTX 1080ti can keep OpenMW with only a modest distance increase above 60 in the problem areas today. But I accept your point that physics is still a problem for weak CPUs; I've only done testin...

Re: CPU and Single Core Implications

@psi29a, maybe I just don't know enough about how the profiler or game logic works, but I'm not so sure that's the case anymore - at least in vanilla gameplay. I decided to do some testing, perched in the air above Seyda Neen, Ebonheart and Sadrith Mora. I took screenshots looking up, looking down, ...

Re: CPU and Single Core Implications

Probably not from me, or at least I can't think of any ATM; apart from Vulkan, which would be a very big undertaking. There was some talk of a vulkan-based successor to OpenSceneGraph, but not much seems to have happened on that front yet. Really? Some of the ideas in your OpenMW Trello sounded goo...

Re: CPU and Single Core Implications

https://imgur.com/BYSa95w https://imgur.com/Mu3RF4u The FPS is exactly 60 here, are you sure VSync is not enabled? Yes, I have a 60hz monitor, so that's all I need. Well, that and I was fed up with my GPU squealing every time I loaded OpenMW and hit 1000fps on the title screen. For now, my dream is...
