Does this mean Oblivion on OpenMW is in the works? ;)

openmw.cfg?

EDIT:

Preferences != Preference

I think there are two places, In the root folder of the OpenMW installation you place in Applications.

and

$HOME/Library/Preferences/openmw

Try reinstalling the game if you can't find the folder.

You should also start the game and save.

Let us know if reinstallation works.

Only path to screenshot, saves & OpenCS projects changed in one of recent releases. Configs reside in ~/Library/Preferences/openmw and you must launch app at least once before they appear.
