Video settings no longer in game?

Post by clocknova » 25 Oct 2017, 22:43

I just noticed that most of the video settings can no longer be altered from within the game, and now can only be changed by altering the .cfg file. At what point were the video settings removed from the internal game options?

Which settings are we specifically talking about? Are you sure they were ingame before?

Yes. I used to be able to adjust things like water shaders and such from within the game. Those settings are no longer there.

They're still there and never were removed. Which OpenMW version/revision are you using? Are you even using OpenMW and not Morrowind.exe? :D

Going to the Options menu in the game offers only the Prefs, Audio, and Controls tabs. Graphics settings are gone. I was using 0.42, but I'm currently using 0.43 RC1 for macOS.

It's there for me on Windows in the 0.42 release, the latest master branch, and the 0.43 RC builds.

Figured it out. The mod "Bigger Vanilla Font" apparently increased the font size enough to push the Video tab out of the window. Or something like that, anyway. Anyone know a better way to increase the game's default font size? My eyes aren't what they used to be.

EDIT:
I just realized that I can resize the settings window to make the Graphics tab reappear with the larger font installed. Now I feel silly. :oops:
