Also, I met up with Raevol once at Comic Con International in San Diego, he's a cool dude. 8-)
Can confirm, also Greendogo is a champ. :D

It's really really minor, but I gave a talk on OpenMW here: https://www.socallinuxexpo.org/scale12x ... penmw.html

Unfortunately it didn't get recorded. :( But I probably have the slides laying around somewhere. I've been following the project since 2008/2009, but the post history on the forum is probably better than my memory.

Thank you everyone for the input! Especially the dates and links so I can dig around a bit more myself.

Nicolay didn't have anything directly to do with that. I bought the domain and maintained it for a few years while in college. This was necessary after some discussion on the Google Groups/email discussions, as neither GG nor the Beth forums were suitable for us. When I vanished Lukasz took up the mantle and after a while I set up my domain to redirect to his.
What made their forums unsuitable? Heavy-handed moderators? Lack of flexibility? Legal troubles?

A timeline seems great to compile for people. It's been a long decade+, and it would help people appreciate the work that has gone into the project by people over the years.
Agreed, that's a large reason I'd like to do this. I think a lot of people have this assumption that it's been the same group of people working on it diligently this whole time, with the same goal in mind, which is obviously not the case.

Just wanted to pipe in and say, as someone who has only known about the project since 0.38.0, I find the history shared so far pretty interesting.
Same! (although I think I was around 0.34) I'm already enjoying this more than I thought I would.

How cool! Too bad about the recording, but if you do find those slides that would be amazing! We've done other talks I think right? I seem to recall someone doing one around when I started here on the forums.

Keep 'em comin'!

Don't forget about WeirdSexy and his videos! I remember when Slaughterfish were attacking NPCs in Seyda Neen and other NPCs jumping to their demise off the Silt Strider platform. Geez that was a long time ago.

I'd love to have all three of them make a cameo on the 1.0 release video.

Worst-case scenario, we could run Lyrebird on some old OpenMW videos and fake their voices.

I found 'em, PM me your email? Or, is there a way we can host them on the website for posterity? @psi29a ?

Lol I like how in your debrief you say your talk was maybe a bit history heavy. Little did you know that's exactly what I'd be looking for :D
