I also have a question concerning feature #1537 Ability to change the grid size from 3x3 to 5x5 (or more with good pc)

https://bugs.openmw.org/issues/1537

is this in the current RC? as I don't understand what this is meant to do? as I don't see any extra options in the view distance menu, or am I missing something? (using windows 64bit RC (DXD9 renderer) if that helps.

thanks in advance.

The option is written in the setting.cfg file.
I didn't try to modify it, but it is here and can be modify

My experiences of using the setting, with an AMD FX-6300 with a Radeon HD 6670 (2GB VRAM) Ubuntu 14.10 64-bit (8GB RAM) - 3 is default, 4 is playable with object shaders disabled, 5 is slow and 10 just flat out refuses to load saves.

I started to test this myself, and got similar results, (but 10 did load for me but NOT recommended) 5 wasn't bad, but in vivec, it was pretty slow, I'm keeping the setting to 4 as well, seems to be OK, but when I move to playing in vivec full time, I might drop it back to 3 again.

intel 4770k
geforce 780 OC edition
16gig of ram

(just for reference)

I think to play with anything above 4, you need a really good rig, especially moving around vivec, (where the performance does lag a little)

edit

I have tested the latest nightly build, and I can confirm that the guild advancement bug is fixed, (I didn't notice the bug at first until I saw it in the bug tracker) but this is now fixed for either the next RC or stable.

What does setting the gridsize to an even number mean? If the gridsize (n) is odd, then n x n cells are loaded with the player in the central cell. If n is even there is no central cell, so then what happens?

We load the central cell and (int)(gridsize/2) additional cells on each side. So 4 would be equivalent to 5. It seems Zini was right that the name of the setting is confusing. I don't have any better idea though.

Pushed more fixes, another round of RCs please.

Update for the launcher stuff: https://gist.github.com/mickeylyle/3b97 ... /revisions

and still waiting to hear if this is still a known issue? I'll just assume it is if no one says anything.:
- Crash when switching from full screen to windowed mode on D3D9

edit: Whoops, sorry, it's still an open issue: https://bugs.openmw.org/issues/1647
Some pirates achieved immortality by great deeds of cruelty or derring-do. Some achieved immortality by amassing great wealth. But the captain had long ago decided that he would, on the whole, prefer to achieve immortality by not dying
