at least until other games are made with it
The other Elderscrolls games will never be made compatible with OpenMW. There are far too many differences between the engine requirements of these games. It won't be a post-1.0 consideration either. This had been decided before Zini even came on board, and he and Scrawl reiterated it since.

But there is some work on Oblivion support.

Right. That's what the other engine re-implementations are for. I meant brand-new games that are made with OpenMW. I thought that was part of the plan; to make OpenMW a base for new games.

Ha, my mistake. I'm so used to seeing calls for Oblivion and Skyrin I read your comment as:

Hi all im looking to contributing to this specifically to the opengl renderer.

Is daggerfall currently the only game displaying anything?

DarkXL displays the start screen and we finally got it able to click on Play, Settings and Exit... Exit works as expected (hahaha) but the rest lead to a blank screen. Likely the wiring up of AngelScript and Engine still needs to be done.

Daggerfall renders "normally" in soft8 renderer, but gives us a black and white in opengl... and we don't know know why. If you could help us fix that... you know, show us colour and render textures... that would be wonderful. Chris and I are a bit out of our depths when it comes to stuff like OSG, OpenGL, Vulkan...

Speaking of Vulkan... if ANYONE wants to help create a Vulkan renderer... go for it! :D

As for OpenGL, I believe there are tests to see that your GPU can support OpenGL 2.1, that is the only requirement I think.

I'll get around to making a status update video.

just looking at the current API usage this is fixed pipline with no programmable shaders. So 2.X should not be a hard requirement.

Im trying to run DarkXL, i just get the black screen. I dumped the GOB next to the binary. I see the conf can specify the paths, but that never was created.

You need to copy the contents of resources/ into your build directory...

so for example build/DarkXL/UI_Title.as

Take a look at the README.md file, there is a configuration file too for setting resolution and etc.
