So can I match versions between the two platforms or is the Android port numbers off?
Also is there a separate repo or download location for the nightlies? This way I can watch the Android builds. Will need to find the pc repo as well as I think they stopped nightlies for the moment.
Sisah doesn't say what versions he uses to make his apk, but I suspect that he builds on the latest ones at the time of build, and it doesn't matter at all, since the difference of several builds can't affect the game's progress. Links to all the apks are in this topic, nightly for Windows here.
Maybe we can get a cadence with PC releases going... And yep I am on that page but the 64bit is failing to download.

On my phone, if you look at the water from above (for example, from a bridge) at a certain angle during rain, the fps drops very much, I just bypassed this by changing "if (rainIntensity > 0.01)" to "if (rainIntensity > 100.0)", also fps drops when the player's water stains appear in the frame. I wonder what causes these fps drops?

To my understanding, the [Cells] section was removed in .47 master/nightlies. So if this build is off of the master then that section should no longer function. That is according to anyOldName3 in my Reddit post in OpenMW .47 video.

Also I have never noticed any difference in reducing the resolution on phone or PC or phone. It seems that the effect would be pronounced if the GPU was maxed out but in the case of OpenMW the CPU is the bottleneck as it has to create the calls for the GPU and it cannot keep up. The resolution in this state would not matter as the CPU will still have to process the same area to send to the CPU and those are not screen size dependant (vertexes and the sort). I could be wrong here but I have never noticed a diff when changing the resolution unless it cuts out parts of the scene that is being rendered. Eg 16x9 would cost more than 4x3 and to enhance that there is less above to render so the 4x3 would show more sky but less area to the left and right, like 16x9, which would contain more cells to process. That is the only time I have seen an increase in FPS. Same with FOV, the narrow it is the higher the FPS.

Removed the ability to change the exterior cell load distance, preload works as before.

Yes, this does not affect the fps much, maybe when you turn on custom shaders and per pixel lighting, the effect will be more significant.

Thanks you guys for the help with slower phones. Is there any way someone could compile a lightfixes.esp thst includes morrowind, expansions, and Tamriel Rebuilt?

So what does preload do for performance?

Reduces loading time during the game, but may slightly decrease maximum fps, because engine in background loads resources of the place to which you are moving (neighboring cell, interior).

So having that set to two would be optimal, unless you have player speed set super high.
