Recommended reading to grasp code base?

Post by mattwla » 02 Aug 2017, 00:03

I've read through the wiki, which helped a bit but didn't do much to help with grasping the overall structure of the code base. Stuff like how ESM/ESPs are read, how the classes connect, etc. Are there any good resources I should check out? I've been reading the code base and I'm beginning to grasp it, I'm just wondering if there is a quicker way I don't know about!

Thanks,

If you figure it out, please let us know! I took a stab at this a while ago and gave up in frustration. It's part of our documentation that is severely lacking.

It's incomplete, but maybe it'll help. http://openmw.readthedocs.io/en/openmw- ... index.html
