Re: Recent Negativity Regarding OpenMW

Jesus fucking Christ, someone just shut this thread down. We’ve literally discussed all of these things in detail and recently. Forcing the devs to repeat themselves on the forums rather than spend time on coding is a literal time drain as well as a huge demotivator. Please search the forums for “PR...

New Moderators

Hi All,

Who all are our new moderators at this point? Who should we PM about spam, trolling, infrastructure bugs, etc? I used to just message lgro about stuff, but figured it would be good to know. There appears to be a spam account in the documentation subforum.

Thanks!

Not so distant land: we're not the only ones!

I always thought people around here seemed to like view distances a bit lower than average. Turns out there are more of us! https://www.reddit.com/r/Morrowind/comments/a2z41i/best_distant_land_distance_survey/ Personally, I'd like to have the max view on a very clear day be up to like 5 or 6, but ha...

Re: OpenMW 0.45.0

Confirmed the Windows 64-bit build runs. I only ran around for about 2 min to confirm something to compare to the shadow branch, so def not thorough. Will update when I get another chance to get into it a little more. Update: Was able to mess around for about an hour tonight and didn't notice anythi...

Re: The only way to replace Vanilla Engine (IMHO)

Not a dev, but I believe I am accurately representing them in the following. The answer to the “vanilla+MCP+MGE XE+MWSE+mods” features question is almost universally: we either support or plan to support all features provided by those tools, but the implementation will probably not be identical as w...

Re: Shadows

Perhaps I came off more critical than I intended, because we are in complete agreement. I’ve been playing Assassins Creed and their shadows don’t hold up too well under inspection and that’s Ubisoft. If AAA studios can’t get them perfect, then there should be no expectation that we will. Unfortunate...

Re: Shadows

Blurring everything at the edges is an option, but it's not one I like. Shadow map resolution actually has a very, very small performance impact compared to what you might expect, so turning it up is almost always an option if shadows are too pixelated. Try the shadows on an OGRE build of OpenMW (e...

Re: Native Animated Containers and Graphics Herbalism support

I'm very much of the opinion we should use the "both, and" method. Even if post-1.0 we can attach multiple scripts, I still think a native option is necessary. The benefits of ease of use cannot be overstated. Attaching scripts to several objects gets incredibly tedious and just increases the likeli...

Re: How to API Trace

Good info, thanks AnyOldName3! Although I suspect I’ll be able to use it to help in the future. If anyone else has any suggestions, feel free to post them here!

How to API Trace

I've been trying to help AnyOldName3 diagnose a problem with the shadows branch and had to run an APITrace for him. As I'm sure many besides me also don't know how to run one, here's a short guide on how to do so. If anyone wants to add to the wiki, feel free, but it's pretty low on my list of prior...
