Re: Help us plan OpenMW's future

IDA, for example, allows retargetting decompilation from machine code to assembly and from assembly to C, but the result isn't pretty. It will make a best effort but give you things like: variable_467, sub_function_6634 In reality this isn't much more complicated than a really hard, comp-sci sudoku...

Re: mwse coders created something interesting..

Bigger news is that UI in general is being dehardcoded. Mod config menu is a thing too, as a result:
Spoiler: Show
Mod config system itself is all done in Lua, no C needed for any of that.

Re: Help us plan OpenMW's future

$0.02 from someone who uses the crap out of bytecode, while OpenMW ignores it: 100% go for the bytecode. You have two (now three) compilers with different output. mwscript is an ugly bastard where coders complain constantly that they have to do crazy things like compile most scripts in one compiler,...

New line of RCs, these ones built without LTO to see if that helps NullCascade's issue.

32-bit
64-bit
No dice. Still hangs.

Re: The Future of OpenMW Scripting

I've personally never been much of a fan of embedding Lua into projects just because their integration interfaces are a bit annoying to work with, you have to do much more manual work than strictly necessary to set up the bindings against your code and types, but on the other hand the result tends ...

Re: The Future of OpenMW Scripting

Glad to see the project move in this direction. My offer still stands. I want to see OpenMW be less of a headache for modders, and I think if we worked together to make a compatible API it would go a long way. I guess I'll see if that's something you guys are interested in once it comes out of priva...

Re: OpenMW 0.44.0

NullCascade, could you maybe try building up some release binaries using the CI script, with the LTO build flag enabled in the CMake options, see if that still results in the same issue? If those too show the issue then it might be worth looking over doing some gentler optimization - though it'll l...

Re: The Future of OpenMW Scripting

People have added Python and Lua support before. It was never merged. The problem isn't getting people to do the work, it's getting the project to accept it. Python, yes, to see if it could be done. The developer, a friend of mine who is a Debian Developer, did it to see if it was possible, he wasn...

Re: The Future of OpenMW Scripting

If there is so much interest in Lua, one of the Lua proponents could implement Lua bindings(there are numerous binding libs to help with this) and rewrite current script compiler generate Lua bytecode. It shouldn't be too hard given how primitive mw script is. And you'd have something tangible to a...

Re: Morrowind May Modathon Month 2018

condescending and confusing perspective ? oh sorry it was not intended. I gathered those few numbers to give an idea of the following. Communities emerge, grow and inevitably decay over time. So to see an initiative like this, 16 years after launch, giving birth to more mods in a month than new PRs...
