Re: Water Shader turns into a pixelated mess

If you do something wrong with OpenGL on Nvidia hardware and didn't create a debug context, it sometimes tries to guess what you meant to do instead of following the spec and skipping the call and raising an error. There are also several things in OpenGL that are allowed to be implementation-defined...

Re: Can't install Morrowind on my Mac from Steam

You need the ini plus everything in the Data files directory.

Re: Water Shader turns into a pixelated mess

There's more to it than that. We don't think it's everyone using a modern AMD card on Windows, so other factors like specific driver versions or other software on the computer like overlays might come into play. If you're on an EOL OS, it's likely you're also not using the latest driver (it might no...

Re: Can't install Morrowind on my Mac from Steam

Have you definitely checked the two things it says to check (the mode being plain text so it doesn't mess with the quote characters and the file extension being right)? They're the two most likely culprits if you haven't. Otherwise, have you tried restarting Steam? It might be that it only looks for...

Re: Water Shader turns into a pixelated mess

Well stop using Windows 7, then. It's not supported. It might even actually fix the issue if it's something driver-related and the driver component responsible is different on 7 and 10.

Re: Distant Lands and OpenMW

The high-level stuff does exist on the forum, but the intermediate and detailed stuff doesn't. Doing the thinking to determine what that actually would be would be a significant amount of the work, so it would still take a significant amount of time, and it would be much less effective than doing it...

Re: Distant Lands and OpenMW

Unlike Oblivion, Morrowind's statics aren't actually static - a script or console command can remove, move or add them at any time, and there are several parts of the game that rely on that. Anything that runs outside the game is going to have issues with things either being missing or being there w...

Re: Distant Lands and OpenMW

I have a Patreon, and so do a couple of other developers. Even when I was averaging several hours a day on OpenMW, it wasn't bringing in anywhere close to enough to live on. It's certainly nice to have money that otherwise wouldn't be coming in, but very few people make anything more than a bit of e...

Re: Distant Lands and OpenMW

It's one of the things with the highest priority, but it's a big job (especially as the point of OpenMW is to be objectively better than things like MGE XE) and has a lower priority than acquiring money to buy food and stuff, eating and sleeping. We have a manpower shortage, so it's really a case of...

Re: Better grass support

My points are that: Things can be limited by things other than draw calls, even when the symptoms are very similar. If you put in a much faster GPU and find things are no faster, you could also be limited by anything else, such as physics on the CPU. The driver using a lot of CPU time isn't always a...
