CPU and Single Core Implications

To my understanding most of the engine in OpenMW uses single-core and can't multi-core. I currently have an Intel Core i7 2600k and it runs at 3.40GHZ. The best CPU that I can see on the market for it's performance is 4.70GHZ. What percentage of performance difference would be gained from playing Op...

Re: Scalability & Stability

viewing distance = 35924
exterior cell load distance = 1

With these settings I get a jittery 25-35 fps outdoors. How do I properly read the F3 menus to determine where the bottleneck is? Is there documentations I have overlooked that explains the bars moving about?

Re: Scalability & Stability

Be aware that "exterior cell load distance" is the radius for the number of fully loaded and active cells, excluding the one the player is in. So with the default 1, that gives a diameter of 3, so there's 3x3 (9) cells loaded around the player. With your change to 3, that's a diameter of 7, so ther...

Scalability & Stability

Hi, I am Xenuria and I am going to be posting some documentation showing the rather sharp difference in performance between the following scenarios. OpenMW 0.42.0 on Max Settings Vanilla View Distance OpenMW 0.42.0 on Max Settings Non-Vanilla View Distance/ Distant land and cells loaded. https://www...

Re: OpenMW Nightly builds

Forgive my ignorance but I am confused by the distinction between OpenMW Nightly Builds and the OpenSceneGraph (OSG) Builds and forks.

If I want performance on a high end gaming rig I want OSG right? And does OSG install over top of an existing OpenMW Install?

Re: Map Options

As you say OpenMW isn't multi-core yet. Forgive my ignorance but wouldn't choosing an engine that is natively multi-core and 64-bit be a starting point? Not something you work towards after already having most of the game working on an engine? No two engines are the same. Trying to fit game data fr...

Re: Map Options

I had this vision in my head of OpenMW in it's final form being able to render the entire game world with ease or at least solid 60 fps outdoors with all the latest visual mods. This is highly unlikely to happen at any time with any engine. I don't know that much about the exact technical aspects i...

Re: Map Options

I am starting to get concerned by the overall progress and likely hood of these map features ever coming out. OpenMW is a massive step up from the vanilla engine and plays way smoother but it's still not perfect. It still dosn't take full 64-bit advantage of my 1080 graphics card or my SSD. I had th...

I played like that for a while, the map is still very precise, but without the arrow it does not look like a GPS anymore.
I don't understand.
