Re: Grey out read dialogue topics

It is probably possible to endlessly conjecture hypothetical arguments in favor of the pedantic form of correctness. It's not really hypothetical. Two different NPCs saying the same thing because their text replacements happen to match is a thing that happens. And I don't doubt there being cases wh...

Re: Grey out read dialogue topics

Relatedly, how does it deal with response scripts with branching results, or text replacements that alter the dialog, but is still technically the same dialog record? Or dialog text that is the same, but is from a different record with a different response script? It doesn't make sense to me to say ...

Re: Intro cinematic not running?

Did the credits and title videos play? How did you install the game, and what version of it? IIRC, if it's a preexisting vanilla install of the CD/DVD version, the video files are left on the disk so OpenMW can't find them and they won't play. You have to copy the files from the CD to the right dire...

Re: Changing Character Appearance

That's... utterly horrid! :shock: It also doesn't make sense... resetting stats and wiping spells seems like something that one has to go out of their way to implement. Why can't appearance simply... not affect anything? At least after the character was already created? Because setting up your char...

Re: Morrowind .esm missing

I have downloaded Morrowind through Steam and am trying to run openmw, only openmw is looking for .esm files and Morrowind doesn't use them. Yes it does. Neither is Morrowind located in a folder called Morrowind, is is located in E:\Steam\steamapps\common\Zenimax Online\Launcher Zenimax Online woul...

Re: Better handling of mod conflicts and mod merging

As long as two mods don't modify the same record, then those mods are compatible. This is a fundamental misunderstanding. For any useful definition of "compatible", it is possible for two mods to modify two different records, and be incompatible; that is, when used together they unbalance the game ...

What of this would I put in quotes to change the sound device to the second one?
You wouldn't use quotes. Set the device line to:

Code: Select all

device = OpenAL Soft on CRT (NVIDIA High Definition Audio)
and it should select that second one.

Is there a way to get HRTF working on Windows?
Ensure the device is configured as Headphones in Windows (not speakers, or virtual surround sound), and is set to a sane sample rate like 48khz or 44.1khz. With OpenAL Soft 1.18 or newer, it should automatically enable HRTF in-game.

Re: feature request finding mod conflict (multiple mod changing same object ID)

At present, to determine that, you have to load each and every file individually in an editor and see if it changes any of the small handful of relevant records. esmtool can list records from a given file with a given name. esmtool dump -n <record name> file_to_test.esp If you have a sane shell, it...
