OpenMW 0.46.0 Released!

Post by psi29a » 15 Jun 2020, 09:09

After over a year of development, the OpenMW team is proud to announce the release of version 0.46.0! Grab it from our Downloads Page for all supported operating systems. This release, potentially the largest ever since the move to OpenSceneGraph, finally reintroduces the long-awaited real-time shadows and also introduces a new improved navigation mesh-based AI pathfinding system based on recastnavigation library, among tons of other improvements.

Mod compatibility has been significantly improved in this release, and you can expect dozens of mods that worked poorly previously to become playable starting with this version.

Check out the release video by the splendiferous johnnyhostile and see below for the full list of changes. The corresponding OpenMW-CS release video is planned to follow soon.

One more thing: one of our major contributors, Capostrophic, has recently started a Patreon. AnyOldName3, our resident Master of Shadows, and psi29a, OpenMW’s new project lead, are also on Patreon. So consider supporting them if you want to help OpenMW grow. Other contributors accept donations as well: you can find links to their Patreon pages in our FAQ. Don’t forget to support the software that helps make this all possible: OpenSceneGraph, OpenAL-Soft and SDL2 to name a few.

Known Issues:
  • To use generic Linux binaries, Qt4 and libpng12 must be installed on your system
  • On macOS, launching OpenMW from OpenMW-CS requires OpenMW.app and OpenMW-CS.app to be siblings
  • Shadows and the new navigation system are not yet perfect and they will get further tuning and refining - particularly in the area of performance when it comes to the shadows - in the subsequent releases

found a possible bug.

Seems that when I am on a building or any place that the guards can run to me then cannot reach me but are right under me when they reach that point they turn and run away but state a "run away" saying like I cannot take it anymore, or let me live, or even help guards.

Wasn't that already the case when your character turned invisible or used a chameleon effect? I thought that was kind of a safety measurement to prevent players from exploiting high ground or levitation attacks.

Update: Just checked the original game and it uses the same "mechanic", although enemies sometimes stop below you and do nothing.

Awesome! Thanks for the hard work!



I have looked at the GitLab issues and on the forum, but not found a reason for the following:
To use generic Linux binaries, Qt4 and libpng12 must be installed on your system
Are these not needed if built from source (i.e., latest versions are fine)?

Thanks!
Sincerely,
Klorax

I never noticed before because they would always pile up and stay right underneath me. Now they run up to me and then turn and run. Will try and capture video.
