It won't let me log in now... I put in my username and pass, and it kicks me back to the login screen.

EDIT: Nevermind!
EDIT EDIT: Post made. I just copy/pasted the changelog, it's a little cryptic...

omwlauncher.exe :

"OGRE EXCEPTION(7:InternalErrorException): Could not load dynamic library .\RenderSystem_Direct3D9. System Error: The specified module could not be found.
in DynLib::load at ..\..\OgreMain\src\OgreDynLib.cpp (line 91)"

openmw.exe:

Did this forget to include?

That is definitely not what a release posting should look like. We can't throw something that technical at an ordinary end user, especially since several of these items are misleading if you read them without having any technical background. Sorry, but could you take this posting down please and write a proper one?

I assume this is the windows binary package? Looks broken indeed. Maybe just a configuration issue. But it needs to be addressed.

Actually, considering that the Windows package doesn't seem to work out of the box, I am taking the release post down now.

Here is the original text (not sure if you have a copy inside WordPress):
I'm proud to announce that OpenMW 0.11.1 is now released! Please find release packages on the Google Code page.

Please note that with the loss of our Linux builder, no Linux package is available. Linux users can download the source and build the release themselves. If you have Debian packaging experience and would like to help out, please let us know!

Debugging:
openmw.exe:
d3dx9_43.dll not found
First thing to check: Is the file there at all? If it is, does OpenMW without the launcher work?

I do not find d3dx9_43.dll, in openmw-0.11.1-win32.7z, hopefully it's this simple to fix. Also that is the result from opening openmw.exe.

*sigh* We need to fully automate the packaging process for the next release. With so many manual tasks it is really no wonder that always someone forgets something.

btw. it is easy to test, if this is just a missing file. If you still have the previous release you should be able to simply copy over the file. AFAIK there was no OGRE version switching between 0.10 and 0.11.

0.10.0 has "D3DX9_42.dll" by the looks of it, but it works when renamed.

Right. Somehow I read that as an OGRE problem instead of a DirectX problem. Anyway, we should use the proper DLL for the fixed package.
