OpenMW 0.35.0 Released!

Post by raevol » 16 Feb 2015, 22:43

The OpenMW team is proud to announce the release of version 0.35.0! Grab it from our Downloads Page for all operating systems. This release includes over 100 bug fixes and improvements, and brings our "1.0" release much closer. Some notable features include the beginnings of an ess-Importer command line tool to import save games from vanilla Morrowind, proper handling of the Calm effect, and AI fast-forward functionality. Read the full changelog and bask in the glory of the huge amount of work that has gone into this release... Two more things: several OpenMW utilities have been renamed as of this release, including OpenCS being renamed to OpenMW-CS. And we would really appreciate any feedback on the launcher's Data File selection UI. Enjoy!

Does this update mark the move away from Ogre?

No. The currently mainline of the code (the master branch) is still fully OGRE.

Looks like there may be a file missing from the 0.35 Win64 package. I detected the problem after downloading, installing, and attempting to run the launcher (repeat a second time, because Windows; alas, same results both times). Launcher does not start and pops up a dialog complaining about some sort of ogre-root. I was intrigued, but it was not related to a spirits recipe.

Here's my reproduction of the popup:

Code: Select all

Failed to create the Ogre::Root object

OGRE Exception(7:InternalErrorException): Could not load dynamic library.


System Error : The specified module could not be found.
     in DynLib::load at B:\Programming\Libraries\Ogre\Source\OgreMain\src\OgreDynLib.cpp (line 109)
Before ya'll freak out, this problem has happened before. I think.

Just FYI. Also, since I have a previous installation on the same computer, I copied over D3D9_43.dll and everything worked again.

Huh, I guess I must've misplaced the d3d9_43.dll I've used to package.

I'll just have to grab one of those again and stuff it back into the build I guess.
