Anything related to PR, release planning and any other non-technical idea how to move the project forward should be discussed here.

WRT to mac "too many open files" - ulimit will increase the file handle limit for the process you runs it in and its children. If you then launch OpenMW from the finder it likely won't be affected.
Try this instead: https://synthomat.de/blog/2020/01/incre ... -on-macos/

Thanks to eddie5 for the link to the macOS file limit solution. The method described there (using a .plist file) did not work for me on OS 11.4, but manually entering "sudo launchctl limit maxfiles 65536" in the terminal works and I'm now able to run the mac RC with a full set of mods. This terminal command has to be re-entered any time the computer is restarted, and it still seems odd for OpenMW to require this when the many dozens of other applications and games run on this computer do not, but it is nice to have a usable workaround.

The macOS RC6 has worked for me so far in about 30 minutes of testing. First impression was that load times are noticeably longer than with 0.46, including launching the app itself, saved games, and loading new areas. Maybe that is the price of progress. Second impression was that the game otherwise seems to run more smoothly, with fewer frame rate dips. I can't rule out placebo effect, but slowdowns are usually fairly noticeable on this aging MacBook.

Thanks as always to the amazing team working on this.

You're finally on Windows 10 now, aren't you, so we have to take this seriously now. 😤

It seems like the Windows build was made in RelWithDebInfo mode and not Release mode. Is that intentional?

Done in RelWithDebInfo or done in Release with the flags to generate PDB values set manually but not the flags that disable optimisations so we can diagnose crash dumps from the release like I've been requesting?

It's not about the PDBs (which are there). The command prompt fires up when you launch OpenMW, which isn't supposed to happen if the main binary isn't built as a console application, and it's not as long as it's built in Release mode. Since the game isn't obviously painfully slow I can only suspect it's built in RelWithDebInfo mode.
