Game crashes upon start

Post by vividgamers20 »

After the game starts and before the main menu loads, it crashes immediately with the following error message:
"Viewing distance is less than near clip"

Please see attached files for clarification.
My OS is Windows 11 Pro.
I didn't encounter this error before with the previous dev build.

That's not a crash - it's telling you what's wrong and then aborting. If you look in your settings.cfg, you'll see that the viewing distance is less than the near clip, like it says, and there's no point OpenMW starting up if that's the case as you won't be able to see anything.

I see, I've increased the viewing distance accordingly in the launcher and that seems to have resolved the issue.
I was just confused about why it would suddenly show up in a new dev build.
Thank you.
