motivation
none of the existing viewers were properly updated for 1.11 and/ or were using incompatible licensing (I prefer MIT for OGRECave, so people can freely build upon the stuff there).

Furthermore existing viewers use toolkits that are a PITA to work with (Qt, wxWidgets). Finally I needed a benchmark for the current state of scripting in Ogre.

its just a matter of compiling and packaging stuff - so yes once I have some spare time and boot windows again. These things are just a lot simpler on Linux..

so here comes the initial windows package:
https://github.com/OGRECave/ogre-meshvi ... -win64.zip

as you might have guessed this is not packaged properly, so additionally you will need:
- Python 3.7.2: https://www.python.org/ftp/python/3.7.2 ... -amd64.exe
- Cg: https://developer.nvidia.com/cg-toolkit (alternatively comment out the Cg Plugin)

to run the script, right click the included athene.mesh > "Open With" > (navigate to) > ogre-meshviewer.bat.

As I have no idea how to fix the CWD in windows, you will have to copy the mesh next to the bat file so PATH + resource.cfg sum up.

If you know batch files you probably can help me out here quite a bit.

right click the included athene.mesh > "Open With" > (navigate to) > ogre-meshviewer.bat.
