The OpenMW team is proud to announce the release of version 0.29.0! Grab it from our Downloads Page for all operating systems. This release includes the first implementation of the Save/Load feature, which catapults OpenMW closer to being completely playable. Please bear in mind that the save file format is not yet finalized and we cannot guarantee forward compatibility of save files until OpenMW 1.0. Some aspects of the game state, such as player controls being enabled/disabled, weather, some creature state including all magic (also used by NPCs), movement of objects between cells (except for the player), and fog of war are not currently saved. Other new features include more combat AI, blocking, area magic, and disease. OpenMW is becoming a hazardous place to be!

Re: OpenMW release thread

Greetings,

It's been way too long since our last update. OpenMW is alive and has had another release (two actually). We're getting closer all the time to version 1.0. If you have experience optimizing code or want to help us build our Qt based editor, we'd love to gain additional experienced support. A user on our forums, Sandstranger, has been experimenting with porting OpenMW over to android. He's got the game running with terrible frame rates, but it's interesting days nonetheless. Sandstranger's working on touch based controls currently. In the future it could be quite interesting to run OpenMW on Android tv, fire tv, nvidia shield, etc. Stop by the OpenMW forum to find out more or to get involved. You'll find videos and full change logs for the last two releases below.

I just wrote an >>Ogre wiki article<< detailing how Ogre has helped us achieve our visions.

Whoever is in charge of updating this thread must be sleeping :) . OpenMW 0.34 has been released a while ago and 0.35 will be released soon.

Re: OpenMW thread [Version 0.33 Release Video]

Post by scrawl »

I have an announcement that may be a shock to some of you, but please read on for more detailed insight.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ogre3D is the rendering engine used by OpenMW since our very first release. Now, the OpenMW team is announcing the move away from this engine.

Over the course of our alpha versions, Ogre3D has proven extremely useful, enabling rapid development. Thanks to Ogre3D, you can already play a more or less complete game of Morrowind in OpenMW, today, and that is an incredible feat in and of itself.

However, to get OpenMW into a polished state and to add the last few missing features, we have difficult tasks ahead of us that would either require creating a fork of Ogre3D that behaves the way we need it to, or switch to a more suitable engine. After much discussion, we have settled on the second option.

Why switch?

There isn't one particular show-stopper, but rather the culmination of many different issues.

One blocker for our 1.0 release is the poor framerate compared to vanilla Morrowind. This comes down to scene management and render API bottlenecks in the Ogre3D 1.x series, which are well understood by the Ogre3D team and have since been addressed in the 2.x series. The original plan was to port OpenMW to use Ogre3D 2.x, which is a big undertaking since the programming interface changes are significant. However, we have some fundamental concerns about this port:
  • Tag points: We are using an Ogre3D feature called "Tag Points" to stitch together the various parts of Morrowind's segmented bodies. This feature is no longer supported in the 2.x series, so we would have to implement complicated workarounds.
  • OpenGL3 requirement: The Ogre3D 2.1 branch has dropped support for OpenGL2 hardware. Even though OpenMW was never meant to run on hardware that originally ran Morrowind, we concluded that it is still too early to drop OpenGL2 support, as it would affect a significant portion of our users.
  • Material system: Ogre 2.1 features a redesigned material system written with AZDO (Approaching Zero Driver Overhead) optimizations in mind, but at the cost of making custom materials difficult to write. We will be doing that extensively in OpenMW, especially considering user-authored modifications, so we would rather have a more flexible and easier to use material system.
On top of these concerns with the latest Ogre3D versions, we've also had some longstanding issues:
  • Resource system: Ogre3D forces the use of a global resource manager, but we need one resource manager per document in OpenCS. Another problem is that all resources are expected to have a unique name, which leads to some unnecessary work on our side, and could rarely cause user-defined resources to conflict with internal resources. This is also an issue well understood by the Ogre3D team, and a "Resource System Redesign" project addressing these points has been started in 2013, but is unfortunately not completed yet.
  • Material stencil support: The NIF format used by Morrowind can specify "stencil settings", but the Ogre3D material backend does not support these settings.
  • NPC width scaling: NPCs in Morrowind have a "weight" property, which should be scaling the NPC on its local X-axis. OpenMW currently ignores this property, because the Ogre3D 1.x skeleton system does not support non-uniform scaling.
A new engine

In light of these issues, we've looked around for alternatives and found the OpenSceneGraph, which appears a perfect fit for the features required by Morrowind and OpenMW, while also delivering high performance. We've carefully evaluated all needed features and verified that they can be found in the OSG source code, or can be easily added by a plugin. A detailed roadmap for the port will be posted in the near future, and updated regularly so you can follow along the progress.

One notable difference is OpenSceneGraph supporting OpenGL only. Ogre3D having inbuilt support for OpenGL and DirectX may be considered one of its strong points. In an ideal world this would result in greater choice for the user while requiring no extra effort from the OpenMW team. Unfortunately this is not quite true; writing shaders does not work in a render system agnostic way. In addition to that, we have found some OpenMW bugs only manifesting themselves when the Direct3D backend is used. So we are in fact happy about this change, as we do not have the manpower to maintain support for two different rendering systems, and most of our developers are working on Linux and thus unable to test the Direct3D renderer anyway.

Pre-emptive FAQ

Q: How long will the switch take?

The good news is that Ogre3D is a rendering engine and we're only using it as such. The OpenMW code is structured using different subsystems, and this change will, for the most part, affect only the "mwrender" subsystem. Rendering code makes up roughly 8% of our codebase.

Q: What will happen with OpenMW using OGRE in the meantime? Further development (new features), maintenance/fixes only, complete obsoletion?

We will continue developing the OGRE branch as usual, with new features and bugfixes, so long as the OSG port is still in development. We know that OpenMW already has lots of players despite its alpha state, so this is very important for us.

Q: What about the different OpenMW platforms (Linux, Windows, Mac OS X, Android)?

We will continue to support all these platforms.

Q: The gallery on the OpenSceneGraph website looks really basic. If this engine is so great, why are there no fancy games made with it?

In terms of features, OpenSceneGraph is every bit as powerful (or even more powerful in some aspects) as Ogre3D, so it surprised us to see there are not many games made with it. OSG founder Robert Osfield has his own theory on why this may be the case:
As a general note about Games and OSG vs Ogre, I suspect it's partly
down the roots of each project and the culture that grew up around it.
OSG grew from the vis-sim world and over the years grew into a
general purpose and highly portable scene graph library, with it's
community coming form the professional simulator, large scale
visualization, VR and scientific markets. Whereas Ogre from the start
was graphics API for Games, it too though can be used for more things
than games but and culturally games looks to have remained it's
heartland.
Q: I am worried about Direct3D support being dropped, because I get much higher framerates with the Direct3D renderer in OpenMW compared to the OpenGL renderer.

We are aware of this performance difference and know that it can be attributed to the poorly implemented OpenGL renderer in Ogre3D 1.x. Valve has shown that a proper OpenGL renderer can be every bit as fast as Direct3D, or even faster.

Final thank you note

We owe a great deal to Ogre3D and hope to have made up for it with the numerous patches we've contributed.

We want to thank all Ogre3D contributors for their great work, everyone on the Ogre3D forums for all the support and encouragement we've gotten from there, and a special thanks to Kojack for helping us debug a DDS texture issue.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Personal note

This doesn't mean I'm gone from the community. Ogre3D has been a huge part of my life and I will not give it up overnight. I will still stop by the forums occasionally and provide help where I can. Also I am still using Ogre3D in contracted projects, and hopefully I can use it again in a personal project one day.

Thanks again to everyone and see you soon.

:D :D :D

recently, following some post i've visited OpenSceneGraph and was very much impressed...very proffesional code base...OSG looks like a good choise...

its true that Ogre 2.x is taking a whole new path, it seams like ogre is heading AAA and had to give up some flex in order to achieve that...
porting to 2.x way of doing things may be harder than porting to OSG so its understandable
adding this to the fact that you have your own artistic needs and code and want to support older hardware...

as for OpenSceneGraph being hyped only as a sim-engine, openMW OSG port can really make a difference here...

just 2 questions:
1)will there be any implication on mygui ogre support?
2)regarding your MIT terrain plugin, videoPlugin and shiny...will you still maintain this with ogre?
otherwise maybe we can create a repo on "Addons repositories" to be maintained by the community...

sorry my mistake, i was under the impression that myGui development is attached to openMW but i guess its the other way around...

@scrawl
I have to say I am little surprised, but very interested in how you get on. It would be interesting if you could report back your experiences in OSG so we can have a better understanding of what should be concentrated on in Ogre.

As for the material system, I kind of feel your pain, but I am currently putting it down to my lack of understanding of the system. There are a couple of features that are missing from a high level point of view but its early days. I and hopefully the Ogre team would be interested in the areas you think it is lacking, especially as you are the author of Shiny :)

Anyway I wish you guys the best of luck, it might be interesting to see an engine with both OSG & Ogre front ends!

Interestingly, I briefly toyed with the idea of porting Ogitor to OpenSG, not OpenSceneGraph, because it is even faster than OSG.
The odds in favor of OpenSceneGraph over OpenSG is the bigger community, though. OSG actually has a real forum.
However, now that dark_sylinc has taken Ogre in a new and brutal direction, and because we would have to change our name to OSGitor, we've decided to stay with the beast. :)

Good wind to the OpenMW project! :)

I wonder if there is a standalone example that inits, loads and display terrain with OpenMW's terrain engine?

Also, how hard would it be to modify it to work with OGRE 2.1?

All you need to do is implement a storage class, like this one:
https://github.com/OpenMW/openmw/blob/m ... torage.hpp
I have created a stand-a-lone project here, but need to create the custom storage class:
https://bitbucket.org/jacmoe/shinyterrainmw
I will probably be using libnoise - once I figure out how the terrain data is organized.
Someone who is a better programmer than me will probably beat me to that, but the OpenMW terrain component is well made and self-contained so it should be fairly straight forward to implement. ;)
