[2.1] Why is OgrePlanarReflections.dll mandatory?

Post by spookyboo » Sun Apr 01, 2018 6:54 pm

I've updated to an March 8 commit, but my application crashed. Cause was that OgrePlanarReflections.dll could not be loaded. Apparently this dll is mandatory, but why is it a separate dll instead of including this functionality in OgreMain.dll?

HlmsPbs depends on it, hence the DLL problem.

However it's not mandatory. You can build Ogre disabling OGRE_BUILD_COMPONENT_PLANAR_REFLECTIONS from CMake and thus forget about it.
