0.14 Release for OpenMW. New Awesome Features. Fixes for several issues. TERRAIN! WATER!

Posted by pchan3 on May 8th, 2012

The OpenMW team is proud to announce the release of version 0.14.0! Release packages for Ubuntu are now available via our Launchpad PPA. Release packages for other platforms are available on our Download page. This release brings many notable features, including terrain and water rendering!

A video highlighting many of the new changes in this release made by our very own WeirdSexy.

Please note:

  • There is a regression in the Launcher in this release, from which you will observe that the rendering subsystem will default to OpenGL regardless of what was previously selected. This will be fixed in the next release. This can be overcome by setting the rendering system explicitly from the launcher each time, or running the OpenMW binary directly from the command line, which will select the renderer that has been set in your config file.
  • There is a known issue where a crash may occur underwater with the underwater effect enabled on OS X

Change Log:

  • Fix for meshes rendering with the wrong orientation
  • Fix for better grabbing of small objects
  • Fix to enable toggling of collision rendering
