Posted by on

The OpenMW team is proud to announce the release of version 0.32.0! Grab it from our Downloads Page for all operating systems. This is one of the more magical OpenMW releases, bringing the completed implementation of all magic effects as well as NPC AI for casting spells, using potions, etc. in combat. The implementation of mouth movement, eye blinking, and several other NPC AI features breathe more life into NPCs in this release as well. Over 100 issues have been fixed in this release, as we steamroll towards 1.0! The tiresome affairs of real life have prevented our beloved WeirdSexy from creating a video for this release. We wish him the best in everything, and have our fingers crossed that he will work his magic for a 1.0 release video when the time comes! We are looking for someone to take over his role. If you love the Elder Scrolls and like recording videos please introduce yourself and show us a sample of your work on this forum there has even been an outline for a basic video script. It would be a huge help!

Really gj, this is going to be awesome tool for modders in future, with so much of freedom open engine gives. I hope this gonna be the future of new attack animations for morrowind as it is the one thing which makes me stay away from morrowind for years. Watching this engine for long time always putting a lot of trust in this project and when time passes I am more and more confident this gonna be epic. Keep doing this more awesome.

Can I actually play Morrowind missions and all? Is this an engine or is this a game?

I think it's possible to finish the game with this update, but I can't tell for sure.

You need Morrowind to use OpenMW, which is a new engine based on the one for Morrowind. Check the FAQ here:

"Fixed Remesa Othril being hostile to Hlaalu members"
Thank God.

Seriously, the amount of work you put into this is astonishing.
Some bugs you fixed there are quite amusing, by the way.
