digitalmars.D.announce - Windows binaries for OpenMW

Hi again guys.

I've just released the newest version of OpenMW, which now complete support for
Windows! You
can get the windows binaries here:

http://downloads.sourceforge.net/openmw/openmw-0.3-win32_with_ogre.zip (29M)

If you already have all the OGRE DLLs, you can get away with a much smaller

http://downloads.sourceforge.net/openmw/openmw-0.3-win32_no_ogre.zip (802K)

Other downloads (including sources) can be found on the home page:


So, this means that OpenMW now runs on Windows, Linux, FreeBSD (partially
supported) and
hopefully soon on Linux64.

Conspicuously missing from the list is Mac OS X. If there are any Mac users
here who are up to the
challenge, I'd be more than happy to help. I don't believe there are any "show
obstacles for a Mac port. OpenMW should compile with gdcmac, and I think all
the dependencies
have working Mac versions.

To reiterate my last post, OpenMW is an attempt to reimplement Morrowind using
only open
source software. It's written (almost) completely in D, and interfaces with C++
libraries like OGRE and
OIS. There's more info at the home page: http://openmw.snaptoad.com/


PS: There's an SVN repository up and running at sourceforge. If you want to
play with the latest
sources, you can check it out with:

svn co https://openmw.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/openmw/trunk openmw
