OpenMW is an open-source open-world RPG game engine that supports playing Morrowind.



Coverity Scan Build Status pipeline status

OpenMW is an open-source game engine that supports playing Morrowind by Bethesda Softworks. You need to own the game for OpenMW to play Morrowind.

OpenMW also comes with OpenMW-CS, a replacement for Bethesda's Construction Set.

Current Status

The main quests in Morrowind, Tribunal and Bloodmoon are all completable. Some issues with side quests are to be expected (but rare). Check the bug tracker for a list of issues we need to resolve before the "1.0" release. Even before the "1.0" release however, OpenMW boasts some new features, such as improved graphics and user interfaces.

Pre-existing modifications created for the original Morrowind engine can be hit-and-miss. The OpenMW script compiler performs more thorough error-checking than Morrowind does, meaning that a mod created for Morrowind may not necessarily run in OpenMW. Some mods also rely on quirky behaviour or engine bugs in order to work. We are considering such compatibility issues on a case-by-case basis - in some cases adding a workaround to OpenMW may be feasible, in other cases fixing the mod will be the only option. If you know of any mods that work or don't work, feel free to add them to the Mod status wiki page.

Getting Started

The data path

The data path tells OpenMW where to find your Morrowind files. If you run the launcher, OpenMW should be able to pick up the location of these files on its own, if both Morrowind and OpenMW are installed properly (installing Morrowind under WINE is considered a proper install).

  • Shadows


    Scrawl suggested I actually make a PR for this so that it's easier to keep track of while the last few things are sorted out.

    Current issues (that I can think of):


    • [x] ~~I've not decided which way to make the sky not receive shadows is best ( versus Scrawl likes method two and I trust his judgement above my own.
    • [x] The minimap needs shadows turning off.
    • [x] The character preview needs shadows turning off.
    • [x] Interiors need shadows to not be cast by walls etc. (as they use a 'fake' light source which is blocked everywhere)
    • [x] Settings need to be changeable by users instead of hardcoded.
    • [x] Description of settings needs adding to the documentation
    • [x] Turning on shadows should ~~potentially somehow warn users that they might get issues with shaders off unless~~ force shaders on, but maybe the documentation should suggest they want to do this
    • [x] Assorted parameter tuning to make things look as good as possible.
    • [x] Move as much as possible out of shadermanager.cpp
    • [x] Separate MWShadow into two classes - a shadow technique class based directly on osgShadow::ViewDependentShadowMap and a shadow manager class handling interaction with the rest of the engine.
    • [x] ~~Work out why some Linux users are seeing issues that I'm not, and fix the problem.~~ (This wasn't Linux-specific after all, and was just that distant land was on and broke things.)
    • [x] Ensure that shadow map projection keeps shadow map texels roughly 1:1 with screen pixels.
      • [x] Fix this when due to perspective errors.
      • [x] Fix this when due to a high viewing distance.
      • [x] Fix this when due to ~~similar light and camera angles~~ that wasn't the issue shadow maps being set up to cover non-existent objects under the ground.
        • [x] Stop that fix from breaking first person meshes.
        • [x] Stop that fix from sometimes making shadows disappear from near to the camera when the closest thing to the camera is terrain, not an object.
      • [x] Fix this when due to similar light and camera angles as this issue seems to have ~~reappeared~~ never actually been solved?
        • [x] See how easily this can be fixed by messing around with Cascading Shadow Maps.
        • [x] Implement a maintainable and configurable implementation of Cascading Shadow Maps.
    • [x] Ensure distant terrain causes no issues with the ComputeLightSpaceBounds visitor (which I'm not 100% sure is ever doing its job properly or we'd not have issues when increasing view distance but leaving distant terrain off... unless it's the same water-has-a-huge-bounding-sphere issue that means we can't do bounding volume based traversals).
    • [x] Sort out excessive light space perspective transformation effect with RenderLeafTraverser<RenderLeafBounds>.
      • [x] Stop distant terrain screwing up the ratio calculation.
      • [x] ~~Work out what's going on with this screenshot. The nearest shadow map (red) is excessively distorted, removing detail from the tree on the left.~~ I didn't work out what was going wrong, but I fixed this by accident.
    • [x] Resolve this issue
    • [x] Fix this (yet) again but for ~~OSG 3.6~~ maybe not OSG 3.6 [email protected]'s mad computer which has issues no one else has reported.~~ Not just akortunov's computer ~~absolutely ridiculous viewing distances.~~ Fixed the viewing distance issue ~~yet another reason.~~ the CLSB visitor giving erroneous results & the ConvexHull thing not considering shadow casters outside of the viewing frustum.
    • [x] Fix disappearing first-person meshes. Video in
    • [x] Fix wavy Balmora banners breaking things.
    • [x] ~~Investigate issue 1 in this post: ~~Solve issue where OSG's computed far plane is nearer than the most distant geometry.~~ The computed far plane was fine all along. Solve distant (relatively speaking) shadows disappearing due to erroneous clipping.
    • [x] Fix stateset weirdness.
      • [x] ~~Work out if there's a reason @akortunov had minimap and character preview issues after I fixed them for other people and if the magic fix that shouldn't have worked with CSM is reliable and identifiable.~~ No one else has reported anything, so hopefully this is fine.
      • [x] ~~Investigate and fix this unholy abomination: The person who reported this can no logner replicate it, so I'm going to assume I've fixed it by fixing something else.
      • [x] Work out the cause of and then get rid of messages about an invalid OpenGL state.
    • [x] Fix depth precision issues.
      • [x] Reduce Peter Panning without increasing flicker on thin meshes like leaves and ferns.
      • [x] Reduce flicker on thin meshes like leaves and ferns without increasing Peter Panning.
      • [x] Fix evil flicker on a bunch of things (especially with CSM and uniform/log ratio at near 1.0 and a ridiculous viewing distance). Video in ~~The root cause is all shadow maps sharing the same near/far planes so the near shadow map has basically no depth resolution.~~ ~~The actual root cause is that the terrain paging system regards all shadow cameras as maximally distant, so serves up the same single whole-of-Morrowind TerrainDrawable for each of them, and that forces all shadow maps to use the same near/far planes so the near shadow map has basically no depth resolution. This issue can be avoided by disabling terrain shadows, which are basically garbage anyway and will be until the issue is resolved. Attempts to do so have lead to weird crashes, so this is being backburnered for now.~~ The real actual cause was that the shadow map near plane was too far from the things receiving shadows. Using depth clamping to move it closer without preventing things outside the viewing frustum casting shadows has sorted this out.
      • [x] Use normal-offset shadow mapping to try and reduce flickering with much less peter panning.
    • [x] Adjust the alpha test such that invisible actors cannot cast a shadow.
    • [x] Fix animated things being culled for no reason Specifically, it seems that the direct parents of RigGeometries are getting falsely culled sometimes, but other times it's a more complex issue that I won't go into unless someone asked. Copying the bounds from a RigGeometry to its children (which contain the actual mesh) fixed the issue, though.
    • [x] Solve yet another issue with indoor shadows not being everywhere they should be. Investigation ~~suggests this is another LiSPSM issue.~~ shows this is my ConvexHull::extendTowardsNegativeZ() function failing in common edge cases and the provided ConvexHull::clip(osg::Plane) function failing in edge cases made common by the extendTowardsNegativeZ function's introduction.
    • [x] More shadows being gone: When I went to test this, I encountered an issue and fixed it, but I'm not 100% sure if it was the same one. Either way, shadow maps were being used exclusively even for regions that hadn't been considered their responsibility during their cull traversal, so that was fixed by telling the shader about it.
    • [x] Degarbagify terrain shadows. The terrain paging system regards shadow cameras as maximally distant, so serves up a single whole-of-Morrowind TerrainDrawable, which is far too low quality to let all but the largest mountains cast any shadows.
    • [x] Fix colorMode issue (erroneously described as full object shadow pop-ins here:
    • [x] Fix shadows being gone from a set of steps: Technically, this is just really bad Peter Panning caused by a huge polygon offset, so it might not be fixable, per se.
    • [x] Surprisingly, another missing shadows bug:

      Some strange behavior at extreme sunset angles. Note the area roughly where the soldiers are as the camera moves around.

      That doesn't look like it's supposed to happen. Can I get a save game right there along with your settings (not just shadow settings as stuff like view distance makes a difference, too).

      Save File Settings.cfg I'll add that I could not reproduce this on older build artifacts.

    • [x] Incompatibility with the water shader and disabled shadows. (Note: I can't reproduce this).

      Turning off shadows appears to break the water shader. (shadows off) (shadows on)

      That's bad. Can you get me an APITrace of it being broken, please? There should be a thread somewhere explaining how. Maybe testing with an artefact from before normal offset shadows got merged, too, as that's the only thing I've done recently that might have broken it, and I'd have expected someone to have reported this already if it's been broken for a long time.

      I'll see if I can figure out APITrace. For now I can say it doesn't break like this on my pre-normal offset artifacts. Apparently I'd already fixed this by the time someone else reported it, which is why no one else could reproduce it. Good job, me, on wasting a bunch of time hunting something that was already dead.

    • [x] Weird glow on the bottom of things at night.
    • [x] Threading issue with debug HUD frustum geometry. Either double-buffer it or, as it's only there during debugging, make it dynamic so OSG handles the threading (and potentially makes the whole next frame stall while waiting for it).


    • [x] Improve the culling polytope used when allow shadow map overlap is enabled so performance doesn't fall linearly as more shadow maps are added.
    • [x] Investigate this: User unable to reproduce
    • [ ] At night shadows need to be tweaked in some way if anyone other than me starts complaining about them (as another fake light source is used at night, too).
      • [ ] Maybe the position of the light source should follow one of the moons.
      • [ ] Maybe the diffuse component of the light source should be reduced and the ambient one increased.
    • [x] Investigate disabling lighting calculations when rendering the shadow map for a speed boost.
    • [x] Investigate disabling the light manager for shadow map rendering as there's no point working out which lights have the most effect on which objects or sending lights to the GPU when we're ignoring them in the shader.
    • [ ] Consider using a big PCF filter as an option to soften shadows and/or make undersampling look less bad.
      • [ ] PCSS is probably the only good option for soft shadows as everything else involves blurring the parts of shadows that need to be hard.
    • [ ] Consider potential systems to avoid wasting shadow map space on distant stuff.
      • [ ] Maybe a heuristic in QuadTreeWorld based on maximum steepness in a cell and the angle of the sun in the sky which affects the ComputeLightSpaceBounds visitor.
      • [ ] Maybe just a boring maximum shadow map distance setting.
      • [ ] As distant statics don't exist yet, there's no good way to theorise about the ideal solution for these and if it's just going to be as simple as having a distant statics shadows setting.
      • [ ] Maybe see if there's a way to make terrain shadows separate for ECLD cells and terrain paging (distant) cells.
    • [x] Sort out excessive light space perspective transformation effect with RenderLeafTraverser<RenderLeafBounds>.
      • [ ] Suppress unsolvable issues by finding the highest value for the minimum lispsm near far ratio setting which doesn't produce artefacts. Users can help with this, and may find playing with the values at the bottom of shadow.hpp in this branch useful. Remember that before telling me that a value is safe, it needs to work (meaning not look worse than a lower value) both with and without the CLSB applied (the thing that automatically toggles), with and without a high view distance, with and without distant terrain, with and without split shadow maps (look at the end bit of the terrain fragment shader if not using exactly three), in first and third-person view, and in various combinations of these settings. MOVED FROM BLOCKERS TO NON-BLOCKERS
    • [x] Move common shadow shader code into a shader header.
    • [ ] Fix 360° screenshots.
    • [ ] Fix shadows being in the wrong place in the screenshots embedded in saves.
    • [ ] See if MGE XE does something more interesting with interior shadows that I can copy.
    • [x] Investigate the performance cost of doing a different thing for one light on a range of systems to work out if Mesa's optimiser is bad or if I just expect too much from shader optimisers. Patch here:

    Maybe unrelated to shadows

    • [ ] Intermittent OpenGL errors (which don't show up in APITrace etc. but give the message glCallList failed because (depending on the operation) a referenced binding point is empty; a referenced name is not the name of an object; or the given name is otherwise not valid to this operation (GL_INVALID_VALUE) when caught by KHR_DEBUG). Note: These errors may be because of a regression in OSG 3.6.x and may also happen on master-branch OpenMW - JDGBOLT's issue reports are from a build with a bunch of ongoing PRs and unreleased OSG builds.

    Want to tell me how well this works on your machine? I'll need screenshots (ideally with the debug hud turned on), a description of your shadow settings and maybe a coc target and definitely to know whether distant terrain is on.

    Testing both with and without this patch (including with and without shadows enabled) on a range of systems might be helpful to me. I know it makes a difference on Mesa, and no difference with AMD's and Nvidia's proprietary Windows drivers, but don't know for other situations.

  • Grass instancing

    Grass instancing

    An alternative to #3010. Opened to have build artefacts to test the feature and compare performance with paging PR. Existing settings:

    enabled = true
    density = 0.5
    min chunk size = 0.5

    A main idea - instead of merging grass instances to large shapes draw the same shape many times without uploading the same data every time. Since all instances of the same shape use the same transformations, we need to move, scale and rotate every instance via vertex shader. It allows to decrease CPU and RAM usage compared to paging, but causes higher GPU usage due to additional calculations in shaders.

    Note that roundcover objects can not cast shadows since shadows system is not aware of any transformantions in the vertex shader. Can be fixed in follow-up PR, but such shadows will cause a really large performance drop. Probably it would better to use port-processing shaders (e.g. SSAO) instead of real-time shadows for groundcover.

    In my testing instancing is a bit slower than paging (it has higher GPU usage, but lower Draw and Cull, but my setup is GPU-limited). An advantage of instancing is that it uses less RAM (roughly near 100MB in my testing), also cell transitions are faster since OpenMW does not need to load a lot of instances and then merge them to batches. This behaviour is fully expected since the main purpose of instancing is to reduce CPU usage at the cost of additional GPU overhead (more complex shaders and an overhead to bind per-vertex data).

  • Use recastnavigation for pathfinding (#2229)

    Use recastnavigation for pathfinding (#2229)

    Solves #2229.

    Should replace

    To build use recastnavigation from repository.

    Tasks and decisions to be done:

    • [x] When build NavMesh? On cell preload and cell load in background.
    • [x] Load Navigator configuration from settings.cfg.
    • [x] Use tiles to build navmesh `. Allows actors to start find path faster. Possibly to do in parallel. Allows caching.
    • [x] Visualize NavMesh. togglenavmesh command.
    • [x] Visualize actors paths. toggleactorspaths command.
    • [x] Split RecastMesh into tiles. Reduces time to build single navmesh tile.
    • [x] Limit number of tiles to add to NavMesh. Important when number of loaded cells more than 9. There is a physical limit in recastnavigation how much polygons and tiles could be in navmesh. Polygon identifier contains tile number and polygon number inside tile 22 bits total. Now 10 bits used for tile and 12 for polygon. Could be increased if recastnavigation would use 64 bits identifiers (need a lot of changes).
    • [x] Support changing collision shapes. Navmesh updates when object changed or transformed.
      • [x] Animated
      • [x] Transformed (doors)
    • [x] Support avoided areas (task #1724)
    • [x] Support swim (water). Navmesh surface with specific water flag. Possible to forbid actors to swim:
      • [x] Exterior cells
      • [x] Interior cells
    • [ ] Support doors. Allow actors to find path through closed doors:
      • [x] without teleports
      • [ ] with teleports (who can use it?)
    • [ ] Use different navmesh with half extents for different actors:
      • [ ] Exterior cells (takes too much time to build navmesh, need optimization)
      • [x] Interior cells
    • [ ] Different settings for interior and exterior cells. There is a restrictions for that. Tile size depends on cell size. Navmesh can't contain tiles with different sizes, so different navmeshes are required to use different cell size for interior and exterior. Probably will not be possible to make off mesh connections for teleports (needs research).
    • [x] Documentation for settings
      • [x] Comment for each option in settings-default.cfg file
      • [x] docs/source/reference/modding/settings/navigator.rst document
    • [x] Cache NavMesh tiles data
      • [x] Select key generation approach:
        • ~~Use btCollisionShape user pointer to store original memory address or counter value. Small size. Possible collisions. Surrogate key.~~
        • [x] Use RecastMesh binary data. Requires ordered build of RecastMesh. Large size. Persistent key.
      • [x] Select limit cache size approach:
        • [x] Limit by total NavMeshData size. Allows to limit by used memory. Too large objects possible could not fit cache size in some specific cases.
        • ~~Limit by number of items. May lead to large variance of used memory.~~
      • [x] Select cache item replacement method:
        • ~~Replace least recently used item. Requires external lifetime handling of a NavMeshData value.~~

  • Separate grass handling

    Separate grass handling

    This PR handles grass objects from enabled plugins separately from other objects.

    Also there is an another implementation, which is based on ObjectPaging (unfortunately, grass animations do not work).

    Summary of changes:

    1. Attach grass nodes directly to cell node, without creating a cellref and animation object just for every grass shape. As a result, grass almost does not affect cell loading speed, does not have collisions and does not block objects (e.g. corpses).
    2. Use a separate mask for grass nodes, so grass objects do not cast shadows (but still receive them) and do not present in reflections. It allows to use grass when shadows and/or object reflections are enabled.
    3. Implemented a grass density setting. A density algorithm is deterministic, so the grass should be in the same place every time when the same density is used.
    4. Implemented a grass rendering distance setting. Grass objects near rendering border fade away. Allows to increase performance and avoid pop-ins. Requires an AlphaProperty for groundcover objects.
    5. Grass is animated via separate shader - it takes in account wind speed from openmw.cfg and player's position to emulate stomping.

    It is recommended to test this PR with the Aesthesia Groundcover.

    An example of settings:

    enabled = true
    fade start = 0.75
    density = 0.3
    distance = 6144
    animation = true

    Known limitations:

    1. There is no batching system, so large grass density still significally increases CPU loading and may lead to noticable performance drops on Draw-limited setups.
    2. MGE uses custom lighting shaders (some grass replacers even use custom shaders), so some MGE-specific grass mods may do not work as intended.
    3. Some mods may add groundcover objects, which are not supposed to be animated (stones, mushrooms, etc). Such objects also have no alpha property, so fading does not work for them too.
    4. Grass is rendered/animated only for active grid.


    The main question - can we use such system, or our current approach is to do nothing and wait until a skilled OpenGL developer implements a procedure-generated grass for us for free?

  • Movement solver changes/fixes

    Movement solver changes/fixes

    This fixes several major problems with the current movement solver, which make it a lot harder to get stuck and much less common that you can't jump in certain locations unless you stand still.

    No changelog additions yet and not ready to merge. Some of these changes can cause performance problems and bring some other bugs to attention (like capsules breaking some vanilla level design), so it shouldn't get merged until enough people look at it.

    If you look at this, though, please test it, too, and compare its behavior ingame directly to current master. The problems it fixes are monumental.

    This is certainly still not a perfect movement solver, but it's a lot better than what OpenMW has right now.

    Problems fixed:

    • Not mapping against what's hit unless the stair code successfully runs
    • Lack of safety margin making it unsafe to do the above
    • Problem with how "don't skid up steep slopes" worked, preventing jumping while running into walls
    • Some bad interactions between jumping and stairstepping
    • Getting stuck in simple acute crevices, including some hanging sloped walls and things like the double stairs in the ald'ruhn mage's guild (complex acute crevices still get stuck)
    • The stair code freaking out in obscure cases involving steep slopes

    Test cases:

    • The bottom of the stair meshes in interior vivec areas (test these with cylinders and rounded cylinders too, see actor.cpp)
    • The beds in the ald'ruhn mage's guild (their sides are steep slopes)
    • The bedside tables in the ald'ruhn mage's guild (their sides are VERY steep slopes)
    • The hanging sloped walls in the ald'ruhn mage's guild
    • The big plant pot thing near the entrance of the ald'ruhn mage's guild
    • Most walls anywhere
    • The double stairs in the ald'ruhn mage's guild (falling between the railings, not between them where you could always fit and get stuck) (note: in vanilla you can just walk between them for some reason)
    • Some of the pillars in the ald'ruhn mage's guild walls, where they intersect with the wall at an obtuse angle (as far as player collision is concerned)
    • A place in the ald'ruhn mage's guild (near a merchant) where two tall pots meet eachother at an obtuse angle (as far as player collision is concerned) (try jumping)

    Things that might need adjustment:

    • ~~~There's a hack that ensures the stairs code works correctly when the player is jumping and moving upwards, but maybe the stairs code shouldn't work in this case at all.~~~
    • There's a hack that makes slopes act like walls in some cases, to keep the character from stuttering and unable to jump when like walking into the sides of beds and tables in ald'ruhn, or some rocks in the wilderness. It doesn't help in some cases.

    [WIP] OSG PSSM shadow For SunLight

    Parallel Split Shadow Mapping (fitted for Sun-outdoor- not for other sources unless very far) test it against any osg version it should work please give detailed feedbacks(with osg version) if it fails (but no crashlog it's too big)


    arbitrary choices made:

    • shadowing op in shading is a COLout=mix(ambiantbias*COLin,COLin,shadowedratio), replace that if you're not happy
    • shadowing shading is controlled with 2 extra StatSet components provided by shadowmanager ( a static unshadowed uniform and a shadowed stateset to reuse shadowmaps)


    • strange behavior at night fixed by disabling backface culling : terrain was culled by shadowcams
    • flickering shadows was related to strange numeric problem(sorry to misslead you with my previous mt or multipass implication) fixed removing "Transform on LightSource" pssm feature
    • Indoor sun disable

    known bugs:

  • add Octree Occlusion Queries feature

    add Octree Occlusion Queries feature

    A cheap way to improve render performance when there's lot of hidden objects... Include a lazy optimisation for shadow: I narrow the far plane of the view with OQ results splitting cull traversal in 3 traversal:

    1. for OQ (just to submit queries)
    2. for not occluded (that give me the narrow frustum with the nearest far plane possible)
    3. for the rest (don't care the far plane of this frustum) 2&3 may be merged but include terrain in far plane computation can be of some use for fine tuning


    • You can check drawcharge of the oq compromise with stats (it's part of the few quads)
    • Indoor is treated as outdoor...(differents octree parameter -for other scene scale-should be used for indoor, but it wouldn't be very usefull as indoor dont lag)
    • octree occlusion culling is hierarchic so keep max BVH OQ level count low for more reactivity SOLVED
    • bug still exists with hierarchical terrain+oq+shadow culling (some are drawn even if occluded when include terrain in far plane computation is true) SOLVED
    • little bug with ingame shadows settings (can't enable it if shaders disabled) but switching shadow on/off ingame is so usefull that i let the bug be. Video (outdated): Demo video Capture d’écran de 2019-06-11 20-20-04 reference:

  • WIP: New Movement Solver Fixes (Do not merge yet)

    WIP: New Movement Solver Fixes (Do not merge yet)

    This is a manual rewrite of #1794 based on a much more recent version of master. See #1794 for a description of what changes this PR does.

    This is the PR you want to use if you want to test how the movement solver fixes interact with double-precision bullet or threaded/async movement solving.

    I intend to rebase this branch to logically split everything up into single stable commits or squash everything into a single commit so that it doesn't interfere with bisecting, so do not merge it yet.

    These changes require double-precision Bullet. Otherwise interacting with certain objects becomes glitchy/unstable because single precision Bullet sucks.

    Needs testing

  • Weapon sheathing

    Weapon sheathing

    Implements feature #4673. Related topic is here. Here are WIP animations for this feature:

    Basic idea: add some new bones to humanoid skeleton and attach weapons/quivers/scabbards/etc to these bones.

    Data format is compatible with the Weapon Sheathing mod, so you can use meshes from this mod. xbase_anim_sh.nif is required, other files are optional.

    Sheathed models for now are separate meshes with _sh suffix. If there is no scabbard for current weapon mesh, an engine will show only holstered weapon. Also scabbards and quivers do not have enchanting glow (but arrows in quiver do).

    The feature is disabled by default. You should enable it in config file:

    [Game] weapon sheathing = true use additional anim sources = true

    Now this feature supports:

    1. Weapon holstering. Holstered weapons also has glow when enchanted.
    2. Scabbards for any type of weapon excepts of throwing. Scabbard itself does not have a glow.
    3. Quivers for bows and crossbows. Quivers itself do not have a glow, but arrows have when enchanted. Count and type of rendered arrows depends on type and count of equipped arrows.


    1. I had to rework autoequipping
    2. Shield holstering is not supported for now - there is a lot of issues with resources (we will need to add new animation groups, there is a lot of clipping with movement animations, issues with mods that use pseudo-shields, etc).

  • Add testing options to the Settings page

    Add testing options to the Settings page

    Implements #4345, providing a GUI for the three most commonly used testing options. A number of new users have indicated that command line parameters and editing files in the data folders are cumbersome. This provides a user-friendly alternative.

    testing options

    Additionally, the "Start default character at" field grays out if the "Skip menu and generate default character" setting is unchecked, meaning that there is no confusion over why characters aren't appearing at that location. Note that the cell itself itself is preserved.

    start default character at disabled

    And if the "Start default character at" field is blank, the words "default cell" appear as placeholder text to clarify what will happen.

    start default character at default cell

    The startup script field can be edited with either text or with the "Browse…" button.

    (Note that both the starting cell field and the startup script field are unfortunately affected by Bug #3911, causing double characters when typing on macOS).

  • openmw-0.47.0(Nov 5, 2021)

    Another year of busy and fruitful development lies behind us -- and the OpenMW team is proud to announce the release of version 0.47.0 of our open-source engine! Grab it from our Downloads Page for all supported operating systems.

    With over 180 solved issues and a plethora of new features, this release is on par with the enormous 0.46.0 release we had last year. Brace yourself for object paging which allows OpenMW to finally display distant statics, proper support for groundcover mods, an improved lighting system, more efficient and robust physics, the new, optional over-the-shoulder camera, and much, much more!

    In addition, countless bugs have been solved -- both for the vanilla game and for a variety of mods to ensure even better mod compatibility in the new version.

    Check out the release announcement video by the hacking Atahualpa and the slashing johnnyhostile, and see below for the full list of changes. There are also a German release video and a German changelog available.

    Known Issues:

    • On macOS, launching OpenMW from OpenMW-CS requires '' and '' to be siblings
    • Lighting of spellcasting particles looks dull
    • Pathfinding during the "Tribunal" expansion quest "Infidelities" is broken and the journal may not get updated because Taren Andoren hasn't yet reached his target spot; as a workaround, waiting for one hour will allow Taren to reach his target spot and the journal to be correctly updated
    • Performance of enchanted ranged weapons (e.g., darts) isn't as good as other projectiles' performance

  • openmw-0.46.0(Jun 15, 2020)

    After over a year of development, the OpenMW team is proud to announce the release of version 0.46.0! Grab it from our Downloads Page ( for all operating systems. This release, potentially the largest ever since the move to OpenSceneGraph, finally reintroduces the long-awaited real-time shadows and also introduces a new improved navigation mesh-based AI pathfinding system based on recastnavigation library, among tons of other improvements.

    Mod compatibility has been significantly improved in this release, and you can expect dozens of mods that worked poorly previously to become playable starting with this version.

    Check out the release video ( by the splendiferous johnnyhostile and see below for the full list of changes. The corresponding OpenMW-CS release video is planned to follow soon.

    One more thing: one of our major contributors, Capostrophic, has recently started a Patreon AnyOldName3 (our resident Master of Shadows) also has a Patreon and psi29a, OpenMW’s new project lead also has a Patreon. So consider supporting them if you want to help OpenMW grow. Other contributors accept donations as well: you can find links to their Patreon pages in our FAQ. Don’t forget to support the software that helps make this all possible: OpenSceneGraph, OpenAL-Soft and SDL2 to name a few.

    • On macOS, launching OpenMW from OpenMW-CS requires and to be siblings
    • Shadows and the new navigation system are not yet perfect and they will get further tuning and refining - particularly in the area of performance when it comes to the shadows - in the subsequent releases

  • openmw-0.29.0(Mar 12, 2014)

    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!

This is possible by expanding the horizontal resolution by 96 pixels, increasing resolution from 256x224 to 352x224. Since the original SNES does not have this resolution, the emulator focused into high definition mods bsnes-hd must be used.
