Im glad for this project. Arena engine never really worked on my pc. So this means one day I might be able to actually play it in this modernized state!
Thanks. Let's hope so. There's still a lot of work to do, but the strategy of 'slow and steady wins the race' has been working well so far.

OpenTESArena 0.9.0 Released!

Hello all, here is another release for my Arena engine. In this version, I added distant land, sky, and space rendering, and the ability to enter and exit palaces. Sorry for not posting the previous release here, but it looks like someone's got my back :) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=erflKPFAIOU ...

Re: OpenTESArena 0.7.0 Released!

Is there a tool out there for extracting art and tiles from TES1? Of course, it's probably planned for the new engine to externalize this data into pngs for modders at some point. Just thinking it would be fun to tinker on this game's art as we wait for the engine to mature. I don't have any tools ...

Re: OpenTESArena 0.7.0 Released!

afritz1, WOW, congrats also to You. A wonderful project! I have so many fond memories of Arena! Thanks. I didn't know what Arena was until 2011-2012, so unfortunately I don't have all the same memories of it as others, but maybe my project will fix that :). The first time I beat Arena was last year...

Re: OpenTESArena 0.7.0 Released!

Please consider revising the "modern" control style or adding an "ultra-modern" option that mimics what is currently possible in dfunity: -locks the crosshair to the center of the screen -looking around doesn't involve clicking, it's what moving the mouse does by default. -swinging a weapon doesn't...

Re: OpenTESArena 0.7.0 Released!

is it really procedurally generated ad infinitum every time you play? Actually no, from what I understand. Every location has its own random seed. Each chunk of wilderness is 64x64 blocks and each wilderness is 64x64 chunks. I believe the city/town/village at a location is always in the center of t...

Re: XL Engine source code release!

Ah, reverse psychology! So it's not a prank after all. This is very interesting, but I'm not fully understanding what this source code release means yet (i.e., whether Lucius' code on GitHub is 1/3rd, this is another 1/3rd, and the missing game-specific code is another 1/3rd?). Is this intended to b...

Re: OpenTESArena 0.6.0 Released!

The actual difference is between whether you are using a MIDI selection that uses the .XFM MIDI files or one that uses the .XMI MIDI files. In the former case only one dungeon track is played, but in the latter multiple tracks can be played. You know, I was actually suspicious of this, and you've c...

Re: OpenTESArena 0.6.0 Released!

I haven't had any noticeable problems using saves I made in the CD version in the floppy version. Good to know. Maybe it's going to be easier than I thought. I'll try to get to CD version support and original save file loading sometime in the next few months. I was just brainstorming a replacement ...
