OpenMW 0.46 brings experimental support for Oblivion, Fallout 3, New Vegas and Skyrim

Recommended Posts


OpenMW, the free open source engine, has announced implemention of the compressed BSA format to support the games Oblivion, Fallout 3, Fallout: New Vegas and Skyrim. The modern BSA files can be loaded, but much work remains and we are still a long way off from being able to play through these games fully.

It is incredible that so much progress had been made on this free open source engine and the possibilities are exciting. The engine, which was originally designed to re-implement and extend the 2002 Gamebryo engine for The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind, has now been ported to Android, to VR, and it even has a multiplayer fork called TES3MP. The implications of support for modern Gamebryo engine games are very interesting and could eventually see new VR implementations with crossplatform support. Perhaps one day support could extend to Creation Engine games like Fallout 4 and Fallout 76 and have them run on the macOS and Linux operating systems.

Until more progress is made on development, you can check out some of the very interesting videos creating by developer cc9cii showing off the new BSA support:

      This is the extracted official Polish translation for 'The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion Game of The Year Edition & Deluxe Edition'. Tested only with the GOG version of the game, but it will have to work on any version of the game.
      In Polish: Jest to oficjalne polskie tłumaczenie dla 'The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion Game of The Year Edition oraz Deluxe Edition'. Testowane na wersji GOG, ale powinno także działać na innych wydaniach.

      PS. To unpack the archive, download the desired version and throw all files into one folder, and then open the file "TES IV Oblivion GOTY Spolszczenie.7z.001" or "TES IV Oblivion GOTY Deluxe Spolszczenie.7z.001" (depends on the selected version).
      In Polish: Aby wypakować archiwum, należy pobrać pożądaną wersję i wrzucić do jednego folderu wszystkie pliki, a potem otworzyć plik "TES IV Oblivion GOTY Spolszczenie.7z.001" lub "TES IV Oblivion GOTY Deluxe Spolszczenie.7z.001" (zależy od wybranej wersji).
      UWAGA!!! Po pobraniu należy w launcherze wejść w "Pliki danych" i zaznaczyć "!Oblivion_PL.esp", a następnie nacisnąć "OK". W przeciwnym wypadku gra wciąż będzie po angielsku.

      Use the coupons GFDAUG20 or GFDAUG20UK for UK.
      For your information, Fallout 3 and Fallout 3 GOTY do not register on Steam. They also appear to be the same price, so the GOTY version is the obvious choice in this case.
