The engine has nothing to do

They're doing this on their own time, so they can release it whenever they feel it's ready to go. I'd rather wait for 3.0 than try to enjoy Fallout 4 or anything else in my library. Always find myself coming back to this gem that these magicians have selflessly provided for us. Stuff this complex takes time, plain and simple. 

Paddle faster, I hear banjo music!

Wolfenstein II came out so I

Wolfenstein II came out so I've spent the better part of a week playing that. Another dev log will be out this weekend.

I'm afraid that you'll all be waiting for 3.0 for quite some time yet. I refuse to abandon the project, it may take up to a couple of years, but it will come out eventually.

It's a tricky time. Between South Park, Middle-Earth: Shadow of War, Wolfenstein, Assassin's Creed and Call of Duty, there's almost something for everyone. I've noticed this with the kids at school. Really unfortunate that all the current releases coincide with the students' exams.

Roy I can't tell if your joking about the couple of years part or if you all are now looking for someone else to work on the installer because the last guy who came on board to work on it vanished and you all have no one else who is able to finish it.

Sorry to hear that Roy. On

Sorry to hear that Roy. On the one hand that's a bummer to hear, on the other now I have no reason to finally try and install TTW for the first time.       Thanks for all the work you guys do and have done, I'm nervously excited to start this new adventure.

Wow. I'm sorry to hear that; whatever it was, dealing with it on top of TTW development not to mention real-life responsibilities has to be stressful. Sad to hear about the delay as well, but we can be patient.

Just getting started on those actually, it's tedious and boring.

Correcting the node order makes the blood decals work correctly.

I'm only like 1/2 done with the weapons too... all kinds of whack in them.

What is it that needs fixing?

What is it that needs fixing? If it's some detectable stuff, then it should be easy to make a xEdit script that will automate it.

xEdit added script support

xEdit added script support for editing .nif files a while back. You can edit the .nifs for Morrowind, Oblivion, Fallout 3, New Vegas, Skyrim, Fallout 4, and Skyrim SE through xEdit scripting now.

Unfortunately it's a process

Unfortunately it's a process that cannot be automated, it requires manual inspection to determine what's wrong, missing extradata, out of order nodes, broken UV mapping, missing or wrong textures/cube maps, etc.

Nif support is great, zilav made a script for the invalid emittance, that saved countless hours. :D

I have a question. Since an installer is still some time off, is it possible to do a manual install of TTW 3.0?

Not in any legal way. So, no.

So it is not possible to distribute the legal files and executables, and have the players move all the assets on their own?

Without an installer the user

Without an installer the user can't patch the original FO3 files into the TTW compatible files. The only way would be for us to distribute the already patched files. That will never happen because it is explicit against copyright and digital distribution laws.

We will never do this, so if anyone is thinking of asking for it, you shouldn't even try. Remember, we ban people if they mention piracy (or pirate copies of the games) and in the law, distribute game files is considered piracy. So if anyone asks, the most probable answer would be a no and maybe even a ban.

The old installer had a

The old installer had a folder of patches, essentially bindiffs of the original game's files, and then a folder of the TTW created stuff. I still don't understand why the old installer can't be used with patches of the newer changes? That isn't bypassing any legal requirements.

The removing of files from BSAs and repacking them may be a bit more fiddly but not impossible for long-time users and a detailed set of instructions could easily be provided.

Likewise the use of NVSE/JIPLN. Any TTW user worth their salt will know to install that.

As it is now the list of changes in this 3.0 changelog will warrant a 4.0 release before a new installer is created.

It's more than just patching,

It's more than just patching, files need shuffled around into different directories for the voices and that alone is complicated (not even I have the list of files for this). Removing files from BSAs is not hard, but it would require owning Skyrim to do properly because CKIT comes with archive.exe, other programs cannot create the archives correctly for the base game without manually hex editing the header flags. BSAopt in particular creates corrupted archives.

We absolutely cannot distribute files, and the sooner we take down the old version the better.

The process is a lot more complicated than it seems.

Hello,

Hello,

I'm sorry to hear that TTW 3.0 is delayed.

I was about to ask why CaliberX v5.04 had been removed from the Nexus page, but I've just read your updated comment Roy, and I'm glad that v5.05 will be out soon.

Best wishes to you and the TTW team!
