[21:37:00] <dominus> hmm, where do you start the ethic test? and what flags need to be set to get the ethic water flowing?
[21:37:07] <dominus> http://exult.sourceforge.net/forum/read.php?f=1&i=342227&t=342227
[21:51:51] <wjp> Humm
[21:53:07] <wjp> you start it by double clicking a meditation mat in the temple
[21:55:11] <dominus> hmm, I have no clue anymore where I have to be on SI to do anything...
[21:55:18] <dominus> realy time to play it through
[21:56:37] <wjp> the temple is somewhere in the north, but I don't remember where exactly
[21:57:16] <wjp> for the serpent gate: http://usecode.org/ultima/u7si/serpent_gates.txt
[21:58:19] <wjp> I don't remember what happens when you fail the test
[21:58:38] <wjp> (e.g., by "accidentally" taking some gold)
[22:00:23] <wjp> http://ultima.wikia.com/wiki/Temple_of_Ethicality has a map
[22:01:32] <dominus> hmm, wasn't the crosshair on our cheat map much more "seeable"?
[22:01:47] <dominus> right now it is black and that is kind of making it hard to cheat :)
[22:03:52] <wjp> hm, no Exult or U7/SI on my laptop
[22:04:28] <dominus> heresy!!!!
[22:04:35] <wjp> I'm kind of shocked
[22:06:17] * wjp checks out svn
[22:07:01] <wjp> heh, gog.com doing more silly PR :-)
[22:07:21] <wjp> (did you follow that at all a couple of months ago?)
[22:08:06] <dominus> yes, the one where they seemed to shut down?
[22:08:10] <wjp> yeah
[22:08:17] <dominus> don't see a really silly pr right now on the site
[22:08:24] <wjp> second news item
[22:08:33] <wjp> it's not quite on the same level, but still kind of silly :-)
[22:08:38] <dominus> just saw it
[22:09:32] <wjp> fingers crossed for ultima releases, unlikely though it may be :-)

[22:19:21] <wjp> hm, quitting exult just hard-crashed my laptop
[22:20:02] <dominus> oh
[22:20:09] <dominus> that is serious...
[22:20:27] <dominus> I was able to pass the ethic test easily and have water on the spring
[22:21:18] <wjp> could you check what happens if you keep some gold?
[22:21:25] <wjp> (if you feel like it)
[22:22:33] <dominus> sure, but then the automaton who watches you probably just won'T let you pass on to the "batlin fight" test
[22:23:08] <dominus> once I found out where to go I can easiyl do the test again and again... :)
[22:24:38] <wjp> ugh, hard crash again
[22:24:52] <dominus> what system on your laptop?
[22:24:58] <wjp> start exult without config file, click on the "no data files found" message -> dead laptop
[22:25:06] <wjp> centos
[22:25:10] <wjp> (linux)
[22:25:20] <wjp> it really shouldn't do that :-)
[22:25:52] <wjp> it might be a sign I should go to bed :-)
[22:26:28] <dominus> when you don't pass any of the tests the automaton doesn't pass you the test -> no water in the basin... no idea what goes wrong there
[22:26:33] <dominus> maybe wrong test? :)
[22:26:39] <dominus> so you go to bed?
[22:26:41] <dominus> :)
[22:26:49] <wjp> huh, the serpent isle menu screen is scaled out of the screen
[22:27:13] <dominus> he he, something seriously going wrong there
[22:27:19] <wjp> gah
[22:27:31] <wjp> Creating 'gamedat' files.
[22:27:31] <wjp> ============================
[22:27:31] <wjp> An exception occured:
[22:27:31] <wjp> Error opening file /home/wjp/.exult/serpentisle/gamedat/npc.dat
[22:27:31] <wjp> errno: 2
[22:27:33] <wjp> Error Description: Success
[22:28:07] <wjp> I think I may want to do some testing on this laptop for the 1.5/6 release :-)
[22:28:35] <dominus> yes, sounds like that OS does want some attention
[22:28:40] <wjp> it failed to create the gamedat directory
[22:28:51] <wjp> creating it manually works around it
[22:29:28] <wjp> ah, the "current location" is black on the teleport map
[22:29:32] <dominus> sounds like a write protect problem, but you'd have noticed that when doing it manually
[22:29:48] <wjp> it probably doesn't try to create parent directories first
[22:32:06] <wjp> huh, it teleported me to Freedom?
[22:32:19] <dominus> ?
[22:32:42] <wjp> I started the test, answered the questions, was teleported to the test room, walked into the corridor to the east, and then suddenly was standing in the middle of a wall in Freedom
[22:32:57] <dominus> strange
[22:33:09] <dominus> that corridor shouldn't teleport you
[22:33:46] <dominus> you go to the end then north, read the sign, door opens, npc in wall of fire -> push button in fire -> test passed
[22:34:12] <wjp> powers beyond my control are clearly conspiring against me :-)
[22:34:38] <wjp> so I think I really will go to bed now :-)
[22:34:44] <dominus> ok
[22:35:00] <dominus> I'll file a bug report about black cheat teleport crosshair
[22:35:19] <wjp> is it yellow in BG?
[22:35:54] <wjp> anyway, good night :-)
[22:36:02] <dominus> nope black as well
[22:36:05] <dominus> good night
[22:39:24] <dominus> test works fine both in SI and SI+SS
