[00:00:34] <Slade_U7> Well thats not so bad.
[00:00:56] <wjp> if I'm right, that is... EA might very well object
[00:01:06] <Slade_U7> :(
[00:01:14] <Slade_U7> Dumb Richard Garriot.
[00:01:21] * Slade_U7 kicks Lord Blimey
[00:10:06] <Slade_U7> Why was the decision to not pause with the inventory?
[00:10:09] <Slade_U7> and the midi loop?
[00:11:03] <wjp> midi loop?
[00:11:14] <Slade_U7> like a midi will keep playing
[00:11:17] <Slade_U7> and playing
[00:11:21] <Slade_U7> until a new one comes
[00:11:33] <wjp> didn't the original have that too?
[00:11:46] <Slade_U7> No.
[00:11:51] <Slade_U7> It plays once.
[00:12:01] <wjp> some do
[00:12:49] <Slade_U7> well... what about the pause?
[00:13:35] <wjp> it may become an option to pause anyway, but being able to walk around with gumps open can be pretty useful
[00:13:54] <Slade_U7> well.. what if I need to heal a wonded guy?
[00:13:58] <Slade_U7> wounded?
[00:14:13] <wjp> hurry :-)
[00:14:28] <wjp> or press ctrl-alt-h ;-)
[00:14:38] <Slade_U7> whats that do?
[00:14:43] <wjp> heal party cheat
[00:14:47] <Slade_U7> ah
[00:14:48] <Slade_U7> hehehe
[00:22:09] <Slade_U7> whens the next estimated update?
[00:22:33] <wjp> release?
[00:22:38] <Slade_U7> yeah
[00:22:41] <wjp> not a clue
[00:22:49] <Slade_U7> heh
[00:23:02] <wjp> you can always get the daily windows snapshots, though
[00:23:09] <Slade_U7> what is that?
[00:23:15] <Slade_U7> I never... "knew" what it was
[00:23:25] <wjp> it's in the FAQ :-)
[00:23:32] <Slade_U7> oh well then.
[00:23:34] <Slade_U7> heh
[00:23:46] <wjp> they're daily Exult builds
[00:25:10] <wjp> (so you can already try all the cool things you see in the weekly homepage updates ;-) )
[00:25:24] <Slade_U7> oh!
[00:26:01] <Slade_U7> so.. it's just the things that are "under production?"
[00:26:18] <wjp> it's the latest version of the Exult source code
[00:26:42] <wjp> so, yes, it usually includes some 'under production' things
[00:33:14] <Slade_U7> You know anything about the, portraits?
[00:33:54] <Slade_U7> when they'll be "editable"
[00:34:05] <Slade_U7> when the editor is released? or is there another way?
[00:34:22] <wjp> hmm...
[00:34:36] <wjp> we have a plugin for the GIMP that can edit U7 graphics
[00:34:54] <Slade_U7> hmmm..
[00:35:06] <Slade_U7> is GIMP unix only?
[00:35:15] <wjp> no, there's windows port
[00:35:50] <Slade_U7> they ahve to be gifs?
[00:35:54] --> matt0 has joined #exult
[00:36:11] <wjp> gifs?
[00:36:23] <Slade_U7> compuserve GIFs
[00:36:26] <Slade_U7> the image type.
[00:36:28] <wjp> no, why?
[00:36:38] <Slade_U7> cause U7 is 256 colors
[00:36:44] <wjp> no, U7 uses a specific image type
[00:36:48] <Slade_U7> really?
[00:36:49] <Slade_U7> what type?
[00:37:09] <wjp> it's only used in U7 as far as I know
[00:37:52] <wjp> so I don't think it really has a name
[00:38:00] <Slade_U7> ha!
[00:38:01] <Slade_U7> heh
[00:38:08] <Slade_U7> hows it work?
[00:38:39] <wjp> hmm... don't know exactly... it uses some kind of RLE compression
[00:40:05] <Slade_U7> interesting.
[00:40:07] <wjp> if you're interested in U7's internals, there's some docs in http://cvs.sourceforge.net/cgi-bin/cvsweb.cgi/exult/docs/?cvsroot=exult
[00:42:19] <Slade_U7> thnx.
[00:45:42] <wjp> I should go to bed...
[00:45:52] <Slade_U7> well.. thanks for all your help today.
[00:46:01] <wjp> sure, no problem
[00:46:23] <wjp> drop by again sometime :-)
