[11:43:50] <Colourless> yes i saw something

[13:29:01] --> Tired_ has joined #exult
[13:29:05] <Tired_> Hello
[13:29:13] <sbx> hi
[13:29:42] <Tired_> I just discovered your page on sourceforge, and I was wondering if you were up for some stupid newbie question.
[13:30:18] <Tired_> I really liked Ultima 4 a lot, would I like Ultima 7?
[13:31:08] <sbx> I dunno... I don't remember u4 (except the "you've gained an eighth!")
[13:31:29] <sbx> I bet wjp knows.
[13:31:42] <Tired_> Do you know if the interface is very different?
[13:32:41] <sbx> oh yes
[13:32:57] <Tired_> Does it use a mouse?
[13:32:58] <sbx> It is fullscreen and completely mouse based, although Exult has added keyboard control.
[13:33:05] <Tired_> Oh.
[13:33:20] <sbx> It uses graphical popup windows to show stats/inventory/containers etc.
[13:33:26] <Tired_> Oh.
[13:33:35] <sbx> Your equipment is on a paperdoll (image of your character)
[13:33:39] <sbx> and you drag things around
[13:33:47] <Tired_> Oh.
[13:33:55] <sbx> either to move them on the ground or between people
[13:34:00] <sbx> Why don't you look at some screenshots?
[13:34:21] * Tired_ goes back to the page to look some more.
[13:34:40] <Tired_> Oh.
[13:34:50] <Tired_> This looks like a fancy new game.
[13:35:13] <Tired_> Props to you guys for doing this, but I was hoping for something simpler.
[13:35:18] <Tired_> Thanks anyways. :)
[13:35:55] <-- Tired_ has left #exult ()
[13:38:48] <sbx> He sounded like a troll.
[13:41:16] <wjp> "fancy new game" ? :-)
[13:41:45] <wjp> I haven't heard people say that about U7 for about 8 years I think :-)
[13:42:48] <sbx> nope
[14:04:00] <-- Kirben has left IRC (Read error: 104 (Connection reset by peer))
[14:17:41] --- sbx is now known as sbx|afk
[14:29:33] <-- Colourless has left IRC ("bbl")
[15:13:13] <Jammet> Hoping for something .. simpler?
[15:13:19] * Jammet blinkies confused.
[15:13:27] <Jammet> =^_^= That was odd.
[15:13:43] <Jammet> You wanna simple game, play Pac Man.
[15:13:46] * Jammet mews.
[15:27:27] --- Ember is now known as Darke
[15:30:01] * Darke releases a quartet of ghosts on the cub, then escapes back off to sleep. (Whaaaaat? A yellow cub looks a lot like a yellow, circular chomping thing! They're both yellow, and eat things. *grin*)
[15:58:24] <ZutGu> good morning
[15:58:24] <ZutGu> whats happening here ?
[15:58:39] <Jammet> I'm getting to chase four ghosts around in the channel =^_^=.
[15:58:49] <Jammet> Apart from that, nothing much. =)
[16:01:54] <ZutGu> :P
[16:02:21] <ZutGu> Finally I have original copy of Ultima 7 and serpent isle addon :D

[16:08:42] <Jammet> ZutGu: Ah, cool =). Enjoy?
[16:09:48] * wjp wonders why the line "A yellow cub looks a lot like a yellow, circular chomping thing!" reminded him of certain "Handwritten Note"s in Watcher's Keep :-)
[16:10:01] <Colourless> hehe
[16:10:10] <Colourless> yay for LtM
[16:13:04] <ZutGu> I don't play ultima much anyone but I just wanted to get original ultima copy :P
[16:13:11] <ZutGu> anyone = anymore :P
[16:13:21] <ZutGu> argh...
[16:13:48] <wjp> hm, on what level was LtM's machine again?
[16:13:55] <Colourless> 6th?
[16:14:00] <Colourless> 7th?
[16:14:32] * Colourless really doesn't remember
[16:14:46] <wjp> 4th, it seems
[16:15:03] <wjp> so I'm almost there :-)
[16:15:23] * Colourless likes putting in random combinations into the machine and getting random stuff
[16:15:56] * Colourless last played though with a level 40 character so he had little to fear
[16:21:25] * Jammet sadly has no idea what the meaning of that Watcher's Keep.
[16:21:42] * Jammet hears somebody calling for him and goes to check things out.
