[18:25:33] <fingolfin> hi
[18:25:37] <wjp> wow, someone is here :-)
[18:25:39] <wjp> hi :-)
[18:25:57] <wjp> kind of empty in here lately :/
[18:27:15] <fingolfin> sadly yes :(
[18:29:59] * wjp wonders if the BeOS "can't create gamedat" bug is related to the trailing-slash problem with MacOS a while back
[18:31:01] <fingolfin> hum
[18:31:33] <wjp> I guess I would have to reboot to beos to find out
[18:34:05] <fingolfin> really? you cant magically find out? :)
[18:34:21] <wjp> no... *sniff*
[18:34:56] <wjp> well, unless I knew an actual BeOS user.. (but those are rare ;-) )
[18:35:26] <fingolfin> =)
[18:36:03] --- fingolfin is now known as Fingolfin|dinner
[18:57:52] --- Fingolfin|dinner is now known as Fingolfin
[20:38:40] <wjp> wb
[20:39:09] * wjp is fixing powderkegs!
[20:39:15] <wjp> chain reactions, woohoo ;-)
[20:43:05] <Fingolfin> hehhe
[20:43:07] <Fingolfin> good :)
[20:43:17] <Fingolfin> and thx for the wb, albeit late :)
[20:43:24] <wjp> np :-)
[20:43:45] * wjp just blew up a bunch of chickens from a screen away... muahahaha
[20:45:33] <wjp> hmm, it seems there's a bug with sprite effects and loading a game
[20:46:06] <Fingolfin> hehe
[20:46:17] <wjp> looks like they aren't reset
[20:46:29] <wjp> so I've now got two explosions stuck on one spot permanently
[20:47:24] <Fingolfin> och
[20:47:28] <Fingolfin> ouch even
[20:55:47] <wjp> there's a "remove_all_effects()" function, but it's never called
[20:55:52] <wjp> oops :-)
[20:58:33] --> Dominus has joined #exult
[20:58:37] <wjp> hi
[20:58:50] <Dominus> hi
[20:58:59] <Dominus> nice to have kegs working again
[20:59:03] <Dominus> thx wjp
[20:59:06] <wjp> again?
[20:59:20] <wjp> np :-)
[20:59:22] <Dominus> they DID work before
[20:59:32] <Dominus> Iīm pretty sure of that
[20:59:46] <wjp> the chain reactions too?
[20:59:51] <Dominus> yep
[21:00:24] <wjp> the doors part could've worked because attacking items was generally broken anyway, but I'm pretty sure chain reactions were never implemented yet
[21:00:29] <wjp> ah well, doesn't matter much :-)
[21:00:36] <Dominus> some time between changing the "hardness" of doors and chests it got lost
[21:00:36] <Fingolfin> :)
[21:00:39] <Dominus> :-)
[21:00:54] <Dominus> well we COULD check with older Alphas
[21:00:57] <Dominus> ...
[21:01:00] <Fingolfin> hi Dominus
[21:01:08] <wjp> we even have a full CVS history :-)
[21:01:09] <Dominus> hi Fingolfin
[21:01:50] <Dominus> btw, the guy who asked for help with sound on the mailing list had a totally screwed up cfg
[21:02:26] <Dominus> <waves> in <audio> and such
[21:02:44] <Fingolfin> he
[21:03:11] <wjp> how sure are you about that cow thing, btw?
[21:03:19] <Dominus> not really sure
[21:03:33] <Dominus> could be it was that way in the original as well
[21:03:57] <wjp> it sounds like something the U7 team could have done
[21:04:11] <Dominus> he he
[21:04:42] <Dominus> can I build Exult now or are some more updates coming?
[21:04:43] <Dominus> :-)
[21:04:48] <wjp> wait a while :-)
[21:04:51] <Dominus> like refresh screen?
[21:05:00] <wjp> refresh screen?
[21:05:29] <Dominus> that stuff you mentioned earlier with explosions showing after reload
[21:05:44] * Dominus did notice this for a while but always forgot to mention
[21:05:44] <wjp> oh, yes, that one
[21:06:01] <wjp> we just didn't clear the fx queue
[21:06:25] --> chimera|wookin has joined #exult
[21:06:30] <wjp> easy fix, but somehow I managed to get it to segfault...
[21:06:32] <Fingolfin> chimera|wookin: !!
[21:06:34] <Dominus> chimera|wookin!!!!
[21:06:36] <wjp> matt!!!

[21:07:10] <Dominus> Jeff did a nice job on slimes btw
[21:07:11] <chimera|wookin> WJP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!11
[21:07:12] <chimera|wookin> gheehehehe
[21:07:16] <Dominus> :-)
[21:07:25] <chimera|wookin> ooh slimes!
[21:07:58] <Dominus> yeah, it seems that the oldest open bug can be closed now
[21:08:03] <Fingolfin> hehhe
[21:08:13] * Dominus nudges Fingolfin about http://sourceforge.net/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=455454&group_id=2335&atid=102335
[21:08:18] * Dominus ducks
[21:08:29] <wjp> oh right, that one
[21:08:43] * wjp nudges Fingolfin together with Dominus
[21:08:52] * wjp decides it would be wise to duck as well
[21:09:06] * Fingolfin wonders what all that nudging is about
[21:09:12] <chimera|wookin> hehe
[21:09:23] * Fingolfin thwaps wjp and Dominus with an old slime covered trout
[21:09:29] <Fingolfin> that's how you do it! muwahaha
[21:09:31] <Dominus> uargh
[21:09:42] * wjp blows Fingolfin up with 20 chain-reacting powderkegs
[21:09:48] <chimera|wookin> ouch!
[21:09:48] <wjp> muahahaha
[21:09:59] * Fingolfin lies around in many tiny pieces, unable to fix any bugs
[21:09:59] * chimera|wookin wields the Hoe of Destruction in a threatening manner
[21:10:09] <wjp> oops...
[21:10:15] * wjp casts Major Glueing
[21:10:41] * Dominus wonders what Fingolfinīs head is doing on Fingolfinīs knee
[21:10:41] <wjp> now fix those bugs ;-)
[21:10:45] * Fingolfin reassembles, but womders about some amatomically incorrectnesses
[21:10:56] <wjp> I never get that spell right :/
[21:10:59] <Fingolfin> see! because of you I can't spell anymore!
[21:11:05] <Fingolfin> spell spell? :)
[21:11:22] <chimera|wookin> hehehehe Fingolfin!
[21:12:01] <wjp> :-)
[21:12:22] <wjp> maybe 'repair' will fix it... Rel Sanct Ylem, right?
[21:14:15] <Fingolfin> uuhhmmmmm
[21:14:42] * Fingolfin frantically tries to find out if that is right or if not, how he can ward of wjp's untrained attempets at repairing the damag he wrought
[21:14:50] * Dominus just checked chain reactions with Alpha 4 and ashamed bows down to wjp and swears to never doubt his word again
[21:15:06] <wjp> hehe :-)
[21:15:07] <Fingolfin> Dominus: try alpha 3 or 2 maybe?
[21:15:15] <wjp> 0.12?
[21:15:38] <wjp> I should have my original windows port lying around somewhere, I think...
[21:16:00] <Fingolfin> it is "mending" in UW II
[21:16:01] <Dominus> nope I just swore an oath and wonīt check up on wjp again
[21:16:21] * Fingolfin seems to have cast BET ORT IN
[21:16:33] <wjp> small magic create?
[21:16:43] <Fingolfin> "luck" :)
[21:16:46] <wjp> ah :-)
[21:16:55] <wjp> never used that one :-)
[21:17:08] <wjp> I used Rel Sanct Ylem a lot more often
[21:17:30] <wjp> Vas Ort Ylem was nice too
[21:17:38] <Fingolfin> I can imagine - I mean with all those poweder kegs around...
[21:17:50] <wjp> hehe :-)
[21:18:46] * wjp tries to remember some more spells...
[21:18:46] <wjp> Ylem Por...

[21:20:59] <Dominus> I was just about to ask
[21:22:58] <Fingolfin> look, this was simply the first page I googled! Don't be so arrogant just because I slime-thwapped you! :)
