[02:53:30] <ShadwChsr> Anyone here use TortoiseCVS?
[03:08:33] <ShadwChsr> Guess not :D

[03:09:09] <paddyb> yay it worked
[03:09:40] <paddyb> ?
[03:10:02] <paddyb> anybody home?
[03:10:08] <ShadwChsr> Yeah
[03:10:16] <paddyb> ah cool
[03:12:08] <paddyb> i just thought i'd pop in here to see if there was any life, i just discovered exult awhile ago and im excited about the idea of playing U7 again
[03:12:28] <ShadwChsr> :D
[03:12:31] <ShadwChsr> Have you tried it yet?
[03:12:34] <paddyb> no
[03:12:38] <ShadwChsr> Try it :)
[03:12:42] <ShadwChsr> You'll be amazed
[03:12:42] <paddyb> i need a pc to download it on first right?
[03:12:50] <ShadwChsr> Well what are you using right now?
[03:13:00] <paddyb> Mac OS X 10.2.8
[03:13:13] <paddyb> my Ultima Collection has been sitting in the box for like 5 years
[03:13:16] <ShadwChsr> AFAIK it runs on Mac but I'm not 100% sure about OSX yet, but I imagine so
[03:13:29] <paddyb> i downloaded an OSX version
[03:13:38] <ShadwChsr> There ya go
[03:13:43] <ShadwChsr> Problems?
[03:13:51] <paddyb> im not that computer savvy tho, i might wait until my tech buddy can help me tommorow
[03:13:58] <paddyb> i dont have a PC emulator either
[03:14:19] <paddyb> if i getting it going tho, there goes my social life
[03:14:52] <ShadwChsr> Ahhh :P
[03:15:08] <ShadwChsr> It does some cool things, like fixing bugs in the original game and adding paperdolls for Black Gate :)
[03:15:15] <paddyb> yeah
[03:15:41] <paddyb> i only ever played Black Gate so it should be interesting
[03:16:14] <ShadwChsr> Wow
[03:16:16] <ShadwChsr> Dear god
[03:16:17] <ShadwChsr> :)
[03:16:18] <paddyb> haha
[03:16:24] <ShadwChsr> Serpent Isle is one of the best games ever greated :D
[03:16:28] <ShadwChsr> err created lol
[03:16:35] <paddyb> never beat it either, despite the hours and hours i spent on it
[03:16:45] <ShadwChsr> Haha I've never beat it either :)
[03:16:47] <ShadwChsr> Sad, I know
[03:16:53] <paddyb> i got too distracted baking bread and taking over houses and hoarding weapons and the like hahahaha
[03:16:59] <ShadwChsr> Serpent Isle I came close, but I always have trouble finding the temples at the end
[03:17:17] <paddyb> iirc, i got stuck on that cube generator maze i think
[03:17:21] <ShadwChsr> Yeah, I always used Stefano's house for hoarding
[03:17:31] <ShadwChsr> In serpent isle I used the.. err well I better not give that away
[03:17:35] <ShadwChsr> :)
[03:17:39] <paddyb> haha
[03:17:55] <ShadwChsr> I think Ultima 8 is the only one I've ever beaten
[03:18:01] <ShadwChsr> I need to dig U9 out too
[03:18:59] <paddyb> never tried those
[03:19:11] <ShadwChsr> Ahhh
[03:19:13] <ShadwChsr> they arent as good
[03:19:15] <paddyb> i never really got the ultima collection working that well on windows 98
[03:19:18] <ShadwChsr> but interesting in their own rights
[03:19:19] <paddyb> so i gave up on it
[03:19:23] <ShadwChsr> Yeah it doesnt really
[03:19:27] <ShadwChsr> Virtual PC is the best way to do it
[03:19:40] <paddyb> back when i used 3.11 it worked great tho, other than trying to get enough DOS memory
[03:19:43] <paddyb> that was a chore
[03:19:49] <ShadwChsr> Haha yeah
[03:19:51] <ShadwChsr> brutal memory manager
[03:19:59] <ShadwChsr> thats why it doesnt work under Windows XP!
[03:20:22] <paddyb> yeah, so for a mac do i need a virutal PC?
[03:20:42] <paddyb> wait, i can use an XP computer to get the files tho right?
[03:20:59] <ShadwChsr> No
[03:21:09] <ShadwChsr> Just drag the files onto your mac and configure exult
[03:21:14] <ShadwChsr> no installation/etc
[03:21:22] <paddyb> hmm ok i'll try that
[03:21:55] <ShadwChsr> Once you get the files in the right spot it's easy
[03:22:47] <paddyb> gotta get that nasty Baldur's Gate CD out of the drive first
[03:27:21] <paddyb> hmm no it wont run
[03:27:27] <paddyb> i think i might need 10.3
[03:27:32] <ShadwChsr> What does it say
[03:27:50] <paddyb> i double click on the exult icon and it starts to open then stops
[03:28:00] <paddyb> like most things do that need a newer OS version
[03:28:33] <ShadwChsr> Yeah you'd need to ask in the exult forums or find a help file
[03:28:43] <ShadwChsr> Chances are it doesn't require 10.3 though
[03:29:15] <paddyb> hmm
