[04:41:10] <Colourless> also go fetch Darke from work. i'm sure he'd much rather be here

[08:54:59] --- ChanServ gives channel operator status to Dominus
[08:55:23] <Dominus> hi
[08:55:56] <Dominus> testing a new version of Trillian (the irc client I use)
[09:22:58] <Dominus> hm, couls someone say Dominus in the chat and also try to dcc me something?
[09:23:06] <Dominus> skip the say dominus
[09:23:42] * Darke will dcc. A moment. *grin*
[09:23:52] <Dominus> just configured an event sound for my nick here, so I get notified if someone talks behind my back :-)
[09:24:59] * Darke snickers.
[09:25:11] <Dominus> well, that worked, thanks
[09:25:14] <Darke> Wow. I guess it works. *grin*
[09:25:36] <Dominus> hm
[09:25:50] * Darke blinkies. The usecode to No Regret really is rather small. *grin* It was just something randomly grabbed that was close.
[09:26:47] <Dominus> I was just puzzled because my nick alert went off, without my nick being mentioned...
[09:26:56] <Dominus> maybe needs some finetuning
[09:27:06] * Darke nods. Probably. *grin*
[09:32:35] <Dominus> brb
[09:32:40] <-- Dominus has left IRC ("enough for now")
[09:34:20] --> Dominus has joined #exult
[09:34:48] --- ChanServ gives channel operator status to Dominus
[09:35:09] * Darke pawwaves. Welcome back!
[09:35:23] <Dominus> thx
[09:35:33] <Dominus> I love playing with newer versions
[09:35:48] * Darke guessed. *grin*
[09:41:24] <-- Dominus has left IRC ("enough for now")
[09:48:25] --> Dominus has joined #exult
[09:48:49] --- ChanServ gives channel operator status to Dominus
[09:48:55] <Dominus> back again :-)
[09:49:50] * Darke ties the bouncy documentor to the channel so he can't easily slip away again. Hi!
[09:54:15] <Dominus> well, so far it looks like I'm done :-)

[12:40:20] --> Colourless has joined #Exult
[12:40:20] --- ChanServ gives channel operator status to Colourless
[12:40:35] <Colourless> hi
[12:40:49] <Darke> Greetings oh un-coloured one. *bow*
[12:41:30] <Colourless> calling my un-coloured implies that I was once coloured and have lost my colour, or I am yet to be coloured
[12:42:01] <Colourless> neither of which is true
[12:42:26] * Darke looks innocent as he discreetly, and gently, kicks a bucket of paint under the couch.
[12:43:07] <Colourless> now you are an annoying little rabbiy
[12:43:11] <Colourless> rabbit even
[12:45:28] * Darke bows humbly. "You really don't need to go overboard with the complements. I already know how greatly you value my presense." *innocentblink*
[12:46:33] <Colourless> oh, sorry, i'll try to be less nice in the future
[12:51:00] * Darke snickers. As you wish.
[12:52:08] <Colourless> hey mister bunny, you asked for it
[12:52:23] <Colourless> quote "You really don't need to go overboard with the complements."
[13:01:01] <Darke> On a completely different topic... are you working with setting up the PentagramFileSystem, or moving over the Buffer classes at the moment? If not I'll just create a very basic structure of it so I can use it with disasm.
[13:01:44] <Colourless> na, i haven't touched that stuff yet
[13:05:22] <Darke> No problem. I'll see what I can put together. *grin* It's not likely to be at all complicated I hope.
[13:05:38] * Darke however, must heed the call of the sandman now. Night!
[13:05:43] <Colourless> cya
[13:05:44] <Colourless> :-)

[14:17:20] <Nadir> hi
[14:17:39] <Colourless> hi
[14:19:37] <Nadir> we really need to update the news page. What's happened since Aug 19th ?
[14:27:50] <Kirben> not much according to changelog
[14:33:17] <-- Colourless has left IRC ("has left")
[14:33:27] <Nadir> has spellbook combat been implemented ?
[14:34:30] <Kirben> I think so, in 1.1.x
[14:40:07] <Nadir> updated news
[14:40:12] <Nadir> (not much there)

[17:00:34] <wjp> hi
[17:00:38] --- ChanServ gives channel operator status to Dominus
[17:01:35] <Dominus> hi
[17:01:43] <Suvroc> hi
[17:02:15] <Dominus> I think I'm gonna work on some docs tonight. For a change
[17:02:26] <Dominus> earn my developers income from exult
[17:08:09] --> GNUChild has joined #exult
[17:30:35] <Dominus> what the hell does <step_tile_delta> in exult.cfg do?
[17:39:55] <Dominus> wjp do you know?
[17:47:02] <wjp> it has something to do with walking speed
[17:47:58] <Dominus> hmm
[17:48:49] <wjp> hmm... or maybe it doesn't
[17:49:38] <wjp> it could also be related to how far NPCs walk before reconsidering where they're going
[17:50:05] <Dominus> ah, that sounds interesting
[17:50:54] <wjp> no...
[17:51:10] <Dominus> start_actor_alt
[17:51:17] <wjp> it seems that it's only used for the avatar
[17:51:18] <Dominus> in gamewin.cc
[17:51:21] <wjp> yeah
[17:51:34] <wjp> that comment doesn't really say much :-)
[17:51:44] <Dominus> Bigger # here avoids jerkiness
[17:51:53] <Dominus> but causes probs. with followers
[17:53:33] <Dominus> well, that gives me an idea on what to write
[17:54:21] --> ShadwChsr has joined #Exult
[17:58:23] <wjp> ok... it _looks_ like it mainly affects how the party follows the avatar
[17:58:40] <wjp> if the number is lower, they'll follow closer, but they'll have to re-pathfind more often
[17:59:19] <Dominus> ok
[18:00:01] <wjp> or something like that, anyway :-)
[18:00:26] <Dominus> he
[18:00:27] <wjp> it basically indicates how far ahead of the avatar the tile is that the party is walking towards
[18:04:49] <Dominus> that gives me something to work on...
[18:07:19] <Dominus> I'm going to put a default exult.cfg online that has all the stuff from the doc in it without my comments
[18:08:26] <wjp> because of that last email? :-)
[18:09:11] <Dominus> mainly
[18:09:28] <Dominus> and so people have an example of it has too look
[18:10:11] <Dominus> put a how in there
[18:10:45] <wjp> heh, I already did that, it seems... (didn't notice it was missing :-) )
[18:11:02] <Dominus> he

[18:20:12] --> artaxerxes has joined #exult
[18:20:21] <artaxerxes> hi all
[18:20:25] <wjp> hi
[18:20:28] <Dominus> hi artaxerxes
[18:20:31] <Suvroc> hi
[18:20:33] <artaxerxes> I have to go fairly soon so I can't stay too long
[18:20:44] <artaxerxes> Can someone help me with this translation:
[18:20:47] <artaxerxes> For all that I am an Adept
[18:20:53] <artaxerxes> (said by Mortego)
[18:21:02] <artaxerxes> what does this mean ?
[18:21:13] <Dominus> what's the context?
[18:21:24] <artaxerxes> L24E6: db '"I do not believe I could return home without thy guidance..'
[18:21:24] <artaxerxes> db '. For all that I am an Adept."'
[18:24:03] <Dominus> I think it means something like "Even though I am an Adept"
[18:24:32] <artaxerxes> anybody can confirm ?
[18:28:24] <Suvroc> artaxerxes, about the names on the translation
[18:29:11] <Suvroc> i saw that you have changed some names
[18:29:32] <Suvroc> in the spanish version seems that some sites still got the original name
[18:29:44] <Suvroc> i mean, Moonshade still is Moonshade
[18:30:14] <Suvroc> the only sites i remember now that they are changed are Skullcrusher and Spinebreaker
[18:30:29] <Suvroc> aps, the Magister was translated too
[18:31:01] <artaxerxes> interesting
[18:31:08] <artaxerxes> what else is translated ?
[18:31:36] <artaxerxes> thx Dominus.... I'll take your word for it since noone seems to confirm/inform :-)
[18:31:57] <Suvroc> umm, don't know exactly
[18:32:10] <Suvroc> for know i can remember those only
[18:32:26] <Suvroc> there is any way to saw the text of the game ?
[18:32:45] <Suvroc> i think, there could be a way, because you are translating it...
[18:33:01] <wjp> artaxerxes, Dominus: yes, that's about the right translation for that line by Mortegro
[18:33:14] <artaxerxes> thx wjp
[18:33:28] <Dominus> artaxerxes: I think it makes sense. As he is a master magician (Adept) but couldn't get out there by himself
[18:35:11] <artaxerxes> suvroc, get my tool "le_camomille.pl" from the si-french CVS repository, and put it in a folder along with usecode and type: "./le_camomille.pl -prepare". It will generate all the files by itself
[18:35:28] <artaxerxes> now I must leave... thx for your help guys!
[18:35:32] <artaxerxes> talk to you later
[18:35:32] <wjp> bye
[18:35:36] <-- artaxerxes has left IRC ("using sirc version 2.211+KSIRC/1.1")
[18:35:49] <wjp> hm, dinner's ready; I'll bbl
[18:35:55] <ShadwChsr> "For all that I am an Adept" means with all his skill as an adept he could not escape
[18:36:23] <ShadwChsr> an Adept would never say "even though"
[18:36:33] <Dominus> he he
[18:36:49] <Dominus> but the meaning is the same, right?
[18:37:23] <ShadwChsr> yeah mabye ;)
[18:37:32] <Dominus> :-)
[18:37:34] <ShadwChsr> :P My brain hasnt booted up shesh
[18:47:05] <-- ShadwChsr has left IRC ()
[18:58:16] <Dominus> sometime someone should make the options look the same, meaning some options are capital letters each, others are only firts word capital letter...
[18:58:25] <Dominus> firts=first
[19:05:17] <wjp> b
[19:12:54] <Dominus> how can they provide even cheaper hosting :-)
[19:13:02] <Dominus> (spam to the ML)
[19:17:31] <wjp> hehe :-)
[19:22:00] <wjp> funny... I got that same email myself too
[19:25:18] <Dominus> oh, just found a bug with the great hierophant
[19:25:56] <Dominus> after you cast summon shade, he speaks his speech and eventually goes into the void
[19:26:16] <Dominus> if you then close the coffin, you can cast it again and he does the same
[19:26:51] <Dominus> he is called the Great Hierophant, isn't he?
[19:27:05] <wjp> I think so, yes
[19:27:19] <wjp> hm, any idea if that is possible in the original too?
[19:27:27] <Dominus> no idea
[19:27:41] <Dominus> on closing the coffin, the body gets recreated
[19:27:46] <wjp> it doesn't really sound like a bug in exult, somehow
[19:27:56] <Dominus> yep
[19:28:32] <Dominus> but I'll file as bug anyway

[19:50:39] <Suvroc> hi again
[19:51:27] <Dominus> he he, going through the FAQ with the Frontpage spell checker and it really has Source Forge in its dictionary (compalined about me writing SourceForge)

[20:25:22] <Dominus> didn't think that I have soooo many spelling mistakes
[20:25:59] <Dominus> though most are just mistakes like writing muisc instead of music....
[21:41:23] <Dominus> so, cvs update coming now every minute
[21:51:57] <wjp> time for me to go
[21:51:59] <wjp> g'night
[21:52:00] <Dominus> ok, done
[21:52:04] <wjp> yay :-)
[21:52:06] <Dominus> see you
