[03:04:42] <slashie> Hi!
[03:16:17] <Darrenor64> hi slash
[03:16:21] <Darrenor64> how is your turn-based stuff goin?
[03:18:00] <slashie> Haven't been able to work on it :/ pretty busy with work
[03:18:10] <slashie> Hope to work on it tomorrow
[03:19:39] <slashie> How's all else going around here :)
[03:22:22] <Darrenor64> i am in a similar position. work work work.
[03:22:57] <Darrenor64> developing a user interface at the very end of the project.
[03:23:08] <Darrenor64> 2 year project.
[03:25:41] <slashie> Oh my
[03:25:52] <slashie> Hope you don't have to add a lot to the backend
[03:26:01] <slashie> Once users start using it :)
[03:27:30] <slashie> On my side been busy implementing an authorization layer on a nodejs Web app, and also fucking around with cordova for an ios game
[03:28:03] <Darrenor64> how do you like the nodejs stuff?
[03:28:25] <Darrenor64> i was floored when I found that JS was actually being used for serious stuff these days.
[03:49:34] <slashie> I like it very much, been working in nodejs for a bit more than a year. Before that worked in Java for a long time.
[03:49:57] <slashie> I will only know for certain when I have to maintain a big project
[03:50:31] <slashie> So far it looks like it's easier to rewrite when things get out of control
[03:50:44] <slashie> But I like it. It's quick and fun

[11:54:41] <Marzo> Dominus: I am thinking that I will make the modified sound packs and put them on the site, with a big note on the front/news page telling about them, so people will download them before the version that actually makes them is done
[14:08:13] <Dominus> Marzo: sounds good
[14:08:29] <Dominus> call them V2
[14:09:29] <Dominus> IMO if we (or rather you) manage to squish the few "release block" bugs, we should release
[14:09:38] <Dominus> and release it as Exult 2.0
[14:09:42] <Dominus> seriously
[14:09:59] <Dominus> and to that sfx packs 2.0 match :)
[14:13:33] <Marzo> Sounds good to me
[14:14:06] <Marzo> We were going to release it as Exult 1.6, right?
[14:14:26] <Dominus> that would have been the next logical one
[14:14:26] <Marzo> So it was a higher version than the snapshots?
[14:14:55] <Dominus> yes, the even number release scheme
[14:15:05] <Dominus> and odd number development
[14:15:23] <Dominus> but after a dozen years we can go with 2.0 IMO
[14:15:26] <Marzo> Yes, I remember proposing that
[14:15:38] <Marzo> Well, 2.0 is still even :-p
[14:15:53] <Dominus> that it is
[14:16:24] <Dominus> I think we can brag a bit :)
[14:17:52] <Marzo> Moreover, if you look around, many open source projects are increasing whole units on every release
[14:18:06] <Dominus> and I propose we release and close every remaining bug along with it - clean slate...
[14:18:37] <Dominus> Exult is bug free now without fixing a single thing :)
[14:18:50] <Marzo> Ah, I was going to ask that
[14:19:15] <Marzo> By "close" you mean mark them as closed with a note "if this still happens in 2.0, please file a new bug report"
[14:20:04] <Dominus> yeah something like that :)
[14:20:39] <Dominus> though honestly there are not that many that fit that category.
[14:21:07] <Dominus> there are just a lot of fringe cases and stuff that is about missing schedules
[14:21:16] <Dominus> or not fully working schedules

[15:04:37] <slashie> Hey guys
[15:04:50] <slashie> Any tips how walking works, high level?
[15:05:22] <slashie> It seems there's a function to walk between two points and it schedules a lot of individual walk commands?
[15:05:32] <slashie> Based on pathfinding?

[16:51:48] --> slashie_ has joined #exult
[17:01:07] <slashie_> hehe ok Dominus :)
[17:01:21] <slashie_> I was also wondering, I know you guys are using SVN as the main repo,
[17:01:32] <slashie_> how do the other "non'official" git repos work?
[17:01:51] <slashie_> I was wondering if I should push my own, in order to track changes on git
[17:01:58] <slashie_> and then if all goes well submit a patch?

[17:17:17] <Dominus> Sorry slashie, I'm on and off atm. Evening time with the kids...
[17:17:27] <slashie_> dont worry :)
[17:17:41] <Dominus> The git repos are just svn2git mirrors
[17:18:12] <Dominus> More or less the same but got some differences in the revisions ;)
[17:18:55] <Dominus> Using such a mirror yourself is probably a good way to track your changes
[17:19:33] <slashie_> okk
[17:20:13] <Dominus> We don't mind ;)
[17:21:01] <-- Philantrop has left IRC (Quit: -)
[17:21:22] <Dominus> and a public git repo might be interesting to see what you are doing ;)

[23:38:31] <Marzo> wjp: One thing I have been trying to figuring out regarding git-svn is if it is possible to (and how to) convert all SVN tags and branches to git tags and branches and still be able to commit to the original SVN server
[23:41:42] <Marzo> Have you by any chance ever needed to do that?
[23:42:11] <Marzo> Oh, never mind — https://www.atlassian.com/git/tutorials/migrating-convert/
[23:42:17] <Marzo> It is a destructive operation
[23:45:30] <slashie__> why do we want to keep the original SVN server?
[23:45:58] <Marzo> We aren't migrating to Git (not yet, anyway)
[23:46:09] <Marzo> I just prefer to work on git nowadays
