[09:54:06] <Dominus> I wish we had and could enforce a default path in Windows... So much better on OS X and Linux ;)

[13:02:37] <Dominus> another story from my texas trip: I met Darren McDonald, aka Hobbit Dragon, who has a grave stone in U7 Skara Brae
[13:03:09] <Dominus> it's because he was the first to send in that he finished Ultima 6

[16:27:40] --> Malignant_Manor has joined #exult
[16:28:57] <Malignant_Manor> Dominus: You should be able to reproduce the magebane bug. I can. It doesn't check if the actor can speak.
[16:33:02] --> frob has joined #exult
[17:01:14] <Dominus> Malignant_Manor: I don't know why but it just doesn't happen for me. I tried a bit ...
[17:01:41] <Dominus> But Malignant_Manor can you reproduce the MT32 crash?
[17:02:18] <Malignant_Manor> I don't have an mt-32 but I tried mt-32 and mt-32emu and had no crash.
[17:02:34] <Malignant_Manor> Does the crash happen in SDL 1.2?
[17:02:46] <Dominus> Using Midi and setting conversion to MT32 should trigger it before my "fix"
[17:03:14] <Dominus> Happens with both SDL versions
[17:04:06] <Dominus> so you did try it before my fix commit?
[17:23:37] <Malignant_Manor> I tried it before your fix with SDL 1.2
[17:24:54] --> GitHub has joined #exult
[17:24:54] <GitHub> [exult] malignantmanor pushed 1 new commit to master: https://git.io/voCiS
[17:24:54] <GitHub> exult/master c6be8cf Malignant Manor: * actors.cc: fix #1947 Frost Serpents Shout During MageBane Attack
[17:24:54] <-- GitHub has left #exult
[17:58:21] <Malignant_Manor> I just tried SDL 2 and have no crash.
[18:01:08] <Dominus> I'm pretty sure it is unrelated to SDL.
[18:02:22] <Dominus> Can you send me a "bad" Windows build (mgmt.mid not at index 26)? I want to try with my MT32 whether I can reproduce it
[18:02:47] <Dominus> By email or on dropbox or anywhere
[18:02:52] <Dominus> Not dcc ;)
[18:21:38] <Malignant_Manor> Dominus: I just sent you an email.
[18:27:36] <Dominus> not arrived yet...
[18:27:56] <Dominus> hope you didn't send to the sourceforge one. it seems they filter stuff
[18:28:15] <Malignant_Manor> I did and got a failure message in my spam folder
[18:28:26] <Dominus> oops :)
[18:35:36] <Dominus> Malignant_Manor: not that it is really needed and I don't want to send you on a wild goos chase, but do you think:
[18:36:16] <Dominus> 1. that it might be usefull for the installer to check whether there is a /STATIC/USECODE file in the path given in the installer
[18:36:48] <Dominus> 2. possible to add it to the current installer software/version we use?
[18:37:50] <Malignant_Manor> It should be able to check if a file exists. It has been quite awhile since I did much with Inno Installer.
[18:38:51] <Dominus> maybe I should write it down as a feature request :)
[18:43:36] * Dominus needs to look up how to set midi device in the cfg...
[18:45:09] <Malignant_Manor> You just change it in the menu.
[18:46:16] <Dominus> not the driver, the device that needs to be set in <win32_device> (unless you use the midi mapper)
[18:50:06] <Dominus> ok, not crashing in Wine
[18:50:46] <Dominus> *and* surprisingly, I can use my MT32 through USB in Wine. Didn't think that would work
[18:51:38] <Malignant_Manor> I guess I don't have the roms installed for Exult on this computer. MT32Emu wasn't used.
[19:03:26] <Dominus> odd, on my Windows XP VM it doesn't use the correct midi device even though it is set...
[19:04:56] <Dominus> I've beat it into submission and it finally used my mt32
[19:05:01] <Dominus> but it doesn't crash
[19:05:23] <Dominus> marzo, you don't have a real mt32 device either, right?
[19:08:06] <Malignant_Manor> Dominus: GCC may not have this crash.
[19:08:25] <Dominus> true
[19:08:33] <Malignant_Manor> You could try cross compiling for Win32 and testing in the VM
[19:08:57] <Dominus> I gave up on cross compiling from OS X...
[19:10:14] <Malignant_Manor> Compiler: gcc, version: 4.6.2
[19:10:31] <Malignant_Manor> GCC 6.1 released [2016-04-27]
[19:10:50] <Malignant_Manor> GCC 4.6.2 released [2011-10-26]
[19:10:50] <Dominus> hmm, I got to try whether it also happens with a 32bit build...
[19:14:33] <Dominus> ok, crashes as well
[19:15:13] <Dominus> Marzo, it would be good to know if it happens on linux at all. right now it points at OS X only...
[19:15:58] <Dominus> happens in both CoreAudio and CoreMidi (CoreAudio is for normal Midi and CoreMidi is for Midi devices)
[19:30:10] <Dominus> Or it is clang that acts up...
