[03:16:15] --> Sheng_Gradilla has joined #exult
[03:16:20] <Sheng_Gradilla> good evening :)
[03:17:49] <Baastuul> hallo
[03:19:05] <Sheng_Gradilla> :)
[03:57:38] --> driaac has joined #exult
[03:58:07] <driaac> I have the ultima collection cd and have installed exult on linux perfectly fine, I uhh, need to know how to install the game on linux
[03:58:43] <driaac> because when I type exult in my terminal, it opens up, but I get an error.
[03:59:16] <Sheng_Gradilla> ok
[03:59:48] <Sheng_Gradilla> copy the U7 directory from the CD to any place you like
[03:59:54] <driaac> okay, done
[04:00:15] <Sheng_Gradilla> and edit the exulf.cfg file
[04:00:34] <Sheng_Gradilla> set the corresponding path in that file
[04:01:06] <Sheng_Gradilla> in your home directory there should be a file called .exult.cfg
[04:01:17] <Sheng_Gradilla> with a dot at the beginning
[04:01:22] <driaac> k, looking
[04:01:43] <Sheng_Gradilla> how experienced are you with Linux?
[04:02:21] <driaac> I'm novice, but I can move around and edit stuff.
[04:03:34] <Sheng_Gradilla> did you know that files whose name begins with . are never shown in file listing?
[04:03:42] <driaac> yeah i ls-a
[04:03:48] <Sheng_Gradilla> ok
[04:03:57] <driaac> i'm looking at it
[04:04:20] <driaac> okay, i guess i just change the paths now
[04:04:26] <Sheng_Gradilla> yea
[04:04:50] <Sheng_Gradilla> what's blackgate's path set to?
[04:05:19] <Sheng_Gradilla> I think by default it's set to "." (current directory0
[04:05:34] <driaac> yes
[04:05:37] <driaac> path is .
[04:06:04] <Sheng_Gradilla> you can set it to the path where you copied the game
[04:06:46] <Sheng_Gradilla> that way you can issue the command "exult" anywhere, and it will be able to find U7 without trouble
[04:16:56] <driaac> hmmm
[04:17:29] <Sheng_Gradilla> is there something wrong?
[04:18:55] <driaac> I'v edited the file but i get this fatal signal: Segmentation Fault (SDL Parachute Deployed)
[04:19:12] <driaac> so the path for serpentisle and blackisle both are correct
[04:19:33] <Sheng_Gradilla> are you able to run other SDL games?
[04:20:37] <driaac> This is the only game I've really tried to run. I am not familiar with SDL..
[04:21:29] <Sheng_Gradilla> show me all the messages exult gives you
[04:22:05] <Sheng_Gradilla> in most situations, SDL games output "Segmentation Fault (SDL Parachute Deployed)" upon crashing
[04:22:16] <Sheng_Gradilla> so it does not tell me much
[04:22:24] <driaac> there isn't really any other error
[04:22:57] <Sheng_Gradilla> did you compile it yourself?
[04:23:09] <driaac> i ran an rpm
[04:23:28] <driaac> i'm running Fedora core 1
[04:23:29] <Sheng_Gradilla> for your exact distribution?
[04:23:33] <Sheng_Gradilla> ok
[04:23:33] <driaac> no
[04:23:43] <driaac> should i get the source and compile?
[04:24:11] <Sheng_Gradilla> didn't you get the rpm for Fedora Core 1?
[04:24:36] <driaac> well, I just grabbed a random rpm
[04:24:42] <driaac> it seemed to sinall just fine.
[04:25:00] <Sheng_Gradilla> http://exult.sourceforge.net/download.php
[04:25:18] <Sheng_Gradilla> did you get it from that place?
[04:26:12] <driaac> yes.
[04:26:14] <driaac> okay
[04:26:22] <driaac> i just tried to download and install it again
[04:26:27] <driaac> making sure it was the core fedora
[04:26:28] <Sheng_Gradilla> now lets check something else
[04:26:31] <driaac> and it said
[04:26:35] <driaac> package already installed
[04:26:44] <Sheng_Gradilla> rpm always says that
[04:26:49] <Sheng_Gradilla> try with --force
[04:27:20] <driaac> k
[04:28:51] <Sheng_Gradilla> did it work now?
[04:31:41] <Sheng_Gradilla> did you crash? O_o
[04:33:34] <driaac> it jsut says
[04:33:40] <driaac> preparing installation
[04:33:49] <driaac> i assume it did

[05:05:11] --> Baastuul_ has joined #Exult
[05:05:35] <-- Baastuul has left IRC (Nick collision from services.)
[05:05:36] --- Baastuul_ is now known as Baastuul
[05:09:31] <Sheng_Gradilla> driaac: did exult run for you already?
[05:09:51] <Sheng_Gradilla> if not, to check the filenames in the U7 directory
[07:21:29] <driaac> sup now?
[07:21:39] <driaac> it didnt run
[07:21:58] <Sheng_Gradilla> check the filenames in the U7 directory
[07:22:36] <Sheng_Gradilla> I don't know if exult can handle the files with names in upper case
[07:22:51] <Sheng_Gradilla> are there any upper case letters in the filenames?
[07:24:13] <driaac> yes
[07:25:17] <Sheng_Gradilla> Hmm...
[07:25:28] <Sheng_Gradilla> copy and paste some filenames here
[07:25:35] <driaac> do I NEED to have serpent isle installed too?
[07:25:43] <Sheng_Gradilla> no
[07:25:46] <driaac> k
[07:25:50] <driaac> ENDGAME.EXE
[07:25:58] <driaac> INSTALL.PRM
[07:25:59] <Sheng_Gradilla> hmm...
[07:26:03] <driaac> MAINMENU.EXE
[07:26:06] <Sheng_Gradilla> try zipping them all
[07:26:10] <Sheng_Gradilla> with the zip utility
[07:26:14] <Sheng_Gradilla> then unzip
[07:26:21] <driaac> so like, bzip
[07:26:27] <Sheng_Gradilla> no
[07:26:27] <Sheng_Gradilla> zip
[07:26:33] <Sheng_Gradilla> bzip is something else
[07:26:43] <driaac> k, would i zip *
[07:26:57] <Sheng_Gradilla> first check if you have zip
[07:27:30] <driaac> yeah
[07:27:31] <driaac> i got zip
[07:27:47] <Sheng_Gradilla> k
[07:28:45] <driaac> how would i zip the entire directory?
[07:29:11] <Sheng_Gradilla> zip -r file.zip directory
[07:29:44] <driaac> okay done
[07:29:47] <driaac> now do i unzip
[07:30:10] <Sheng_Gradilla> yes
[07:30:21] <Sheng_Gradilla> I hope it works :P
[07:30:59] <driaac> nope
[07:49:14] <Ember> unzip -LL is what you want to force unzip to output all files lowercase.
[07:49:35] <Ember> It shouldn't matter though, exult should handle both ALLCAPS and lowercase.
[07:50:19] * Ember curls up and returns to her semi-idle state. Surreality is calling.
[07:51:07] <driaac> alright, thanks
[08:10:45] <-- Sheng_Gradilla has left IRC ("zzz")
[08:34:28] <driaac> I got it to work, I just have to type exult like 8 times to get it to go.
[08:34:28] <driaac> he he
[08:34:31] <driaac> whatever works
[08:34:37] <driaac> thanksf ro all the help
[08:45:21] <Ember> How bizarre.

[12:08:28] --- ChanServ gives channel operator status to Fingolfin
[12:46:03] <Fingolfin> hmm
[12:46:12] * Fingolfin just got a virus mail with sender = Dominu
[12:46:21] <Fingolfin> either he's infected, or they just use his mail address :-)

[14:20:10] --- ChanServ gives channel operator status to Dominus
[14:20:36] <Dominus> hi
[14:20:48] * Dominus is not infected
[14:21:03] <Dominus> at least not with a computer virus
[14:21:35] <Dominus> Fingolfin: I got virus' email from myself already
[14:22:49] <Dominus> and I'm not using one of those typical infectable mail programs that could have my email address in it (nor are they anymore on my system)
[14:25:12] <Dominus> I regulary get infected mail from fellow Exult devs. takhisisii@, triforce@ and so on...
[14:25:48] <Dominus> triforce@merlin.something is one of Colourless' old ones that is not even in use anymore
[14:26:03] * Dominus thinks that at least
[14:26:14] <Colourless> :-)
[14:27:14] <Dominus> I'm quite sick of spam now
[14:27:34] <Dominus> my @tesionmail.de address will soon have to die, I guess
[14:28:02] <Colourless> spam is the reason my merlin address is now gone
[14:28:23] <Dominus> I thought it was something like that
[14:28:48] <Dominus> I just didn't have the stomach to change my main-address yet
[14:30:05] <Dominus> next time I'm gonna use some alias' addresses for Amazon and Ebay and some forums to see where most of my spam comes from. for example dominus.amazon@someprovider.name
[14:32:03] <Dominus> Colourless: are you using the 4.3 catalyst already? if not don't bother dl it. I had to go back to 4.2 as I experienced strange crashes with it
[14:33:09] <Colourless> yes I am using them
[14:33:33] <Colourless> though i've only played maybe 2 hours of 3d games since getting them
[14:35:15] <Dominus> I put them on yesterday and my system behaved strangely. Suddenly my control (mouse+keyboard) was gone, then my monitor went off like it does when it goes into power saving and wouldn't wake up. my system didn't reboot but just sat there and did nothing until I pressed the reset
[14:35:29] <Dominus> it did this 4 times and now I went back to 4.2
[14:35:41] <Colourless> something obviously is amiss with your system
[14:35:49] <Dominus> :-P
[14:36:02] <Dominus> yep
[14:36:34] <Dominus> some odd incompatibility obviously
[14:38:45] <Colourless> everything seems find for me
[14:39:45] * Dominus shrugs. Let's see what 4.4 will do. maybe these will work

[21:37:42] <WishStone> An Lor Xen
[21:38:16] <wjp_> vas sanct lor is the UW one
[21:38:35] * WishStone wonders about the ols Sosorians
[21:38:57] <WishStone> Poor them, basicly they would be talking, innocently saying something and 4*POOF* something happened :P
[21:40:35] <wjp_> well, the magic syllables aren't the only part of the spell :-)
[21:41:20] <WishStone> Depends what Ultima...
[21:41:27] <WishStone> In Underworld, they where, no reggies needed.
[21:41:57] <WishStone> Only mana. So any potentual mage was in danger ... (or endangering... *points at someone while chatting and said person busts into flame* oops...)
[21:42:12] <wjp_> you did need to have the runes
[21:43:01] <WishStone> Oh, true ;D
[21:44:00] <wjp_> but you did not actually have to learn the spell
[21:44:14] <wjp_> (in game, that is; you obviously had to learn it yourself :-) )
[21:44:30] <WishStone> ;D
[21:45:24] * wjp_ remembers correctly guessing the "water walk" spell in UW2 :-)
[21:48:17] <WishStone> I learned that one and was ratehr proud of myself for doing so ;D
