[08:02:12] <zhentil> hello, wjp
[08:03:26] <wjp> hi
[08:07:53] <zhentil> compiled exult without timidity (actually, accidentally deleted timidity).. same problems with the stuttering, even though no music plays.. what does exult try to do if timidity was not found by configure?
[08:08:31] <wjp> it should just disable timidity support
[08:08:33] <zhentil> hmm
[08:08:35] <zhentil> SDL: Audio timeout - buggy audio driver? (disabled)
[08:08:35] <zhentil> audio: Bad file descriptor
[08:08:47] <wjp> that sounds like a problem
[08:08:58] <zhentil> it could be my sound card.. or, it could be freebsd's audio driver
[08:09:06] <wjp> yeah
[08:10:29] <zhentil> I have an onboard sound component I could try.. probably would have to recompile my kernel for that
[08:10:52] <wjp> a google search on "freebsd SDL audio timeout" shows some possibly relevant pages
[08:13:34] <wjp> hmm, not that relevant, though :/
[08:16:27] <zhentil> I'll check it out.. Writing up a post to a freebsd newsgroup

[08:30:03] <zhentil> Alright, I've worked on it for enough tonight :)
[08:30:14] <zhentil> I should have another person to compare notes to in about a week
[08:30:57] * wjp nods
[08:30:58] <zhentil> I will let you know how it goes
[08:31:10] <wjp> ok, thx
[08:31:19] <zhentil> Talk to you later.

[08:32:28] <wjp> hi
[08:32:29] <Jammet> Good morning =)
[08:32:40] <wjp> haven't seen you in a while :-)
[08:32:50] --- wjp is now known as wjp|work
[08:32:51] <wjp|work> brb
[08:33:36] <Jammet> Oh =)
[08:33:39] <Jammet> You remember me?
[08:33:44] * Jammet smiles. =)
[08:33:55] <Jammet> I'm on the mailinglist, but more passively. Was here yesterday. I'll wait.
[08:40:42] <Jammet> Tum de dum ...
[08:40:56] <Jammet> Tum de dum ...
[08:43:22] <Jammet> Tum de dum ...
[08:47:38] <Jammet> La la la ...
[08:52:18] <wjp|work> *grin*
[08:52:19] <wjp|work> back
[08:56:14] <Jammet> =) Hi...
[08:59:33] <Jammet> I compiled Exult CVS yesterday with a lot of help here.
[09:00:31] <Jammet> Everything works. Music, Video... but no sound effects play. Any idea? I got both exult.flx exult_bg.flx exult_si.flx jmsfx.flx jmsisfx.flx midisfx.flx in my /home/jammet/exult/data dir.
[09:00:37] <Jammet> Ah... never mind just got that to work also.
[09:00:38] <Jammet> The config file lacked the paths to those files.

[10:25:44] <wjp|work> hi
[10:25:55] <psyquark> hi
[10:28:20] <SharpTooth> Hi.
[10:29:52] <psyquark> is there anyway to activate the mandrake root eggs on monk isle? they don't apear no matter how much i check
[10:30:24] <wjp|work> IIRC, there's a monk who tells you when they are active
[10:30:42] <wjp|work> (in fact, they're internally activated by that monk)
[10:31:57] <psyquark> ah will try that
[11:09:30] <psyquark> ah well, i might have not activated the spellbook chore, no time to check tonight, exult just crashed and it is late

[13:40:38] --> Dominus has joined #exult
[13:41:06] <Colourless> hi
[13:41:14] <Dominus> hi
[13:41:26] <Colourless> :-)
[13:42:06] <Dominus> another idea for the sf island: an NPC which is a bunny with sharp teeth :-)
[13:42:31] <Colourless> :-)
[13:43:14] <SharpTooth> Hi. <bow>
[13:43:36] <Dominus> I wish that Studio works some day on Win32 - I would like to do some work on SF-Island....
[13:43:45] * SharpTooth blushfluffs and paws the ground. "Erm... maybe." <fangygrin>
[13:44:30] <SharpTooth> Dominus: You could always convert to linux. <grin>
[13:45:19] <Dominus> SharpTooth: the idea is to have all of the team and contributors on the island and Kirben already expressed that hed rather be some animal than whatever I thought. And you being a cute little bunny would be appropriate, right? :-)
[13:45:46] <Colourless> yeah it is
[13:45:47] <Dominus> and me converting to Linux.... maybe some day but not soon
[13:46:23] <SharpTooth> Dominus: <grin> Indeed it would be appropriate.
[13:46:37] <matto> good morning!
[13:46:41] <Dominus> was fun reading the logs yesterday. "difficult birth" as we would say in Germany
[13:46:51] <Colourless> good morning ;-)
[13:46:54] <Dominus> hi matto!
[13:47:00] <SharpTooth> Morning. <bow>
[13:47:11] <matto> I haven't "woken up" this early for quite some time.. hehe
[13:47:19] <SharpTooth> Dominus: Erm. Yes. <grin>
[13:47:20] <Colourless> you do not bow to such people ;-)
[13:47:30] <matto> hehe.. hey!
[13:47:35] <SharpTooth> Colourless: Salute perhaps? <grin>
[13:48:05] <Dominus> no the proper greeting is: matto!!!!!! (if Im not mistaken) .-)
[13:48:14] <Colourless> MATTO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
[13:48:21] <Dominus> :-)
[13:48:24] <matto> hehehe.. yes, you have it right
[13:48:26] <Colourless> must be in capitals
[13:48:51] <matto> SharpTooth: I don't believe I've seen you in here before. Are you new to exult or just new to the channel?
[13:49:22] <Dominus> I believe matto hasnt looked very often into the channel lately
[13:49:54] <matto> that very well may be
[13:49:58] <SharpTooth> matto: Relatively new to the channel. I've been on here intermittently for the last month? IIRC. As to hanging around exult. I tend to go by the name "Patrick Burke" in most circles. <grin>
[13:50:20] <Dominus> SharpTooth is the missing person on http://exult.sourceforge.net/about.php
[13:51:16] <matto> the missing person, eh?
[13:51:27] <SharpTooth> <snicker> Perhaps I should 'join' the project with this handle (I've had a SharpTooth account on sourceforge for a while now).
[13:51:50] * Dominus whispers to matto: he is one of those versed in the secret language of the Necronomicon! or was it Usecode? Dont remember but the result is the same: he is quite mad
[13:52:15] <matto> hehe
[13:52:26] <matto> Dominus: your apostrophes are creating havoc with my version of xchat
[13:52:34] <Dominus> argh
[13:52:38] * matto grumbles and wonders when they'll fix the problem
[13:53:01] <Dominus> I know some people have problems with it but it's a habit not easy to quit
[13:53:02] * SharpTooth noddlenods. "I'm also a cute bunny rabbit. <ponderfluff> Or at least this incarnation of me is." <innocentwiggle>
[13:53:21] <matto> SharpTooth: hahahaha very amusing actions
[13:53:54] * SharpTooth considers he fulfills the 'quite mad' qualifications perfectly.
[13:54:06] <Dominus> hehe
[13:54:17] <matto> hmm looks like I am using the latest x-chat already ... no bug fixes
[13:54:26] <Dominus> I always wanted to compare the Necronomicon to Usecode
[13:54:37] <Colourless> well, just blame dominus, for using non standard characters
[13:54:46] <Dominus> matto: perhaps file a bug report with xchat
[13:54:50] <SharpTooth> Dominus: The Necronomicon (or at least the copy of it a friend had) was more readable.
[13:54:51] <matto> hehe... taking the easy way out, eh?
[13:55:13] <matto> Dominus: what character are you using exactly anyway?
[13:55:24] <Dominus> I`m not using non standard characters. Im not!!!!
[13:55:28] <Dominus> :-)
[13:55:42] <Colourless> yes you are ;-)
[13:55:44] <matto> I can file a bug report but only if I can show them how to reproduce the problem
[13:56:22] <Dominus> Tell tehm to show up in the channel when Im here and I will show'em :-)
[13:57:23] <matto> well I doubt they will care about a bug if I tell them they have to do all the work to fix it :)
[13:57:36] <Dominus> true :-)
[13:58:09] <Colourless> :-)
[13:58:45] <Dominus> it's just easier to use that non standard apostroph than the standard one (one key press instead of two simultaneously) and that's why I'm used to it
[13:59:01] <matto> do you happen to know which ASCII value it corresponds to?
[13:59:05] <matto> I'm assuming it is ASCII ..
[13:59:12] <matto> I guess the answer is no? hehe
[13:59:14] <Dominus> no idea
[13:59:19] <matto> ...
[13:59:51] <Dominus> with which one do you have problems the ` or
[13:59:58] <Dominus> the ?
[14:00:10] <matto> I can see the ` just fine
[14:00:16] <matto> the latter one is the one that I can't see
[14:01:15] <Dominus> does a Hex value help you? It's B4
[14:02:18] <matto> B4, eh? ...
[14:02:35] <matto> that should be enough info to give to the x-chat guys ...
[14:02:43] <matto> "sending a 0xB4 character freaks out x-chat"
[14:02:52] <Colourless> might be unicode....
[14:04:26] <Colourless> it depends on what character set is being used
[14:04:31] <matto> Colourless: that's what I thought at first, but I believe IRC would only support generic ASCII
[14:06:10] <Colourless> well, lets find out :-)
[14:06:27] <matto> ok
[14:07:49] <Dominus> if that helps it's Alt+0180
[14:08:04] <Colourless> I can't paste the characters
[14:08:27] <matto> I can't seem to be able to do those alt codes either
[14:08:46] <Colourless> Alt-0 code are windows codes
[14:08:47] <Dominus> :-(
[14:08:54] <Dominus> ah, okay
[14:10:30] <Colourless>
[14:10:38] <Dominus> right
[14:10:43] <Dominus>
[14:10:50] <Colourless> it's alt-239
[14:11:36] <Colourless> that's the charactrs ascii value

[14:31:55] --> exultbot has joined #exult
[16:08:06] --> exultbot has joined #exult
[16:08:23] <wjp> all these ircd conversions aren't good for exultbot :/
[16:08:42] <Dominus> exultbot: where have you been?
[16:08:45] <Dominus> :-)
[16:09:44] <Dominus> btw, wjp: about all my asking for searchable logs, that is pretty useless when you can just look into google :-)
[16:09:59] <wjp> :-)
[16:10:47] <Colourless> exultbot, now with <a href="http://www.google.com/">search.</a> :-)
[16:11:14] <wjp> hehe :-)
[16:11:31] * SharpTooth checks google. I see what you mean.
[16:12:33] <Dominus> found that out when zeenith (or what he is called) asked me who did the old freebsd port and all I did was search for Exult and freebsd :-)
[16:15:32] <-- Colourless has left IRC (Ping timeout: 181 seconds)
[16:23:59] --> Colourless has joined #Exult
[16:26:17] <wjp> hmm, all the spell-casting logic is in the spellbook gump
[16:26:59] <wjp> moving that to spells.cc would make the spell-hotkeys a lot easier
[16:31:06] <Colourless> k
[16:35:12] --> SBXXBS has joined #exult
[17:16:27] <SharpTooth> I must disappear for the frailty known as 'sleep'. <grin> Bye!
[17:16:34] <Colourless> bye
[17:50:57] <Dominus> see you later, have to go now
[17:51:01] <wjp> bye
[17:51:04] <-- Dominus has left IRC ("got to play Exult now")
[18:00:15] <wjp> Colourless: does using WinCVS through ssh require a cmdline ssh client? (and if yes, where did you get one?)
[18:01:59] <Colourless> i think it does require a command line client. I can't remember where I got it from though (too long ago). I think I just searched for something like ssh win32 or some such
[18:02:22] * wjp nods
[18:02:23] <wjp> ok, thanks
[18:02:41] <wjp> so there aren't any tricky pitfalls?
[18:02:43] <Colourless> of course, I never use the wincvs gui, i always use the command line
[18:02:57] <Colourless> no, i wouldn't think there is any problems
[18:03:06] <wjp> good :-)
[18:03:30] <Colourless> i just set the following 2 command line paramters, and put wincvs and ssh in my path
[18:03:31] <Colourless> CVSROOT=:ext:colourles@cvs.exult.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/exult/exult
[18:03:31] <Colourless> CVS_RSH=ssh
[18:03:52] <wjp> same here
[18:04:24] <Colourless> i actually meant to say envrionment variables ;-)
[18:04:33] <Colourless> not command line parameters ;-)
[18:04:36] <wjp> heh, I missed that :-)
[18:14:33] --- SBXXBS is now known as SB-X
[18:16:16] <SB-X> does either of you notice a problem with NPCs sitting in recent version?
[18:16:41] <Colourless> can't say I do, but I don't play that much
[18:16:54] <SB-X> NPCs with Major Sit keep getting up and sitting back down
[18:17:05] <SB-X> like something is wrong with their chair
[18:17:07] <SB-X> :)
[18:17:30] <Colourless> :-)
[18:17:33] <SB-X> but it didn't do it in last release version
[18:17:36] <SB-X> I think
[18:30:19] <wjp> yes, kind of annoying
[18:31:07] <wjp> could you file a bugreport? Our bug tracker is at: http://sf.net/bugs/?group_id=2335
