[11:29:47] <fingolfin> hi
[11:29:52] <wjp> hi
[11:34:48] <fingolfin> he, did you read the last email on the ML ? :)
[11:35:14] <wjp> "Exult Suggestions" or "Gump change" ?
[11:36:16] <fingolfin> suggestions
[11:36:19] <fingolfin> just replied
[11:36:27] <fingolfin> he claims to have followed exult for a long time
[11:36:48] <fingolfin> yet he asks about multiplayer support, when we even have it in the FAQ and were asked this a couple of dozen times :)
[11:36:51] <wjp> and he never saw the multiplayer discussions?
[11:36:57] <wjp> exactly :-)
[11:36:58] <fingolfin> yeah :)
[11:37:21] <wjp> oh, and he even wants it before we go beta
[11:37:33] <fingolfin> lol
[11:37:55] <wjp> the name sounds familiar, though
[11:38:08] <fingolfin> the number of off-topic discusion in the forum is quit high me thinks
[11:38:15] <wjp> yeah, it is
[11:38:49] <fingolfin> he, Nadir seems to be a bit pissed, too :)
[11:39:10] <fingolfin> hm, unmentioned exult team member?? I guess I should read a bit to know what is going on here :)
[11:39:40] <wjp> try the "blackrock and exult" thread :-)
[11:39:52] <wjp> (in which there is absolutely no mention of exult, btw)
[11:40:12] <fingolfin> I'll check it out
[11:42:03] <fingolfin> ughm german curses with wrong grammar
[11:42:11] <wjp> :-)
[11:43:08] <wjp> hmm, something strange in the FAQ entry you pointed too: "I continue working on , in ..."
[11:43:18] <wjp> it sounds like there should be an 'exult' before the comma
[11:43:47] <wjp> (and in the text version there is)
[11:44:14] <fingolfin> hmm
[11:44:21] <wjp> have fun debugging the .xsl ;-)
[11:44:33] <fingolfin> ugh
[11:48:16] <wjp> or we could just replace the <Exult/> tag by "Exult"
[11:48:32] <wjp> (other <cite>'s have that too)
[11:48:32] <fingolfin> I just looked at the xsl
[11:48:49] <fingolfin> and it seems I made cite to really cite what is in there, but i maybe should translate the <exult>, yeah
[11:49:32] <fingolfin> hm actually
[11:49:39] <fingolfin> it should be easy to fix it, I believe
[11:50:05] <fingolfin> but I have no XSL engine to test it, so I will email my proposed fix to dominus so the can test it:)
[11:50:32] <wjp> it looks like that's the only place we use the <exult/> tag in a <cite>, btw
[11:51:42] <fingolfin> well, still..
[11:53:12] <fingolfin> hmm. I am trying to figure out how to make a shared lib of mesa over here; it wouldn't be that hard, *if* they wouldn't abuse libtool in a not-so-portable fashion
[11:53:40] <wjp> they use libtool in a non-portable way? oh now that's smart...
[11:54:02] <wjp> wasn't the entire point of libtool portability?
[11:54:23] <fingolfin> yeah
[11:54:39] <fingolfin> but if you abuse some of it features in a way that may work on some OS, but not on all...
[11:54:50] <fingolfin> or maybe the problem is that this abuse works but only with libtool 1.4
[11:54:55] <fingolfin> or 1.3 ? :)
[11:56:50] <wjp> hmm, Jeff's changes to gump mode seem to work very unpredictably
[11:58:22] <wjp> it only actually pauses once somebody makes an attack, so monsters still continue to walk toward you, and only freeze once they actually want to hit you
[12:00:54] <fingolfin> hm
[12:11:08] <wjp> note to self: do not play with powderkegs unless godmode is on ;-)
[12:13:32] <fingolfin> =)
[12:16:23] * wjp toats ethereal monster with >40 kegs
[12:16:27] <wjp> toasts, even
[12:16:31] <wjp> woohoo :-)
