[00:08:03] --> SB-X has joined #exult
[00:08:15] * SB-X looks around.
[00:09:10] * SB-X greets everyone.
[00:09:41] <SB-X> Is anyone alive in here? :-)
[00:10:59] <-- Dark-Star has left IRC ()
[00:11:14] <SB-X> :/
[00:15:14] <Curiousis> maybe
[00:20:37] <Curiousis> You may have gotten my e-mail from Dominus. I'm trying to write some user guides for Exult Studio.
[00:26:48] <SB-X> oi
[00:26:49] <SB-X> hi
[00:26:54] <SB-X> i replied just a few minutes ago
[00:27:50] <SB-X> my mail was kind of useless, because i just stated the obvious
[00:28:28] <SB-X> unless you don't agree that it could be done in HTML
[00:29:00] <Curiousis> I agree html is ideal... though right now I'm writing in microsoft word for ease of use. HTML is multiplatform so its great
[00:29:39] <Curiousis> I was wondering if you wanted to look at the ten pages I've wrote so far, give a suggestion if you think I'm in the right track here
[00:30:51] <SB-X> well i'm not on the team
[00:30:55] <SB-X> but sure
[00:31:27] <Curiousis> e-mail?
[00:31:52] <SB-X> sbx
[00:31:53] <SB-X> @
[00:31:55] <SB-X> netzero.net
[00:33:42] <Curiousis> can you take microsoft word? or want text?
[00:33:50] <SB-X> hmm
[00:33:59] <SB-X> i dont know, i have abiword maybe that will work
[00:34:14] <SB-X> whatever you think is best
[01:08:10] <SB-X> looks good
[01:08:47] <SB-X> Except for a few grammer things I can't see any problems, but I have not used ES in a long time.
[01:10:06] <SB-X> What I really like is that you're describing the egg and schedule types, you don't see those things described in much detail very often.
[02:06:41] <SB-X> got to go for now
[02:06:42] * SB-X waves.

[12:13:47] <Darke> Greetings.
[12:13:51] <Curiousis> hello
[12:14:35] <Curiousis> You may have gotten my e-mail from Dominus, I'm attempting to write a bit of an Exult Studio guide.
[12:15:20] * Darke ponders and seems to remember something about that, yes. "How far have you gotten?"
[12:15:43] <Darke> Or are you still in the 'what does this thing do?' stage? *grin*
[12:15:50] <Curiousis> well about 13 pages so far, just stuff like how to make building and how to write and place eggs
[12:16:13] <Darke> Neat. Sounds like you're being rather thorough. *grin*
[12:16:54] <Curiousis> I was wondering if you wanted to take a look at what I wrote so far, maybe help me check for accuracy.
[12:17:07] <Curiousis> Maybe answer a few little questions too
[12:18:20] <Darke> I'm not sure I'd be of any help with the proof reading bit, I've not actually touched exult studio more then a quick glance in the first few months of it's existance. *grin* But I'll certainly try to answer any questions, and I'm sure the others will read the logs and 'reply' when they join the channel.
[12:19:31] <Curiousis> What mainly has me curious with monster spawns is why some creatures seem to always come out comatose when placed. Trolls never do anything when placed with a monster egg, but ethereal monsters always listen
[12:22:04] <Darke> Sorry, I can't help you with that. I think it might be a case of "that's what the datafiles are telling us" though. *Grin*
[12:22:21] <Curiousis> Thats what I thought as well
[12:23:38] <Curiousis> I'm also a little unsure on the concept behind the "hatched" flag
[12:24:39] <Darke> Doesn't it just mean the egg's been triggered?
[12:26:07] <Curiousis> Thats what I thought, I just thought it seemed weird to be listed with nocturnal, one-time only and auto-reset
[12:31:52] * Darke nods. Does sound odd.
[13:03:22] * Darke pawwaves. Must sleep now, night!

[14:08:04] <artaxerxes> just came back from holidays. wanted to pop in and say hello.
[14:08:23] <artaxerxes> any big things for Exult in the last 2 weeks ?
[14:09:13] <Kirben> no, not much changed in last two weeks.
[14:09:59] <Kirben> Just a little exult code cleanup and minor exult studio addition
[14:10:01] <artaxerxes> today's my second annyversary so I won't be able to stay long...
[14:10:20] <artaxerxes> I read that in the forum
[14:10:42] <artaxerxes> I've also worked on a scenario for a game using ES
[14:11:47] <Kirben> Something similar to sourceforge island ?
[14:11:59] <artaxerxes> nope, not at all
[14:16:07] <artaxerxes> anyways, it's a work in progress so I'll post a link when enough work is done
