[04:36:51] <Malignant_Manor> I can't seem to get BilinearPlus to work. Exult seems to crash every time I set it through the video gump or the cfg. (tested in 32 bit XP with Kirben's snapshot)

[22:35:52] <Dominus> now I've got some SI original savegames... only need to find or create an invisible ring... Hopefully one of the savegames features one :)
[22:36:10] <wjp> all my savegames were post-banes :-(
[22:36:30] <Dominus> oh, that's not helpful :)
[22:36:47] <wjp> oh, by the way: we should replace the screenshot on our front page
[22:36:57] <wjp> and also add it to sf.net/projects/exult while we're at it
[22:37:03] <wjp> (compare with sf.net/projects/pentagram )
[22:37:24] <Dominus> feel free to do that... :)
[22:37:31] <Dominus> I'll see about it tomorrow or on sunday
[22:38:22] <wjp> due to the scale most screenshots aren't particularly spectacular when shown at that size
[22:38:56] <wjp> maybe the SI starting scene with the wrecked ship is sufficiently recognizable
[22:39:01] <Dominus> wow, these are really a lot savegames for SI... 112... that will be fun to look through...
[22:42:13] <Dominus> I think most screenshots are ok, but we could have much larger and newer, shiny ones :)
[22:43:31] <Dominus> But the main Exult menu definitely needs a new screenshot, with all the games and mods option, as well as a mods selection screen
[22:44:01] <wjp> I meant mainly for on the front pag
[22:44:02] <wjp> e
[22:44:44] <Dominus> yes, that screenshot is very unimpressive
[22:46:41] <Dominus> if you have a good idea for replacing it... I'm a little undecided when I look at the ones we have
[22:48:02] <wjp> well, SI start scene maybe
[22:48:17] <wjp> but not the current one
[22:48:26] <wjp> that's too dark and with too much dialogue
[22:48:37] <Dominus> yup, my thought as well, the current one is much too dark
[22:56:25] <Dominus> hmm, I cannot reproduce Malignant's problem with bilinear plus on Windows XP running in VM
[23:00:58] <Dominus> thank jeff for Exult Studio... at least this way I was able to find the correct shape for the invisibility ring quite fast (so I knwo what to create in Dosbox...)
[23:01:26] <Dominus> I could have used google, but I'm a man, I don't ask for directions!!! woof woof woof
[23:02:59] <wjp> I get a BilinearPlus crash too
[23:03:17] <Dominus> what settings did you have?
[23:03:20] <wjp> 320x200 -> 640x400 without AR correction
[23:03:39] <Dominus> windows or linux?
[23:03:50] <wjp> ... :-)
[23:04:02] <wjp> linux
[23:04:19] <Dominus> :) I was wondering whether you tried it ina VM :)
[23:05:51] <Dominus> yes, crashes here too
[23:06:03] <Dominus> on OS X :)
[23:06:45] <Dominus> unless you are investigating, I'll assign it to Colourless
[23:10:56] <Dominus> works in game, crashes in pre games setup
[23:17:25] <wjp> strangely with 320x200 -> 640x480 with fill mode centre and AR correction enabled, I get black borders on the right/bottom sides
[23:18:18] <Dominus> is this in game setup or exult menu setup? The crash only happens for me in the exult menu setup
[23:18:42] <wjp> with those settings I get no crash
[23:20:21] * Dominus is annoyed... now needs to create money to train... bug hunting with the original is annoying
[23:25:08] <-- ParuNexus has left IRC (Ping timeout: 245 seconds)
[23:25:10] <Dominus> he he
[23:25:42] <Dominus> the list field invisibility "bug" is worse in the original
[23:26:15] <Dominus> or probably the same, the invisible companion just disappears... in the game I just lost Dupre...
[23:26:15] <wjp> http://www.usecode.org/exult/bp.png vs http://www.usecode.org/exult/b.png
[23:26:25] <wjp> hehe, oops
[23:26:59] <Dominus> so, I'll file this as working the same as the original :)
[23:27:14] <Dominus> or should I move it over to feature requests?
[23:27:23] <wjp> FR sounds good
[23:28:01] <Dominus> will do and I'll attach the savegame from the original as well, so anyone can have a go at it
[23:32:07] <Dominus> ah yes, the invisible companions stand right where you left them but as they are no longer in the party you can't even see their outline anymore...
[23:32:22] <Dominus> maybe a job for Marzo's SIfixes
[23:32:37] <Dominus> wjp, I noticed the border problem as well
[23:34:26] <-- shazza has left IRC (Ping timeout: 255 seconds)
[23:34:37] <-- shazza` has left IRC (Ping timeout: 252 seconds)
[23:35:10] <wjp> quite possibly related to the crash
[23:41:21] <wjp> time to go; good night
[23:41:34] <Dominus> me too, good night everyone
[23:41:48] <Dominus> Kirben thanks for fixing my goof up, btw
[23:56:21] <Marzo> Dominus: Re: the invisible thingy
[23:56:32] <Marzo> If I had been earlier, I could have said it was from the original
[23:56:54] * Dominus is actually still here but shouldn't...
[23:56:58] <Marzo> It is particularly painful in the post-Freedom tests you can do for Erstam
[23:56:59] <Dominus> :)
[23:57:24] <Dominus> so.. invisibility can be a real pain...
[23:57:26] <Marzo> (where the party members are get teleported around and leave the party)
[23:57:39] <Marzo> I put that behavior in for a reason :-p
[23:58:51] <Dominus> oh well... it was nice looking it up in the original...
[23:59:13] <Dominus> reminded me again why Exult is so great! :)
