[00:52:56] <Baastuul> :D
[00:56:34] <sbx> I like blue.
[00:56:51] <Baastuul> Blue belongs to the other network, though :D

[06:12:28] --- ChanServ gives channel operator status to Kirben
[06:23:01] <sbx> hi
[06:24:35] <Baastuul> hurro
[06:24:50] <Baastuul> Hey, Kirben... what part of Australia you from?
[06:48:38] <Kirben> Victoria
[06:49:07] <Baastuul> ahh... if you're wondering why I am asking, Kirben: http://baastuul.digital-focus.us/locations/ :)
[06:56:55] <sbx> What are those channels SorceryNET?
[06:58:50] <Baastuul> You mean what are they for?
[07:00:18] <sbx> yeah
[07:01:43] <sbx> ugh
[07:01:54] <sbx> A spider crawled out of a book and I don't know where it went.
[07:02:12] <sbx> I HATE spiders.
[07:02:48] <Baastuul> #Warcry = http://www.warcry.com/
[07:03:07] <Baastuul> #Exiles = Ex-Warcry members who got replaced due to inactivity
[07:03:18] <Baastuul> #Lummies = old members of Lumthemad.net
[07:12:24] <sbx> ah k that website explains it
[07:12:32] <sbx> the names just seemed odd to me
[07:13:34] <sbx> they don't have Neocron on the warcry network
[07:13:56] <sbx> One of the few MMORPG's I've played.
[07:14:50] <Baastuul> Yeah. That's because Neocron's fanbase is pretty small, from what I hear.
[07:15:01] <Baastuul> Not much of a demand for it and would cost too much bandwidth to the network to host another site.
[07:15:04] <Baastuul> And finding staff is a pain.
[07:16:14] <sbx> What about UO?
[07:16:37] <Baastuul> There was a UO site, I believe
[07:16:40] <Baastuul> but it fell into disrepair
[07:17:18] <sbx> and they tore down the ruins?
[07:17:56] <Baastuul> I think so
[07:18:13] <Baastuul> I used to work on the DAoC Warcry staff
[07:18:15] <Baastuul> I don't anymore though
[07:18:20] <Baastuul> I stopped playing DAoC August 10th, 2002
[07:19:53] <sbx> What was Lumthemad.net?
[07:20:05] --> Fl00der has joined #exult
[07:20:08] <Baastuul> a gaming rant site
[07:20:10] <Baastuul> Hiya, Fl00der
[07:20:19] <Fl00der> hiho baastuul :)
[07:20:22] <sbx> hi
[07:20:31] <Fl00der> and hi also to other fellows :)
[07:20:52] <sbx> Baastuul: Heh... I hate rant sites, unless it's me ranting.
[07:21:15] <sbx> was just curious... anything interesting happen there? must have for you to have a channel about it
[07:21:40] <Baastuul> Not really, to be honest. I sort of started visiting it when it started to go downhill.
[07:21:43] <Baastuul> Never really posted on the forums.
[07:21:54] <Baastuul> I just read some rants occasionally because they could be semi-entertaining.
[07:22:04] <Baastuul> I joined the channel to have some sort of a "presence" in the MMORPG community.
[07:22:12] <Baastuul> Well, outside of playing them.
[07:22:19] <Baastuul> I just idle in the channel now.
[07:23:22] <sbx> And map people. ;)
[07:23:34] <sbx> I havn't played many MMORPG's at all.
[07:23:52] <Fl00der> only mmporg what I have played is UO
[07:23:57] <sbx> But Neocron is fun.
[07:24:05] <Fl00der> MMORPG*
[07:24:20] <sbx> I never played UO either.
[07:24:27] <Fl00der> shame
[07:24:33] * Fl00der slaps sbx to face
[07:25:02] <Fl00der> must exprience every ultimas :P
[07:26:12] <sbx> ouch?
[07:26:19] * sbx slaps back
[07:26:25] <sbx> UO is ultima? :)
[07:26:26] <Baastuul> EA is really abusing the Ultima name nowadays.
[07:26:30] <sbx> what about U9?
[07:26:31] <Fl00der> sort of
[07:26:40] <Fl00der> I have completed U9 :)
[07:27:04] <Baastuul> I hated Dungeon Hythloth. :(
[07:27:31] <Fl00der> I hated dungeon wrong
[07:27:56] <sbx> Coming soon, the new action packed first-person shooter: Ultima Arena. EA GAMES
[07:27:58] <Baastuul> Yeah, having the guards catch you was annoying.
[07:29:55] <sbx> Why would guards go after you? Unless you were commiting crimes.
[07:30:02] <sbx> (havn't played U9 either)
[07:30:08] <sbx> They work for the Guardian?
[07:31:11] <Baastuul> You invade Dungeon Wrong to do something (I forget) and the guards are on the lookout for you.
[07:31:19] --> Colourless has joined #Exult
[07:31:19] --- ChanServ gives channel operator status to Colourless
[07:31:40] <Fl00der> hmm...if I remember right, you had to rescue raven
[07:32:01] <Fl00der> but can't be sure ^_^
[07:32:01] * Colourless waves ban wand around... people talking about u9
[07:32:08] <Fl00der> :)
[07:32:20] <Fl00der> is it illegal? :P
[07:32:47] * sbx wonders where Colourless been all this time. People talking about U9. The channel has gone mad!
[07:32:57] <Fl00der> :D
[07:33:02] <Colourless> i am the law around these parts.... what i say goes
[07:33:08] <Fl00der> ok
[07:33:36] <Baastuul> :o
[07:33:38] <Colourless> good thing i'm not holding the kick wand too
[07:34:02] <Baastuul> Hey, Colourless. I am making a chart ( http://baastuul.digital-focus.us/locations ) of locations of IRC people. I was wondering if I could ask where you're located? :)
[07:34:09] <Fl00der> phew

[07:34:34] <Colourless> Adelaide, Australia

[07:35:03] <Fl00der> it's the old one on site :P
[07:35:09] <Fl00der> good :)
[07:35:13] <Baastuul> I was thinking about that as soon as you entered the channel
[07:35:19] <Fl00der> and thanks for putting me there, I feel so famous now :)
[07:35:22] <Baastuul> hehe
[07:35:52] <Fl00der> nice site :)
[07:36:06] <Baastuul> thanks :)
[07:38:20] <sbx> Colourless: seriously did you go on a vacation?
[07:38:23] <Baastuul> Fl00der, you are in Ylivieska, yes?
[07:38:47] <Colourless> sbx: nope
[07:39:09] <Colourless> my focus has been 'elsewhere' and i've just been forgetting to log on to freenode
[07:39:24] <sbx> hmm ok

[19:45:27] <Zxcvb> do items ever disappear if you drop them on the dark path?
[19:46:48] <Colourless> if an item has the temporary flag set yes it will. however for most items they wont
[19:47:04] <Colourless> few items will ever have the temp flag set
[19:48:14] <Zxcvb> ah, just wondering if some areas were not safe to leave things
[19:48:25] <Zxcvb> I usually use deathwatch
[19:48:46] <Zxcvb> I know items created by the teleport storms are unstable, but other than that
[19:49:04] <Colourless> all areas are the same
[19:49:23] <Colourless> items created by the teleport storms have the temporary flag set
[19:49:56] <Colourless> when you get too far away from the items exult automatically deletes them
[19:50:02] <Colourless> (and the original engine too)
[19:59:45] <Zxcvb> does that apply even if they are in a container?
[20:01:34] <Zxcvb> hmm, apparently putting a temporary object in a container like a barrel makes it permanent
[20:03:24] <Colourless> that is possible
[20:03:50] <Colourless> would be a quirk about how the saving system works
[20:04:03] <Zxcvb> is it supposed to?
[20:04:51] <Colourless> not by design
[20:04:59] <Zxcvb> I took a piece of green cheese made with create food and stuck it in a barrel and it stayed even after going far away, but then when I took it out of the barrel and put it on the ground, it also stayed
[20:05:17] <Zxcvb> you aren't supposed to be able to duplicate a coin that was created with fake coin either
[20:05:35] <Zxcvb> is the clearing of the temp flag an exult bug though
[20:05:47] <Colourless> not 'our' problem with the false coin stuff... the original did the same
[20:06:04] <Colourless> bug/feature depending on how you see it
[20:06:24] <Colourless> while the behaviour hasn't been coded to be the way it is, it doesn't mean it's not desirable
[20:06:42] <Colourless> you move a temporary item into a container, it's sort of implys you want to keep it
[20:06:53] <Colourless> s/implys/implies/
[20:07:11] <Zxcvb> yeah, similar to being 100% invulnerable in si

[21:15:47] <wepy> hi

[21:16:06] <wepy> it's from the Ultima Classics CD
[21:16:52] <wepy> so when i launch ultima, i see little icons that are speakers w/X's over them
[21:16:53] <Baastuul> Which Ultima are you trying to play?
[21:16:57] <wepy> ultima 7
[21:17:03] <wepy> (and serpent if i beat u7)
[21:17:08] <Baastuul> There's a sound pack on the Exult site that you can download.
[21:17:13] <Baastuul> http://exult.sourceforge.net/
[21:17:16] <wepy> is that the jmfx.flx ?
[21:17:31] <Baastuul> It might be, I don't remember... It's been too long. :/
[21:17:35] <wepy> i see
[21:17:36] <wepy> thanks
[21:17:39] <Baastuul> Yup
[21:17:41] <wepy> so that is music and sounds?
[21:17:49] <Baastuul> yeah, i think so
[21:19:18] <Baastuul> hmm.. gotta go study for a test, afk
[21:19:20] <Baastuul> hope it works :)
[21:20:19] <Zxcvb> and remember, the way to win in bg/si is serial kleptomania
[21:20:32] <wepy> =)
[21:20:44] <wepy> is there a way to test midi output?
[21:20:51] <wepy> i got sounds for the big red guy
[21:20:56] <wepy> but there was no music..
[21:20:56] <Zxcvb> not sure, never got it to work
[21:21:10] <Zxcvb> I just use the fm synth option and sqsfxbg/sqsfxsi files
[21:21:13] <wepy> oh
[21:21:20] <wepy> /usr/share/games/exult/music hehe
[21:21:27] <wepy> hm..
