[00:05:03] * Fingolfin know this feeling
[00:05:12] <Fingolfin> nowadays it is better, with my new ISP ;)
[00:08:14] <wjp> lol: one of the Lorelei town guards just followed me into the thieves guild
[00:10:57] <Fingolfin> ?exult
[00:10:57] <exultbot> Exult is a project to create an Ultima 7 game engine that runs on modern operating systems, capable of using the data and graphics files that come with the game. See http://exult.sourceforge.net/ for more information.
[00:10:59] <Fingolfin> ?exile
[00:11:23] <exultbot> exile is a game wjp has been wasting way too much time on
[00:11:28] <Fingolfin> "Exile is another RPG which is so addictive that it prevents wjp from doing any work."
[00:11:31] <Fingolfin> <g>
[00:11:47] <wjp> hey, I patched 3 bugs the last couple of days! ;-)
[00:11:52] <Fingolfin> exultbot: just imagine what would happen if everyone knew how to steer you ;)
[00:11:59] <Fingolfin> ok ok
[00:12:03] <Fingolfin> you are better than me ;)
[00:12:11] <Fingolfin> I have no time for exult currently :(
[00:12:21] <Fingolfin> that means that slimes still don't reproduce
[00:12:24] <Fingolfin> (the poor lads)
[00:12:30] <wjp> *sniff*
[00:12:45] <wjp> slimes in Exile don't reproduce anymore either *evil grin*
[00:16:23] <Fingolfin> LOL

[16:14:52] * wjp should really implement auto-reconnect
[16:15:30] <wjp> the new uint{8,16,32} types are causing a bit of a problem on BeOS :-(
[16:15:42] <jameson> Why is that?
[16:16:02] <wjp> well, one Be header file already defines them
[16:16:18] <wjp> but differently
[16:16:20] <jameson> That's not good...
[16:16:49] <wjp> we sometimes use a size_t as a uint32, which works fine in linux
[16:16:56] <wjp> however it won't compile on Be :-(
[16:17:10] <jameson> Also, sizeof(size_t) == sizeof(long) on most UNIXes.
[16:17:19] <jameson> I.e. it's int64 on the Alpha.
[16:17:43] <jameson> How about renaming them to exu?int{8,16,32}
[16:18:27] <wjp> or just xu?int
[16:18:28] <wjp> hmmm
[16:18:29] <jameson> (Unfortunately, I can't fix that myself ATM, because SF CVS still doesn't work for me)
[16:19:07] <jameson> xu?int would be shorter. Unless XFree uses it, it's better.
[16:24:18] * wjp greps through /usr/X11R6/lib
[16:25:16] * wjp greps through /usr/X11R6/include
[16:25:24] <wjp> no occurences of xint or xuint
[16:25:38] <jameson> Great! So let's use that.

[19:00:59] <exultbot> wjp is right here!
[19:01:03] <siapash> hi folks
[19:01:08] <wjp> hi
[19:01:14] <jameson> Hi
[19:02:13] <siapash> what does exultbot do?
[19:03:31] <wjp> not much
[19:03:56] <wjp> you can ask it a few questions, like ?exult
[19:04:45] <siapash> ?exult
[19:04:45] <exultbot> Exult is a project to create an Ultima 7 game engine that runs on modern operating systems, capable of using the data and graphics files that come with the game. See http://exult.sourceforge.net/ for more information.

[20:37:26] <wjp> hi Max
[20:37:35] <Fingolfin> hi wjp
[20:37:53] <wjp> have you read the logs for a few hours ago?
[20:37:59] <Fingolfin> no
[20:38:03] <Fingolfin> I just came home
[20:38:22] <Fingolfin> ?logs
[20:38:25] <Fingolfin> ?log
[20:38:25] <exultbot> Logs are available at http://www.math.leidenuniv.nl/~wpalenst/exultlog.php3
[20:38:39] * Fingolfin makes a note for wjp: "add ?logs? command" ;)
[20:38:47] <wjp> my thought exactly :-)
[20:41:35] <Fingolfin> you mean the xint/xuint stuff?
[20:41:38] <Fingolfin> should be fine on me
[20:41:48] <wjp> ok
[20:41:57] <Fingolfin> it was a bit confusing anyway: Uint32 (SDL) <-> uint32 (exult) <-> UInt32 (MacOS)
[20:41:58] <Fingolfin> ;)
[20:42:19] <wjp> so now we'll introduce another one :-)
[20:42:24] <Fingolfin> LOL
[20:42:39] <wjp> is using the SDL types an option?
[20:44:37] <Fingolfin> hm
[20:44:44] <Fingolfin> I think the SDL types are evil
[20:44:51] <Fingolfin> since they have the same problems ours used to have
[20:44:59] <Fingolfin> i.e. they ignore 64 bit CPUs
[20:45:14] <wjp> isn't SDL supposed to be platform independant?
[20:46:09] <Fingolfin> go to #sdl
[20:46:12] <Fingolfin> I am asking there

[23:15:24] <TonyHoyt> Hello
[23:15:37] <Fingolfin> hi
[23:15:53] <TonyHoyt> What's new or being chatted about?
[23:16:16] <Fingolfin> hm
[23:16:24] <Fingolfin> nothing for the last few hours ;)
[23:16:26] <Fingolfin> ?log
[23:16:26] <exultbot> Logs are available at http://www.math.leidenuniv.nl/~wpalenst/exultlog.php3
[23:16:58] <TonyHoyt> I always forget about that.
[23:17:06] <Fingolfin> wjp: are you there?
[23:19:44] <wjp> oh, hi
[23:19:49] * wjp wasn't looking
[23:20:14] * TonyHoyt finishes reading the lo
[23:20:17] <TonyHoyt> lo -> log
[23:20:28] <TonyHoyt> Oh well. talks on defineing types and stuff.. *shrugs*
[23:20:40] <Fingolfin> wjp: question
[23:20:43] * TonyHoyt hacks some more windows code.
[23:21:05] <Fingolfin> wjp: is it possible to get a different color for my nick? like all the core member have their own color or so... so it is easier to browse it
[23:21:18] <Fingolfin> tony: good! at least someone is working ;)
[23:21:26] * Fingolfin goes back to work on Jabbernaut
[23:21:55] <TonyHoyt> Not fun work, I'm trying to figure out how to code this old map editor for a game I'm writing to windows. And I've never done windows before and I have to admit, it stinks.
