[00:53:02] --> Baastuul has joined #Exult
[00:53:03] <Baastuul> hey
[00:57:47] <D_Skywalk> hello
[00:57:50] <D_Skywalk> :_D
[01:01:37] <Baastuul> neat
[01:01:39] <Baastuul> http://www.ctv.ca/servlet/ArticleNews/story/CTVNews/1079355272923_74764472/?hub=World
[01:03:04] <Baastuul> It's too bad that stuff like this only gets released far after they discover it.
[01:03:08] <Baastuul> Says they found out about in on November 13th.
[01:34:22] <Sheng_Gradilla> heh, if you search about the vaccine for AIDS, you will find that an actual cure exists since 1982 or so, discovered somewhere in Africa
[01:34:32] <-- D_Skywalk has left IRC ()
[02:02:06] <Baastuul> You sure you aren't confusing that with Hepatitis B?

[02:06:29] <Sheng_Gradilla> the doctor's name is Abalaka

[02:07:55] <Sheng_Gradilla> but it wasn't that earlier
[02:08:05] <Baastuul> ok
[02:08:08] <Baastuul> found something
[02:08:09] <Baastuul> http://www.nigerdeltacongress.com/articles/abalakas_long_road_to_victory.htm
[02:15:31] <Sheng_Gradilla> the only fishy thing is he patented it and doesn't want to reveal how it's done
[02:15:49] <Sheng_Gradilla> but the local army claims their infected soldiers were cured

[13:08:07] <Colourless> hi
[15:24:41] <wjp> "The city of Aliso Viejo, CA nearly banned foam cups when they learned they are produced from a substance known as 'dihydrogen monoxide.'"... ouch :-)
[15:25:04] <Colourless> :-)
[15:25:21] <Colourless> i guess we're all in trouble then
[15:25:43] <wjp> the dihydrogen monoxide concentration in my blood is dangerously high

[15:33:48] <wjp> hi
[15:34:05] <Colourless> hi
[15:34:10] <dex909> i still canīt get this ultima9 thing to work :-/
[15:34:22] <dex909> i posted it at a forum too!
[15:37:35] <dex909> any pagan news?
[15:45:46] <Colourless> time for me to go

[19:36:07] --- dex is now known as dex909
[19:36:21] <dex909> hello ;) me again!
[19:36:44] <dex909> when will colourless be here again?
[19:37:02] <wjp> tomorrow probably
[19:37:29] <dex909> ah, thank you ;)
[19:38:03] <dex909> oh and a little question about ultima 8 - did that original game also have a higher resolution than 320x240? or can you force it to a higher res?
[19:38:23] <wjp> 320x200; I don't think it supported anything higher
[19:38:34] <dex909> ah, i knew it ;)
[19:38:54] <dex909> any way to enhance the gfx with dosbox?
[19:39:01] <wjp> 'enhance'?
[19:40:24] <dex909> you can change the resolution of dosbox as well as a mode called "mame2x" or something like that
[19:41:37] <wjp> well, yes, dosbox can scale
[19:43:57] <dex909> so how does it function, do you know that?
[19:44:13] <wjp> what do you mean?
[19:44:14] <dex909> i mean if i use a high res and scaling, is it looking better?
[19:44:48] <dex909> i tried, and the only thing that happens is that is it looking like "smoother rounder" pixels
[19:44:52] <dex909> like in exult
[19:53:24] <dex909> well, itīs not important ;)
[19:55:53] <wjp> well, it's the same idea as in exult
[19:56:12] <wjp> dosbox can scale graphics, and some scalers apply some kind of filter
[19:57:05] <dex909> well, one last question - can you change the window size/resolution in dosbox to something higher than 320x240 (not in fullscreen)?
[19:57:25] <wjp> in a game?
[19:57:58] <dex909> only that the window is larger :)
[19:58:11] <wjp> uh, use scaling?
[19:58:16] <dex909> itīs always 320x240 for me, i already experimented with the settings
[19:58:23] <dex909> wonīt work
[19:58:32] <dex909> and hardware scaling wonīt work too
[19:58:38] <wjp> scaling works fine here
[19:58:57] <dex909> well, i wonīt change this chatroom into a dosbox chat, so sorry for the questions ;)
[19:59:09] <dex909> and thanks for your answers :)
[19:59:19] <wjp> dosbox is playing u8 in a 640x480 window on my desktop currently
[19:59:57] <dex909> great, so itīs working! cool, then iīll try it, i sure will find out ;)
[20:00:01] <dex909> thank you! got to go ;)
