[15:27:05] <Colourless> hi
[15:27:29] <Flyn_Oakplume> Say, I was wondering: Is it just my computer or do winamp and photoshop make exult not run?
[15:28:10] <Colourless> i'm thinking it's just your computer
[15:28:41] <Flyn_Oakplume> arr
[15:28:45] <Flyn_Oakplume> It plain annoying

[15:54:57] <Colourless> dom: to sourceforge of course
[15:55:05] <Dominus> :-)
[15:55:12] <Colourless> dom: i'm guessing you want to know where on sourceforge :)
[15:55:19] <Dominus> right :-)

[15:59:00] <Dominus> I had a couple of issues that went away when I started a new game .-(

[16:00:37] <Dominus> yeah, true. but cheating with exult is soooo nice
[16:00:44] <hancuso4> I really interested in buliding my home in moniter by using hack mover mode..^^;;
[16:01:17] <hancuso4> i think so too..^^
[16:01:41] <hancuso4> especialy npc edit mode with picture of npc..^^

[16:07:15] <hancuso4> I don't..^^;
[16:07:16] <Colourless> hancuso4: i've got the email and the savegame

[16:07:47] <hancuso4> can you see the korean alpahbet?
[16:07:49] <hancuso4> ^^;
[16:08:47] <Dominus> colourless: is that ftp always that fast? (362 bytes/s, 4:35 h left)
[16:09:00] <hancuso4> wow..^^
[16:09:27] <Colourless> it shouldn't be that slow
[16:09:27] <hancuso4> ;;;
[16:09:35] <Colourless> hancuso4: nope
[16:10:08] <hancuso4> i know..^^:;
[16:10:47] <Dominus> it is my end that has been so slow in the last 24 hours
[16:10:47] <hancuso4> like modem..^^;;
[16:11:27] <hancuso4> what files do you up?
[16:11:34] <hancuso4> patch?
[16:11:43] <hancuso4> screen shot?
[16:11:44] <Dominus> at the moment none :-)
[16:11:44] <hancuso4> ^^;;
[16:12:05] <hancuso4> ...??
[16:12:24] <Dominus> you know the sfx pack for Black Gate? The same guy(Joseph Morris) recorded the sfx for SI as well
[16:12:39] <hancuso4> wow~~
[16:12:48] <hancuso4> i want it~!! ^^;;
[16:12:56] <-- Dominus has left IRC (Read error to Dominus[212186137085.15.univie.teleweb.at]: Connection reset by peer)
[16:13:08] <hancuso4> huk..;;
[16:13:09] --> Dominus has joined #Exult
[16:13:21] <hancuso4> re..hi.^^:;
[16:13:26] <Dominus> argh
[16:14:11] <hancuso4> i want it~!! ^^
[16:14:32] <Dominus> colourless, how do I delete the incomplete upload?
[16:14:48] <Dominus> hancuso4: just wait a couple of hours
[16:14:59] <hancuso4> ...;;
[16:15:06] <hancuso4> i can do it~!! ^^;;
[16:15:11] <Colourless> Dominus: no idea. anyway, don't upload it yet.
[16:15:27] <Dominus> and due to a bug some sfx sound strange (be warned)
[16:15:43] <Dominus> ?
[16:15:58] <Dominus> hancuso4: what?
[16:16:02] <hancuso4> ..;;
[16:16:09] <hancuso4> i can wait..^^;;
[16:16:16] <Dominus> oh, right
[16:16:16] <Colourless> hancuso4: the reason I say that is because a new package needs to be defined, and I can't do that
[16:16:31] <Colourless> that message was meant for Dominus
[16:16:34] <Dominus> :-)
[16:16:40] <Dominus> I understood :-)
[16:17:10] --> Nadir has joined #exult
[16:17:15] <hancuso4> i don't..;;
[16:17:21] <hancuso4> hallo~
[16:17:25] <Colourless> hi Nadir
[16:17:41] <Nadir> hi dragon with no colour
[16:17:57] <Dominus> hi
[16:18:04] <Nadir> hi dom
[16:18:10] <hancuso4> hm..
[16:18:18] <Colourless> :)
[16:18:24] <Nadir> I was thinking about a neat new feature...
[16:18:37] <Colourless> you going to impliment it? :)
[16:18:46] <Nadir> I wish I had the time.
[16:18:48] <Dominus> ah, new feature - great!!!
[16:19:11] <hancuso4> ..?
[16:19:13] <Nadir> Feature bloat is good
[16:19:20] <Nadir> :)
[16:19:34] <Colourless> well, what is it? :)
[16:20:01] <hancuso4> I feel that I am so weak about english words..^^:;
[16:20:35] <Dominus> hancuso4: you are doing fine :-)
[16:20:43] <hancuso4> danke..^^:
[16:21:02] <Dominus> :-)
[16:21:45] --> GigDR has joined #Exult
[16:21:46] <-- Dominus has left IRC (Read error to Dominus[212186137085.15.univie.teleweb.at]: Connection reset by peer)
[16:21:59] <hancuso4> hi
[16:22:09] <GigDR> ahhhhhh
[16:22:13] <Nadir> Well, has anybody thought about having a status bar at the bottom of the screen with vital stats for the party (like in U8)
[16:22:17] <GigDR> itīs me Dominus
[16:22:31] --- GigDR is now known as Dominus
[16:22:44] <hancuso4> ^^;
[16:22:52] <Nadir> You're lying !!! You've killed the real Dominus!!!
[16:22:57] <Colourless> that's a pretty good idea
[16:22:59] <Dominus> somebody mentioned this some time ago in the mailing list I think
[16:23:01] <hancuso4> huk..;;
[16:23:14] <Colourless> take that :)
[16:23:31] <hancuso4> like in u8?
[16:23:43] <hancuso4> ah~~
[16:23:59] <Dominus> somebody even modified the code to do so but had problems with the screen update
[16:24:19] <Dominus> I am the real Dominus, I can prove it I can even speak Italian
[16:24:34] <Colourless> i reconsidered :)
[16:24:45] * Dominus remembers that Dominus is supposed to speak German
[16:24:47] <hancuso4> two gauge of bottom-right blue and red??
[16:25:12] <Colourless> doing a state update wouldn't take much effort to impliment
[16:25:37] <hancuso4> um..
[16:26:15] <hancuso4> Ich heisse sankyu Han..;;
[16:26:16] <Dominus> maybe ask in the mailing list before doing it yourself. That someone allready did it
[16:26:39] <Colourless> but you say it didn't work
[16:27:11] <Dominus> I think he and Jeff exchanged some thoughts and it did work then
[16:27:12] <hancuso4> ...?
[16:27:18] <hancuso4> I can't understand this situation..^^;;
[16:27:30] <Colourless> um, then why wasn't it implimented then?
[16:27:55] <Dominus> hancuso4: entschuldigung, wollte Dich nicht ignorieren
[16:28:07] <Colourless> hancuso4: i tested the savegame at it crashed before the trial
[16:28:28] <hancuso4> yah..^^
[16:28:40] <Dominus> let me see...
[16:29:34] <Dominus> my internet connection is killing me
[16:30:20] <hancuso4> colourless~ see the iolo's small bag in backpak..^^;;
[16:30:52] <hancuso4> He is the richest old man in serpent isle.^^;;
[16:32:34] <Colourless> you appear to be a bit of a cheater :)
[16:33:12] <hancuso4> and go to the cityhall in moniter.. there is my home..^^;;
[16:33:15] <Dominus> colourless: see Bryan murphys post to the mailing list at the 27th of February
[16:34:25] <Colourless> interesting :)
[16:34:38] <hancuso4> i used egg of deer.. so i can easily get deer meat
[16:34:48] <hancuso4> ;;
[16:35:33] <Dominus> he offered the code, Jeff said it would be nice to have as an optiona and thatīs the last thing that was heard of him
[16:35:38] <Colourless> dom: i wouldn't have done it that way. A far better idea would be to simply use a gump
[16:35:50] <Nadir> But then you're in gump mode
[16:36:17] <Nadir> If you have a hotkey that toggles this stats bar it would be cool
[16:36:29] <hancuso4> what is gump mode?
[16:36:52] <Colourless> hmm, good point. Ultima 8 never had a 'gump' mode as such.
[16:36:59] <Dominus> with an ugly hand pointer
[16:37:48] <hancuso4> ;; in blooding..;;
[16:38:20] <Colourless> gump mode is where you have an inventory open, or a container such as a chest, or a bag
[16:38:45] <Nadir> Maybe even have it "auto-popup" in combat, if the user wishes
[16:39:54] <Dominus> would be nice (i frequently get killed in Si (is SI harder than BG?))
[16:39:54] <Nadir> Got to go now. Have fun without me :)
[16:39:56] <-- Nadir has left IRC (I feel like dumping a core)
[16:40:18] <Dominus> he always leaves soooo soon :-(
[16:40:36] <Colourless> Just thinking. Gump mode wouldn't actually be required for this, but it could still be a gump.
[16:42:46] <Dominus> whatever you think :-)
[16:43:11] <hancuso4> hu...
[16:43:15] <Dominus> but actually I donīt see it being required so urgently (though it WOULD b3e nice)
[16:43:19] <hancuso4> i will go to bed..^^
[16:43:37] <hancuso4> very interesting time..^^
[16:43:43] <hancuso4> have a nice day~!!
[16:43:47] <-- hancuso4 has left #exult
[16:44:23] <Colourless> I've got lots of other things I need to do before I think of doing this, provided I'm the one to do it.
[16:44:47] <Dominus> you too
[16:45:42] <Colourless> :)
[16:45:50] <Dominus> :)
[16:46:48] <Dominus> Iīm in the progress of finishing the SI sfx list soon (i hope)
[16:48:11] <Colourless> good. :)
[16:48:14] <Colourless> May take a while though
[16:49:10] <Dominus> itīs very tedious, comparing the jmīs si sounds to his bg (136 to 114) just by listening and also finding them in the game
[16:49:13] <Dominus> :(
[16:51:04] <Colourless> yeah, i can imagine :(
