[17:35:18] <Nuclear> Hi all!
[17:35:23] <Colourless> hi
[17:36:08] <Darke> Hi! Bye!
[17:36:14] <Colourless> bye
[17:36:18] * Darke disappears in a cloud of subatomic particles
[17:36:22] <-- Darke has left #exult ()
[17:37:24] <Nuclear> I'm curious to know if there is a separate channel for pentagram
[17:37:38] <Colourless> no there isn't
[17:37:55] <Colourless> we just talk about pentagram stuff here, when there is something to talk about
[17:39:09] <Nuclear> And I'm guessing that Willem would be the person to talk to in regards of it?
[17:40:34] <Colourless> Willem (wjp), Max (Fingolfin) or myself
[17:40:55] <Colourless> what do you want to know>
[17:49:08] <Nuclear> Ok cool, I was wondering two things actually. First, if the current cvs of pentagram or exult for the matter can be configured. Pentagram complains about a missing Makefile.am and config.sub, while the configure script of exult fails on line 652 at `AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE($PACKAGE,$VERSION,no-define)'
[17:49:08] <Colourless> i take it you are using linux
[17:49:08] <Nuclear> of course
[17:49:08] <Nuclear> wouldn't have it any other way
[17:49:08] <Nuclear> I got exult to compile before... but that was the beta release
[17:49:08] <Colourless> ok with pentagram all you need to run the bootstap script
[17:49:08] <Colourless> bootstrap even
[17:49:08] <Nuclear> right... did that...
[17:49:08] <Colourless> you then run ./configure and then make
[17:49:08] <Nuclear> yup.. but configure fails
[17:49:08] <Nuclear> no config.sub
[17:49:08] <Colourless> oh, I can't really help then. i'm not a linux person
[17:49:08] <Nuclear> oh. hmm.. oh well.. I'll work on that later
[17:49:10] <Nuclear> also.. is there a utility for extracting the U8 files from the orignal cd?
[17:49:26] <Colourless> the files are arj'd
[17:49:38] <Nuclear> really... oh... crap
[17:49:56] <Nuclear> well... I really should tried that
[17:49:57] <Colourless> there is a unarjer out there with source
[17:50:16] <Colourless> no idea where, assuming you don't have an un arfer
[17:50:19] <Colourless> arjer
[17:50:42] <Nuclear> I can just compile one real quick
[17:50:54] <Colourless> the shapes were also compressed and we don't currently decompress then
[17:51:04] <Colourless> s/then/them/
[17:51:19] <Colourless> the game needs to be run once to decompress them
[17:52:27] <Nuclear> dosemu might do the trick... thanks .... I think that's all I need. Later

[20:31:29] --> ashp has joined #exult
[20:32:22] <ashp> line 946 from faq.xml can be removed now, I think, as that was patched. (I was going to file a bug report and include a diff, but I thought "It's only one line")
[20:40:14] <Dominus> what's that one?
[20:41:47] <Dominus> ah, yes the si endscene
[20:42:33] <Dominus> yeah, i will make an update probably later that week
[20:45:42] --> ^^Ghost^^ has joined #exult
[20:45:55] <^^Ghost^^> hello everybody
[20:46:35] <Dominus> hi
[20:47:23] <^^Ghost^^> hi Dominus
[20:47:44] <^^Ghost^^> i am here because i have a big problem... about ultima7
[20:47:54] <Dominus> shoot
[20:48:25] <^^Ghost^^> i am a long time ultima fan
[20:48:46] <^^Ghost^^> i played black gate, serpent isle, pagan and ascension
[20:49:16] <^^Ghost^^> after i finished ascension some weeks ago, i decided to install again the black gate
[20:49:45] <^^Ghost^^> ...but i discovered that my 6th disk is damaged!!!
[20:49:45] <^^Ghost^^> and now i have 2 corrupted files
[20:50:37] <^^Ghost^^> and now i am searching for someone who has ultima7 that can send me those 2 files!
[20:50:50] <Dominus> which two files?
[20:51:16] <^^Ghost^^> they are static/usecode and static/xform.tbl ...
[20:52:34] <^^Ghost^^> ultima7 in dos hangs up and exult gives me a segmentation error
[20:53:03] <Dominus> that's "normal" usecode is vital for U7
[20:54:02] <Dominus> hm, actually, I'm not so sure I could send you mine
[20:54:42] <^^Ghost^^> i think that if i ask origin i wouldn't get any answer...
[20:55:01] <^^Ghost^^> i have the original game, but after all those years...
[20:55:09] <Dominus> mine is from the UC collection and that includes the FoV add-on
[20:55:39] <Dominus> you could ask in the forum for someone who has the floppy version if he could send you these two files
[20:56:03] <^^Ghost^^> which forum?
[20:56:24] <Dominus> http://exult.sourceforge.net/forum/
[20:56:51] <^^Ghost^^> ok thanks a lot
[20:57:12] <^^Ghost^^> i also wrote an email to exult's programmer but i had no answer...
[20:57:22] <Dominus> just mention explicity that you have the floppy version without the FoV...
[20:57:36] <^^Ghost^^> ok i'll go there
[20:57:44] <Dominus> yeah, you wrote us all
[20:58:15] <^^Ghost^^> ah you are one of the authors?!
[20:58:38] <Dominus> I'm actually just the guy who writes the FAQ and Docs
[20:58:59] <Dominus> but normally everyone who has ops here is one of the authors
[20:59:13] <Dominus> except no one is here tonight :-)
[21:00:11] <^^Ghost^^> ok i'll post a message there
[21:01:04] <^^Ghost^^> thanks again
[21:01:51] <^^Ghost^^> but i need a login to post a message in the forum?
[21:02:03] <Dominus> nope
[21:02:25] <Dominus> but you should enter an email address
[21:03:37] <^^Ghost^^> ok i'm doing it

[21:11:12] <__Ghost__> posted
[21:14:41] <__Ghost__> can i ask you another question?
[21:15:14] <Dominus> sure
[21:15:53] <__Ghost__> do you know a way to start u7 in windows98 dos with the emm386 loaded?
[21:16:17] <Dominus> in our links section there is a link to u7 in windows
[21:16:33] <__Ghost__> i mean without exult
[21:16:46] <Dominus> as I said
[21:17:30] <__Ghost__> ok thanks, found
