[06:44:02] <Dominus> hey ha
[06:44:18] <Dominus> Marzo_away : thanks for all the fixes!
[06:45:02] <Malignant_Manor> Gump dehardcoding patch?

[06:45:37] --> Rottingbeef has joined #exult
[06:45:58] <Dominus> hi Malignant_Manor
[06:46:27] <Malignant_Manor> Hello Dominus
[06:48:55] <Malignant_Manor> 76 file changes at once
[06:53:08] <Malignant_Manor> I'm wondering if I should even mess with getting exult to work in dos. I'm unsure of the reason the mouse doesn't work. I'm not sure if sound will work even if I get SDL_mixer loaded by the wrapper.
[06:54:38] --- Marzo_away is now known as Marzo
[06:54:57] <Marzo> Dominus: No problem
[06:55:06] <Marzo> Malignant_Manor: No, not yet
[06:55:29] <Marzo> Just toying with a new toy (cppcheck) and fixing several problems
[06:55:41] <Malignant_Manor> Yeah, I noticed all the files and thought maybe that was it.
[06:56:04] <Marzo> Anyways, I am going to bed now (almost 4AM here), so good night to you all
[06:56:07] <Malignant_Manor> I wonder if the cheat screen freezes now.
[06:56:12] <Malignant_Manor> Goodnight
[06:56:21] <-- Marzo has left IRC ("Marzo vanishes suddenly.")
[06:56:32] <Dominus> marzo: I need some help with mods and patches, but I'll talk to you another time :)
[06:56:34] <Dominus> he he
[07:43:32] <Dominus> hmm, I'm still wondering what the actual difference between mods and patches are...
[07:44:04] <Dominus> except for the handling (via menu and fine tuning in the mods dir) I see no real difference...
[07:44:34] <Malignant_Manor> Pretty much
[07:44:42] <Dominus> both need a new game to be started and both savegames are not compatible with each other or other games...
[07:45:20] <Dominus> patch support seems to be in exult now, just for legacy purposes...
[07:45:58] <Dominus> this makes writing documentation so much easier... NOT! :)
[07:46:17] <Malignant_Manor> well new games, unless the map is touch signifigantly, don't really need to be started and saves are compatible to a point
[07:47:15] <Malignant_Manor> but is best not to mix a mod file with the normal games saves or other mods except perhaps SI and SI Fixes.
[07:47:23] <Dominus> hmm, patches are mostly usefull now for small changes and usecode patches, it seems
[07:47:38] <Malignant_Manor> Well, some people like playing vanilla.
[07:48:02] <Dominus> I just tried the old SF island patch, and it actually still works, mostly :)
[07:48:30] <Malignant_Manor> I thought about suggesting your portrait and the dosbox avatar.
[07:48:50] <Dominus> :)
[07:49:23] <Dominus> that was when I thought I could make the other devs to bring in theri pictures so the patch would look better :)
[07:49:39] <Dominus> I still like the "tux" statue :)
[07:50:15] <Malignant_Manor> I've only looked at the code slightly and the pic.
[07:51:04] <Dominus> it's a nice little quest that Dr.Code wrote, probably half of the code no longer works :)
[07:52:16] <Dominus> when I'm done with the docs, I would really like to work on it again a bit, to make it into a mod and have it in working order again... :)
[07:52:42] <-- Rottingbeef has left IRC ("I, too, have lost a kingdom.")
[07:52:53] <Malignant_Manor> It probably only has a little bit of code to be fixed.
[07:57:51] <Malignant_Manor> The program I am using to run Exult in a Dos environment is freeware and open source (except one file or set) but no real license. It's also pretty much all assembly which I don't know.
[08:05:21] <Dominus> hehe, as I wrote, really just crazy, that you try this...
[08:06:58] <Malignant_Manor> I'm going to try a long file name tool to see if it actually works so SDL_Mixer can be added with no changes.
[08:07:07] --> Sevalecan has joined #exult
[09:10:47] <Dominus> phew... finally done most of it... I'll send Marzo a copy so he can tell me what he thinks of what I've written :)
[09:17:57] <Malignant_Manor> Oh, about the save incompatibilities, SI and SI Fixes are probably compatible with each other (both ways). BG save can likely be used with Keyring but not vice versa.
[09:18:40] <Malignant_Manor> I doubt Marzo would even like that being said though.
[09:31:29] <Dominus> it's been said in the thread I opened for the documentation help... But I'll keep it secret that SI and SI fixes might be compatible. Better not have people run into problems...
[09:31:37] <Dominus> I have to go off now :)
