[16:33:36] <fingolfin> hiya
[16:33:38] <fingolfin> hi willem
[16:44:33] <wjp> hi
[16:44:57] <wjp> Culling object: Dupre@21896,22424,0 <-- strange :-)
[16:48:36] <fingolfin> hm
[16:49:15] <wjp> this is in the savegame attached to the latest bug report on SF, btw
[17:07:25] --> Colourless has joined #Exult
[17:07:30] <wjp> hi
[17:07:39] <Colourless> hi
[17:12:15] <fingolfin> ho
[17:13:50] <fingolfin> wjp: btw, I finished finally today Faith Of The Fallen!
[17:13:54] <fingolfin> and I must say I liked it a lot :)
[17:14:07] <fingolfin> got it last week, but had not so much time to read :)
[17:15:19] <wjp> the sequel should be released sometime next month, IIRC
[17:15:22] * wjp can't wait :-)
[17:17:06] <fingolfin> reallyyyy ??????
[17:17:21] * fingolfin just thought about when the sequel would come :)
[17:17:30] <wjp> well, a couple of months ago the Tor Books release schedule listed it in november
[17:17:56] <wjp> "Pillars of Creation", btw
[17:18:13] <fingolfin> there are only minor issues to be resolved of course... like that 3-4 million soldiers
[17:18:17] <fingolfin> cool
[17:18:50] <wjp> yeah, and the small detail that the dreamwalker still lives
[17:19:17] * Colourless has no idea what is being discussed
[17:19:21] <wjp> http://www.tor.com/scheduletor.html
[17:19:38] <wjp> Colourless: we could talk about Dupre being culled, if you want?
[17:20:20] <Colourless> sounds like exult... sounds like work... :-)
[17:20:39] <fingolfin> why would that happen?
[17:20:50] <wjp> temporary flag got set on Dupre, somehow
[17:20:56] <fingolfin> in fact, I wasn't aware we did such things as culling... hrm... I must admit I am completly out of the loop :/
[17:21:01] <fingolfin> ah
[17:21:01] <fingolfin> IC
[17:21:05] <wjp> swapping out
[17:21:06] <fingolfin> so why should that happen?
[17:21:11] <wjp> not a clue
[17:21:14] <Colourless> well, it shouldn't
[17:21:23] <fingolfin> ah sure, I was aware of that, but only for temps - which of course now makes sense :)
[17:21:42] <fingolfin> where is the temp flag set? could that be a usecode problem?
[17:22:01] <Colourless> possibly
[17:22:33] <Colourless> I would imagine that it really would be very very hard to track down though
[17:22:43] <wjp> yeah :/
[17:29:29] <wjp> maybe he accidently set it using the cheat screen?.... (wishful thinking ;-) )
[17:29:31] <wjp> bbl
[17:29:35] --- wjp is now known as wjp|dinner
[17:29:48] <Colourless> lets hope :-)
[17:30:07] <Colourless> perhaps we should diable cheats to stop people from screwing up their own games :-)
[17:30:14] <Colourless> disable i mean
[17:30:58] <fingolfin> well, why not do it similar to the original, and make them perform some voodoo to enable cheats?
[17:31:14] <fingolfin> this way, you have to really think consciously about using cheats :)
[17:31:19] <Colourless> because then they would just do it :-)

[19:01:51] <-- Colourless has left IRC (It's all about your xp)
[19:10:23] <matto> Fingolfin: are you here?
[19:11:03] <Fingolfin> no, I am not here, and I am not even talking to you, that is all a byproduct of your overactive fantasy
[19:12:13] <matto> nooooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!
[19:12:36] <matto> I have a question about the Macintosh keyboard .. does it have keyboard LED's like a "PC" styled keyboard ?
[19:12:54] <Fingolfin> yes, three LEDs
[19:13:03] <matto> num lock, caps lock, scroll lock?
[19:13:10] <Fingolfin> aye
[19:15:17] <matto> ok, that's what I needed to know
[19:24:11] <Fingolfin> matto: why?
[19:25:24] <matto> Fingolfin: one of the guys who is working on my daphne project wants to use the keyboard LED's to simulate 3 lights from a Space Ace arcade game
[19:25:40] <matto> I was thinking about adding some kind of LED control to SDL and wondered if this would be portable to the Mac platform
[19:25:51] <matto> (I wasn't even sure macs had the led's)
[19:26:52] <Fingolfin> it is portable to ADB macs (the old ones, not being built anymore for 2 years now or so); I have no clue if it is possible to blink the LED keyboards
[19:26:58] <Fingolfin> well it possible, I guess
[19:27:06] <Fingolfin> the question is, is it possible w/o programming USB directly
[20:05:05] <wjp> I think I'll go play some more Avernum
[20:05:05] <wjp> bye
