[17:55:57] <wjp> hi artaxerxes
[17:56:11] <artaxerxes> yellow!
[17:56:19] <Colourless> hi
[17:56:24] --- ChanServ gives channel operator status to artaxerxes
[17:56:33] <artaxerxes> hi Colourless
[17:56:38] <wjp> blue!
[17:56:55] <artaxerxes> red!
[17:57:24] <Suvroc> hi artaxerxes
[17:57:28] <artaxerxes> hi Suvroc
[17:57:45] <artaxerxes> seems Jeff can't reproduce yesterday's bug
[17:58:07] <wjp> it happened to me fairly consistently
[17:58:44] <artaxerxes> as usual, we should all go and play on Jeff's machine since bugs don't work on his machine! :)
[17:58:59] <wjp> what version are you running?
[17:59:12] <artaxerxes> cvs HEAD branch (1.1-cvs)
[17:59:25] <wjp> hm, I was using devel-1-00 yesterday
[17:59:33] <artaxerxes> same
[17:59:40] <wjp> it doesn't seem to be happening with head
[17:59:55] <artaxerxes> devel-1-00 is head
[18:00:01] <wjp> no, it isn't :-)
[18:00:25] <artaxerxes> hmm.. must be mistaken then
[18:00:43] <artaxerxes> well, I tried on head and it froze and you tried on devel-1-00 and it froze too
[18:00:45] <wjp> head = 1.1-cvs
[18:00:48] <artaxerxes> ;)
[18:00:51] <wjp> devel-1-00 = 0.99.something
[18:01:07] <wjp> but now I'm trying on head and it's not crashing
[18:01:10] <artaxerxes> that always amazed me how much sense it behind that! :)
[18:01:31] <artaxerxes> I've got head from yesterday and it still happened today
[18:01:31] <wjp> devel-1-00 is development towards 1.00
[18:03:02] <artaxerxes> I started to put on paper (on Compact Flash actually) the ideas for the new game based on ES
[18:03:11] <wjp> cool :-)
[18:03:33] <artaxerxes> I think I'll call it Century or something like that from now on
[18:03:47] <artaxerxes> (unless Century is already taken)
[18:04:37] <wjp> oh, great, now neither is crashing
[18:04:44] <artaxerxes> ;-)
[18:05:04] <artaxerxes> be careful, I'm gonna play on your machine now! :)
[18:05:23] <wjp> have fun getting exult's graphics over my 16Kb/s upstream connection :-)
[18:05:44] <artaxerxes> do you guy know if "century" is already taken as a title for a game ? I couldn't find anything on google
[18:06:03] <wjp> hm, I would expect most word-based titles are already taken
[18:06:09] <wjp> but I wouldn't let that stop you :-)
[18:06:21] <artaxerxes> ah, not "wsefwdvwdf" ;)
[18:06:41] * artaxerxes is getting really annoying
[18:06:44] <artaxerxes> sorry
[18:07:04] <artaxerxes> it's just that I've done some really good work at my job and I feel happy
[18:08:19] <artaxerxes> would you agree in saying that the combat system in u7 is not great?
[18:08:27] <wjp> understatement :-)
[18:09:03] <Colourless> :-)
[18:09:10] <artaxerxes> would you know if it is possible to modify the engine a tad bit (!) so that combat are initiated after a word is chosen in a conversation and it will look like the duels that happen in Pirates!
[18:09:46] <wjp> it doesn't already support that?
[18:09:49] <Colourless> no modifications should be required to do that
[18:09:58] <Colourless> usecode should already have the intrinsic to do that
[18:10:50] <artaxerxes> I don't think I expressed myself properly.
[18:10:55] <artaxerxes> sorry.
[18:11:17] * wjp never played "Pirates!", btw
[18:11:42] <artaxerxes> In Pirates, if you engage in duel with a guy, the VIEW changes and 2 guys are facing each other and they strike each other based on some key combinations
[18:12:16] <Colourless> that would not be a simple change to make
[18:12:49] <artaxerxes> Indeed
[18:13:40] <artaxerxes> I'm trying to find a cool combat system for Century. Since combat will be _very_ minimal, it doesn't really matter if it stays the same as now, but it would be nice to have an option
[18:13:59] <wjp> how exactly does the view change?
[18:14:42] <artaxerxes> you go from a top view of the world (you see the sea and the boat) to a face-off like the combats in Indiana Jones
[18:25:49] <artaxerxes> http://www.the-underdogs.org/game.php?id=234
[18:26:02] <artaxerxes> that shows the duel combat system
[18:26:31] <wjp> 'cosmoserve'?
[18:26:47] <artaxerxes> http://www.the-underdogs.org/game.php?name=Pirates+2
[18:27:16] <artaxerxes> wjp: some error obviously :)
[18:27:30] <artaxerxes> http://www.the-underdogs.org/game.php?id=2346
[18:30:10] <Colourless> i don't think any of us is 'just' going to add something like that to exult :-)
[18:30:38] <artaxerxes> no? Not even in the bug tracker as an interface enhancement ? :-)
[18:31:28] <Colourless> no :-)
[18:31:32] <artaxerxes> brb
[18:33:14] <artaxerxes> back
[19:02:00] <artaxerxes> hmmm..
[19:02:25] <artaxerxes> back to work....

[20:35:53] <Fingolfin> yo
[20:36:00] <wjp> hi :-)
[20:36:07] <wjp> oh, hi GodBeastX; didn't see you come in
[20:36:20] <Suvroc> hi
[20:36:41] * Fingolfin just noticed that he wasn't idling for the last couple of days in #exult as he normally does
[20:36:56] <Fingolfin> that happens if you move to a different machine w/o keeping your default setup/prefs :-)
[20:37:06] <wjp> :-)
[20:37:17] <wjp> I thought that might've been the reason :-)
[21:23:47] <wjp> I should be going; night
