[00:00:38] <wjp> (3 of them, last couple of lines of gamewin.cc, btw)
[00:01:38] <Kirben> that worked
[00:01:54] <wjp> ok, I'll commit it
[00:03:04] <wjp> oops... not again...
[00:03:13] <wjp> I committed with the first part of the intro disabled again
[00:04:57] <Kirben> ok
[01:30:10] <Kirben> Guardian intro section looks better but still missing sound effects
[01:30:42] <wjp> I'm not working on the sound part of it, atm
[01:30:56] <wjp> I'll leave that to someone else I think :-)
[01:32:38] <Kirben> any chance you could add option to disable the subtitles ?
[01:32:47] <wjp> shouldn't be too hard
[01:33:10] <Kirben> great, would look much better without them
[01:34:47] <wjp> I still need to fix the font, though
[01:35:03] <wjp> looks kind of funny, those colour cycling subtitles :-)
[01:41:22] <wjp> ok... animation looks good now
[01:43:14] <wjp> hmm... there are two blue pixels in the lower-right of the exult menu
[01:43:19] <wjp> never noticed that before
[01:45:51] <Kirben> hmm gamewin.cc in CVS is still using randon
[01:45:58] <Kirben> random I mean
[01:45:59] <wjp> just committed the new one
[01:46:21] <wjp> (a bit late, sorry)
[01:46:29] <Kirben> ok its alright now
[01:47:13] <wjp> 2:45... ouch
[01:48:18] <wjp> hmmm... subtitles in Runic Script
[01:48:46] * wjp tries yet another font
[01:50:18] <Kirben> Really working late there, just lunch time over here
[01:51:17] <wjp> yes, I should probably think about going to bed soon
[01:57:01] <wjp> do you have a screenshot of the original with the subtitles?
[02:04:08] <Kirben> no but can do one
[02:04:23] <wjp> what program do you use for these screenshots, btw?
[02:04:58] <Kirben> I just use print screen to capture and ifranview to convert
[02:05:25] <wjp> printscreen works in U7?
[02:05:30] <wjp> ok...
[02:07:58] <Kirben> yes while in window
[02:08:24] <wjp> it runs in a window?
[02:08:37] <wjp> using U7run right?
[02:10:01] <Kirben> yes
[02:10:11] <Kirben> works full screen too
[02:10:12] <wjp> thanks
[02:11:03] <wjp> jpeg compression does funny things with the background :-)
[02:11:29] <Kirben> would another image format be better ?
[02:11:38] <wjp> no, the font is perfectly readable
[02:13:50] <Kirben> Still missing brief section of grey background too in guardian section
[02:14:16] <wjp> the static in the beginning?
[02:14:56] <Kirben> yes starts grey, which flickers to blue
[02:15:51] <wjp> yes, there's still a few transitions missing
[02:16:20] <wjp> the part where the pc appears is a bit too sudden too, I think
[02:33:35] <wjp> hmm... this looks like the right font, but the background colour is blue instead of black
[02:34:16] <wjp> hmm... the "Lord British presents" screen doesn't appear
[02:37:33] * wjp yawns
[02:37:40] <wjp> ok... time to call it a day
[02:38:10] <wjp> I've committed the last version, with the new (almost correct) font
[02:38:17] <wjp> see you later

[22:46:54] <wjp> please take a look, I wouldn't want all that work to be wasted :-)
[22:47:49] <wjp> there's still one thing I haven't figured out, though
[22:48:31] <wjp> in the endgame shapes is one shapes with a lot of 8x8 frames, and I just don't see what they're supposed to be
[22:51:04] <Fingolfin> hm
[22:51:10] <Fingolfin> I will do a CVS update
[23:19:07] <Kirben> guardian audio/video is still way out on win32
[23:19:27] <wjp> I was afraid of that
[23:19:43] <Kirben> He is always blinking
[23:20:11] <wjp> yes, the Guardian's face animation needs to be rewritten
