[12:40:15] <Artaxerxes> hi folkd
[12:42:00] <Artaxerxes> thx for your help Dominus and Marzo.
[12:42:25] <Artaxerxes> I followed your instructions wrt setting the Polymorph flag off, but that failed too.
[12:42:39] <Artaxerxes> maybe my version of Exult isn't the right onw
[12:42:43] <Artaxerxes> s/onw/one
[12:43:01] <wjp> we figured out toggling the naked flag from the cheat screen might allow you to disable polymorph
[12:43:01] <Artaxerxes> brb
[12:43:23] <Dominus> hi Artaxerxes
[12:43:34] <Dominus> did you download and install the latest snapshot?
[12:44:03] <Dominus> and weren't you a linux guy formerly? I noticed you played with the Windows rc1 version :)
[12:45:23] <Dominus> I'm gone now again :)
[12:53:43] <Artaxerxes> back
[12:54:04] <Artaxerxes> sorry, had a quick chat with the boss
[12:54:42] <Artaxerxes> anyways, wjp, I'll try that out. I've progressed in the game enough that I don't want to redo from there, but I'm curious on how to fix it
[12:56:12] <Artaxerxes> Dominus: I still am linux guy, but for the commute to work I use a HP tc1100 tablet (from 2004!)
[12:56:41] <Artaxerxes> it cames with Windows and I didn't want to remove it since I play games that aren't all compatible.
[12:58:02] <Artaxerxes> I don't have the latest snapshot however. I'll try that next. Also, I can't figure out where to download the SI patches
[12:58:13] <Artaxerxes> bugs me I can't heal Cantra.
[12:59:09] <Artaxerxes> On a side note, I had many issues while replaying SI from scratch. For instance, I wasn't able to get Beatrix to forgive Shamino. She would whack him once or twice and he wouldn't die, then all the eggs were used up.
[13:00:07] <Artaxerxes> so I changed his HP to 0, but then Beatrix wouldn't appear. I tried HP to 1, but a whack killed him without her offering forgiveness.
[13:00:30] <Artaxerxes> I got fed up with trying and moved on, but I can't remember what she is supposed to give Shamino
[13:02:14] <Artaxerxes> You already now about the Petra issue, so that's good.
[13:03:04] <Artaxerxes> Oh, and when Cantra died, a monk appeared but didn't take the body. It stayed on display in the castle
[13:03:25] <Artaxerxes> (althought she is roaming madly in the Monk Isle)
[13:03:32] <sh4rm4> Artaxerxes, you have to download latest svn and build exult
[13:03:58] <Artaxerxes> does that fix all those issues?
[13:04:11] <sh4rm4> at least the polymorph stuff
[13:04:42] <sh4rm4> it has another nice bugfix as well
[13:04:43] <Artaxerxes> another annoyance is that the spell Deter had an effect on the Hound of Doskar, which got whacked as a result too.
[13:05:24] <Artaxerxes> and times and again, my companions started to whack one another as well, especially when equipped with explosive weapons like the bow of infinity
[13:05:41] <Artaxerxes> sh4rm4: which other bugfix?
[13:05:57] <sh4rm4> a memory leak
[13:06:06] <Artaxerxes> nice
[13:06:14] <sh4rm4> which according to my tests was responsible for a plethora of bugs
[13:06:32] <sh4rm4> but Marzo has another opinion
[13:06:39] <Artaxerxes> that is?
[13:06:58] <Dominus> artaxerxes, that serpent bond fix only works with the latest snapshot
[13:07:16] <sh4rm4> he thinks the memleak caused only more ram to be used over time (like a "normal" memleak)
[13:07:17] <Artaxerxes> Dominus: ok
[13:07:45] <Dominus> sifixes can be found on the forum
[13:07:51] <Dominus> recent posting or so
[13:08:09] <Artaxerxes> maybe a new entry in the links page would fit
[13:08:18] <Artaxerxes> s/fit/be fitting/
[13:08:45] <Dominus> the page was gone and is slowly appearing again :)
[13:09:14] <Artaxerxes> and sorry about my long silence for a while, I used to have Exult forum on my morning routing when starting my computer, but like I told you earlier, my work put a filter. Glad to see they forgot about IRC
[13:09:25] <Dominus> :)
[13:09:52] <sh4rm4> you can make a ssh tunnel
[13:10:00] <Artaxerxes> I need a target for that
[13:10:06] <sh4rm4> your home pc
[13:10:21] <sh4rm4> or your $10/month dedicated 100mbit server
[13:11:05] <Dominus> Artaxerxes: the tc1100 is a great machine. got two of those, one (the better one) has a broken glas front though :(
[13:11:09] <sh4rm4> the ssh tunnel can act as a socks5 proxy
[13:11:24] <Artaxerxes> sh4rm4: I used to do that, but my home connection was spotty at best
[13:11:46] <Artaxerxes> Dominus: sorry about the broken one! But those machines are so cheap and it runs all the good old games
[13:12:17] <Artaxerxes> Dominus: I was playing a large amount of 90s games on it (since it's easier to play without the keyboard):
[13:12:54] <Artaxerxes> Ultima 7 (BG and SI), Broken Swords I & II, Tex Murphy Overseer...
[13:13:39] <Artaxerxes> talking of Tex Murphy, there is a kickstarter project to resurrect it: www.kickstarter.com/projects/texmurphy/tex-murphy-project-fedora/
[13:13:47] <Dominus> yeah, I'm a tablet fan. but moved on to the ipad :)
[13:13:56] <Artaxerxes> Dominus: can you play the same games on it?
[13:14:23] <Dominus> there is a port of dosbox that can run on a jailbroken ipad
[13:14:58] <Dominus> I haven't tried the more demanding games as the arm based ipad can't keep up with a tc1100
[13:15:16] <Artaxerxes> good to know.
[13:15:32] <Artaxerxes> I also played Siberia (so-so) and The Longest Journey (fabulous)
[13:15:50] <Artaxerxes> s/siberia/syberia/
[13:16:10] <Artaxerxes> Dominus: how long is your battery running for the tc1100
[13:16:33] <Dominus> Artaxerxes: check out BG keyring mod with the awesome new carpet by marzo
[13:16:37] <Dominus> flying carpet
[13:17:17] <Artaxerxes> I saw an image of that the other day. It's really cool that you can carry it!
[13:17:20] <Dominus> of my three batteries two don't work anymore and one has about three hours with everything tuned down
[13:17:56] <Artaxerxes> yeah, I get about 2h worth, running at full power. Since the commute is 45min one way, it's ok for now.
[13:18:35] <Dominus> the ipad has much more advantages there :)
[13:19:13] <Artaxerxes> true! like 10h now?
[13:19:44] <Artaxerxes> and the weight too
[13:20:01] <sh4rm4> wow, a phone with 10 hours of battery. amazing.
[13:20:10] <Dominus> and the ten hours only if you work with it
[13:20:20] <Dominus> ipad not iphone
[13:20:24] <sh4rm4> oh wait. my old nokia works for 2 weeks.
[13:20:30] <-- sh4rm4 was kicked from #exult by Dominus (sh4rm4)
[13:20:54] <Dominus> enough of him
[13:20:56] <Dominus> sorry :)
[13:20:57] <Artaxerxes> they said that fanbois were sensitive.... ;-)
[13:21:15] <Dominus> he's a constant pain with every topic :)
[13:21:25] <Artaxerxes> not familiar with the dude
[13:21:28] <Dominus> and yeah, it's true I'm a fanboi
[13:21:31] <Dominus> :)
[13:21:43] <Dominus> got to go, would love to continue chatting though :)
[13:21:47] <Dominus> bye bye
[13:21:52] <Artaxerxes> my brother swear by his ipad too
[13:21:57] <Artaxerxes> take care
[13:22:03] <Artaxerxes> nice chatting
[13:24:24] <Artaxerxes> aw shucks, I am asked away for a project...
[13:24:34] <Artaxerxes> take care all and enjoy the weekend.

[14:20:27] <wjp> Ultima promo on GOG this weekend, by the way
[14:24:21] <Wizardry_Dragon> I hope they pick up Savage Empire/Martian Dreams
[14:24:41] <Wizardry_Dragon> I actually have Savage Empire from an old Creative SoundBlaster game CD, but I never managed to pick up MD
[15:16:19] <Wizardry_Dragon> Food time, back later!
[16:45:57] <Dominus> hmm, expected that sh4rm4 to bounce right back
[16:48:43] <Wizardry_Dragon> Heh
[16:48:50] <Wizardry_Dragon> Twould appear not

[17:11:29] <Dominus> sorry Wizardry_Dragon not ignoring, just not really there...
[17:12:00] <Wizardry_Dragon> Its alright, just lurking while I play with legos, I mean shape the realm of TFL
[17:12:19] <Dominus> food for thought, I *remember* way back when the Ultima Collection came out that there were licensing problems with the Worlds of Ultima games. just can't find any reference to that anymore :)
[17:12:27] <Dominus> now I'm gone again :)
[17:12:48] <Wizardry_Dragon> GoG has figured out stickier things, so hopefully they can figure that out too.
[17:12:56] * Wizardry_Dragon crosses fingers.
