[00:56:43] --> DraX has joined #exult
[01:24:20] <-- DraX has left IRC (Read error to DraX[ts002d17.gnv-fl.concentric.net]: Connection reset by peer)
[02:33:36] --> matt0 has joined #exult
[03:51:58] --> DraX has joined #exult
[03:52:08] <DraX> this is strange
[03:52:27] <Kirben> ??
[03:52:47] <DraX> i built in timidity to find out if having a midi device would work
[03:52:48] <DraX> no change
[03:54:37] <DraX> i don't actully think the problem is sound
[03:54:49] * DraX has to remeber to take his uc cd to his moms to try the beos version
[03:54:51] <DraX> i downlaoded it
[03:55:03] <DraX> but when i run it nothing happens, so i suppose i need the static files for it to load at all
[04:04:35] <Kirben> using latest cvs source code ?
[04:04:50] <DraX> Kirben, no, i have 0.91alpha2
[04:05:03] <DraX> i don't have the time to download cvs every day, or the cpu power to build it at this point
[04:06:49] <Kirben> many changes since then, shame there are no snapshots for other platforms
[04:07:33] <DraX> Kirben, being that exult has YET to run on openbsd, i don't think that would help me
[04:08:16] <DraX> thats what i'm trying to do actully
[04:10:54] <Kirben> several openbsd changes recently:
[04:10:55] <Kirben> 2001-02-25 Willem Jan Palenstijn <palenstijn@wanadoo.nl>
[04:10:56] <Kirben> * configure.in, acconfig.h: configure changes for OpenBSD support
[04:10:56] <Kirben> * utils.cc, gump_utils.cc: attempt at OpenBSD support. (thanks to Alex Botero-Lowry)
[04:10:56] <Kirben> * Midi.cc: disable forked_player in OpenBSD
[04:11:24] <DraX> Kirben, thanks to me :)
[04:11:49] <Kirben> ah, was not sure if you did part or all of that
[04:12:05] <DraX> but sense they were my suggestions, i have all of them already in my tree
[04:12:12] <DraX> and my connection is REALLY bad right now
[04:12:17] <DraX> so cvs'ing just isn't working
[04:13:36] <DraX> i think i have the disable forked_player in my code, too
[04:13:42] <DraX> but i'm not exactuly sure that might be new
[04:13:55] <DraX> i know i had to make modifcations to it to make it build
[04:13:57] <DraX> so i think i do
[04:17:25] <DraX> i'm gonna try to cvs it, and then tar it up at school, and bring it home
[04:17:30] <DraX> the source is relativly small anyway
[04:18:04] <Kirben> would zip file be easier ?
[04:18:25] <Kirben> http://io.spaceports.com/~kirben/Exult.zip
[04:18:31] <Kirben> current cvs source
[04:18:40] <DraX> Kirben, how big?
[04:18:58] <Kirben> (937KB)
[04:19:02] <DraX> zipfile is never easier, but i can deal :)
[04:19:14] <DraX> i can also fit it on a disk :)
[04:19:26] * DraX emails address to himself
[04:19:44] <Kirben> I do daily cvs source code snapshots at http://io.spaceports.com/~kirben/ too
[04:20:41] <DraX> sense i can't really code, i was going to donate lots of my time to trying it out on as many machines as i can
[04:20:45] <DraX> and trying to keep upto date
[04:20:57] <DraX> the ports, if they work
[04:21:53] <DraX> i might be able to pick up the beos port
[04:21:53] <Kirben> amazing how many ports there are for exult
[04:22:04] <DraX> i could actully pull off atleast weekly cvs of it
[04:22:17] <DraX> i could have a disk to take the cvs source home
[04:22:20] <DraX> and the bins to school
[04:22:25] <DraX> grab the source at school
[04:22:32] <DraX> build it on my beos box
[04:22:39] <DraX> then take the disk with the bin to school
[04:22:39] <DraX> upload
[04:22:42] <DraX> back and forth
[04:22:59] <Kirben> a lot of work
[04:23:00] <DraX> and i might beable to do weekly/mounthly for openbsd if we ever get it working
[04:23:15] <DraX> Kirben, it's the least i can do, ultima is my FAVORITE game
[04:23:32] <Kirben> I thought of try beos snapshots myself but no idea how to get it working without real mode dos
[04:23:41] <Kirben> using WinME here
[04:24:28] <DraX> beos dosen't have anything to do with windows....
[04:24:53] <DraX> my fastest box is running beos, so doing the builds on it wouldn't be much of a chore
[04:24:56] <DraX> exult builds quite fast
[04:24:59] <DraX> 10mins on my 233
[04:25:11] <Kirben> how to make to boot straight to beos though ? windows installer only includes pif for it
[04:25:37] <DraX> oh, that thing
[04:25:38] * DraX has the cd
[04:25:44] <DraX> full version
[04:25:49] <DraX> on a native bfs partition
[04:26:09] <Kirben> bootable cd ?
[04:26:23] <DraX> ya
[04:26:45] <Kirben> is that downloadable ? or retail only ?
[04:26:48] <DraX> * Dead bodies decay after several game-clock hours.
[04:26:50] <DraX> retail only
[04:26:56] <DraX> that wasn't standard in the real ultima....
[04:27:15] <DraX> $60 or something with a book
[04:27:19] <DraX> it's sort of a boxset
[04:27:28] <Kirben> well dead bodies did disappear, although not the major npcs
[04:28:02] <DraX> oh ya, if you slaughtered guards
[04:28:04] <DraX> and went away
[04:28:07] <DraX> there bodies would be gone
[04:28:12] <Kirben> I will keep an eye out for it in the shops
[04:28:49] <DraX> i'm also going to TRY(deffinete on the TRY) to port it to hp-ux
[04:28:55] <DraX> but i doubt that will be done easily/at all
[04:29:15] <Kirben> how many different unix versions are there ?
[04:29:30] <DraX> really only linux ones
[04:29:42] <DraX> openbsd is the first port off of linux in the unix world
[04:29:51] <DraX> and technically it "works"
[04:29:53] <DraX> it builds
[04:30:00] <DraX> but it freezes before anything happens
[04:30:03] <DraX> i think due to sound problems
[04:31:12] <DraX> well tommorow i will download the cvs, and try to build it...
[04:31:14] <DraX> but i'm gonna go

[17:58:19] <Fingolfin> AI is working nicely now
[17:58:19] <wjp> so I see :-)
[17:58:23] <Fingolfin> but it is quite stupid :/
[17:58:36] <wjp> AI usually is :-)
[18:05:09] <wjp> the english words 'gnome' and 'gnu' both have silent g's according to my dictionary
