[01:43:02] <pupnik> hi wizardrydragon
[01:43:12] <wizardrydragon> Hi there
[01:43:12] --- Marzo_away is now known as Marzo
[01:53:55] <pupnik> interested in working on Nokia version of Exult? wizardrydragon Marzo ?
[01:54:29] <Marzo> It would be hard for me; I don't have a Nokia, to testing would be hard
[01:54:38] <Marzo> s/to/so
[01:55:56] <pupnik> get one :)
[01:56:11] <pupnik> or get a pandora. www.openpandora.org
[01:58:09] <Marzo> In all likelyhood, it will be a small fortune when -- if -- it ever gets to Brasil
[01:58:29] <Marzo> And I don't have much use for portable devices anyway
[01:58:41] <wizardrydragon> I don't have a nokia either, I have a hack-ish java-wrapped version of Exult for my Sony Ericsson phone though.
[01:58:54] <wizardrydragon> A very old version of the 1.4 snapshot, there, though.
[01:59:10] * wizardrydragon abuses the word "though". A lot. Poor word.
[02:13:43] <pupnik> hmm java-wrapped? strange
[02:14:02] <pupnik> well the next nokia linux tablet should have a phone radio in it
[02:16:01] <wizardrydragon> Java is what most phones use to run applications, so it's what I had to work with. Exult however is not written in Java, so rather than try to convert all the C code to Java, I basically ended up hacking something in Java to act as something of a virtual machine.
[02:16:07] <wizardrydragon> An emulator for an emulator :-)
[02:20:06] <pupnik> amazing
[02:20:37] <wizardrydragon> Its neat as a novelty, but trying to play exult with a phone keyboard isnt the best thing in the world
[02:29:11] <pupnik> yes, the ui experience needs work on the linux tablets also
[02:29:20] <pupnik> hoping to motivate someone to work on it
[02:30:00] <wizardrydragon> heheh
[02:30:16] <wizardrydragon> It's qute a pickle really. Less so on tablets at least I'd think.
[02:32:57] <pupnik> yes. there's just really the missing right click
[02:33:04] <pupnik> but small details are making it not fun
