[19:36:56] <Flooder_> Ho-hum
[19:45:36] <Baastuul> Hello!
[19:45:56] <Flooder_> Hellou
[19:46:03] <Flooder_> what's up?
[19:46:11] <Baastuul> Not a whole lot!
[19:46:15] <Baastuul> Do you know about the Kalevipoeg, Flooder?
[19:46:20] <Flooder_> hmm
[19:47:15] <Flooder_> nope, it's some estonia national epic
[19:47:34] <Baastuul> They copied your Kalevala!
[19:47:34] <Baastuul> The curs!
[19:47:46] <Flooder_> indeed
[19:47:51] <Baastuul> I'm about 200 pages into the Kalevala, actually.
[19:47:55] <Baastuul> It's become more entertaining.
[19:48:04] <Flooder_> too heavy reading for me :P
[19:48:18] <Baastuul> It's actually not too bad!
[19:48:27] <Flooder_> I believe that
[19:48:48] <Baastuul> It feels more down-to-earth in certain parts than some of the other epics, mainly because the Kalevala was gathered from folk poetry and all that.
[19:49:08] <Flooder_> mmkay
[19:49:10] <Baastuul> :(
[19:49:16] <Flooder_> maybe I read it when I'm old and can't move around anymore
[19:49:17] <Flooder_> :P
[19:49:17] <Baastuul> haha
[19:50:18] <Baastuul> Been playing any good games recently?
[19:51:39] <Flooder_> yep
[19:52:46] <Flooder_> but waiting still my Xbox elite to play great games :P
[19:53:18] <Flooder_> too bad I can't play Ultima 7 in HD with that
[19:55:05] <Flooder_> pardon me, I meant Xbox 360 elite
[19:56:12] <Flooder_> hmph. soon I have to go bed. 4 days summer job left, then starts my long 3 days vacation before studies :P
[19:56:29] <Baastuul> hehehe
[19:56:33] <Baastuul> OK!
[19:56:36] <Baastuul> I have to go to work right now anyway.
[19:56:37] <Baastuul> Bye!
[19:57:21] <Flooder_> oh, ok , bye \o

[22:40:29] <meepmeep> hello
[22:40:43] <pupnik> hei
[22:40:58] <meepmeep> kind of quiet now . . .
[22:41:04] * pupnik activates the Chicken Ramen Power
[22:41:25] <meepmeep> pupnik, are you a bot?
[22:41:37] <pupnik> sometimes little better than a bot, but no
[22:41:53] <meepmeep> haha, sometimes i get fooled
[22:42:31] <pupnik> http://pupnik.de/exult770.html
[22:42:48] <pupnik> http://pupnik.de/Exult_Ultima_VII_Nokia_770_02.jpg
[22:44:01] <meepmeep> that's pretty sweet
[22:44:16] <pupnik> yeah it works out nice on an 800x480 screen with scale2x
[22:44:34] <meepmeep> i was debating which scaler to use
[22:44:35] <pupnik> i haven't touched it since may 3 though
[22:44:42] <meepmeep> that side-by-side view makes it easier to decide
[22:44:53] <pupnik> :)
[22:45:06] <meepmeep> hey pupnik, is there a way to change the yellow, gothic font exult uses?
[22:45:40] <pupnik> i can search for a file that looks like 'font'
[22:46:04] <meepmeep> i'm guessing that this is a function of the original game
[22:46:18] <meepmeep> but that gothic font gives me a headache
[22:47:45] <meepmeep> i tried doing a search on exult's home page and google but i didn't get much luck
[22:47:49] <pupnik> exult770cvs/fnames.h:#define PATCH_FONTS "<PATCH>/fonts.vga"
[22:48:06] <meepmeep> ah, i know where that file is
[22:48:21] <meepmeep> it's a part of the original game
[22:50:08] <meepmeep> when i do a "file FONTS.VGA", it's just data and strings doesn't show up much
[22:51:01] <meepmeep> do you have any idea how to replace this file to use a different font?
[22:52:08] <pupnik> http://exult.sourceforge.net/studio.php
[22:52:16] <pupnik> go to section 9.4 and look at ipack
[22:52:25] <pupnik> and expack
[22:52:55] <pupnik> you might be able to convert the fonts.vga to individual pdx files, edit them, then repack into a new fonts.vga
[22:53:00] <pupnik> *pcx
[22:53:09] <pupnik> though i am just guessing from the google search
[22:53:35] <meepmeep> lol, darn you and your elite search skills
[22:53:49] <meepmeep> i've been looking for this info for a day or so
[22:54:36] <pupnik> thanks. sometimes it just takes another person. happens to me too

[22:56:10] <pupnik> wb Colourless
[22:57:10] <Colourless> hiya
[22:57:22] <pupnik> i've done about 15 ports since exult so i haven't done any optimization / UI work since may
[22:57:38] <pupnik> well, then there's beer, games and RL interfering too
[22:57:50] * Colourless suggests you're crazy
[22:58:25] <meepmeep> one of the great games in RL is called sex; i play it all the time
[22:58:33] <meepmeep> by myself or with others
[22:58:42] <meepmeep> mostly by myself though
[22:59:30] <pupnik> i got a virtual keyboard that works ontop of sdl fullscreen now, but having trouble getting it to pass input to sdl
[22:59:37] <pupnik> when sdl is not fullscreen xkbd works fine
[23:00:08] <pupnik> so i'm skipping this and just naming avatar 'Avatar' and writing the datetime as the savefilename
[23:01:26] <pupnik> http://pupnik.de/xkbd_m_bottom.gif xkbd working with non fullscreen sdl
