[15:08:44] <Colourless> chanserv go to hell!
[15:09:23] <Colourless> that's better but I still mean what I said
[15:44:19] --> Sslaxx has joined #Exult
[15:44:24] <Sslaxx> Hello?
[15:44:31] <Colourless> hi
[15:44:55] <Sslaxx> Hello, Colourless.
[15:45:05] <Sslaxx> How goes?
[15:45:21] <Colourless> ok i guess
[15:45:40] * Sslaxx is glad to hear it.
[15:45:46] <Sslaxx> Better than going crap.
[15:47:24] <Colourless> heh, yeah
[15:47:30] * Sslaxx is going to have to look at that BG patch when he can get to his main machine.
[15:48:05] <Sslaxx> Oh, do you know if the team's going to add 'switch/case' to the UsecodeC compiler?
[15:50:03] <Colourless> i don't know much about the compiler. If it doesn't exist now, it probably wont be added
[15:52:28] <Sslaxx> Well, the patch comes with sourcecode with a .uc extension.
[15:52:39] <Colourless> yeah i know. :-)
[15:53:04] <Colourless> it also wont work with current versions of exult
[15:53:34] <Sslaxx> The patch?
[15:53:40] <Sslaxx> Or just the sourcecode?
[15:53:55] <Colourless> the patch
[15:54:11] <Sslaxx> I see. Any idea why not?
[15:55:12] <Colourless> I know exactly why. We made changes (bug fixes actually) to the usecode interpreter which then broke the patch that was made using inccorrect assumptions.
[15:55:57] <Colourless> both the usecode compiler, .uc file and the compiled usecode need updating in order to work again
[15:56:18] <Sslaxx> Gotcha.
[15:56:31] <Sslaxx> What's wrong with the .uc?
[15:57:04] <Colourless> it's wrong :-)
[15:57:15] * Sslaxx hees.
[15:57:20] <Sslaxx> Fair enough, but why?
[15:57:57] <Colourless> seriously, we were handling conversations completely wrongly. The uc file if used in it's current state will cause exult to have after you have finished talking to one of the new npc's
[15:58:17] <Colourless> ....cause exult to HANG after....
[15:58:24] <Sslaxx> Gotcha.
[15:59:43] <Sslaxx> What was wrong with the conversation code?
[16:00:52] * Sslaxx blinks at the "Problems with the music" thread.
[16:01:37] <Colourless> we were interpreting 2 opcode incorrectly. We didn't know what they were and finally worked out the were just for Begin and end conversation
[16:02:05] <Sslaxx> So... why were conversations working at all, then?
[16:02:44] <Colourless> hacks upon hacks upon hacks :-)
[16:03:19] * Sslaxx laughs!
[16:03:26] <Colourless> what we had implimented was vastly more complex than what was actually needed
[16:04:33] <Sslaxx> So all the hacks going to be able to be removed now?
[16:04:46] <Colourless> they already are
[16:04:56] <Colourless> this happened quite a few months ago now
[16:05:24] <Sslaxx> When was the island patch released, then?
[16:05:47] <Colourless> a looong time ago
[16:06:13] <Sslaxx> Yikes.
[16:06:21] <Colourless> what!!!!!! out of disk space.....
[16:06:31] <Sslaxx> What're you doing?
[16:06:44] <Colourless> decompressing a 500 k file :-)
[16:06:58] <Colourless> yes that is a k :-)
[16:07:09] <Sslaxx> You ran out of space decompressing 500k? Woah!
[16:08:04] <Colourless> no, i do'nt think i did....
[16:08:41] <Sslaxx> The link to the U7 conversion project is pointing to a closed site, you know.
[16:08:54] <Colourless> no, i don't :-)
[16:09:10] <Sslaxx> Heh. You do now.
[16:09:36] * Colourless is not webmaster :-)
[16:10:07] <Sslaxx> Oh, which Ultima's music do you like?
[16:10:52] <Colourless> all of them, but Ultima 8 by far has the best music
[16:11:26] * Sslaxx agrees with you there, Colourless.
[16:12:25] * Colourless has spent a lot of time creating soundfont to get truely amazing sounding songs from U8
[16:14:43] <Sslaxx> Neat.
[16:14:43] <Sslaxx> What soundcard do you have?
[16:14:43] <Colourless> SB Live (original)
[16:14:43] * Sslaxx currently has just a PCI128, but wants an Audigy.

[21:56:17] <Sslaxx> Hello?
[21:56:21] <wjp> hi?
[21:56:32] <wjp> :-)
[21:56:42] <Sslaxx> Hello, WJP!
[21:56:51] <Sslaxx> And how are you this evening?
[21:56:59] <wjp> ok, thanks
[21:57:27] <Sslaxx> Nice to hear.
[21:57:41] * Sslaxx prods matt_ and checks for signs of life.
[21:59:32] <Sslaxx> Seen the pic someone uploaded to the forum?
[21:59:38] * wjp nods
[22:00:26] <Sslaxx> Anime U7?
[22:00:37] <wjp> yeah :-)
[22:00:54] <Sslaxx> An anime Iolo? Yikes!
[22:01:00] <wjp> I just downloaded his faces.vga file
[22:01:14] <wjp> only avatar and one other char. have been changed
[22:01:21] <wjp> (both male & female av.)
[22:01:56] <Sslaxx> Who's the other character?
[22:02:00] <wjp> dunno
[22:02:31] <wjp> Caroline, according to Tenchi's post
[22:02:51] <wjp> although I don't remember who Caroline is
[22:03:28] <Sslaxx> Vesper?
[22:04:03] <Sslaxx> That pic on that thread's ENORMOUS!
[22:04:12] <wjp> yeah, it is
[22:04:21] <wjp> should I change the image to a link?
[22:04:25] <wjp> might be better
[22:04:32] <Sslaxx> Might be a good idea, yup.
[22:04:57] <Sslaxx> See he plays the German version of BG.
[22:07:36] * Sslaxx can't remember, but could you pick fruit from the apple trees on the Monk Isle in SI?
[22:07:44] <Sslaxx> As in the original.
[22:09:16] <wjp> I can't remember either
[22:10:19] <Sslaxx> I know the berry bushes work.
[22:10:33] <Sslaxx> Oh, and when you get the bottle, shouldn't the feed action work with that too?
[22:10:45] <Sslaxx> The Chalice. Something.
[22:12:22] <wjp> feed doesn't really work like in the original yet, IIRC
[22:13:22] * Sslaxx noddles.
[22:18:34] * Sslaxx is off for the night.
[22:18:39] <Sslaxx> Night, WJP!
