[11:26:38] <matt0> ...
[11:26:49] <wjp> ,,,
[11:26:53] <matt0> wjp!
[11:27:01] <wjp> Matt!
[11:27:09] <matt0> wanna see my latest star control 2 hack? =]
[11:27:15] <wjp> of course!
[11:27:36] <matt0> do you have sdl image?
[11:27:43] <wjp> I might...
[11:27:44] <matt0> I added that to the list of requirements so I could load textures
[11:27:45] * wjp checks
[11:28:08] <wjp> I have 1.1
[11:28:25] <matt0> that should suffice
[11:28:28] <matt0> I am installing it myself hehe
[11:28:36] <matt0> (I was developing in win32 most of the night)
[11:28:40] <wjp> maybe I should upgrade all of the SDL_* libs to 1.2 someday
[11:28:47] <matt0> it _should_ compile with 0 changes in linux now...
[11:28:52] <matt0> if I've done my coding correctly
[11:31:59] <matt0> ok... looks good
[11:32:09] <matt0> now if I can manage to zip this up without including all the win32 schlop
[11:35:59] <matt0> awesome xfer rate =]
[11:36:15] <wjp> yeah, I know :-)
[11:39:36] <matt0> what kind of 3d accelerator do you have?
[11:39:43] <wjp> tnt2
[11:39:48] <matt0> me too
[11:39:52] <wjp> but I haven't installed the drivers
[11:39:57] <matt0> eh?
[11:40:12] <matt0> you're using software rendering?
[11:40:53] <wjp> brb
[11:41:18] <matt0> I use a 1024x1024 texture in here.. (trouble for 3dfx cards hehe)... the rest are 256x256 to be 3dfx friendly
[11:42:36] <wjp> b
[11:42:44] <wjp> yeah, software rendering
[11:43:21] <matt0> awww...
[11:43:26] <matt0> it won't be nearly as impressive =(
[11:45:19] <wjp> not very fast :-)
[11:45:19] <wjp> libpng warning: Incomplete compressed datastream in iCCP chunk <-- I get 4 of these
[11:45:19] <wjp> and both the ships are white
[11:45:23] <matt0> no
[11:47:06] <wjp> planet looks good!
[11:47:18] <matt0> thx =]
[11:48:06] <wjp> hmm, when I get _really_ close, I see a bit of colour on both ships
[11:48:27] <matt0> hehe
[11:48:41] <matt0> I wouldn't assume your software rendering is authoritative =]
[11:49:06] <wjp> ooh, and the planet is purple
[11:49:32] <wjp> (I disabled the starfields to get an acceptable framerate, btw)
[11:49:33] <matt0> dang wjp!
[11:49:40] <matt0> I'm going to have to send you a screenshot =]
[11:49:46] <matt0> you disabled the star fields? hehe
[11:49:55] <matt0> you found your way through my code quickly =]
[11:50:00] <wjp> it ran at 5spf otherwise :-)
[11:50:12] <matt0> you know.. the latest nvidia drivers are really nice =]
[11:50:23] <wjp> seriously?
[11:50:29] <matt0> yes
[11:50:42] <matt0> what version of X are you running?
[11:50:49] <wjp> the ones I tried a while back were responsible for the only crash I had while running linux
[11:51:13] <wjp> and after that X stopped working
[11:51:17] <matt0> maybe I've just been lucky but ... they seem to be about as good as their windows counterparts
[11:51:27] <wjp> hmm... 4.0.1 I think
[11:51:44] <matt0> that should be ok for rendering
[11:51:51] <wjp> If I install RH71 I'll be at 4.0.2, or if I install Mandrake8 4.0.3
[11:52:35] <wjp> brb
[11:54:26] <wjp> and back again
[11:56:10] <matt0> ok I've got some screen shots for you =]
[11:56:25] <wjp> not too big I hope? :-)
[11:56:38] <matt0> http://www.xmission.com/~redflame/tcr1.png

[11:56:47] <matt0> http://www.xmission.com/~redflame/tcr2.png
[11:56:48] <matt0> 25k
[11:56:55] <matt0> that's how it's supposed to look, dangit! =]
[11:57:08] <wjp> ok, even I should be able to download them then :-)
[11:57:34] <wjp> oooh... the ships are coloured!
[11:58:51] <wjp> looks great
[11:58:53] <matt0> and look at that nice trilinear filtering action!
[11:58:59] <wjp> I really like the atmosphere effect
[11:59:26] <matt0> in the close up picture, those stars are actually single pixels hehe but the filtering makes them look good
[11:59:28] <matt0> thx
[12:13:07] <wjp> which version of the nvidia drivers do you have?

[14:24:20] --> ah42 has joined #exult
[14:30:15] <wjp> hi
[14:32:27] <ah42> hi
[14:33:11] <ah42> (I've never even heard of ultima 7)
[14:34:27] <ah42> but someone on another network was complaining about the lack of a debian package
[14:34:43] <ah42> (but I'm not an official maintainer)
[14:34:45] <wjp> I think we have one since a couple of days
[14:34:50] <ah42> aha
[14:35:06] <wjp> http://exult.sourceforge.net/download.shtml
[14:46:14] <ah42> heh, been about a week since he said that. I just got around to looking today
[14:51:35] --> Colourless has joined #Exult
[14:51:52] <wjp> hi
[14:51:56] <Colourless> hi
[14:52:29] <ah42> <newbie luser question> where can I get ultima? </nlq>
[14:52:43] <ariannerpg> :-)
[14:53:03] <ariannerpg> google: "Ultima 7 download free warez"
[14:53:10] <ariannerpg> :-\
[14:53:16] <ariannerpg> Buy it at Origin
[14:53:21] <ah42> origin?
[14:53:30] <Colourless> EA
[14:53:35] <ariannerpg> The creators of Ultima
[14:53:49] <ariannerpg> They have a pack with the 7 games
[14:53:52] <ariannerpg> I think
[14:54:29] <Colourless> 10 Actually. Akalabeth, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 7p2, 8
[14:55:04] <ah42> cheap?
[14:55:31] <ariannerpg> If you get Ultima, use exult whatever your OS is. Exult is better than the original game!
[14:56:21] <ah42> heh
[14:56:37] <ah42> what kind of a game is it?
[14:56:51] * ah42 isn't much of a gamer .... 12 month and I still haven't finished final fantasy
[14:57:16] <ah42> 7
[14:57:19] <ariannerpg> Ultima sucks on something faster than a 486
[14:58:20] <ah42> oh?
[14:58:37] <ariannerpg> Exult fix it!
[14:59:56] <ah42> heh
