[12:55:12] <static_> hi all.
[13:00:44] <wjp> hi
[13:01:16] <static_> How goes wjp
[13:01:49] <wjp> I'm ok
[13:05:46] <static_> cool. i felt like dropping by to say how appreciative I am for exult :)
[13:06:47] <static_> stealth ported it to xbox recently too, works really well.
[13:09:34] <Colourless> hi wjp
[13:10:27] <static_> do you guys find it difficult to put in a lot of time into exult?
[13:17:10] <wjp> at times it's harder to resist putting a lot of time into it :-)
[13:17:17] <wjp> hi Ryan
[13:25:34] <static_> hehe cool.
[13:28:29] <wjp> although I have to say that this weekend was the first time in months that I spent a serious amount of time on it
[13:28:34] <wjp> busy with other things :-)
[13:29:00] <Colourless> exult is in such a state the finding time for it only mean finding time to find bugs
[13:29:36] <wjp> or backporting pentagram's config subsystem to it :-)
[13:29:45] <wjp> (which I took a shot at yesterday)
[13:29:49] <Colourless> :-)
[13:30:11] <wjp> it wasn't quite as plug-n-play as I thought it would be :-)
[13:30:35] <wjp> (the interfaced changed more than I remembered)
[13:31:39] <Colourless> pentagram's config also acts different too
[13:31:57] <static_> Exult certainly looks and feels perfect. Even if there are some bugs, I'm sure it's a lot less than in the original ;)
[13:32:25] * wjp actually fixed a potentially plot-stopping bug from the original a few days ago :-)
[13:32:29] <Colourless> exult always did write on update, pentagram's though needs to be explicitly saved
[13:32:45] <wjp> that was easily changed
[13:32:56] <Colourless> yeah :-)
[13:33:08] <wjp> only needed about 3 write() calls in various Configuration::set functions
[13:33:41] <static_> have you guys thought of taking upon another project after exult?
[13:33:51] * wjp points at pentagram.sf.net
[13:33:53] <Colourless> with such a change i would wait till after 1.2 :-)
[13:34:11] <wjp> yeah, I wasn't planning on committing it yet :-)
[13:34:26] <static_> ohhh wow. I thought by pentagram you ment the shapes viewer.
[13:34:40] <wjp> we've progressed just a bit beyond that :-)
[13:35:12] <Colourless> ultima 8 is partially functional
[13:35:35] <wjp> and pentagram implements part of U8's partial functionality ;-)
[13:35:44] <SB-X> Ch
[13:35:45] <Colourless> oh ha ha
[13:35:54] <SB-X> ?
[13:35:59] <wjp> *cough*... ok... bad joke :-)
[13:36:15] * Darke laughs!
[13:36:36] <static_> was the original ultima8 buggy?
[13:36:36] * Colourless knows where that is going
[13:39:58] <Darke> Not really. It's actually quite non-buggy compared to u7 and the like.
[13:40:28] <static_> does richard garriet keep in touch?
[13:42:04] <Darke> He's commented once or twice, but otherwise, no.

[15:42:44] <wjp> hm, I wouldn't object to doing a RC release before actually releasing 1.2
[15:43:43] <Colourless> personally, I don't care
[15:44:01] <Colourless> if we do a RC then it should be an actual code lock
[15:44:18] <Colourless> no changes except for bugs brought up during the rc period
[15:44:57] <wjp> yeah
[15:45:08] <wjp> I'd kind of like 1.2 to be really solid :-)
[15:45:16] <wjp> and we should branch
[15:45:55] <wjp> (either when releasing the RC or when releasing 1.2 itself)
[16:10:15] --> Zxcvb has joined #exult
[16:10:35] <Zxcvb> has anyone else had party members disappear when you tell them to leave and wait here?
[16:11:13] <Colourless> well, personally i've never experienced the problem
[16:11:17] <wjp> me neither
[16:11:23] <wjp> but I never really leave party members behind either
