[14:30:35] <wjp> hi
[14:30:40] <Colourless> hi
[14:35:46] * wjp wonders what Oblivious means with last post in the "is it just me?" thread
[14:36:11] * Colourless tries to ignore Oblivious
[14:36:19] <wjp> yes, I can see why :-)
[14:36:55] <Colourless> there is a 99% chance that whatever problems he has, he caused himself
[14:37:07] <Colourless> probably screwed around with the Midi conversion option
[14:38:16] <wjp> yeah, that would be my guess too
[14:38:55] <wjp> or maybe the "volume_curve", if that's still in
[14:39:06] <Colourless> yeah that's still therre
[14:41:44] <wjp> the "temporary dupre" bug seems to be somewhat reproducable
[14:41:51] <wjp> I wonder if I can reproduce it here...
[14:41:56] <Colourless> it is?
[14:42:15] <wjp> 'MV' apparently reproduced it
[14:54:40] <wjp> I can't, though :/
[14:56:01] <Colourless> whoa....
[14:56:05] * Colourless just found a bug
[14:56:48] <Colourless> i returned to the exult menu from the Serpent Isle main menu and the screen wasn't cleared so
[14:57:01] <Colourless> the serpent isle menu is in the background
[14:57:13] <wjp> hmm, nice :-)
[14:57:15] <Colourless> black gate does it as well
[14:57:32] <wjp> I probably caused this one when clearing up glitches on journey onward
[14:58:06] <Colourless> the fix would be to clear the screen when entering the exult menu
[14:59:33] <wjp> nah, my old fix is just buggy
[14:59:51] <Colourless> hmmm, tried to impliment a hack :-)
[15:01:13] <wjp> ok, fixed
[15:01:27] <Colourless> :-)
[15:01:42] * wjp hopes the other glitch didn't resurface now
[15:01:59] <wjp> looks ok; good :-)
[15:03:20] <wjp> committed
[15:06:11] <Colourless> :-)
[15:21:14] --> wjp_ has joined #exult
[15:21:15] <-- wjp has left IRC (Ping timeout for wjp[ip503c5297.speed.planet.nl])
[15:21:19] --- wjp_ is now known as wjp
[15:55:53] <Colourless> looking through someone elses code is bad enough.... going through someone's poorly designed, poorly formatted, poorly commented code is another thing all together
[15:56:27] <Colourless> 835 line in 1 function.... you've got to be kidding
[15:57:44] <wjp> what code would that be?
[15:58:24] <Colourless> code to read the models for dark engine games (Thief, Thief2, System Shock 2)
[15:58:49] <wjp> sounds messy
[15:59:32] <Colourless> it is
[16:01:00] <Colourless> it is almost a perfect example of what you aren't supposed to code like :-)
[16:01:13] <wjp> ouch :-)
[16:02:15] <Colourless> ahhhh, much better....
[16:02:43] * Colourless 'reformatted' the code
[16:02:50] <wjp> :-)
[16:03:36] <Colourless> more comments would be nice, but there is a lot of code for verbose output which makes it's easier to work out what's going on, but it make the messy
[16:13:11] <Colourless> going through that code is something for another day. now i have 'other' things I want to do
[16:16:40] <-- Colourless has left IRC (It's all about the xp. 2,300,000 and counting...)
