[10:07:46] * Darke bows, "Hi."
[10:07:53] <sb-x> Hi Darke
[10:08:02] <sb-x> How goes it?
[10:08:45] <Darke> Hmm... things are going a little confusing and a little tiring, but otherwise good. <grin> And how do things 'go' with you?
[10:10:10] <sb-x> Hmm...
[10:10:14] <sb-x> Good question
[10:10:21] <sb-x> I'm 'going' to sleep soon. :)
[10:11:10] <sb-x> I thought I should check out the channel, because I wasn't sure if there was no activity, or exultbot was broken.
[10:11:24] <sb-x> Unfortunately, exultbot is working fine it seems.
[10:11:34] * sb-x shrugs.
[10:11:59] * Darke grins. It's has indeed been a bit quiet lately.
[10:19:58] <sb-x> Until next time!

[11:24:22] --> Kefka has joined #exult
[11:49:16] --> Wumpus has joined #exult
[12:03:07] * Darke unidles and earperks, "Hello Wumpus, Kefka."
[12:05:13] * Wumpus bows to darke
[12:05:20] <Kefka> Hello Darke
[12:05:26] <Wumpus> I have a place to stay lined up in germany, w00t :-)
[12:05:28] * Kefka bows
[12:09:51] <Darke> Wumpus: Cool! Good luck with it. <grin>
[12:10:50] <Wumpus> thanks :) still not going just yet; need to talk with them some more... But theres now a very real chance I'll be going in only a little over 2 weeks :-)
[12:16:26] * Darke earperks. "Very cool. I certainly hope you enjoy your time over there. <grin>"
[12:28:32] <Kefka> hrm.. the 'Crash Me' Ultima Online server is down..
[12:28:41] <Wumpus> ?
[12:29:33] <Kefka> it was up last night.. it's purpose was to root out bugs
[12:30:03] <Kefka> i was the only one on though mostly..
[12:31:47] <Kefka> void Polymorph( cSocket *s, int gmindex, int creaturenumer);
[12:31:56] <Kefka> does there look like there is an error in that line?
[12:32:21] <Wumpus> assuming thats a prototype, not obviously so, no...
[12:32:24] <Wumpus> why, what does it say?
[12:32:36] <Wumpus> hmm that reminds me, exult wasn't compilng, and i didn't look into why, yet
[12:32:58] <Kefka> although the line is fine.. i don't think it is doing what it is intended to do
[12:33:08] <Kefka> craturenumer should be creaturenumber
[12:33:14] <Kefka> but i will have to check..
[12:33:21] <Wumpus> well, the variable names don't matter in the prorotype
[12:33:39] <Wumpus> you should even be able to do void Polymorph( cSocket *, int, int ); in the prototype...
[12:33:56] <Wumpus> of course including them is usually good for self-documentation :-)
[12:33:56] <Kefka> ah.. thats true..
[12:34:28] <Kefka> hmm.. off to try to find other misspellings
[12:34:53] <Kefka> looking at some of the source code for UOX, it looks kinda sloppy
[12:36:51] <Wumpus> whats the X for ?
[12:37:21] <Kefka> eXperiment
[12:37:32] <Kefka> basiaclly, its Ultima Online for free
[12:37:43] <Wumpus> hehe
[12:37:44] <Kefka> server emu
[12:37:50] <Wumpus> oh, a server... hmm :-)
[12:45:38] <Kefka> i know all of these people in the forums keep talking about an Ultima 7 Online
[12:46:26] <Kefka> If someone wanted to, they could take a blank map file for UO, create the u7 world, and play on there.. although plot wouldn't be available really..
[12:46:56] <Kefka> you'd have to script quite a bit
[12:47:08] <Wumpus> the map conversion, for a start :-)
[12:47:28] <Kefka> heh.. that should only take.. hmm.. a few months
[12:50:15] <Kefka> if a variable used an unsigned int and was given a value of 500, then something later subtracted 1000 from that variable, what would the result be?
[12:51:23] <Darke> MAX_UINT-500, I guess.
[12:51:53] <Kefka> ok.. so it would roll over
[12:52:09] <Wumpus> yeah
[12:52:17] <Wumpus> actually, depends, strictly speaking, on the language
[12:52:27] <Wumpus> (some may specify other things)
[12:53:33] <Kefka> so if someone defined the hp of something with an UINT, then a spell was cast on that thing, but instead of killing it, it had a very very large amount of HP, that could be the cause?
[12:53:47] <Wumpus> sure
[12:54:03] <Wumpus> its a pretty glaring error though ;-p
[12:54:06] <Kefka> yeah
[12:54:06] <Darke> Given the prototype, I'm guessing he's talking C/C++ though. *grin* Indeed, that could be the cause.
[12:55:27] <Kefka> hmm.. well, i am taking a break from looking at code.. time for some calculus!
[12:55:41] <Wumpus> ahh... an interesting interpretation of the term `break'
[13:02:02] <Wumpus> sleeeepies for little michael
[13:02:04] <Wumpus> good night :-)
[13:02:06] <-- Wumpus has left IRC ("No windows for this server")
[13:34:28] <Kefka> whoa..

[20:19:18] <Avatar> die Spielwelt ist kleiner
[20:19:25] <Fingolfin> SI ist super genial gut.
[20:19:34] <Avatar> ich finde Black Gate besser

[20:20:28] <Avatar> nö
[20:20:37] <-- Avatar was kicked from #exult by Fingolfin (Fingolfin)
[20:20:46] <Fingolfin> we germans are so arrogant =)
[20:20:52] <wjp> that seems to happen to him a lot, lately :-)
[20:20:58] <wjp> read the logs?
[20:21:29] <Fingolfin> no, I was away, at work in company, no reading of such earthly things as "logs" =)=
[20:21:33] * Fingolfin changes that now
[20:21:41] <wjp> was early this week, I think
[20:22:00] <wjp> (I've been not-here for most of this week, too)
[20:22:10] <Fingolfin> ok =)
[20:22:20] * Fingolfin saw that exult CVS has been busy, and goes to update/compile
[20:22:29] <wjp> mostly exult-studio
[20:22:48] --> Avatar has joined #exult
[20:22:50] <wjp> You should be able to create a game from scratch now!
[20:23:04] <wjp> (ie. all files can either be missed or created from scratch)
[20:23:16] <Avatar> EXULT FOR U8 ???
[20:23:26] <wjp> not anytime soon, I'm afraid :-)
[20:23:55] <Fingolfin> in fact, never
[20:24:02] <wjp> true... it won't be exult
[20:24:07] <Fingolfin> Exult is U7, nothing else
[20:24:10] <wjp> pentagram for u8 :-)
[20:24:13] <Fingolfin> well, in the future, also your own games
[20:24:15] <Fingolfin> aye =)
[20:24:17] <Avatar> i will play U8 in 800x600
[20:24:21] <Avatar> only
[20:24:24] <wjp> only 800x600?
[20:24:31] <Avatar> or 640x480
[20:24:35] <Avatar> a better resolution
[20:24:38] * wjp runs the map viewer in ~1400x1200 :-)
[20:24:52] <Avatar> the Avatar is then ssooooo small
[20:24:54] <wjp> no, slightly lower y-res
[20:25:17] <Avatar> i will play it in a better resolution
[20:25:19] <Avatar> !!!!
[20:26:22] * Fingolfin wonders if he could borrow that video beamer from a friend.... =)
[20:26:43] <Avatar> ..............
[20:27:04] <wjp> speaking of high-res: someone mentioned 'printing' the U7 map on A0 paper :-)
