[09:16:39] * servus draws some pants on exultbot
[09:17:16] <Colourless> whoa
[09:18:42] <servus> the uw creatures are just so silly! i feel bad drawing them faithfully :-)
[09:19:05] <servus> the first human you see in uw1 has a head that's as wide as his chest, and longer than his femur... plus his boots are bright red :P
[09:22:08] <Colourless> are you sure that's a human?
[09:24:47] <servus> noncorporeal beings need clothing too
[09:25:04] <servus> besides, im already drawing pants so i figured why not? :)

[15:35:49] <wjp> if everything went correctly, we should have a temporary replacement server in place now :-)
[15:36:01] <wjp> (while the original gets repaired)
[15:36:10] <wjp> so let's hope things stay stable now :-)
[15:37:06] <Colourless> :-)
[16:57:15] --> Dominus has joined #exult
[16:57:19] --- ChanServ gives channel operator status to Dominus
[17:01:32] <wjp> hi
[17:01:48] <Dominus> I seem to have a little driver issue with Exult, I guess
[17:02:17] <wjp> do the docs mention the meaning of the little-speaker-icon-with-a-red-x anywhere?
[17:02:47] <wjp> what symptoms are you seeing?
[17:04:09] <Dominus> when I change a video setting, say scale x1 to scale x2 I end up with a black screen
[17:04:21] <Dominus> I need to press esc to get out of it
[17:04:30] <Dominus> I mean to get a picture
[17:04:53] <wjp> with which scaler?
[17:05:03] <wjp> fullscreen or windowed?
[17:05:26] <wjp> yikes
[17:05:39] <wjp> I get some palette issues when I change scaling with the point scaler :-)
[17:06:01] <wjp> oh, it's not your driver
[17:06:04] <wjp> happens here too
[17:06:25] <Dominus> ok, then I'm relieved sort off
[17:06:49] <wjp> with non-8bit scalers I get a black screen
[17:06:52] <Dominus> got to be away for a moment, something crashed in our appartment
[17:06:55] <wjp> with 8bit scalers the palette is screwed up
[17:06:58] --- Dominus is now known as Dominus|away
[17:06:59] <wjp> I have to go
[17:07:22] <wjp> probably won't be back tonight, so see you tomorrow

[17:32:53] --> Ember has joined #exult
[17:34:39] <Colourless> dominuswere you attempting to change scalers in the exult main menu?
[17:34:39] <Colourless> cause it's broken :-)
[17:34:39] <Dominus> no in game
[17:34:39] <Colourless> oh
[17:34:44] <Colourless> fullscreen i take it
[17:34:44] <Dominus> yep
[17:35:18] <Dominus> and happens for you too?
[17:35:29] <Colourless> no idea
[17:35:39] <Dominus> :-)
[17:37:00] <Colourless> whatever version of exult i currently have built doesn't have a problem
[17:38:18] <Dominus> hm, then recompile and tell us if it is a gcc problem :-)
[17:38:30] <Colourless> that... is not possible
[17:39:08] <Dominus> compiling or gcc bug?
[17:39:54] <Colourless> well, my gcc isn't.... well... upto date :-)
[17:40:24] <Dominus> I meant, compile it with msvc and if you still don't run into that problem it might be a gcc bug
[17:40:51] <Colourless> that would require me to update my exult cvs :-)
[17:41:10] * Dominus throws arms to the ceiling
[17:41:36] <Colourless> ah, lets see what happens
[17:43:17] <Colourless> i would be extremely surprised if exult still compiles
[17:44:11] <Dominus> your last compile is that old?
[17:44:44] <Colourless> yes :-)
[17:45:12] <Colourless> Exult version 1.1.0cvs
[17:45:13] <Colourless> Built at: Feb 6 2003 16:31:19
[17:45:34] <Colourless> Exult.exe - 14 error(s), 1 warning(s)
[17:45:42] <Dominus> yeah, that's old
[17:47:40] <Colourless> ok, compiled
[17:49:10] <Colourless> ok, well someone screwed something up
[17:49:30] <Dominus> 2003-04-26 Willem Jan Palenstijn <wjpalenstijn@users.sourceforge.net>
[17:49:31] <Dominus> * palette.cc: removed unnecessary palette changes
[17:49:33] <Dominus> ?
[17:50:06] <Dominus> hte first thing I noticed that *could* maybe, perhaps be related
[17:51:05] <Colourless> quite possibly that might be it
[17:51:45] <Dominus> and I thought my new system is faulty (like I can't look at the audio codecs section of my multimedia properties anymore without control panel crashing)
[17:53:12] <Colourless> you must have a messed up codec installed
[17:55:11] <Dominus> nah, it is alos with videocodec, media something device, legacy audio and video devices there. When I go to properties they crash
[17:55:31] <Dominus> but yes, got to go through my codec stuff
[17:56:08] <Dominus> it's not *that* important but disturbing somewhat
[17:57:14] <Colourless> hmm, something died then
