[00:03:42] <Marzo> Malignant_Manor> Marzo: Are you planning a BIG Commitâ„¢? < No, I am just not having time to do anything
[00:04:34] <Marzo> Either that, or I am too tired when I do have the time
[00:06:12] <Marzo> <Malignant_Manor> My memory leak fix does not work so I give up. < It doesn't work because there isn't a memory leak there
[00:08:15] <Marzo> Whatever tool said there was is wrong
[00:10:08] <Marzo> And yes, other NPCs can have mana in Keyring; I suppose I forgot to make it work on cheat screen
[00:12:53] <Marzo> Regarding Usecode_internal::String, I suppose using a std::string instead (and making corresponding changes in many places) would help making the code clearer
[00:20:06] <Marzo> I have also been thinking of maybe replacing the stack by a std::vector or a std::stack
[00:20:30] <Marzo> And a million other things

[17:17:50] <Dominus> wth Marzo: for years no one complained about the Avatar pack and then just right after you mention that it is broken, someone realizes that...
[17:20:02] <Dominus> wjp, Marzo, Malignant, should we switch snapshots to SDL2? so far the only bug known so far is https://sourceforge.net/p/exult/bugs/1923/
[17:20:33] <Dominus> switching would perhaps expose more bugs which is probably better than not knowing...

[18:59:12] <Malignant_Manor> Dominus: it would be best to have a proper fix for that bug first.
[18:59:34] <Dominus> hi
[18:59:43] <Dominus> yes, perhaps
[18:59:50] <Dominus> otoh it is a rare bug
[18:59:58] <Malignant_Manor> force_bpp will stop it from happening but isn't a proper fix.
[19:04:18] <Malignant_Manor> What I put in this thread no longer or never worked. I might not have gotten the conditions to reproduce properly. The second solution was coded but I confirmed didn't work. http://exult.sourceforge.net/forum/read.php?f=1&i=1562070&t=516617
[19:06:18] <Dominus> hmm I read somewhere else about paletted surfaces and SDL2...
[19:06:24] <Malignant_Manor> I'm not sure the SDL2 code is properly deleting video data. I know there was at least one free functions not used that looked relevant but don't remember what it was..
[19:07:41] <Malignant_Manor> too bad Colourless is basically no longer working on Exult.
[19:08:49] <Dominus> there is something at http://stackoverflow.com/questions/29609544/how-to-use-palettes-in-sdl-2
[19:16:26] --> Sev has joined #exult
[19:17:42] <Dominus> we should also get rid of "if SDL_VERSION_ATLEAST(1, 3, 0)" if it differs from #if SDL_VERSION_ATLEAST(2, 0, 0)

[19:20:01] <Dominus> there is no need to keep the in between SDL version around. it was only kept because it made some ios porting more easier or so
[19:20:16] <Dominus> but that is all handled by the fork now with a proper xcode project file
