[18:26:33] <Fingolfin> when/if dominus turns up, I need to get him to update the readme ;)
[18:27:10] <Colourless> and you are telling us because? ;-)
[18:28:22] <Fingolfin> I am to telling you, I am telling the log
[18:28:43] <Colourless> ah
[18:30:59] <Kefka> Fingolfin, is that you mentioned in the gAIM CVS logs?
[18:31:23] <Fingolfin> might be, I submitted a small patch to their configure.in/automake some days ago
[18:31:40] <Kefka> ah.. ok
[18:34:36] * Fingolfin tries to get his name spread over as many OSS projects as possible ;)
[18:35:19] <Colourless> :)
[18:37:40] <Colourless> i think i'll be off now

[20:40:57] <wjp> argh... spam on the ML?
[20:41:26] <wjp> hey... it seems we are specially selected to quality for a premium vacation package and pentium pc giveaway!
[20:41:27] <Fingolfin> ?
[20:41:33] * Fingolfin launches his email app
[20:41:35] <wjp> s/quality/qualify/
[20:41:48] <Fingolfin> WTF!
[20:42:03] <wjp> hurry! we need to confirm our entry within 24 hours of receipt!
[20:42:23] <Fingolfin> Wooohooo!
[20:42:27] <Fingolfin> we are rich!!!
[20:42:32] <Fingolfin> I knew exult would pay off one day ;)
[20:42:33] <wjp> a vacation for the whole team! yay!
[20:42:50] <Fingolfin> now I know how jeff can be on vacation all the time
[20:43:24] <Fingolfin> ok, whom do we report that to... hmmm
[20:44:40] <wjp> I doubt mailing to abuse@btamail.net.cn would help... it would probably only make it worse
[20:47:42] <wjp> now we just need to hope nobody on the ML decides it would be a good idea to actually confirm this mail using that link
[20:48:23] <Fingolfin> ;)
[20:49:38] <wjp> I think I'll go build the BeOS alpha5 binary
[20:49:43] <wjp> brb
[20:49:45] <-- wjp has left IRC ([x]chat)
[20:51:27] --> wjp has joined #exult
[20:54:29] <Fingolfin> wb
[20:54:35] <wjp> thx
[20:57:35] <Fingolfin> hm, and I should reboot to OS X to get *that* ready ;) I hit some problem when I tried it at noon (before I had to leave)...

[21:10:09] <fingolfin> uhm wait, why do you come in after me?!?!
[21:10:12] * fingolfin is confused
[21:10:20] <wjp> I just rebooted back to linux
[21:11:04] <fingolfin> he ok ;)
[21:11:15] <fingolfin> so, did you release for BeOS?
[21:11:24] <fingolfin> and what about windows anyway?
[21:11:29] <wjp> not yet
[21:11:35] <wjp> I'm just uploading the file now
[21:16:21] <wjp> wow, releasing sure is a lot faster now that Jeff didn't enter the entire changelog
[21:20:51] <fingolfin> hehe
[21:21:50] <wjp> hmm, although finally having a half-decent connection might have something to do with it too
[21:24:30] <fingolfin> ;))
[21:56:38] <wjp> fingolfin: did you update the homepage?
[21:57:01] <wjp> if so, you forgot to update the link to the SF files list
[22:08:43] <fingolfin> hm
[22:09:00] <fingolfin> I did the update, yeah; the link to SF files changed?!?
[22:10:31] <wjp> well, we still link to alpha4
[22:10:43] <wjp> http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=2335&release_id=41504
[22:10:51] <wjp> which now should be
[22:10:56] <fingolfin> ok ok
[22:11:00] <fingolfin> I´ll fix it ;)
[22:11:03] <wjp> ....&release_id=49760
[22:11:34] * wjp is doing some reading in our htdocs dir.
[22:11:40] <wjp> quite a lot changed in there :-)
[22:11:54] <fingolfin> hm, really? ;)
[22:12:11] <wjp> and all files are formatted macos-style
[22:12:26] <wjp> (only CRs)
[22:12:59] <fingolfin> well, I am using emacs to edit them on site
[22:13:48] <fingolfin> any decent editor can open unix/mac/win line breaks anyway
[22:13:56] <fingolfin> s/open/parse/
[22:14:02] <wjp> less seems to have a problem with it, somehow
[22:14:17] <fingolfin> <sigh>
[22:14:23] <wjp> indeed :-)
[22:14:26] <fingolfin> write a perl script to convert ´em all then ;)
[22:14:45] <wjp> s/\r/\n/g
[22:15:03] <fingolfin> but actually, it is bad less doesn´t support those; hmm... that would be a nice feature for less, auto-detect line breaks
[22:15:16] <fingolfin> emacs does it, all macos editors I use do it, why not less? ;)
[22:15:29] <fingolfin> download page updated
[22:15:52] <fingolfin> hey cool, somebody has uploaded a BeOS binary!
[22:16:05] <wjp> wow, I wonder who ;-)
[22:16:31] <fingolfin> maybe dominus got a BeOS system on his mom´s laptop?
[22:16:37] <fingolfin> 8-)
[22:16:42] <wjp> :-)

[22:26:04] <fingolfin> what´s the big deal with the two-ring-paperdoll bug?

[23:25:22] <Dougy> anyone around?
[23:26:35] <Dougy> hello?
[23:28:18] <silvery_and_scaly> only me
[23:28:44] <Dougy> um I have a stupid question
[23:28:51] <Dougy> how do you install exult?
[23:29:05] <silvery_and_scaly> what operating system are you using?
[23:29:09] <Dougy> win 98 se
[23:29:14] <silvery_and_scaly> me too
[23:29:26] <silvery_and_scaly> well, first you copy U7 to your hard disk
[23:29:33] <Dougy> done
[23:29:38] <silvery_and_scaly> no need to run the u7 install program
[23:29:48] <Dougy> done again
[23:29:52] <silvery_and_scaly> then, you download the Exult binary snapshot
[23:30:03] <Dougy> v0.94alpha5?
[23:30:11] <silvery_and_scaly> yes
[23:30:20] <Dougy> BeOS binary this one?
[23:30:45] <silvery_and_scaly> there are binaries for a few OS's: Windows, Linux, BeOS, Mac..
[23:30:59] <Dougy> which one is ths windows one
[23:31:16] <Kefka> Dougy: there isn't a windows binary for alpha5
[23:31:31] <Kefka> you have to wait a day or so
[23:31:35] <Dougy> oh ok
[23:31:43] <Dougy> so what version should i go with?
[23:31:48] <silvery_and_scaly> you can still download the current development version
[23:31:53] <Dougy> Windows (95/98/ME/NT/2000) Binary (0.93alpha4)?
[23:32:16] <Kefka> no
[23:32:18] <Kefka> http://exult.sourceforge.net/snapshots/Exultwin32.exe
[23:32:25] <Kefka> is yoru best bet..
[23:32:26] <silvery_and_scaly> The "Windows 9x/ME/NT/2000 binary snapshot"
[23:32:27] <Dougy> sweet thanks
[23:32:50] <Kefka> or you could compile the source
[23:33:23] <Dougy> i have no idea what that means so i think I will stick with the other one
[23:33:26] <Kefka> heh
[23:33:26] <Kefka> ok
[23:33:55] <Dougy> i'll give it a test run and see if it works, brb
[23:33:58] <-- Dougy has left IRC ()
[23:35:35] * fingolfin comes back
[23:35:46] <fingolfin> Kefka, silvery_and_scaly: thx for doing support work! ;)
[23:38:31] --> Dougy has joined #exult
[23:38:35] <Dougy> dear god thats sweet
[23:38:51] <fingolfin> ;)
[23:39:13] <Dougy> seriously, the new music is good too
[23:39:16] <Kefka> ah
[23:39:20] <Kefka> np
[23:39:24] <Dougy> is there anyway to make it fullscreen?
[23:39:37] <Dougy> or is that the best way to keep it for the best resolution
[23:39:46] <fingolfin> you can make it fullscreen
[23:39:54] <fingolfin> go to the game menu (ESC key usually)
[23:40:00] <fingolfin> then video options, then fullscreen
[23:40:23] <Dougy> execellent, thanks again, I think i will play u7 for the next few hours, seeya!
[23:40:27] <-- Dougy has left IRC ()
[23:40:40] <silvery_and_scaly> another satisfied user :)
[23:40:46] <Kefka> another satisfied customer
[23:40:50] <Kefka> heh
[23:41:27] <Kefka> gotta get dressed to go pick up pizza
[23:41:37] <Kefka> back in a few

[23:41:52] <Kefka> heh, i'll fedex a slice
[23:42:08] <fingolfin> =]
[23:54:50] --> Dougy has joined #exult
[23:55:03] <Dougy> hi back again, one more question has sound been implemented?
[23:55:19] <fingolfin> well
[23:55:23] <fingolfin> read the FAQ / docs!
[23:55:23] <fingolfin> ;)
[23:55:31] <Dougy> good idea!
[23:55:38] <fingolfin> you need SFX soundpacks for SFX, and midi should work out of the box
[23:55:46] <fingolfin> there are two sample soundpacks on the exult homepage
[23:56:00] <Dougy> which is the best
[23:56:19] <fingolfin> rumors are some fans made better ones using original U7 sound data, but those are only half-legal
[23:56:21] <fingolfin> *cough*
[23:56:38] <Dougy> heh
[23:56:47] <Dougy> thanks again, i think i check the faq
[23:56:52] <-- Dougy has left IRC ()
[23:57:22] <fingolfin> why is he popping in and out here? why not just stay? ;M)
[23:58:59] <silvery_and_scaly> maybe he has an expensive dial-up connection
[23:59:16] <fingolfin> could be, right, forgot that since I got DSL ;)
