[12:45:39] <Colourless> hi
[12:50:11] <Darke> Hi.
[12:51:22] * Darke notes neither the universe, nor the world has yet ended, so we seem to be safe for the moment. *grin*
[12:52:28] <Colourless> i wouldn't be so sure... do you see any one for europe here in #exult?
[12:52:47] * Darke points to exultbot. *grin*
[12:53:06] <Colourless> exultbot isnt' a person
[12:53:53] * Darke shhhhes! Colourless. Don't tell him that! There's not telling how exultbot's dreams may be shattered with this snippet if information!

[13:11:40] <wjp> Europe is still safe too :-)
[13:11:47] <Colourless> L-)
[13:11:48] <Colourless> :-)
[13:12:13] <wjp> there was that little incident with the endless rain yesterday, though
[13:13:16] * Darke gasps in amazement, then pouts. No fair! He didn't get to destroy europe!
[13:13:43] <wjp> speaking of destroying... I have a watcher's keep to attend to ;-)
[13:14:03] * wjp killed Sendai last night
[13:15:14] <Colourless> :-)
[13:39:50] * Darke yawns and hops off to his nice warm hole to sleep. Night all!

[13:57:35] --> nooone has joined #exult
[13:57:38] <nooone> aaaaaaah
[13:57:41] <nooone> hey all :)))
[13:57:46] <nooone> anybody there?
[13:58:03] <Colourless> no, we are all just illusions
[13:58:20] <nooone> kewl :)
[13:58:33] <nooone> Can you may explain me how to install exult?
[13:58:40] <nooone> I installed the main programme
[13:58:44] <nooone> on my zaurus...
[13:58:57] <nooone> but I dunno what to do with the original files...
[13:59:35] <Colourless> hmm, i'm not the person to ask about those sorts of things.
[13:59:41] <nooone> :(
[13:59:48] <nooone> do you have installed it?
[13:59:55] <Colourless> i don't have a z
[14:00:13] <Colourless> i don't even use linux :-)
[14:00:30] <nooone> :(
[14:00:34] <nooone> but you play exult?
[14:01:19] <Colourless> yeah
[14:01:28] <nooone> and on what system?
[14:01:31] <Colourless> windows
[14:01:36] <nooone> oh
[14:01:42] <nooone> thats good :)
[14:01:46] <nooone> what windows do you use?
[14:01:55] <Colourless> XP
[14:01:58] <nooone> me too!
[14:02:03] <nooone> so you´re the right man...
[14:02:22] <nooone> for the zaurus... I need to install the game first...
[14:02:23] <nooone> but
[14:02:29] <nooone> when I start the instal.exe
[14:02:35] <nooone> there is a error...
[14:03:00] <nooone> like
[14:03:02] <nooone> Something has put your system in protected mode
[14:03:02] <nooone> Ultima VII - The Black Gate cannot run in this mode
[14:03:02] <nooone> demove the offending software and put your system in real mo
[14:03:02] <nooone> to play the game.
[14:03:02] <nooone> Press any key to continue, ESC to cancel...
[14:03:13] <nooone> how did you install it?
[14:03:13] <Colourless> you can ignore that error
[14:03:20] <nooone> but it won´t install...
[14:03:27] <Colourless> it should install
[14:03:32] <nooone> what should I do after this error?
[14:04:00] <nooone> after the error appears:
[14:04:01] <nooone> +-------------------------------------------------------------------------
[14:04:01] <nooone> ¦Your current system configuration is not compatible with Ultima VII!
[14:04:01] <nooone> ¦
[14:04:01] <nooone> ¦This installation program can create a bootable floppy disk
[14:04:01] <nooone> ¦which should enable your computer to run Ultima VII.
[14:04:03] <nooone> ¦However, some systems require special device drivers in order to function
[14:04:05] <nooone> ¦properly. If this is the case, or you are unsure, you should NOT create
[14:04:07] <nooone> ¦a bootable disk at this time. Instead, refer to your system manuals for
[14:04:08] <Colourless> you don't need to do anything, the game will be installed
[14:04:09] <nooone> ¦information concerning your system's configuration.
[14:04:11] <nooone> ¦
[14:04:13] <nooone> ¦Make a bootable disk? (Y,N, ESC to abort):
[14:04:15] <nooone> so it won´t install :(
[14:04:17] <Colourless> press N
[14:04:27] <Colourless> IT WILL INSTALL. Trust me
[14:04:47] <nooone> now:
[14:04:48] <nooone> Your system has the following the configuration:
[14:04:48] <nooone> You have You need at least Status
[14:04:48] <nooone> ---------------------------------------------------------------------
[14:04:48] <nooone> DOS version: 5.00 3.30 OK
[14:04:48] <nooone> DOS memory: 627088 bytes 524000 bytes OK
[14:04:50] <nooone> Press any key to continue...
[14:04:52] <nooone> ---------------------------------------------------------------------
[14:04:54] <nooone> Is this correct? (Y,N, ESC to abort): Y
[14:04:56] <nooone> y, right?
[14:04:58] <Colourless> yes
[14:05:11] <nooone> then the DOS window dissapears...
[14:05:16] <nooone> is it installed now?!
[14:05:28] <Colourless> the original game is installed
[14:05:32] <nooone> aaah
[14:05:37] <nooone> how do I run it then? :(
[14:05:45] <Colourless> you then need to set exult up to know where the game is installed
[14:06:29] <Colourless> you can do that by just re-installing exult
[14:06:38] <nooone> yeah
[14:06:44] <nooone> but now comes the zaurus...
[14:06:48] <nooone> :)
[14:06:54] <nooone> in the docs is written: From the Ultima7 folder on your PC, copy the STATIC sub folder to an appropriate folder
[14:06:55] <Colourless> don't look at me there :-)
[14:06:58] <nooone> what is that?
[14:07:35] <nooone> do you know that?
[14:07:48] <Colourless> I can't tell you how to properly setup exult for the zaurus
[14:07:57] <nooone> hehe
[14:07:59] <nooone> okay
[14:08:09] --> phlask has joined #exult
[14:08:22] <Colourless> normally you should just copy the ultima7 dir to the exult, then put the zaurus exult binary in the u7 dir
[14:08:29] <Colourless> in theory, i think that should just work
[14:08:38] <nooone> maybe...
[14:08:44] <nooone> phlask: do you have a zaurus?
[14:09:09] <phlask> sorry I don't
[14:09:49] <-- phlask has left IRC ()
[14:10:50] --> phlask has joined #exult
[14:11:01] <nooone> hehe
[14:11:37] <nooone> wtf is a static subfolder...
[14:12:01] <Colourless> contains all of the static game data (i.e. things that don't change while you are playing the game)
[14:12:43] <nooone> aah
[14:12:47] <nooone> I understand!
[14:25:13] <-- phlask has left IRC ()
[14:28:14] <-- nooone has left IRC ("brb")
[15:08:33] <wjp> well, that was level 1
[15:09:38] <Colourless> :-)
[15:10:15] <wjp> and I killed a couple of myselves I had left in the pocket plane
[15:10:26] <wjp> experience is going up quite fast this way :-)
[15:10:56] <Colourless> it sure does :-)
[15:11:46] <wjp> inventory management is becoming quite annoying, though
[15:12:22] <wjp> too much good stuff lying around :-)
[15:12:35] <Colourless> :-)
[15:12:49] <Colourless> bags of holding and other things are rather useful
[15:13:01] <wjp> indeed :-)
[15:13:14] <wjp> although they add to the clutter too...
[15:13:27] <wjp> I found a couple of +1 items in one of them, even
[15:15:10] <wjp> ok, back to "work" ;-)
[15:15:38] <Colourless> :-)
[17:29:16] <wjp> lots of activity in here I see :-)
[17:30:14] <Colourless> no, not really
[17:30:16] <Colourless> :;-)
[17:30:35] <wjp> anyway, level 2 done, and my thief has spike traps now :-)
[17:31:47] <Colourless> remember, to get more than one trap, just choose the ability again next level up :-)
[17:31:58] <wjp> yeah, I know :-)
[17:32:11] <wjp> working on it :-)
[17:46:10] <wjp> time for level 3... bbl :-)
[18:57:55] <wjp> that machine on level 4 looks quite interesting :-)
[18:58:39] <Colourless> you don't say :-)
