[22:41:14] <wjp> hi
[22:46:06] <slacked> hi there
[22:47:47] --> prehnite has joined #exult
[22:48:17] <prehnite> Merry Christmas! :D
[22:48:36] <prehnite> (and thanks for a really friggin good game engine =P)
[22:49:04] <slacked> hehe
[22:49:12] <slacked> im over christmas atm
[22:49:20] <slacked> that was yesterdays news
[22:49:22] <slacked> lol
[22:49:23] <prehnite> but, if any of you are alive, question about a possible bug in u7bg
[22:49:30] <slacked> yeh?
[22:49:34] <slacked> im no programmer
[22:49:39] <slacked> but always interested
[22:49:40] <wjp> hi
[22:49:41] <prehnite> yea, diddo. We have xmas on the eve, so everyone can sleep in
[22:49:58] <prehnite> oooh, wjp. ok, here goes
[22:50:11] <prehnite> grab the contract from emps, take it too the woodcutter
[22:50:35] <prehnite> get it signed, and then run it over to the elder, elder says "OK", run it over to the wife
[22:50:49] <prehnite> wife says, "I lied, I don't want you to take trellik"
[22:51:22] <prehnite> but when you talk to trellik, he is supposed to offer a suggestion about using the whistle and talking to the whisps
[22:51:37] <prehnite> but he acts as if he knows nothing.
[22:51:51] <slacked> hehe
[22:51:52] <prehnite> am I doing something wrong?
[22:51:59] <slacked> I killed a wisp in UO last night
[22:52:22] <prehnite> oh, using the cvs tree, 1.1
[22:53:00] <slacked> umm
[22:53:04] <slacked> don't know :/
[22:53:48] <prehnite> I have a save right after getting it signed, and have done this about 4 times, all without success
[22:56:25] <prehnite> and I swear this happened in version 1.0 when I played it too...
[22:56:56] <prehnite> (Which leads me to think it's something I'm doing wrong rather than a bug...)
[22:58:04] <slacked> well
[22:58:09] <slacked> how do you play exult?
[22:58:18] <slacked> I find it almost painful to play it
[22:58:33] <slacked> with lolo walking in my way all the time
[22:58:44] <slacked> not to mention other party members
[22:58:56] <slacked> everything else is fine
[22:59:08] <slacked> but im very picky when it comes to party management
[22:59:52] <slacked> I better go now
[22:59:58] <slacked> wjp will read this and freak
[23:00:01] <prehnite> yea, I think your in the wrong channel
[23:00:04] <wjp> yes, he will :-)
[23:00:05] <prehnite> =P
[23:00:06] <slacked> hehehe
[23:00:07] <wjp> back :-)
[23:00:09] <slacked> :P
[23:00:26] <slacked> cya
[23:00:27] <wjp> I think party behaviour is slightly different in 1.1
[23:00:27] <-- slacked has left IRC ("Client Exiting")
[23:00:42] * prehnite shrugs....
[23:00:48] <wjp> hm, last time I tried the emps section it worked
[23:00:54] * wjp wonders if he has a savegame there
[23:01:08] <prehnite> mind if I send you my savegame?
[23:01:20] <wjp> not at all :-)
[23:02:51] <prehnite> http://prehnite.com/exult09bg.sav
[23:03:02] <prehnite> (Since dcc is a little flaky right now)
[23:03:13] <prehnite> right after the signing of the contract.
[23:04:18] * wjp hunts down some Emps
[23:05:13] <prehnite> sweet, thanks!
[23:05:37] * wjp hmms
[23:06:10] <wjp> when Saralek ask "why did you need to speak to Trellek?" you don't get the right conversation option it seems
[23:06:25] <prehnite> "adventure" and "nothing"
[23:06:31] <wjp> yes
[23:06:38] <wjp> you should have one about Wisps, IIRC
[23:07:17] <prehnite> I haven't been to the upper parts of yew yet, and the game hasn't told me anything about the whisps yet.
[23:07:26] <prehnite> perhaps I haven't followed a certain order?
[23:07:39] <wjp> hm, that's probably it, then
[23:07:52] <wjp> flag 0138 needs to be set for the 'wisps' option to show up
[23:08:08] <wjp> and that's set when... *checks*
[23:08:37] <wjp> when you ask Taylor about wisps
[23:08:58] <wjp> you should probably talk to Taylor before talking to Saralek
[23:09:06] <prehnite> more importantly, since this happens, and forever screws up my chances of meeting the timelord. Shouldn't there be a flag check to allow me to go through with the emps?
[23:09:22] <wjp> it's a bit of a bug, yes
[23:09:31] <wjp> but nothing we can do anything about :/
[23:09:39] <prehnite> doh..
[23:09:44] <wjp> usecode bug in the original
[23:09:55] <wjp> (or so it sounds, anyway)
[23:10:22] <prehnite> well, at least someone knows about it, and it looks like I can proceed. So my job is done ^^
[23:11:11] <wjp> somebody should maybe start collecting info about usecode bugs and start fixing them :-)
[23:11:16] <prehnite> thanks for your time ^_^;
[23:11:26] <wjp> np :-)
[23:11:45] <prehnite> yea, but this game is so huge, that it's going to take forever to perfect
[23:11:52] <wjp> indeed :-)
[23:12:39] <prehnite> anywhoo, I'm off to get fater in BG on my day off. Keep up the good work
