[18:51:17] <eviltar> Dominus are you available?
[18:53:10] <eviltar> would it be plausable to turn infravision on if the menu is opened at 'night-time', as a solution for hard to see menu's?
[19:41:37] <eviltar> or maybe even put a black rectangle over the screen before the menu is drawn if that's too much of a 'cheat'

[21:32:56] --> butterflyTK has joined #exult
[21:33:30] <butterflyTK> hello
[21:34:20] <butterflyTK> I plan to code a tool, that assists in translating uw1 uw2 and ss.
[21:35:17] <butterflyTK> wjp, do you know someone who has coded the stringsloader.cpp of uwadv or abysmal?
[21:36:38] <butterflyTK> I would use or rewrite that file for my project.
[21:38:39] <wjp> go for it, it's licensed under the GPL
[21:40:27] <butterflyTK> oh, that's true :)
[21:41:23] <butterflyTK> does that mean, that I also could rewrite it with the original header?
[21:41:39] <butterflyTK> or without it?
[21:42:08] <wjp> what do you mean?
[21:43:19] <butterflyTK> by rewrite I mean, that I would use different names for the elements, that tell more of their use.
[21:43:49] <butterflyTK> useage...
[21:43:54] <wjp> yes, you can modify it too, as long as your own project is open source too
[21:45:09] <butterflyTK> okay, by header I meant the comments at the beginning of the file?
[21:45:25] --> Colourless has joined #exult
[21:45:25] --- ChanServ gives channel operator status to Colourless
[21:46:27] <wjp> now you're slowly getting into lawyer territory :-)
[21:46:52] <wjp> basically I'd say keep our header while the file is still "mostly" the same, or strongly based on the uwadv code
[21:47:23] <wjp> but the most important GPL requirement is that everything you build on top of it is also open source
[21:48:15] <butterflyTK> okay, then I will keep it and add 2-3 lines additionally ;)
[21:50:13] <butterflyTK> thank you :)
[21:51:17] <wjp> good luck with your project :-)
[21:52:30] <butterflyTK> thanks, you also with yours! ;)
[21:59:01] <-- Rottingbeef has left IRC ()
[22:04:04] <butterflyTK> but is it not true, that I have to mail the thing of usage to the author? what can I do if he is not reachable anymore?
[22:06:15] <Colourless> http://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl-faq.html
[22:07:06] <butterflyTK> thanks :)

[23:11:46] <eviltar> whoever it was that suggested I merge against the trunk, since i started from the no_mixer branch, thank you
[23:12:36] <eviltar> I just finished merging and all the issues i was having seem to have dissapeared, like the weird inventory
[23:32:38] <-- Cahaan has left IRC ()
[23:47:59] <Dominus> eviltar: you're welcome :)
[23:48:35] <Dominus> I'm glad that is working out better, I hoped it would and it makes it much easier for you to keep up to date with exult
[23:49:24] <Dominus> as for your infravision idea, it is a good idea as long as you are ok with spoiling the game a bit (I'm okay with that :))
[23:49:36] <Dominus> but anyway I'm off again :)
