[09:40:45] <triptroni> ?????????
[09:40:46] <triptroni> ???????????
[09:40:49] <triptroni> hello
[09:41:00] <triptroni> >:|
[09:43:32] <mrod> hello triptroni
[09:44:03] <triptroni> sorry it shuld have an x on tha end but mirc cut it off
[09:47:48] <triptroni> why hasn't the main page been updated in 2 weeks??
[09:47:49] <triptroni> why hasn't the main page been updated in 2 weeks??
[09:47:50] <triptroni> why hasn't the main page been updated in 2 weeks??
[09:48:33] <Kirben> Because wjp has most likely been busy or maybe forgot ?
[09:48:56] <Kirben> and it is only 1 week, not 2.
[09:49:20] <triptroni> oh ok
[09:49:23] <triptroni> thanx
[09:49:30] <Kirben> Try refreshing the page if you only see June 11th update as last one.
[09:50:03] <triptroni> oh now i see 19th
[09:53:48] <triptroni> so how is it all going?
[09:55:08] <Kirben> Exult seems to be progessing well as usual
[09:55:50] <triptroni> choice
[09:56:17] --> wjp has joined #exult
[09:56:22] <wjp> hi
[09:56:31] <triptroni> hi
[09:56:58] <mrod> hello wjp
[09:59:57] <mrod> about 20010626 snapshot: "SDL_mapping.cc:36: cannot convert `void (*) (Uint8 *, Uint8 *, unsigned int, int)' to `void (*) (Uint8 *, const Uint8 *, unsigned int, int)' in initialization", but i do have both libSDL1.2-1.2.0 and libSDL1.2-devel-1.2.0 on my system
[10:00:22] <mrod> while i've just recompiled the preceeding snapshot, and it went ok
[10:00:24] <wjp> you need SDL 1.2.1, currently
[10:00:55] <wjp> if you don't want to get SDL 1.2.1, you'll have to patch the code slightly:
[10:01:18] <wjp> remove the 'const' in both the declaration and definition of the function that's on SDL_mapping.cc, line 36
[10:02:06] <mrod> 1.2.1 ? oh i remember of you talking about this, but i thought 1.2 was ok. i guess i'll try upgrade it, since exult will probabily continue to require it in the future won't it ?
[10:02:20] <wjp> yeah, probably
[10:02:35] <mrod> ok i'll try to upgrade then
[10:02:47] <wjp> maybe I should add a simple precompiler directive that checks if you have SDL1.2.1 or not
[10:09:15] * mrod fights with conflicts and hopes to get out of this as a winner :-D
[10:13:01] <mrod> it seems to work now ^_^
[10:14:33] <-- triptroni has left IRC (Read error to triptroni[p671-apx1.akl.ihug.co.nz]: Connection reset by peer)
[10:15:36] <wjp> bbl, lunch
[10:15:47] --- wjp is now known as wjp|lunch
[10:48:14] --- wjp|lunch is now known as wjp
[10:48:24] <wjp> mrod: do you have 1.2.1 installed now?
[10:51:59] <mrod> wjp: yes, it's working all ok :-)
[10:52:16] <wjp> could you try if the latest cvs version still works?
[10:52:55] <mrod> wjp: which one do you mean ? i've just compiled the 20010626 snapshot, and it worked just fine
[10:53:10] <wjp> the one from 15 minutes ago :-)
[10:53:19] <Kirben> hmm I better update the snapshot
[10:53:19] <mrod> yoah, you mean by cvs ?
[10:53:36] <wjp> oh, I though you were using cvs... never mind then :-)
[10:53:44] <mrod> i meant "ah", i don't know where did that "yoah" get out from :-D (!!)
[10:54:19] <wjp> Kirben: what SDL version are you using with the snapshots, btw?
[10:54:25] <mrod> wjp: i can't use cvs, maybe you can point me to some webpage explaining how to do it ?
[10:54:57] <wjp> http://sourceforge.net/cvs/?group_id=2335
[10:55:03] <mrod> (or maybe i could try with the man page, but i see i have no cvs installed)
[10:55:25] <mrod> wjp: i did not think of it, you're right. i'm going to try
[10:55:34] <Kirben> 1.2.1
[10:56:19] <wjp> Kirben: and it compiled with 1.2.1 before yesterday?
[10:56:56] <Kirben> yes been using 1.2.1 for almost a week
[10:56:57] <Kirben> new snapshot is online
[10:57:13] <wjp> now that's weird
[10:57:37] --- wjp is now known as wjp|work
[10:59:50] <mrod> Kirben: so the new snapshot you just put online is the one wjp asked me to try ? then i'm going to download it (i will try to learn the basics of cvs nevertheless, it'll probably be useful anyway in the future)
[11:00:18] <Kirben> hmm should sdl includes say 1.2.1 ?
[11:00:21] <Kirben> yes
[11:03:10] <Kirben> cvs is really simple though, just paste instructions from exult site then just do a cvs update -d from exult directory to update after that.
[11:03:29] <mrod> Kirben: thank you, i'll try it
[11:07:26] <wjp|work> Kirben: yeah, SDL_version.h should say 1.2.1
[11:07:46] <Kirben> hmm still says 1.2
[11:08:04] <Kirben> but file dates are 18/6/2001
[11:08:09] <wjp|work> weird
[11:08:30] <wjp|work> SDL_PATCHLEVEL == 0?
[11:09:16] <Kirben> Must be 1.2.1:
[11:09:17] <Kirben> #define SDL_MAJOR_VERSION 1
[11:09:18] <Kirben> #define SDL_MINOR_VERSION 2
[11:09:18] <Kirben> #define SDL_PATCHLEVEL 1
[11:09:25] <wjp|work> yeah, that's 1.2.1 then
[11:09:50] <mrod> i'm trying it; too bad cvs does not give feedback about how much of the current file is already downloaded
[11:11:28] <wjp|work> Kirben: did you compile it with the changes I committed 45 minutes ago?
[11:12:16] <Kirben> I thought last changes were source code only, I didn't update windows binary
[11:12:47] <wjp|work> I'm not sure it still compiles in window...
[11:12:59] <Kirben> ok will try then
[11:13:25] <wjp|work> 'make SDL_mapping.o" should be enough, btw
[11:13:49] <Kirben> Administrator@CO3007967-A /home/kirben/exult
[11:13:50] <Kirben> $ make SDL_mapping.o

[11:15:12] <wjp|work> oh, wait, SDL_version.h isn't included in SDL_mapping.h
[11:15:54] <wjp|work> try again?
[11:16:39] <Kirben> works now
[11:16:45] <wjp|work> k, great. thanks
[11:39:07] * mrod makes his acquaintance with cvs
[11:39:27] * mrod seems to like it
[11:39:50] <mrod> nice this thing. now i can be up to date just in time ^_^
[11:40:56] <wjp|work> yeah, cvs seems to work very well
[11:48:23] --> InuYasha has joined #exult
[11:52:38] <mrod> hello
[11:53:47] <InuYasha> Hey, you said hello to me yesterday and then left.
[11:54:19] * mrod looks at the log
[11:55:09] <mrod> :-)
[11:55:21] <mrod> yes, you're right :-)
[11:55:29] <InuYasha> Funny, isn't it?
[11:55:42] <mrod> but i said also "i'll be back later, see you :-)" :-) !
[11:55:55] <InuYasha> I'm attempting to play U7 on a 27" s-video TV.
[11:56:02] <mrod> !
[11:56:02] <InuYasha> Not using exult.
[11:56:14] <InuYasha> The image is slightly off to the right.
[11:56:31] <InuYasha> Looks good though. :)
[11:57:03] <InuYasha> The only other way I could play U7 on a TV in the past was on the SNES, and that port stunk. :(
[11:57:17] <mrod> hmm, i wonder what the natural television-soften-effect looks on the original
[11:58:25] <mrod> well, i rather meant `TV', not television :-)
[11:58:25] <InuYasha> It looks like any other video game really, but the s-video separates the chroma and luma in the signal, so it looks really sharp.
[11:58:52] <InuYasha> Want a shot from my digital camera?
[11:59:05] <mrod> InuYasha: yes, why not :-)
[11:59:16] <InuYasha> Ok, it may take me a few minutes.
[11:59:21] <InuYasha> If you don't mind waiting.
[11:59:28] <mrod> it's ok
[12:00:02] <mrod> i'm going to buy a new graphics card one of these days, and i'll most probably buy one with TV-out
[12:00:39] <InuYasha> Heh, I have this setup on a separate PC. It's a P233 /w 64 MB of RAM and an STB Velocity 128 with TV-out.
[12:00:46] <InuYasha> I also have a DVD decoder on it.
[12:01:04] <mrod> i'm using a PCI graphics card with 2MB of RAM on it !! a turtle is quicker :-) !
[12:01:43] <InuYasha> I've had worse. :)
[12:02:10] <mrod> it's a SiS 6215C, which forces me to use a *really* old X server (else i get awful video noises)
[12:02:13] <InuYasha> Cirrus Logic ISA board with 256 Kb of video memory, yuck.
[12:02:24] <mrod> !
[12:07:20] <InuYasha> Ok, they're transferring over now.
[12:07:52] <InuYasha> I might try it on exult, because the original DOS version is displayed slightly askewed on the TV.
[12:08:05] <InuYasha> Does the Windows version of exult use DirectX or what?
[12:08:53] <mrod> i don't know, i don't use the win version much
[12:08:53] <Kirben> yes DirectX
[12:08:54] <wjp|work> it uses SDL, which may in turn use DirectX
[12:09:13] <InuYasha> Heh, cool.
[12:11:12] <InuYasha> Here's what you do with bad CD burns -- http://www.geocities.com/skipfreethrow/coaster.jpg
[12:12:34] <mrod> :-)
[12:12:54] <InuYasha> Wow, these pictures turned out really good.
[12:15:15] * mrod successfully compiled the fresh cvs version
[12:17:21] <InuYasha> Ok, it's http://www.geocities.com/skipfreethrow/ultima7-1.jpg through ultima7-6.jpg
[12:17:30] <InuYasha> The last two have screenies with text.
[12:17:40] <InuYasha> Looks a little blurred in the pictures, but it's better with real eyes. :)
[12:18:37] <InuYasha> It sure beats trying to read it at that resolution on a monitor. :)
[12:18:44] <InuYasha> Which is why exult is nice.
[12:19:30] * mrod looks at the photos
[12:22:40] <mrod> i've seen
[12:23:00] <mrod> and, i will surely try it as soon as i get my new card :-)
[12:23:12] <InuYasha> What sort of TV do you have?
[12:23:28] <InuYasha> It looks a lot better in real life than those pictures.
[12:23:33] <InuYasha> The colors are more vivid.
[12:23:37] <InuYasha> Looks cool. :)
[12:24:00] <mrod> :-)
[12:24:36] <mrod> the one which i normally use is a small, i believe it's 15", tv
[12:24:47] <InuYasha> Does it have composite inputs?
[12:24:56] <mrod> i'm going to have lunch now
[12:25:06] <InuYasha> Ok, I'm going to have breakfast.
[12:25:13] <mrod> :-D
[12:26:40] <mrod> i'm not sure about the composite input. it does however have the scart
[12:26:49] <mrod> anyways, i have to go now, see you

[12:58:55] <mrod> hello
[12:59:02] <Colourless> hi
[12:59:04] <InuYasha> Hi rod.
[12:59:10] <InuYasha> Or is that mrod? :P
[12:59:22] <mrod> :-)
[13:06:30] <-- Kirben has left IRC (Ping timeout for Kirben[co3007967-a.brasd1.vic.optushome.com.au])
[13:26:25] <mrod> hey, should this be of interest for anyone, i've found a nice small program which serves as a hierarchical notebook, but can be used to edit other xml files as well (or, at least, i've successfully used it to edit exult's config file). i like it very much (i'm not its sponsor and neither the author, btw :-). it's on hnb.sourceforge.net
[13:56:58] <InuYasha> Heh, cool. There was a Windows executable so I tried it. Quite different. :)
[14:00:33] <mrod> InuYasha: are you talking about hnb ?
[14:00:51] <InuYasha> Yes.
[14:01:24] <mrod> :-)
[14:02:22] <InuYasha> I like his "sample data", heh.
[14:02:53] <InuYasha> "cd's in my collection" "none, it was stolen, I survive on mp3's at the moment."
[14:03:19] <mrod> :-D
[14:03:34] <InuYasha> Weird, checkboxes.
[14:03:38] <InuYasha> Kinky.
[14:03:55] <mrod> i like it very much
[14:04:51] <InuYasha> It's probably more fun to use under UNIX than a plain MS-DOS box.
[14:05:10] <InuYasha> X has some very fun terminals to use.
[14:05:39] <mrod> InuYasha: sure it is. i use it in console, but a 128x48 one ^_^
[14:05:54] <InuYasha> :O
[14:06:26] <mrod> once you get used to the size of the characters, you won't go back, trust me :-)
[14:06:44] <InuYasha> Cool, HTML export. :)
[14:16:25] <mrod> but, did the Guardian always say "Thank you for the information in the notebook, Avatar ..." ?? i recall him not specifying "in the notebook"
[14:17:33] <Colourless> um, he always has as far as I know
[14:18:35] * mrod look puzzled
[14:18:58] <mrod> then it must have been my memory once again, i guess ... :-\
[14:19:29] <Colourless> it must be. :)
[14:20:55] <mrod> :-)
[14:33:48] <mrod> i have to disconnect. bye !

[16:12:21] <wjp|work> hi
[16:14:08] --> Nadir has joined #exult
[16:14:18] * Nadir is back
[16:14:23] <wjp|work> wb
[16:14:37] --- wjp|work is now known as wjp
[16:14:39] <Colourless> wb
[16:15:27] <Nadir> thx
[16:15:49] <wjp> Nadir: since you did the original .spec file, is it ok that I removed the explicit 'Requires: SDL >= 1.1.x' line?
[16:16:13] <wjp> (since rpm automatically added a dependency on libsdl-1.2.so.o)
[16:17:32] <Nadir> That's ok. Exult.spec was my first attempt at a spec file...
[16:17:51] <Nadir> It looks like a cosmetic fix really...
[16:18:15] <wjp> yeah, but it might make it friendlier for people who don't have SDL installed from an .rpm (not sure though)
[16:19:10] <Nadir> ah, right. The "requires" refers to the entire SDL package, whereas the automatic dependency only needs the .so
[16:19:59] <wjp> I did find out I shouldn't build an .rpm while I have a custom SDL installed :-)
[16:20:23] <wjp> the resulting .rpm depended on all kinds of weird audio libraries :-)
[16:20:45] <Nadir> I believe RedHat's SDL depends on KDE's ARTS
[16:20:53] <Nadir> Timidity too
[16:21:46] <wjp> I've got the SDL rpm from libsdl.org installed at home now
[16:21:49] <wjp> (1.2.1)
[16:21:59] <Nadir> ah, gotta get that
[16:22:25] <wjp> anyway, do you think we should release this week?
[16:22:58] <Nadir> yes YES !
[16:23:10] <wjp> like tonight? :-)
[16:24:19] <Nadir> Haven't tested it today, but if the bug that was triggered by Jameson is fixed then it's fine
[16:25:24] <Nadir> The PCB bug that was mentioned by Jeff can wait until later, seeing that it is not that critical
[16:29:25] <wjp> I have to go home
[16:29:33] <wjp> back in 15 minutes :-)

[17:47:40] * Colourless would like to tell the world, "I bought some new RAM today. I'm now upto 320 MB. The difference IS noticable." :-)
[17:48:00] * wjp wonders how much Colourless used to have
[17:48:18] * Colourless used to have 192
[17:49:06] * wjp agrees on the noticability
[17:49:37] * Colourless couldn't resist the price, $44 for 128 MB
[17:49:38] * wjp just spent 4 hours upgrading RAM at work
[17:50:05] * wjp wonders if Colourless means US $
[17:50:28] * Colourless meant AUD, which is about $0.54 US
[17:50:42] * wjp thinks Colourless got a pretty good price then
[17:52:56] * wjp ponders the "to release or not to release" question
[17:53:10] * Colourless says release!
[17:53:29] * wjp kind of agrees
[17:53:32] * Colourless but not today, I say lock the code for 24 or 48 hours
[17:53:48] * wjp thinks that last sentence was screwed up :-)
[17:53:59] * wjp is shocked at the use of the word 'I' by Colourless
[17:54:15] <wjp> ;-)
[17:54:18] * Colourless damn
[17:54:21] <Colourless> :)
[17:54:47] <wjp> I guess I'll write a mail to the ML

[18:05:04] <wjp> hmm, I thought the BG status icons (in the stats screen) were already implemented?
[18:05:17] <Colourless> status icons?
[18:05:30] <wjp> hungry, charmed, dead, paralyzed, poisoned, etc..
[18:05:36] <Colourless> they should be

[19:38:27] <wjp> yeah
[19:40:14] <InuYasha> Maybe it's the guardian.
[19:40:26] <wjp> but I killed the guardian!
[19:40:38] <InuYasha> I already ascended. :P
[19:41:23] * mrod wants to ascend too ! he will as soon as he gets his new graphics card
[19:42:21] <InuYasha> *no spoilers attached*
[19:42:32] <mrod> ?!
[19:42:45] * mrod looks puzzled
[19:43:16] <InuYasha> Ultima 9: Ascension, you can't get more then that other than the name. :)
[19:43:44] <mrod> :-)
[19:43:58] <InuYasha> Isn't a 3D accelerator required for Ultima 9?
[19:44:00] <InuYasha> Heh.
[19:44:11] --> triptroni has joined #exult
[19:44:16] <InuYasha> I don't think that SiS 2 MB card will do you justice.
[19:44:21] <triptroni> hello
[19:44:27] <wjp> hi
[19:45:01] <mrod> InuYasha: yes it is. the thing which makes me angry is that the game doesn't give me the choice to do it all in software (yes, i know, it'd be slow, but with a good cpu i can get some sort of almost-playable-idea-of-the-game at least !)
[19:45:23] <triptroni> did you get a cd wif it?
[19:45:27] <mrod> hello triptroni
[19:45:38] <InuYasha> mrod: if you have that good of a CPU to render Ultima 9 in software, then you would have a 3D accelerator. :)
[19:45:51] <triptroni> goto www.driverhq.com
[19:45:59] <InuYasha> They almost go hand in hand.
[19:46:22] <mrod> InuYasha: i do have a good cpu indeed, but i didn't take a decision about which card should i buy. i'm not easy when it comes to decide :-(
[19:46:44] <mrod> so i probably won't buy one until i'm convinced
[19:47:13] <triptroni> ultima 9 just isn't the same as the rest of the ultimas
[19:47:31] <InuYasha> But it's an Ultima nonetheless. :)
[19:47:48] <triptroni> :)
[19:47:58] <InuYasha> Ultima 3 and 7 are my favorites.
[19:48:08] <triptroni> yeah ultima 7, 4
[19:48:12] <triptroni> are mine
[19:48:25] <mrod> apart from 7, i've played only u6
[19:48:32] <triptroni> really?
[19:48:38] <InuYasha> mrod: buy the Ultima Collection!
[19:48:42] <InuYasha> It's in any old bargain bin.
[19:48:58] <triptroni> yeah i got ultima9 dragon edition
[19:49:11] <InuYasha> Yeah, it comes with it.
[19:49:19] <InuYasha> But you can buy the Ultima Collection separately.
[19:49:19] * mrod will play u9 !
[19:49:25] <InuYasha> I know they have it boxed on CD-ROM.
[19:49:34] <mrod> i wonder, is the dragon edition still on sales ?
[19:49:48] <triptroni> yeah
[19:49:52] <triptroni> well in nz it is
[19:49:55] <InuYasha> The Ultima Collection is a must have. :)
[19:50:02] <InuYasha> Regardless.
[19:50:18] <triptroni> yeah
[19:50:47] <triptroni> wow i have a certificate from lord british
[19:51:08] <triptroni> and an ankh
[19:51:11] <triptroni> hehehehe
[19:51:21] <triptroni> i didn't get the maps though!
[19:52:23] <triptroni> so.....how are you all?
[19:52:55] <InuYasha> It would've been cool if they included the Ultimas not exclusively for the x86, like for the Amiga, and Atari, etc. etc.
[19:53:43] <triptroni> i have the original version of ultima 4 on a disk..and it came like that too
[19:53:56] <triptroni> yeah
[19:54:33] <mrod> i remember when watching at the u9 trailers months and months ago !
[19:54:53] <InuYasha> mrod: yeah, those trailers on are the Ultima Collection CD I have.
[19:55:00] <InuYasha> Bleh.
[19:55:05] <InuYasha> are on the...
[19:55:06] <InuYasha> Heh.
[19:55:19] <triptroni> you kno in tha ultima collection, even though it came out when win95 was out, ultima 7 has no way of working in windows!!!
[19:55:29] <mrod> it took me some time to download all those trailers, but it was worth it.
[19:55:37] <mrod> well, i think, at least.
[19:55:37] <triptroni> except of things u can d/l from tha net
[19:55:44] <triptroni> but none on the cd
[19:55:46] <InuYasha> triptroni: had no way of working in Windows...
[19:56:14] <triptroni> i meant on the cd
[19:56:16] <triptroni> sorry
[19:56:35] <InuYasha> Yeah...
[19:56:41] <InuYasha> U7Win9x works great as well.
[19:57:02] <triptroni> yeah but no sound for me
[19:57:08] <InuYasha> Why not?
[19:57:48] <triptroni> i have a VIA AC 97
[19:57:56] <triptroni> its on tha mother board
[19:58:07] <triptroni> windows works fine with it
[19:58:21] <triptroni> so does exult
[19:58:27] <InuYasha> No DOS support?
[19:58:33] <InuYasha> Yeah, that is the only downside.
[19:58:37] <triptroni> :(
[19:58:52] <InuYasha> My SB Live! has SB16 emulation for DOS, under both Windows/DOS and real mode DOS.
[19:59:06] <mrod> there's dos support, but the whole thing is a nuisance nevertheless
[19:59:09] <triptroni> damn if only i had $500
[19:59:17] <mrod> i have a A7V133 with AC97 audio
[19:59:33] <triptroni> oh ok
[19:59:48] <mrod> Via forgot to put VIAFMTSR.COM on the distributed drivers CD
[20:00:03] <triptroni> does it work with u7win9x??
[20:00:52] <mrod> (at least, they forgot to put it on CDs distributed here, don't know for others)
[20:00:54] <triptroni> where can i find that
[20:00:58] <triptroni> ???
[20:01:13] <triptroni> mine didn't even come with a cd
[20:01:15] <mrod> triptroni: that i did not try yet, because i got the new setup only recently
[20:01:24] <triptroni> oh ok
[20:01:43] <triptroni> where can i find VIAFMTSR.COM??
[20:02:06] <mrod> triptroni: let's continue in query
[20:02:17] <triptroni> oh ok
[20:03:30] <triptroni> have any of u guys got ultima 9?
[20:04:22] <triptroni> and if so which shrine are you up 2?
[20:06:45] <triptroni> hello????
[20:07:18] * wjp finished u9
[20:07:31] <triptroni> :)
[20:07:34] <wjp> (I'm currently replaying it, up to Valoria)
[20:08:26] <triptroni> my hdd got scrambled in a surge and i've just restarted
[20:13:00] <triptroni> goodbye i have2 goto school, seeya!
[20:13:04] <-- triptroni has left IRC ()
[20:14:08] * mrod hears something to the east !
[20:14:18] <mrod> :-)
[20:15:29] <mrod> ultima 6 was nice. it'd be great to see some kind of exult for it
[20:16:00] <mrod> there's that project, using the dungeon siege engine ...
[20:23:21] <mrod> i think that some keybinding in exult to pop up party members backpacks sequentially would be useful. just like 'i', but for backpacks
[20:25:39] <mrod> what do you think of it ?
[20:29:15] <wjp> hmm, it's possible I guess... might be useful too
[20:29:29] <wjp> It'll have to wait until next week, though :-)
[20:30:04] <mrod> yes i've read of the almost complete feature freeze
[20:31:14] <mrod> i often find myself pushing 'i' and double-clicking dozens of times on backpacks, searching for something lost in who knows which bag :-)
[20:34:08] <-- InuYasha has left IRC ()
[21:27:17] <mrod> i'm going now. bye !
[21:27:23] <-- mrod has left #exult
