[04:49:20] <servus> How can you have a name like patientfox and then leave before anyone answers your question?
[04:50:59] <Baastuul> He lost his patience!
[04:57:48] <Jules> why is my name Jules?
[04:57:52] <Jules> :|
[04:57:54] --- Jules is now known as Kazin
[05:07:26] <-- pwr has left IRC ("Client exiting")
[05:13:14] <servus> He should have just been known as Fox.

[08:16:39] <Quester> wjp
[08:29:24] <wjp> yes?
[08:30:21] <wjp> I've been trying to figure out the reason behind that name check
[08:30:48] <Quester> hi
[08:31:59] <wjp> it appears there might be versions of U7 around where the names aren't null-terminated, which could be a problem
[08:34:01] --> Owings has joined #exult
[08:34:06] <Owings> Greetings
[08:34:10] <Quester> hi
[08:34:27] <Owings> Who's our victim today?
[08:34:28] <Quester> we use last version, 3.4
[08:34:47] <Quester> all names null-terminated
[08:42:49] <Owings> oh, oh, a question! Will it be possible to change the name length once it is fixed?
[08:43:31] <Owings> once the names are fixed, that is
[08:43:41] <Owings> I'd love to call Spark "The Red Menace"... Or "The Soviet War-Machine"

[23:23:38] <Colourless> willem i have an idea about that name stuff... just need to check the cvs history
[23:23:56] <Colourless> it's possible it was to fix problems introduced by exult
[23:28:39] <servus_> Roll back the fix and see what breaks!
[23:29:13] <servus_> There's porn on the phorum
[23:29:31] <Colourless> lesbian porn?
[23:29:40] <servus_> It's not specific.
[23:29:57] <Colourless> oh
[23:29:59] <servus_> Actually no, I don't think it is
[23:30:16] <servus_> I'd rather not find out
[23:30:25] <Colourless> title suggests not
[23:30:33] <Colourless> gone
[23:31:07] <servus_> Did you delete it or deactivate it? wjp wanted to look at it
[23:32:00] <servus_> Idle rambling music: I wonder if some sort of "random RPG generator" could work within Exult, where it would have mappings of chunks that could fit together nicely, then make random islands, and put random people on them in randomly shaped cities, and say "OK, I did my part, now add conversations!"
[23:32:13] <servus_> It might actually be enough to get someone to *finish* a darn total mod!
[23:32:51] <servus_> I already have a U6->U7 chunks map. A proof-of-concept for an island creator would be dastardly easy to create. Hm. Interesting :)
[23:34:23] <servus_> Not saying that I'm going to do one!
[23:40:48] <Colourless> i deleted it
[23:41:29] <Colourless> hmm... looking at actorio.cc i don't see that there was any specific bug in our code that I was trying to work around with the 'invalid character fix'
[23:42:24] <Colourless> i'm going to suggest, remove the fix and if anyone reports a bug, then we try to fix it again
[23:44:04] <Colourless> hmm..
[23:44:11] * Colourless thinks about something
[23:44:21] * Elizabeth slaps fn'Colourless around a bit with a large trout
[23:44:39] <servus_> I think Questor implied that it was a problem with a specific distribution of Ultima VII. Maybe European?
[23:45:02] * servus_ thinks about something
[23:45:09] <servus_> What an annoying BOT!
[23:45:12] <Colourless> 1.38 has this commit message: This will stop the invalid characters being written to stdout
[23:45:14] <Elizabeth> lol are you talking about the russian dudes?
[23:45:34] <Colourless> which removed the output of a characters name
[23:45:40] <Elizabeth> wow that was like forever ago too
[23:46:08] <Colourless> it's possible that the only names that have the problem are for 'invalid character' or ones that are unused...
[23:46:29] <Colourless> but i could be totally wrong
[23:46:45] <Colourless> regardless, remove the fix, if anything breaks, try to find a different workaround
