[12:39:24] --> Colourless has joined #Exult
[15:13:24] --> fingolfin has joined #exult
[15:15:50] <fingolfin> hi
[15:15:58] <fingolfin> ryan: just saw your commit messages, good work!
[15:16:03] <fingolfin> at least from reading :)
[15:16:21] <Colourless> hi
[15:16:22] <fingolfin> but what is the "read" flag and what will I gain by enabling it in BG ?
[15:16:36] <fingolfin> (via cheat I mean)
[15:16:40] <Colourless> all it will allow you to do is read runic signs
[15:16:50] <fingolfin> ahhhh ok
[15:17:01] <fingolfin> good idea :)
[15:18:37] <Colourless> it's just incidental that it works for bg too
[15:18:52] <fingolfin> hehe
[15:20:50] <Colourless> originally it wasn't enabled for BG but I decided to see if it worked, and it did so I enabled it. I can imagine that it would be a somewhat useful cheat.
[15:23:39] <Colourless> i used to use it all the time in the original SI
[16:44:08] --- fingolfin is now known as Fingolfin|afk
[17:14:53] --- Fingolfin|afk is now known as Fingolfin
[18:03:07] --- Fingolfin is now known as Fingolfin|work
[18:53:45] --> wjp has joined #exult
[18:53:51] <wjp> hi
[18:54:14] <Fingolfin|work> hi
[18:54:16] <Colourless> hi
[18:54:31] <Fingolfin|work> hey, only 22 secs, and I was even faster than ryan
[18:54:37] <Fingolfin|work> useful, this highlighting
[18:54:40] * Fingolfin|work goes back to work
[18:55:05] <Colourless> according to me I was first :)
[18:55:26] <Colourless> so wjp, which of us was first?
[18:55:38] <wjp> Max :-)
[18:55:57] <wjp> Exultbot agrees
[18:56:04] <wjp> [18:53:45] --> wjp has joined #exult
[18:56:04] <wjp> [18:53:51] <wjp> hi
[18:56:04] <wjp> [18:54:14] <Fingolfin|work> hi
[18:56:04] <wjp> [18:54:16] <Colourless> hi
[18:56:25] <Fingolfin|work> yippie! :)
[18:56:25] <Colourless> 2 second.... it's all in the PING!
[18:56:39] <Fingolfin|work> <wjp> hi
[18:56:39] <Fingolfin|work> <Fingolfin|work> hi
[18:56:39] <Fingolfin|work> <Colourless> hi
[18:56:44] <Fingolfin|work> argh
[18:56:49] <Fingolfin|work> it ain't copy the times :)
[18:57:08] <Fingolfin|work> anyway, it seems that exultbot and me differ about 11 secs
[18:57:28] <Fingolfin|work> must ... go ... back .... work
[18:57:39] <Colourless> :)
[19:31:08] --> Dominus has joined #exult
[19:31:13] <wjp> hi
[19:31:17] <Dominus> hey ho
[19:31:43] <Colourless> hi
[19:32:14] <Dominus> Colourless: great job on the serpent text and plagues
[19:32:23] <Dominus> but what is the cheat for it?
[19:32:37] <Colourless> f2, n, 0, n, 4
[19:32:49] <Dominus> ah
[19:33:00] * Dominus should have looked that one up
[19:33:25] * Dominus would prefer F8 like in the original :-)
[19:33:55] <Colourless> f8 was just plaque test wasn't it?
[19:34:23] <Colourless> i can't remember though :)
[19:34:26] <Dominus> I think it was every text
[19:34:45] <Dominus> but setting a flag is also fine (as it is saved, right?9
[19:34:59] <Colourless> yeah it's saved
[19:35:16] <Colourless> it's like the original.
[19:35:31] <Dominus> ah, never did try that one in the original
[19:35:38] <Dominus> just the F8 thingy
[19:35:44] <Colourless> SI only, but we can do it in BG as well
[19:35:51] <Dominus> nethertheless I like it
[19:35:52] <Colourless> that is, SI only in the original
[19:35:58] <Dominus> and in BG I like it even more
[19:36:11] <Dominus> never liked to learn the runes or look them up everytime
[19:36:26] <Colourless> it's the flag that is used for the Magic Lens on monk isle and the Translate spell
[19:37:09] <Fingolfin|work> very useful
[19:37:15] <Dominus> how does it handle if you have it allready set and then cast translate and the spell effect turns off?
[19:38:04] <Colourless> they will deactivate it. not much i can do about that
[19:38:08] <Colourless> just don't use them :)
[19:38:19] <Dominus> hehe
[19:39:01] <Dominus> btw. what is it with the exult.cf option <facestats>?
[19:39:14] <Dominus> exult.cfg even
[19:39:24] <Colourless> ask fingolgin i think... i didn't put it in
[19:39:48] <Colourless> i know it's used to save the state of the facestats the last time you were in the game
[19:40:01] <Dominus> which is nice
[19:40:27] <Colourless> ideally I wanted it to be in the save games
[19:40:51] <Dominus> I think itīs much better in the cfg
[19:40:56] <Colourless> yeah
[19:41:38] <Dominus> did you see the one bug where you can 1. circumvent the weight limit with the face stats and 2. have dead party memebers carry their own body?
[19:41:44] <Dominus> 2. is really funny
[19:42:46] <Colourless> it shouldn't do that
[19:43:00] <Colourless> at least it's not supposed to obviously ]
[19:43:22] <Colourless> i might have accidently set the dont_check flag
[19:44:16] <Dominus> seems like it
[19:44:40] <Dominus> and that dead party members donīt leave is quite another bug actually
[19:45:02] <Dominus> but together with the face stats it has a funny effect
[19:45:32] <Colourless> yeah
[19:48:30] <Dominus> http://www.bigidea.com/penguins/kids/k_spacedpenguin.htm
[19:48:42] <Dominus> a funny game - requires flash
[19:48:55] <Fingolfin|work> 1) I am *not* called fingolgin 2) I am not at all involved with this, so I am innocent, but if I can provide help somehow, tell me :)
[19:48:57] <Dominus> don't look at it if you donīt have time
[19:49:11] <Dominus> hehe
[19:49:31] <Fingolfin|work> Dominus: I was refering to
[19:49:32] <Colourless> gee, it was a typo
[19:49:35] <Fingolfin|work> <Dominus> btw. what is it with the exult.cf option <facestats>?
[19:49:35] <Fingolfin|work> <Dominus> exult.cfg even
[19:49:35] <Fingolfin|work> <Colourless> ask fingolgin i think... i didn't put it in
[19:49:40] <Fingolfin|work> =)
[19:49:55] <Fingolfin|work> I haven't touched exult code for at least two weeks :/
[19:50:02] <Dominus> Fingolfin|work: I know - I was still refering to that link
[19:50:02] <Fingolfin|work> well that was a lie
[19:50:06] <Colourless> it's been there for ages :)
[19:50:13] <Fingolfin|work> I did twiddle a bit to get exult_studio running on OS X :)
[19:50:18] <Fingolfin|work> Dominus: ooookk
[19:51:20] --- Fingolfin|work is now known as Fingolfin
[19:51:26] <Dominus> Colourless: that face stat thing also doesnīt quite work. When I load another savegame they are sometimes off or on - quite annoying
[19:51:47] <Dominus> but since you didnīt out it into exult.cfg I'm not complaining to you
[19:51:55] <Dominus> out=put
[19:52:06] <Colourless> as I said, i didn't put the cfg stuff in
[19:54:04] <Dominus> :-)
