[02:51:42] --> Zxcvb has joined #exult
[02:53:21] <sbx> hi zbcxv
[02:53:24] <sbx> zxcvb
[02:53:34] <sbx> qwert
[02:53:38] <sbx> y
[02:53:54] <Zxcvb> hi
[02:54:10] <Zxcvb> do you know anything about the win32 platform?
[02:54:29] <sbx> nup
[02:54:34] <sbx> besides that I use it
[02:54:48] <sbx> Colourless is the win32 expert of the dev team you probably know
[02:55:09] <Zxcvb> ah, just wondering what GlobalMemoryStatusEx is for
[02:55:25] * sbx shrugs.
[02:55:28] <sbx> did you search MSDN?
[02:55:30] <Zxcvb> apparently doom3 uses it to detect 9x/me and refuse to run
[02:55:38] <sbx> oh
[02:56:45] <sbx> it probably wouldnt work on 9x/me
[02:56:51] <sbx> else they wouldnt check for it
[02:57:07] <Zxcvb> it does
[02:57:19] <sbx> how do you know?
[02:57:26] <Zxcvb> been tested on the forums
[02:57:37] <sbx> how did they get past it? :)
[02:57:43] <Zxcvb> they just hex edited the last two bytes to 00 (making it an invalid call)
[02:57:49] <sbx> oh
[02:57:59] <sbx> so you just wanted to know more about it, not how to bypass it
[02:58:03] <Zxcvb> yeah
[02:58:23] <Zxcvb> i.e. they hex edited it to GlobalMemoryStatus00
[02:58:51] <Zxcvb> wierd that it works (supposedly better than 2k/xp) yet there is such a check
[02:59:24] <sbx> i think the id software team would be willing to discuss it
[02:59:34] <sbx> say something about it
[03:02:26] <Zxcvb> ah, do you know if help stops working after the moongates are blown up?
[03:03:39] <sbx> Darke said it always works
[03:04:25] <Zxcvb> ah, so what all is supposed to stop working when that generator is destroyed
[03:04:33] <Zxcvb> just the moongates and orb of the moons?
[03:10:13] <sbx> don't remember
[03:13:30] <sbx> exult should do it correctly
[03:15:45] <Zxcvb> is there any support for ips patching by any chance?
[03:15:54] <Zxcvb> that would be the way to fix usecode bugs, imho
[03:16:30] <sbx> no
[03:16:38] <sbx> the current method is to just drop your new usecode in patch dir
[03:16:49] <sbx> and use a special call to access the original usecode
[03:17:51] <Zxcvb> I mean like fixing the u7 bug with create gold so it creates a gold bar instead
