[12:03:32] <Nadir> Hi
[12:03:54] <mrod> hello Nadir
[12:04:14] <Nadir> ciao mrod
[12:04:48] <Nadir> What's up ?
[12:12:52] <-- mrod has left IRC (Ping timeout for mrod[ppp-207-68.14-151.iol.it])
[12:14:53] --> mrod has joined #exult
[12:20:27] <mrod> Nadir: "<Nadir> What's up ?" you mean `how are you' ?
[12:21:00] <Nadir> Yep
[12:21:36] <Nadir> What's up = What is going on/What are you doing/How are you/etc.
[12:22:15] <mrod> here is quite ok. i'm very pleased with the development of exult
[12:22:31] <mrod> i hope to see it complete as soon as possibile :-)
[12:22:58] <mrod> and you ?
[12:29:34] <Nadir> If you want to see it complete start contributing some code :)
[12:29:46] <Nadir> I'm joking. Bug reports are just as valuable
[12:31:33] <mrod> Nadir: your idea about code is not that bad. i think i would have already started doing it if i had the skills :-) who knows, maybe in the future
[12:32:19] <Nadir> Are you a student
[12:32:26] <mrod> yes
[12:33:04] <mrod> every now and then i take a peek at exult sources but i must say that i don't understand much ^_^
[12:37:23] <Nadir> Well, I don't get most of what is going on inside the usecode stuff
[12:52:21] <mrod> Nadir: are you an emacs guy or a vi guy ? no, really :-), what do you use to edit code ?
[12:53:36] <Nadir> XEmacs to edit. DDD to debug. MemProf to discover leaks.

[14:54:25] <-- Nadir has left IRC (Read error to Nadir[194.244.110.206]: Connection reset by peer)

[15:16:57] <Colourless> wb
[15:21:45] <Nadir> Can Exult on win32 use Timidity ?
[15:22:10] <Colourless> nope
[15:22:43] <Colourless> it can be done though. I did it once
[15:25:50] <-- Colourless has left IRC (Read error to Colourless[ppp300.adelaide.on.net.au]: Connection reset by peer)
[15:25:56] <Nadir> The MIDI renderer I have under W2000 is crap compared to the fullness of Timidity under Linux
[15:28:03] <Nadir> It's the Microsoft/Roland Sound Canvas renderer. Can I change it with something else ?
[15:30:27] --> Colourless has joined #Exult
[15:31:35] <Nadir> I didn't notice you'd dropped off.
[15:31:51] <Colourless> :) i did though
[15:32:23] <Nadir> I asked you something while you were gone...
[15:32:30] <Colourless> you did?
[15:32:36] <Colourless> I wouldn't know :)
[15:32:54] <matt0> hehehe
[15:33:10] <Nadir> Can I change Microsoft/Roland Wavetable SW Synth with something else ?
[15:34:16] <Colourless> as in you want to use a different software synth? or a different sound set?
[15:36:04] <Nadir> The latter would be nice. But either would be enough
[15:38:09] <Colourless> well, both are possible. Using a different software synth would require finding a synth that has a windows midi driver in it. There are a few around, I couldn't give you any pointers on where to find one.
[15:39:02] <Colourless> For changing the sound set, it is stored in a standard DLS file. windows\system32\drivers\gm.dls
[15:39:22] <Colourless> it should be possible to exchange that with a different dls file that contains different samples
[15:39:37] <Nadir> ah thanks
[15:43:08] <Nadir> what do you use ?
[15:43:38] <Colourless> a custom 44 mb soundfont with my SB Live
[15:47:05] <Nadir> it is possible to convert the sf to dls, isn't it ?
[15:48:49] <Nadir> Timidity will load soundfonts too
[15:48:58] <Colourless> it should theoretically be possible
[15:49:39] <Nadir> I've found this: http://www.geocities.com/SiliconValley/Peaks/1370/dls.htm
[16:01:26] <Nadir> I've downloaded the converted Chaos dls but it's silent...
[16:05:37] <Nadir> The "Age of the Dragons" MIDIs are quite good. I'm listening to them now...
[16:08:29] <Nadir> http://www.ualberta.ca/~mkwong/aotdmus/
[16:08:48] <Colourless> going there now
[16:09:13] <Nadir> Medieval town is what we're using for the intro in Exult
[16:09:33] <matt0> Nadir: is that so?
[16:09:39] --> mrod has joined #exult
[16:10:53] <Nadir> yep. Matt Kimmich (the author) gave me permission to use it, and he is in fact in Exult's credits. Age of the Dragons is otherwise an abandoned project
[16:12:08] <matt0> Nadir: neat
[16:12:51] <Nadir> IMHO the best MIDIs on that page are by Matt.
[16:16:09] <matt0> Nadir: By the way, I don't believe I know you. Are you part of the exult team?
[16:16:18] <Nadir> Nadir=Tristan
[16:16:21] <matt0> oh ok..
[16:18:05] <Nadir> One of the best things about U7 was the musical score.
[16:19:21] <matt0> like Dead Bodies
[16:21:38] <Nadir> Dead Bodies. Chamber music. Fortune Teller. Torture. And of course Stones.
[16:22:12] <Colourless> those are all pretty good
[16:22:29] <Nadir> SI had some neat additions. Dupre's Death is great
[16:22:30] <Nadir> Si had some excellent additions. Dupre's Death
[16:22:48] <Nadir> Conversation with Gwenno is good too
[16:22:55] <Nadir> oops
[16:23:06] <Nadir> I typed a similar sentence twice...
[16:23:06] <matt0> hehe
[16:23:10] <matt0> yes
[16:23:29] * Nadir needs to get a replacement brain
[16:23:32] <matt0> I like the harpsichord (sp?) song also
[16:23:36] <Colourless> no, it was so good, you had to express it in two different ways!
[16:23:55] <Nadir> it was, wasn't it ?
[16:23:59] <matt0> lol
[16:24:12] <Colourless> i annoyed the hell out of a friend once by playing it continuously for about 5 minutes
[16:24:35] <Colourless> the next day he told be that it was stuck in his head when he was attempting to go to sleep that night
[16:24:46] <Nadir> I know the feeling
[16:25:00] <matt0> hehe
[16:27:10] <Nadir> matt0: you use "hehe" quite a lot :)
[16:27:23] <matt0> Nadir: indeed
[16:39:47] <Nadir> I'm off. Bye to all

[17:46:16] --> wjp has joined #exult
[17:46:22] <wjp> hi
[17:46:27] <Colourless> hi
[17:48:28] <wjp> some people on the SDL ML are beginning to annoy me...
[17:48:34] <Colourless> why>
[17:48:36] <Colourless> ?
[17:48:43] <wjp> one has the date set to 27 July, the other to 27 June 2024!
[17:48:47] <wjp> kind of annoying :-)
[17:49:06] <wjp> (especially since I sort mailboxes by date)
[17:49:08] <Colourless> hmm
[17:49:34] <mrod> :-D
[17:51:35] * mrod has to go
[17:51:39] <mrod> bye !
[17:51:41] <wjp> bye
[17:51:52] <-- mrod has left #exult
[17:51:56] <Colourless> bye
[18:07:09] <wjp> hmm... bedroll seems to disappear in the paperdolls
[18:07:32] <Colourless> how so?
[18:07:42] <wjp> and I get "Shape::store_frame: framenum >= num_frames" messages when I have a bedroll in the belt slot
[18:08:23] <wjp> (BG, btw)
[18:08:31] <Colourless> i'll have a look at it
[18:10:42] <wjp> oh, fixed it
[18:10:45] <wjp> gender was set to true
[18:11:12] <Colourless> ouch
[18:11:30] <wjp> that probably means it adds one to the fr.num if male, right?
[18:11:38] <Colourless> yeah
[18:12:36] <wjp> ok, that fixed it
[18:12:41] <wjp> (both BG and SI)
[18:13:46] <Colourless> ok good
[18:15:40] --> mrod has joined #exult
[18:18:15] * wjp notices another "crash on sleep" bug in the bugtracker
[18:18:37] * wjp wonders whether he should mark it "outdated" or "duplicate"
