[14:48:39] --> toadsMoke has joined #exult
[14:49:44] <toadsMoke> Hey
[14:50:23] <toadsMoke> well, i was playing BG and I found a few bugs. I don't know if you know about them yet, but I'll tell you anyway
[14:50:36] <Colourless> ok
[14:50:40] <toadsMoke> hehe
[14:50:51] <Colourless> chances are I may already know them
[14:51:01] <toadsMoke> when you wakeup NPCs, threy don't go back to bed, but fall asleep on their feet
[14:51:56] <toadsMoke> because the Z-z-z-z thing you guys added is a above their head when they come back into the screen, yet they're still on their feet
[14:52:20] <toadsMoke> that is you gotta walk away first and come back. =P
[14:52:28] <toadsMoke> did you know that one?
[14:52:39] <Colourless> no I didn't
[14:52:44] <toadsMoke> =]
[14:53:10] <toadsMoke> i'm using the Alpha 5, not the new snapshot
[14:53:39] <toadsMoke> and this one you probably know...
[14:54:05] <Colourless> we prefer it that you use the snapshots if you are going to report bugs
[14:54:42] <toadsMoke> well, i'll check it out
[14:54:49] <toadsMoke> then get back to you
[14:55:29] <Colourless> ok, thanks
[14:58:02] <toadsMoke> wow
[14:58:23] <toadsMoke> the avatar's movements are MUCH smoother
[14:59:25] <toadsMoke> but yes, they still fall asleep while on their feet
[14:59:28] <toadsMoke> =]
[15:00:09] <Colourless> heh
[15:14:16] <-- Colourless has left IRC (Ping timeout for Colourless[ppp421.adelaide.on.net.au])
[15:15:39] --> Colourless has joined #Exult
[16:00:43] --> fingolfin has joined #exult
[16:00:58] <Colourless> hi
[16:00:59] <Colourless> any idea what is going on with the forum
[16:06:33] <fingolfin> hi
[16:06:39] <fingolfin> no, didn't look at it for some time
[16:06:41] * fingolfin surfs
[16:07:14] <Colourless> it doesn't work. :-)
[16:07:30] <Colourless> the admin page says it can't connect to database
[16:11:54] <fingolfin> not again!
[16:11:55] <fingolfin> sigh
[16:13:04] <fingolfin> well, in this case, we should a) file a support request @ SF and b) ask for help in #sourceforge
[16:13:12] <fingolfin> but it seems that moorman is absent right now (coffee break? :)
[16:20:36] <-- toadsMoke has left #exult
[17:13:33] <-- fingolfin has left IRC (bbl)
[18:06:56] --> fingolfin has joined #exult
[19:01:56] --- fingolfin is now known as Fingolfin|dinner
[19:08:31] --- Fingolfin|dinner is now known as Fingolfin
[19:09:17] <Fingolfin> no my dinner wasn't that short, I just forgot to change my nick
[19:14:22] <Colourless> heh
[19:14:48] <Colourless> 7 minutes might be long enough
[19:24:53] --> zen0 has joined #exult
[19:25:45] <zen0> I was reading the logs, and I can also confirm that sleeping standing up thing that Toadsmoke mentioned.
[19:25:53] <zen0> with the snapshot as of yesterday
[19:29:53] <Fingolfin> hm
[19:30:16] <Fingolfin> can you please verify that this is not yet in the bugtracker, and then add a new item to the bug tracker, exactly describing the problem
[19:30:22] <Fingolfin> and possibly stating how to reproduce it
[19:30:29] <Fingolfin> http://sourceforge.net/tracker/?group_id=2335&atid=102335
[19:30:30] <zen0> sure thing, I was just looking into that
[19:30:33] <Fingolfin> that would be very helpful
[19:30:39] <Fingolfin> thx
[19:33:22] <-- zen0 has left IRC ()
[19:46:47] <Colourless> the forum is working again
[19:58:34] <Fingolfin> good

[21:13:12] --> jameson has joined #exult
[21:13:16] <jameson> Hi!
[21:13:31] <jameson> Hey, it's empty in here...
[21:13:48] * jameson sighs
[21:13:48] <Fingolfin> hehe
[21:13:51] <Fingolfin> bad time of day
[21:13:56] <Fingolfin> wjp is working
[21:14:03] <Fingolfin> colourless left early :)
[21:14:13] <jameson> Technically, I'm working, too ;->
[21:14:56] <Fingolfin> as am I
[21:14:57] <Fingolfin> ...
[21:15:01] <jameson> http://www.projekt-laeufer.de
[21:15:15] <Fingolfin> I am supposed to finish this project this week so I can learn for my vordiplom :)
[21:15:19] * Fingolfin surfs
[21:15:21] <jameson> Doing bus stuff as a project.
[21:15:34] <Fingolfin> aye
[21:15:39] <jameson> Should've been finished weeks ago...
[21:15:40] <Fingolfin> nice
[21:15:47] * jameson sighs
[21:16:10] <jameson> BTW, there's a project that aims at re-implementing UW* and SShock, or, at least, their engines...
[21:16:17] <Fingolfin> I (still) work for Best (www.bestcolor.com)
[21:17:23] <jameson> http://madeira.physiol.ucl.ac.uk/people/jim/games/sshock.html
[21:18:01] * jameson starts a graphical web browser to check whether the URL he pasted was correct...
[21:18:20] <Fingolfin> it points to TSSHP =)
[21:19:09] <jameson> Er, yes. Looks about right. Did you know about that?
[21:19:55] <jameson> There are only a few UW screenshots, but they seem to be working on those, too...
[21:19:56] <Fingolfin> I actually was on that page once before I think...
[21:20:02] <jameson> Looks like stuff is being rendered manually.
[21:20:49] <jameson> Well, it's still being maintained actively, apparently.
[21:21:50] <Fingolfin> there is a message on the frontpage, yeah!
[21:22:05] --> wjp has joined #exult
[21:22:08] <wjp> hi
[21:22:14] <jameson> Hi wjp!
[21:22:15] <wjp> <Fingolfin> wjp is working
[21:22:21] <Fingolfin> wjp: hiya
[21:22:27] <wjp> where did you get that idea? I was playing Avernum, actually ;-)
[21:22:28] <Fingolfin> wjp: sht, I was trying to give you cover!
[21:22:34] <jameson> ;->
[21:22:48] <Fingolfin> wjp: guess where I picked jameson up!
[21:22:58] <Fingolfin> and chimera|wookin didn't tell us all that time!
[21:23:15] <Fingolfin> wjp: I met LordHavoc in #sdl; he and knghtbrd brought me to #twilight
[21:23:16] --> _wjp has joined #exult
[21:23:17] <_wjp> grr
[21:23:24] <-- wjp has left IRC (Read error to wjp[ip503c5297.speed.planet.nl]: Connection reset by peer)
[21:23:39] <Fingolfin> there, LordHavoc made a careless comment, which revealed to me that jameson was in #freesci!
[21:23:40] <Fingolfin> muwahahahah
[21:23:47] <Fingolfin> wjp: hm
[21:24:01] <jameson> Damn. I must choose my lieutenants more carefully... ;->
[21:24:05] <_wjp> hehe :-)
[21:24:11] --- _wjp is now known as wjp
[21:25:00] <Fingolfin> jameson: I mean, I can understand if you have no time for exult, but <sob> we all feared for your live <sob>!
[21:25:08] <jameson> ;-)
[21:25:12] <Fingolfin> we thought you dead, taken away by the Guardian or something
[21:25:12] <Fingolfin> :)
[21:25:28] <jameson> 'twas an elaborate plan of mine, to fool him into thinking I was gone...
[21:25:45] <Fingolfin> =)
[21:35:20] <jameson> How's SI support coming along, BTW?
[21:36:20] <wjp> I think it's playable without cheating up to the Batlin & the wall of lights scene
[21:36:22] <Fingolfin> very well
[21:36:30] <Fingolfin> jeff fixed some plot stoppers today
[21:36:31] <jameson> Cool!
[21:36:41] <Fingolfin> and dominus is close to finishing SI, though with a bit of cheating :/
[21:36:41] <wjp> and quite a bit further if you don't mind a little cheating every now and then
[21:37:06] <Fingolfin> our bug tracker now is full with many bugs in SI, though, where you have to cheat, but identifying a problem is the first step to fix it :)
[21:37:07] * jameson realizes that he still needs to build a package for the last release
[21:37:14] <Fingolfin> :)
[21:37:25] <wjp> speaking of which... any alpha6 coming soon?
[21:38:20] <Fingolfin> hm
[21:38:22] <Fingolfin> ho hm
[21:38:23] <Fingolfin> well
[21:38:24] <Fingolfin> should :)
[21:39:03] <jameson> Thanks for the offer, though!
[21:41:48] <jameson> Got to go now, but... I'll be back.
[21:41:51] <jameson> Definitely.
[21:41:52] <jameson> Really.
[21:41:54] <jameson> Honestly.
[21:41:58] <jameson> ;->
[21:41:58] <wjp> hehe :-)
[21:42:00] <wjp> bye
[21:42:04] <jameson> Bye!
[21:42:14] <Fingolfin> bye :)
[21:42:20] <-- jameson has left IRC (jameson has no reason)
[21:46:00] <wjp> I have to go too... I should stop playing Avernum when I should really go to bed :-)
[21:46:34] <wjp> g'night
[21:46:40] <-- wjp has left IRC (Leaving)
