[00:56:56] <Kefka> hmm we need more people in here
[00:57:34] <Kefka> to whoever is reading exultbot's logs and who has an always on connection, come in here and idle
[01:28:20] <MeatShield> why more people? curious
[01:40:22] <Kefka> i dunno
[01:40:32] <Kefka> it seems like it'd liven up the room
[01:40:40] <Kefka> get u7 discussions going
[01:40:48] <Kefka> be able to discuss bugs
[01:45:34] <-- Kefka has left IRC (Client Exiting)
[02:09:38] <MeatShield> TV hrm...
[02:10:07] <MeatShield> 3 pm there.. watching cartoons? :)
[02:30:47] --> Kefka has joined #exult
[02:37:29] * MeatShield exults
[02:39:21] <MeatShield> you code exult?
[02:40:16] <Kefka> nope
[02:40:35] <Kefka> i just hang out here
[02:40:42] <Kefka> answer people's questions when i can
[02:40:55] <MeatShield> ahh.. do coders ever stop by
[02:41:40] <Kefka> yes
[02:41:47] <Kefka> every single day actually
[02:42:01] <Kefka> wait here until about 6 or 7 am EST
[02:42:09] <Kefka> sometimes beforehand
[02:42:53] <Kefka> regulars are fingolfin, colourless, wjp and of course Kirben (he's always here)
[02:43:08] <Kefka> jsf comes in ocassionally
[02:43:46] <MeatShield> 6 am.. damn europeans.. :)
[02:44:01] <Kefka> heh
[02:44:30] <Kefka> actually i think jsf is the only guy from the US
[02:45:06] <MeatShield> i see..
[02:45:27] <MeatShield> bummer
[02:45:29] <Kefka> yeah
[02:45:38] <Kefka> though i usually am up when they all come in
[02:46:21] <MeatShield> well. no matter.
[02:46:28] <Kefka> you are on a cable modem, stick around.. is your cable PPPoE?
[02:46:34] <MeatShield> i'l post in the discussion boards
[02:47:50] <MeatShield> no.. my cable is.. umm.. not ppoe
[02:48:01] <MeatShield> its at&t!
[02:48:17] <Kefka> well
[02:48:19] <Kefka> heh
[02:48:28] <Kefka> do you have to click a button or something to sign on?
[02:48:34] <Kefka> or is it literally ALWAYS on?
[02:49:06] <Kefka> PPPoE stands for Point to Point Protocol over Ethernet if you were curious
[02:50:39] <MeatShield> Sorry.. I know what it means. :) Its just ethernet.
[02:50:52] <Kefka> ok
[02:51:07] <MeatShield> But anyway, why?
[02:51:44] <Kefka> well, if its not PPPoE, you can idle in here :)
[02:52:21] <MeatShield> Glad i don't have pppoe.. i dunno why provides would kick you off.
[02:52:36] <Kefka> they want to free up the ip addresses
[02:53:28] <MeatShield> so why would non pppoe be that why.. how come they don't set the dhcp to.. say.. 1 hour interval.
[02:53:57] <MeatShield> no matter
[02:54:14] <MeatShield> exultbot sit!
[02:55:02] <Kefka> well, the idea is, if you are using your connection, you can keep the ip
[02:55:16] <Kefka> its just when you turn off the computer, thats when they want the address to be freed
[02:55:48] <MeatShield> hrm.. hehe i use a embeded device fo rmy gateway...
[02:55:51] <Kefka> some people with cable modems use their connection just a couple hours a week
[02:55:59] <Kefka> ah
[02:56:08] <MeatShield> its on all the time even when the puter is off
[02:56:23] <MeatShield> i can do connection shareing and play half life witha friend..
[02:56:41] <Kefka> ah.. i have a linksys router here
[02:56:50] <MeatShield> d-link here
[02:56:53] <Kefka> 3 pc's hooked up
[02:56:57] <MeatShield> same here
[02:57:10] <Kefka> better than paying $8.00 a month for extra ips
[02:57:25] <MeatShield> yup.
[02:57:28] <Kefka> plus i like the idea of the hardware firewall
[02:57:52] <MeatShield> you puter nerd... er.. umm... nevermind.
[02:57:54] <MeatShield> :)
[02:58:05] <Kefka> heheh
[03:22:33] <MeatShield> when did you start playing ultima.. i started with u4 on pc in 1987
[03:22:56] <MeatShield> its funny.. i would not be 'into' computers if not for ultima
[03:23:12] <MeatShield> caus ei needed something better than 8088 for ultima 7
[03:24:02] <MeatShield> so i got a new pc and it had a modem and a stoner in school got me started on bbss in 1992.. and i kept learning.. i owe it all to ultima..
[03:24:06] <MeatShield> :)
[03:30:43] <Kefka> er
[03:30:46] <Kefka> sorry
[03:30:53] <Kefka> was busy compiling something
[03:31:30] <Kefka> first ultima was ultima 3
[03:31:43] <Kefka> i just saw it on the shelf and said this looks cool
[03:36:21] <MeatShield> my step dad gave u4 to me one day.. my first puter game.. yay.. ....
[03:39:48] <Kefka> heh
[03:40:02] <Kefka> i was playing games LONG before that on my dad's 8088
[03:40:59] <MeatShield> i didn't have aputer before that..
[04:36:18] <Kefka> do you like exult? do you like to idle? then step right in to #exult!
[04:50:45] <MeatShield> humorus
[04:51:10] <Kefka> i posted a message on the discussion forum
[04:51:24] <Kefka> lets see if anyone comes in
[04:51:40] <MeatShield> i saw
[04:52:04] <MeatShield> i need find a coder to point me in the right direction.. or use grep..
[04:53:45] <MeatShield> I wish there were stones to kick.. but no.. i'd have to go outside..

[12:01:05] <Kefka> hello [reverse]
[12:01:19] <[reverse]> have you checked out my 'double trouble' thread on exult?
[12:01:49] <Kefka> not yet.. i have been studying
[12:01:59] <[reverse]> ok.
[12:02:03] <Kefka> and i'm about to eat some breakfast
[12:02:32] <[reverse]> i live in finland and i just got out of school bout 1 hour ago.
[12:03:00] * Kefka lives in the US
[12:03:06] <Kefka> GMT-5
[12:03:15] <[reverse]> GMT +2
[12:03:33] <[reverse]> 7 hours... so the clock is 8 there
[12:03:39] <Kefka> yep
[12:04:04] <[reverse]> could you help me with my Exult-problem?
[12:04:46] <Kefka> hmm, i just read it.. i dunno what to tell you.. are you using alpha5?
[12:04:54] <[reverse]> yeah.
[12:06:30] <Kefka> hmm
[12:06:49] <wjp|work> try removing the "<waves>.</waves>" sections entirely
[12:06:55] <[reverse]> ok...
[12:07:01] <wjp|work> hi, btw
[12:07:50] <[reverse]> hi wjp.
[12:08:00] <Kefka> [reverse]: i think wjp is better suited to solving your problem.. i looked over your .cfg and it looks right
[12:08:12] <[reverse]> ok, i got it almost working...
[12:08:27] <[reverse]> now i'll just have to add a few files into the STATIC folder
[12:09:26] <[reverse]> thanks.
[12:10:36] <[reverse]> i gotta go. i'll be back if there's anything new...

[13:40:48] <Colourless> hi
[13:42:45] <fingolfin> hi
[13:44:47] <Kirben> Should I do a re-release of alpha 5 ? since version number is incorrect in exult itself.
[13:45:03] <Colourless> it's probably a good idea
[13:45:17] <Kirben> ok
[13:45:32] <Kirben> use current cvs or older source ?
[13:46:47] <Colourless> good question.
[13:46:56] --> silverscale has joined #exult
[13:50:10] <fingolfin> what changes are there in CVS?
[13:50:23] <fingolfin> maybe released it as 0.94.1 or so
[13:55:02] <Kirben> 0.94.1.alpha5 ?
[13:55:38] <-- silverscale has left IRC ()
[13:59:22] --> destruct has joined #exult
[14:00:34] <Kirben> very little changed in cvs rcently
[14:04:54] <fingolfin> hm, well, go ahead and make a new release
[14:05:04] <fingolfin> I suggested 0.94.1 to mark that something changed
[14:05:16] <fingolfin> or just do a new release w/o any notice ;)
[14:05:25] <fingolfin> tell people who complain to redownload it then ;)
[14:07:41] <Kirben> ok I'm currently compiling as 0.94.1.alpha5 but will use same filename
[14:19:00] <Kirben> file has been uploaded to SF, could someone please add it to the site.
[14:19:35] <fingolfin> Žk
[14:20:17] <fingolfin> oh yeah, my browser crashed ;)
[14:33:49] <fingolfin> Kirben: done
[14:34:11] <Kirben> Thanks

[15:09:26] --> EazyCheez has joined #exult
[15:09:31] <EazyCheez> hello all
[15:10:08] <Colourless> hi
[15:10:40] <EazyCheez> hey cheat menu man :) I see your name quite a bit ;)
[15:11:07] <Colourless> :)
[15:13:08] <EazyCheez> well I'm playing SI, and I decided to go knock off the goblins at Fawn Tower. I suppose it wasn't a good thing; Shamino was killed, and it locked up when I proceeded into the tower to take care of more goblins. I'm sure I could use the Hourglass of Fate to resurrect him, but that lockup is bad. I hope that doesn't happen usually.
[15:14:45] <Colourless> does Exult just stop doing anything at all?
[15:15:34] <EazyCheez> yeah, at that point... I take a few steps into the tower and HANG... I have to kill it with Ctrl-Alt-DEL... fortunately the screen mode snaps back to my normal mode :)
[15:16:33] <Colourless> is there anything in stdout.txt or stderr.txt?
[15:17:24] <Colourless> I'm guessing proably not
[15:17:32] <EazyCheez> yeah... want me to send them to you?
[15:17:41] <EazyCheez> there is quite a bit there yeah
[15:18:03] <Colourless> you can if you want: triforce@merlin.net.au
[15:18:17] <EazyCheez> can't accept DCC's or what?
[15:18:32] <Colourless> you can try, not sure if it will work
[15:19:22] <Colourless> it 'should' work
[15:20:43] <Colourless> this may take a while :)
[15:21:51] <EazyCheez> wow
[15:21:59] <EazyCheez> a log of all the actions of the game!
[15:22:06] <EazyCheez> I never noticed that
[15:22:39] <Colourless> well, it's not normally seen
[15:24:33] <EazyCheez> ah, Exult deletes it upon a successful exit?
[15:24:59] <Colourless> no, it's always there
[15:26:58] <Colourless> nothing obviously wrong in the output. I'm guessing the freeze was due to a pathfinding problem
[15:27:17] <EazyCheez> so it wouldn't happen if I tried it again the same way?
[15:27:19] <wjp|work> going home; bye
[15:27:21] <-- wjp|work has left IRC ([x]chat)
[15:27:28] <EazyCheez> bye willem
[15:27:56] <EazyCheez> all pathfinding is different I guess huh?
[15:28:18] <Colourless> it might
[15:31:11] <EazyCheez> huh, weird... this happens in both BG and SI... I'm not sure, but soon after I restore a game, the characters' food levels go WAY down, almost to 0 (and sometimes to 0!) I have to cheat my way back up again quickly to avoid "getting hurt" :)
[15:31:43] <Colourless> hmmm
[15:32:21] <EazyCheez> and speaking of dying in SI... it don't happen :/ What's up with that?
[15:33:17] <Colourless> i've no idea whats going on with that. check to see in the cheat flags to see if the tournament flag is set on
[15:34:11] <EazyCheez> it is... why is it set, and what is it for?
[15:34:46] <Colourless> it's set to stop you from getting killed. Why is set, no idea
[15:35:22] <EazyCheez> I can't turn it off, it won't let me hit the number, and when I do advanced, that's the 'cursed' flag instead of the Tournament flag
[15:35:46] <Colourless> cycle through the numbers in the advanced till you get to it
[15:36:01] <EazyCheez> strange, it'll let me hit 7 to go naked, but not 3 to turn off tournament... ok :)
[15:36:23] <Colourless> i haven't set up all the flags yet
[15:36:52] <Colourless> you want flag 29
[15:37:36] <EazyCheez> strange, it'll let me hit 7 to go naked, but not 3 to turn off tournament... ok :)
[15:37:42] <EazyCheez> ah heck
[15:37:52] <EazyCheez> when am I gonna learn NOT to drink in here?!
[15:38:09] <EazyCheez> just spilled Diet Dr Pepper on my keyboard... d0f
[15:38:15] <Colourless> heh
[15:38:36] <EazyCheez> but, this is a pretty strong keyboard... I've done it before with no damage
[15:38:42] * EazyCheez is sooooo stupid
[15:38:43] <EazyCheez> :)
[15:47:28] --> wjp has joined #exult
[15:47:38] <wjp> hi
[15:47:53] <EazyCheez> hey Willem!
[15:48:10] <Colourless> hi
[15:48:57] <EazyCheez> ARRRGH! This guy, I think he's the deformed guy who wants to talk to this girl in Fawn, keeps saying "I must work" and such, and never begins his conversation with the guard! And I'm STUCK in conversation mode :(
[15:49:17] <EazyCheez> here we go
[15:49:21] <EazyCheez> just had to wait
[15:49:23] <EazyCheez> hehe
[15:49:47] <wjp> hmm, missing faces in the beos version?
[15:49:49] <wjp> strange
[15:50:44] <EazyCheez> wjp: you know what? that also happens sometimes in the win32 version (in SI only in fact)... when different people talk in the same conversation, sometimes the first face is not restored...
[15:50:57] <wjp> no, I meant in paperdolls
[15:51:05] <wjp> in conversations it's a known bug
[15:53:36] <EazyCheez> ah hehe
[15:58:14] <wjp> the tournament flag is most often set when something special needs to happen when either you or your opponent dies
[15:59:39] <EazyCheez> in this case, being teleported to Monk Isle... but even that doesn't happen when the t-flag is on
[15:59:46] <EazyCheez> how
[16:00:01] <EazyCheez> how did you know we were talking about that? :)

[16:03:52] <wjp> time flies
[16:04:04] <EazyCheez> too bad there's no 'always on top' for windowed exult :)
[16:04:10] <EazyCheez> that'd be cool
[16:07:22] <fingolfin> hi willem, ryan, EazyCheez
[16:07:26] <wjp> hey Max
[16:07:37] <fingolfin> anybody know if xchat has an auto-away mode? =)
[16:07:40] <Colourless> hi again
[16:12:39] <EazyCheez> hello :)
[16:13:18] <EazyCheez> man, I'm in the training room in Monitor (the place just west of the List Field) and Luther is getting his damn ass beat :)

[17:59:31] <fingolfin> omg! xchat 1.8.3 was released 2 days ago!
[17:59:45] <wjp> 1.8.3 already?
[17:59:51] <fingolfin> yeah
[17:59:55] <wjp> they sure release a lot faster than we do :-)
[18:00:02] <fingolfin> minor updates
[18:00:05] <wjp> 1.8.1 here :-)
[18:00:07] <fingolfin> we should release more often, too
[18:00:10] <fingolfin> at least once a month
[18:00:30] <fingolfin> and at least one bug is fixed in 1.8.3 that is concerning me
[18:00:44] <wjp> there are a couple of annoying bugs in 1.8.1
[18:00:45] <fingolfin> http://xchat.org/changelog.txt
[18:00:48] <fingolfin> read it
[18:01:05] <fingolfin> the thing that is my problem: copy & paste from Xchat to Mac OS X apps doesnŽt work
[18:01:20] <fingolfin> I have to copy text in xchat, paste it into an xterm, then copy it from there again
[18:01:29] <fingolfin> it seems as if this might be fixed
[18:03:12] <fingolfin> wjp: if your problems are not fixed in there : did you try reporting them? ;)
[18:03:27] <wjp> I already knew they were fixed in 1.8.2
[18:03:48] <fingolfin> ahh ok ;) btw, Kefka has some issues with xchat 1.8.2, IIRC
[18:04:15] <EazyCheez> mykeyoardisscrewed
[18:04:19] <EazyCheez> ahahaha
[18:04:22] <wjp> and besides, I don't report bugs, I fix them ;-)
[18:04:46] <wjp> usually only to find out they were already fixed in a newer release, but that's beside the point ;-)
[18:04:50] <fingolfin> well, ok, but then you should submit your bug fixes later on ;)

[18:09:37] * wjp deciphers
[18:10:16] <wjp> yes, you need a replacement :-)
[18:12:01] <fingolfin> wjp: do you know if there is an auto-away mode for xchat? IŽd like it to change my nick if I do not do anything for say 15 minutes or so...
[18:13:03] <wjp> hmm, dunno
[18:14:36] <wjp> might be possible to script it

[18:16:47] <fingolfin> sadly, copy&paste is not better... :(
[18:16:52] <wjp> :-(
[18:17:42] <fingolfin> IŽll email that guy, telling him to put up a link to fink, and asking him on this - I am too lazy to dig through this code, learingn glib/gtk on the way =]
[18:23:46] <EazyCheez> erhh

[18:23:58] <EazyCheez> damn

[18:31:05] <fingolfin> =)
[18:35:15] <EazyCheez> do you help with exult finny?
[18:35:44] <fingolfin> look into the credits I am in there =) or into the "About Us" page on the web site, i am in ther as well

[19:40:40] <Fingolfin> thx
[19:56:16] <-- destruct has left IRC (Meh <k!15b8>)
[20:22:51] <wjp> hmm, someone on the forums seems to be having some trouble with the macos classic version
[20:23:10] <wjp> a lot of trouble in fact
[20:23:59] <Fingolfin> really?
[20:24:01] * Fingolfin surfs
[20:24:05] <wjp> http://exult.sourceforge.net/forum/read.php?f=1&i=1402&t=1402
[20:26:24] <Fingolfin> hm weird. I do not have any of those problems (not even the "old" one he mentions with charachter faces)
[20:26:34] <Fingolfin> and i have several other macos users who use a5 just fine
[20:26:44] <Fingolfin> hm, and his stderr.txt...
[20:26:51] <wjp> yes, interesting
[20:27:06] <wjp> could it be he caused a s/\r/\n/ while copying the files?
[20:27:11] <Fingolfin> game data problem _ IŽd like to think he guess right there ;)
[20:27:12] <wjp> or the other way
[20:27:34] <Fingolfin> could be of course... in his U7 files that is
[20:28:25] <wjp> does macos classic have a md5 tool?
[20:28:46] <wjp> or any other checksumming thing that's also available on other platforms?
[20:29:47] <Fingolfin> sadly, i fear no :/ hmm, wait IŽll ask somebody
[20:30:28] <wjp> OSX probably does have md5sum, right?
[20:30:35] <wjp> (just wondering)
[20:31:21] <Fingolfin> yeah it has
[20:35:32] * wjp considers writing a small calculator gnome applet
[20:35:59] <wjp> would be kind of convenient for quickly converting hex<->dec and that kind of thing
[20:35:59] <Fingolfin> he ;)
[20:36:20] <Fingolfin> I still need to see a good powerful *nice looking* cocoa based calculator
[20:36:45] <wjp> have you seen any good powerful nice looking calculators at all?
[20:38:34] <wjp> didn't we already talk about this sometime before? :-)
[20:42:09] <wjp> how can kcalc possibly lock up for about 10 seconds when you try to take the log of 0??
[20:43:27] <wjp> and segfault when you try to take the log of the resulting "error" value... *sigh*
[20:43:51] <Fingolfin> =)
[20:44:05] <wjp> maybe it's booby-trapped against gnome users ;-)
[20:44:08] <Fingolfin> IŽll try this one: http://www.apple.com/downloads/macosx/math_science/calculx.html
[20:44:21] <Fingolfin> though it is shareware
[20:44:35] <wjp> looks pretty good
[20:44:50] <Fingolfin> wjp: hey, we could start a cross platform calculator project ,) the main problem for me is to design a sensible, simple yet powerful UI :)
[20:45:39] <wjp> if you ever seriously consider it, count me in :-)
[20:47:29] <Fingolfin> that one looked nice, but it is shareware, and I need to register it to even try the hex mode :(
[20:47:38] <wjp> bah
[20:50:04] <wjp> funny that in that calculator page they list "exclusively for Mac OS X" as though it is an advantage
[20:54:02] <wjp> is there any syntax in C for binary integer constants?
[20:54:11] <wjp> (like 0x for hex, 0 for octal?)
[20:54:32] <Fingolfin> nope
[20:54:42] <wjp> strange
[20:54:42] <Fingolfin> arghhh!!!
[20:55:04] * Fingolfin just checks his old email account - last check was 5 month ago - 380 messages
[20:55:17] <wjp> heh, mine had 'only' 260 when I checked it last week :-)
[20:55:17] <Fingolfin> the first 50 all look like spam, except 3 or 4 messages from that provider
[20:55:26] <Fingolfin> gosh
[20:55:33] <Fingolfin> and they do not even carry my email address?!?!?
[20:55:54] <Fingolfin> oohh wait that is not my old account
[20:56:04] <wjp> ?
[20:56:11] <Fingolfin> that is the old account of my father, we used to share it, I am checking his email address it seems ;)
[20:56:14] <Fingolfin> that explains the tons of spam
[21:00:34] <wjp> brb
[21:10:05] <wjp> b
[21:16:01] <wjp> hmm... how interesting... this is a check for enter, apparently:
[21:16:06] <wjp> if(key == GDK_Return
[21:16:06] <wjp> || key == GDK_KP_Enter
[21:16:06] <wjp> || key == GDK_ISO_Enter
[21:16:06] <wjp> || key == GDK_3270_Enter)
[21:16:39] <wjp> (I'm just browsing some code of other applets)
[21:18:47] <Fingolfin> ugh
[21:18:51] <Fingolfin> pain
[21:21:01] <wjp> I found this interesting "mini_commander" applet. Its UI is very similar (nearly identical :-) ) to what I had in mind
[21:21:31] <wjp> (just a field for text entry and a few small buttons)
[21:23:03] <wjp> time to.. uh... 'recycle' some code, I guess ;-)
[21:25:01] <wjp> hmm, Ryan is working on Exult but he's not here?

[21:26:17] <wjp> hi
[21:26:27] <PoorCNewb> N'er been on IRC before.
[21:26:40] <Fingolfin> hi
[21:26:42] <wjp> don't worry, we won't eat you ;-)
[21:26:48] <PoorCNewb> Noooo!

[21:27:06] <PoorCNewb> (Comes back out)
[21:27:14] * wjp whispers back: wait until he thinks he's safe
[21:27:23] <PoorCNewb> Hmm, this is pretty cool.
[21:27:37] <PoorCNewb> I gotta tell my buddies about this
[21:28:10] <PoorCNewb> (byb) I'm the Michael T. guy in the forums
[21:28:40] <PoorCNewb> (Doh, I didn't mean (byb)! I meant (fyi)
[21:30:43] * wjp is wjp from the forums, obviously ;-)
[21:30:57] <PoorCNewb> Nyahh..
[21:31:27] <PoorCNewb> I need to practice on IRC's different commands
[21:31:43] <wjp> "/me" and "/join" are probably the most used ones
[21:31:56] <PoorCNewb> I read about those
[21:32:19] <PoorCNewb> For sending "you and me only" messages right?
[21:32:33] * wjp demonstrates "/me"
[21:32:46] <PoorCNewb> I see
[21:32:53] * PoorCNewb wjp I think I get it.
[21:33:08] * wjp thinks so too
[21:33:25] <wjp> private messages are "/msg nickname message"
[21:36:09] <PoorCNewb> And I have a report to do from class (Doh!)
[21:36:24] <wjp> :/
[21:37:20] <PoorCNewb> Oh well. I guess I'll be back tomorrow. See you peoples later.
