[12:32:21] <jan_here> why don't you go into town.. shopping, having a coffee somewhere..
[12:32:35] <jan_here> maybe overthrow some government with software
[12:32:43] <daniel`> too late
[12:32:45] <jan_here> or aspire world domination?
[12:32:54] <daniel`> haven't got a car
[12:33:01] <daniel`> and I've only got 6 or so years to live
[12:33:07] <jan_here> what part of the globe your on?
[12:33:17] <daniel`> australia
[12:33:53] <jan_here> okay, 2am down there, right?
[12:34:08] <daniel`> 10:40pm actually :)
[12:34:22] <jan_here> thought it would be 12 hours difference..
[12:34:38] <jan_here> got to look that one up.
[12:34:47] <daniel`> so what is it like in denmark?
[12:35:10] <jan_here> de= germany, denmark=dk
[12:35:45] <jan_here> 2:30 in the afternoon. nice, dry and sunny, not hot but not that chilly either..
[12:36:03] <daniel`> oh, my apologies :)
[12:36:27] <jan_here> "haven't got a car" what kind of a place do you live in? subburb?
[12:37:09] <daniel`> i live in a small city
[12:37:16] <daniel`> population around 500,000
[12:37:29] <daniel`> its roughly 2 hours north of the capital sydney
[12:37:42] <jan_here> sounds like my hometown. and only one decent place to go for a drink eh? all the rest are "old-people" places..
[12:37:59] <daniel`> hehe
[12:38:23] <daniel`> im saving for a car
[12:38:33] <daniel`> but it's only going to be a peice of crap
[12:38:52] --- sbx|afk is now known as sbx
[12:39:04] <sbx> hi
[12:39:21] <jan_here> who cares?
[12:39:32] <jan_here> you wanna impress chicks? :)
[12:39:56] <daniel`> the chicks i want arn't impressed by cars
[12:40:27] <daniel`> hey sbx
[12:41:49] <jan_here> :)
[12:42:19] <sbx> anyone played system shock?
[12:42:35] <daniel`> yep
[12:42:38] <daniel`> ponly the 2nd one though
[12:42:44] <daniel`> loved it
[12:42:57] <jan_here> yes, me
[12:43:10] <jan_here> great game, you know thsshp?
[12:43:10] <sbx> i am playing 1 now
[12:43:42] <sbx> i saw the webpage
[12:44:11] <jan_here> the WP is a little outdated. on sourceforge are more recent files
[12:44:30] <sbx> can you play through the game with it?
[12:44:50] <jan_here> not yet afaik..
[12:45:14] <jan_here> the game logik is not yet implemented. you can "walk" through it.
[12:45:24] <sbx> too bad
[12:45:27] <sbx> i wish SS had configurable keys
[12:45:34] <jan_here> I havenÄ#t looked at it for some time now.
[12:45:41] <jan_here> might be different by now.
[12:49:12] <jan_here> by the way (for those who know him): Robert T. Online is SHODAN!
[12:51:34] <sbx> i thought shodan was a woman
[12:51:41] <sbx> the voice
[12:52:11] <sbx> im only up to level 3
[12:53:05] <jan_here> It's only a disguise.. she wants to fool us into hooking up to her system, so she can control us ..

[12:54:12] <jan_here> there are some nice websites still online about SS1, you know the site www.ttlg.com?
[12:55:44] <sbx> i visited their system shock links page
[12:56:01] <sbx> found on google
[12:56:11] <sbx> i am not interested in the other things because the only other game i played was Thief
[12:56:30] <daniel`> cyas :)

[15:27:34] --> Vaccinium has joined #exult
[15:27:52] <Vaccinium> hey, anyone here?
[15:28:22] <Vaccinium> would any of you guys know where I could get some usecode example files, ie. patch.zip showing usermade conversations
[15:29:26] <Vaccinium> 'ello?
[15:29:44] <Vaccinium> im talking to myself
[15:33:16] --> wjp has joined #exult
[15:33:16] --- ChanServ gives channel operator status to wjp
[15:33:43] <wjp> hi
[15:34:06] <Vaccinium> everyones idle
[15:34:23] <Vaccinium> wjp, would you know where I could get some usecode example files, ie. patch.zip showing usermade conversations
[15:34:45] <Vaccinium> I asked these guys but like I said, everyones idle.
[15:34:58] <Colourless> hi wjp. Vaccinium the only example is our island patch afaik
[15:35:22] <wjp> yes :-)
[15:35:27] <Vaccinium> shit
[15:35:36] <wjp> why?
[15:36:06] <Vaccinium> It'd be easier to write my own extras into U7 and Serpents Isle if I had some examples to go by
[15:36:35] <wjp> so what's the problem with our island patch?
[15:37:07] <Vaccinium> nothing, i learned the basics of conversation usecode through it, though I still dont know how to create cutscenes
[15:37:26] <Vaccinium> ingame cutscenes that is
[15:37:36] <wjp> cutscenes? uh oh :-)
[15:37:56] <Vaccinium> uh oh?
[15:38:03] <Vaccinium> no documentation?
[15:38:03] <wjp> they are moderately painful to do
[15:38:09] <wjp> none
[15:38:13] <Vaccinium> im willing to learn
[15:38:18] <wjp> exult sources and original usecode
[15:38:26] <Vaccinium> ouch
[15:39:02] <Vaccinium> there are no easy commands to simply move an npc to a specific location or create spell effects?
[15:39:19] <wjp> oh, that's not that hard
[15:39:38] <Vaccinium> okay
[15:41:47] <wjp> ever read (any kind of) assembly code?
[15:41:53] <Vaccinium> never
[15:43:11] <Vaccinium> The first form of script I've ever altered or rewritten was your patch example
[15:44:31] <wjp> I wonder if we could hack in a little cutscene-like thingie into our island patch
[15:47:59] <wjp> my u7-usecode skills are a bit rusty, though :/
[15:48:47] <Colourless> drcode would be the best person to attempt something like that
[15:48:54] <Colourless> i think he knows how you would do it
[15:49:28] <wjp> unfortunately he's on vacation atm

[16:05:45] * Lord_Nightmare wonders where else he saw the zebra-centaur picture in the intro to ultima 6. I KNOW I've seen that picture elsewhere....
[16:09:19] <wjp> hm, the painting in the upper-left?
[16:10:04] <wjp> don't think I ever saw that before (never even noticed it in the U6 intro :-) )
[16:10:56] <Lord_Nightmare> i think its one of denis loubet's paintings
[16:11:09] <Lord_Nightmare> but i don't see it on his site
[16:24:18] <Lord_Nightmare> maybe i'll email him and ask.
