[19:25:06] <Marzo> Dominus: https://trello.com/c/q8glb4NQ
[19:41:22] <Dominus> wheeeeee :=)
[19:42:26] <Dominus> I just found this edited long version of the SI intro (the one from Denis Loubet's site but with the effects and speech added) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LS1E7WWtg2g&fmt=18&gl=BR&hl=pt
[19:56:46] <Marzo> If someone converts it to Flic format (the castle+guardian+ship portion), it should be easy to code in
[19:58:07] <Dominus> is it all one flic in the original files?
[19:58:40] <Dominus> (otherwise it would be even easier as I think only the ship/sailing is better and longer)
[20:02:20] <Marzo> Lets see: "LB presents" is one; castle with thunder is another; guard walking in is a third; scroll opening is another; guardian is another; LB saying "worst fear" line is another; each boat shot is another; first title screen (noninteractive) is another
[20:02:35] <Marzo> So every time there is a scene change, there is a new flic
[20:03:23] <Marzo> Music/SFX/voice is separate from the actual flic
[20:03:26] <Dominus> hmm, that seems definitely doable... Let me investigate for the original video from Denis again and maybe I can provide a flic of that part
[20:04:45] <Marzo> And there is a lot of hard-coded stuff related to playing flics in the intro
[20:05:24] <Marzo> Seems like flic is not a very good format…
[20:06:25] <Marzo> But the good part is that we could check for the presence of these additional files (or bundle them in exult_si.flx) and do the extended intro if they are there
[20:09:31] <Marzo> Hm
[20:09:57] <Marzo> Maybe there is some additional data lurking in SI's data files that tell how the flics are played
[20:10:14] <Marzo> Because what Exult does is madness
[20:11:10] <Dominus> oh no... why did i mention this... I didn't want to goad you into another direction...
[20:16:23] <Marzo> Hm, seems like there isn't, none that is immediately obvious
[20:16:34] <Marzo> Will just make a note of it and leave for the future
[20:17:21] <Dominus> the original movies disappeared from the web, but the wayback machine still has them at https://web.archive.org/web/20110226105326/http://www.io.com/~dloubet/gallery/animate/serpisle.htm
[20:17:54] <Dominus> but only the last one is without the copyright notice :)
[20:21:02] <Marzo> https://trello.com/c/YvbBe7YF
[20:22:19] <Dominus> nice
[20:23:23] <Marzo> Amyways, going to bed now; have a full day tomorrow
[20:23:32] <Dominus> good night!
[20:24:00] <Marzo> Have to go make an insurance policy for the apartment we are going to rent, then sign the lease
[20:24:08] <Dominus> (I'm investigating how to convert *TO* flic and am trying to get Denis hand out the original flic files :))
[20:24:09] <Dominus> oooh
[20:24:24] <Dominus> when is moving in?
[20:24:40] <Marzo> So it serves as a warning: depending on how it goes moving to the apartment, we may not be able to go to the wedding
[20:24:53] <Dominus> aaarrrghhh....
[20:24:53] <Marzo> If all goes well, start of next week
[20:24:58] <Marzo> At the latest
[20:25:33] <Marzo> I will still make an effort to finish your wedding present
[20:26:06] <Dominus> yeah!!!
[20:26:09] <Dominus> and I secured the room for you if you arrive on Friday night :)
[20:26:20] <Marzo> To be honest, we weren't expecting to be able to find one so quickly
[20:26:33] <Marzo> Or to be able to *rent* it so quickly
[20:26:58] <Marzo> I thought we would still be at the hotel for a couple more weeks
[20:27:06] <Marzo> At least
[20:27:41] <Dominus> but that's good news, way better than staying in a hotel for weeks
[20:27:43] <Marzo> Because here, every person renting an apartment asks for the last 3 paychecks
[20:28:07] <Dominus> yes that is very common in Europe
[20:28:12] <Dominus> actually no it isn'T
[20:28:16] <Marzo> It is excellent news, yes
[20:28:34] <Dominus> I confused it with asking for a three months rent deposit :)
[20:30:11] <Marzo> I think that the law here limits how large the deposit can be, and a few other things related to it
[20:31:09] <Marzo> So the owners (or rather, the banks which own the mortgages) want another way of being sure they will get paid
[20:31:16] <Dominus> right
[20:32:24] <Dominus> but great they will rent it to you without the past paychecks. you must be getting restless in a hotel
[20:32:50] <Marzo> At least we are in an apart hotel, so we can cook
[20:33:14] <Marzo> Meaning we can get much better food, for a fraction of the price
[20:33:45] <Dominus> I see, yes for that long a stay you need to be able to cook or go crazy...
[20:33:48] <Marzo> And with some farmers' markets nearby, it gets really cheap
[20:34:18] <Marzo> The apartment is actually near this hotel, which is near the metro station
[20:34:39] <Marzo> (well, bus, metro *and* train station)
[20:37:36] <Dominus> cool then you don't have to reorient :)
[20:38:31] <Marzo> Anyways, going to bed for real this time
[20:38:35] <Marzo> Good night
[20:38:36] <Dominus> :)
[20:38:40] <Dominus> god night
[20:38:47] <-- Marzo has left IRC (Quit: Leaving)
[20:39:11] <Dominus> grrr, again "god" night... damn
