[02:03:47] --> Copernican has joined #exult
[02:04:18] <Copernican> i think i've found a bug, maybe not
[02:04:36] <Copernican> i'm running exult 1.2 on os x
[02:05:28] <Copernican> the docs state that exult no longer needs the paths of the sfx packs spelled out in exult.cfg, e.g., <waves>exult_bg.sfx</waves>
[02:05:43] <Copernican> but the sfx do not work unless you actually include that line
[02:06:10] <Copernican> maybe exult is looking for jmsfx.flx, not exult_bg.flx
[02:06:24] <Copernican> anyway, the behavior does not match the docs
[02:06:29] <Copernican> more importantly
[02:06:52] <Copernican> the engine spits out messages like "SFX 109 is out of range"
[02:07:00] <Copernican> and i am not hearing sfx
[02:07:17] <Copernican> for example, when i click on the vital stats icon, i should hear a little effect
[02:07:24] <Copernican> but i get one of those "out of range" messages
[02:07:59] <Copernican> am i doing something incorrectly, or should i submit a bug?

[07:09:58] <servus> Wee, working 80 hours a week and I manage time to work on Exult3D :)
[07:10:37] <servus> I'm going to remerge it with a fresh CVS CO soon, then just diff. Still leaves the megs and megs of data, though, of course.
[07:11:36] <servus> Camera is being locked down to isometric, by the way, with 45 degrees of freedom from being top-down, and a 75' FoV for now.
[07:33:36] <-- pwr has left IRC ("Client exiting")
[08:11:39] <Colourless> Copernican: exult should be looking for the sfx flexes in the data dir. if you put them somewhere else thn you'll need to specify the path
[09:56:35] <Flooder> yo
[10:23:51] <Flooder> when I'm here. nobody will talk :)
[10:29:45] <Sevalecan> <-- nobody
[10:30:34] <Flooder> :P

[14:59:26] --> Baastuul has joined #exult
[18:03:06] <Copernican> colourless: the sfx files are in the data dir
[18:03:22] <Copernican> that's my point
[18:03:41] <Copernican> the docs say you shouldn't have to explicitly set the paths
[18:03:47] <Copernican> but it doesn't work unless i do
[18:03:57] <Copernican> and i'm wondering if this is an os x quirk
[18:34:17] <wjp> does it say anything about finding or not finding the digital sfx file at startup?
[18:35:28] <wjp> hm, and you say it does work if you specify a full path?
[18:36:13] <wjp> oh, maybe I see where the confusion is: it doesn't need the _path_ of the SFX file if it's in Exult's data dir
[18:36:18] <wjp> you still need to specify the filename
