[15:44:21] --> Malignant_Manor has joined #exult
[15:45:43] <Malignant_Manor> Dominus: you should be able to create a feature_request tag for the Github issue tracker.
[15:47:04] <Malignant_Manor> Sourceforge probably has a way to link to the Github issue tracker. I would go through the tickets and see if some should be closed before transferring.
[15:55:27] <Malignant_Manor> Marzo: Did you see this patch about using Munt lib for MT-32 emulation? https://sourceforge.net/p/exult/patches/103/
[15:56:20] <Malignant_Manor> nvm it is is the trello
[15:59:29] <Malignant_Manor> Dominus: I guess a patches tag could also be added for existing patches. It would probably be better to decide whether to implement them or close them first.
[16:02:45] <Malignant_Manor> Dominus: Does the current exult.msg not have a language selection?
[16:10:23] --> frob has joined #exult
[16:13:34] <Dominus> Malignant_Manor: hi
[16:14:17] <Dominus> Localized exultmsg currently only works by adding them as exultmsg.txt in the patch folder of the official translations
[16:15:26] <Dominus> For real support we'd need to recognize the official translations
[16:15:42] <Dominus> probably by crc check of the usecode file
[16:16:53] <Dominus> AND manual override in the cfg by adding a <language> tag for inofficial translations that don't provide their own exultmsg.txt
[16:20:26] <Dominus> So, Malignant_Manor, I guess you say aye for using the github issues?
[16:45:10] <Malignant_Manor> The only problem I see is not being able to easily exclude it from searches since most will be untagged.
[16:45:45] <Malignant_Manor> We would need to tag every bug with bug or something.
[16:49:32] <Dominus> That's only a thousand tags ;)
[16:49:53] <Dominus> But I hope that conversion tool adds proper tags
[16:52:48] <Malignant_Manor> I guess you can -label:feature_request
[16:52:56] <Malignant_Manor> in the filter section
[16:57:23] <Malignant_Manor> The release seems much further away than when we talked about it before Marzo's vacation.
[16:58:25] <Malignant_Manor> I guess we could use iso 639-3 as a guideline for names.
[17:00:22] <Malignant_Manor> We import strings so something like eng_brit should still work.
[17:02:08] <Malignant_Manor> We could have it point to folders for mods/patches.
[17:02:49] <Malignant_Manor> or it could search exultmsg_eng.txt
[17:04:34] <Dominus> What do you mean? What issue are you talking about?
[17:04:40] <Malignant_Manor> auto would be select based on localization
[17:06:21] <Malignant_Manor> We should have something setup for exultmsg.txt localization. We should also probably have a way for mods to know the localization.
[17:08:35] <Malignant_Manor> I have to go.
[17:08:40] <-- Malignant_Manor has left IRC (Quit: ChatZilla 0.9.92 [Firefox 47.0/20160604131506])
[17:29:27] <Dominus> Still don't understand what you mean. Sounds as if you want to make it too complicated
[17:30:13] <Dominus> We detect the correct game type already and by default that uses exultmsg.txt
[17:31:23] <Dominus> Now we should detect language (BG de, es,fr and SI es) and for those use the correct exultmsg_xx.txt
[17:32:02] <Dominus> Let's not worry about mods and patches.
[17:32:43] <Dominus> We don't even have mods detect whetber BG or FOV which would be more important ;)
[17:33:42] <Dominus> However we should allow a language override in modname.cfg

[21:40:29] <GitHub> exult-web/master 6f3f8bf DominusExult: Added download section for old third party mods. These require a snapshot to play but may not fully work since their usecode is built against old ucc.
