[06:03:15] <weirdo> hello
[06:03:26] <weirdo> how often does the critical bug happen?
[06:03:35] <weirdo> will i hit it if i play ultima for the first time?
[06:29:32] <-- Dominus has left IRC (Read error: Connection reset by peer)

[06:32:44] <sh4rm4> weirdo, probably yes
[06:32:58] <sh4rm4> it seems dungeon are pretty bugged
[06:33:02] <weirdo> thank you for being sincere with me on this one :-)
[06:33:25] --> Dominus1 has joined #exult
[06:33:37] <sh4rm4> this is a major showstopper...
[06:34:03] <sh4rm4> i'm thinking about switching to 2007 release, because i didn't experience any trouble at that time
[06:34:24] <weirdo> is it hard to reproduce?
[06:34:41] <weirdo> maybe automating the reproduction process would help
[06:34:51] <sh4rm4> there are actually a couple of bugs which could be related
[06:34:53] <weirdo> then, either bisect or just regular ol' debugging
[06:35:08] <-- Dominus has left IRC (Ping timeout: 244 seconds)
[06:35:22] <sh4rm4> those bugs happen randomly
[06:35:45] <weirdo> too bad it's written in C++, i could give a hand but i hate that language
[06:35:53] <weirdo> note: i don't know the language, just guessing *g*
[06:36:19] <sh4rm4> i hate it as well. keeps me from hacking on it as well. if only it would be C
[06:36:43] <weirdo> F# would be nice as well, it even runs under mono :)
[06:36:50] <sh4rm4> eek
[06:36:51] <weirdo> with OpenTK
[06:37:33] <sh4rm4> functional == fail, .net == fail

[14:50:50] <Dominus> time for us to implement reading the games from a zip or 7zip archive (I presume tht's what the installer from gog uses)
[14:51:07] <Dominus> gonna take a look later and see how it works with exult
[14:53:58] <shazza> hi #exult!
[15:57:29] <-- shazza has left IRC (Ping timeout: 258 seconds)

[18:36:56] <wjp> hm, didn't SI have a clue book too? The GOG version only seems to have the BG one :/
[19:14:54] <sh4rm4> the complete edition i bought 10 years ago had only a small booklet containing the answers to the copy protection questions
[19:16:05] <sh4rm4> wjp, have you purchased the GOG thing ?
[19:17:31] <wjp> yes
[19:17:57] <wjp> the cluebooks were sold separately from the games (pre-gog)
[19:18:04] <sh4rm4> is it using exult or dosbox ?
[19:18:15] <wjp> dosbox according to the gog forum
[19:18:41] <sh4rm4> oic

[21:58:02] <Dominus1> the ultima 7 collection featured the SI hint book as pdf

[22:08:24] --> Marzo has joined #exult
[22:17:50] <Dominus1> comparing the gog release to the BG game on my machine I realized that I had patched my usecode file to fix the poisoned liquor conversation
[22:18:22] <Dominus1> hi Marzo. Does keyring have a fix for the poisoned liquor conversation?
[22:18:44] <Marzo> No
[22:19:56] <Dominus1> hmm, it's not BG fixes :)
