[00:05:53] <-- Dark-Star has left #exult ()
[00:06:03] <Darke> You can't already? *grin* *points to U8Win*
[00:14:14] <wjp> hi Darke
[00:14:26] * wjp is kind of busy playing Avernum 3 atm ;-)
[00:15:51] * Darke guessed. *grin*

[00:33:43] <artaxerxes> hello
[00:35:59] <Darke> Hi.
[00:36:16] <artaxerxes> pretty dead in here tonighty
[00:36:53] <artaxerxes> in 10 hours I'm in the plane!
[00:37:39] <artaxerxes> direction st-martin, a caribean island! yay!
[00:38:25] <wjp> hi artaxerxes
[00:38:33] <wjp> hm, sounds good :-)
[00:38:49] * wjp is going to finish just one more dungeon before going to bed.. really ;-)
[00:39:15] <artaxerxes> you won't here from me for 2 weeks... unless the tropical storm nails us to the ground! :)
[00:41:54] <Darke> Sounds fun. *grin*
[00:43:07] <artaxerxes> http://slashdot.org/articles/02/09/28/0238232.shtml?tid=106
[00:43:11] <artaxerxes> just hilarious
[00:50:59] <artaxerxes> anyone up for a network game with me while I'm having a sleepless night ?
[00:52:22] * wjp should really go get some sleep now
[00:52:26] <artaxerxes> ;)
[00:52:35] <wjp> more monster slaying tomorrow :-)
[00:52:44] <wjp> artaxerxes: enjoy your vacation :-)
[00:52:47] <artaxerxes> thx
[00:52:50] <artaxerxes> I will
[00:53:04] <wjp> g'night
[00:53:07] <-- wjp has left IRC ("Zzzz...")
[00:53:12] <artaxerxes> if the plane crashes, know I've had fun with the exult team
[00:53:37] <artaxerxes> Darke: you're up for a network game ?
[01:00:51] <Darke> Network game? Of what? *grin*
[01:03:16] <artaxerxes> you pick
[01:03:30] <artaxerxes> got to be open-source and available on the web
[01:03:45] <artaxerxes> or on a distro's CD
[01:05:13] <artaxerxes> bzflag maybe
[01:05:22] <artaxerxes> freeciv
[01:05:57] <Darke> bzflag? I've not really played freeciv.
[01:06:16] <artaxerxes> I never played bzflag
[01:06:26] * Darke is actually trying to think of network games playable under linux. Aside from muds, etc, he can't think of many. Tuxracer?
[01:06:28] <artaxerxes> neither have I played freeciv
[01:06:34] <artaxerxes> got that
[01:06:42] <artaxerxes> is it network enabled ?
[01:07:03] <artaxerxes> we should hack in network support for Exult... *grin*
[01:07:29] * Darke thwaps artaxerxes. No! Don't start that arguement up again! *grin*
[01:08:02] <artaxerxes> I have to reconfigure a bunch of things for bzflag if we want to play with it.
[01:08:21] <artaxerxes> so what's the pick ? bz or freeciv ?
[01:08:28] * artaxerxes would prefer freeciv
[01:10:32] * Darke would have to hunt down and compile freeciv, or bz too. Hmm... how does freeciv play anyway? I presume it's very civ like?
[01:10:45] * Darke urks. You haven't played it, not much point asking you. *grin*
[01:11:05] <artaxerxes> well I've played once.
[01:11:28] <artaxerxes> "<artaxerxes> neither have I played freeciv" should read: <artaxerxes> neither have I played freeciv much
[01:11:45] <artaxerxes> yup it's civ-like
[01:11:49] <artaxerxes> turn by turn
[01:11:54] <artaxerxes> a bit slow but fun
[01:11:56] <Darke> I compiled it, loaded it up, and poked at it, never played a game though. *grin*
[01:12:26] <artaxerxes> what's your distro ? maybe I can send you the rpms
[01:12:54] <Darke> RPMs? What's that? *grin* Gentoo. It's a 'comple everything from source' distro. Which is a bit of a pain sometimes.
[01:13:25] <artaxerxes> heard of it... like it takes 24h for an install
[01:13:37] <artaxerxes> or more
[01:16:03] <artaxerxes> freeciv can be played alone against AI btw
[01:16:28] <Darke> Depends what you want really. *shrug* The 'minimal' install, perfect for a server will take you about 6 hours, but that's 6 hours completely unattended, I start it before going to bed. *grin*

[01:16:57] <artaxerxes> hey Kirb
[01:17:11] <Kirben> Hi
[01:17:14] <artaxerxes> want to join us in a freeciv game ?
[01:19:09] <Kirben> no thanks

[01:21:46] * Darke blinkblinks. Feeling bouncy today?
[01:21:50] <artaxerxes> can't get out of the ticker mode
[01:21:54] <artaxerxes> ;)
[01:24:18] <artaxerxes> btw, I've tried EOne and it severly messed my machine
[01:24:47] <artaxerxes> most of my menus are gone and my printer has gone beserk
[01:25:05] <artaxerxes> Eone in itself is nice but damage the machine quite a bit
[01:25:12] <Darke> Ouch!
[01:25:24] <artaxerxes> yup
[01:25:30] <artaxerxes> that stinks
[01:26:33] <artaxerxes> I think I'm gonna reinstall the distro... mandrake 9.0 is out and for once, I think I'll buy the box
[01:26:53] <artaxerxes> after all I've d/l their iso image so many times that I owe then that
[01:27:38] * Darke nods. He bought the SuSE boxed set with DVD way back when he first started, because that was the distro he used. *grin*
[01:28:45] <artaxerxes> I used SuSE a while back. wasn't bad. I'm hooked with Mandrake now
[01:28:59] <artaxerxes> I really should try debian
[01:30:14] * Darke tried debian, just couldn't get into it.
[01:30:54] <artaxerxes> btw, Eone should be read OEone
[01:33:33] * Darke nods. He saw a news item on /. about that, it looks rather neat. *grin*
[01:33:40] <artaxerxes> I've tried rh, mandrake, stormix, turbolinux and that's about it
[01:33:48] <artaxerxes> it is neat
[01:34:00] <artaxerxes> it just messes up with your install, that's _ALL_ :)
[01:34:26] <artaxerxes> I must say I was impressed though. I still am. Nice install etc.
[01:34:32] <artaxerxes> 80 MB d/l though
[01:39:32] <Darke> Hmm... source? Or is it binary only?
[01:39:51] <artaxerxes> source in available on the site
[01:40:45] <Darke> Cool. I should grab it and see if I can add it to the gentoo portage system. It doesn't appear to be there. *grin* At least it shouldn't mess around with my system too badly that way.
[01:43:31] <artaxerxes> true :)
[01:43:53] <artaxerxes> in the meantime, I've reloaded my old Heroes of Might & Magic 3 game
[01:44:05] <artaxerxes> you've gotta love Loki for making the port
[01:45:04] <Darke> Cool.
[01:45:30] <Darke> I didn't like HOMM3 much though, I find it just gets too teadious in the mid game ordering all the heros about. *grin*
[01:46:11] <artaxerxes> it's the only commercial game I have for linux and the only HOMM I've played so I'm not complaining ! :P
[03:12:38] <artaxerxes> well. I'm gonna leave here.
[03:12:55] <artaxerxes> Have fun and see ya in a while
