[00:14:14] <Dominus> colourless: before I got to bed, another test I've done seems to show that the problem is really some endian problem. Curiously the PPC built of Exult does not have color problems when AR Correction is turned one
[00:14:15] <Dominus> on
[00:20:22] <Dominus> quick test on my real ppc mac machine showed that it also poses no problem on that.
[00:23:41] <-- Dominus has left IRC (Quit: Leaving.)
[01:36:01] <Colourless> lets see, red and green swapped, and there is no blue...
[01:36:25] <Colourless> guessing its something like ARGB assumed and the actual format is BGRA
[01:56:43] <Colourless> committed a fix... can't see that it could be anything else.

[03:05:22] --- ChanServ gives channel operator status to Dominus
[03:10:29] <Dominus> killer headache woke me up, now waiting for the painkillers to kick in... so got time to test compile...
[03:16:46] <Dominus> the changes are working fine
[03:43:52] <Colourless> yay
[03:48:26] <Dominus> :)
[03:48:53] <Colourless> i'm not going to attempt to fix the win9x issues. if forcing the video driver to directx fixes the problem, and rendering output works on all other systems (which it obviously didn't till this morning) then i'm not going ot chase a bug that I consider to be an OS and/or SDL problem
[03:48:56] <Dominus> tested on the ppc machine as well, so it isn't fixing on intel and screwing the ppc - working fine
[03:49:28] <Dominus> I'm not sure whether the last person on that thread isn't on XP, though
[03:50:27] <Dominus> we *could* add an option to the cfg to set directx
[03:51:09] <Dominus> same as we used to have an option to set waveout, until you overhauled the audio code the first time after the 1.2 release+
[03:53:11] <-- Colourless has left IRC (Ping timeout: 255 seconds)
[03:53:22] <Dominus> and something is still wrong with the rendering order of objects sometime - best example is the trinsic stable - the horse almost everytime is rendered beneath the garbage

[04:05:40] --- ChanServ gives channel operator status to Colourless
[04:08:53] <Dominus> hello again...
[04:09:22] <Dominus> colourless I wrote some things right when you were gone
[04:09:50] * Colourless looks at the log
[04:11:22] <Dominus> for adding directx setting in the cfg, malignant manor had submitted a patch *before* you overhauled the rendering code
[04:11:39] <Colourless> no idea what draw order issues would be. i don't know much about it in exult
[04:11:53] <Colourless> i'll add a setting for it
[04:12:51] <Dominus> thanks
[04:13:26] <Colourless> though need to modify things a little in the exult menu cause there is awful awful mouse lag
[04:13:49] <Colourless> its something i should have fixed a long time ago :-)
[04:14:24] <Dominus> since your changes mouse remains "captured" in windowed mode, need to cmd-tab out of the window at times
[04:14:35] <Dominus> don't know if that is anisse on windows as well
[04:14:49] <Dominus> *is an issue*
[04:16:09] <Dominus> now I'm painless and will try to sleep again :)
[04:19:04] <Colourless> that shouldn't be caused by caused by anything i did, but i do i have an idea why it might have happened
[04:19:59] <Colourless> if it is what i think, it would guess it only occur moving the mouse across the bottom or right edges
[04:24:28] <-- Rottingbeef has left IRC ()
[04:29:24] <Kirben> Why about a setting to switch SDL video driver? if people are having issues, they can switch via the SDL environmental variable. Which makes more sense, since the issue would effect all SDL programs.
[04:29:30] <Kirben> about=add
[04:31:29] <Kirben> I never understood why SDL switched to default to windb, since that causes more issues, compared to previous default of directx (which is better supported).
[04:36:16] <Colourless> probably switched to windib because the opengl backend needs it

[10:53:51] <Dominus> colourless, yes, you are right, the mouse capture is only at the bottom and to the right
[12:02:18] <Dominus> I do so love the smell of a frozen thread.

[21:47:10] <Dominus> colourless, writing the docs and two things I noticed, if I can already be nitpicking about the changes:
[21:47:52] <Dominus> - fill quality feels more right for me beneath the fill modes/AR Correction
[21:49:04] <Dominus> - can you make the red checkmark in our options gumps universally work like Cancel? It seems odd that it confirms the settings in other option gumps but works as cancel in the video options
