[00:36:01] <wjp> g'night
[00:36:04] <-- wjp has left IRC ("Zzzz...")
[00:36:33] * Coren_ is back
[02:04:50] --> Kirben has joined #exult
[02:04:50] --- ChanServ gives channel operator status to Kirben
[02:06:55] <Coren_> Uuugh. I *really* didn't design my data structures thinking about saving.
[04:00:20] * Coren_ reengineers most data structures.
[08:31:30] --- DarkeZzz is now known as Darke
[11:11:44] --> Colourless has joined #Exult
[11:11:45] --- ChanServ gives channel operator status to Colourless
[11:12:08] <Colourless> hi
[11:13:31] <Darke> Hi!
[11:26:16] * Coren_ waves.
[11:26:32] <Coren_> OOoooo! Man, I am so completely incredibly amazingly good!
[11:27:21] <Coren_> I just spend the past 9 hours completely rewriting entity handling in LoW, and with four typos, it builds and works on the first try. :-)
[11:27:47] * Coren_ doesn't remember a stroke of inspired coding like this in a Loooong time.
[11:29:49] * Darke snickers.
[11:32:08] <Coren_> In fact, this is too good to be true. I'm sure I have a suble, nasty bug lurking somewhere.
[11:32:13] * Coren_ hunts.
[11:33:02] <Colourless> :-)
[11:46:16] <Coren_> Well, I found /a/ bug, though it hardly qualifies as subtle or evil.
[11:47:57] <Coren_> In fact, it's not so much a bug as an oversight.
[11:49:02] <Darke> Of course is subtle, nasty bugs were easy to find, they'd certainly not be subtle, nor as nasty. *grin*
[11:49:11] * Coren_ chuckles.
[11:49:16] <Coren_> You have a point there. :-)
[11:50:02] <Colourless> :-)
[11:50:10] * Darke points the point at Colourless. For no reason other then it needs to point *somewhere*.
[12:29:22] <Coren_> Ah. SF's cvs is back.
[13:24:30] <-- Kirben has left IRC (Read error: 104 (Connection reset by peer))
[13:30:53] --> Fingolfin has joined #exult
[13:30:54] --- ChanServ gives channel operator status to Fingolfin
[13:31:01] <Fingolfin> yo
[13:31:02] <Coren_> Fingolfin! :-)
[13:31:07] <Colourless> hi
[13:33:45] * Coren_ just implemented npc death. :-)
[13:34:13] * Coren_ runs around killing everything in sight.
[13:34:27] * Darke cackles!
[13:35:00] <Coren_> Which is particularly easy: I don't have combat yet to all I have to do is point at some npc and hit 'k'. :-)
[13:38:17] * Darke snorks.
[13:39:41] <Coren_> "Die, British! Die!"
[13:41:19] --> kuran has joined #exult
[13:42:30] <-- kuran has left IRC (Client Quit)
[13:45:09] * Coren_ snorkels.
[13:49:20] <Coren_> "Oh, no! That's not what it says at all! It's German for 'The, British. The.'"
[13:49:44] * Darke laughs.
[13:49:48] <Colourless> :-)
[13:50:02] <Colourless> simpsons references are never off topic
[13:50:30] <Darke> Any relation to "Bond, James Bond"? *grin*
[13:51:01] <Coren_> Darke: note how Colourless picked the reference up. Now hide in shame. :-)
[13:51:32] * Darke doesn't watch the simpsons and is both ashamed and amazed when he does spot the references. *grin*
[13:51:58] <Coren_> "I'm not a number! I'm a free- oh, wait a minute. I am number 5."
[13:55:29] <Coren_> From the same episode, one of my faves [about some nefarious plot by the bad guy] "Of course! It's so simple... no, wait a minute. It's not, it's needlessly complicated."
[13:56:35] * Darke snickers.
[14:05:40] * Coren_ attemps to figure out how Altara knows if the Listener is dead or not.
[14:09:12] --> artaxerxes has joined #exult
[14:09:12] --- ChanServ gives channel operator status to artaxerxes
[14:09:22] <artaxerxes> hi all
[14:09:49] <Coren_> Hello, artaxerxes.
[14:10:11] <Darke> Hi!
[14:10:17] <Colourless> hi
[14:20:03] --> wjp has joined #exult
[14:20:04] --- ChanServ gives channel operator status to wjp
[14:20:05] <wjp> hi
[14:20:12] <Colourless> hi
[14:20:49] <Darke> Hi!
[14:25:30] --- Fingolfin is now known as Fingolfin|afk
[14:25:39] <Fingolfin|afk> hi and bye, willem :-)
[14:26:17] <wjp> :-)
[15:03:11] --> phxl_ has joined #exult
[15:03:16] <phxl_> yo
[15:03:30] <wjp> hi
[15:03:47] <phxl_> I can't believe it, I found a proxy that actually works for IRC!
[15:04:05] <phxl_> hmmm
[15:04:09] <phxl_> or does it?
[15:04:33] <phxl_> >_<
[15:04:35] <wjp> depends on what it's trying to do :-)
[15:04:38] <Colourless> hi
[15:04:51] <phxl_> well, it's supposed to be an anonymous proxy
[15:05:02] <wjp> --> phxl_ (~phxl@pD9E27FC9.dip.t-dialin.net) has joined #exult
[15:05:15] <Darke> Careful. freenode regularly sweeps for them. *grin*
[15:05:17] <phxl_> yeah, doesn't look likt it
[15:05:23] <phxl_> *like
[15:05:30] <phxl_> let me try again D:
[15:05:35] <-- phxl_ has left IRC (Client Quit)
[15:18:29] <-- artaxerxes has left #exult ()
[15:46:54] <-- Fingolfin|afk has left IRC ("42")
[17:00:42] <Coren_> wjp: You there? :-)
[17:02:04] * wjp nods
[17:02:41] <Coren_> Does LoW still build and work for you? I rewrote a large chunk of the entity system last night.
[17:03:07] <Coren_> And there's a bonus feature for you to play with. :-)
[17:05:02] <wjp> it still builds
[17:05:46] <wjp> I don't see armour/boots on the paperdoll, currently
[17:05:54] <wjp> I can equip and unequip them, but I don't see them
[17:05:58] <Coren_> Huh?
[17:06:00] * Coren_ tries.
[17:06:32] <Coren_> Damn. When did /that/ break?
[17:06:43] <wjp> hm, it's quite annoying that the paperdoll closes when you click anywhere other than on an object
[17:06:49] <Darke> Your 9 hour coding session? *grin*
[17:07:00] <wjp> (especially when you can't see where the objects actually are ;-) )
[17:07:02] <Coren_> Darke: No, it worked for a while after that. :-)
[17:07:18] <Colourless> well, Coren_, i'm i'm not mistaken, you were expecting something to die badly :-)
[17:07:27] <Coren_> wjp: Yeah, I'm planning on putting a show/hide icon rather than defaulting the entie paperdoll for that.
[17:07:38] <Colourless> s/i'm i'm/if i'm/
[17:07:41] <Coren_> Yeah, wjp: Aim at some unsuspecting mobile and hit 'k'
[17:07:47] * Coren_ smiles evilly.
[17:08:20] * wjp kills rat. *eg*
[17:08:34] <wjp> I've been annoyed at that rat right outside my room for a while :-)
[17:09:17] <Coren_> You killed Jerry!
[17:09:30] <wjp> hm, the runes are behaving a bit weird. Clicking way above them still selects them
[17:10:04] <Coren_> wjp: remember what I said about there being a large square for all the billboard standins wether it's visible or not? ;-)
[17:10:05] <wjp> jerry?
[17:10:18] <wjp> Coren_: um, no :-)
[17:10:26] <Coren_> Jerry the Rat. :-) He's not *enabled* by default, but he's the key to debug-mode cheats in UW2. : -)
[17:10:58] <wjp> :-)
[17:12:53] <Coren_> Spiders look especially nice when dying. :-)
[17:31:36] <Colourless> should be going now
[17:31:37] <Colourless> cya
[17:31:41] <-- Colourless has left IRC ("casts invisibility")
[18:16:35] <Coren_> Aha! Found the bug.
[18:17:58] <Coren_> Heh. You're just blind, willem. The armor and all *was* drawn.
[18:18:08] <Coren_> With alpha=0.0, but it was drawn. :-)
[18:20:08] <Coren_> Fixed and commited.
[18:27:35] <wjp> lol
[18:27:44] <wjp> my eyesight must be deteriorating :-)
[18:28:18] * Coren_ fixes flying monsters not falling to the ground when dead.
[18:28:49] <wjp> hmms... can't connect to cvs server
[18:29:04] <Coren_> Oh? It worked fine minutes ago.
[18:31:22] * Darke blames Coren_. Just 'cause.
[18:31:53] * Coren_ chuckles.
[18:32:35] <Darke> He breaks 'da code. He breaks 'da *cvs*. Whaza he gonna break next? 'Da irc channel?
[18:33:25] * Coren_ smirks.
[18:33:44] * wjp oopses and renames Configuration.cc to Configuration.cpp before Colourless finds out
[18:33:44] <Coren_> Look at it this way, Willem, you get to try again and get the death-in-flight patch in one fell swoop.
[18:33:58] * Darke incidentally blames all this chattering on the irc channel for the fact despite the fact it's close to 4:30am down here again, he's not produced any substantive lines of code. All these talkative people. *grin*
[18:34:21] <Coren_> Hey, *I* produce substantice lines of code. :-)
[18:34:33] * wjp is copy-pasting lines of code! :-)
[18:34:39] <Coren_> 'map 69' is particually found to case the key-of-death. :-)
[18:34:51] <Coren_> s/found/fun/
[18:34:52] * Darke points to wjp. Now *there* is a produtive coder!
[18:34:56] <Coren_> s/case/cast/
[18:35:17] * Coren_ nominates Willem for Extreme Coder of the Year. :-)
[18:35:25] * Coren_ ducks behind Darke.
[18:35:28] * Darke blinks at 'map 69' and decides it wouldn't be in his best intrests to make fun of it.
[18:35:44] <matto|wookin> 4:30 AM... time for sleep
[18:36:12] <Coren_> Sheesh. You guys all live in funny timezones. :-)
[18:36:36] * wjp is pretty sure it isn't 4:30 AM for matto now
[18:37:45] * Darke 's timezone is *perfectly* *normal* Everyone else's timezone is bizzare! *nodnod*
[18:37:53] * wjp gazes at the pretty moongate
[18:38:08] <wjp> ...and walks straight through it
[18:38:18] <Coren_> "Kal Vas Keycap!"
[18:38:46] <matto|wookin> no it's 11:38 AM for me
[18:38:58] <matto|wookin> I was commenting on Darke being up this late
[18:39:02] <Coren_> wjp: Most ethereal plane moongates do not work; they aren't teleports, they are a_hack traps.
[18:40:00] <wjp> a_hack? hehe :-)
[18:40:51] <Darke> They certainly learn the art of descriptive coding at LGS. *grin*
[18:44:18] <Coren_> If you want a moongate that works, the one in the vault on 'map 48' does.
[19:08:12] * Darke yawns and decides if he doesn't sleep now, he might as well stay awake all day, and does the relatively insane thing of deciding to go to sleep. *grin* Night!
[19:08:30] <Coren_> Insane indeed. Nite. : -)
