[00:27:41] <Dominus> hi
[00:27:49] <Dominus> Kirben: q
[00:29:40] <Dominus> Kirben! are you there?
[00:32:36] <Kirben> yes
[00:32:44] <Dominus> I noticed that the updated /data/defaultkeys.txt was missing (not updated) in the binary snapshot.
[00:33:17] <Dominus> and how is exult studio coming along in the Windows version?
[00:33:27] <Kirben> ok will fix
[00:34:17] <Kirben> Well it compiles but doesn't work right at the moment. It also requires Cygwin/Xfree86 which is huge download
[00:34:54] <Dominus> hmpf, I was hoping for a new toy to play with
[00:34:56] <Dominus> too bad
[00:35:53] <Dominus> but great that you are actually looking into it!
[00:37:12] <Kirben> BTW might be good idea to add that to Faq
[00:37:40] <Kirben> I often get requests about win32 exult_studio
[00:37:47] <Dominus> ? that Exult Studio only works in Linux right now?
[00:38:15] <Kirben> yes and win32 version is in development but not ready
[00:38:45] <Dominus> ok will add in the next update (shouldn´t be too far away)
[00:39:49] <Dominus> Kirben I also got a small text file that explains the use of expack a little - you want to add this to the tools pack?
[00:39:58] <Kirben> ok just DCC
[00:40:02] <Dominus> though I should ask the author first
[00:40:24] <Kirben> Yes best to get authors permission first
[00:40:37] <Dominus> but here you have it first anyway
[00:40:58] <Dominus> I´ll ask him if it´s okay to add it to the source (usefull I think)
[00:41:15] <-- chimera|wookin has left IRC (Ping timeout for chimera|wookin[holladay.cb-travel.com])
[00:41:18] <Kirben> ok let me know response
[00:41:39] * Dominus is franticly looking for the mail address
[00:45:30] --> chimera|wookin has joined #exult
[00:45:50] <Dominus> I´ll notify you
[00:45:53] <Kirben> Ok snapshots are updated, no code changes though
[00:46:10] <Dominus> my first cvs though :-)
[00:46:28] * Dominus is rubbing it on everyone´s nose now
[00:49:07] <chimera|wookin> what's up?
[00:49:15] <chimera|wookin> what are you rubbing in people's noses, Dominus?
[00:49:44] <Dominus> that I made my first cvs commit to the exult source today (though it was only the FAQ) :-)
[00:50:18] * chimera|wookin falls out of chair!
[00:50:34] <Dominus> :-)
[00:50:55] * chimera|wookin watches as a mob of fans breaks through the gates and steams into the courtyard, all chanting "Dominus!" over and over again. Dominus smiles to the crowd, and waves, which causes several people to faint.
[00:51:24] * Dominus bows graciously
[01:08:37] <Dominus> ok, very early morning here, have to go to bed. Good night!

[23:27:35] <Dominus> hi again
[23:28:26] <Dominus> Kirben
[23:30:59] <Kirben> Hi
[23:31:16] <Dominus> got another tools question
[23:31:43] <Kirben> Yes I got email, will update exulttools again soon
[23:31:55] <Dominus> are you able to include shp2pcx as well?
[23:33:13] <Kirben> I will try
[23:33:41] <Dominus> thx, another toy for me to pass the time till studio works in Win32 :-)
[23:37:40] <Kirben> see if this file works
[23:37:56] <Kirben> will need sdl.dll
[23:40:20] <Kirben> Still there ?
[23:40:39] <Dominus> one moment, mirc ignored it, can you resend?
[23:40:49] <Kirben> ok
[23:42:33] <Dominus> asks for palette file... whatever that means now
[23:43:07] <Dominus> Usage: shp2pcx [input file] [output file prefix] [palette file]
[23:45:21] <Kirben> odd, no idea what palette file it wants
[23:45:59] <Dominus> where is wjp when you need him.... in bed most probably :-9
[23:46:05] <Dominus> :-) even
[23:46:26] <Kirben> seen wjp
[23:46:31] <Kirben> ?seen wjp
[23:46:31] <exultbot> wjp left IRC around Wed May 2 20:38:46 2001 (GMT) (Leaving)
[23:47:16] <Dominus> actually as it quits with this message, it doesn´t even ask for the sdl.dll
[23:47:38] * Dominus forgot to put the dll in the folder at first
[23:48:15] <Kirben> hmm maybe it doesn't need it after all, source code just used one sdl include file
[23:49:12] <Dominus> hmm, maybe ask wjp what´s up with the palette file before adding it to the tools
[23:51:00] <Dominus> in the forum someone complained about stuck keys after video change (and I think you submitted a bug report as well sometime ago)
[23:51:08] <Dominus> see sdl-cvs:
[23:51:16] <Dominus> Changes for Tue May 1:
[23:51:26] <Dominus> 1.2.1: Fixed stuck keys when changing the video mode
[23:52:04] <Kirben> Good to see it fixed but generally not a good idea to include sdl cvs version
[23:52:35] <Dominus> nah, I know, i just wanted to point it out to you
[23:52:56] <Dominus> unless they release 1.2.1 I wouldn´t touch it anyway
[23:53:13] <Dominus> 1.2.1: Added support for building under Cygwin on Windows
[23:53:42] <Kirben> Since palette file requirement in shp2pcx seems normal I will add it to tools straight away
[23:54:52] <Dominus> ok
[23:55:04] <Kirben> tools updated
[23:56:08] * Dominus hurries over to the snapshot page hungry for the newest update though he already posssesses all the files and right now wonders about his sanity
[23:57:40] <Dominus> oh, Kirben, can you add the authors name to the expack.txt?
[23:58:20] <Dominus> Marc Winterrowd
[23:59:30] <Kirben> ok
[23:59:48] <Dominus> thanks
