[15:14:49] <fingolfin> hi
[15:20:39] <-- fingolfin has left IRC (Client Exiting)
[15:58:37] <wjp> maybe it would be fun to add the "sword-in-the-stone" thingie as an easter egg when you get 60 strength from LB :-)
[15:59:02] <Colourless> no, i disagree
[15:59:28] <Colourless> i wouldn't want the avatar to be considered the next lord of britannia? would you? :-)
[15:59:36] <wjp> hehe :-)
[15:59:51] <wjp> I guess not :-)
[16:01:40] <Colourless> i wonder how long the human gestation period is in britannia. I mean, if we wait 9 months, will Nell give birth? :-)
[16:02:55] <wjp> lol
[16:15:38] <Colourless> my comment reminds me of one of the quotes from SI where one of the people was complaining that it was impossible to get female avatar's pregnant.
[16:48:23] <wjp> hmm, I don't remember that one
[16:48:41] <Colourless> well then, read the SI quotes :-)
[16:49:21] <wjp> what file triggered those again in exult?
[16:49:53] <Colourless> i don't konw :-)
[16:50:56] <wjp> quotes.flg
[16:51:46] <wjp> Why didn't the chicken cross the road? The usecode wasn't written yet! hehe :-)
[16:55:24] <wjp> hmm, I didn't remember any of those
[16:55:56] <Colourless> :-)
[17:15:52] <wjp> I have to go

[20:32:24] --> Sslaxx has joined #exult
[20:32:50] <Sslaxx> Hello.
[20:32:57] <Colourless> hi
[20:33:28] <Sslaxx> How are you?
[20:34:01] <Colourless> good
[20:34:41] <Sslaxx> Dirty nappies still going to be a weapon?
[20:35:09] * Sslaxx had a good laugh reading that thread.
[20:35:33] <Colourless> we can't change that
[20:35:47] * Sslaxx wouldn't want you to!
[20:36:01] <Colourless> the original is the same
[20:36:33] <Sslaxx> Been a while since I played the DOS version.
[20:37:22] <Colourless> good :-)
[20:37:43] * Sslaxx agrees.
[20:38:03] <Sslaxx> Oh, did they mention anything about Mors Gotha in Pagan?
[20:38:09] <Colourless> nope
[20:38:13] <Colourless> no mention of her
[20:38:22] * Sslaxx thought not.
[20:39:53] <Sslaxx> Does Ascension use Usecode?
[20:40:20] <Colourless> i'm pretty sure it does use some form of usecode
[20:43:10] <Sslaxx> Oh, ExUlt doesn't create some files in gamedat that U7Wizard requires. Any way round this?
[20:43:26] <Sslaxx> Or should I wait for ExultStudio?
[20:44:19] <Colourless> u7wizard isn't compatible with Exult
[20:44:31] * Sslaxx nods.
[20:44:35] <Sslaxx> Gotcha.
[20:45:31] <Colourless> there are some difference between the way Exult and the originals handled savegames which makes u7wizard incompatible with exult
[20:45:59] <Sslaxx> I see.
[20:46:25] <Sslaxx> What OS do you develop with?
[20:52:30] <Fingolfin> Colourless uses windows :)
[20:52:40] <Colourless> Windows Xp
[20:52:50] <Sslaxx> I see.
[20:53:01] <Colourless> used to use 2K, but i recently updated
[20:53:14] * Sslaxx is interested in Linux, GCC and now Kylix/dcc.
[20:53:30] <Fingolfin> Colourless: hey how did I manage to answer 10 secs before you? did you have to think about what OS you use? :)
[20:54:12] <Colourless> i didn't see actually see the question, then i 'heard' you reply so I replied as well :-)
[20:54:34] <Sslaxx> Didn't see it? Strange.
[20:54:39] <Colourless> Fingolfin uses a Mac btw :-)
[20:55:09] <Sslaxx> Does he code?
[20:55:14] <Fingolfin> I use a Mac with OS X and gcc
[20:55:23] <Fingolfin> Sslaxx: as in : program?
[20:55:24] <Fingolfin> yeah
[20:55:25] <Fingolfin> :)
[20:56:05] * Sslaxx noddles.
[20:56:10] <Fingolfin> Sslaxx: well, he "overlooked" it, that can happen if you do other things besides chatting, e.g. work
[20:56:34] * Sslaxx nods.
[20:56:44] * Colourless is doing work... on Exult actually... the new upcomming Exult cinematic script to be precise
[20:57:36] <Sslaxx> Cinematics? For what?
[20:57:45] <Colourless> Intros, Endgames
[20:57:48] <Sslaxx> Getting the SI end movie to work?
[20:57:56] <Colourless> no :-)
[20:59:26] <Colourless> it's a scripting language that will allow us and others to create cinematic sequences like the intros and endings fairly easily. At the moment they are all hard coded into Exult
[20:59:53] * Sslaxx nods.
[20:59:59] <Sslaxx> Sounds fun.
[21:00:13] <Sslaxx> How much hard-coded stuff do you plan on changing?
[21:00:30] <Colourless> oh it is. Writing up documentation, that is what i'm doing at the moment, is always fun :-)
[21:00:46] <Fingolfin> Colourless: ah good to hear you are working on it
[21:00:47] <Colourless> well, the intros and endgames will all be converted into scripts
[21:00:56] <Fingolfin> Colourless: already got something one can look at? :)
[21:01:01] <Fingolfin> Colourless: I mean, doc wise
[21:01:20] <Colourless> yeah kind of
[21:01:25] <Sslaxx> Kind of?
[21:01:36] <Colourless> it's a little messy, and obviously not finished
[21:02:54] * Sslaxx nods.
[21:03:11] <Colourless> fingolfin: you want me to send you what I've done so far. the input would be a good idea
[21:10:27] <Colourless> fingolfin???
[21:12:55] <Fingolfin> sorry
[21:13:05] <Fingolfin> yeah please send it
[21:13:19] <Fingolfin> I was writing a longish mail to the libtool mailing list, that distracted me
[21:13:22] <Colourless> how do you want me to send it
[21:13:28] <Fingolfin> via email
[21:13:32] <Colourless> ok
[21:13:47] <Fingolfin> or you could try DCC now that I think of it
[21:13:54] <Fingolfin> (snail mail would be bad, takes too long)
[21:14:01] <Colourless> hehe
[21:14:05] <Fingolfin> 8-)
[21:14:10] <Colourless> bit expensive too
[21:14:24] <Fingolfin> yeah, for that big heavy packet you would send me :)
[21:15:57] <Colourless> well, DCC doesn't seem to be working
[21:16:20] <Colourless> i'll email it
[21:17:44] <Fingolfin> it would have worked if I had seen that incoming dcc request and pressed the "Accept" button :)
[21:17:57] <Colourless> oh ok. i'll try again :-)
[21:18:23] <Fingolfin> I pressed connect...
[21:18:25] <Fingolfin> hmm
[21:18:30] <Fingolfin> no progress..
[21:18:48] <Colourless> doesn't seem to be working :-)
[21:18:54] <Fingolfin> no
[21:19:06] <Fingolfin> well, then email it, after all
[21:19:10] <Fingolfin> are you behind a firewall?
[21:19:10] <Colourless> i'll email it :-)
[21:19:13] <Colourless> yeah
[21:22:32] <Colourless> ok, it's sent
[21:28:25] <Fingolfin> got it
[21:29:01] <Colourless> ok

[21:44:29] <fingolfin> Colourless: ah if you want to go, I email yo umy comments
[21:44:32] <fingolfin> ok, sure!
[21:44:35] <fingolfin> :)

[21:45:33] <Colourless> email me your comments
