[10:06:17] <Dominus> nice, blackout yesterday from 4:15pm to 11:45pm...
[10:14:29] <Dominus> http://img411.imageshack.us/img411/4896/pcg0910specialmods.png <- the article. The person I was in contact with got me the whole page
[10:38:24] <wjp> nice
[10:43:07] <wjp> redemption seems quite ambitious
[10:45:46] <Dominus> yes, thought so too :)
[10:46:26] <Dominus> I'm interested in whatever engines/mods they wrote about, will find out when I pick up the whole magazine from a friend this week :)

[12:29:43] <-- Kirben has left IRC ()
[12:36:09] <Dominus> hmm, I have one more feature request I'd like to have in a release:
[12:37:17] <Dominus> when Exult is not compiled with ES support, alt+ctrl+m should message a screen "Exullt Studio is not supported - please install an Exult snapshot"
[12:37:24] <Dominus> :)
[12:37:41] <Dominus> seriously this would help a lot on the forum at times :)
[13:01:35] --- Dominus is now known as Dominus|away
[14:20:11] --> Marzo has joined #exult
[15:17:39] <wjp> Dominus|away: not a bad idea, no
[16:08:46] --- Sevalecpp is now known as Sevalec[4]pp
[16:12:43] <-- Marzo has left IRC (Read error: Operation timed out)
[16:21:26] <-- SiENcE has left IRC (Quit: @all: cya)
[16:27:50] <-- Colourless has left IRC (Ping timeout: 255 seconds)
[17:01:55] --> Marzo has joined #exult
[17:18:15] <Dominus|away> wjp, marzo, perhaps I can motivate one of you to do that (exult without ES, ctrl-alt-m messaging "ES is not supported - please install an Exult snapshot") :)
[17:18:30] <Dominus|away> just tell me what to do to motivate you... :)
[17:18:43] --> SiENcE has joined #exult
[17:34:46] <Marzo> Dominus|away: how is this for an error message:
[17:34:47] <Marzo> Exult Studio is unsupported in this version.
[17:35:01] <Marzo> Please install a snapshot if you want this functionality.
[17:35:30] <Marzo> (for Linux, maybe have it prompt for self-compile)
[17:43:13] <Dominus|away> this sounds good, for *nix maybe mention ./configure --help as well or something like that
[18:13:32] <Marzo> Dominus|away: it is in SVN
[19:31:39] <Dominus|away> thanks a lot
[19:34:50] --- Dominus|away is now known as Dominus
[19:55:00] <Dominus> marzo, on osx ot doesn't print that message, but there the key is ctrl-cmd-m...
[19:55:16] <Dominus> sorry forget it please
[19:55:21] <Dominus> I'm stupid and tired
[19:55:27] <Dominus> didn't update svn
[19:55:38] * Dominus is suddenly very red in his face...
[19:55:52] <Marzo> You also must compil with ES support disabled or the message will not show up
[19:56:34] <Dominus> yes, that's what I always do for the snapshots on OS X (since otherwise it is hard to do a static compile
[19:57:05] * Dominus is compiling again...
[19:57:28] <Marzo> I will BBL, you can leave messages in the log and I'll read them when I get back
[19:59:43] <Dominus> thanks again
[20:32:55] <Dominus> with actual SVN it works fine...
[20:39:42] <-- Rottingbeef has left IRC ()
[20:39:49] --> Rottingbeef has joined #exult
[20:50:21] <Dominus> to disable atl+KP+/KP- is it enough to delete these from the defaultkeys.txt files?
[20:51:44] <Dominus> since these do not play nice with the new render code and shouldn't be left for other s to play with :)
[20:51:48] <wjp> I think so
[20:52:53] <Dominus> searching for the strings makes it appear so, yes...
[20:53:29] * wjp did the same thing :-)
[20:53:57] <Dominus> well, then... I'll disable them for both games
[20:54:24] <Dominus> at least commenting them out
[20:56:34] * Dominus is also fixing Marzo's messed up changelog date :)
[20:56:49] <Marzo> Oops, I knew I forgot something
[20:56:58] <Dominus> :)
[20:57:22] <wjp> hm, the BG intro static doesn't fill the entire screen
[21:00:23] <wjp> also, do you mind if I remove "with help from the Exult team" ?
[21:00:28] <wjp> it bothers me :-)
[21:00:43] <Dominus> I don't mind
[21:00:46] <wjp> (I think the "driven by Exult" in the next screen is enough)
[21:02:16] <wjp> ah, fill_static is ignoring pitch
[21:02:17] * wjp fixes
[21:08:28] <wjp> it would help if this code were a bit more consistent though :-)
[21:14:16] <-- SiENcE has left IRC (Quit: cya @all)
[21:15:23] <wjp> whee, a commit :-)
[21:15:28] <wjp> *cough*
[21:18:37] <Dominus> good that I had just finished building my snapshot...
[21:28:29] <Dominus> when I return on sunday, I'll see about going through some of the bugs in the tracker again, to see which ones I can reproduce...
[21:28:38] <Dominus> but we should release anyway :)
[21:43:18] <Dominus> Looking at the intro again, I don't really like either shameless Exult plugs, "with help of..." and "driven by..."
[21:43:56] <Dominus> I'd rather get rid of the driven by, since we do not have this in the SI intro, so the "with the help of..." amkes more sense
[21:45:34] <wjp> I'll remove both then :-)
[21:45:48] <Dominus> :)
[21:46:51] <wjp> hm, the SI intro does use the 'driven by' string
[21:47:03] <wjp> at least in the code; let's see where...
[21:48:09] <wjp> near the end
[21:48:51] <Dominus> hmm, I didn't see it right now
[21:49:03] <wjp> me neither
[21:50:06] <wjp> is this supposed to be this ugly? http://www.usecode.org/misc/siintro1.png
[21:50:18] <wjp> (the "PART TWO")
[21:51:21] <Dominus> hmm, I think it looked better in SI without SS. Phew... need to watch the intro again now... already watched both SI/SS :)
[21:53:59] <Dominus> hmm, no, looks the same
[21:54:10] <wjp> (exult texts are gone now, but I left them in the data files to prevent upsetting things)
[21:54:48] <wjp> dosbox: http://www.usecode.org/misc/siintro2.png
[21:55:19] <Dominus> I'll take a look on dosbox <- what I wanted to do now... :) I guess I can skip this :)
[21:55:27] <Dominus> yes, loks much different
[21:58:34] <Dominus> wonder why that is...
[22:03:22] <wjp> it works ok if I rip out the rest of the intro
[22:03:28] <wjp> fun fun
[22:10:07] <wjp> uninitialized palette data...
[22:14:18] <wjp> and fixed
[22:15:16] <wjp> and now it's past my bed time :-)
[22:15:17] <wjp> good night
[22:15:19] <Dominus> hooray, great
[22:15:35] <Dominus> past mine, too, only compiling the snapshot and off to bed, too
[22:15:53] <Dominus> good night

[22:38:17] <Dominus> going to bed now, too. And will be gone until sunday.
[22:40:00] <Dominus> Marzo, could you implement the autonotes.txt files? But it's not that important, only nice to have and I'm feeling bad already about always asking you three (wjp, colourless and you) to do what I think would be nice.
[22:40:09] <Dominus> good night everyone :)
