[00:22:59] --> Kirben has joined #exult
[00:22:59] --- ChanServ gives channel operator status to Kirben
[01:26:49] <Sir_Fawnpug> pupnik, I lost boyden's head behind the machine at one point; had to get the hack mover and fetch it
[01:27:26] <pupnik> heh
[01:27:38] --> Marzo has joined #exult
[01:27:44] <pupnik> i haven't *really* gotten into it yet
[01:27:56] <pupnik> just some poking about in paws, and making bread in britain
[01:28:31] * Marzo looks at the log to understand what is going on
[01:33:54] <pupnik> Fawnpug is somewhere farther in the game, i am guessing
[02:27:34] <Sir_Fawnpug> pupnik, I'm playing serpent isle
[02:30:54] <-- Baastuul has left IRC (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
[02:52:22] <pupnik> I still have to find a good way to make exult a little easier to control
[02:52:25] <pupnik> or someone else :)
[02:52:32] <pupnik> on the tiny tablet
[03:02:39] --- Marzo is now known as Marzo_away
[03:07:12] --- Marzo_away is now known as Marzo
[03:11:16] --- servus_ is now known as servus
[03:17:21] <Kirben> Strange, when I kill guards in Exult, I'm seeing carpet parts in some of their dead bodies.
[03:17:41] <Marzo> ?
[03:18:00] <Marzo> Contained by them or in the ground?
[03:18:40] <Kirben> Contained by them, see http://members.optusnet.com.au/wormmon/dead.png
[03:20:49] <pupnik> new bug?
[03:21:09] <Marzo> Indeed
[03:21:36] <Marzo> I also noticed that party members no longer switch to new targets when their targets are killed
[03:21:52] <pupnik> hmmmmmm
[03:21:53] <Marzo> That one is new too
[03:22:18] <pupnik> exult is one of my favorites
[03:22:49] <Marzo> Because we have such cool bugs? :-p
[03:27:21] <Kirben> Casting a Death Vortex seems to crash Exult now too.
[03:36:48] <Marzo> (building a clean, completely unoptimized executable with full debug information to test with GDB)
[03:39:16] <Kirben> Maybe corruption with containers somewhere? seeing really odd items in dead bodies, or even when just pick pocketing.
[03:39:42] <Marzo> I am thinking that I somehow broke inventory generation
[03:40:03] <Marzo> ES seems to read inventory records correctly, so it seems restricted to Exult
[03:40:09] <Marzo> (meaning it is not file loading)
[03:47:31] <Kirben> Stranger, if I steal the lightning bolt from Lord British, look likes he is blowing himself up, when he uses it in combat.
[03:49:49] <Marzo> I am not sure I understood
[03:50:10] <Marzo> You mean LB blows up when using a weapon?
[03:50:24] <Marzo> Or that the lightning bolt causes him to explode?
[03:55:12] <Kirben> If I give it to the Avatar, it looks more like the Avatar is using it on himself, in close range combat.
[03:55:40] <Marzo> Got it
[04:02:46] <Marzo> Already found a bug in inventory generation
[04:02:59] <Marzo> (may or may not be the one creating carpets)
[04:07:28] <Marzo> ack
[04:07:35] <Marzo> int ammo = winfo ? winfo->get_ammo_consumed() : 0;
[04:07:44] <Marzo> if (ammo >= 0) // Weapon requires ammo.
[04:07:55] <Marzo> There lies the problem
[04:14:37] <Kirben> Reverting that last line seems to fix the inventory issues.
[04:15:06] <Marzo> The 'int ammo' line should end in '-1;', not '0;'
[04:15:33] <Kirben> ok
[04:15:39] <Marzo> Also, monster_food in Shape_info should be initialized to -1 (it is not being initialized now)
[04:16:58] <Marzo> Next up is death vortex (as soon as the recompilation with proper initialization is done)
[04:29:53] <Marzo> Well, the crash with death vortex has been dealt with but the death vortex itself is broken
[04:31:02] <Kirben> A broken spell, is sure better than crash though.
[04:31:12] <Marzo> Yep
[04:33:38] <Kirben> With Lightning Bolt again, Lord British doesn't seem to actually use it in combat. Although the Avatar does, if I pick pocket it.
[04:34:11] <Marzo> If you remove all other spells for LB (use non-paperdoll mode), does he use them?
[04:36:19] <Kirben> What other spells? I only see the scroll and Lightning Bolt when pick pocketing Lord British.
[04:36:54] <Kirben> Exult Studio has Lord British marked as No Magic too.
[04:39:04] <Marzo> I forgot, he has the neverending exploding lightning bolt
[04:39:11] <Marzo> He doesn't need other spells
[04:39:20] <Marzo> The no magic bit is odd
[04:40:00] <Marzo> At least in Ubuntu, the lightning bolt works at a distance
[04:40:13] <Marzo> Can you fire it over long distances?
[04:40:36] <Marzo> (maybe the issue is that characters don't walk away in Exult when they are using long range weapons)
[04:42:34] <Kirben> Yes, the Avatar can use the Lightning Bolt over long range but not LB, LB always seems to run over to the Avatar when attacked.
[04:42:50] <Marzo> Odd
[04:43:09] <Marzo> The combat initialization may not be checking line of fire very well
[04:43:23] <Kirben> In original Ultima7, LB always starts using the Lightning Bolt from long range.
[04:43:24] <Marzo> In any case, I am off to bed
[04:43:32] <Marzo> (having trouble keeping eyes open)
[04:43:32] <Kirben> ok
[04:43:52] <Marzo> I will deal with this in the morning
[04:43:55] <Marzo> Good night
[04:44:04] <Kirben> Good Night.

[06:33:13] <Sevalecan> this channel appears to be growing

[06:33:40] <Baastuul> Progress will not be impeded!
[06:33:49] <Baastuul> That was a very passive sentence.
