[02:22:25] <sbx> hi Baastuul
[02:23:10] <Baastuul> Hey, sbx.
[02:23:12] <Baastuul> How's it going?
[02:24:09] <sbx> eating cheese spread
[02:24:17] <sbx> Are you playing Beyond Divinity yet?
[02:24:34] <Baastuul> Yeah. Something weird is happening, though.
[02:24:41] <Baastuul> Every other time I try to enter it, it crashes me back to the desktop.
[02:24:49] <Baastuul> I have to keep on resetting the configuration.
[02:25:11] <Baastuul> I'm 24% done downloading the v1.45 patch, though, so hopefully that'll fix whatever is the matter with it.
[02:26:01] <sbx> I had to do a websearch to figure out why Fallout2 was so slow when I first installed it, and figure out how to fix it.
[02:26:10] <sbx> How do you like it?
[02:27:12] <Baastuul> It's not bad. To be honest, I like Divine Divinity more (at least from the first glance) because it had a much more pretty game world.
[02:27:19] <Baastuul> Beyond Divinity is all boring, dark, and dismal.
[02:27:23] <Baastuul> It's one gigantic dungeon crawl.
[02:27:40] <Baastuul> But I haven't even gotten beyond Act I, so I really shouldn't be saying too much.
[02:28:08] <servus> Dark, dismal dungeon crawl! *Checks it out*
[02:28:29] <Baastuul> Hehehe, your type of game? :)
[02:28:31] <servus> Oh, isometric.
[02:28:45] <Baastuul> Yeah, it's isometric.
[02:28:49] <servus> You got me excited about an Ultima Underworld-type of game.
[02:28:52] <Baastuul> You can zoom in and out of your character, though.
[02:29:05] <Baastuul> You don't like isometric dungeon crawls?
[02:29:08] <servus> Wow, the perspective is *really* messed up
[02:29:24] <servus> Baastuul, I liked the games that used the Veil of Darkness engine
[02:29:29] <servus> Can't remember them...
[02:29:42] <Baastuul> Beyond Divinity's perspective isn't bad.
[02:29:48] <servus> "The Summoning"
[02:29:50] <Baastuul> What's the Veil of Darkness engine? It sounds familiar.
[02:29:53] <sbx> It makes me think of D&D arcade games
[02:29:56] <servus> The screenshots I saw showed a sheared perspective.
[02:30:38] <servus> Eek, Moby only has cutscene screenshots
[02:30:48] <servus> http://mobygames.com/game/shots/p,2/gameId,800/gameShotId,61126/
[02:31:02] <sbx> I like vast expansive worlds to explore too. For that reason I liked Exile2 better than Exile1.
[02:31:19] <sbx> Well Exile had a vast world but you always feel trapped.
[02:31:31] <sbx> Which was the point.
[02:31:47] <servus> I'm working on an extremely detailed Ultima Underworld 1 level 1 remake :-D
[02:31:51] * servus is excited
[02:32:00] <Baastuul> Haha cool
[02:32:11] <sbx> Why? Better graphics? More 3D freedom?
[02:32:20] <sbx> I thought Telemachos was doing that.
[02:32:20] <Baastuul> I could never get any of the Ultima Underworlds to run on my systems. My brother did at some point, though.
[02:32:30] <sbx> Ohh.
[02:32:33] <sbx> Didn't think about that.
[02:32:52] <servus> sbx, I'm using my own engine
[02:33:15] <servus> I already drew all the textures, and I made an engine, now I'm making an expansive sample map.
[02:34:13] <sbx> What's Telemachos doing?
[02:34:24] <servus> Haven't seen him in a blue moon
[02:35:11] <sbx> Me neither. Though I don't use the same forums he did.
[02:36:30] <servus> Well, I'm gonna continue mapping. I've almost got QuArK all figured out.
[02:38:28] <sbx> You can use it for this?
[02:38:52] <servus> Sure. It outputs plain-text map files
[02:39:16] <servus> I started using Worldcraft, but that doesn't support bezier patches
[02:40:10] <servus> The engine, though it now supports curved surfaces.
[02:40:21] <servus> Anyways, I think I've got the Underworld-ish feel down.
[02:43:32] <sbx> what is the light source?
[02:44:15] <servus> It's in the fireplace.
[02:44:50] <servus> Well, just a little bit in front of it.
[02:44:55] <servus> See the white blob?
[02:45:54] <sbx> yeh
[02:46:07] <sbx> That's a lot better than the original, isn't it? I never played.
[02:49:42] <servus> Never played?! :O! Well, the original graphics still hold up, in my opinion
[02:50:28] <servus> QuArK patch editing is a pain...
[02:54:47] <sbx> Anyone know of Shigesato Itoi?
[03:33:47] <sbx> I'm wondering if the famous copywriter is the same person that worked on the SNES RPG Earthbound.
[03:48:22] <sbx> cya
