[04:18:58] <ShadwChsr> hi
[04:55:33] --> MeatShield has joined #exult
[05:00:25] --> Servus has joined #exult
[05:03:21] * Servus tromps around all the rooms, looking for a pulse.
[05:06:10] <MeatShield> ha
[05:06:19] <MeatShield> they never talk....
[05:06:27] <Servus> yeah
[05:06:29] <Servus> how boring
[05:06:37] <MeatShield> you'd have to physical kick them or something.. they're probbly watching tv..
[05:06:43] <Servus> coren at least does something to update his idle time
[05:07:00] <MeatShield> i'm reading an article about ddr generation @
[05:07:08] <MeatShield> drat.. 2 i mean
[05:07:20] <Servus> i have DDR 2700 and it's a lot faster than my brain can think... so it's good enough for me
[05:07:27] <Servus> how often do people actually work on the underworld remakes?
[05:08:00] <Servus> i made an underworld 1 + 2 remake, and started an ultima 7 remake ages ago... but id be interested in joining the projects... but these people only seem to feign promptness;)
[05:08:11] <MeatShield> i see nothing, i hear nothing, i know nothing....
[05:08:13] <MeatShield> :D
[05:08:30] * Servus dies
[05:08:36] <MeatShield> :[
[05:08:53] * Servus cant see you frown, because he is dead.
[05:08:56] <MeatShield> exultbot: heal
[05:09:03] <Servus> vas in mani?
[05:09:05] <MeatShield> wherre LB when ya need 'em
[05:09:27] <Servus> i just finished UW2 again and all lord brit knows how to talk about is nannys
[05:09:34] <Servus> nanny this, nanny that
[05:09:53] <MeatShield> i rathe rliked the ultima4 magic.. you had to mix the reagents and type that damn nore rune script
[05:10:06] <Servus> ultima 8 and 9 had the most interesting magic
[05:10:10] <MeatShield> i soo sucked
[05:10:13] <Servus> though underworld had a very nice system as well
[05:10:14] <MeatShield> really
[05:10:16] <MeatShield> never played
[05:10:20] <Servus> yep
[05:10:24] <MeatShield> i stoped at u7:bg
[05:10:38] <Servus> ultima 8 had 4 distinct different types of magic... and u7:si is way better than BG
[05:11:00] <MeatShield> i've owned si for 2 years now in the ultima collection..
[05:11:03] <MeatShield> never played
[05:11:14] <Servus> one of the U8 magic styles, pyromancy, had you put red and black candles around a pentagram in a certain order, different reagants at different candles, and say certain words to charge up a magic item
[05:11:19] <MeatShield> i played u4... as i've ..already said.. :? :)
[05:11:29] <MeatShield> oooh
[05:11:32] <Servus> so... it was interesting enough
[05:11:33] <MeatShield> complicate
[05:11:36] <Servus> ja
[05:11:43] <Servus> i think i remember ultima9 having a similar system to that
[05:12:26] <Servus> at least someone spoke though... i felt like a stalker going to all these rooms and being there myself
[05:12:52] <MeatShield> heh
[05:13:10] <MeatShield> i think most people here are europe/austraulia
[05:13:28] <Servus> i can trace and find out :-/
[05:13:42] <Servus> coren is canadian i see...
[05:13:44] <MeatShield> i just read the exult credits... :D
[05:13:56] <Servus> i know he's the team leader for the underworld 2 remake, so im trying to get in touch with him:P
[05:14:07] <Servus> that, or i'll just start from scratch, myself
[05:14:19] <MeatShield> send an ICMP:WakeUp
[05:14:49] <MeatShield> reverse engineer a game by yourself from scratch.. your mad
[05:16:03] <ShadwChsr> :)
[05:16:22] <Servus> why?
[05:16:29] <Servus> i already did it in 1995
[05:16:35] <Servus> qbasic with inline assembly:>
[05:16:47] <MeatShield> *blink* *pause*
[05:17:22] <MeatShield> ok..
[05:17:28] <MeatShield> yup
[05:17:45] <Servus> qbasic didnt have inline assembly, so you use an external assembler to make a "naked" function, and then you just copy and paste it into qbasic and use it as a data segment
[05:17:48] <Servus> or something... :)
[05:17:53] * MeatShield would incroduce the "C" language
[05:18:04] <Servus> well this was back in the day!
[05:18:31] <MeatShield> if you say so...
[05:18:33] <MeatShield> :)
[05:18:37] <Servus> cries
[05:18:56] <MeatShield> vb + asm = ...Why?!
[05:18:59] <Servus> not vb
[05:19:05] <Servus> qb.. this was before windows 95 took off
[05:19:19] <MeatShield> my bad.. its still basic at some level
[05:19:23] <Servus> *shrugs*
[05:19:37] <Servus> doesnt matter, i do opengl/direct3d now:P
[05:19:39] <Servus> in c++
[05:20:00] <MeatShield> i umm... java
[05:20:06] <Servus> i made ultima7 in direct3d
[05:20:08] <Servus> it was cool:)
[05:20:19] <Servus> did you know that the ultima7 map has FULL 3d values for EVERY object?
[05:20:27] <MeatShield> nope...
[05:20:30] <Servus> i was able to make completely correct 3d buildings from the 2d data =-O
[05:21:17] <MeatShield> hrm
[05:21:21] <MeatShield> was it pretty
[05:21:22] <Servus> of course the 3d buildings were bright pink because i didnt have a texture and slowly rendered because i was just starting direct3d at the time... :)
[05:21:38] <Servus> but yes i thought it was pretty... much in the way the Elephant Man's mother loved her son though:>
[05:22:00] <MeatShield> i though she abandoned him when he was a young child....
[05:22:09] <Servus> then the metaphor fits
[05:22:30] <ShadwChsr> LOL
[05:22:37] <MeatShield> why noty use the 2d textues as a start point for the
[05:22:50] <MeatShield> 3d paper mache
[05:22:53] <Servus> :P
[05:23:01] <Servus> there were no 2d textures for the buildings
[05:23:11] <Servus> they were just drawn as chunks with perspective already built in
[05:23:13] <ShadwChsr> I think 3d ultima 7, even if it was just a gimmic, would be cool (just a map viewer)
[05:23:16] <Servus> it'd look mighty funky
[05:23:27] <Servus> well i can send you my alphas if you really want:P
[05:23:39] <MeatShield> ok!
[05:23:40] <ShadwChsr> You could take each ultima 7 piece of game art and determine the average color, and use that for the object color :)
[05:23:46] <Servus> though its slow as a wet turd sliding down a dry rock and only worked on a single superchunk of serpent isle
[05:24:00] <Servus> lemme see if i can find the correct version with the 3d objects
[05:24:31] <Servus> i took out the walls about 1/3 through my development and havent reinstated them, so it should be a reallll old copy, just a sec
[05:25:29] <Servus> do you have ultima 7 installed?
[05:25:36] <MeatShield> yup
[05:25:51] <Servus> ok lemme sift through 2 dozen backups:)
[05:26:25] <Servus> (why did i save backup versions that dont work)
[05:26:40] <MeatShield> you have screen shots?
[05:26:41] <ShadwChsr> in case your new code made it even worse ;)
[05:26:44] <ShadwChsr> (I do the same thing ;)
[05:27:17] <Servus> lemme see about screenshots, i dont think so
[05:30:51] <Servus> UO kills my computer
[05:31:13] <MeatShield> code backups... i never do that...
[05:31:33] <MeatShield> oh wait.. my code never gets large than 20 or 30 k. no need.. ha!
[05:31:45] <Servus> mines over a meg:|
[05:31:51] <Servus> (ick)(
[05:33:18] <MeatShield> in what language?
[05:33:41] <Servus> oh duh simple problem:)
[05:33:42] <Servus> c++
[05:33:45] <MeatShield> 1 meg of asm code = 1 line of vb code :)
[05:33:52] <Servus> i was trying to load a file that no longer existed:)
[05:34:04] <Servus> 1 line of asm code = several pages of C++
[05:34:07] <Servus> :P
[05:34:15] <Servus> depends what exactly you're talkinga bout
[05:34:32] <Servus> you can get into graphical mode and get a working mouse with a pretty mouse cursor in a dozen lines of asm
[05:35:35] <MeatShield> of os calls! ha
[05:35:55] <MeatShield> note i'm not realling laughing.. its just in my mind.. :)
[05:36:07] <ShadwChsr> You two program in C++?
[05:36:31] <MeatShield> i try.. i'm not very.. good...
[05:36:40] <MeatShield> i reach beyond my grasp
[05:37:03] <MeatShield> i can C, but not ernough xp to do any 'real' project
[05:37:23] <Servus> now i have to *make* that file i was missing
[05:37:33] <Servus> a big old friggin' set of 3000 .fix files:)
[05:38:16] <MeatShield> hmm..
[05:38:21] <MeatShield> of course
[05:38:22] <MeatShield> ..
[05:39:02] * Servus now creating 6000
[05:39:04] <Servus> data files
[05:39:12] <MeatShield> why?
[05:39:46] <Servus> to make this horridly designed program of mine work :)
[05:40:12] <MeatShield> its ok
[05:40:23] <MeatShield> i have to goto bed soon
[05:42:09] <Servus> almost done
[05:42:10] <Servus> :>
[05:42:14] <Servus> i swear:P
[05:43:25] <MeatShield> ko
[05:43:49] <Coren_> "Feing" promptness?
[05:43:53] * Coren_ is back
[05:44:06] <Servus> feigning
[05:44:13] <MeatShield> i'll believe that when i see it
[05:44:15] <Coren_> Yes, I know what it means.
[05:44:26] <Servus> lousy VC++
[05:44:37] <Servus> dying on me here:(
[05:44:53] <MeatShield> try LCC
[05:44:56] <MeatShield> :)
[05:45:37] <Coren_> I was simply wondering what I could have (not) done to deserve such an insulting tag.
[05:45:49] <Servus> eek
[05:46:02] <Servus> a bag of triangles exploded!
[05:46:11] <Servus> sorry coren, i rescind my comment - i was terribly bored
[05:46:36] <Coren_> <Servus> i made an underworld 1 + 2 remake, and started an ultima 7 remake ages ago... but id be interested in joining the projects... but these people
[05:46:36] <Coren_> only seem to feign promptness;)
[05:46:43] <Coren_> Ah.
[05:46:49] * Coren_ smirks.
[05:47:19] <Coren_> *You* try to fit full time coding of a hobby project inbetween your job and your thesis for a while. :-)
[05:47:24] <MeatShield> only evil prople smirk
[05:47:33] <Servus> i should really comment my code... everything i do looks so terrible a week later
[05:47:40] <Coren_> Frankly, I'm amazed I manage to do it some of the time. :-)
[05:47:43] <Servus> i do, coren... i go to school and work fulltime
[05:47:53] <Coren_> MeatShield: Yes, exactly.
[05:47:56] <Servus> what about gloating?
[05:47:57] <MeatShield> whats your thesis in?
[05:48:16] <Coren_> CS; new idioms in human-computer interfaces.
[05:48:46] --> kuran has joined #exult
[05:48:50] <MeatShield> "heloo computer"
[05:48:56] <MeatShield> "computer"
[05:49:36] <Servus> hmm... this *should* work right now, but my 3d building is more like a big mess of triangles:(
[05:49:40] <Servus> blue triangles, at that
[05:49:51] <Coren_> At any rate, you express interest in joining "one of the projects" yet I don't remember reading an email from you. That would have been a logical first step, methinks.
[05:50:17] <Servus> scary blue crashing triangles... Blue Triangle Of Death...!
[05:50:19] <Servus> coren check your mail:P
[05:50:50] <Servus> looks at meatshield... "Hello Hal"
[05:50:55] <Coren_> Heh. Sent <2h ago.
[05:51:05] <Servus> details
[05:51:09] <MeatShield> Dave...
[05:51:13] <-- kuran has left IRC (Client Quit)
[05:51:24] <Servus> My instructor in Kansas taught me a song, Dave... Would you like to hear it?
[05:52:19] <Coren_> Servus: I'd need more help with modeling than coding, truth be told. If you know your way around a modeler, that's how you could be most useful. Them billboard standins for objects are getting old (and look silly)
[05:52:43] <Servus> ive done several dozen original models and skins for half-life
[05:53:20] <MeatShield> night
[05:53:23] <-- MeatShield has left IRC ("ChatZilla 0.8.11 [Mozilla rv:1.2.1/20021130]")
[05:53:26] <ShadwChsr> modelers are RARE.. even rarer than 2d artists :)
[05:53:37] <Servus> http://www.geocities.com/russell_figowitz/images/NPC07.jpg
[05:53:46] <Coren_> Servus: how good are you with still lifes? I.e.: swords, meat-on-a-sticks, potions, etc?
[05:54:00] <Servus> i do paint, and i have a computer tablet for photoshop
[05:54:16] <Coren_> Sevrus: You used 3dsmax?
[05:54:23] <Servus> "I swear, if Mors Gotha requisitions just ONE MORE meat on a stick, I will shove..."
[05:54:25] <Servus> yes, 3dsmax
[05:54:35] <Servus> and photoshop
[05:55:36] <Coren_> Sevrus: Good. Email me models of the various objects you can find in-game as strike your fancy; in exchange you'll get fame and riches. Well, credit and a percentage of my profits. What's 10% of 0$ again?
[05:55:47] * Coren_ grins.
[05:56:12] <Servus> phone
[05:56:17] <Coren_> phone?
[05:56:22] <Servus> im on
[05:56:30] * Coren_ doesn't seem to recall a phone in UW2. :-)
[05:56:44] <Servus> im on the phone
[05:56:50] <ShadwChsr> Hello? Guardian? Please let the castle out of the blackrock... thanks
[05:57:21] <Coren_> " beat you to it by doing a 1994 remake in QBasic -- with inline assembly!" Completed?
[05:57:53] <ShadwChsr> QBasic ewww evil word
[05:58:03] <ShadwChsr> now with new and improved "goto"!
[05:58:30] * Coren_ raises an eyebrow. "It was better than that visual basic crap. At least it didn't try to pretend to be a real language."
[05:58:37] <Servus> i hate phones
[05:58:40] <Servus> uh oh gf is crying
[06:00:02] <Coren_> Hm, well, course in 7.5h, and no sleep yet.
[06:00:07] * Coren_ wavies.
[06:00:10] <Servus> bye
[06:00:16] * Coren_ is away: sleep
[06:03:09] <Servus> you here?
[06:11:26] <ShadwChsr> A bunch of ex-originites did this: http://www.dransik.com/
[06:11:33] <ShadwChsr> most from the u8 team
[06:12:42] <Servus> she just talks and talks
[06:12:51] <ShadwChsr> :)
[06:12:58] <Servus> and talks
[06:13:23] <Servus> then she talks
[06:13:28] <Servus> but then, THEN
[06:13:32] <Servus> then she cries a little, and then she talks
[06:15:30] <-- Kirben has left IRC (capek.freenode.net irc.freenode.net)
[06:16:14] --> Kirben has joined #exult
[06:16:27] <Servus> arghhh
[06:16:34] <Servus> figured out my problem!
[06:16:40] <Servus> it was the same problem as before:P
[06:20:40] --> kuran has joined #exult
[06:21:12] <-- Kirben has left IRC (capek.freenode.net irc.freenode.net)
[06:21:53] --> Kirben has joined #exult
[06:26:39] <-- DarkeZzz has left IRC (capek.freenode.net irc.freenode.net)
[06:30:24] --> DarkeZzz has joined #exult
[06:35:14] <-- Coren_ has left IRC ("using sirc version 2.211+KSIRC/1.2.1")
[06:50:15] --- DarkeZzz is now known as Darke
[06:53:28] <ShadwChsr> darke has awoken *trumpets sound*
[06:54:08] <Servus> =-O
[06:54:10] <Servus> *whack*
[06:54:34] <ShadwChsr> ;p
[06:54:48] <Servus> finally got off the phone with my gf, egads
[06:55:22] <ShadwChsr> :)
[06:59:04] * Darke bows in a sweeping, granddose manner, "Yes, I have arisen again!"
[07:00:53] <Servus> (it was a slow rising)
[07:01:11] --- ChanServ gives channel operator status to Darke
[07:03:04] * Darke is just juggling with two irc servers, both wanting nick authentication, and three channels simultaneously saying 'hi', whilst his email is prompting him for password after password. Slow arising is to be expected. *grin*
[07:04:06] * Darke is also boggling at a Christian Boardgame called "City of Bondage" for ages 8 and up too. Today 'started' on a most surreal note.
[07:04:40] <Servus> by surreal note, i assume you mean a plastic red gag ball
[07:06:07] <Darke> No, that would just be a friendly awakening. I'm more thinking getting msged this url: http://www.cactusgamedesign.com/board_games_city_of_bondage.htm
[07:06:34] <Servus> i'd give you more but i'd offend you i'm sure :)
[07:07:28] --> Cinni has joined #exult
[07:09:53] * Darke considers his answer options and concludes the most tactful answer is, "Unlikely."
[07:11:18] <Servus> then try http://www.divine-interventions.com
[07:11:32] * Darke quickly diverts the topic back to exult related stuff. *grin*
[07:13:11] <Servus> oh, i'm sure there will be a real flood of conversation now;)
[07:14:09] * Darke grumps as the flash intro refuses to load under konqueror, then blinkies as he finally sees the next screen that doesn't do anything under mozilla.
[07:14:43] * Darke pushes things towards 'code' rather then err... off topic stuff. *grin*
[07:15:34] <Cinni> It'th terribw habing a code. Ethpethially when your node geth aww thtubbed ub.
[07:16:16] * Darke glares at Cinni.
[07:16:34] <Servus> you have one of those tropical finger-colds?
[07:16:46] * Cinni looks perfectly innocent, and suggest drinking lots of fluids and eating plenty of fruit. Soup helps too.
[07:17:29] <Cinni> Not at the moment. Why do you ask?
[07:17:53] <Cinni> Although Darke will likely tell you I'm the typo queen of the western hemisphere.
[07:19:09] * Darke suspects he's somehow acquired the 'typo king' crown off Colourless after the accident the other night. *sigh*
[07:20:07] <Cinni> You know, 'Typo king' scans to 'Waffle King'.
[07:21:35] * Darke snerks and disappears for a few minutes to kick X/KDE a bit more.
[07:21:40] <-- Darke has left IRC ("*fluff*")
[07:21:55] <Servus> indeed
[07:22:15] <Cinni> Nice song, that.
[07:22:27] <Servus> (the most severe of nosecolds don't normally makthhh thou typeth liketh this)
[07:22:43] <Servus> wait a second... lord british isnt medieval, he HAS A HEAD COLD! what with those thou's and thee's
[07:24:58] <Cinni> You might be on to something.
[07:26:04] <Servus> thou art correcteth
[07:26:16] <Servus> *snuffle*
[07:26:48] <Cinni> Maybe you ought to slip the occasional sneeze into his dialogue.
[07:28:17] <Servus> the first magic spell was discovered during a sneeze you know
[07:28:32] <Servus> he said... ah-ah-ahhhhhh-vas corp por
[07:28:34] <Servus> well maybe not
[07:28:47] <Cinni> Really? I would think that sneezing while casting would be likely to blow one's arms off.
[07:30:22] <Servus> that's why one must blow their <i>nose</i> first
[07:30:26] <Servus> =-/
[07:30:54] * Cinni ponders the spell Magnify Sneeze. Great for knocking down straw houses.
[07:31:24] --> Darke has joined #exult
[07:31:24] --- ChanServ gives channel operator status to Darke
[07:32:22] <Servus> Vas Nox Hur?
[07:32:33] * Darke grumps some more at KDE.
[07:33:22] <Cinni> Kraft Dinner Extreme? Now I've heard everything...
[07:33:42] <Servus> it's Extreme
[07:34:09] <Servus> it used to be "I got the blues", now, with Kraft Dinner Extreme, it's "I got the blues, bitch!"
[07:35:03] <Cinni> The word 'extreme' is being overused.
[07:35:28] <Servus> extremely so
[07:35:35] <Darke> NOW, MORE THEN EVER!
[07:35:46] <Servus> stop being extreme
[07:35:48] <Darke> http://www.lssu.edu/banished/current/default.html *innocentlook*
[07:36:22] <Cinni> And why don't grocery stores carry cup-o-haggis?
[07:36:48] <Servus> copyright issues with dropkick murphy
[07:37:00] <Cinni> Awww...
[07:53:49] <Servus> So...bored...
[07:55:15] * Darke dangles a kitty toy in front of Servus.
[07:55:21] <Cinni> I suggest a nice round of paper-rock-scissors-spock-lizard.
[07:58:19] <Servus> what do spock and lizard do
[07:59:50] <ShadwChsr> I think scissors beats a lizard but im not sure
[08:00:03] <Cinni> Spock is disproved by paper and poisoned by lizard, but he can smash scissors and vaporise rock. Lizard eats paper, gets squashed by rock and decapitated by scissors.
[08:01:28] <Servus> indeed
[08:01:38] <Servus> i just like to play paper-cardboard
[08:01:42] <Servus> that way, everyone wins! yayyyyyyyyyyyyyyy!
[08:02:00] * Cinni earflicks, and licks her paws.
[08:03:13] <Servus> are you a Yiffy?
[08:03:29] * Cinni blushes. "I hardly know you..."
[08:03:51] <Servus> eek!
[08:04:04] * Cinni blinkies.
[08:04:11] <Servus> :P
[08:06:51] * Cinni sticks her tongue out at Servus.
[08:06:59] <Servus> only if you intend to use it
[08:07:17] <Cinni> Eep. And people call me a perv...
[08:07:32] <Servus> indeed
[08:07:43] <Servus> sticking your tongue out at everyone, no wonder!
[08:08:42] * Cinni toasts a bagel. "To bagels!"
[08:09:03] <Servus> sounds good
[08:09:11] <Servus> bet youre gonna stick your tongue through it. gross
[08:09:33] <Cinni> You know, a long and prehenside tongue would be useful.
[08:12:43] <Servus> for swinging off branches and such
[08:13:39] <Cinni> I was thinking eating yogurt withoiut a spoon.
[08:14:09] <Servus> you dont need a long tongue for that
[08:14:44] <Cinni> Depends if you want to eat it from a bottle or not.
[08:15:30] <Servus> that's gross
[08:15:48] <Servus> with a normal container of yogurt... turn the container upside down and use gravity... squeeze if necessary
[08:15:58] <Servus> presto
[08:15:58] <Cinni> Then you can't get it all.
[08:16:05] <Servus> turn it inside out
[08:17:21] <Cinni> That would involve cutting the plastic.
[08:17:58] <Servus> no it wouldnt
[08:18:06] <Servus> just use your avatarish strength
[08:18:17] <Cinni> IT'd break.
[08:20:40] <Servus> nah uh!
[08:21:32] <Servus> you must have some freakish containers wherever you live
[08:21:42] <Servus> in canada?
[08:22:02] * Cinni nods.
[08:22:25] <Servus> indeed
[08:22:26] <Servus> freakish
[08:22:29] <Cinni> Just simple plastic tubs, really. Too rigid to easily invert.
[08:23:39] * Cinni listens to The Mounted Animal Nature Trail. It's about taxidermy, before you pervs get any ideas.
[08:23:48] <Servus> ive done it without fear of breakage before
[08:23:51] <Servus> wow that sounds bad =-o
[08:24:09] <Servus> "you pervs..." it's just me!

[08:29:12] <Servus> thats mirc for you
[08:29:20] <Servus> the room has nothing to do with porn or pirated software
[08:34:24] * Cinni giggles.
[08:34:35] <Servus> =-/
[08:34:52] <Cinni> Any pirated pornographic software?
[08:36:56] <Servus> ultima te'orgasm
[08:37:11] <Darke> Not that I know of. Though people occasionally wander in here and ask for pirated copies of U7:Serpent Isle which has a pixelated sex scene or two in it. *grin*
[08:37:39] <Cinni> Oh. Pixelated.
[08:37:58] <Servus> i like those sex scenes
[08:38:06] <Servus> i played as a girl just for the lesbian sex scenes
[08:38:16] * Cinni grins.
[08:38:52] <Servus> did you work on exult or anything like that?
[08:38:54] <Servus> why are you here?
[08:39:16] <Cinni> Because I know Darke.
[08:39:44] * Darke looks innocent and denies any knowledge of Cinni!
[08:40:26] <Servus> indeed
[08:40:32] * Cinni grins.
[08:40:35] <Servus> asking to see each other's swords and scabbards im sure
[08:41:37] * Cinni prefers a large battleaxe to a sword.
[08:42:40] * Darke prefers ranged weapons himself.
[08:42:56] <Cinni> Like dwarves.
[08:45:47] <Darke> *Ranged* weapons, not *short* weapons.
[08:46:12] <Cinni> They put on heavy armour and load themselves sinto little catapults, and fling eachother at the enemy that way. They do impact damage first, then use their axes.
[08:46:12] <Servus> ranged weapons...
[08:46:22] <Servus> in all of underworld 1 and 2, there were about 20 arrows lying around :)
[08:46:37] <Servus> and it was a double entendre
[08:46:38] * Cinni snerks.
[08:47:45] <Servus> snerk
[08:48:54] * Cinni nodnods. A snerk is the sound of the reaction that gets pepsi up one's nose, except without the pepsi.
[08:49:39] <Servus> i tried sniffing coke once, but i kept getting ice cubes stuck up my nose
[08:50:14] <Cinni> That's old.
[08:50:24] <Servus> because i spread it years ago

[09:46:21] <Servus> lets go to jack in the box together
[09:46:32] * Darke is already eating something. *grin*

[09:50:21] <Cinni> Im my immediate area? It hardly matters, I prefer to cook for myself.
[09:54:17] <Servus> well i have roommates -- i cannot keep food in the refrigerator, because they are _inconsiderate_ roommates
[09:54:33] <Cinni> That is indeed a pain in the ass.
[09:54:52] <Servus> what is?
[09:54:53] <Servus> oh nm
[09:55:01] <Servus> thought you said "this is..."
[09:55:34] <Cinni> They use all the room in there, or they eat your stuff?
[09:55:42] <Servus> eat my stuff
[09:55:49] <Servus> i can clearly mark it as mine
[09:55:51] <Servus> it doesnt matter

[10:00:11] * Cinni looks.
[10:02:10] <Cinni> What am I looking for? The second looks more realistic, if only because it's impossible to get good lighting in these castles. :)
[10:06:24] <Servus> its a scene from underworld 2
[10:06:30] <Servus> the first is coren's, the second is mine
[10:08:04] --> kuran has joined #exult
[10:08:05] <Cinni> The first is somewhat utilitarien, it works but seems short on style. The second is a little too dark, but otherwise better, if you ask me.
[10:08:51] <Servus> its not really much darker at all
[10:08:54] <Servus> well it is darker
[10:09:03] <Servus> but not _dark_... if you made it fullscreen youd see it all clearly
[10:09:32] <Cinni> Possibly. It still sems a but dark for my tastes.
[10:09:51] <Servus> it is a simple matter to make lights brighter
[10:10:22] * Cinni nodnods.
[10:10:47] <Servus> nod nod nodding off?
[10:11:23] * Cinni shakes her head.

[10:19:48] <Servus> of course i have

[10:26:34] <Darke> Erm. No, I don't think so anyway. *grin*

[10:27:41] <Servus> isnt it bad luck?"
[10:27:54] <Cinni> Hardly your fault for mentioning it.
[10:28:28] <Servus> shrugs
[10:28:37] <Servus> i also told them i hope someone stabs them in the head
[10:29:46] <Cinni> Dare I ask why?
[10:30:37] <Servus> because i hope someone stabs them in the head
[10:30:40] <Servus> actually i didnt say that
[10:31:18] <Cinni> You're strange.

[10:33:22] <Servus> ok

[10:36:53] * Cinni nodnods. As a rule.
[10:38:02] <Servus> ok
[10:39:57] * Cinni wants a legion of the undead.
[10:40:05] <Servus> like bruce campbell?
[10:40:10] <Servus> or are you just a necrophiliac?
[10:40:56] <Cinni> Igh. I like my partners on the same side of the vitality scale as myself.
[10:41:10] <Servus> not even drugged and bound to your headboard?
[10:41:16] <Cinni> I just want them to help me take over the world.
[10:41:25] <Cinni> Why drug?
[10:41:25] <Servus> ok

[10:50:11] <Servus> so.. .hungry
[10:50:15] <Servus> is there anything healthy to eat at fast food?
[10:50:58] <Cinni> Depends on which place you go to.

[10:51:45] <Servus> and of course mcdonalds(ick)

[12:01:22] <wjp> they take over the solar system?
[12:02:26] <Darke> Isn't there some sort of 'radius of control' they slowly exert over the solar system, and you have to have defeated them before it extends over the earth? I remember them taking out some of the races spheres of influence, and you'd get a "help we're being destroyed" message from each if you've had contact with them.

[12:03:46] <wjp> I'm not sure if they implemented that; I think it's only supposed to happen if you're too late
