[01:51:06] * Darke bows to all.
[02:29:27] <matto> Darkee!
[02:33:11] * Darke replaces the extraneous 'e' with one of matto's trademark exclamation marks.
[03:02:05] * Darke hops over and paints MiniMe a nice bright shade of fluroescent pink.

[08:53:16] --> Soul|WTF has joined #exult
[09:59:00] --> Wumpus has joined #exult
[10:01:31] * Wumpus has a sackful of minor SI glitches, and I haven't even left monitor ;-p
[10:02:04] * Darke bows to the Wumpus, "Hi. <grin> Bad luck, or good luck?"
[10:02:45] <Wumpus> no luck involved, i don't think :)
[10:04:20] <Wumpus> oh hehe
[10:04:42] <Wumpus> someone fixed the hook crash i reported... didn't expect that
[10:06:11] <Wumpus> someone = jsf apparently :)
[10:06:34] <Darke> He does seem to hit the bug reports quickly. <grin>
[10:07:59] * Wumpus should race him :)
[10:08:31] <Wumpus> except there's probably only a finite number of reportable bugs, so ultimately he'd win :/ :-p
[10:34:01] <matto> Darke: I just want you to note that I am doing nothing to keep the spark thread alive

[10:41:14] --> Darke has joined #exult
[10:47:33] * Darke grins at matto, he knows.
[10:48:18] * Darke considers if matto was trying to keep Spark's Ass alive, he'd be doing it more sneakily.
[10:59:56] --> wjp has joined #exult
[10:59:56] --- ChanServ gives channel operator status to wjp
[11:00:01] <wjp> hi all
[11:00:21] * wjp wonders why MiniMe is bright pink
[11:00:25] <wjp> ;-)
[11:03:32] * Darke bows to wjp, and looks completely innocent.
[11:09:30] * Darke splashes a few drops of dark purple paint over MiniMe when no-one is looking.
[12:11:51] --> Colourless has joined #Exult
[12:11:51] --- ChanServ gives channel operator status to Colourless
[12:11:57] <wjp> hi
[12:12:01] <Colourless> hi
[12:12:14] <wjp> better watch out... Darke's got his paws on some paint again ;-)
[12:12:32] * wjp points at the bright-pink-with-some-dark-purple-spots MiniMe
[12:12:34] <Colourless> :-)
[12:13:18] <Colourless> well Darke hasn't been active for over an hour
[12:13:50] * Darke bows to Colourless.
[12:14:16] <-- Darke was kicked from #exult by Colourless (Pre-emptive)
[12:14:17] --> Darke has joined #exult
[12:14:55] * Colourless promises to stop doing that
[12:15:39] <Wumpus> some day ;-p
[12:15:47] <Wumpus> `lo colourless, wjp, darke
[12:16:09] <wjp> hi
[12:16:17] <Colourless> hi
[12:16:20] <Wumpus> would it be difficult to make "pause on opening inventory" etc an option? it sometimes is rather... irritating...
[12:16:22] <Wumpus> :P
[12:16:44] <wjp> moderately tricky, I guess
[12:17:08] <Wumpus> d'oh :(
[12:17:24] * Colourless thinks, without looking at the code, that it would probably only take a few hours work really
[12:17:39] <Wumpus> 'only' ;-p
[12:17:48] <wjp> yeah, 'only' indeed :-)
[12:17:52] * Wumpus knows it s been raised somewhere (forums?) recently, but i don't follow them closely, so hehe :P
[12:18:10] <Wumpus> few hours work + few days debugging? :P
[12:18:18] <wjp> :-)
[12:18:23] <Colourless> :-)
[12:19:09] <Wumpus> *shrug* the mechanism is obviously there to do pausing, thats why i thought it might be easy :) but oh well, i'll live :)
[12:19:58] <wjp> could you use the same pausing mechanism that's used when the window goes out of focus?
[12:20:15] <Colourless> wjp: yeah probably
[12:20:16] <Wumpus> oh, i was actually thinking of the game menu... :P
[12:21:32] <wjp> well, with modal gumps (like game menu) you also can't interact with the world anymore
[12:21:57] <Wumpus> ahh ofc
[12:22:07] <Wumpus> that *would* rather suck :P
[12:22:22] <Colourless> it's possible that we could make the modal gumps, unmodal, but that would be rather difficult
[12:24:08] * Wumpus hmms andn otes that standing around waiting for Lydia's poison to take effect is boring :P
[12:24:10] <Colourless> about pausing when any gump is up, but still allowing world interactions, the lose focus pausing system should in theory be able to be used.
[12:26:04] <Colourless> all it actually does is prevent time queued events from being activated
[12:26:13] <wjp> yeah
[12:26:29] <Wumpus> what *is* the origin of the term 'gumps' anyway... its a cool word :)
[12:26:54] <Colourless> In an interview warren spector was asked that question, and he didn't know :-)
[12:33:38] <Wumpus> hrmm
[12:33:52] <Wumpus> Lydia's poison is more painful than i remember it.. d'oh *hurries towards Fawn*
[12:43:56] <Wumpus> oh damn
[12:46:21] <Wumpus> oh yay, Delphynia is even in :)
[12:56:11] <-- MiniMe has left IRC (Ping timeout: 181 seconds)
[13:02:52] * Darke pouts at the loss of MiniMe.
[13:04:06] <Wumpus> hmm there *is* a lot of talking in SI isn't there... :P
[13:05:04] * Darke points out that there appears to be 500kb more talking usecode in SI then there is in BG. This could probably be a hint. <grin>
[13:07:03] <Wumpus> 500k? yikes
[13:07:07] <Wumpus> how much was there in BG?
[13:08:54] <Darke> Wumpus: My usecode file (english version) is about 1500kb for BG and 2100kb for SI.
[13:09:30] <Wumpus> but that's not all talking?
[13:09:30] <Colourless> S
[13:09:47] <Colourless> SI has many many more scripted sequences than BG ever did
[13:10:16] <Wumpus> what *is* the rationale behind being able to walk around happily on negative hit points?
[13:10:51] <Darke> Wumpus: It's so you don't need to wait around 'til your 'conscious' again, IIRC. <grin>
[13:11:04] <Colourless> that is, until you are back positive again
[13:11:14] <Wumpus> hrmm
[13:11:28] <Colourless> you think this is a bad idea/
[13:11:34] <Wumpus> its a bit dodgy though :| eg, for the poison... lets you keep going a lot longer than you should be able
[13:11:59] <Wumpus> "eg for the poison" -> you would normally die once you get to 0, since you'll be hurting faster than you heal
[13:11:59] <Darke> Ask Jeff, IIRC he mentioned on the forum it was partially a 'debugging' thing, and partially a convenience thing from his perspective.
[13:12:25] <Wumpus> and the "lets you keep going'... in general... I survived knights test (albeit with a few reloads) and have never done that before...
[13:12:29] <Wumpus> :P
[13:12:47] <Wumpus> *shrug* doesn't really bother me; I like my games easy from that sort of perspective :)
[13:13:07] <Colourless> you will probably find that you survived the knights test because exult's combat isn't exactly 100%
[13:13:22] <Wumpus> well yeah, that too ;-p
[13:14:00] <Colourless> plus evading traps in exult is just a little 'too' easy last time i checked
[13:14:16] <Darke> Hmm... 'ucxt -fl -a' produces a list of the number of bytes used in each section, maybe add another option to print out the the total number of bytes used in each section? A nice curiousity hack anyway. <grin>
[13:14:23] <Wumpus> it was very easy in the original too...
[13:14:27] <Wumpus> (from what i can remember)
[13:14:50] * Darke nods, with the exception of a few traps, it was rather easy in the original u7 (at least in BG).
[13:19:39] <Colourless> so, how many months late is "Max aka Moscow Dragon" with the 3D Ultima VII idea? I can strictly remember the topic comming up on here and on the forums many times before
[13:21:18] <Darke> No idea. IIRC his suggestion has been the most 'detailed' to date though. Most of the other have been like "Hey! Why don't you upgrade u7 to 3d?". <grin>
[13:21:45] <wjp> I can't really remember having heard that before
[13:23:19] <Darke> wjp: It wasn't a big thread from memory, just a couple of comments, one of which was more-or-less a 'well, start coding then' comment.
[13:25:56] <Wumpus> *blink*
[13:26:10] <Wumpus> "She has a very sharp knife" "And I know exactly where and how to use it"....
[13:26:10] <Colourless> I know we talked about it here on March 29th
[13:26:17] * Wumpus considers the where...
[13:26:27] <Wumpus> hrmm
[13:26:58] <Wumpus> am i supposed to still ahve the wolf body after getting the furrier to make my cloak?
[13:27:21] * Darke decides Wumpus is deliberatly corrupting his mind with that statement and question. <grin>
[13:27:35] <Colourless> no you're not
[13:27:37] <Wumpus> darke- hmm
[13:27:55] * Wumpus waves the wolf around by the tail
[13:27:58] <Wumpus> its right here :|
[13:30:12] <Darke> Wumpus: My first thought was wondering why you're pasting that text in here for. The second dredged up the text 'Lorena Bobbet', but I have no idea about the spelling. <grin>
[13:30:46] * Wumpus studiously does something else entirely
[13:34:03] <Wumpus> is there an armour/weapons guide in SI, like there was in BG?
[13:34:08] <Wumpus> ie relative effectiveness etc?
[13:34:56] <Colourless> not sure, but I don't think so.
[13:36:29] <Wumpus> is there any actual point in swamp boots?
[13:36:44] <Colourless> yeah there is
[13:37:10] <Colourless> around the edges of swamps there are tiles were you'll get poisoned. the swamp boots prevent it.
[13:37:25] <Wumpus> oh i see
[13:37:28] <Wumpus> bah
[13:37:33] <Wumpus> Vas An Nox after leaving :)
[13:37:46] <Colourless> they are more useful in exult than the originals because the party formation code in exult isn't as tight so your companions have this habbit of getting themselves poisoned
[13:38:16] <Colourless> s/habbit/habit
[13:38:35] <Wumpus> *shrug* i usually ended up getting a lot of people poisoned in the original too, through sloppiness ;-p
[13:38:39] * Darke notes another good thing about the new party formation code. <grin> Some may argue this is the only good thing.
[13:39:49] * Colourless thinks that poisoning in Ultima 7 doesn't compare to ultima 4 and 5 where if you got poisoned you were probably going to die if you didn't have any An Nox
[13:40:06] <Wumpus> *nod*
[13:40:11] <Wumpus> it is pretty weak
[13:41:48] <Wumpus> timne for a goblin hunt :)
[13:44:19] <Colourless> :-)
[13:49:38] --- Soul|WTF is now known as Soul|OMGHI
[13:49:43] <Soul|OMGHI> yes
[13:49:44] <Soul|OMGHI> herro
[13:50:54] * Darke blinkblinks and wonders if he's in the right parallel universe, you know the one where he can understand their variant of 'english'? <grin>
[13:53:10] <Soul|OMGHI> hmm
[13:53:17] <Soul|OMGHI> wtf minime timed out
[13:53:19] <Soul|OMGHI> damnit
[13:53:23] <Soul|OMGHI> that machine has been freezing lately
[13:53:25] <Soul|OMGHI> i wonder why
[13:53:51] <Colourless> it was probably openprojects fault.
[13:54:11] <Soul|OMGHI> that the comp is freezing?
[13:54:27] <Colourless> hmmm, no :-)
[13:54:32] * Darke ahhs... language making sense now. <grin>
[13:54:43] <Soul|OMGHI> what the hell
[13:54:48] <Soul|OMGHI> OH MY GOD
[13:54:49] <Soul|OMGHI> damnit
[13:54:49] <Soul|OMGHI> arrrgh
[13:55:18] <Soul|OMGHI> I said I love you and i swear I still do
[13:55:24] <Soul|OMGHI> nice catch
[13:58:43] --> MiniMe has joined #exult
[13:58:43] <MiniMe> *** Return
[14:05:43] <-- Darke has left IRC (herbert.openprojects.net irc.openprojects.net)
[14:06:10] --> Darke has joined #exult
[14:06:16] <Soul|OMGHI> HERRO
[14:06:45] <Soul|OMGHI> I SAID HERRO
[14:07:42] <Colourless> suddup
[14:07:49] <Soul|OMGHI> :
[14:07:51] <Soul|OMGHI> :(
[14:07:55] <Colourless> :-)
[14:08:14] <Soul|OMGHI> !8ball are my feelings crushed
[14:08:15] * MiniMe looks in the 8 Ball and the answer is... 3 ONLY RL FAGIT IS TEH KID
[14:08:39] <Soul|OMGHI> ok
[14:16:25] <Darke> !8ball Who is 'TEH KID'?
[14:16:25] * MiniMe looks in the 8 Ball and the answer is... 3 LANDO IS MANEE FAGIT
[14:16:43] * Darke wonders who this 'Lando' person is.
[14:17:08] * Wumpus hmms... I don't suppose anyone knows if antique armour is any good? :P
[14:17:40] * wjp thinks the 8 ball has a severe mental disorder
[14:19:50] * Darke thinks the 8ball is cool.
[14:44:29] <-- Wumpus has left IRC ("zzz")
[15:20:30] <Soul|OMGHI> hmmmm
[15:21:09] <Darke> hmmmm?
[15:21:14] <Soul|OMGHI> Hmmm.
[15:21:23] <Darke> Hmm!
[15:21:23] <wjp> hmmhmm
[15:21:23] <Soul|OMGHI> 640mb RAM isn't enough
[15:21:44] <Colourless> too true
[15:21:44] <wjp> what for? XP? :-)
[15:21:51] <Darke> Soul|OMGHI: 768 is if you've filled all the slots on your mobo. <grin>
[15:21:55] <Colourless> you can never have enough
[15:22:05] <Soul|OMGHI> yes, never enough
[15:22:05] <wjp> nah, you can go up to 1536
[15:22:20] <Soul|OMGHI> danmit
[15:22:22] <Soul|OMGHI> damnit
[15:22:23] --> sbx has joined #exult
[15:22:29] <Soul|OMGHI> why isn't XP letting me change my sound card's IRQ
[15:23:03] <Colourless> ACPI
[15:23:08] <Colourless> probably
[15:23:13] <Soul|OMGHI> i have it disabled
[15:23:42] <Soul|OMGHI> i'm even forcing the IRQ to that pci slot in bios
[15:31:24] <sbx> hi
[15:31:26] <Soul|OMGHI> hmmm wait a sec
[15:31:28] <sbx> what means U7 Spanish Bug?
[15:31:29] <Soul|OMGHI> maybe i have a solution
[15:32:57] <sbx> "U7 Spanish Bug" makes more sense than "oh yeah..." but that is not saying much
[15:33:17] <Soul|OMGHI> HA
[15:33:24] <Soul|OMGHI> ok got it to pick 10 instead of 11
[15:33:29] <Soul|OMGHI> btu wtf i want it to use 7
[15:33:53] <sbx> OMG HI Soul!
[15:34:00] <Soul|OMGHI> heil
[15:34:47] <Soul|OMGHI> before it was using irq 11
[15:34:50] <Soul|OMGHI> and it refused to do anything else
[15:34:59] <Soul|OMGHI> so i used bios to say that IRQ 11 was invalid and unusable :(
[15:35:25] <sbx> !8ball What is the average IQ of people who post on the Exult forum?
[15:35:25] * MiniMe looks in the 8 Ball and the answer is... 3 ME > U
[15:35:34] <Soul|OMGHI> Indeed.
[15:36:22] <sbx> !8ball What is my IQ?
[15:36:22] * MiniMe looks in the 8 Ball and the answer is... 3 PLZ DIE NO ONE LIKES YOU
[15:36:46] <sbx> !8ball Why is MiniMe painted funny colours?
[15:36:46] * MiniMe looks in the 8 Ball and the answer is... 3 WTFNO
[15:37:47] <Soul|OMGHI> ...
[15:40:45] <Soul|OMGHI> there we go
[15:41:02] <Soul|OMGHI> i cut off irq 10 AND 11, so it bumped the sound card to 5, which is acceptable
[15:41:21] <-- toad`sMok has left IRC (Ping timeout: 181 seconds)
[15:43:32] <Soul|OMGHI> damn
[15:43:34] <Soul|OMGHI> i still don't get sound
[15:43:35] <Soul|OMGHI> wtf
[15:43:40] <sbx> WTFNO
[15:43:52] <Soul|OMGHI> i just want sound ;(
[15:44:08] <sbx> you have been playing Exult with no sound?
[15:44:20] <Soul|OMGHI> no i'm trying to get u8 in windows to work
[15:44:34] <Soul|OMGHI> it runs, with music, just no sound
[15:44:43] <Soul|OMGHI> before my IRQ was higher then what the gay install let me choose
[15:44:50] <Colourless> what card?
[15:44:51] <Soul|OMGHI> so now i force my card to an IRQ it uses
[15:44:54] <Soul|OMGHI> and it still doesn't work
[15:44:59] <Soul|OMGHI> it's an sb clone, yamaha
[15:45:11] <Colourless> what windows?
[15:45:14] <Soul|OMGHI> XP
[15:45:19] <Soul|OMGHI> music works, but no sound
[15:45:23] <Soul|OMGHI> u7 in windows works with sound
[15:45:32] <Soul|OMGHI> so does TIE fighter omg that game is roxxor
[15:45:35] <Colourless> are you using VDMS?
[15:45:42] <Soul|OMGHI> dunno
[15:45:55] <Colourless> BTW U8 doesn't work with Sound in Windows 2000/XP
[15:46:04] <Soul|OMGHI> it should
[15:46:21] <Colourless> No it wont, let me explain
[15:46:33] <Colourless> Win 2K/XP doesn't allow direct hardware access
[15:46:36] <Soul|OMGHI> the api's allow for direct hardware access
[15:46:49] <Colourless> LET ME EXPLAIN!!!!!!!!
[15:46:52] <Soul|OMGHI> ok
[15:47:11] <Colourless> no api will allow dos apps to have direct hardware access
[15:47:36] <Colourless> however, WindowsXP has a built in Sound Blaster emulator built into to is' MSDOS Virtual Machine
[15:48:06] <Colourless> It allows for Basic Mono Sound Blaster emulation and MPU401 Support.
[15:48:14] <Soul|OMGHI> i'm pretty sure XP can be set to allow full hardware access
[15:48:57] <Soul|OMGHI> maybe it can't
[15:48:59] <Soul|OMGHI> i dunno
[15:49:06] <Colourless> It doesn't actually matter what IRQ you soundcard is on, the emulation will allow to access the emulated sound blaster using IRQ 5/7, Address 220, DMA 1
[15:50:26] <Colourless> you should use VDMS though, it's emulation is much better than the one the comes default in windows
[15:50:31] <Soul|OMGHI> i just got it
[15:57:55] <Soul|OMGHI> still doesn't work
[15:58:03] <Soul|OMGHI> doesn't crackle anymore, but no sound
[15:58:17] <sbx> crackle? :-)
[15:58:24] <Soul|OMGHI> yes, crackle
[15:58:59] <Colourless> didn't i tell you you won't be able to get the sound to work?
[15:59:16] <Soul|OMGHI> yes i will
[15:59:20] <Soul|OMGHI> it will just take time
[16:00:50] <Colourless> read this page, last entry: http://www.ece.mcgill.ca/~vromas/vdmsound/compat/compat.SP3.txt
[16:01:16] <Soul|OMGHI> i already read that
[16:01:22] <Colourless> and it said?
[16:01:42] <Soul|OMGHI> THAT says that it works
[16:02:10] <Colourless> try again
[16:02:20] <Soul|OMGHI> it says sb = ok, speech corrupted
[16:02:44] <Colourless> Speech is corrupted [Vlad: I suspect Win2k; it's probably not the patch, as Dominik says speech works fine under Win9x. Identical results with both VDMS and SoundFX.]
[16:03:01] <Soul|OMGHI> *** Ultima 8
[16:03:01] <Soul|OMGHI> MIDI=ok
[16:03:01] <Soul|OMGHI> SB=ok
[16:03:01] <Soul|OMGHI> Rem=You need to apply the Dragon Baroque patch (http://members.iinet.net.au/~rsd/U8inWindows.html). You may have to change your Windows video configuration to 640x480x256c, 60Hz in order to avoid Ultima hanging with a black screen or general protection fault. Speech is corrupted [Vlad: I suspect Win2k; it's probably not the patch, as Dominik says speech works fine under Win9x. Identical results with both VDMS and SoundFX.] [Vlad: und
[16:03:08] <Soul|OMGHI> i didn't say speech didn't work
[16:03:15] <Soul|OMGHI> i said sound didn't work period, that says sound CAN work
[16:03:19] <Soul|OMGHI> so i must make it work
[16:03:49] <Colourless> fine don't believe me, waste your time trying to get it to work, when you won't be able to
[16:03:58] <Soul|OMGHI> then why does that say it will work?
[16:04:32] <Colourless> in order versions it kind of worked, but the sound had really really bad echoing
[16:04:42] <Soul|OMGHI> still works
[16:04:59] <Colourless> one foot step would last for about 2 seconds.
[16:05:19] <Soul|OMGHI> that's fine with me, if they say it can work, i'm gonna make it
[16:06:48] <Soul|OMGHI> AHA
[16:06:48] <Soul|OMGHI> it works!
[16:06:48] <Soul|OMGHI> it sounds like shit but it works
[16:06:50] <sbx> Darke are you awake?
[16:07:47] * Darke is awake.
[16:07:58] <sbx> Making all in ucxt
[16:07:59] <sbx> make[3]: Entering directory `/home/sbx/build/exult/usecode/ucxt'
[16:07:59] <sbx> make[3]: *** No rule to make target `all'. Stop.
[16:08:19] <Colourless> looks like you aren't makind ucxt :-)
[16:08:24] <Darke> When did it last work?
[16:08:41] <sbx> i last updated before Nadir added autoconf/make
[16:08:48] <wjp> you need to autogen.sh, and re-configure
[16:08:51] <Darke> Ahh. autogen.sh
[16:08:54] <sbx> ok
[16:09:15] <Soul|OMGHI> hmmm.. it slows down too much
[16:30:35] * Darke must disappear now, "Night all."
[16:30:41] <-- Darke has left #exult ()
[16:32:49] <Soul|OMGHI> mmmm gonna make me some eggs!
[16:32:54] <Soul|OMGHI> damn I wish I was married :(
[16:32:57] --- Soul|OMGHI is now known as Soul|Cookin
[16:36:09] <sbx> ?
[16:36:12] <sbx> why?
[16:36:36] <wjp> probably because he expects his wife would cook for him then? :-)
[16:36:55] <sbx> oh... what makes him think she would?
[16:37:04] <wjp> dunno :-)
[16:38:22] <sbx> a bot that prepares food would be more useful than MiniMe
[16:45:39] <Soul|Cookin> lisa said she'd cook for me
[16:45:49] <Soul|Cookin> and, colourless sir, joo were right
[16:46:41] <Colourless> 'bout what?
[16:47:12] <Soul|Cookin> sounds works, but it echoes like shit, and if you play more then one sound at a time, it lags up
[16:47:58] <Soul|Cookin> mmm eggs
[16:48:08] <Soul|Cookin> i can cook eggs, shake n bake, and ramen... that's it :(
[16:57:21] <Soul|Cookin> GENOCIDE

[18:26:58] * wjp is taking a look at that "Crash in Shamino's Castle" bug
[18:28:10] <wjp> it's trying to do something with a shape nr. 9291, somehow
[18:28:56] <Soul|Cookin> r
[18:35:47] <wjp> ugh... most or all NPCs >=292 are corrupt... great
[18:36:07] <Soul|Cookin> :/
[18:36:28] <Soul|Cookin> there weren't that many above that though, were there?
[18:36:38] <Soul|Cookin> i recall around 300 and it was all just random spawns
[18:40:14] <wjp> there are still some 'real' NPCs there
[18:41:04] <Soul|Cookin> does exult assign npc numbers to randomly generated/spawned creatures?
[18:41:11] <Colourless> no
[18:41:19] <Soul|Cookin> intentional?
[18:41:45] <Colourless> yeah
[18:41:58] <Soul|Cookin> how do you a modify a spawned creature
[18:42:00] <Soul|Cookin> ?
[18:43:02] <wjp> Colourless: shall I blame this one on not starting a new game?
[18:43:09] <Colourless> what do you mean?
[18:43:21] <wjp> it's a bug in the tracker
[18:43:22] <Colourless> wjp: is it an old savegame?
[18:43:26] <wjp> the attached savegame is corrupt
[18:43:35] <wjp> newgame.ver == 'Unknown'
[18:43:36] <Soul|Cookin> say you wanted to change the state flags of an npc that is a spawned npc, on screen
[18:44:21] <Colourless> the npc editor has a 'default' npc which is the last npc that was clicked with the mouse
[18:44:32] <Soul|Cookin> ok

[21:33:52] <rovragge> hello..
[21:33:57] <Soul|DAMNCATS> HERRO
[21:35:33] <rovragge> when youre in the dungeon on isle of avatar, there is a small room with a switch and a teleporter. the switch opens the southern or the northern door of the room at 154S 195E
[21:36:29] <rovragge> this room is difficult moving across, because the party can't avoid the teleporter when there are eight members in the party...
[21:36:54] <rovragge> you always hit the teleporter.. it's even difficult getting out the same way you came in..
