[21:03:36] <-- test1 has left IRC (Bah is NOT a sheep noise!)
[21:03:37] <wjp> hi
[21:03:41] <Flyn_Oakplume> heh
[21:03:43] <Flyn_Oakplume> Hello
[21:03:48] <Flyn_Oakplume> Everyone AFK?
[21:04:00] <wjp> not anymore :-)
[21:04:05] <Flyn_Oakplume> heh
[21:04:15] <Flyn_Oakplume> I was wondering
[21:04:40] <Flyn_Oakplume> Would you be looking for anyone to help on making any art for exult?
[21:05:02] <wjp> yes, we are
[21:05:30] <Flyn_Oakplume> Can you give me an example of what you need?
[21:06:11] <wjp> we currently need paperdoll art. This would mean faces, weapons, armour and some clothes
[21:06:29] <chimera|work> what do you mean everyone afk?
[21:06:37] <chimera|work> I gave you that warm greeting
[21:06:41] <Flyn_Oakplume> heh
[21:06:41] <chimera|work> and you snubbed me
[21:06:42] <wjp> (of the items/characters that are in Black Gate, but not in the Serpent Isle)
[21:06:46] <chimera|work> =]
[21:06:55] <Flyn_Oakplume> It thought it was a scripted response ;-)
[21:07:08] <wjp> heh :-)
[21:07:15] * Flyn_Oakplume nods.
[21:07:16] <chimera|work> hehe
[21:07:22] <Flyn_Oakplume> Do you have a list of the ones you need?
[21:07:48] <wjp> hmm... not at the moment, but I can make one
[21:08:02] <Flyn_Oakplume> OK
[21:08:08] <Flyn_Oakplume> Great
[21:08:15] <Flyn_Oakplume> Could you send it to me?
[21:08:30] <wjp> of course
[21:09:29] <wjp> what's your email address?
[21:09:35] <Flyn_Oakplume> not dcc?
[21:09:36] <Flyn_Oakplume> heh
[21:09:46] <wjp> firewall :-(
[21:09:50] <Flyn_Oakplume> dragon10@zahav.net.il
[21:09:55] <Flyn_Oakplume> heh
[21:10:36] * wjp starts copy pasting from the source code
[21:10:44] * Flyn_Oakplume laughs.
[21:11:02] <Flyn_Oakplume> In what format should I send them, and in how many colours?
[21:11:43] <wjp> U7 uses a 256 colour palette
[21:11:57] * Flyn_Oakplume nods.
[21:12:04] <wjp> I've got a .zip with the palette somewhere; I'll look it up
[21:12:47] <wjp> in what format would you like the palette?
[21:13:13] <Flyn_Oakplume> uh
[21:13:16] <Flyn_Oakplume> psd,bmp?
[21:13:22] <Flyn_Oakplume> gif?
[21:13:26] <Flyn_Oakplume> anything other then jpg
[21:13:37] <chimera|work> png!
[21:13:42] <wjp> ? .jpg isn't even indexed :-)
[21:13:51] <Flyn_Oakplume> heh
[21:14:02] <Flyn_Oakplume> png is good as well
[21:14:04] <wjp> I've got a paint shop pro .pal file, or an 8 bit .pcx file
[21:14:20] <Flyn_Oakplume> pcx is also good ;-)
[21:15:32] <wjp> do you have both BG and SI?
[21:15:51] * Flyn_Oakplume nods.
[21:15:56] <Flyn_Oakplume> 3 copies of UC
[21:16:05] * wjp only has two :-(
[21:16:06] <Flyn_Oakplume> As well as the original BG ;-)
[21:16:08] <Flyn_Oakplume> heh
[21:16:37] <wjp> hmm...
[21:16:54] * Flyn_Oakplume humms along.
[21:16:58] <wjp> lol
[21:17:22] <wjp> there's some restrictions for the paperdoll art
[21:17:34] <wjp> (ie. it should fit... :-) )
[21:18:04] <Flyn_Oakplume> what size should it be then?
[21:18:47] <wjp> are you planning on doing the faces, weapons or armour?
[21:19:37] <Flyn_Oakplume> i think i'll try weapons and armour
[21:19:43] <Flyn_Oakplume> at least in the start
[21:19:52] <Flyn_Oakplume> Are there many that need to be done?
[21:20:05] <wjp> depends on what you call many :-)
[21:20:07] * wjp counts
[21:21:21] <wjp> roughly 30 items, but a lot of them are colour variations on others. (ie. there are 6 different colours of pants :-) )
[21:21:30] <Flyn_Oakplume> bah
[21:21:33] <Flyn_Oakplume> thats easy to change
[21:21:35] <Flyn_Oakplume> ;-)
[21:21:45] <Flyn_Oakplume> 30 items isnt that much
[21:22:15] <wjp> the problem is that they need to be aligned with the shape of the body
[21:22:32] <Flyn_Oakplume> Hmm
[21:22:51] <wjp> I think the easiest would be if I send you a few sample weapons/clothes/armour
[21:23:07] <wjp> (from the SI paperdoll graphics)
[21:23:18] <Flyn_Oakplume> Sure
[21:23:21] <Flyn_Oakplume> Send away
[21:23:27] <wjp> along with a couple of screenshots of how it looks in-game
[21:24:29] <wjp> would you like it all in one big attachment or should I put it online somewhere?
[21:24:50] <Flyn_Oakplume> Whatever's faster ;-)
[21:25:00] <wjp> heh :-)
[21:25:56] <wjp> I won't get it all done tonight, I'm afraid
[21:26:09] <wjp> (need to go to bed soon... :-( )
[21:26:12] <Flyn_Oakplume> Whats tonight?
[21:26:15] <Flyn_Oakplume> What timezone?
[21:26:27] <wjp> MET (europe)
[21:26:36] <wjp> it's 10:30 PM here
[21:26:44] <Flyn_Oakplume> I'm GMT +2 but i'm on holiday right now
[21:26:53] <wjp> Israel?
[21:26:58] * Flyn_Oakplume nods.
[21:27:11] <Flyn_Oakplume> How'd you know?
[21:27:16] <wjp> .il :-)
[21:27:21] <Flyn_Oakplume> Doh
[21:27:23] <Flyn_Oakplume> heh
[21:28:20] <wjp> anyway, thanks a lot for the offer!
[21:28:27] <wjp> I'll get that .zip together ASAP
[21:28:40] <Flyn_Oakplume> Great
[21:28:50] <Flyn_Oakplume> Is there a deadline?
[21:29:00] <wjp> not unless you want one ;-)
[21:29:09] <Flyn_Oakplume> heh
[21:29:37] <Flyn_Oakplume> Are you from amsterdam? (just checking my tracing program :-) )
[21:29:38] <wjp> development on Exult is pretty loose. We aren't really working on a schedule
[21:29:54] * Flyn_Oakplume nods yet again.
[21:29:58] <wjp> no, from near Leiden. (which is in between The Hague and Amsterdam)
[21:30:09] <Flyn_Oakplume> I'll get started on it as soon as I get it
[21:30:24] <Flyn_Oakplume> must be because it only traces it to the ISP
[21:30:25] <wjp> the 'ogt' stands for the city I live in
[21:30:57] <Flyn_Oakplume> ah
[21:31:49] <Flyn_Oakplume> Say
[21:32:01] <wjp> wow, traffic from me to you is routed through New York
[21:32:07] <Flyn_Oakplume> heh
[21:32:21] <Flyn_Oakplume> yeah israel is linked to all europe through the usa
[21:32:35] <Flyn_Oakplume> Have you ever heard of Ultima Legacy?
[21:32:44] * wjp thinks
[21:32:51] <wjp> hmm... doesn't ring a bell
[21:33:41] <Flyn_Oakplume> Its this UO server that I play on, I thought you might like it
[21:33:56] <Flyn_Oakplume> Follows the Ultima story very carefully
[21:34:20] <wjp> I kind of gave up on UO half a year ago. It was taking up too much time ;-)
[21:34:37] <Flyn_Oakplume> Heh
[21:34:47] <Flyn_Oakplume> Ah well
[21:34:50] <Flyn_Oakplume> Anyway
[21:34:58] <Flyn_Oakplume> Send me the zip, and ill get started on it
[21:35:10] <-- wjp has left IRC (barnes.openprojects.net pohl.openprojects.net)
[21:35:20] --> wjp has joined #exult
[21:35:31] <wjp> hmm... now what was that?
[21:35:32] <Flyn_Oakplume> heh
[21:35:34] <Flyn_Oakplume> split?
[21:35:39] <Flyn_Oakplume> hmm
[21:35:41] <Flyn_Oakplume> although
[21:35:44] <wjp> no, I got disconnected
[21:35:44] <Flyn_Oakplume> doesnt make sense
[21:35:50] <Flyn_Oakplume> wierd
[21:36:33] <wjp> hmm... it did look like a netsplit from the other end
[21:36:49] <wjp> maybe a server crashed or something
[21:37:31] <Flyn_Oakplume> Could be anything,really
[21:37:55] <wjp> yeah, guessing is pretty useless :-)
[21:38:17] <wjp> anyway, I have to go
[21:38:22] <Flyn_Oakplume> Good night
[21:38:28] <Flyn_Oakplume> I'll talk to you sometime
[21:38:30] <wjp> thanks again for the offer; I'll mail you that .zip sometime tomorrow
