[20:25:53] <MikeChelen> getting a segfault with iwd
[20:26:11] <fuzzie> oh?
[20:26:57] <MikeChelen> http://pastebin.com/dvVArV1Z
[20:27:14] <fuzzie> oh
[20:27:20] <fuzzie> you're missing the data
[20:27:20] <MikeChelen> that is the last few lines, not sure if that helps
[20:27:28] <MikeChelen> the game starts ok though
[20:27:32] <fuzzie> we should really, really give a nice error in that case
[20:27:41] <fuzzie> do you get an in-game area?
[20:27:43] <MikeChelen> and i can create a party
[20:27:54] <MikeChelen> nope it crashes which clicking done on the create party screen
[20:27:56] <fuzzie> the GUI data files are party of the default install
[20:28:24] <MikeChelen> it was a full install
[20:28:27] <fuzzie> but the in-game stuff is on the CDs, so usually that means the CD path isn't pointing at the right place
[20:28:36] <MikeChelen> oh yeah that must be it
[20:28:47] <MikeChelen> my gamepath is set properly but i wasn't sure about cd paths
[20:29:23] <MikeChelen> there is only 1 dvd, should they all point to the same place?
[20:30:08] <fuzzie> CD1=/home/fuzzie/src/gemrb/iwd/
[20:30:08] <fuzzie> CD2=/home/fuzzie/src/gemrb/iwd/CD2/
[20:30:08] <fuzzie> CD3=/home/fuzzie/src/gemrb/iwd/CD3/
[20:30:16] <fuzzie> ^- this is what i have for my DVD version
[20:31:23] <MikeChelen> ah interesting
[20:31:29] <fuzzie> but i guess it depends on which directories you got from the installer :)
[20:31:42] <MikeChelen> had to manually create my .cfg file
[20:32:05] <fuzzie> it should hopefully be obvious from what's inside your full install
[20:32:10] <fuzzie> well, 'obvious' :/
[20:32:33] <MikeChelen> got past the party creation screen by setting up CD1 path
[20:33:10] <MikeChelen> there is a CD2 directory ~/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/Black Isle/Icewind Dale/CD2
[20:33:18] <MikeChelen> no CD3 though
[20:33:34] <MikeChelen> oh wait this should point to the CD itself
[20:33:53] <MikeChelen> yeah ok the DVD also has a CD2 directory
[20:35:12] <MikeChelen> yay, it seems to be working :)
[20:35:15] <fuzzie> if there's no CD3, then there's no need to point anything there - i guess CD3 is Heart of Winter?
[20:36:14] <MikeChelen> oh maybe
[20:36:34] <fuzzie> i would highly recommend installing Heart of Winter if you have it, and the (free, if you have HoW) Trials of the Luremaster on top of that, because they fix a huge number of bugs
[20:36:47] <MikeChelen> with a higher resolution (1280x1024) some of the menu overlays are not appearing in the game
[20:36:55] <MikeChelen> oh ok
[20:37:03] <MikeChelen> yeah HoW is probably around here somewhere
[20:37:05] <fuzzie> and plain iwd1 only does 640x480
[20:37:23] <MikeChelen> oh yeah it seems that way
[20:37:42] <MikeChelen> well the in-game view seemed larger but other things didn't display right
[20:38:05] <fuzzie> i think plain iwd1 just doesn't have all the necessary graphical bits for the larger UI
[20:38:20] <fuzzie> and no-one's really bothered fixing that, because HoW fixes so many bugs anyway
[20:38:28] <MikeChelen> think i have iwd2 as wel
[20:38:38] <MikeChelen> would it be better to try that?
[20:38:39] <fuzzie> but i am really not an iwd expert, i never played further than a third or so through..
[20:38:48] <fuzzie> no, iwd2/pst in gemrb aren't completeable
[20:39:02] <MikeChelen> whatever works best in gemrb is what i'd like to try
[20:39:23] <MikeChelen> oh no, so maybe iwd1 + how?
[20:39:26] <fuzzie> i think HoW works best? lynxlynxlynx would know better han me.
[20:40:30] <MikeChelen> just want to get something playable, and higher resolution would be great to have :)
[20:41:11] <lynxlynxlynx> iwd with how installed, yes
[20:41:14] <MikeChelen> ok so how should be installed on top of iwd1?
[20:41:19] <MikeChelen> cool let me try that
[20:41:32] <lynxlynxlynx> the game part of how is still a bit clunky, but the iwd part is good
[20:41:49] <lynxlynxlynx> don't forget to change the GameType to how in the config
[20:42:38] <MikeChelen> what should the gamepath and cd paths be?
[20:44:20] <MikeChelen> keep gamepath to iwd1 directory right
[20:44:41] <MikeChelen> it looks like there is also a CD3 directory on the how cd
[20:45:11] <MikeChelen> ok, got how running
[20:45:53] <MikeChelen> and the "full game" is the type that works best?
[20:47:16] <MikeChelen> oh no, vice versa
[20:47:41] <fuzzie> full game is fine
[20:48:42] <MikeChelen> the menus don't appear properly in game with high screen res
[20:49:31] <MikeChelen> also for some reason it isn't using the full screen, even though Fullscreen=1 in config
[20:49:39] <lynxlynxlynx> you'll need the widescreen mod if you want to use a different resolution from the ones the original supported
[20:50:27] <lynxlynxlynx> yeah, there was kind of a regression in the last release, for fullscreen you also have to enable it in $GamePath/icewind.ini
[20:51:50] <MikeChelen> oh ok
[20:51:58] <MikeChelen> how do you get the widescreen mod
[20:52:02] <MikeChelen> ?
[20:52:37] <lynxlynxlynx> what resolution do you want to use?
[20:53:10] <MikeChelen> 1280x1024 would be great
[20:53:47] <Lightkey> oldschool :-D
[20:54:50] <lynxlynxlynx> hmm, that's probably too high for the original
[20:55:34] <lynxlynxlynx> check if it was supported - try running the config program that is included
[20:55:47] <lynxlynxlynx> otherwise you really will need the widescreen mod for this
[20:57:53] <MikeChelen> there are a bunch of "unsupported" modes but they are still not selectable after checking unlock
[20:58:14] <MikeChelen> maybe will try enabled opengl in the future
[20:58:41] <MikeChelen> what is the setting in icewind.ini for full screen?
[20:59:58] <lynxlynxlynx> the same
[21:00:04] <MikeChelen> ah found it
[21:01:22] <MikeChelen> hehe ok, well now it is using the whole screen but it doesn't actually change monitor resolution :D
[21:01:49] <MikeChelen> hmm it might be something wrong with my video card though
