[02:59:52] <CIA-2> gemrb: 03mattinm * r6394 10/gemrb/trunk/gemrb/plugins/Core/Actor.cpp: cleaned up attack/init round debug output
[03:01:17] <mattinm> it cut it down to 1 line for InitRound (only displays when it goes through) to show which actor the round is init'ing, when it started, and how many attacks
[03:02:02] <mattinm> and attack output is 1 line that will show how many attacks left, when the next attack is, how much base damage, and if it (critical) hit/missed

[08:53:46] <lynxlynxlynx> fuzzie: http://pastebin.ca/1456368 <-- focus crash; *m is fine :s
[09:01:56] <fuzzie> oops
[09:02:50] <fuzzie> i forgot to change the var there. let me check i fixed it elsewhere too..
[09:03:07] <lynxlynxlynx> missing "mouse"?
[09:03:41] <lynxlynxlynx> nevermind
[09:05:10] <fuzzie> yes, missing mouse.
[09:06:13] <fuzzie> i deliberately left EventMgr.cpp:154 alone, that check is probably not necessary at all
[09:06:49] <fuzzie> otherwise it looks fine, so i guess it's just a bug there.
[09:22:29] <fuzzie> do you know which window that was?
[09:24:48] <lynxlynxlynx> i was finishing the splitting of a scroll stack
[09:25:11] <lynxlynxlynx> so it was likely the main inventory one
[09:27:48] <fuzzie> we need the "you have rested for X hours" after sleep :)
[09:28:28] <CIA-2> gemrb: 03fuzzie * r6396 10/gemrb/trunk/gemrb/plugins/Core/EventMgr.cpp: focus crash fix

[10:25:08] <fuzzie> morning, pupnik
[10:29:23] <pupnik> moo
[10:29:39] <pupnik> how u?
[10:32:44] <fuzzie> cheerful :) you survived your cleaning?
[10:34:49] <pupnik> also cheerful. hernia receeded last night and hasnt popped out today yet
[10:37:04] --> barra_library has joined #gemrb
[10:37:47] <fuzzie> h'rah.
[10:38:43] <-- pupnik has left #gemrb ("Leaving")
[11:04:49] <mattinm> morning everyone
[11:05:25] <barra_library> hi mattinm!
[11:06:39] * mattinm goes to get some tea... early morning *yawn*
[11:12:14] <mattinm> hi barra :)
[11:13:47] <barra_library> :-)
[11:13:55] <mattinm> good day so far?
[11:17:54] <fuzzie> are there any known crashes at the moment apart from the container between areas one?
[11:18:27] <mattinm> i haven't really noticed anything; but i don't do much adventuring
[11:19:33] <barra_library> for me yes :-) no university courses today
[11:19:34] <mattinm> fuzzie: do you know if ps:t/iwd/iwd2 all have the "you have rested" messages?
[11:20:07] <mattinm> barra: that's always nice :)... i'm off until late august
[11:22:34] <fuzzie> pst doesn't have a console window, so we need to rewrite all the message code for it :/
[11:22:44] <fuzzie> lynx has iwd and i have iwd2 to check, will do shortly
[11:23:23] <mattinm> kk...i was rather hoping (against hope, likely) that the strref was the same in all the games... it is in bg1/2, but that is to be expected
[11:24:58] <fuzzie> well, the injured strrefs turned out to be the same in bg1/iwd/how/iwd2 :)
[11:25:27] <fuzzie> what's it in bg1/bg2?
[11:25:30] <mattinm> perhaps then :)... it's 10700 for hours and 10690 for the rest message
[11:25:35] <mattinm> hehe, right as i finished typing it
[11:25:44] <fuzzie> @10690 = ~You have rested for <DURATION>.~
[11:25:49] <fuzzie> @10700 = ~<HOUR> hours~
[11:25:51] <fuzzie> ^- iwd2
[11:25:54] <mattinm> sweet
[11:26:23] <fuzzie> @19262 = ~You rested for <HOUR> <DURATION>~
[11:26:33] <fuzzie> ^- pst, but that probably needs another codepath
[11:28:31] <mattinm> likely :(
[11:28:51] <mattinm> does all text "float" in pst then?
[11:28:55] <fuzzie> yes
[11:29:26] <fuzzie> http://fuzzie.org/psttext.jpg
[11:29:46] <fuzzie> floats upward and fades out
[11:29:52] <mattinm> i now understand why you had to put some work into that :/
[11:30:31] <fuzzie> heh, i haven't even implemented that yet :( must do so, but it involves a bunch of code we're missing right now, global text bounding-box checks and stuff
[11:30:51] <mattinm> i can imagine; not fun stuff really
[11:31:04] <fuzzie> well, it is nicer than struggling with combat, to me :)
[11:31:13] <mattinm> well, i won't say "not fun" because i'm sadistic enough to get enjoyment from a struggle
[11:31:38] <mattinm> combat is just tedious :/
[11:32:23] <mattinm> oh, my copy of iwd2 should be here some time early next week, so i'll finally be able to cross-reference some things i can't find online
[11:33:08] <mattinm> one thing that gets me though, is that it really does seem, from a few printf's, that damage type needs to be shifted >>16
[11:33:13] --> pupnik has joined #gemrb
[11:33:16] <Gekz> hai
[11:33:20] <Gekz> who is mattinm?
[11:33:42] <mattinm> me :)
[11:33:53] <fuzzie> Gekz: you should keep up more :) he wrote bg2 levelup and a lot of combat code
[11:33:58] <Gekz> when
[11:34:00] <Gekz> WHEN
[11:34:04] <Gekz> mattinm: hello and welcome
[11:34:07] <Gekz> you are my new deity
[11:34:11] <Gekz> what alignment are you?
[11:34:30] <mattinm> haha, i wouldn't go that far, you're the one with their name in the channel title ;)
[11:34:46] <mattinm> chaotic good i would say
[11:34:49] <Gekz> lol
[11:35:06] <Gekz> well, that's a joke
[11:35:10] <Gekz> I said put the link in the topic
[11:35:11] <fuzzie> mattinm: damage type for printing, or for all purposes?
[11:35:16] <Gekz> they said no, I said but I can never remembe it
[11:35:17] <Gekz> :P
[11:35:18] <mattinm> fuzzie: all purposes
[11:35:26] <pupnik> stay on target....
[11:35:26] <Gekz> mattinm: how long did it take to implement combat?
[11:35:32] <fuzzie> maybe we're reading it wrong
[11:35:54] <mattinm> fuzzie: well, there is an unknown word before the damage type, but it's all read as a dword
[11:36:22] <mattinm> Gekz: a couple weeks, to get it to where it is; still plenty of work to do though :/
[11:36:36] <Gekz> mattinm: it's no small feat to get it working at all
[11:36:36] <Gekz> :P
[11:36:39] <fuzzie> damage types are maybe only sanity-checked against iwd2
[11:37:04] <mattinm> Geks: but i did manage to kill just about everything on the first area of château irenicus
[11:37:16] <mattinm> fuzzie: that's my theory, and why i haven't touched it
[11:37:34] <fuzzie> mattinm: which file format are you looking at, here?
[11:39:16] <mattinm> fuzzie: EFF v1 for sure, but i'm pretty sure the EFF v2 files would have the same problem, just by looking at the layout
[11:39:35] <fuzzie> the PrimaryType?
[11:40:15] <fuzzie> i assume i'm being stupid here
[11:40:47] <fuzzie> but if i know which field it is, it's trivial to script something to check all files
[11:41:01] <mattinm> it's 0x20 offset
[11:41:04] <mattinm> dword
[11:41:16] <mattinm> it's called DamageType in NI
[11:41:48] <fuzzie> well, 0x20 in an EFF is just an effect parameter
[11:41:54] <Gekz> Buttkicking, for goodness
[11:42:15] <fuzzie> so which effect type(s) are involved?
[11:42:39] <mattinm> well, i've only looked at things that are 0x0c (Damage-effect) specific
[11:42:46] <mattinm> at it effects all that i can see
[11:43:23] <mattinm> try casting an acid arrow and adding a printf to the damage effect
[11:43:25] <fuzzie> well, the idea is that the effect code should be shifting params if needed
[11:44:00] <mattinm> yeah; that's where i have it added on my local copy, but i'm not certain enough to commit
[11:45:28] <mattinm> Gekz: haha... my favorite line has got to be: "Wouldn't it be cool if you could dual-wield me?", but i love Lilacor
[11:45:36] <fuzzie> the original asm does mask off the low bits of *something*
[11:45:47] <Gekz> lol
[11:46:50] <fuzzie> anyway, just shifting the param is not right, both high and low words are used in the effect
[11:48:01] <mattinm> another reason why i didn't do it :)... the damagetype&3 threw me for a loop
[11:50:18] <fuzzie> the chitem docs say that 1 is 'lower HP to damage value', 2 is 'lower HP to fixed percent specified by damage value', and then you do >>16 to get the damage type
[11:50:40] <mattinm> yeah, that's what i figured
[11:50:59] <mattinm> the upperword had to hold some things, or the &3 didn't make sense
[11:51:06] <mattinm> *lowerword
[11:51:15] <fuzzie> but if you >>16 then you don't seem to get a match with the DAMAGE_ defines
[11:51:38] <fuzzie> so maybe this differs per-game, i'll try to have a look
[11:51:41] <mattinm> yeah
[11:51:57] <mattinm> it seemed, from all the ones i looked at, that >>16 matched DAMAGE_ defines
[11:52:10] <fuzzie> you checked bg2?
[11:52:12] <mattinm> yeah
[11:52:32] <fuzzie> this is probably different in iwd2, then
[11:53:46] <mattinm> i know iwd2 added some damage types, but you'd think they would have just left the same basic layout the same
[11:58:33] <fuzzie> but you checked this in gemrb?
[11:58:54] <mattinm> yes
[11:59:37] <mattinm> HittingHeader is fine, but effects for things such as acid arrow, flame arrow, flail of ages (elementals), etc, are showing as <<16
[12:00:14] <fuzzie> i guess >>16 seems to work for everything
[12:01:51] <mattinm> the nasty thing is Actor::Damage
[12:02:27] <mattinm> some effects ops call them, but it does the masking check (damagetype&3) to figure out mod additive, percent, etc
[12:02:43] <mattinm> but it only sends damagetype as DAMAGE_*
[12:04:09] <fuzzie> add another parameter to Damage for damagemode?
[12:04:13] <mattinm> hehe
[12:04:19] <mattinm> again, you got that in right before i finished
[12:04:27] <fuzzie> that seems like the right solution.
[12:04:38] <mattinm> and default it to MOD_ADDITIVE
[12:04:54] <fuzzie> well
[12:05:02] <fuzzie> i would make it explicit everywhere, but i didnt' look at the callers
[12:05:30] <mattinm> they all assumed additive from what i saw
[12:05:36] <mattinm> but i'd double-check
[12:07:24] <mattinm> i wonder why damagetype>5 is considered non-lethal ?
[12:07:31] <mattinm> in DealDamage
[12:09:21] <fuzzie> looking..
[12:09:23] --- barra_library is now known as barraAway
[12:09:43] <lynxlynxlynx> there are still crashes, but the one i'm thinking of is not so recent
[12:10:06] <lynxlynxlynx> it's about item abilities, so i'll dump it to avenger ;)
[12:10:34] <mattinm> hehe
[12:11:41] <mattinm> fuzzie: it appears that 5 is the max type in the weapon extended header (fists), so, perhaps anything above that is non-lethal for some reason?
[12:12:14] <fuzzie> well, it was modified from a previous commit that did (damagetype>4)
[12:12:37] <fuzzie> and that one dates right back to the first days of any combat code at all
[12:12:55] <fuzzie> - target->Damage(damage, damagetype, this);
[12:12:55] <fuzzie> + if (damagetype>4) damagetype = 0;
[12:12:55] <fuzzie> + target->Damage(damage, weapon_damagetype[damagetype], this);
[12:12:57] <mattinm> yeah; perhaps it's just protection from unknown weapon damage types
[12:13:07] <fuzzie> so i think that makes it clear :)
[12:13:11] <mattinm> yeah
[12:14:54] <mattinm> i wonder why fists are considered DAMAGE_STUNNING, that's neat
[12:15:05] <fuzzie> what is DealDamage doing now anyway?
[12:15:30] <mattinm> it just checks whether or not you can actually damage the target, from what i can see
[12:15:45] <fuzzie> so all that code at the end should just be removed
[12:15:49] <mattinm> it's just for weapon damage
[12:16:10] <fuzzie> changing damagetype there doesn't do anything now we're no longer calling Damage directly
[12:16:23] <fuzzie> so if the sanity check needs to be done, needs doing elsewhere :)
[12:16:50] <fuzzie> but please do this bit-by-bit if you can, trying to figure this stuff out when it's all in one big commit is frustrating
[12:17:14] <mattinm> okies :)
[12:18:56] <mattinm> fuzzie: looking at the end of DealDamage, it certainly seems it's doing absolutely nothing now, other than the checks
[12:22:02] <mattinm> yep, UseItem is just added a damage effect to the target queue
[12:22:28] <fuzzie> maybe change to CheckDamage at the same time?
[12:22:46] <fuzzie> i also think defaulting Damage to MOD_ADDITIVE is fine, btw
[12:22:54] <mattinm> yeah; DealDamage should be change damage
[12:22:59] <mattinm> *CheckDamage
[12:23:04] <mattinm> had two thoughts at once :/
[12:23:28] <mattinm> well, i'll make that change and commit it first
[12:32:38] <mattinm> eek; stoneskins aren't going down when you hit :/
[12:36:48] --- barraAway is now known as barra_library
[12:45:28] <mattinm> it seems to be that it doesn't pass MATCH_LIVE_FX
[12:45:39] <mattinm> these are stoneskins on saved game characters though
[12:45:54] <fuzzie> i have no idea about that code
[12:46:19] <fuzzie> DecreaseParam1OfEffect is failing?
[12:46:58] <mattinm> yes; it finds the opcode, but fails the alive check
[12:48:03] <mattinm> after looking at the cre files in the save, the stoneskin has time mode of 4096, which would certainly cause that bit of code to fail
[12:49:44] <fuzzie> uh, interesting :)
[12:50:05] <mattinm> it's like that for all 4 of them (3 have stoneskin and 1 has iron skins)
[12:50:35] <mattinm> anyway, the code is fine, just my saved stoneskins won't come down :)
[12:50:53] <mattinm> i can slowly kill them with the elemental damage from the flail though ;)
[12:51:14] <fuzzie> isn't timing mode for effects a single char?
[12:51:52] <mattinm> it shows as a word in NI
[12:51:56] <mattinm> *dword
[12:52:08] <mattinm> but it sometimes skips things around a bit
[12:52:17] <-- pupnik has left IRC ("Leaving")
[12:52:24] <mattinm> well, just forgets to but missing pieces as unknown
[12:52:46] <fuzzie> there've been quite a few times in here where someone's debugged something with NI, and NI has turned out to be lying about field values :/
[12:52:53] <fuzzie> could you send me a copy of the save?
[12:52:58] <mattinm> sure
[12:53:09] <fuzzie> fuzzie@gmail.com is easiest if you'd prefer email
[12:55:44] <mattinm> http://gra.midco.net/marshall.mattingly/bg2_saves/stoneskinsave.tar.gz
[12:55:56] <fuzzie> ta
[12:56:09] <mattinm> no problem
[12:57:35] <fuzzie> timing mode is 0 for those stoneskins, with a very long duration
[12:58:02] <mattinm> good; that's what it should be :)
[12:59:05] <fuzzie> this is from a modded game, i guess
[12:59:38] <mattinm> that one might be, yes
[13:00:01] <mattinm> well, if timingmode is 0, it should be passing the alive test
[13:00:59] <fuzzie> gemrb is reading the TimingMode into a dword
[13:01:09] <mattinm> yeah, i was just about to say that
[13:01:16] <fuzzie> so including that unknown field in the mix
[13:01:17] <mattinm> you're on a roll
[13:02:04] <mattinm> that would seem the likely culprit
[13:02:26] <fuzzie> the whole dword is listed as 'flags' in chitem
[13:03:36] <fuzzie> anyway, that is indeed the bug, gemrb is reading a whole mix into that field. should probably split it out.
[13:03:59] <mattinm> yeah; i just don't want to be the one that messes it up :p
[13:05:05] <fuzzie> yes, it probably needs some peering at what those other fields mean
[13:06:49] <fuzzie> i'll look at it later, i guess :) any luck with the rest of the code?
[13:07:06] <mattinm> yeah, about to commit the CanDamage segment
[13:07:22] <mattinm> it works, it just sucks that the skins aren't coming down :/
[13:12:07] <CIA-2> gemrb: 03mattinm * r6397 10/gemrb/trunk/gemrb/plugins/Core/ (Actor.cpp Actor.h):
[13:12:07] <CIA-2> gemrb: renamed DealDamage to CanDamage
[13:12:07] <CIA-2> gemrb: moved "Critical Hit" debug output up
[13:12:07] <CIA-2> gemrb: speed += instead of -= for 2-handed style
[13:12:34] <mattinm> should have also said that CanDamage now returns a bool instead of nothing
[13:14:30] <fuzzie> i think calling it CanDamage is a bit confusing because it *does* change things
[13:14:56] <fuzzie> and the damage=0; in the caller is silly because CanDamage is already making that change
[13:15:25] <mattinm> not in the case of stoneskins/mirrorimages
[13:16:10] <fuzzie> ah, okay.
[13:16:31] <fuzzie> kind of a mix there :/
[13:16:43] <mattinm> perhaps ModifyDamage would be better suited
[13:16:52] <mattinm> and have it always set damage=0 if need-be?
[13:17:05] <fuzzie> that would be my first thought, but don't change it just because i find it confusing :)
[13:17:25] <mattinm> hehe; well, i would prefer the name to be as appropriate as possible
[13:25:47] --> pupnik has joined #gemrb
[13:33:23] --> lbt has joined #gemrb
[13:37:50] <CIA-2> gemrb: 03mattinm * r6398 10/gemrb/trunk/gemrb/plugins/ (Core/Actor.cpp Core/Actor.h FXOpcodes/FXOpc.cpp):
[13:37:50] <CIA-2> gemrb: added int modtype to Actor::Damage and defaulting to MOD_ADDITIVE
[13:37:50] <CIA-2> gemrb: damage opcode (0x0c) now parses out the modtype and >>16 to get damagetype
[13:38:32] <lbt> does multi-player BG2 work ?
[13:39:19] <mattinm> lbt: unfortunately not; it would be a pretty big task to implement, and i don't know of any plans to do so as of yet
[13:39:39] <lbt> OK, ta... the wife used to really enjoy that aspect ;)
[13:39:49] <mattinm> after single-player mode is ironed out, perhaps that can be looked at though :)
[13:40:00] <lbt> congrats though... impressive work!
[13:40:34] <mattinm> thanks! it gets moved along a little each day
[13:40:46] <lynxlynxlynx> someone was here saying he'll work on mp last year, but then vanished before we saw any code, design or plan
[13:41:08] <lbt> heh... I'm working on a mobile internet tablet distro over at #mer so I know what you mean :)
[13:49:01] <mattinm> lol... the dead twitching is ridiculous... they just keep on going
[13:51:38] <pupnik> make em twich super fast like the androids in blade runner ;)
[13:52:00] <pupnik> and play the dying android scream
[13:52:10] <mattinm> hahaha
[13:52:13] <pupnik> randomly, once every 1000 kills
[14:04:25] <fuzzie> i think mp is certainly eventually viable, but would be tremendously painful for now
[14:05:43] <fuzzie> i assume the dead twitching is the combat code's fault?
[14:15:26] <mattinm> it appears to be a "problem" with GetAnimation
[14:15:37] <mattinm> if your dead, it always turns you into twitching
[14:16:39] <mattinm> it cites compatibility with pst as reasoning though
[14:16:49] <fuzzie> where's the code?
[14:16:59] <mattinm> but it says "no different animation for sleep/die, not twitch"
[14:17:15] <mattinm> CharAnimations.cpp:684
[14:18:23] <mattinm> it's called with IE_ANI_DIE on death, naturally
[14:19:06] <fuzzie> right, but then it shouldn't be called any more
[14:19:29] <mattinm> no, but Draw will, which calls GetAnimation
[14:19:36] <fuzzie> i remember someone fiddled with this a while ago
[14:19:46] <mattinm> so, it will have switched to IE_ANI_TWITCH instead of staying dead
[14:19:56] <fuzzie> well, sort of :)
[14:22:32] <fuzzie> i mean, IE_ANI_TWITCH on death is quite correct, but then autoSwitchOnEnd should make it switch to the right anim and stop animating.
[14:22:46] <fuzzie> only someone changed this code to restart attack animations and made the twitching loop forever.
[14:22:54] <fuzzie> or restart if it's meant to be at IE_ANI_DIE.
[14:23:01] <fuzzie> i'll take a look at this, too, i guess.
[14:24:25] <fuzzie> it was zefklop in r6322
[14:24:59] <mattinm> all i know is it's crazy looking when you kill a bunch of things and they're spazzing out on the ground
[14:25:24] <mattinm> i feel almost sorry for them.... almost
[14:25:29] <fuzzie> he was trying to fix combat animations i guess :)
[14:26:03] <mattinm> most likely; the animation code doesn't really look too fun
[14:26:34] <fuzzie> I don't understand how the animation code for PS:T is meant to work at all.
[14:26:41] <fuzzie> Right now it doesn't, which is a bit frustrating.
[14:28:25] <mattinm> yeah; i haven't really looked at any of that code
[14:28:36] <fuzzie> i wouldn't if i were you :)
[14:28:48] <mattinm> hehe
[14:30:08] <fuzzie> my scribbled todo list just grows and grows, but i have the time at the moment :)
[14:30:32] <fuzzie> did you look at tidying up the CanDamage stuff?
[14:31:47] <mattinm> yeah; then i got distracted by the twitchers
[14:32:15] <mattinm> i'm going to just have damage always come back as the correct value and rename it ModifyDamage
[14:34:27] <fuzzie> the eff timing mode thing probably just needs splitting into three fields for now, if you want to poke at that
[14:34:45] <mattinm> yeah; i'll give it a look
[14:35:40] <mattinm> stoneskins fell fine after i put them up in game (i slept to wear off the old stoneskins)
[14:35:43] <fuzzie> but it is a not-insignificant amount of work to change all the timing stuff to ieByte and then make sure it all works
[14:36:12] <mattinm> no, it is not :/... but, if that is the problem, it will have to be done sometime
[14:36:36] <lynxlynxlynx> i'd rather see it being tried after the next release
[14:36:43] <lynxlynxlynx> we are pretty stable now
[14:37:07] <fuzzie> well, i had a look through and nothing seems to do anything remotely imaginative with that timing mode stuff
[14:37:42] <fuzzie> the RemoveAllEffects call with the timing param is only used in IWDOpcodes, with FX_DURATION_INSTANT_WHILE_EQUIPPED or FX_DURATION_INSTANT_LIMITED
[14:37:57] <fuzzie> and those are clearly going to work with the byte
[14:38:20] <fuzzie> but are you intending to release soon, lynx?
[14:38:49] <lynxlynxlynx> yes
[14:39:12] <lynxlynxlynx> i planned it one month after the previous, which is in two weeks
[14:39:18] <lynxlynxlynx> (wow)
[14:39:33] <fuzzie> i think we can probably have an awful lot debugged in the next 1.5 weeks or so :)
[14:39:54] <fuzzie> EffectQueue::CreateEffect can just be changed straight to ieByte..
[14:39:59] <lynxlynxlynx> we could also release sooner, there's plenty of new stuff already
[14:40:02] <fuzzie> same for the other stuff there
[14:40:39] <fuzzie> lynxlynxlynx: in two weeks we might have a 0.5 "actually usable" release, though :)
[14:40:59] <lynxlynxlynx> it's usable already
[14:41:27] <lynxlynxlynx> i have around 10 annoyances i'd like to see fixed before the release, but it's already miles ahead 0.4
[14:42:00] <mattinm> my favorite annoyance is dispel effects; that thing looks crazy
[14:42:13] <mattinm> it's like tiny pixelated snow
[14:42:24] <fuzzie> my short todo list that i think would be worth having: animation work, global keyboard bindings, portraits in sync, builtin projectiles, preload some tables, varied PS:T text fixes, PS:T/IWD2 round timings
[14:42:42] <fuzzie> sparkles need a rewrite i think :/
[14:43:08] <lynxlynxlynx> sparkles indeed look crappy and longlasting
[14:44:04] <lbt> do you guys have an -announce list?
[14:44:06] <lynxlynxlynx> fuzzie: sounds a lot for two weeks, especially the projectile part
[14:44:16] <fuzzie> mattinm: were you working on the rested text, btw? if so, might be a good time to ask lynx to check iwd/how strrefs
[14:44:26] <lynxlynxlynx> lbt: no, but you can follow the sourceforge releases
[14:44:44] <mattinm> fuzzie: yes, i've actually got it ready to commit after i find out about iwd/how
[14:44:47] * lbt forgets.. and doesn't want to lose track ;)
[14:44:59] <lynxlynxlynx> or check happypenguin or our forums or other news sites that aggregate ie modding news
[14:45:16] <lynxlynxlynx> mattinm: ok, let me check
[14:45:26] <fuzzie> mattinm: it fails safely in the event of missing strref?
[14:45:27] <lbt> np... I'll find something... -announce was easiest to check ;)
[14:45:31] <mattinm> lynx: should be resref 10700 and 10690
[14:45:43] <mattinm> *strref
[14:45:44] <fuzzie> mattinm: (do you handle '1 hour' and etc as well?)
[14:45:59] <lynxlynxlynx> #10690
[14:46:03] <lynxlynxlynx> String: You have rested for <DURATION>.
[14:46:10] <lynxlynxlynx> (iwd)
[14:46:30] <lynxlynxlynx> String: <HOUR> hours for 10700
[14:46:43] <fuzzie> that's the same as the other games, then
[14:46:50] <lynxlynxlynx> yep
[14:47:03] <mattinm> fuzzie: all i can see in the RestParty code is that either they rest for 8 hours, or they don't
[14:47:04] <lynxlynxlynx> usually low numbers like these are the same
[14:47:23] <lynxlynxlynx> the injured one from yesterday was the first discrepancy i've seen
[14:47:29] <fuzzie> mattinm: well, i mean, you should include all the string refs. we don't handle interrupted rest etc right now, but we should.
[14:47:54] <fuzzie> and we'll need them for travel time too (which is a strref right next to 10690 which might also be worth including in the commit)
[14:48:07] <mattinm> fuzzie: i agree :)
[14:48:13] <lbt> <sigh> http://freshmeat.net/search?q=GemRB&submit=Search and https://sourceforge.net/mailarchive/forum.php?forum_name=gemrb-release
[14:48:28] <lynxlynxlynx> lbt: freshmeat is a nono
[14:48:41] * lbt is helping GemRB marketing and evangelism ;)
[14:48:54] <fuzzie> i guess someone could post in gemrb-release if it'd be helpful
[14:49:22] <lynxlynxlynx> people already track releases
[14:49:27] <lynxlynxlynx> let me find you a link
[14:49:33] <fuzzie> via email, though?
[14:49:42] <lynxlynxlynx> yep
[14:50:04] <fuzzie> that'd be nice to mention to people i know who'd like to keep track of gemrb, too
[14:50:05] <lbt> just saying that announce messages that hit my email make me take another look .. so if I never got round to it or have an install issue then I may try again
[14:50:07] <lynxlynxlynx> https://sourceforge.net/forum/forum.php?forum_id=958705 <-- monitor this
[14:50:19] <lynxlynxlynx> i guess it will either be mail or rss
[14:50:27] <lbt> cool
[14:50:42] <CIA-2> gemrb: 03mattinm * r6399 10/gemrb/trunk/gemrb/plugins/Core/ (Actor.cpp Actor.h):
[14:50:42] <CIA-2> gemrb: renamed CanDamage to ModifyDamage
[14:50:42] <CIA-2> gemrb: automatically modifies damage (go figure)
[14:50:57] <fuzzie> ah, yes, monitoring a forum sends email, clever :)
[14:51:07] <lynxlynxlynx> https://sourceforge.net/projects/gemrb/ <-- main page has a rss icon
[14:51:23] <lynxlynxlynx> 6 subtypes
[14:52:11] <lbt> OK, thanks guys. l8r
[14:52:16] <fuzzie> bye!
[14:52:18] <-- lbt has left #gemrb ("Konversation terminated!")
[14:52:34] <fuzzie> keeping people interested probably becomes more important as we appoach being useful
[14:52:37] <lynxlynxlynx> oh, in case it wasn't clear, it is the same in how mattinm
[14:52:49] <mattinm> lynx: got it :)
[14:52:51] <fuzzie> a lot of people are very much "oh, gemrb will be useless for years yet"
[14:53:32] <lynxlynxlynx> i think we spam enough
[14:54:06] <lynxlynxlynx> i'll take care for the next release, so avenger doesn't post a ridiculous message to the forum
[14:54:29] <lynxlynxlynx> the oneliner got aggregated on all the ie sites and it had almost no info
[14:54:40] <fuzzie> yes, that would help
[14:54:43] <lynxlynxlynx> while we had a detailed announcement everywhere else
[14:55:34] <fuzzie> i should remember to ask Avenger for a copy of his attempted flickering fix.
[14:55:50] <fuzzie> that is one thing which makes gemrb look kind of silly almost immediately..
[14:56:06] <lynxlynxlynx> unless you try to cast spells first
[14:57:04] <lynxlynxlynx> some of that is due to the projectiles, some due to missing or incomplete effects and all seem to suffer from bad timing
[14:57:54] <fuzzie> i am hoping to make puppy eyes at mattinm and see if he can do something about the timing
[14:58:21] <fuzzie> and then start on the projectiles a bit
[14:58:27] <mattinm> hehe... from what i've seen, the timing is off in quite a few places
[14:58:30] <lynxlynxlynx> i started some work on combat feedback
[14:58:49] <lynxlynxlynx> since all games have different, i just decided for the best one - the one from iwd2
[14:59:03] <fuzzie> combat feedback?
[14:59:34] <lynxlynxlynx> %s did %d %s damage to %s
[14:59:38] <fuzzie> ah
[14:59:54] <fuzzie> i have "add bg2-style extra combat roll info" on my todo list, somewhere
[15:00:19] <fuzzie> (the http://fuzzie.org/dragonattack.png style stuff)
[15:00:27] <fuzzie> but i havent' seen what it's like in iwd2
[15:01:41] <lynxlynxlynx> that's extra, not sure how many people like that
[15:01:46] <mattinm> it's like a simple version of that
[15:02:10] <lynxlynxlynx> we have silly output now, only names or only criticals with no names
[15:02:18] <fuzzie> well, given that extra was sabotaged in the ToB engine i guess it's not very common, but i think it would be terribly helpful for comparing to the original engine
[15:02:38] <fuzzie> any kind of roll/damage output would be an improvement, though
[15:03:20] <lynxlynxlynx> yeah
[15:05:44] <fuzzie> ok, hometime
[15:28:02] <mattinm> fuzzie: when you get the chance, i need the strref for "hour" in pst
[15:32:15] <lynxlynxlynx> i'll get it
[15:32:28] <mattinm> thanks
[15:32:35] <mattinm> i just need the word itself
[15:33:35] <lynxlynxlynx> 19312
[15:33:40] <lynxlynxlynx> 19313 for Hours
[15:33:44] <mattinm> thanks
[16:09:49] <CIA-2> gemrb: 03mattinm * r6400 10/gemrb/trunk/gemrb/ (8 files in 8 dirs):
[16:09:49] <CIA-2> gemrb: now shows you have rested for x hours message on sleep
[16:09:49] <CIA-2> gemrb: provisionally set up for partial sleeps (not implemented)
[16:09:49] <CIA-2> gemrb: added requisite strrefs to strings.2da and strrefs.h
[16:13:39] <fuzzie> mattinm: did you look at the eff thing, or can I do it?
[16:14:07] <mattinm> fuzzie: you can do it if you want; i've got to go get some cleaning done, so i won't get a chance for an hour or so
[16:15:06] <fuzzie> trying the pst implementation is nice, but DisplayString is sort of a dead-end :)
[16:15:21] <fuzzie> v.nice to have the stringrefs though
[16:15:21] <mattinm> yeah, i wasn't sure about that one :/
[16:15:29] <fuzzie> so thanks
[16:15:42] <fuzzie> and that ModifyDamage is great now :)
[16:16:00] <mattinm> hehe; does what it's supposed to i suppose :)
[16:16:25] <mattinm> alrighty, i'll be back on in a little while; feel free to make the rest display correctly for pst ;)
[17:16:26] <fuzzie> mattinm: http://fuzzie.org/nfs/gemrb/eff_timingmode.txt seems sufficient'
[17:18:48] <fuzzie> i'm also a bit dubious about duration, though
[17:27:55] <mattinm> fuzzie: looks good
[17:29:52] <mattinm> i don't see how it would make the duration any different than it is now
[17:30:22] <fuzzie> oh, sure, the patch seems no worse there
[17:32:07] <fuzzie> i just wonder if our Duration is wrong, because in your save, it's very high
[17:32:22] <mattinm> i'll look at it in a moment
[17:32:25] <fuzzie> masked with 0xffff it's far more reasonable, and leaves 20 in the upper word
[17:32:50] <fuzzie> so i expect duration is also a word, and there's an intermediate word there.
[17:32:58] <mattinm> perhaps
[17:33:06] <mattinm> i wouldn't doubt it :)
[17:33:14] <fuzzie> but i have not tested :) let me commit the timingmode first
[17:33:47] <mattinm> yeah, that's probably best :)
[17:34:32] <CIA-2> gemrb: 03fuzzie * r6401 10/gemrb/trunk/gemrb/plugins/ (6 files in 4 dirs): TimingMode in effects is a single byte
[17:42:14] <fuzzie> maybe Avenger will come in now and explain that it was deliberate, but i think in any case this is a better design
[17:42:34] <fuzzie> all this anding magic for fields is not so great
[17:44:53] <mattinm> i agree; so long as all the fields are the same :)
[17:46:58] <fuzzie> my theory is that duration is a word, and that duration is multiplied by 15 to get AI updates when cast, but that is pretty much a blind guess
[17:47:53] <mattinm> i'm trying to think of the circumstances of my save :/
[17:48:03] <mattinm> how long the stoneskins were up
[17:48:29] <fuzzie> well, i'm probably not right :/
[17:48:45] <mattinm> well, it's something to test either way :)
[17:48:53] <fuzzie> how long does Stoneskin last?
[17:49:00] <mattinm> i'll go make a save where i know precisely how long it's been on
[17:49:03] <mattinm> 8 game hours
[17:51:40] <fuzzie> well, if that savegame has had stoneskin for ~5 game hours, my theory makes sense, but making guesses is kind of silly
[17:52:48] <fuzzie> i tried it myself and it looks like it's a word.
[17:53:31] <fuzzie> but i think i'm actually wrong because if you look at gemrb's PrepareDuration, it does fx->Duration = fx->Duration*AI_UPDATE_TIME + GameTime
[17:53:47] <fuzzie> and that would lead to absurdly high duration values, because duration in live effects is actually an expiry time :)
[17:54:03] <mattinm> hehe
[17:55:42] <fuzzie> yes indeed, if i remove the AI updates from the duration value it all makes sense. ok. :)
[17:55:59] <fuzzie> i think stoneskin should be fine now, in that case.
[17:57:14] <mattinm> i guess we'd have to check how we do stoneskin too :/... it's listed as having a time of 3600 in the spell
[17:57:41] <fuzzie> that seems to be 12 hours, by my math
[17:57:56] <fuzzie> so i'm confused if it's meant to be 8 :/
[17:58:19] <mattinm> perhaps it is actually 12, but they say 8 in the description
[17:58:52] <fuzzie> well, there are 300 real seconds in a game hour, and the effect duration pre-application is in real seconds, and 3600/300 = 12
[17:58:54] <mattinm> i know that it survives a rest if you rest shortly after casting
[17:59:11] <mattinm> and for a short while afterward
[17:59:31] <fuzzie> this spell guide i downloaded from sorcerors.net says 12h, so i guess we're fine
[17:59:40] <fuzzie> all makes sense, no need to panic :)
[17:59:43] <mattinm> hehe
[18:14:31] <lynxlynxlynx> yes, it's not 8
[18:25:28] <pupnik> watch this: iphone 3g software - fun starts at 0:50 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pBI5HwitBX4
[18:35:37] <fuzzie> alas, if only we could squeeze bg2 into 480x320 :)
[18:36:53] <pupnik> i find that really impressive
[18:36:56] <fuzzie> maybe it's possible, with a removed gui
[18:37:19] <lynxlynxlynx> blind typing
[18:37:37] <pupnik> i dislike the candy toy
[18:59:37] <mattinm> fuzzie: the saved stoneskins just hold the expiration time; if you take the [duration - (game time * 15)] the you have exactly what PrepareDuration would have given you
[18:59:41] <mattinm> which makes perfect sense
[19:01:17] <mattinm> which poses problems when getting the effect timing by byte, because we get zero, and the EffectQueue code thinks it has to PrepareDuration again :/
[19:02:43] <fuzzie> NeedPrepare/IsPrepared were using bytes anyway, i thought
[19:03:19] <fuzzie> yes indeed
[19:04:16] --> barra_away has joined #gemrb
[19:05:09] <fuzzie> so i don't understand how the TimingMode would have changed that
[19:06:42] <fuzzie> is there a bug there or are you just trying to figure it out?
[19:06:43] <mattinm> yep, it still works as expected
[19:06:48] <mattinm> just trying to figure it out
[19:06:57] <mattinm> to figure out why it doesn't mess up
[19:07:00] <fuzzie> i walked through the code and it seems to work 100% as expected once i realised how PrepareDuration worked
[19:07:21] <fuzzie> (the magic is that FX_DURATION_DELAY_LIMITED is transformed to FX_DURATION_DELAY_LIMITED_PENDING on application)
[19:07:45] <fuzzie> or, well, the FX_DURATION_INSTANT_LIMITED in this case? i forget, must run
[19:11:43] <mattinm> / when first_apply is unset, the effect is already on the target // this happens on load time too!
[19:12:20] <mattinm> that explains it right there; it never gets to the PrepareDuration because it correctly assumes this has already been done on load (well, on save i guess)
[19:20:20] <-- barra_library has left IRC (Read error: 113 (No route to host))
[19:36:19] <fuzzie> :)
[19:36:27] <fuzzie> so all is good?
[19:39:51] <fuzzie> i am wondering if Avenger will appear, he had some strange corruption issues and i don't know if they are fixed
[19:41:20] <fuzzie> otherwise I'll look at the animations, I guess.
[19:42:36] <pupnik> :)
[19:45:04] <fuzzie> sometime I need to revisit my changes to DoStep() and friends, it is really not the best place to play catch-up
[19:46:10] <fuzzie> because it doesn't take the searchmap into account and disaster ensues
[19:47:46] <fuzzie> but you can't just not play catch-up because then you break actor speed.
[19:54:29] --- barra_away is now known as barra_library
[19:55:28] <fuzzie> ok.. click level up, click special abilities, it gives you the mage book text? is that right?
[19:58:24] <lynxlynxlynx> unlikely
[19:58:48] <fuzzie> well, ok, it is not right :) but i don't know how this is meant to work
[20:01:34] <lynxlynxlynx> i'll look it up
[20:01:41] <lynxlynxlynx> need to create a tob dump first
[20:03:11] <fuzzie> i just loaded one of wjp's saves and played around a bit
[20:03:51] <fuzzie> various classes with >3m XP to level

[20:11:38] <lynxlynxlynx> mattinm: (up) interesting, huh?
[20:13:12] <lynxlynxlynx> fuzzie: i can't find anything with a few searches
[20:13:27] <lynxlynxlynx> looks like we'll have to look in the original
[20:13:53] <fuzzie> well, i can do that, if i'm given clear instructions
[20:15:11] <fuzzie> just check the text snippet?
[20:15:33] <lynxlynxlynx> find something wierd to grep, yes
[20:15:46] <lynxlynxlynx> if there is nothing, a part of a sentence will do
[20:17:14] <fuzzie> vmware has decided to ignore my mouse input, but as soon as it stops i will click the level up button...
[20:20:21] <fuzzie> hm, these are all capped at 2.95m XP in SoA, i thought that wasn't meant to happen
[20:23:32] <lynxlynxlynx> 2.95m is the soa cap
[20:23:39] <lynxlynxlynx> xplevel.2da iirc
[20:23:42] <fuzzie> removing the xpcap.2da from override just breaks it more, grr
[20:23:45] <danamin> Hi
[20:24:00] <danamin> does anyone know wether GemRB_CreateScrollBar realy works?
[20:24:40] <fuzzie> I think it's only been tested with bg2.
[20:25:02] <danamin> it segfaults on ScrollBar::Frames being zero
[20:26:33] <danamin> ah, I got the error
[20:26:35] <danamin> my bad
[20:32:29] <fuzzie> ok, so: Abilities button should only highlight once weapon proficiencies are done. text is "You may choose X abilities for your character", and the GUI is meant to have "ABILITIES" at the top, so I expect we're picking the wrong one.
[20:33:50] <lynxlynxlynx> #63817
[20:34:17] <fuzzie> yup, that's it. with 63818 as title.
[20:34:25] <lynxlynxlynx> we just use the gui from the chargen, so there is no need to remap all the controls
[20:34:29] <fuzzie> can you fix? the button seems to be meant to be on the other side too
[20:34:49] <fuzzie> but i guess that is not needed as a fix :)
[20:35:23] <lynxlynxlynx> need to cheat in some xp

[20:37:02] <fuzzie> by 'highlighted' i mean 'enabled', sorry
[20:37:08] <fuzzie> Avenger: hi! is svn any better for you?
[20:37:37] <Avenger> you mean, if i have the same bugs as yesterday?
[20:37:44] <fuzzie> yes
[20:38:10] <fuzzie> i am worried about them because i cannot reproduce, but i can't find any more corruption bugs
[20:40:05] <Avenger> hmm the yellow circle problem and the savegame problem are still ther
[20:41:02] <Avenger> character creation also bugs out, even for a fighter
[20:41:20] <Avenger> oh wait, i thought it is because of my file
[20:42:27] <Avenger> doh
[20:42:55] <fuzzie> well if you think you can reproduce anything without things in override/ i would appreciate a savegame :)
[20:43:02] <Avenger> ok it was still in the install dir
[20:43:30] <Avenger> ok, you can reproduce the bug with adding spaces after the default * in 25stweap.2da
[20:43:41] <Avenger> but i don't know if the original game would just as well bug out
[20:43:58] <Avenger> this is not a main path problem, just a border case :)
[20:44:03] <fuzzie> well, that is simple to try
[20:45:29] <Avenger> i found a good case for the yellow circle symbol
[20:45:38] <fuzzie> the original game seems fine with the spaces
[20:45:39] <Avenger> symptom i mean :)
[20:46:01] <Avenger> ok, then the 2da importer should strip trailing spaces from the default value?
[20:46:13] <fuzzie> yes, that goes on the todo list :)
[20:47:31] <Avenger> meh, 10 minutes waiting on thunderbird going through the files in the override ;)
[20:50:02] <Avenger> ok pocketplane.zip sent
[20:50:17] <fuzzie> thanks, got it
[20:51:51] <CIA-2> gemrb: 03lynxlupodian * r6402 10/gemrb/trunk/gemrb/GUIScripts/bg2/LUHLASelection.py: bg2: ammend the HLA selection window title and starting textarea text
[20:52:55] <fuzzie> Avenger: that is a ToB save?
[20:55:23] <fuzzie> i guess it is an SoA save, ok
[20:56:54] <fuzzie> it seems normal here :/
[21:01:51] <fuzzie> time for valgrind
[21:02:33] <Avenger> Imoen doesn't get a yellow circle and say she gotta run?
[21:02:46] <fuzzie> nope
[21:03:33] <-- pupnik has left IRC (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
[21:06:40] <CIA-2> gemrb: 03lynxlupodian * r6403 10/gemrb/trunk/gemrb/GUIScripts/bg2/GUIINV.py: bg2: fixed most of the item splitting gui bugs - no more flickering
[21:11:07] <fuzzie> ok, valgrind is perfectly happy loading Avenger's save
[21:11:49] <fuzzie> but if Avenger has a fixpack installed then it might well be a fix for Imoen's script, if she came from SoA start area
[21:12:23] <Avenger> she doesn't become yellow circled when i load this in the original game
[21:12:40] <Avenger> also, sarevok becomes yellow in another game, and he just gets summoned!
[21:15:36] <Avenger> illasera's blindness thingie seems to be truly permanent
[21:15:40] <Avenger> hmm
[21:16:06] <lynxlynxlynx> were you here when we were talking about resetchr?
[21:16:09] <fuzzie> Avenger: original ToB casts resetchr.spl at you to fix that. it is a permanent 'remove effects' spell :/
[21:16:46] <lynxlynxlynx> yeah, without the patch you trade permanent blindness for permanent effectlessness
[21:16:56] <Avenger> i still fight, but the rabid dogs and illasera cannot kill me ;)
[21:16:58] <fuzzie> i think we are perhaps missing something in timing modes (the byte/word after it in Effect)
[21:17:18] <Avenger> it is a complete stalemate without me seeing anything
[21:17:29] <lynxlynxlynx> i can kill them when blind
[21:17:44] <lynxlynxlynx> but i did also get everyone invulnerable a few times
[21:17:46] <Avenger> i don't hit them
[21:18:19] <fuzzie> Avenger: all i can suggest about the yellow circles is to put a printf on Actor.cpp:602, and see whether pcf_morale is triggering the panic or whether it is a script
[21:18:39] <-- danamin has left IRC ()
[21:19:40] <fuzzie> i guess Actor.cpp:2227 is the culprit
[21:20:58] <fuzzie> passing -1 like that does not work on 64-bit.
[21:23:12] <fuzzie> Avenger: can you comment that out and see?
[21:23:22] <Avenger> i can try
[21:23:38] <Avenger> but no one hits imoen
[21:23:53] <Avenger> i will just add some debug printf
[21:26:46] <Avenger> btw, i ran valgrind for a long time, there is a leak in the action object, created by TryToAttack
[21:26:57] <Avenger> it is now the most serious leak i see
[21:27:13] <Avenger> ==30684== 342,968 (191,424 direct, 151,544 indirect) bytes
[21:27:25] <Avenger> in 997 blocks :)
[21:28:45] <Avenger> hmm it isn't the whole action, just an object in it!
[21:29:38] <fuzzie> that is because of the silly GenerateActionDirect hack, i think
[21:29:51] <fuzzie> because you don't actually pass a parameter to the action
[21:29:57] <Avenger> ah no, it is the whole action
[21:30:01] <fuzzie> i had a look but couldn't work out how to fix
[21:30:07] <Avenger> GenerateActionCore
[21:30:23] <fuzzie> but i am more worried about the panic thing :) leaks can be fixed any time
[21:31:23] <fuzzie> and if you're here, I should ask if you could make a patch with your window-flickering attempt so I can have a look
[21:33:18] <Avenger> meh:[Inventory]: Invalid slot: 38!
[21:33:20] <Avenger> Aborted
[21:33:53] <Avenger> i just equipped a mace in an empty weapon slot
[21:34:10] <fuzzie> we have been slowly fixing those, but at the source, because we don't want to hide problems
[21:34:23] <Avenger> yes
[21:34:28] <Avenger> that's why that abort is there :)
[21:34:33] <Avenger> to force fixes :D
[21:34:38] <fuzzie> yes exactly :)
[21:35:59] <fuzzie> do you know which mace?
[21:37:09] <Avenger> i wanted to sayflail of ages
[21:37:41] <Avenger> i got it from the bag, and equipped into the empty 4. slot of a fighter just generated
[21:37:59] <Avenger> then went to the main game screen, swapped to arbane's sword, then back to the flail
[21:38:26] <Avenger> back to the yellow circle case, pcf_morale is called, but not by that (iedword) -1
[21:39:05] <fuzzie> check Actor.cpp:1924? but surely that can do no harm
[21:40:02] <fuzzie> so other than that it is just effects/actions
[21:40:06] <Avenger> yes, that's what i thought
[21:41:36] <Avenger> ok, the problem seems to be that something sets the morale to 20, then it falls back to 10 in the AI cycle, and this fall is considered big
[21:41:41] <lynxlynxlynx> Avenger: aborting on items is easily achieved by equipping one with special abilities - if you use the abilitiy from the action bar's bag icon
[21:42:40] <fuzzie> hm, i think only an effect would mess with the morale like that?
[21:42:59] <fuzzie> strange that it doesn't happen here, though, so perhaps it is a script that i don't have
[21:43:54] <fuzzie> 40: 0x6a: MoraleBreakModifier (0, 1) S:
[21:44:24] <Avenger> the max value was set to 10, maybe it should have been 20
[21:44:47] <fuzzie> strange that it doesn't happen here though!
[21:45:30] <Avenger> yes strange
[21:45:36] <fuzzie> well, if you have latest svn
[21:45:41] <Avenger> i have
[21:46:11] <fuzzie> effect timings in original savegames were broken until r6401
[21:46:17] <Avenger> i don't know what is the maximum value for morale
[21:46:21] <fuzzie> which led to some strange happenings
[21:46:45] <fuzzie> Avenger: it is higher than 10..
[21:47:23] <fuzzie> hm, actually, i don't know for bg2.
[21:52:27] <fuzzie> my notes say it is 20 in pst
[21:52:54] <fuzzie> because there was a stupid bug where the original pst engine would wrap negative morale values to max morale (20)
[21:54:53] <fuzzie> of course pst has this wonderful bug where it resets morale to 10 on rest, ruining all the dialogs/banters which depend on it
[21:55:11] <fuzzie> stupid original engine :)
[21:56:44] <Avenger> in bg2 there are 2 things: morale that controls fear, and happiness that is more like what PST wants to do with Dakkon's morale
[21:57:19] <fuzzie> the pst fixpack hacks the engine to add another morale stat, i think i will probably add that as an option
[21:57:56] <fuzzie> but this is not very relevant, sorry, i just wanted to explain why i knew it was 20 in pst :)
[21:58:39] <Avenger> it is relevant, it says that at least for pst i should raise it to 20 :)
[21:58:59] <Avenger> i gotta sleep now
[21:59:02] <fuzzie> night!
[21:59:04] <Avenger> stupid work :)
[21:59:16] <Avenger> i had to work on sunday, hopefully not this weekend
[21:59:27] <-- Avenger has left IRC ("bye!")
[22:05:37] <lynxlynxlynx> re songlist.2da being loaded over and over again
[22:06:01] <lynxlynxlynx> why is that function called so often in the first place? It's not like the music changes so fast
[22:07:05] <fuzzie> because i have no better way of telling whether there should be music playing or not
[22:07:35] <fuzzie> and in theory it should be a trivial lookup taking no meaningful time
[22:08:01] <fuzzie> only at the time, i didn't realise the code reloaded the table every time
[22:08:43] <fuzzie> you could easily reduce the frequency by only doing it so many ticks, i just want to find some time to fix it properly
[22:12:32] <lynxlynxlynx> ok
