[11:26:31] <lynxlynxlynx> brad: all games look fine
[11:26:53] <lynxlynxlynx> didn't try any new fonts though, but that is not game dependant anyway

[17:47:15] <brad_a> lynx: i tested TTF fonts last night and ha to rebase to correct for when i had to rename a loop variable for msvc6, but after that it worked as intended.
[17:47:22] <brad_a> so are we ready to merge?
[17:47:45] <lynxlynxlynx> yes
[17:48:02] <lynxlynxlynx> the cmake and tables bugs were fixed
[17:48:07] <lynxlynxlynx> didn't see anything else
[18:01:26] <brad_a> so git checkout master then git merge fonts?
[18:01:37] <brad_a> or should i do a pull first?
[18:01:58] <lynxlynxlynx> shouldn't matter
[18:02:12] <lynxlynxlynx> pull=fetch+merge and master has not changed in your areas
[18:03:29] <brad_a> ok no conflicts with the merge let see about the pull
[18:03:56] <brad_a> cool
[18:04:02] <brad_a> so just push now i assume
[18:04:13] <Yoshimo> msvc6, does that cause a lot of issues?
[18:04:26] <brad_a> the only issues ive had with it are with loops
[18:04:40] <brad_a> and reusing a variable such as i
[18:05:11] <fuzzie> the trouble is that msvc6 predates the c++ standard
[18:05:42] <fuzzie> i think the only serious bug we've had with it is the template folding optimisation, which was worked around
[18:06:49] <CIA-41> GemRB: 03bradallred * r0f28b7a93b57 10gemrb/gemrb/core/Interface.cpp: Interface: create a palette for non-BAM fonts with a color specified in fonts.2da.

[18:07:21] <CIA-41> GemRB: CustomFontPath also acts as a flag for using non-BAM fonts so leave unset unless you wish to use an alternative font loader.
[18:07:21] <CIA-41> GemRB: Remember to edit fonts.2da with the name->resref mapping.
[18:07:21] <CIA-41> GemRB: 03bradallred * rd2ffefea325f 10gemrb/gemrb/ (4 files in 4 dirs):

[18:07:49] <lynxlynxlynx> :)
[18:08:02] <brad_a> yay a huge weight has been lifted from me :)
[18:08:17] <brad_a> still plenty of font work to be done tho
[18:11:54] <brad_a> thanks everybody for the help :)
[18:13:10] <Yoshimo> so what diffrence should a average user notice after compiling the new revision? ;)
[18:13:25] <lynxlynxlynx> none
[18:14:39] <Yoshimo> so why did brad do it then?
[18:14:56] <brad_a> added a TTF plugin
[18:15:22] <brad_a> so for compiling i guess the diffrence is that you need both freetype2 and sdl_ttf libraries
[18:15:30] <brad_a> but its an optional plugin
[18:16:20] <brad_a> yoshimo: http://gemrb.sourceforge.net/wiki/doku.php?id=plugins:ttf
[18:16:52] <brad_a> not super usefull for running on a PC but very elcome addition to mobile devices
[18:19:27] <brad_a> it does in essence obsolete the need for any big text mod
[18:28:28] <lynxlynxlynx> it's opt-in, that's why nobody should notice anything
[18:52:58] <Yoshimo> being level 7 at the beginning of a bgt install, how important is that?
[18:53:43] <brad_a> explain
[18:53:56] <brad_a> shouldnt you want to be lvl 1?
[18:56:57] <Yoshimo> worded a bit wrong, right now if i start it from the beginning of candlekeep im awarded the xp for a bg2 start, which puts me at level 7 already
[18:57:04] <Yoshimo> and the balance is not given then
[18:57:33] <lynxlynxlynx> this again?
[18:57:37] <brad_a> you are supposed to edit the bg2 2da for starting exp
[18:57:52] <Yoshimo> yes lynx
[18:59:14] <brad_a> or convince the BGT makers to support gemrb automatically
[19:01:58] <tomprince> You need to change one of the columns of one of the 2das all to 1s.
