[17:57:09] <Avenger> hi
[17:57:51] <Avenger> edheldil: which games you tested the autodetector on?
[17:59:58] <Avenger> if you tested it on the majority, and it works with all, then just commit it :) I would still just write this in the core without any guiscript dependency. I think there is no need of this high flexibility, but if it works, then we don't need any better :)
[18:07:19] --> SiENcE has joined #GemRb
[18:17:07] <edheldil> Avenger: bg1, bg2, how, pst
[18:17:27] <edheldil> anyway, until someone uses GameType=auto, it will not be used
[18:17:29] <Avenger> well, if it works with them then commit away :)
[18:17:42] <Avenger> i guess you'll use it from now on :P
[18:18:27] <Avenger> and it will definitely be used by the redistributors, one less setting to care about is good
[18:19:11] <fuzzie> changing the default config would be a good idea if you do commit
[18:19:12] <edheldil> possibly, but I have no problems with using config files. It was meant as a step in simplyfying config files. If it works well, we could set GameType=auto as a default and comment out the param in sample config file
[18:23:42] <edheldil> which one do you prefer? Setting GameType=auto in the config file, or setting the default value in core and comment out the setting in the config?
[18:24:19] <edheldil> The preferred one is certainly the latter, but maybe not yet?
[18:24:39] <Avenger> not yet, yeah
[18:25:10] <Avenger> setting the default in core to auto is fine
[18:25:34] <Avenger> that wouldn't cause any problem that didn't exist before :)
[18:26:28] <edheldil> set the core value and leave config as is?
[18:26:33] <Avenger> yes
[18:26:47] <Avenger> that is safe for all
[18:27:14] <Avenger> also add the comment in config that auto is supposed to work for all
[18:28:29] <Avenger> if it works for some time without reports (most notably works for redistributors) then we can one day just delete the line from the config files
[18:28:43] <edheldil> ok, will do.
[18:28:58] <edheldil> I think it will be better to leave it commented out
[18:29:03] <edheldil> in the future
[18:29:14] <Avenger> i won't touch it at all :)
[18:30:05] --> |Cable| has joined #GemRb
[18:33:12] <edheldil> btw, is it better to play just the HoW expansion or the whole IWD+HoW? For some values of 'better', of course
[18:34:06] <Avenger> what do you mean? i always played the whole game, playing just the expansion is not too satisfying
[18:34:50] <Avenger> even if your intention is just general HoW testing, it is better to play the whole
[18:34:59] <Avenger> unless you want to test the expansion only support
[18:35:10] <edheldil> ah, ok
[18:37:40] <fuzzie> just as long as you do have HoW+TotL installed :P
[18:38:30] <edheldil> I was thinking about comparing How under GemRB and wine, unfortunately under wine it needs CD, and I might not have a space for ISO image. Bad luck that I do not have a cracked version :)
[18:41:15] <Maighstir> make a mini image, you actually only need a single file from the cd
[18:43:46] <Maighstir> if you make a full install of IWD+expansion, you can make a working image bu just copying CD2/Data/IWDCD.2 and CD3/Data/IWDCD.3 - put both in the same iso and it should satisfy the cd requests for both the original and expansion

[18:50:30] <edheldil> Thanks for the tip
[18:52:55] <Maighstir> A mini image I made for all IE games is just over 100 MB, and that's mostly due to PS:T looking for a 60 MB file
[18:57:42] --> edheldil_ has joined #GemRb
[19:05:15] <edheldil> is the policy on commits to merge the commits to a single commit first?
[19:05:42] <fuzzie> i think it is, do whatever you want :)
[19:18:25] <Avenger> can't you just put 0 length files on the cd?

[19:21:50] <CIA-36> GemRB: Autodetect GameType if it is set to "auto"
[19:21:50] <CIA-36> GemRB: If the GameType is set to 'auto', run Autodetect.py scripts of all gametypes
[19:21:50] <CIA-36> GemRB: early during GemRB startup, so that they can change GameType to what they detect.
[19:21:51] <CIA-36> GemRB: Set the default GameType to auto
[19:21:51] <CIA-36> GemRB: Leave the config files GameType as is for now, but mention 'auto' in the comments
