[17:59:21] <brada> psch: here?
[18:03:51] <psch> yeah
[18:04:51] <brada> working on formation rotation
[18:10:32] <brada> you got time to test?
[18:10:55] <psch> a bit, yeah
[18:10:59] <psch> 'bout an hour at most
[18:11:26] <brada> hopefully i didnt break too much :p
[18:13:31] <brada> psch: http://paste.debian.net/7389/
[18:13:32] <Pepelka> debian Pastezone
[18:14:48] <brada> just try the rotation there
[18:14:59] <brada> i already know the viewport scrolling is temporarily broken
[18:15:46] <psch> alright
[18:25:06] <psch> only issue i'm seeing is from focus change, after selecting a different formation
[18:25:39] <psch> but that's only tangentially related
[18:26:00] <brada> so it is working?
[18:26:05] <psch> yeah, works great
[18:26:06] <brada> sweet
[18:26:10] <brada> time to figure out a way to reconcile viewport scrolling with it
[18:32:14] <brada> im really unsure how to do this :/
[18:32:56] <brada> the sdl "theta" is seemingly buggy
[18:33:36] <brada> i dont feel i should be getting any rotation when both fingers move perfectly horizontal / vertical in sync
[18:34:55] <psch> you should definitely give the user some leeway, i feel, seeing as i'm already having trouble with some gestures
[18:35:16] <psch> but if the actual sdl code that should give you the option for an easy error margin isn't working that's kinda bad
[18:35:18] <brada> such as?
[18:36:02] <psch> well, for one, slight movement of the pivot shouldn't cause scrolling; similarly, slight rotation during scrolling should cause formation rotation
[18:36:26] <brada> right now scrolling is disabled
[18:36:37] <brada> so how you are getting it is beyond me
[18:37:02] <psch> i'm not getting any scrolling, i'm just trying to be helpful wrt things to consider
[18:37:11] <psch> but this is probably way to high-level and not really helpful
[18:38:06] <brada> well id like to know what problems you have
[18:38:16] <psch> i'm not having any problems, rotation works great
[18:38:46] <brada> i mean with other gestures / touches
[18:38:59] <brada> maybe MIN_GESTURE_DELTA_PIXELS needs to be larger
[18:41:10] <brada> time to update my libsdl tho
[18:41:51] <psch> i'm getting a crash for 3 finger swipe
[18:42:00] <psch> i'll rebuild with fresh sdl as well
[18:43:59] <brada> i fixed that crash
[18:44:31] <brada> unless you mean without that test patch
[18:44:39] <psch> no, it's with the patch
[18:54:36] <brada> this theta is seemingly random
[19:09:12] <brada> psch: http://paste.debian.net/7400/
[19:09:13] <Pepelka> debian Pastezone
[19:09:19] <brada> hopefully that works
[19:09:28] <brada> cuz i cant really test the rotation in simulator
[19:16:39] <brada> psch: i dont seem to have broken anything
[19:16:42] <brada> afict
[19:20:01] --> rocket_hamster has joined #gemrb
[19:20:33] <psch> scrolling still works well, which is a step in the right direction i guess
[19:20:35] <psch> formation rotation is a bit borked
[19:20:55] <psch> as in, the actual "move" command seems to get sent to the first finger going up
[19:21:00] <psch> or rather, its location
[19:21:14] <psch> without the rotation applied
[19:21:44] <psch> i can't 100% choose input between scrolling and rotating, but that's minor in comparison to "they don't move where i rotated"
[19:27:21] <brada> the trick is to trigger a rotation the first finger down (the anchor) cant move more than 5 px
[19:28:20] <brada> you dont want to move the first finger down for this gesture if that wasnt clear
[19:28:32] <brada> second finger controls the pivot
[19:28:44] <brada> (or do i have my terms backwards?)
[19:28:59] <psch> which means that touching both fingers at the same time with the intent to scroll doesn't scroll
[19:30:51] <psch> in general, i understand how it should work
[19:30:54] <psch> i'm not sure how the interaction between rotation and scrolling should work
[19:31:21] <brada> well have to pick this up tomorrow
[19:31:25] <psch> because as it is now you have to move the first finger down before bringing the second down, or you get rotating
[19:31:40] <psch> yeah, sure

[21:25:42] <Karst> Hello, trying to set up gemrb and having some problems, using the How To guide found here: http://forums.gibberlings3.net/index.php?s=ec73bcc8594df8f5c466fc790d0455e0&showtopic=13087&st=0&p=112318&#entry112318 and I am on step#5 but I simply do not know what it means when it says "MinGW Makefiles"
[21:25:43] <Pepelka> HOWTO : easy way to build GemRB on windows - The Gibberlings Three Forums
[21:25:44] <Pepelka> »VISIT THIS PAGE FOR AN UP-TO-DATE GUIDE! This topic is the result of my work to compile GemRB on windows. It uses the CMake and MinGW tools. N...«
[21:26:44] <wjp> type that command entirely literally
[21:30:02] <Karst> I get a CMake error, perhaps I made a mistake in step#4, set PATH=%PATH%;c:\mingw\bin;c:\mingw\include;c:\mingw\lib;c:\mingw\include\SDL;c:\mingw\include\AL; cd "Where you put the gemrb source code" start cmd
[21:30:25] <Karst> I changed 'where you put the gemrb sourcecode' to C:\Users\Username\trunk\gemrb
[21:31:49] <wjp> are you sure you want to compile gemrb from source?
[21:32:43] <Karst> no, I was not aware there was a different or easier way to do it
[21:33:51] <Karst> I am trying to install GemRB so that I may run Icewinddale and BG2 on Win7 64bit
[21:35:07] <Karst> I was following the instructions from here http://www.gemrb.org/wiki/doku.php?id=install:windows except when I got to step4 I did not have the necessary AL libraries, and realized maybe I was supposed to do the How To guide beforehand
[21:35:08] <Pepelka> install:windows [GemRB wiki]
[21:36:12] <wjp> there should be windows binaries here: https://sourceforge.net/projects/gemrb/files/GemRB%20Win32%20Binaries/GemRB%20v0.8.0/
[21:36:14] <Pepelka> GemRB Game Engine - Browse /GemRB Win32 Binaries/GemRB v0.8.0 at SourceForge.net
[21:36:15] <Pepelka> »GemRB is a portable open-source implementation of the Infinity Engine«
[21:38:27] <Karst> I have that, perhaps I was doing fine and just needed to proceed with step #6, I'm not sure this is all a bit beyond my skills
[21:38:58] <brada> if you have the binary then you dont need to build yourself
[21:40:12] <brada> we still dont build the TTF plugin unfortunately :/
[21:40:32] <brada> would be nice if tomprince added it :)
[21:41:53] <Karst> I dont understand step7, Fetch the GemRB Source? I navigate to the 'empty source directory' but it isn't empty at all
[21:42:11] <rocket_hamster> Karst, just download gemrb from https://sourceforge.net/projects/gemrb/files/GemRB%20Win32%20Binaries/GemRB%20v0.8.0/

[21:42:14] <Pepelka> »GemRB is a portable open-source implementation of the Infinity Engine«
[21:42:25] <rocket_hamster> those steps are for people who want to compile gemrb from source code
[21:42:29] <rocket_hamster> which you dont need to do
[21:42:29] <wjp> can somebody please turn Pepelka off?
[21:42:38] <wjp> those link expansions are annoying
[21:43:15] <Karst> I have rocket_hamster, I dont understand, is that all I need to run GemRB?
[21:43:23] <wjp> yes
[21:44:08] <wjp> there's a gemrb.exe in there
[21:44:24] <Karst> so I extract that to C drive or? does it matter
[21:44:25] <rocket_hamster> Karst, you will also need game data from original baldurs gate
[21:44:31] <Karst> I have the games
[21:44:34] <rocket_hamster> ok
[21:44:40] <Karst> they just crash
[21:45:17] <Karst> what do I do with the gemrb.exe? nothing happens when I run it
[21:46:03] <rocket_hamster> you need set up GemRB.cfg i believe
[21:46:09] <rocket_hamster> first
[21:46:50] <rocket_hamster> http://www.gemrb.org/wiki/doku.php?id=installation&s[]=gemrb&s[]=cfg#configuring_gemrb
[21:46:53] <Pepelka> installation [GemRB wiki]
[21:47:01] <rocket_hamster> see Configuring gemrb
[21:47:40] <rocket_hamster> there are game data paths you need to set in gemrb.cfg
[21:48:09] <rocket_hamster> they have to be set to the directory that has baldurs gate original installed
[21:48:15] <rocket_hamster> just edit it in text editor
[21:52:41] <Karst> GamePath=C:\Program Files (x86)\Black Isle\Icewind Dale should it look like that?
[21:53:05] <rocket_hamster> yes
[21:53:06] <Karst> and GameType=how
[21:53:15] <rocket_hamster> icwd
[21:53:17] <rocket_hamster> i believe
[21:53:18] <rocket_hamster> sec
[21:53:33] <rocket_hamster> iwd
[21:54:00] <Karst> I do have heart of winter installed
[21:54:16] <rocket_hamster> it shouldnt make much difference on game type
[21:54:23] <rocket_hamster> GamePath is more important
[21:54:26] <Karst> is this correct GamePath=C:\Program Files (x86)\Black Isle\Icewind Dale CD1=C:\Program Files (x86)\Black Isle\Icewind Dale CD2=C:\Program Files (x86)\Black Isle\Icewind Dale\CD2 CD3=C:\Program Files (x86)\Black Isle\Icewind Dale\CD3 CD4= CD5=
[21:54:46] <rocket_hamster> CD should be GamePath\data
[21:54:53] <rocket_hamster> from my experience with baldurs gate
[21:55:04] <rocket_hamster> CD=C:\Program Files (x86)\Black Isle\Icewind Dale\data
[21:55:11] <rocket_hamster> for all CDs just to be sure
[21:55:22] <rocket_hamster> CD1 - CD5
[21:55:34] <Karst> yes I see, ah okay
[21:55:43] <rocket_hamster> try to run it then and tell me if it worked
[21:57:30] <lynxlynxlynx_> lupine: i don't think anyone tried yet
[21:57:39] <Karst> how do I run it? sorry :( the Icewind_Dale.cfg is still in the GemRB-v0.8.0 folder
[21:57:56] <rocket_hamster> just run gemrb.exe again
[21:58:08] <rocket_hamster> and rename Icewind_Dale.cfg to GemRB.cfg
[21:58:21] <lynxlynxlynx_> lupine: shouldn't be that hard to make work though, i think the gui format is still roughly the same
[21:58:45] <lynxlynxlynx_> rocket_hamster: he should use 'how' if he has how
[21:58:52] <lynxlynxlynx_> a very good upgrade
[21:59:07] <lynxlynxlynx_> iwd vs how is a bit like bg1 vs bg2
[21:59:20] <rocket_hamster> really?
[21:59:24] <lynxlynxlynx_> yep
[21:59:25] <rocket_hamster> wow didnt play that
[21:59:27] <rocket_hamster> only original
[21:59:43] <lynxlynxlynx_> it's a shortish addon, but the engine changed a lot
[22:00:04] <Karst> hmm nothing happens
[22:00:30] <rocket_hamster> did you rename Icewind_Dale.cfg to GemRB.cfg?
[22:00:34] <Karst> I run gem RB and it sits there
[22:00:34] <Karst> if I hit enter to continue, nothing happens
[22:00:51] <rocket_hamster> yes thats because it doesnt know where to look for game data
[22:00:51] <Karst> when I edited the cfg
[22:01:11] <Karst> I made a copy of gemrb.cfg.sample, renamed it to Icewind_Dale.cfg, edited that, then back to GemRB.cfg
[22:01:19] <Karst> perhaps I was supposed to edit the gemrb.cfg and not the sample?
[22:01:19] <rocket_hamster> yes good
[22:01:34] <rocket_hamster> do you know how to open windows command line?
[22:01:37] <Karst> yes
[22:01:41] <rocket_hamster> k open it
[22:01:46] <Karst> k
[22:01:51] <rocket_hamster> and go to directory where you have your gemrb installed
[22:01:53] <rocket_hamster> in command line
[22:02:11] <Karst> its not 'installed' the folder is just on my desktop, is there a difference?
[22:02:16] <rocket_hamster> np
[22:02:25] <rocket_hamster> just go to the folder
[22:02:51] <Karst> kk
[22:02:55] <Karst> I am there
[22:03:09] <rocket_hamster> ok not type gemrb.exe -c GemRB.cfg
[22:03:13] <rocket_hamster> now*
[22:04:00] <Karst> Core, Config, Core, Core, PluginMgr, then Core/Fatal Plugin Loading Failed, check path...
[22:04:11] <rocket_hamster> ok so path is still wrong
[22:04:32] <rocket_hamster> hmm w8
[22:04:40] <rocket_hamster> do you see GemRB.log?
[22:04:43] <Karst> maybe I edited the wrong cfg
[22:04:54] <Karst> I do not
[22:04:59] <lupine> lynxlynxlynx_, there's a note on the wiki saying it "should" work from 0.7
[22:05:13] <lupine> I'm going to give it a try in a minute
[22:05:14] <rocket_hamster> i should be where you have gemrb.exe
[22:05:45] <lynxlynxlynx_> lupine: i know, i added it, but i think it's written less certainly now
[22:05:53] <Karst> no GemRB.log, hmm
[22:06:10] <lynxlynxlynx_> we can try to solve stuff as it comes along
[22:06:51] <rocket_hamster> hmm
[22:06:52] <lynxlynxlynx_> movies maybe won't work and maybe you'll have to convert some files with dltcep
[22:07:18] <Karst> extend2da, GemRB.cfg [the one I made], gemrb.cfg (2).sample [the original GemRB.cfg that I renamed], GemRB.cfg.noinstall.sample, GemRB.cfg.sample, gemrb.desktop, gemrb.exe, gemrb icon, gemrb ie icon, then a bunch of .dll
[22:07:24] <Lightkey> shouldn't it spam as to where gemrb is lloking for the data files?
[22:07:53] <rocket_hamster> Karst, can you upload your GemRB.cfg to somewhere on internet
[22:07:56] <rocket_hamster> so i can look at it
[22:08:01] <Karst> maybe I should delete everything, extract it again and try again?, sure
[22:08:02] <lynxlynxlynx_> check if PluginPath is . in the config
[22:08:03] <rocket_hamster> pastebin for example
[22:08:05] <Karst> the one I edited right?
[22:08:08] <rocket_hamster> yes
[22:08:43] <Karst> file:///C:/Users/Karst/Desktop/GemRB.cfg
[22:08:50] <Lightkey> hehe
[22:08:51] <rocket_hamster> that wont help :D
[22:09:18] <rocket_hamster> try http://pastebin.com/
[22:09:19] <Pepelka> Pastebin.com - #1 paste tool since 2002!
[22:09:20] <Pepelka> »Pastebin.com is the number one paste tool since 2002. Pastebin is a website where you can store text online for a set period of time.«
[22:10:25] <Karst> http://pastebin.com/WTXqetH3
[22:10:26] <Pepelka> Karstcfg - Pastebin.com
[22:10:27] <Karst> howbout that?
[22:10:52] <rocket_hamster> a lot better
[22:10:54] <rocket_hamster> :)
[22:11:39] <rocket_hamster> CD2=C:\Program Files (x86)\Black Isle\Icewind Dale\CD2\data should be CD2=C:\Program Files (x86)\Black Isle\Icewind Dale\data
[22:11:51] <lynxlynxlynx_> uncomment PluginsPath and fix it if doesn't point to where you have gemrb (current dir i guess)
[22:12:20] <lynxlynxlynx_> CD2 is fine
[22:12:56] <rocket_hamster> also maybe copying gemrb.exe to C:/Program Files/GemRB-v0.8.0 might help
[22:13:08] <rocket_hamster> and GemRB.cfg with it
[22:13:13] <Karst> oh ok
[22:13:28] <lynxlynxlynx_> either that or fix the path
[22:13:36] <lynxlynxlynx_> move the whole dir obviously
[22:15:03] <Karst> 'uncomment PluginsPath' I dont understand what that menas
[22:15:53] <lynxlynxlynx_> pick who you will listen to first :)
[22:16:24] <rocket_hamster> Karst, have you moves gemrb files to C:/Program Files/GemRB-v0.8.0
[22:16:29] <rocket_hamster> moved*
[22:17:44] <Karst> yes
[22:17:59] <rocket_hamster> ok good tried running gemrb.exe yet?
[22:18:16] <Karst> it does not work, but I have not fixed the paths yet
[22:18:45] <rocket_hamster> if you moved to C:/Program Files/GemRB-v0.8.0 you shouldnt have to fix paths
[22:18:51] <rocket_hamster> just game data paths
[22:19:15] <rocket_hamster> game data = stuff from original game
[22:20:25] <Karst> I cannot edit GemRB.cfg it says save failed please check if this file is opened in another program
[22:20:41] <rocket_hamster> yes pretty self explanatory :)
[22:21:07] <Karst> so I would think but nothing else is open
[22:21:44] <rocket_hamster> try opening GemRB.cfg as admin
[22:21:49] <Karst> just
[22:21:51] <rocket_hamster> if you know how
[22:21:51] <Karst> CD2
[22:21:53] <Karst> or all of them
[22:22:31] <rocket_hamster> GamePath=C:/Program Files (x86)/Black Isle/Icewind Dale
[22:22:53] <rocket_hamster> CD1=GamePath=C:/Program Files (x86)/Black Isle/Icewind Dale/data
[22:23:17] <rocket_hamster> and all other CDs same
[22:23:19] <rocket_hamster> as CD1
[22:23:37] <rocket_hamster> also what you have in C:/Program Files (x86)/Black Isle/Icewind Dale
[22:23:43] <rocket_hamster> i mean what directories
[22:24:13] <Karst> Cache, CD2, CD3, Characters, Data, Music, Override, Override_BAK, Scripts, Sounds, Temp, Tempsave
[22:24:57] <rocket_hamster> i see
[22:25:02] <rocket_hamster> thne you were right
[22:25:09] <rocket_hamster> with CD2 and CD3
[22:25:18] <Karst> GamePath=C:/Program Files (x86)/Black Isle/Icewind Dale/CD2/data like that?
[22:25:24] <rocket_hamster> nono
[22:25:31] <rocket_hamster> GamePath=C:/Program Files (x86)/Black Isle/Icewind Dale
[22:25:41] <rocket_hamster> CD1=GamePath=C:/Program Files (x86)/Black Isle/Icewind Dale/data
[22:25:51] <rocket_hamster> CD2=GamePath=C:/Program Files (x86)/Black Isle/Icewind Dale/CD2/data
[22:25:58] <rocket_hamster> CD3=GamePath=C:/Program Files (x86)/Black Isle/Icewind Dale/CD3/data
[22:26:45] <rocket_hamster> and then again from command line go into directory with gemrb.exe and type gemrb.exe -c GemRB.cfg
[22:28:15] <Karst> failed again, question
[22:28:31] <Karst> should the GemRB fold be in Program Files, or Program Files (x86), it is currently in Program Files
[22:29:15] <rocket_hamster> hmm im not really sure to be honest, can you copy output from console to paste bin?
[22:29:28] <rocket_hamster> its a bit hard but doable
[22:29:38] <rocket_hamster> sometimes it doesnt copy the text from console

[23:01:45] <Karst> im actually going through IWD to see if I crash at all, I crashed constnatly in BG2, couldn't get past the first room, dont know if it'll be the same or not for IWD:HOW
[23:02:13] <lynxlynxlynx_> so it worked at some point?
[23:02:15] <rocket_hamster> well the problem we have now is not the game but gemrb
[23:02:25] <rocket_hamster> gemrb wont load plugins on windows
[23:02:30] <lynxlynxlynx_> if you get crashes there it means something is wrong with the build most likel
[23:02:41] <rocket_hamster> lynx gemrb wont load plugins
[23:02:56] <rocket_hamster> it wont even read gemrb.cfg
[23:03:07] <rocket_hamster> maybe ill try running it from Users dir
[23:03:16] <rocket_hamster> instead of program files

[23:26:50] <Pepelka> ##################################################### # - Pastebin.com
[23:26:53] <rocket_hamster> it should work
[23:32:05] <Karst> hmm
[23:32:19] <Karst> still no chitin.key
[23:33:33] <Karst> says Invlaid path warning earlier
[23:33:57] <Lightkey> means the path to the game data is still wrong
[23:34:23] <rocket_hamster> yes
[23:34:37] <Lightkey> or the data needs to be extracted first, if it's packed
[23:35:22] <rocket_hamster> Karst,
[23:35:27] <rocket_hamster> change GamePath=C:/Program Files (x86)/Black Isle/Icewind Dale/data to GamePath=C:/Program Files (x86)/Black Isle/Icewind Dale
[23:35:37] <rocket_hamster> note /data at the end
[23:35:41] <rocket_hamster> it shouldnt be there
[23:36:18] <Karst> oo fancy
[23:36:19] <Karst> it works
[23:36:35] <rocket_hamster> well not really :)
[23:36:40] <Karst> eh? D: what
[23:36:46] <rocket_hamster> it still is not correct ull see
[23:36:47] <Karst> it's running
[23:36:49] <rocket_hamster> try running a game
[23:38:09] <Karst> oh yes
[23:38:11] <Karst> thats not so slick
[23:38:14] <rocket_hamster> blue?
[23:38:16] <Karst> Blue Screen in the game window
[23:38:16] <Karst> yes
[23:38:18] <rocket_hamster> :)
[23:38:22] <rocket_hamster> ok i think i have fix
[23:38:31] <rocket_hamster> go to where you have your icewind installed
[23:38:52] <Karst> ok
[23:38:53] <rocket_hamster> and copy CD2\data to data\ and CD3\data to data
[23:38:53] <Karst> I am there
[23:38:59] <rocket_hamster> the files
[23:39:09] <rocket_hamster> so that all those files are in data\
[23:39:11] <Karst> so
[23:39:11] <rocket_hamster> understand?
[23:39:14] <Karst> dump all the files
[23:39:16] <Karst> not the folder
[23:39:19] <rocket_hamster> yes
[23:39:29] <Karst> the CD2&3 data files into the regular data folder, alright
[23:39:33] <rocket_hamster> yes
[23:40:00] <Karst> move right, as in no longer in the old location
[23:40:15] <Karst> or just copy
[23:40:22] <rocket_hamster> copy
[23:40:36] <rocket_hamster> copy is safer now that i think about
[23:40:38] <rocket_hamster> it
[23:40:50] <Karst> ok
[23:40:51] <Karst> copied
[23:41:00] <rocket_hamster> ok now open gemrb.cfg
[23:41:14] <Karst> k
[23:41:19] <rocket_hamster> change CD1=GamePath=C:/Program Files (x86)/Black Isle/Icewind Dale/data to CD1=GamePath=C:/Program Files (x86)/Black Isle/Icewind Dale
[23:41:29] <rocket_hamster> CD2=GamePath=C:/Program Files (x86)/Black Isle/Icewind Dale/CD2/data to CD2=GamePath=C:/Program Files (x86)/Black Isle/Icewind Dale
[23:41:38] <rocket_hamster> CD3=GamePath=C:/Program Files (x86)/Black Isle/Icewind Dale/CD3/data to CD3=GamePath=C:/Program Files (x86)/Black Isle/Icewind Dale
[23:41:45] <rocket_hamster> and run gemrb.exe
[23:42:17] <rocket_hamster> this should do the trick
[23:43:02] <Karst> can I safely modify the screen size from the cfg?
[23:43:09] <rocket_hamster> i think so
[23:43:15] <rocket_hamster> as long as you use same aspect ratio
[23:43:15] <Karst> or should I use the widescreen mod found somewhere, well I can always change it back I suppose
[23:43:17] <rocket_hamster> 4:3
[23:43:19] <Karst> it seems to be working, its super small atm
[23:43:46] <rocket_hamster> if you dont have widescreen installed you can use only "normal" resolutions
[23:43:54] <rocket_hamster> if you install widescreens its ok to use wide res
[23:44:16] <rocket_hamster> you can go up to 1280x1024
[23:44:23] <rocket_hamster> with icw:how
[23:44:30] <rocket_hamster> iwd*
[23:44:45] <rocket_hamster> also you can use Fullscreen=1
[23:45:14] <rocket_hamster> try starting a game with a party
[23:45:25] <rocket_hamster> if there is no blue screen it should be all set and working
[23:46:00] <rocket_hamster> and btw the currect system with directories really sucks and shouldnt be so complicated, maybe if i get a free time i can look into that and fix it somehow
[23:46:04] <rocket_hamster> current/
[23:46:15] <Karst> hmm, it is extremely choppy
[23:46:20] <Karst> and lots of grahpical bugs and errors
[23:46:38] <brada> probably missing data then
[23:46:40] <Karst> I used 1280 x 1040
[23:46:44] <brada> wrong res
[23:46:47] <brada> you cant use that
[23:46:49] <Karst> 1024*
[23:47:17] <brada> 1024x768 is the max
[23:48:06] <rocket_hamster> config is misleading then
[23:48:16] <brada> why?
[23:48:29] <rocket_hamster> #Resolutions supported by the original games (gemrb) are: # * 1280x1024 (bg2, iwd:how, iwd2)
[23:48:32] <Karst> thats much better, but my character movement is still very choppy, and my character seems to kind of slideshow when moving around
[23:48:45] <brada> missing animations
[23:48:59] <brada> so your log should complain about missing data
[23:49:13] <rocket_hamster> maybe change CD1=GamePath=C:/Program Files (x86)/Black Isle/Icewind Dale to CD1=GamePath=C:/Program Files (x86)/Black Isle/Icewind Dale\data
[23:49:17] <rocket_hamster> and all CDs respectively
[23:49:33] <rocket_hamster> now this system sucks a bit, why does user have to do all of this?
[23:49:44] <rocket_hamster> why not just one dir for gemrb, one dir for game
[23:49:46] <Karst> aditionally I cannot exit some menus with escape, but others work fine, and I cannot access the add new character menu at all, thats kind of wierd
[23:50:22] <brada> maybe im wrong about res then
[23:50:39] <brada> either way it was wrong tho
[23:50:52] <brada> since changing it fixed the layout
[23:51:13] <brada> Karst: what is your gametype?
[23:51:36] <brada> you ned how if you are playing iwd:how
[23:51:54] <brada> then maybe you could use 1280x1024 also
[23:52:22] <Karst> no change, I cannot use right click to move, and when I drag left click to form boxes to select units, the boxes disappear or flash
[23:52:27] <Karst> I am playing Icewind dale, with HoW installed
[23:52:35] <Karst> I tried changing to /data, no change
[23:52:35] <brada> so what is your gametype?
[23:52:52] <Karst> I dont undersatnd the question, Icewind dale with Heart of Winter installed, win7 64bit
[23:52:52] <brada> in your cfg
[23:52:55] <Karst> how
[23:52:59] <brada> ok then
[23:53:13] <brada> usually that problem means using the wrong game type
[23:53:24] <brada> or missing data
[23:53:52] <brada> so if you have GameType=how in your cfg file i dont know whats up
[23:54:00] <rocket_hamster> working for me
[23:54:10] <rocket_hamster> did you change CD1=GamePath=C:/Program Files (x86)/Black Isle/Icewind Dale to CD1=GamePath=C:/Program Files (x86)/Black Isle/Icewind Dale\data
[23:54:17] <rocket_hamster> damn
[23:54:21] <rocket_hamster> sorry
[23:54:35] <rocket_hamster> oh no
[23:54:41] <Karst> http://pastebin.com/rwuyvSj1
[23:54:43] <Pepelka> Karstwierdproblems - Pastebin.com
[23:54:57] <rocket_hamster> yes
[23:54:59] <rocket_hamster> that
[23:55:07] <rocket_hamster> this is how i have it
[23:55:59] <brada> so this is from GoG?
[23:56:06] <rocket_hamster> mine is
[23:56:11] <brada> and you are sure you have how installed?
[23:56:16] <brada> right but yours works
[23:56:18] <brada> his doesnt
[23:56:24] <rocket_hamster> yes GOG is not how
[23:56:34] <Karst> this is uh
[23:56:51] <Karst> Icewind Dale 3 in 1 box set
[23:56:53] <Karst> not GoG
[23:56:54] <brada> so if not from gog that cfg seems wrong
[23:57:07] <rocket_hamster> why?
[23:57:12] <brada> because the CD paths
[23:57:16] <brada> comment them out
[23:57:24] <rocket_hamster> we copied data files
[23:57:29] <brada> ah
[23:57:29] <rocket_hamster> to one data folder
[23:57:31] <Karst> I changed..../Icewind Dale/data to /Icewind Dale\data, did not know if the / or \ mattered but made no difference
[23:57:37] <brada> well then perhapps something went wrong
[23:57:42] <brada> why did you do that anyway?
[23:57:54] <rocket_hamster> to simplify stuff
[23:57:59] <rocket_hamster> nothing worked
[23:58:13] <Karst> maybe I messed up some stuff when I was trying to manually install things early on, not sure
[23:58:18] <brada> well yes windows paths use \ instead of / so...
[23:58:41] <brada> you log would complain about invalid path
[23:58:44] <brada> so look there
[23:58:51] <brada> or post it for me to look at
[23:58:55] <Karst> i dont have a gemrb.log in my GemRB folder
[23:59:14] <brada> i dont know how to get a log on windows
[23:59:21] <brada> im sure there is a way
[23:59:25] <rocket_hamster> well you can run it from console
[23:59:29] <rocket_hamster> and see output
[23:59:40] <brada> ok
[23:59:41] <rocket_hamster> command line i mean
[23:59:45] <brada> do that then
