[00:01:00] <brada> so the only way to run that build is to manually install sdl at /usr/local/opt/sdl/lib/libSDL-1.2.0.dylib
[00:01:30] <brada> obut the download from sdl is a framework, not a plain dylib

[17:07:23] <fireflame> hello
[17:07:55] <fireflame> i see gemrb has reached 0.8.4 version so how distant is the 1.0 version?
[17:24:49] <-- lynxlynxlynx has left IRC (Ping timeout: 260 seconds)
[17:24:59] --> lynxlynxlynx has joined #gemrb
[17:25:00] --- ChanServ gives channel operator status to lynxlynxlynx
[17:25:29] <lynxlynxlynx> fireflame: good question
[17:26:01] <lynxlynxlynx> we never really talked much about it, but I'm pretty sure 1.0 would mean all the games are very well playable and playable to the end
[17:26:43] <lynxlynxlynx> considering that, there is still a lot of work to do on pst and iwd2
[17:26:59] <lynxlynxlynx> sadly they're also the least researched and modded, so it's harder
[17:43:49] <fireflame> pst is a very good game
[17:44:11] <fireflame> iwd2 only played it once a,d found it average
[17:44:39] <lynxlynxlynx> i liked both stories
[17:45:38] <lynxlynxlynx> iwd2 has better gameplay and underlying system, but like its predecessors, a pretty classical dungeon crawl
[17:47:23] <fireflame> well i felt there were too many fights and i globally prefrred the spells of bg 2
[17:48:41] <fireflame> i was expecting you would have more problems with a game like bg2 since there are so many quests and all that
[17:49:11] <lynxlynxlynx> it's the most used and understood engine
[17:49:26] <fireflame> but then why iwd is going better?
[17:49:56] <lynxlynxlynx> we were talking about pst and iwd, not bg2
[17:50:06] <fireflame> what i mean is
[17:50:15] <fireflame> you have issues with iw2, but then why not with iwd
[17:50:20] <fireflame> the first
[17:50:41] <lynxlynxlynx> older engine
[17:50:56] <lynxlynxlynx> iwd2 uses a subset of 3ed rules, the rest 2nd ed
[17:51:16] <lynxlynxlynx> so a lot of the plumbing is very similar
[17:51:45] <lynxlynxlynx> iwd2 for example uses a completely different way to script enemy spellcasting and we still haven't figured it out completely
[17:53:18] <fireflame> i see even beamdog is scared by iwd2 and statedit would be nightmarish if they remade it
[17:54:17] <lynxlynxlynx> yes, they would almost have to start from scratch or rewrite large portions
[17:54:17] <fireflame> "Icewind Dale II implemented the 3rd Edition rules and has a completely different UI scheme. We're really not sure how deep those changes run," Oster explained. "The move to 3rd Edition rules would invalidate all the character classes and require a pretty thorough rework of the entire game to bring in the features from our Infinity Plus Engine. At minimum, nightmares abound."
[17:57:33] <fireflame> well maybe one day, some fan comes in and remakes entirely the game but using gemrb?Some games have been remake by fans on completely new negines
[17:57:42] <fireflame> like diablo being remade with starcraft 2 engine iirc
[17:59:42] --> fizzle has joined #gemrb
[18:00:01] <lynxlynxlynx> it'd be better to create a new game
[18:00:14] <lynxlynxlynx> iwd2 already works in gemrb, there's no remaking neeeded
[19:03:35] <-- fizzle has left #gemrb
