[04:48:31] --> Malignant_Manor has joined #nuvie
[04:52:54] <-- Malignant_Manor has left IRC (Client Quit)
[10:42:39] --> Yuv422 has joined #nuvie
[11:10:23] <Yuv422> I'm not a fan off the added code complexity that comes with these two new interface modes. :(
[11:12:35] <Dominus> hi eric
[11:12:45] <Yuv422> and I don't think we should be showing the old command bar in the new fullscreen interface
[11:12:48] <Yuv422> by default
[11:12:53] <Yuv422> Hi Dominus
[11:13:12] <Dominus> you are still lead developer :)
[11:14:28] <Yuv422> :)
[11:15:02] <Dominus> maybe you and malignant, need to have a talk about new features before Malignant starts coding
[11:15:23] <Yuv422> yeah
[11:16:26] <Dominus> first you two in private and when you are both undecided ask for others input
[11:16:34] <Yuv422> we've got three games too support in three interface modes
[11:16:53] <Yuv422> too/to
[11:17:25] <Dominus> yes, that's a bit of complexity
[11:17:54] <Yuv422> at multiple resolutions
[11:17:57] <Dominus> I'm a fan of just the fullscreen interface
[11:18:19] <Yuv422> I think the priority should be that and original at the moment
[11:18:30] <Dominus> definitely
[11:18:34] <Yuv422> get them both stable then work on other modes
[11:19:00] <Yuv422> I'll finish adding the custom actor tile logic
[11:19:07] <Yuv422> then I'll review the interface changes
[11:19:30] <Yuv422> Malignant has done a lot of great work
[11:19:49] <Yuv422> I think it just needs to be tweaked a bit
[11:20:31] <Yuv422> I guess it's good that he is primarily a mouse guy and I'm keyboard
[11:22:02] <Dominus> malignant is doing great work and I like how he tries to get the interface in order and fixes bugs left and right :)
[11:22:15] <Yuv422> yeah :)
[11:22:48] <Dominus> and he sets a bit of a pace :)
[11:23:02] <Yuv422> hehe true
[11:24:49] <Yuv422> some of this complexity could be managed with some utility methods
[11:25:07] <Yuv422> to replace duplicated checks
[11:25:23] <Dominus> probably yes...
[11:25:26] <Yuv422> which should also help with readablity
[11:25:38] <Dominus> got to go get the big boy from kindergarden...
[11:25:55] <Yuv422> cool
[11:26:01] <Yuv422> I'm off to bed now
[11:26:08] <Yuv422> cya

[18:52:47] <Malignant_Manor> For the logs, remember I did talk to you about the new UI many times before implementing and showed code several times too. Starting with this. http://logs.usecode.org/nuvielog.php?log=5Jan2014
[18:54:58] <Malignant_Manor> original+ is front loaded for what needs done. Testing it or orig_style will basically result in the same problems or lack thereof.
[18:56:09] <Malignant_Manor> So no much need for extra testing beyond initial implementation.
[18:56:51] <Malignant_Manor> no = not
[18:58:49] <Malignant_Manor> (unrelated) There's also this post on the forum you should look at. http://nuvie.sourceforge.net/phorum/read.php?1,1553.
[19:00:12] <Malignant_Manor> In one of our irc conversations you said that Daniel had new Avatar sprites so I hope those were implemented.
[19:02:16] <Malignant_Manor> I won't be able to work out making the orginal+ code better for awhile since I need to test my way through Ultima 6.
[19:03:27] <Malignant_Manor> I'm done coding before release unless it is bugs I notice and deem needed to fix or I need to add the custom sprites to non-new styles.
[19:05:56] <Malignant_Manor> I wish we had a release before the 8th when the CRPG Addict posted about Ultima 6 and we got a spike in downloads.

[20:00:11] --- Shozan is now known as SHODAN
[20:26:45] --> Malignant_Manor has joined #nuvie
[20:26:53] <Yuv422> Hi Malignant_Manor
[20:27:05] <Malignant_Manor> hi
[20:27:06] <Malignant_Manor> Have you read the logs?
[20:27:09] <Yuv422> Thanks for changing the commandbar config default
[20:27:12] <Yuv422> no
[20:27:16] * Yuv422 looks
[20:27:46] <Malignant_Manor> I think I thought about doing it that way in the first place but didn't do it because of extra code and documentation.
[20:28:23] <Malignant_Manor> I don't really use the command bar.
[20:28:46] <Yuv422> yeah we did talk about it
[20:29:01] <Yuv422> and you did pastebin the stuff before committing :-)
[20:29:24] <Yuv422> maybe we can tidy it it up a bit more after release
[20:29:40] <Yuv422> I'm working on the custom sprite stuff
[20:30:02] <Yuv422> I've also got the custom avatar sprite from daniel that we can include too
[20:30:07] <Yuv422> gotta go now though
[20:30:14] <Malignant_Manor> bye
[20:30:17] <Yuv422> cya
[20:30:18] <Malignant_Manor> also remember the forum
[20:30:32] <Yuv422> yeah I'll check that
[20:30:34] <Yuv422> cya

[22:13:53] <Dominus> wjp, I guess the dist_nuviedata_DATA = stuff in Makefile.am needs a lot of tweaking since last time anyone looked at it
[22:19:27] <Dominus> fixed the configure.ac Info.plist thing. Thanks wjp (for others, referenced from #exult)
