[22:29:54] <Yuv422> Dominus: The Xcode4 situation doesn't sound too good
[22:30:08] <Yuv422> too bad if you are a powerpc users
[22:30:14] <Yuv422> -s
[22:32:55] <Dominus> yes, one can manage and if you keep the old sdks it might still work which I'm going to test tomorrow or so
[22:33:41] <Yuv422> right
[22:33:52] <Dominus> the *nix style building is screwed a bit though but I think one can manage as well by setting correct paths in the correct order (so the old universal ld is used instead of the new intel only one)
[22:34:23] <Dominus> right now I need to backup my mac and set it up again. I somehow managed to screw up my file system
[22:34:29] <Dominus> that or my hd is going back
[22:34:33] <Dominus> bad
[22:34:51] <Yuv422> that's no good
[22:35:12] <Dominus> I get the progress bar on every bootscreen and as far as I could find out it means either bad file system or bad hd
[22:35:15] <Yuv422> I'm working on pc speaker sfx again
[22:35:36] <Yuv422> hopefully you haven't lost any data
[22:36:14] <Dominus> data seems to be fine and thanks to timemachine and often using it I should be fine
[22:36:30] <Dominus> after hours I got it to boot again and since then am backing up
[22:44:01] <Yuv422> yeah that's the nerve racking time
[22:46:52] <Dominus> something probably went bust and generated a huge log file or whatever. suddnely I was off and when I was able to check the hd my previous half full 1TB hd had only a couple of MB left and that probably caused other stuff... after booting from the dvd, fixing volume through the disk utility and booting
[22:47:00] <Dominus> the excess file seems to have vanished
[22:47:40] <Dominus> but still my system is behaving weird (and gives the progress bar on startup which means it is still trying to fix the volume somehow)
[22:47:46] <Dominus> oh well...
[22:48:13] <Dominus> Yuv422: a fully sfx would be good
[22:48:32] <Dominus> so people can enjoy that again :)
[22:48:50] <Yuv422> I'm having trouble interpreting the pc speaker code
[22:49:27] <Yuv422> I think I need a better understanding of how the speaker reacts when the input frequency is reset
[22:50:15] <Yuv422> at the moment my hit sfx isn't sounding quite right
[22:50:48] <Yuv422> I'm going to dump the nuvie generated sfx's out to wav files so I can compare with dosbox's output
[22:53:22] <Dominus> yeah, dosbox should be pretty close to how it should sound
[22:55:27] <Yuv422> The probalem is I'm cheating and not emulating the pc speaker / PIT stuff
[22:55:40] <Yuv422> I'm emulating the output based on the output sample rate
[22:55:47] <Yuv422> and a perfect square wave
[22:55:59] <Yuv422> which is making everything sound really metallic
[23:02:26] <Dominus> then you need the equivalent of a graphics scaler to make the edges softer :)
[23:02:39] <Dominus> sorry, not helping :)
[23:06:13] <Yuv422> hehe
[23:06:32] <Yuv422> yeah I dosbox has a speaker speed
[23:06:50] <Yuv422> so it takes time to go from edge to edge
[23:07:17] <Yuv422> dosbox is also outputting at 44100
[23:07:28] <Yuv422> and I'm outputting at 22050
[23:07:48] <Yuv422> I might try upping the rate to see if I get a cleaner sound
