[00:51:58] <-- servus has left IRC ("Leaving")
[02:56:02] --> servus has joined #nuvie
[10:05:13] --> Yuv422 has joined #nuvie
[10:06:12] <Yuv422> hello
[10:06:16] --- sbx is now known as sbx|afk
[10:06:23] <sbx|afk> eek
[10:06:25] --- sbx|afk is now known as sbx
[10:06:29] <Yuv422> hehe
[10:06:30] <sbx> hiya
[10:06:33] <sbx> :)
[10:06:35] <Yuv422> hey
[10:06:56] <Yuv422> I fixed another bug from the SF list the other day
[10:07:14] <sbx> awesome!
[10:07:14] <Yuv422> You shouldn't be able to get top tile objects
[10:07:21] <Yuv422> like dragon bits
[10:07:27] <sbx> i mean, that's good
[10:07:28] <sbx> I see
[10:07:32] <sbx> didn't realize that
[10:07:36] <Yuv422> I'll have to commit it to cvs
[10:07:37] <Yuv422> :)
[10:07:44] <sbx> galleondragon reported a conversation bug
[10:07:51] <Yuv422> ah k
[10:07:54] * Yuv422 looks
[10:08:08] <sbx> Well I don't know if he "reported" it, but he told me.
[10:08:13] <sbx> and this is in the original U6
[10:08:19] <Yuv422> ah k
[10:08:32] <Yuv422> was it a big one?
[10:08:32] <sbx> but I don't know how Nuvie handles it... ask the blind healer in yew to "cure" you
[10:08:39] <sbx> it doesnt crash
[10:08:47] <sbx> but the talkdriver gives a few errors
[10:09:01] <Yuv422> cool
[10:09:29] <sbx> heh not really
[10:09:31] <sbx> ;)
[10:09:42] <Yuv422> hehe yeah
[10:09:44] <sbx> I don't know how the developers/testers missed that.
[10:10:02] <Yuv422> I must admit I enjoy finding bugs in the original these days. ;)
[10:11:26] <sbx> its better than when they're in nuvie
[10:11:45] <Yuv422> yes
[10:12:21] <Yuv422> but I do enjoy fixing bugs in Nuvie
[10:12:29] <Yuv422> however sad that must sound. ;)
[10:12:29] <sbx> I havn't worked on it in a while but its nothing to do with Nuvie, I just havn't felt like working.
[10:12:43] <Yuv422> that's fair enough. :)
[10:12:57] <sbx> better than adding bugs
[10:13:06] <Yuv422> hehe
[10:14:02] * Yuv422 looks for the healer in Yew
[10:14:54] <sbx> I played U6O some more recently.
[10:15:03] <sbx> sorry not yew, empath abbey
[10:15:13] <Yuv422> ah k
[10:15:31] <Yuv422> how's u6o going?
[10:15:45] * sbx shrugs.
[10:15:49] <sbx> They have mousemovement now.
[10:15:56] <Yuv422> cool
[10:16:02] <sbx> going to add a post office and houses
[10:16:07] <sbx> hopefully not too many houses
[10:17:13] <Yuv422> do you go to the post office to leave messages for other players?
[10:18:54] <sbx> yeah
[10:21:52] <sbx> He hasn't actually adding anything yet, but has posted a message on the forum asking for comments from the players.
[10:22:05] <sbx> added anything*
[10:24:24] <sbx> you'll be able to send letters and packages
[10:25:03] <Yuv422> sounds like a good idea
[10:25:21] <Yuv422> I guess people will be busy waiting at the post office
[10:25:31] <Yuv422> or do they deliver?
[10:26:12] <sbx> yes his current idea is to give players the message immediately, but I think thats too unrealistic
[10:26:43] <sbx> People have suggested multiple post offices, and receiving letters at the Inn too.
[10:27:45] <Yuv422> or at your personal home
[10:27:49] <Yuv422> if you have one
[10:28:35] <sbx> yes people have suggested that too! :)
[10:28:39] <sbx> how did you know?
[10:28:56] <Yuv422> :)
[10:30:25] <sbx> luteijn said they could drop the packages at your doorstep
[10:30:39] <Yuv422> that would be good
[10:30:45] <sbx> but also allow people to steal them!
[10:30:50] <Yuv422> you'd need new tiles for that though
[10:31:05] <Yuv422> does u6o have new tiles already?
[10:31:38] <Yuv422> I can't get staphanie to break the talk engine. :(
[10:31:39] <sbx> No, just resized and slightly enhanced. What would you need new tiles for?
[10:31:50] <Yuv422> the letters
[10:31:59] <sbx> put them on scrolls
[10:32:01] <Yuv422> I guess you could just use the scroll tile
[10:32:05] <Yuv422> ;)
[10:32:40] <sbx> And for packages, small things go in bags, middle-sized things go in crates, and large things go in chests. (or maybe chests was before crates)
[10:36:14] <Yuv422> I've added bool ObjManager::has_toptile(Obj *obj)
[10:37:08] <sbx> Is that related to the bug we were talking abotu before you left?
[10:37:34] <Yuv422> left?
[10:37:40] <sbx> vacation
[10:38:00] <Yuv422> that's the the dragon bits get bug
[10:38:00] <sbx> About the tops of moongates and doorframes.
[10:38:04] <sbx> oh
[10:38:13] <Yuv422> no
[10:38:19] <sbx> It might help that too!
[10:38:21] <sbx> or not?
[10:38:40] <Yuv422> I'm sure we can find other uses for it. :)
[10:39:29] <sbx> Pieter just brought me a magic shield and helmet.
[10:39:56] <Yuv422> neat
[10:40:41] <sbx> he's got 2,500gold in the bank
[10:40:53] <Yuv422> that's a fair bit
[10:41:06] <Yuv422> how'd he obtain that?
[10:41:16] <sbx> constant treasure hunting I imagine
[10:41:33] <sbx> and then selling extra equipment he finds
[10:41:46] <sbx> magic bow is worth 150gold
[10:41:52] <sbx> these things are all over the world he says
[10:42:34] <sbx> but now the fletcher has gone off to eat
[10:44:15] <Yuv422> are any shops manned by real people?
[10:47:20] <sbx> nope
[10:47:37] <sbx> there isn't even trading yet
[10:47:49] <sbx> you have to use something worse than U6 interface
[10:48:07] <sbx> by that I mean, you type the entire conversation with an NPC, and there are no menus to buy/sell
[10:53:36] * sbx yawns.
[10:53:43] <Yuv422> :)
[10:53:59] <sbx> Yuv422: Any PCs available?
[10:54:09] <sbx> So you can try u6o sometime?
[10:54:10] <Yuv422> huh?
[10:54:13] <Yuv422> ah
[10:54:16] <sbx> windows PC
[10:54:44] <Yuv422> yeah I'll have to see if I can get access to a win32 machine
[10:56:24] <sbx> alright
[10:56:28] <sbx> I'm going to sleep. Talk to you later.
[10:56:50] <Yuv422> righto
[10:56:52] <Yuv422> cya
