[11:24:16] <Yuv422> :)
[11:28:17] <SB-X> hi eric
[11:28:34] <SB-X> I didn't see you in the channel the other day until you'd left already.
[11:28:42] <SB-X> sorry about being gone so long I just took a break
[11:29:59] <Yuv422> hehe hello
[11:30:01] <Yuv422> np
[11:30:24] <Yuv422> How's it going?
[11:31:16] <Yuv422> I've got a winxp machine now. :)
[11:31:58] <SB-X> great, i've been catching up on some games I hadn't finished... and playing new ones
[11:32:24] <Yuv422> I've spent my christmas bonus on a copy of IDA Pro.
[11:32:35] <Yuv422> I haven't got it yet though
[11:32:39] <SB-X> haha, nice...
[11:32:47] <SB-X> oh... what have you done with the xp machine?
[11:32:51] <SB-X> is it good for games?
[11:33:05] <Yuv422> HTPC
[11:33:29] <Yuv422> I'm not really big on PC games these days
[11:33:42] <SB-X> what about nuvie?
[11:33:46] <Yuv422> it's only a 2.2Ghz Athlon
[11:33:54] <SB-X> I need to get a new graphics card to play more games.
[11:34:06] <Yuv422> nuvie is the exception that proves the rule
[11:34:25] <SB-X> heh ...
[11:34:33] <SB-X> does it work as well in XP as it does for you in osx?
[11:34:44] <Yuv422> I haven't tried yet
[11:34:51] <Yuv422> I'm still setting the box up
[11:34:51] <SB-X> oh really
[11:34:57] <SB-X> I've tested it, of course. But I have no idea how it runs in OSX to begin with.
[11:35:12] <Yuv422> not too well at the moment
[11:35:22] <Yuv422> I need to rewrite the gfx routines for osx
[11:35:36] <Yuv422> as it doesn't do sw buffers properly
[11:35:37] <SB-X> the fullscreen issue?
[11:35:50] <Yuv422> no even in windowed mode
[11:35:59] <Yuv422> it flickers terribly
[11:36:01] <SB-X> hmm
[11:36:09] <SB-X> is this a new issue?
[11:36:14] <Yuv422> no
[11:36:21] <SB-X> oh
[11:36:31] <Yuv422> but I did a search and it is a know issue with sdl on osx
[11:37:01] <Yuv422> I got nuvie running on the gp2x
[11:37:18] <SB-X> oh yeah, I forgot about that!
[11:37:21] <Yuv422> I haven't had time to smooth out some of the control issues yet
[11:37:21] <SB-X> what kind of changes need to be made?
[11:37:31] <Yuv422> hardly any
[11:37:42] <Yuv422> I needed to disable your cursor code
[11:37:52] <Yuv422> and set the screen to 16bpp 320x240
[11:37:58] <Yuv422> that's about it
[11:38:00] <Yuv422> :)
[11:38:05] <SB-X> how can we fix the cursor code?
[11:38:14] <Yuv422> not sure yet
[11:38:21] <Yuv422> I didn't look at it in detail
[11:38:30] <Yuv422> but sound works
[11:38:36] <SB-X> i'm sure it can be, u6 isn't the same without the cursors :)
[11:38:40] <SB-X> good
[11:38:41] <Yuv422> I was running the fm towns version
[11:38:51] <SB-X> hope it's not static
[11:39:09] <Yuv422> there is static in the music
[11:39:16] <Yuv422> but the conversations are fine
[11:39:29] <SB-X> it's the opposite for me in linux
[11:39:34] <SB-X> on the PC
[11:39:39] <Yuv422> strange
[11:40:04] <SB-X> I didn't enable the speech because it gets annoying.
[11:40:18] <Yuv422> I guess optimising the audio is a task for later
[11:40:45] <SB-X> for sure... I'm happy to have a new port
[11:40:52] <SB-X> now to get a gp2x
[11:40:58] <Yuv422> :)
[11:41:04] <SB-X> don't do what snes did to change the interface
[11:41:09] <SB-X> that was annoying
[11:41:26] <Yuv422> I was tinkering with a virtual keyboard idea
[11:41:33] <SB-X> It took a while to use I mean, with their menu.
[11:41:33] <Yuv422> but it's not finished yet
[11:41:54] <SB-X> could certainly use that to enter your name
[11:41:57] <SB-X> and some keywords
[11:42:23] <SB-X> in the SNES version you'd bring up a menu with one of the buttons
[11:42:45] <SB-X> with options like Look, Talk, Attack, Cast, Camp, Inventory
[11:43:04] <SB-X> scrolling through the options with the dpad was a little slow
[11:43:27] <SB-X> to use what few usable objects there were, you'd have to look at them
[11:43:34] <SB-X> and it would say "Use it?"
[11:43:40] <SB-X> and you'd have to press the confirm button
[11:43:50] <SB-X> or the cancel button if you didn't want to use it
[11:44:14] <SB-X> some other objects that were gettable would say "Take it?" and you could get them that way
[11:46:09] <Yuv422> bbl
[11:46:15] <SB-X> ok
[11:46:19] <SB-X> I think the gp2x has as many buttons as an SNES controller.
[11:46:25] <Yuv422> I've got to disconnect my keyboard to use on the xp box
[11:46:26] <Yuv422> :(
[11:46:31] <Yuv422> I've only got 1.
[11:46:41] <SB-X> hehe that's kind of an oversight
[11:47:15] <SB-X> I share one monitor between my two computers.
[11:47:19] <-- Yuv422 has left IRC (Remote closed the connection)
