[08:51:05] --> Yuv422 has joined #nuvie
[08:54:20] <wjp> hi
[08:54:29] <Yuv422> hey Willem
[08:54:32] <wjp> good news about the offset fix :-)
[08:54:37] <Yuv422> yeah
[08:54:39] <wjp> things are going well this week :-)
[08:54:53] <Yuv422> :-)
[08:55:07] <wjp> I was quite impressed by how smoothly it worked last night now that the main rebasing issue is gone
[08:55:18] <wjp> you just attach the debugger and it works
[08:55:57] <Yuv422> yeah
[08:56:02] <Yuv422> the way it should work
[08:56:04] <Yuv422> ;-)
[08:56:39] <Yuv422> just a sec I'll send you the rebase offset fixup
[08:58:15] <Yuv422> ok on its way to you now
[09:07:00] <wjp> got it, thanks
[09:07:04] <wjp> bbl; meeting
[09:14:22] <Yuv422> cool
[09:14:25] <Yuv422> no worries
[11:41:51] <-- Dominus has left #nuvie
[13:01:10] <Yuv422> 0.74 seems a bit slower when debugging
[13:10:32] <wjp> hm, yeah, I did half-notice that
[13:10:52] <Yuv422> I wonder if they are doing more memory snooping now
[13:10:58] <Yuv422> or something
[13:20:21] <wjp> I guess it's a question for the dosbox people
[13:20:47] <Yuv422> yeah
[13:21:25] <Yuv422> I'm just going to commit the rebasing plugin code
[13:21:34] <wjp> sounds good
[13:23:29] <Yuv422> idados compiles and runs ok on OS X with your 0.74 changes
[13:24:00] <Yuv422> I think it might be time for another release ;-)
[13:25:38] <wjp> what about the dos loader thing?
[13:26:01] <wjp> could we add a patch for dos.cpp?
[13:26:12] <Yuv422> I've asked hexrays if we can include the new loader as a patch against the current sdk
[13:26:17] <Yuv422> snap :-)
[13:26:29] <wjp> no reply yet?
[13:26:38] <Yuv422> only just emailed them
[13:26:42] <wjp> ah, k
[13:28:03] <Yuv422> I was debugging a ultima 6 function the other day
[13:28:12] <Yuv422> that called a driver routine
[13:28:44] <Yuv422> idados happily stepped into the new code and I was able to see it all working together
[13:28:57] <Yuv422> it was one of those "ahh" moments ;-)
[13:29:52] <wjp> nice :-)
[13:29:54] <Yuv422> I just had to hit 'p' to convert the new code into a function and I could step through it in graphical mode too
[13:30:07] <wjp> I have some particularly pesky SCI code I want to try this with
[13:30:26] <Yuv422> cool
[13:30:57] <Yuv422> hopefully it's helpful
[13:31:45] <wjp> having live data in memory should really help with figuring out what it's doing
[13:31:51] <wjp> (string/pattern matching stuff)
[13:32:08] <Yuv422> I noticed that the base address for my u6 code has changed with the new dosbox version
[13:32:17] <wjp> yes, 20something
[13:32:18] <Yuv422> it's now rebasing a bit higher than before
[13:32:21] <Yuv422> yeah
[13:33:01] <Yuv422> it's amazing how much easier it is to get an understanding when you can see the code in action
[13:35:07] <Yuv422> I'm off to bed now
[13:35:09] <Yuv422> cya
[13:35:12] <wjp> good night
