[12:29:28] <luteijn> put something together to try and match the tileflag abbreviations from the ACE article to our own research: http://luteijn.xs4all.nl/u6owiki/Tileflag
[12:31:51] <Yuv422> hey luteijn
[14:13:44] <-- Yuv422 has left IRC ()
[15:35:04] <luteijn> updated my Tileflag table a bit more taking input from the 'old docs' and the 'editor screenshot' (too bad the objects in the screenshot don't have a few more flags set. I think what we called 'Balloon boundary' is actually No Shoot Through/missile boundary.. see above link and maybe amend if you have better guesses..
[18:39:12] <SB-X> oh i missed eric
[18:39:13] <SB-X> of course
[18:39:49] <SB-X> that is correct: NoShootThru
[18:40:08] <SB-X> and OK_TO_TAKE is OWNED
[18:40:18] <SB-X> but those are objflags
[18:41:16] <SB-X> i will ammend to that online doc with anything else noted in my tile_flags.txt file
[19:07:07] <luteijn> The object flags are pretty well readable from the screenshot.
[19:07:50] <luteijn> The tileflags that we have the least idea about are also the ones that are abbreviated the most on the screenshot.
[19:09:03] <luteijn> and not really mentioned too well in the 'old docs' that are on the phorum..
[19:13:53] <SB-X> it's in map_editor.txt iirc
[19:17:12] <luteijn> hmm is that a file that's not in cvs?
[19:24:31] <SB-X> oh, yes
[19:24:56] <SB-X> it's one of those docs, the one that descibes how the map editor works
[19:25:06] <luteijn> another hint from the screenshot is in the spinning-wheel figure. It has 2 tileflags set, 'impassable' and the elusive 'ge'; so we can map 'ge' to its bit position.
[19:25:56] <SB-X> eric was unsure of the legality of copying the developer's docs to cvs so we didn't
[19:26:07] <SB-X> spinning wheel?
[19:26:18] <SB-X> hmm
[19:26:40] <SB-X> ok, so that's the tile/object being viewed
[19:26:46] <luteijn> it is on the screenshot of page 2. and it has bit '0x8' of the third group set. so that's probably 'ge'
[19:26:55] <SB-X> i don't have the screenshots available right now
[19:27:05] <SB-X> so im guessing
[19:27:20] <SB-X> that's a good clue
[19:27:22] <luteijn> (i copied the screenshots to http://luteijn.xs4all.nl/~luteijn/flags/ )
[19:27:39] <SB-X> nice thanks
[19:27:59] <SB-X> I have them stored somewhere locally but I dont remember where.
[19:30:07] <SB-X> im kind of sick and pretty tired so im going to go to sleep now
[19:30:08] <SB-X> cya
[19:30:16] <luteijn> goodnight..
