[17:14:55] <Malignant_Manor> Someone just pointed out how horrible the introduction is on the home page.
[17:52:10] <TheCycoONE> the "still many aspects of the original game engine that need to be figured out" part?
[17:55:16] <TheCycoONE> btw, is transfer a character actually not started or is the progress page out of date (or both)
[18:10:33] <Malignant_Manor> Transfer a character hasn't been started.
[18:12:57] <Malignant_Manor> The sections that have no entries are screwed up atm and don't show the description I typed.
[18:39:37] <TheCycoONE> I see, empty condition in intro.lua

[20:26:30] <Yuv422> hi Malignant_Manor
[20:26:41] <Malignant_Manor> Hi Eric
[20:27:00] <Malignant_Manor> Did you see my log message about the outdated Nuvie description on the home page?
[20:27:47] <Malignant_Manor> Also http://www.rpgcodex.net/forums/index.php?threads/nuvie-ultima-6-in-full-screen.70226/page-4#post-3169035
[20:28:46] <Yuv422> hehe yeah that text doesn't sound very good
[20:33:55] <Yuv422> how does this sound?
[20:33:57] <Yuv422> Nuvie, pronounced 'New-Vee' is an open sourced game engine for playing Origin's games Ultima 6, Martian Dreams and Savage Empire on modern operating systems. Ultima 6 is fully playable from start to finish with Nuvie. Nuvie also contains many enhancements to the original engine including new UI modes and enhanced graphics.
[20:36:46] <Malignant_Manor> That sounds good.
[20:40:59] <Yuv422> Nuvie also contains many enhancements to the original engine including new UI modes (drag and drop, fullmap mode etc) and enhanced graphics.
[20:41:22] <Yuv422> should I mention some of the UI enchancements?
[20:57:41] --> HiPhish has joined #nuvie
[20:58:21] <Malignant_Manor> That sounds good too. but fullmap mode isn't a term.
[20:58:24] <HiPhish> Don't call it enhanced graphics, call it support for custom graphics (or drop the support part). My sprites aren't "enhanced" they are "alternate"
[20:58:39] <Malignant_Manor> Maybe increased resolution and [describe new style]
[20:58:51] <HiPhish> Oh BTW, congratulations on the 0.5 release :)

[21:49:23] <Dominus> Malignant, I wonder why you can't change the webpage. Doesn't it work as with Exult? You change the web source, then ssh into SF and run ./update.sh?
[21:59:11] --> Kirben has joined #nuvie
[22:15:58] <Yuv422> fullscreen map window mode
[22:16:42] <Dominus> Just call it U7 mode
[22:16:44] <Dominus> :)
[22:16:53] <Yuv422> hehe
[22:17:16] <Dominus> full view mode
[22:17:25] <Dominus> non-tiny-game-window mode
[22:17:44] <Yuv422> full view map mode
[22:18:08] <Dominus> full map view mode
[22:18:43] <Dominus> full map view (or U7) mode
[22:18:45] <Yuv422> Nuvie also contains many enhancements to the original engine including new UI modes (drag and drop, full map view mode etc) and new alternate graphics.
[22:19:16] <Dominus> hmm
[22:19:40] <Dominus> yeah, definitely better
[22:20:08] <Dominus> when you are done, can you go through Exult's changelog of the last decade and do a short summary?
[22:20:13] <Dominus> :)
[22:20:22] <Yuv422> lol
[22:20:52] <Yuv422> Nuvie also contains many enhancements to the original engine including new UI modes including drag and drop and full map view mode and new alternate graphics.
[22:21:45] <Dominus> I'd write drag'n'drop because of the two and
[22:22:48] <Yuv422> good point
[22:23:12] <Dominus> ui modes, including drag'n'drop and full map view mode, as well as alternate graphics
[22:24:25] <Dominus> (not sure about as well as, but it has a better sound but then I'm really not a native speaker :))
[22:24:55] <Yuv422> sounds good to me
[22:26:10] <Yuv422> Support for alternate graphics is also included
[22:26:38] <Dominus> right
[22:26:42] <Dominus> better
[22:27:04] <Dominus> why drag everything in one sentence when you can split it
[22:29:22] <Yuv422> Nuvie also contains many enhancements
[22:29:22] <Yuv422> to the original game engine including new UI modes, featuring drag'n'drop and full map view mode.
[22:29:23] <Yuv422> Support for alternate graphics is also included.
[22:29:54] <Dominus> or Nuvie now also supports alternate graphics
[22:30:06] <Dominus> nah
[22:30:14] <Dominus> again starting with Nuvie :)
[22:30:39] <Yuv422> I'll put it up as is
[22:30:43] <Dominus> Alternate Graphics are also supported
[22:31:10] <Dominus> :)
[22:36:43] --> HiPhish has joined #nuvie
[22:53:45] <Yuv422> ok the website has been updated
[22:58:13] <Yuv422> we should probably put some more screenshots on the main page
[22:59:06] <Dominus> yeah, never hurts, especially when there is so much new stuff
[23:09:53] <Yuv422> I'm off now
[23:09:54] <Yuv422> cya
[23:09:59] <-- Yuv422 has left IRC (Quit: Yuv422)
[23:33:00] <Lightkey> hm, needs more explaining what is meant with alternate graphics
[23:47:08] <TheCycoONE> and maybe drop the ancient screen shots from the rotation
