[10:08:48] <wjp> hi Yuv422
[10:08:54] <Yuv422> hi wjp
[10:09:13] <wjp> how's saving coming along?
[10:09:25] <Yuv422> slowly. ;-)
[10:10:54] <Yuv422> I'm going to start working on the actual saving code soon
[10:11:19] <Yuv422> which means working on a savegame file format.
[10:12:31] <Yuv422> which will proabably be some nuvie specific header info followed by the savegame files all packed up and gzip compressed
[10:13:06] <Yuv422> do you know any good image down scaling algorithms
[10:13:07] <Yuv422> ?
[10:14:03] <Yuv422> preferably one that favours a low colour image like the Ultima6 mapwindow
[10:16:50] <wjp> in exult we just take an average of blocks of 3x3 pixels
[10:17:17] <Yuv422> that's probably what I'll end up doing too
[10:17:31] <wjp> it gets pretty blurry, though
[10:30:04] <Yuv422> It looks like getting an image out of MapWindow cleanly will require a bit of a rewrite. I might leave that for a bit
[10:34:09] <Yuv422> should we measure playing time in days or hours?
[10:34:44] <Yuv422> days,hours, minutes or hours and minutes
[11:21:41] <wjp> hm, how long would it take you to finish the game?
[11:22:09] <wjp> just giving number of days played might be enough
[13:15:27] <Yuv422> time for bed
[13:15:28] <Yuv422> cya
