[11:11:11] <zabeus> hello
[11:11:18] <Yuv422> hey
[11:11:34] <zabeus> the email you sent makes sense
[11:11:36] <zabeus> thanks
[11:11:42] <Yuv422> cool :)
[11:11:49] <zabeus> is there a reason to not just call nuvie_load?
[11:11:51] <zabeus> immediately
[11:12:10] <zabeus> i guess you want to save it for later
[11:12:17] <Yuv422> hmm I’m not sure
[11:12:49] <zabeus> certainly from an object-oriented sense what you're doing now is good
[11:13:01] <zabeus> then you can re-init the same file more easily masybe?
[11:13:08] <zabeus> not sure if that would work though
[11:13:51] <zabeus> in any event, that function is not working so I guess the script is not working. will have to debug that osmehow
[11:14:30] <Yuv422> did it print out anything to the console?
[11:14:39] <zabeus> and forget my question about "calling nuvie_load", i see what you're doing now
[11:14:48] <zabeus> no it just exits
[11:15:05] <Yuv422> sorry I mean the stdout
[11:15:30] <zabeus> no, stderr had something
[11:15:58] <zabeus> like "Error: load init.lua"
[11:16:56] <Yuv422> did it give any more details?
[11:20:24] <zabeus> sorry that's a different computer, let me turn it on
[11:21:34] <zabeus> ah it does
[11:21:48] <zabeus> nice
[11:22:34] <zabeus> looks like its callinng Game and ActorManager methods
[11:22:39] <zabeus> which dont exist yet :)
[11:23:09] <zabeus> "attempt to call a nil value"
[11:24:22] <Yuv422> sounds like the function variable is nil
[11:25:51] <zabeus> yes several
[11:26:19] <zabeus> either need to move init to later, or change it to not init gamey things like ActorManager
[11:26:38] <Yuv422> move it to after game selection
[11:26:50] <Yuv422> as it only relates to a given game type
[11:28:02] <zabeus> it doesnt init anything needed for cutscenes in general? i was going to edit out the game-specific things
[11:28:41] <Yuv422> nope
[11:28:49] <Yuv422> only for in-game script
[11:29:57] <zabeus> ok
[11:31:31] <zabeus> are you going to try to get a quest completion certificate from Lord British? i only found out about it last week
[11:34:37] <Yuv422> hehe it would be nice
[11:35:02] <Yuv422> I was a bit envious of the exult guys getting it
[11:36:46] <zabeus> that would be nice but i mean just for finishing the game
[11:37:10] <zabeus> i was going to try sending LB a screen of me finishing U6 in Nuvie :)
[11:37:25] <Yuv422> yeah that would be great
[11:37:58] <zabeus> of course that might encourage him to give Nuvie the next award
[11:38:24] <zabeus> wonder if it would be annoying to send him a letter runic
[11:38:29] <zabeus> in runic*
[11:38:46] <Yuv422> I’m sure he’d appreciate that
[11:40:39] <zabeus> you probably know about this but theres a nice interview with him here: http://spoonyexperiment.com/game-reviews/ultima-retrospective/richard-garriott-interview/
[11:41:03] <zabeus> that's from almost two years ago
[11:46:32] <zabeus> still have to get the bitmap drawing working
[11:46:39] <zabeus> after getting the script to load
[11:55:40] <Yuv422> I’m off now
[11:55:41] <Yuv422> cya
