[21:16:54] <Yuv422> http://i55.tinypic.com/2w7mzom.png
[21:17:31] <Yuv422> comparison of explosion animation. Original / Nuvie
[21:18:09] <Yuv422> I think I need to reverse the original tile rotation algorithm now.
[21:24:11] <Dominus> he he, I think the nuvie style looks better, the original looks too much in order
[21:31:11] <Yuv422> :)
[21:31:57] <Yuv422> SDL is doing something weird when I move the nuvie window to my second monitor
[21:32:12] <Yuv422> that's the purple tint you can see in the nuvie window
[21:32:27] <Dominus> I was wondering about that...
[21:32:51] <Dominus> (btw. you are using an old Dosbox version...:))
[21:33:38] <Dominus> my feature request would be to make explosions use a much more random pattern :)
[21:39:30] <Yuv422> hehe they were more random and I've just changed it to be more like the original
[21:39:41] <Yuv422> I guess it would be good to have both styles
[21:39:56] <Yuv422> yeah I debug on the latest dosbox
[21:40:09] <Yuv422> that's just the copy I have in my /usr/local
[21:40:16] <Dominus> :)
[21:40:46] <Yuv422> we were using the wrong tile for the explosions though
[21:40:51] <Yuv422> a flame
[21:41:21] <Dominus> switching between original and advanced explosions would be nice... but mostly just a nice touch, nothing I'd want development to be stuck at :)
[21:42:27] <Yuv422> so you don't want me to spend a couple of years getting the explosion configuration system just right. ;-)
[21:42:55] <Dominus> yep, I'd rather have a redesigned interface :)
[21:44:28] <Yuv422> yeah I have some plans for a full screen interface
[21:44:39] <Yuv422> that can be used without a keyboard
[21:45:24] <Yuv422> I'm going to finish implementing the original combat logic first though
[21:45:31] <Yuv422> and the rest of the magic spells
[21:46:56] <-- Dominus has left IRC (Quit: Leaving.)
[21:47:36] --> Dominus has joined #nuvie
[21:50:03] <Dominus> yeah, nothing urgent, but something I'd look forward to - a redesigned interface
[21:51:13] <Dominus> some ideas could use a transparent overlay for conversations or some kind of status bar for everything not conversations and a conversation screen overlayed when talking to someone...
[21:52:37] <Yuv422> yeah I like the transparent overlay idea
[21:52:45] <Yuv422> similar to u7
[21:53:27] <Dominus> whenever you feel like taking the interface on it could be useful to get a discussion going about this, for example by using ultimaaiera.com... I'm sure you could get some interesting input on this
[21:53:42] <Yuv422> yeah
[21:53:55] <Yuv422> they seem pretty active at the moment
[21:54:09] <Yuv422> I'll hold off on the discussion for a bit though
[21:54:19] <Yuv422> till I'm ready to work on it
[21:54:35] <Yuv422> still got a lot of gameplay to sort first
[21:54:48] <Dominus> yes, I hope it will continue so and be a safe haven for ultima related stuff for much longer
[21:55:01] <Dominus> of course, iron everything else out firts :)
[21:55:11] <Yuv422> hehe
[21:55:20] <Yuv422> I've gotta go now
[21:55:21] <Yuv422> cya
[21:55:40] <Dominus> bye
