[18:22:59] <Dominus> yuv422, just hada go and looks interesting but the color bites the eye and makes it a bit hard to read. maybe a more orangish color and maybe a slight translucent background color behind the letters would be better

[21:28:52] <Yuv422> hi Dominus
[21:29:08] <Yuv422> yeah the font is very much a work in progress
[21:29:39] <Yuv422> I was trying to emulate the u7 look
[21:45:00] <Dominus> yeah, it reminded me of that :)
[21:45:27] <Dominus> one of the reasons why you can set a translucent background for conversations in Exult :)
[21:47:40] <Dominus> Yuv422: http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/204/backgroundgfr.png/
[21:48:19] <Yuv422> ah, ok
[21:49:26] <Dominus> you can chose different background colors
[21:49:41] <Yuv422> yes getting a font that is readable over the multitude of background colour combos is quite hard
[21:49:46] <Yuv422> cool
[21:49:57] <Yuv422> can you change the opacity too?
[21:50:36] <Dominus> hmm, no
[21:50:49] <Dominus> not without changing the source I guess
[21:51:43] <Dominus> the choices are "0 gives a purple background, 1 orange, 2 light gray, 3 green, 4 yellow, 5 pale blue, 6 dark green, 7 red, 8 bright white, 9 dark gray, 10 white"
[21:51:59] <Dominus> I always like purple :)
[21:53:06] <Yuv422> I wonder if a 1 bit black stipple would work
[21:55:04] <Dominus> hmm, just noticed that light grey is best, since it makes everything in the background to grey shades :)
[21:55:37] <Yuv422> :)

[22:01:14] <Yuv422> nice
[22:01:19] --> Dominus1 has joined #nuvie
[22:02:59] <Yuv422> I think the colour descriptions are wrong in the documentation on the exult website
[22:03:21] <Yuv422> I set my text background to 2
[22:03:28] <Yuv422> which should be light gray
[22:03:38] <-- Dominus has left IRC (Ping timeout: 240 seconds)
[22:03:47] <Yuv422> and I got yellow
[22:04:04] <Dominus1> yup...
[22:04:11] <Dominus1> seems something got wrong there...
[22:04:23] <Dominus1> 8 is the correct one
[22:04:29] <Yuv422> ah k
[22:05:08] <Dominus1> when I wrote that documetnation, I probably just copied the text from the changelog and never checked
[22:05:19] <Dominus1> or stuff changed years later :)
[22:05:53] <Yuv422> :)
[22:18:54] <Dominus1> got to go to bed :)
[22:18:57] <Dominus1> good night
[22:19:00] <Yuv422> cya
[22:19:02] <Yuv422> :)
