[09:43:38] --> Yuv422 has joined #nuvie
[09:49:25] * Yuv422 waves
[11:25:33] * SB-X waves.
[11:28:32] <Yuv422> hello
[11:28:55] * Yuv422 steps through game.exe
[11:29:11] <Yuv422> I can step break and continue now
[11:29:42] <Yuv422> I still need to fix stepping over int 21h
[11:30:16] <Yuv422> oh and the dosbox debugger is having some issues with game.exe
[11:30:27] <Yuv422> it chooses ega mode
[11:30:30] <Yuv422> and music
[11:30:42] <Yuv422> even though I have vga and no music set in the config
[11:39:01] <SB-X> step break continue ->cool!
[11:39:38] <SB-X> someone posted on the forum about wanting to help in figuring things in the game exe
[11:39:55] <Yuv422> yeah I saw that
[11:40:04] <Yuv422> I've got to write a reply
[11:40:28] <Yuv422> reversing is so much easier when you can see things running in a debugger
[11:40:38] <Yuv422> looking at the stack and the data
[11:41:11] <Yuv422> do you have a copy of dosbox with debug turned on?
[11:41:32] <Yuv422> I wanted to test debugging game.exe on a little endian machine
[11:42:03] <SB-X> no I don't think I do
[11:42:23] <SB-X> how would i know if my copy has debugging enabled?
[11:42:34] <SB-X> i forgot how to launch the debugger screen
[11:42:39] <Yuv422> you'll get a big curses window
[11:42:54] <Yuv422> you can just type debug game.exe
[11:43:01] <Yuv422> to launch the app in debug mode
[11:43:22] <SB-X> ?
[11:43:54] <Yuv422> from the dos prompt in dosbox
[11:44:00] <SB-X> oh, ok thanks
[11:44:17] <SB-X> now to find game.exe
[11:44:32] <Yuv422> :)
[11:44:56] <SB-X> nope, guess not -> "Illegal command: debug."
[11:45:16] <Yuv422> ah k
[11:45:19] <Yuv422> thanks for checking
[11:45:37] <SB-X> np, i will consider compiling a version with debugging enabled in the near future
[11:45:47] <Yuv422> cool
[11:45:58] <Yuv422> I have dosbox compiled under xcode now
[11:46:08] <Yuv422> so I can use the apple visual debugger
[11:46:29] <Yuv422> beats tracingg through a gdb console
[11:47:19] <SB-X> what do you use that for?
[11:47:46] <Yuv422> trying to work out why dosbox isn't stepping over the int 21 properly
[11:47:55] <SB-X> ah
[11:47:55] <Yuv422> and debugging my debugger code
[11:47:58] <SB-X> hehe
[11:48:03] <Yuv422> :-)
[11:48:06] <SB-X> k
[11:48:40] <Yuv422> I'm in the routine that loads the config.u6 file at the moment
