[13:03:37] <sbx> wb
[13:03:43] <Yuv422> hi sbx
[13:03:51] <Yuv422> my computer went to sleep on me
[13:04:16] <sbx> thats not nice
[13:04:17] <sbx> it doesn't shut down gracefully? :
[13:04:21] <sbx> )
[13:04:23] <sbx> :)
[13:05:00] <Yuv422> it doesn't tell the apps that it's going to sleep
[13:05:18] <Yuv422> so any net connections would time out on the remote side
[13:05:41] <sbx> it should
[13:05:50] <Yuv422> when I turned it back on BitchX thought I was still chatting in #nuvie
[13:06:03] <Yuv422> maybe it does
[13:06:12] <sbx> oh yeah you use bitchx :)
[13:06:13] <Yuv422> but most apps wouldn't participate
[13:06:25] <sbx> it would be nice if it sent them a signal, but yeah they'd have to respond
[13:07:06] <Yuv422> I won't be around for a week or so
[13:07:11] <Yuv422> I'm going skiing! :)
[13:07:17] <Yuv422> on sunday
[13:08:16] <sbx> wow
[13:08:20] <sbx> are you good?
[13:09:07] <Yuv422> I've been skiing since I was a kid
[13:09:19] <sbx> Heh guess that's a yes
[13:09:23] <sbx> I knew you went at least once before
[13:09:24] <Yuv422> I could still improve though
[13:09:32] <sbx> ganbatte kudasai!
[13:09:36] <Yuv422> yeah I try to go at least once a year
[13:09:51] <wjp> ooh, japanese :-)
[13:10:12] <sbx> i hope that means good luck
[13:10:17] <wjp> pretty much
[13:10:20] <sbx> yay
[13:10:23] <Yuv422> :)
[13:11:38] <sbx> Yuv422: maybe I will upload some changes to nuvie by the time you get back
[13:11:41] <sbx> if not before you go
[13:11:48] <Yuv422> :)
[13:12:15] <Yuv422> want me to commit my combat / death related changes
[13:12:20] <Yuv422> ?
[13:12:49] <sbx> if you're ready to
[13:14:08] <Yuv422> it is a bit rough around the edges
[13:14:17] <Yuv422> but it shouldn't crash
[13:14:52] <Yuv422> what are you working on at the moment?
[13:14:55] <sbx> what is it?
[13:15:16] <sbx> sleep at inn
[13:15:37] <sbx> I was going to do a balloon liftoff effect but then I noticed U6 didn't have one :p
[13:16:13] * Yuv422 diffs his changes
[13:16:17] <sbx> k
[13:16:38] <sbx> Is there yet a way to stop mapblacking updating?
[13:16:46] <sbx> for the earthquakes
[13:16:51] <Yuv422> not yet
[13:16:59] <sbx> How would you go about adding it?
[13:17:37] <Yuv422> hmm
[13:18:05] <Yuv422> maye link it to the freeze player movement state?
[13:18:16] <Yuv422> I'm not too familiar with how that is done now.
[13:19:25] <sbx> What would be done in mapwindow to stop it?
[13:20:00] <Yuv422> maybe a flag in the update blacking method?
[13:20:05] <Yuv422> I'd have to look
[13:20:15] <sbx> okay
[13:20:18] <sbx> ok
[13:20:32] <sbx> Oh a minor note about mapblacking when your at the same tile as a boundary, the blacking should be inverted.
[13:20:44] <sbx> The tile your at should be black and everything else is shown.
[13:21:14] <sbx> I think I noticed that difference anyway. Although the way it is now is more logical.
[13:21:33] <Yuv422> where would that happen?
[13:22:00] <sbx> When you go through a mousehole.
[13:22:58] <Yuv422> ah yes
[13:29:52] <Yuv422> I'll do some more work on combat when I get back.
[13:30:09] <Yuv422> I'm going to add a combat object type
[13:30:26] <Yuv422> a list of types will be stored in a table
[13:30:41] <Yuv422> which is looked up when an object is readied
[13:30:46] <Yuv422> or looked at etc
[13:31:02] <Yuv422> so we can determine its combat paramaters
[13:31:21] <Yuv422> We'll probably have a combat manager too
[13:31:48] <Yuv422> which will serve these objects to other classes based on an Obj identifier
[13:32:05] <Yuv422> Actor will keep a list of readied combat object types
[13:32:37] <Yuv422> so it will know what values to use for the readied items when attacking
[13:33:45] <Yuv422> ok I've committed my changes
[13:38:56] <sbx> alright
[13:39:22] <sbx> the combat stats wouldnt be stored with some existing object data?
[13:39:27] <sbx> data/tables
[13:40:07] <sbx> passing with Obj? clever
[13:40:45] <sbx> all I know the actor needs are target and attacker
[13:42:45] <Yuv422> time for bed
[13:42:54] <Yuv422> cya
[13:43:04] <sbx> bye
