[00:08:37] <Malignant_Manor> There are partial U6 translations in German and Italian. Maybe one day I will go through the engine and get that done, but there are tons of files to go through.
[00:09:02] <Yuv422> I thin k we’d need to move the U6 usecode into lua first
[00:09:36] <Malignant_Manor> Well, there are tons of areas besides usecode where hardcoded strings are used.
[00:09:40] <Yuv422> I was thinking about having C based calls back into the i18n lua functions
[00:10:25] <Malignant_Manor> Menus would be the worst to do nicely.
[00:10:48] <Malignant_Manor> Everything there is fixed width.
[00:13:31] <Yuv422> yeah menus would be pretty low on my list of priorities
[00:20:35] <Yuv422> just looking at the avatar death logic
[00:20:54] <Yuv422> you wake up at 7am
[00:21:11] <Yuv422> but at a random minute
[00:21:34] <Yuv422> I wonder why they wanted a randomised minute
[00:21:35] <Yuv422> ?
[00:28:21] <Malignant_Manor> Is the minute when you died?
[00:28:38] <Malignant_Manor> or a minute after?
[00:29:01] <Yuv422> it’s the minute that you are revived by dr blood
[00:30:30] <Malignant_Manor> I would think they just didn't bother to change the minute.
[00:30:54] <Yuv422> no it’s actually set to a random number
[00:31:01] <Yuv422> in the range 0 to 59
[00:32:19] <Yuv422> loc_2627C:
[00:32:20] <Yuv422> mov current_hour, 7
[00:32:21] <Yuv422> xor ax, ax
[00:32:23] <Yuv422> push ax
[00:32:24] <Yuv422> mov ax, 59
[00:32:26] <Yuv422> push ax
[00:32:27] <Yuv422> call rand
[00:32:27] <Yuv422> mov current_minute, al
[00:33:11] <Malignant_Manor> That just seems like a waste of code for an early 90s game.
