[12:28:47] <CIA-58> nuvie: 03efry * r1103 10/nuvie/branches/ERIC_SCRIPTING_2_BRANCH/ (actors/U6Actor.cpp data/scripts/u6/actor.lua): * Fixed freeze when the avatar died and was teleported back to LB's castle.
[12:29:45] <Kirben> Yuv422: Should I base the Windows snapshot off ERIC_SCRIPTING_2_BRANCH now? or wait until changes are merged into trunk?
[12:30:01] <Yuv422> Hey Kirben
[12:30:04] <Yuv422> hmm
[12:30:45] <Yuv422> maybe hold off just a bit
[12:30:52] <Yuv422> I might merge soon
[12:31:01] <Kirben> ok
[12:31:33] <Yuv422> I am keen for people to test out the new combat logic though
[12:31:38] <Yuv422> to see what they think
[12:31:48] <Yuv422> I might even do a release
[12:31:51] <Yuv422> ;-)
[12:32:51] <Yuv422> does my current branch build ok on win32?
[12:38:43] <Kirben> Checking now.
[12:41:42] <Yuv422> righto
[12:41:54] <CIA-58> nuvie: 03Kirben * r1104 10/nuvie/branches/ERIC_SCRIPTING_2_BRANCH/Makefile.mingw: Small change for MinGW compile.
[12:41:54] <Kirben> Yes, builds fine now.
[12:42:35] <Dominus> builds fine on OS X with automake tools as well
[12:42:47] <Yuv422> cool thanks guys
[12:43:08] <Dominus> (couldn'T compile with the xcode project file, though)
[12:43:21] <Yuv422> yeah I haven't updated that in awhile
[12:45:35] <Dominus> if you ever want to release, maybe you could take a look at Exult's path stuff for default game locations and cfg location on OS X. Doing away with %Home%/.nuvierc but instead storing the cfg in ~/library/preferences and other stuff (like savegames) in ~/library/aplications support/nuvie
[12:45:58] <Dominus> also exult picks up the games automatically now when they are in special locations on OS X and *nix
[12:46:14] <Yuv422> yeah
[12:46:29] <Yuv422> I'm all for reducing the support questions
[12:46:30] <Yuv422> ;-)
[12:46:43] <Dominus> also taking care of Windows program folder situation
[12:47:25] <Dominus> no writing in /program files/... folder without admin rights on newer Windows
[12:47:33] <Dominus> but that is disgressing too much from your current work :)
[12:47:43] <Yuv422> hehe
[12:47:51] <Yuv422> yeah I was looking at my todo list today
[12:47:56] <Yuv422> it's a bit depressing
[12:48:34] <Dominus> especially for essentially a one-man project atm...
[12:48:51] <Yuv422> yeah
[12:48:56] <Kirben> New users need to create their own config file, so that might be worse at this stage.
[12:49:48] <Yuv422> http://pastebin.com/jUpTynFw
[12:49:54] <Dominus> yes, that is a bit disheartening (starting up nuvie and then only see where it failed to find a cfg file :))
[12:50:05] <Yuv422> hehe
[12:50:07] <Yuv422> yeah
[12:51:26] <Yuv422> I do feel like I'm being quite productive at the moment though. ;-)
[12:51:52] <Yuv422> just got to keep up the momentum
[12:54:27] <Yuv422> I think the setup probably needs a bit of work before a release
[12:55:19] <Dominus> yes, definitely but it is boreing and frustrating work :)
[12:55:34] <Yuv422> at least showing errors on the sdl window instead of buried in a log that people don't know exists
[12:56:07] <Yuv422> yeah it's not the most fun thing to code up
[12:56:25] <Dominus> similar to Dosbox perhaps, a console window whichg can be hidden by a command line switch
[12:56:53] <Dominus> at least that stuff has been done by other projects and can be looked up :)
[12:57:00] <Yuv422> yeah
[12:57:21] <Yuv422> I think I'll keep going on my combat worktype work for a bit first
[12:57:42] <Yuv422> then when I'm ready to release something I'll do a bit of setup/config work
[12:57:58] <Yuv422> smooth over a few of the edges
[12:58:58] <Yuv422> I broke a few things when I switched over to a script based combat worktype system
[12:59:13] <Yuv422> so I should at least fix those first. ;-)
[12:59:36] <Yuv422> but now combat mode works
[12:59:37] <Yuv422> for free
[12:59:58] <Yuv422> as the original logic used the same combat logic for npcs and party members
[13:00:39] <Yuv422> it's nice to watch your party attack the gargs in the opening fight in the throne room
[13:01:54] <Dominus> gonna have to try that later today but now need to do some house work b4 my gf comes home or I'll be dead...
[13:02:03] <Yuv422> hehe
[13:02:26] <Yuv422> I've been in that situation a few times myself ;-)
[13:02:39] <Yuv422> I'm off to bed now
[13:02:43] <Yuv422> cya
