[21:18:33] --> Yuv422 has joined #nuvie
[21:26:09] <Yuv422> Dominus: any luck with the amiga mag?
[21:26:46] <Dominus> thanks for reminding :)
[21:26:58] <Dominus> this morning it wasn't there but now it is
[21:27:01] <Dominus> one moment...
[21:28:46] <Yuv422> cool
[21:32:55] <Dominus> actually nice article
[21:33:05] <Yuv422> :)
[21:33:28] <Dominus> a whole page, describing the game, and then giving advice on how to use nuvie and nuvie settings
[21:33:43] <Dominus> it notes that there is no fullscreen mode!
[21:34:23] <Dominus> and notes on what the engine does better than the original
[21:34:41] <Yuv422> hehe cool
[21:34:55] <Yuv422> I'll have to buy a hardcopy enlish version then
[21:35:10] <Yuv422> english
[21:35:21] <Dominus> yes, I think you do :)
[21:35:30] <Yuv422> how about pentagram?
[21:36:22] <Dominus> funny "the author concentrates on the Ultima 6 games, so it's not gonna work nicely to try out the other two games" (he mentions SE and MD earlier)
[21:36:36] <Dominus> he reall writes u6 games :)
[21:36:53] <Yuv422> strange
[21:37:09] <Dominus> "Let's hope he doesn't put that nice engine one ice!" are the final words
[21:37:27] <Yuv422> hehe
[21:37:43] <Yuv422> nah I'm in it to completion now
[21:37:44] <Dominus> the article author can't decide whether to talk about engine author or authors :)
[21:37:52] <Yuv422> for u6 game(s) at least ;-)
[21:38:11] <Dominus> I *think* the article was translated from english
[21:38:18] <Yuv422> right
[21:38:25] <Dominus> pentagram article is good too
[21:38:33] <Yuv422> are there screenshots?
[21:38:59] <Dominus> quite informative I think but I can't judge, I know too much already :)
[21:39:10] <Dominus> I'll post the two pages
[21:39:21] <Yuv422> great thanks
[21:39:48] <Yuv422> I'm just logging in to the amgia shop to buy my hard copy
[21:40:01] <Yuv422> now do I need the cover cd??? ;-)
[21:40:26] <Dominus> I'd say yes
[21:40:44] <Yuv422> yeah make it complete
[21:40:46] <Dominus> it probably comes with the binaries since the article just points at the project pages
[21:41:10] <Dominus> and if there are no sources included you can go after them because of a gpl violation :)
[21:41:45] <Yuv422> hehe, make them do a reprint
[21:44:04] <Dominus> https://www.dropbox.com/gallery/7737184/1/amiga?h=e52d40
[21:44:07] <Dominus> the two pages
[21:44:15] <Dominus> the original is in b/w
[21:45:05] <Dominus> I'm grabbing the english one as well, I think
[21:45:27] <Yuv422> wow it's quite a long review
[21:48:12] <Dominus> better save that page, I'll delete it at some point :)
[21:48:14] <Yuv422> 3,75 euro for shipping that's not too bad to australia
[21:48:37] <Dominus> but grabbing the scummvm article now as well and show them to the #scummvm folks :)
[21:48:49] <Yuv422> :)
[21:49:20] <Dominus> if you reload the dropbox page you can see that article as well
[21:50:46] <Yuv422> cool thanks
[21:51:00] <Yuv422> hehe I just got redirected to the german paypal
[21:52:05] <Dominus> funnily I can *only* buy the German pdf and not the hard copy :)
[21:52:40] <Yuv422> there was an english option on the website
[21:52:54] <Yuv422> maybe you need to select that to get the english hardcopy
[21:54:07] <Dominus> sorry, I was unclear. I meant that I can get the pdf, the english hard copy, cover cd, subscription but not the German hard copy :)
[21:54:23] <Yuv422> oh
[21:54:32] <Yuv422> strange
[21:54:41] <Dominus> makes my suspicion that it is a translated thing even stronger :)
[21:55:50] <Yuv422> it's interesting that they didn't show any in-game shots for scummvm
[21:57:46] <Dominus> can you actually get the mag? if not I can order two and send one to australia
[21:58:04] <Yuv422> I'm ok
[21:58:09] <Yuv422> just completed the order now
[21:58:14] <Yuv422> thanks for the offer though
[21:58:58] <Yuv422> I see what you mean about the paypal processing now
[21:59:11] <Dominus> he he
[21:59:12] <Yuv422> it isn't connected automatically
[21:59:47] <Dominus> yeah, some poor soul is going to see that austrlain order tomorrow and will think of how to get more money from you!
[22:00:22] <Yuv422> it cost me $18AUD
[22:00:43] <Dominus> oh, that's some money after all
[22:01:24] <Yuv422> funnily enough that's what a magazine costs to by at the shop here.
[22:01:38] <Yuv422> by/buy
[22:06:02] <Dominus> I'll have to go through their archive, they mention exult so there is probably an article on that as well
[22:11:00] <Dominus> found the exult article http://www.amigafuture.de/kb.php?mode=article&k=1188
[22:14:13] <Dominus> ah the german hard copy is sold out that's why I can't order it
[22:21:17] <Yuv422> ah k
[22:21:28] <Yuv422> that would mean that maybe it's a german based mag?
[22:23:25] <Dominus> originally. they might collaborate with an english mag...
[22:38:43] <Yuv422> maybe you can only buy the pdf version after the print version sells out
[22:39:01] <Dominus> hmm, that would make sense in an evil way :)
[22:45:54] <Yuv422> I'm off now
[22:45:57] <Yuv422> cya
[22:46:07] <Yuv422> thanks for posting the scans. :-)
[22:46:22] <Yuv422> I'm looking forward to my print copy arriving now. :-)
