[01:31:14] --> Yuv422 has joined #nuvie
[01:31:27] <Yuv422> hello
[01:36:54] <SB-X> hi
[01:37:46] <Yuv422> hey sbx
[01:38:34] <Yuv422> I've just comited my unpack portrat changes
[01:38:55] <Yuv422> MD/SE portraits are wrapped in a lib_n
[01:39:20] <Yuv422> so I just load that into a U6Lib_n then extract it from that with the U6Shape class
[01:39:30] <Yuv422> so we don't need to modify U6Shape
[01:41:48] <Yuv422> http://nuvie.sourceforge.net/phorum/read.php?f=1&i=790&t=790
[01:43:35] <SB-X> k
[01:43:50] <SB-X> that's good
[01:44:15] <SB-X> the guy making the SE mod for Exult responded to your post on the Exult forum
[01:45:19] <SB-X> as for that question, we could only recommend he take a look at Exult and learn Usecode for now
[01:45:48] <SB-X> if he wants to play with an Ultima engine
[01:46:55] <SB-X> It would be cool to extend the magic scripting to usecode in the future, but we don't even have magic spells yet.
[01:49:06] <Yuv422> hehe yeah
[01:49:28] <Yuv422> I think the guy from the exult forum will want a precompiled win32 app
[01:50:01] <Yuv422> the util also unpacks MD portraits too
[02:05:30] <SB-X> what about other shapes?
[02:05:50] <Yuv422> hehe no
[02:05:58] <Yuv422> but it wouldn't be hard to change it
[02:06:19] <Yuv422> it's hard coded for mdpal, sepal mdfaces.lzc faces.lzc
[02:08:41] <SB-X> he said U6Edit will load MD's map but not SE's
[02:08:54] <SB-X> so he needs some other way to get the tiles

[02:25:44] --> Yuv422 has joined #nuvie
[02:26:16] <Yuv422> isn't there a tilegfx on the web somewhere
[02:27:39] <Yuv422> http://www.graf.torun.pl/~rackne/images/setiles.GIF
[02:34:01] <SB-X> Ah, good find. If I'd seen that before I forgot about it.
[02:34:49] <Yuv422> :)
[04:22:49] <Yuv422> exult forum seems to be getting a bit of spam lately
[05:44:16] <Yuv422> I'm just adding support for magically locked doors and chests
[06:36:36] --- servus_ is now known as servus
[07:56:34] <Yuv422> hmm more u6 bugs
[07:56:50] <Yuv422> if I cast vanish on a picture
[07:56:57] <Yuv422> then cast reappear
[07:57:15] <Yuv422> it loses its look description
[08:00:35] <Yuv422> hehe I can use the same bug to hotwire skiffs too
[08:00:56] * Yuv422 sails off in a skiff without a valid deed.
[08:01:29] <servus> Look, Iolo, this skiff has the ignition system of a 1968 Ford Pacer!
[08:02:51] <Yuv422> :)
[08:08:59] <SB-X> haha
[08:09:06] <SB-X> hi servus and Yuv422, I forgot you were in here
[08:10:53] <servus> Eek!
[08:11:54] <SB-X> don't be scared
[08:25:07] <-- Yuv422 has left IRC (Read error: 110 (Connection timed out))
[08:26:14] --> Yuv422 has joined #nuvie
[08:26:42] <Yuv422> hey SB-X
[08:26:45] <Yuv422> hey servus
[08:27:04] <Yuv422> the objn is stored in objlist
[08:27:08] <Yuv422> at 0x1c13
[08:27:23] <Yuv422> but it doesn't store the qual/qty
[08:27:28] <Yuv422> which isn't good
[08:28:10] <Yuv422> I'm doing some work on the magic system
[08:28:28] <Yuv422> we need an object selector
[08:28:45] <Yuv422> as most magic requires a map selection
[08:29:21] <Yuv422> I want to add some vital spells so it is possible to finish the game
[08:29:26] <Yuv422> unlock magic
[08:29:30] <Yuv422> pickpocket
[08:29:37] <Yuv422> telekinesis
[08:30:53] <Yuv422> all the bugs in the original make me sad. :-(
[08:31:50] <SB-X> "<SB-X> don't be scared" -> unless Exult3D's Iolo is running towards you that is: http://madness.sourceforge.net/files/AvatarWM.png
[08:32:17] <SB-X> hehe sorry remembered that pic for some reason and had to link to it again
[08:32:31] <SB-X> usecode can select objects
[08:32:53] <Yuv422> could we use that in Magic?
[08:33:09] <SB-X> i meant you could do the same thing, but i think luteijn wanted to do something different
[08:33:21] <Yuv422> ah k
[08:33:27] <Yuv422> can you remember what that was?
[08:33:50] <SB-X> he once expressed a desire to change how items are returned to usecode gets items, so I assume he'd want it done differently in the spellcasting system too
[08:33:53] <SB-X> nope
[08:33:59] <Yuv422> shrink wrapped avatar!
[08:34:21] <SB-X> s/ gets items//
[08:34:43] <SB-X> notice how creepy iolo looks
[08:37:13] <Yuv422> hehe

[08:52:45] --> Yuv422 has joined #nuvie
[08:58:49] <Yuv422> bbl
[11:29:04] <Yuv422> does anyone know how to use the gate travel spell?
[11:31:34] <wjp> I think in U6 you specify which moongate to travel to?

[11:49:14] --> Yuv422 has joined #nuvie
[11:50:50] <Yuv422> hey wjp
[11:51:23] <Yuv422> it's really annoying, my irc client disconnects and I don't even know
[11:51:42] <Yuv422> I only realise when it reconnects 10 minutes later. :(
[11:51:52] <Yuv422> it's a free text input
[11:52:08] <Yuv422> but it doesn't seem to respond to any input I give it
[11:52:22] <Yuv422> I tried numbers and words
[11:52:27] <Yuv422> like new moon
[11:52:28] <Yuv422> etc
[11:55:03] <wjp> a simple 1 worked here in dosbox
[11:55:37] <Yuv422> hmm
[11:55:44] <Yuv422> what did it do?
[11:55:50] <Yuv422> I thought I tried 1
[11:57:49] <wjp> it teleported the party to a moongate
[12:01:37] <Yuv422> hmm I just hear a chime sound
[12:01:46] <Yuv422> but nothing happens
[12:02:07] <Yuv422> maybe it needs to be in a certain moon phase
[12:09:23] <wjp> hm, not all numbers from 1-8 seem to work here
