[00:44:39] <Yuv422> I think I'm going to deviate a bit from the original with the nuvie rain effect
[00:45:21] <Yuv422> the original used a palette shift to make the rain standout on any colour pixel
[00:45:45] <Yuv422> but I can't shift the mapwindow pixels because they are already in 16/32bit format
[00:46:15] <Yuv422> so I'm looking at doing a blue two pixel line for each rain drop

[10:24:17] <wjp> what kind of palette shift did it do for rain?
[10:25:57] <wjp> since "make the rain standout on any colour pixel" is something that sounds more suitable to direct RGB colour manipulation rather than palette index changes
[10:31:42] <Yuv422> hi Willem
[10:31:52] <wjp> hi :-)
[10:32:00] <Yuv422> I'm not sure how the original rain effect works
[10:32:11] <Yuv422> it uses code in the vga driver
[10:32:17] <Yuv422> which isn't loaded in my idb
[10:32:31] <Yuv422> I guess I could run it through idados
[10:32:40] <Yuv422> I
[10:33:27] <Yuv422> I never thought the original rain effect loked any good
[10:33:31] <Yuv422> looked
[10:33:36] <wjp> should be able to tell quite a bit from a number of successive screenshots
[10:33:41] <wjp> heh
[10:33:50] <wjp> in that case, just ignoring it might also be good :-)
[10:36:15] <Yuv422> did you know there is a 1 in 1000 chance of losing your storm cloak each game minute
[10:36:21] <Yuv422> if you are using it
[10:37:11] <wjp> hm, no
[10:37:39] <wjp> interesting way of handling a limited lifetime
