[18:26:20] * wjp hmms.. survived another busy week (study-related) :-)
[18:26:37] <wjp> I should have some free evenings again now :-)
[18:27:22] <Colourless> no you wont, you will be busy working on pentagram
[18:27:53] <wjp> *sniff* :-)
[18:28:18] <wjp> speaking of which, how's the shape drawing coming along? :-)
[18:28:44] <wjp> what exactly are you working on, btw?
[18:29:51] <Colourless> discussed it a bit with darke the other day, and things are going to be a bit different to the 'old' code.
[18:29:59] <Colourless> which wasn't my original idea
[18:31:50] <Colourless> the 'old' code just reads straight from a uint8[] buffer, which is the wrong way of doing things because of byte ordering issues. Having to do (data[i] | data[i+1] << 8 | data[i+2] << 16 | data[i+3] << 24) is the wrong way of doing things in the shape drawing code
[18:32:10] * wjp nods
[18:32:55] <Colourless> turns out, i'm going to using a structure simliar to the ConvertShape structure to draw from, since it reads all the shape data platform independantly. all that will be left as a uint8[] buffer is the rle data itself
[18:33:37] <wjp> sounds good
[18:34:01] <wjp> how are you planning on doing the multiple shape formats?
[18:34:12] <wjp> convert before running? convert on load?
[18:34:30] <Colourless> pre-convert all shapes
[18:35:00] <Colourless> the 'master plan' would require it anyway since the idea was to move away from having things in flexes
[18:35:16] <wjp> it was? :-)
[18:35:39] <Colourless> yes, as far as darke and i was concerned it was :-)
[18:35:54] <wjp> where will they be stored then?
[18:36:36] <Colourless> well, remember the idea of mounting zip files in the FileSystem
[18:36:48] * wjp nods
[18:37:14] <wjp> so the separate shapes will be loose files (packed in zips possibly)
[18:37:18] <Colourless> each shape flex would be converted to a zip file, with each entry in the flex being a different file in a subdir
[18:37:30] <Colourless> yes
