[07:40:27] <servus> So how many of the current Pentagram dev team have completed Pagan in full? Crusader?
[08:01:54] <wjp> I have completed Pagan both in the original U8 and in Pentagram. I haven't played either of the Crusaders for any significant amount of time.
[09:20:29] --- Jett is now known as Darke
[09:20:47] <Darke> I haven't ever finished U8, though I did complete both Crusader games.
[09:24:57] <wjp> I should check if dosbox runs Crusader at a playable speed nowadays
[09:38:16] <Darke> Seems to run acceptably on my machine under vista with it set to 80% cpu cycles. Sound is about a quarter of a second off though. Intro movies are slightly jerky, but I've got them running on high res.
[09:38:53] <Darke> (This is No Regret though, which has a higher minimum req then No Remorse from memory.)

[09:49:40] <Darke> Controls are more painful then I remember them. The ingame cinematics are, however, still cheesy and good. *grin* They seem to run without hitches unlike the intro movie.
[09:49:45] <Darke> Hiya!
[09:58:13] <wjp> uh, a slashdot headline suggests Fallout 3 is/will be banned in .au?
[09:58:23] <wjp> peculiar
[09:58:38] <Colourless> bah hardly
[09:58:51] <wjp> a case of bad headlining?
[09:59:02] <Colourless> anything that isn't rated as being suitable for 15 year olds is banned
[10:00:01] <Colourless> there was an attempt at reforming the games rating system to add in higher ratings but it failed cause the ultra conservative atorney general of sa decided he didn';t like the idea and vetoed it
[10:00:33] <Colourless> fallout3 isnt the first and wont be the last high profile game to be banned
[10:01:57] <wjp> hm, I see; very strange
[10:02:07] <Darke> The irony is that we're quite happy to let games that are rated 18+ in europe (that get censored in the US) into .au as 15+ games.
[10:02:45] <wjp> heh, the Fallout 3 collector's edition comes in a metal VaultTec lunch box :-)
[10:03:55] <Darke> Pointless but neat. *grin*
[10:07:28] <Darke> Interestingly wikipedia's list of banned games in .au hasn't been updated with that information yet. I'm shocked at the time lag. *grin*
[10:09:52] <-- Colourless has left IRC ("casts improved invisibility")
[10:15:34] <wjp> Darke: so, when are your going to work on crusader support in pentagram? :-)
[10:18:33] <Darke> Umm... err... *points* Look over there! It's a flying pig! *escapes!*
