[19:52:53] <distempr> Spoonman!!
[19:53:36] <wjp> um, hi :-)
[19:54:18] <distempr> Heh, you know.. I'm gonna go buy ultima8 again just to try this thing. Kinda pissed that I gave it away...
[19:54:54] <wjp> might take some time before everything works in pentagram, though...
[19:55:06] <distempr> Yeah, I'm just itching to work on a project.
[19:56:04] <distempr> Though I've never worked on game code...
[19:56:12] <distempr> So I'm gonna play around see what I can poke at.
[19:56:54] <distempr> MMORPG Here we come! :P
[19:56:58] <Colourless> don't poke too much, it might bite back
[19:57:26] <distempr> Heh it's cool, I just need to get back into the C++ fray since I've been c'ing for the last year...
[19:58:28] <distempr> The coolest part is going to be trying to compile on x86_64. Though I'd expect it to work anyway.
[19:58:38] <Colourless> should work fine
[19:58:53] <distempr> Yeah, is there much asm in there?
[19:58:59] <distempr> Meh, I should just grab the source.
[19:59:00] <Colourless> a little bit
[19:59:03] <Colourless> not much
[19:59:20] <Colourless> asm is only for mmx
[19:59:48] <Colourless> mmx scale2x scaler and also for some optimized fill32 code
[20:00:08] <distempr> Ok, I remember when my 486sx20 had troubles running U8
[20:00:43] <distempr> What's the target OS and arch? Pretty much everything?
[20:00:47] <Colourless> anything
[20:01:17] <distempr> It'll probably need an installer or something... cool... :)
[20:01:22] <Colourless> no idea if the inline asm code will compile under x86-64
[20:01:38] * distempr looks at Amazon and chokes at the 54.99 price for a used copy of Ultima Collection
[20:02:16] <distempr> Well I'm on one now, I should give it a shot.
[20:02:58] <distempr> Is U8 stuck in 320x200 mode?
[20:03:22] <distempr> I mean.. is it sprite based or can it be scaled up?
[20:03:29] <Colourless> sprites
[20:03:51] <Colourless> we have advanced scalers that can scale up the image from 320x200 to other resolutions
[20:04:00] <distempr> Seriously? ... wow nice.
[20:04:10] <Colourless> by default we render at 320x200 and scale up to 640x480
[20:05:08] <distempr> Very nice. Any place anyone of you can recommend I buy it? 50+ seems steep :x
[20:05:16] <Colourless> no idea
[20:05:34] <Colourless> on ebay you can often find things cheap
[20:10:28] <distempr> Yep, 49.99 there too :)
