[10:07:38] <Yjarth> hello folks - posted my stdout.txt content at http://pastebin.com - name:yjarth ultima category: game maker. does anybody find anything unusal (that disables the pentagram.exe)?
[10:09:21] <Yjarth> please answer even if i'm not in this chat anymore. i will look for your answer in the irc-log on the pentagram homepage. thanks.
[10:10:20] <Darke2> Where is your configuration file? The whole 'no configuration files found' looks like a problem.
[10:10:43] <Darke2> Do you have a pentagram.ini in the same directory as the pengtagram executable?
[10:20:21] <Yjarth> isnt the pentagram.ini the configuration file?
[10:20:41] <Darke2> Yes it is.
[10:20:42] <Yjarth> it is definetely in the same directory as the pentagram.exe
[10:21:24] <Darke2> Odd. and you double click on the pentagram.exe and it gives that log file?
[10:21:27] <Yjarth> my pc calls it an "example-datei"
[10:21:38] <Yjarth> "example-file"
[10:21:49] <Darke2> Ah. It needs to be called 'pentagram.ini'.
[10:22:10] <Yjarth> thats already its name
[10:22:38] <Darke2> How do you mean it calls it 'example-file' then?
[10:22:54] <Yjarth> example file is what i can read beneath the name in the left fild of my window
[10:23:00] * Darke2 is kinda stumbling in the dark here, he doesn't use pentagram under windows unfortunately.
[10:23:02] <Darke2> Ahh.
[10:23:30] <Yjarth> youre using linux?
[10:23:41] * Darke2 tries to grab the windows version.
[10:23:42] <Darke2> Yup.
[10:24:52] <Yjarth> ah
[10:24:56] <Yjarth> i think ive got it
[10:25:05] <Darke2> Hrm?
[10:25:13] <Yjarth> my pc didnt show "known file names"
[10:25:29] <Yjarth> ive changed it now and my pc revealed it was still calles pentagram.ini.example
[10:25:37] <Yjarth> not pentagram.ini as it was shown
[10:25:42] * Darke2 ahhs. That explains it! *grin*
[10:25:44] <Yjarth> no i changed it
[10:26:14] <Yjarth> sorry bothering you with such an problem caused by my own stupidity *g*
[10:26:31] <Darke2> No problem. *grin*
[10:28:14] <Yjarth> farewell, fellow admirers of the world of pagan!
[10:28:29] <Darke2> Bye!
[10:28:37] <-- Yjarth has left IRC ()
[11:06:19] <wjp> so maybe we should try pentagram.ini, pentagram.ini.txt and pentagram.ini.example :-)
[11:20:58] <Darke2> I'd try 'pentagram.ini' and if that's not found, try all files starting with 'pentagram.ini' and that should account for everything. *grin*

[18:13:33] <Yjarth> first of all: i enjoyed it very much to hear that atmospherec sound in ultima8 once again and to expereiment with different resolutions. but i noticed something that is probably a bug: i was not able to move things out of container, as long as these containers are not in my backpack.
[18:13:49] <wjp> oh?
[18:14:09] <wjp> hm, did you maybe walk away from the container after opening it?
[18:14:24] <wjp> you can only move things out of it if the container is still in reach
[18:15:33] <Yjarth> i know that ^^
[18:15:53] <Yjarth> i tried it standing as near to the container as possbile
[18:16:09] <Yjarth> so its no "known bug"?
[18:16:13] <wjp> it's broken here too, though
[18:16:14] <wjp> strange
[18:16:52] <wjp> I wonder when I broke it
[18:17:31] <Yjarth> *tried it again*
[18:17:38] <Yjarth> not posible
[18:20:14] <wjp> for some reason it thinks the container is out of range
[18:21:03] <Yjarth> it happened at all four(?) containers at the dock
[18:21:15] <Yjarth> the two barrels, the big chest and the small chest
[18:21:34] <Yjarth> when i take the small chest into my backpack i can take out the key
[18:22:26] <wjp> but you can take the small chest?
[18:22:35] <Yjarth> yes
[18:22:53] <Yjarth> and open it inside my backpack and drag everything out
[18:23:09] <Yjarth> it is possbile to open the other containers too
[18:23:15] <Yjarth> but i cant drag anything out
[18:24:09] <Yjarth> so when you try it with in latest version it works?
[18:24:25] <wjp> no
[18:25:48] <wjp> I should have it fixed soon, though
[18:26:14] <Yjarth> ok
[18:26:24] <wjp> thanks for pointing it out :-)
[18:28:07] <Yjarth> i think it is an interest to all ultima8 enthusiasts that a project like yours will be bug fixed and possbly completed as soon as possbile *g*
[18:28:19] <wjp> ok, I have no idea why this ever worked
[18:30:43] <wjp> fixed now
[18:30:57] <wjp> if you're using a daily snapshot, it should be fixed in the next one
[18:31:14] <Yjarth> great
[18:32:15] <wjp> let me know when you find any more silly bugs like that :-)
