[02:48:58] <servus> Whoa. I just, like, saw FOSS in action.
[06:20:34] --> Jenna_ has joined #pentagram
[06:20:56] <Jenna_> Good morning everyone
[06:25:08] <Jenna_> Well, if everyone is sleeping I will come back later... good night!

[18:12:43] <Jenna_> Anyone alive now? ;)
[18:20:37] <Jenna_> Well, it seems one of my problems was answered yesterday...
[18:21:19] <Jenna_> But I can't seem to cast Create Golem by either the debug menu or the normal way... anyone know of this?
[18:24:17] <Jenna_> Well, thanks for the game guys! Much love and chicken nuggets! Bye!
[18:24:21] <-- Jenna_ has left #pentagram ()
[19:15:58] <wjp> create golem... hm, I'll have to look at that
[19:16:12] <wjp> I can create one, but only at extremely close range, it seems
[20:08:11] --> Jenna_ has joined #pentagram
[20:24:51] <wjp> hi
[20:25:03] <wjp> I'll look into the golem problem
[20:25:29] <wjp> I can create golems, by the way, but only at very short range
[20:32:14] <Jenna_> hm... I can't seem to do it at any range
[20:33:30] <Jenna_> I will try again
[20:35:32] <Jenna_> Aha, I have it now...
[20:37:28] <Jenna_> it seems to be very particular about where i cast it
[20:41:25] <Jenna_> I can't seem to cast it on a stone tile, so I can't get through the necromancer part
[21:04:24] <wjp> you need to cast it on dirt
[21:04:45] <wjp> there's a dirt spot right outside the only doors where you need the golem, isn't there?
[21:06:45] <Jenna_> there's a second set of doors that needs to be opened
[21:06:57] <Jenna_> i didn't see any dirt around...
[21:07:01] <wjp> oh?
[21:07:09] <wjp> are you sure you aren't missing a key?
[21:07:25] <Jenna_> I checked the walkthrough ;)
[21:07:45] <wjp> unfortunately walkthroughs are often wrong
[21:08:03] <Jenna_> hmm... none of the keys i have worked
[21:08:07] <wjp> does it tell you to summon a golem inside the doors?
[21:08:14] <wjp> to get to the heart of earth?
[21:08:56] <Jenna_> it doesn't say, but I will check and see if it works
[21:09:17] <wjp> no, I meant that as something that some walkthrough say you need (but you don't need that)
[21:09:18] --> Kohlrabi has joined #pentagram
[21:09:41] <wjp> which doors are you trying to open?
[21:10:38] <Jenna_> to the heart of the earth
[21:10:54] <wjp> the key for that is in another part of the halls of the dead
[21:11:07] <Jenna_> hm...
[21:11:17] <Jenna_> okay then, sorry to bother you
[21:11:34] <wjp> don't worry about it :-)
[21:12:53] <-- Kohlrabi has left IRC (Read error: 104 (Connection reset by peer))
[21:14:55] --> Kohlrabi has joined #pentagram
[21:23:00] <Jenna_> This game is much more complicated than I remember!
[21:23:09] <Jenna_> Lots of fun though. Thanks for bringing it back!
[21:23:24] <wjp> I'm glad you're enjoying it :-)
[21:23:33] <wjp> how's pentagram behaving?
[21:25:25] <Jenna_> mostly pretty good
[21:25:47] <Jenna_> I am having a problem with containers, but I see in the log that you have addressed that issue
[21:26:27] <Jenna_> hm... also I can't seem to read plaques
[21:26:42] <wjp> I fixed a bug yesterday where it was sometimes (often) not possible to move items that are in containers
[21:26:54] <wjp> plaques? let me take a look
[21:27:22] <wjp> oh, indeed
[21:27:28] <wjp> I wonder how that happened
[21:28:42] <wjp> that's what I get from changing the "Can the avatar reach this object?" code... suddenly all kinds of items appear to be out of range
[21:30:21] <wjp> that's probably causing the golem issue as well, but I'll have to look closer at that sometime
[21:31:27] <Jenna_> Other than that, it is going very well... although I am not too far into the game right now
[21:32:00] <wjp> hm, you're not supposed to get the heart of earth very early in the game, thoug
[21:32:04] <wjp> h
[21:32:33] <wjp> getting it early might not have any negative consequences, though, but I'm not sure about that
[21:34:34] <Jenna_> Oh? I always thought of the necromancer arc as early... perhaps I am farther than I thought?
[21:36:16] <wjp> the necromancer part is indeed early, but getting the heart of earth is not really a part of that initially
[21:36:29] <wjp> did you get any in-game indications you need it?
[21:36:29] <Jenna_> hm
[21:37:06] <Jenna_> no... here i go again, getting ahead of myself
