[20:38:11] <Dominus> hi
[20:38:19] <watt> yo
[20:39:43] <watt> Anything new and interesting?
[20:39:57] <Dominus> hmmmmmmmm
[20:39:59] <Dominus> no :)
[20:40:37] <watt> Me neither.
[20:41:27] <wizardrydragon> Well, I actually tried pentagram and it doesnt explode like it used to in 05 when i used it :)
[20:41:52] <watt> this is good.
[20:41:55] <wizardrydragon> *it did when I
[20:41:59] <wizardrydragon> Indeed it is good.
[20:42:07] <wizardrydragon> Still no sorcery though
[20:42:09] <wizardrydragon> Sorrow
[20:43:03] <watt> Really? Thought that was working.. then again, I've yet to actually play through on Pentagram again since last I tried.
[20:43:28] <wizardrydragon> The spell support seems sketchy at best
[20:43:29] <Dominus> I thought it was working, too
[20:43:56] <wizardrydragon> The candles were annyoing enough in plain U8, but theyre damn near hellish trying to place them in Pentagram :P
[20:44:19] <Dominus> he he
[20:44:44] <Dominus> so we are back on the satanism topic people are searching for here
[20:44:53] * wizardrydragon gave up after a while.
[20:45:01] <wizardrydragon> Hey I rather liked the sorcerer.
[20:45:05] <wizardrydragon> *s
[20:45:47] <wizardrydragon> If hyou don't like someone, blow them up.
[20:45:55] <wizardrydragon> Much easier to follow than the Virtues :)
[20:45:59] <watt> I thought we were on the topic of Spoon!
[20:46:57] <Dominus> spoon? there is no spoon!
[20:47:09] <Dominus> virtues? there are no virtues on pagan!
[20:47:27] <wizardrydragon> "But I'm the Avatar!"
[20:47:28] <wizardrydragon> :)
[20:47:59] <Dominus> "no one knows of the Avatar!"
[20:48:35] <wizardrydragon> hehe
[20:48:42] <wizardrydragon> I thought those lines were hilarious
[20:49:09] <wizardrydragon> Im just like, umm dude, what part of youre in another world didnt you grasp?
[21:12:04] <watt> I was like.. whose is the avatar? Is that that dude the giant evil red hand dropped? U8 was the first ultima I played - which was probably why I liked it - not tainted by previous games.
[21:12:36] <wizardrydragon> I think Ultima VIII was a good game
[21:13:14] <wizardrydragon> it was just a horrible Ultima
[21:13:19] <wizardrydragon> :)
[22:12:10] <-- watt has left IRC (Read error: 60 (Operation timed out))
[22:17:13] <servus> There are several cases where beings from another world know of the Avatar of Britannia.
[22:31:37] --> Colourless has joined #Pentagram
[22:31:37] --- ChanServ gives channel operator status to Colourless
[22:32:11] <sbx|afk> hi Colourless
[22:32:14] --- sbx|afk is now known as SB-X
[22:32:30] <SB-X> and everyone else
[22:32:40] <Dominus> hi Colourless
[22:32:43] <Dominus> hi sb-x
[22:33:00] <Dominus> glad everything is working out in dosbox for you :)
[22:33:03] <SB-X> hell
[22:33:09] <SB-X> oops
[22:33:10] <SB-X> hello*
[22:33:18] <SB-X> o
[22:33:19] <SB-X> thanks
[22:33:21] <Dominus> hell is appropiate here :)
[22:33:44] <SB-X> true, pyros does look like something from there
[22:34:06] <wizardrydragon> Setting Pyros free is fun.
[22:34:17] * wizardrydragon feels his karma take a -20 hit just for saying that.
[22:34:28] <Colourless> hi
[22:35:40] <SB-X> Dominus: I got to level 10 in Prince of Persia and havn't played it since then. I've already tried playing with my gamepad and JoyToKey and it works fine so I'll use the gamepad again next time.
[22:36:17] <SB-X> it works great for playing now, and I can even use the "shoulder buttons" L & R to jump
[22:36:29] <SB-X> although it stops the character from running
[22:37:06] <Dominus> there might actually be a new release of dosbox on the way.
[22:37:25] <Dominus> in the beta forum we were asked to test a final beta a couple of days ago
[22:37:42] <Dominus> of course CVS is exactly that :)
[22:39:26] <Colourless> anything special in it?
[22:39:58] <Dominus> more joystick options
[22:40:11] <Dominus> that actually make some Origin games behave
[22:41:04] <Dominus> keyboard layouts to load in the conf, and supposedly a joystick mapping (have to try that)
[22:41:42] <Dominus> auto core switcher, switches to normal/dynamic when it thinks it is appropiate
[22:42:16] <Dominus> more than 256 colours in Windows 3.11, but that is still very buggy and unusable
[22:42:56] <SB-X> hmm I've never tried running Windows 3.1 in Dosbox
[22:43:30] <Dominus> runs quite nice, I've written a quick&dirty guide on how to run/install it on dosbox
[22:43:46] <SB-X> what would you want/need it for?
[22:44:17] <Colourless> because windows 3.1 underdos box is better at running win3.1 programs than using WOW in XP
[22:44:31] <Dominus> I have this ONE shareware game that doesn't run good on NT based Windows
[22:44:35] <Colourless> and in X64 you have no choice
[22:45:19] <Dominus> and windows 95 runs a bit more in dosbox cvs but mostly unuseable
[22:46:01] <Colourless> ugh
[22:46:12] <Colourless> now why would anyone want to run Win95 :-)
[22:46:26] <Dominus> I liek that I was able to just take my old backup of my windows 3.11 system with all the nice settings and programs and just run it under dosbox
[22:47:16] <Dominus> at least running it with dosbox is a waste of time (it=Windows 95), better to take a commercial emulator
[22:48:51] <Dominus> the windows 3.x guide on Vogons: http://vogons.zetafleet.com/viewtopic.php?t=9405
[22:51:09] <-- Corvus has left IRC ("Left")
[22:52:16] <SB-X> thanks for the link
[22:52:45] <SB-X> I don't even have a copy of windows3.x though. :)
[22:54:40] <Dominus> he he, I got a WfW with one of my computers and recently found a commercial CD in a thrift shop for 1 Euro with it on it as well
[22:57:53] <-- Kazin has left IRC ("( www.nnscript.de :: NoNameScript 4.02 :: www.XLhost.de )")
[23:03:30] <Dominus> also found th eold game bioforge, which uses a folder called .... gamedat! :)
[23:04:00] <Dominus> and flx files :)
[23:05:38] <SB-X> there is an advertisement for that on the crusader CD
[23:05:53] <SB-X> with other upcoming origin games
[23:06:19] <Dominus> I have no idea what that game is actually about, it refuses to run here on Dosbox, but supposedly runs for toer people
[23:06:54] <Dominus> I got the game CD in a jewel case that has only the back cover and nothing else :(
[23:07:06] <SB-X> it looks nice but I've never played it
[23:24:34] <Dominus> G'night
[23:24:36] <-- Dominus has left IRC ("oh no! not again")
[23:25:24] <SB-X> oops, cya :)
