[09:13:43] <Colourless> hi
[09:15:21] <Darke> Greetings, all conqueror leader of the known world! *bow*
[09:16:15] * Colourless notes that the bunnys known world must be pretty small
[09:17:40] <Darke> What? You didn't manage to take over the world lastnight? My sympathies.
[09:18:41] <Colourless> i thought i did, but you know how things are with secret take overs
[09:21:01] <Darke> Ah. Such is life I suppose.
[09:22:34] <Colourless> anyway we should wait till pentagram is finished *cough* *splutter* *cough* since that will ensure our inevitable success
[09:24:31] * Darke pencils in 'world domination' under 'heat death of the universe' in his perpetual diary.

[14:30:20] <-- Kirben has left IRC ("System Meltdown")
[17:33:28] <wjp> I've been thinking about monster treasure/loot a bit
[17:34:10] <wjp> I'd like to put most of the 'generic' loot (money, potions, oil flasks, firegems) into u8monsters.ini in some way
[17:35:41] <wjp> it might get slightly ugly since it would involve a certain chance of an item appearing, possibly several items appearing, a choice of frames
[17:37:07] <wjp> maybe a string-based thing like "chance=0.5 count=1 shape=123 frame=1,3; chance=1 count=1-4 shape=456 frame=1-4"
[17:38:00] <wjp> and maybe something like "special=weapon" for the trickier types of treasure
[17:38:34] --> Handshakes has joined #pentagram
[17:43:16] <Colourless> could use indentifiers for loot types
[17:43:30] <Colourless> and have some of the identifiers hard coded if they are too tricky
[17:44:45] <wjp> so there'd be a level of indirection?
[17:45:30] <Colourless> yeah. say specify loot types in say a u8loot.ini and you'd point to those in u8monsters.ini

[17:52:58] <wjp> we could put loot into a more general u8.ini file
[17:52:58] <wjp> (in a [loot] section)
[17:54:31] <Colourless> yeah we could.
[17:54:31] <wjp> we'll probably think of some other things to put there
[17:54:31] <wjp> max stats, for one
[17:54:31] <wjp> maybe str->hp, int->mana multipliers
[17:54:31] <wjp> backpack shape, dead-body gump, ...
[17:54:43] <Colourless> ideally nothing should be absolutely hard coded
[17:56:52] <wjp> I guess I'll get coding :-)
[17:57:33] * Colourless thinks he will do some too... something about flipped bit and tracings and console buffers not properly cleared
[17:58:10] * Colourless will also compile pentagram for the first time in he doesn't know how long
[18:08:45] <Colourless> hmm... that's not good. assertion failed when clicking on devon
[18:11:30] <Colourless> wjp, you broke it
[18:11:39] <Colourless> assert(si->monsterinfo);
[18:11:45] <Colourless> aint going to work with npcs
[18:11:55] <Colourless> uint16 Actor::getDefenseType()
[18:12:01] <Colourless> void Actor::dumpInfo()
[18:12:53] <wjp> oh, I see
[18:13:05] <wjp> in dumpinfo()... sigh :-)
[18:13:51] <wjp> I'll make those functions default to 0
[18:17:33] <wjp> ok, that should be fixed now
[18:17:52] <Colourless> yay
[18:20:54] --> Ember has joined #pentagram
[18:22:48] <Colourless> tracing against flipped shapes works
[18:23:08] <wjp> great
[18:28:00] <Colourless> console now works as it should
[18:32:22] <Colourless> done
[18:32:28] <Colourless> committed
