[17:13:14] <wjp> hi
[17:25:24] <watt> hey.... I've been playing too much GTA vice city.. and my sister dragged away from the comp
[17:26:16] <Colourless> :-)
[17:26:16] <wjp> btw, I noticed you weren't in the AUTHORS file yet. Want to add yourself or want me to do it? :-)
[17:26:48] <watt> oh... hmm, I'll do it.. I got a bit to commit in a little while
[18:46:15] --> Dominus has joined #pentagram
[18:46:16] --- ChanServ gives channel operator status to Dominus
[18:46:44] <Dominus> hi
[18:46:58] <Colourless> hi
[18:47:21] <Dominus> watt: a late "welcome to the team" greeting
[18:47:49] <Colourless> hey... don't you greet him... he makes the rest of us look bad! :-)
[18:50:00] <Dominus> yup, he does. quite active.
[18:50:10] <Dominus> new blood is always fresh
[19:03:54] <Dominus> now let's see how all that new stuff looks like (or even if it compiles)
[19:05:14] <Dominus> nice thing about our new config system is that it no longer "clashes" with the old CVS
[19:05:51] <watt> Hi Dominus... err.. I keep responding late today.
[19:06:04] <Dominus> he he
[19:06:06] <wjp> hm, never was a problem for me since old got its config file from the current directory while new got it from ~/.pentagram
[19:06:18] <wjp> hah, you call 20 minutes late? :-)
[19:06:22] <Colourless> watt, your 19 minutes will never compare to the times that wjp and I get
[19:06:29] <wjp> you're not even _close_ to my record ;-)
[19:06:34] <Colourless> 1 hour... 2 hours... you have a long way to go yet
[19:07:43] <watt> well, I'm just stuck in the other room so I come back over every 20 minutes... updating my sister's window 98 machine
[19:07:47] * watt shudders
[19:08:36] <Dominus> Colourless: some odd problem I have in XP, maybe you have an idea: if I run certain programs like Irfan View and Textpad in Fullscreen mode and exit them I sometimes have applications stuck in the foreground
[19:08:45] <watt> eeew... windows 98..... yuck. I really want to install 2k on it.
[19:08:46] <Dominus> covering even the active tasks
[19:09:03] <Colourless> Dominus, no idea
[19:09:08] <Dominus> ok
[19:09:12] <Dominus> thanks
[19:10:32] * wjp has this weird cosmetic thingie in the W98 I'm currently playing Deus Ex in
[19:10:59] <wjp> for some reason the little vertical bars around the quicklaunch bar on the panel are partly black
[19:11:05] <wjp> and they're behaving really oddly
[19:11:32] <Colourless> probably graphics driver related
[19:11:53] <wjp> hm, I guess I could try some newer nvidia drivers
[19:14:30] * Dominus should really really start deus ex someday...

[20:02:24] --- sbx|afk is now known as sbx
[20:17:40] <sbx> if anyone is curious, I was able to stop the slow loading/transition times in Fallout2 by doing the LARGE install and not HUMONGOUS
[20:18:00] <sbx> but since nobody here had the same problem you are probably not too curious to know the solution
[20:19:26] <wjp> did you get the latest patch
[20:19:27] <wjp> ?
[20:21:03] <sbx> yep
[20:21:26] <sbx> 1.02d
[20:21:40] <sbx> is the latest on the interplay site
[20:42:08] --> VeryFluffy has joined #pentagram
[20:42:08] <-- SuperFluffy has left IRC (Read error: 54 (Connection reset by peer))
[20:48:12] <sbx> in fact I am going to go play Fallout2 now
[20:48:13] <sbx> cya
[20:48:14] <-- sbx has left IRC ()
[20:48:41] * watt smacks head - forgot to init the damn gump
[20:50:29] <watt> wondering why it refused to show up
[21:11:11] <-- Colourless has left IRC ("casts invisibility")
[21:11:31] <-- Dominus has left IRC ("a pooka invited me for a drink")
[21:12:43] <watt> Seems strange hidden ButtonGumps can still be pressed.
[21:13:12] <wjp> how are they hidden?
[21:13:27] <watt> or.. I should say even if one container holding them is hidden
[21:13:47] <watt> HideGump on their parent's parent
[21:15:13] <watt> I might have abused how that's supposed to work though
[21:17:13] <wjp> hm, I see
[21:17:27] <wjp> might want to check that hidden flag in other places as well
[21:18:54] <watt> and perhaps have IsHidden() return call it's parent's IsHidden() as well
[21:24:37] <watt> actually.. I think I got it fixed without using my last comment.
[21:24:40] <wjp> I wonder if we use hidden gumps at all currently
[21:25:02] <watt> we will.... Evil Grin
[21:25:08] <watt> hehe
[21:26:17] <wjp> somehow I suspected as much :-)
[21:26:17] <watt> excellent... just a quick check for IsHidden in OnMouseDown in Gump.cpp
[21:26:27] <wjp> hm
[21:26:39] <wjp> might want to move that 'up' a bit
[21:27:21] <wjp> although I'm not entirely sure
[21:27:53] <watt> we'll see.
[21:41:00] <wjp> I should go; g'night
