[21:46:04] <wjp> so, where do you think we should put savegames?
[21:47:16] <Dominus> in /savegames (to make it jsut slightly different to the original)
[21:48:23] <Dominus> but seriously I'd say in /game-saves
[21:48:57] <wjp> behind which dir?
[21:49:06] <Dominus> in /u8-saves and /TGWDS-saves
[21:49:08] <wjp> I don't think I want to put them in the actual game dir
[21:49:15] <Dominus> pentagram dir
[21:49:19] * wjp nods
[21:49:28] <wjp> same level as u8-work currently, then
[21:49:32] <Dominus> yep
[21:49:47] <wjp> and u8french-work, u8german-work, ... :-)
[21:50:04] <Dominus> to give people the chance to keep their original as uncluttered as possible
[21:50:21] <Dominus> and u8french-saves,...
[21:50:59] <wjp> I'm intending for things to work without having write access to U8
[21:51:21] <Dominus> maybe use some irritating names like u8fr-whatever and u8de-whatever
[21:51:35] <wjp> well, you can pick those names yourself
[21:51:59] <Dominus> true but we need to give them some defaults to play with :-)
[21:52:02] <wjp> it's just that I named the relevant sections in pentagram.cfg u8french and u8german
[21:52:48] <Dominus> (which should remind us about that exult translation thingy... - don't read this ...)
[21:56:55] * wjp randomly picks a config key name for the savegame path
[21:57:04] <wjp> save?
[21:58:30] <Dominus> is it save?
[21:58:53] <Dominus> (sorry insider joke in my mind)
[21:59:44] <Dominus> savegame_path
[21:59:46] <Dominus> ?
[22:00:02] <wjp> too long, IMHO
[22:00:20] <Dominus> yeah just looked, if it is work then it must be save
[22:00:50] <Dominus> or maybe saves
[22:00:50] <wjp> Darke/Colourless: any thoughts on renaming GUIApp to PentagramApp?
[22:01:46] * wjp wonders if we should encode the game type into the savegame filename somehow
[22:01:49] <wjp> probably not
[22:02:19] <Dominus> why not?
[22:03:34] <wjp> hmm... I miss the dutch "Waarom wel?" in this situation :-)
[22:04:06] <wjp> (wel = kind of like the german 'doch')
[22:04:20] <wjp> and 'waarom' is 'why'
[22:04:50] <Dominus> veeeeeeeeery similarar to our 'warum'
[22:04:59] <Dominus> there goes my spelling
[22:05:01] <wjp> can you remember if fire shrooms cause chain reactions?
[22:05:14] <Dominus> no idea
[22:15:26] <wjp> hm, I should do zipped saves sometime too
[22:15:37] <wjp> the unzipped variety is just a bit big :-)
[22:16:30] <wjp> (zipped saves are a very acceptably 170Kb)
[22:16:55] <Dominus> yeah
[22:17:02] <wjp> s/bly/ble/
[22:17:02] <Dominus> 170 sounds good
[22:17:55] <Dominus> how will you call them now?
[22:18:32] <wjp> "quicksave" :-)
[22:18:58] <Dominus> ok, scratch the 'now'
[22:19:22] <Dominus> in general and in the future when we have more than one savegame :-)
[22:19:22] <wjp> don't know
[22:19:28] <wjp> I'm open to suggestions :-)
[22:20:00] <Dominus> how about "u8save.xxx"? :-)
[22:20:11] <wjp> bad idea :-)
[22:20:38] <Dominus> saveu8.xxx
[22:21:02] <Dominus> I think it is too late to get anything sane from me on first and second try
[22:21:06] <wjp> not that big an improvement :-)
[22:22:09] <Dominus> ok, do we want a file ending (the correct word escapes me right now)? like *.sav?
[22:22:25] <wjp> extension
[22:22:33] <wjp> I don't care much about that
[22:22:40] <wjp> windows users seem to like them, though :-)
[22:22:56] <Dominus> for some odd reason, yes
[22:23:17] <Dominus> but 'I' don't need it either
[22:23:25] <wjp> hm, I should talk to Fingolfin about some aspects of the build system sometime
[22:23:41] <wjp> no objections to .sav, though
[22:24:36] <Dominus> I'm pretty sure we talked about it before and I think colourless had some objection and maybe a better idea
[22:24:57] <Dominus> starting the built in search functions of the logs...
[22:25:05] <Dominus> www.google.com
[22:29:45] <Dominus> can't find it...
[22:37:35] <-- Dominus has left IRC ("a pooka invited me to Charlie's")
[22:45:16] <-- wjp has left IRC ("Zzzz....")
