[04:58:14] <Colourless> sound sound sound.... hmm yeah.... no real plans going on there. All I can say is this DO NOT base anything from exults code. K
[04:58:33] <Colourless> [22:21:01] <Fingolfin> and the guardsmen pikes stick through the ceiling of the tenebrae palace
[04:58:40] <Colourless> arg, I know.... it's difficult to fix
[04:59:08] <Colourless> i don't know the proper way to do occlusions
[05:00:48] <Colourless> anyway for sounds my only real plans on was doing something 'slightly' abstract so it would be possible to change sound drivers to something radically different with few problems
[05:06:25] <Colourless> i'll discuss things later

[11:05:51] <wjp> Colourless: quick question: when does spring start in Australia? Around the 21st of september?
[11:06:16] <Colourless> yes
[11:06:28] <wjp> we have an Australian here who claims it's the 1st of sept...
[11:06:45] <Colourless> eh, it's all up to debate
[11:06:51] <Colourless> depends who you ask
[11:07:14] <wjp> autumn starts here officially on the 21st (or 22nd or 23rd or something)
[11:08:31] <wjp> ah well, it's not particularly important :-)
[11:09:39] <Fl00der> I think it's autumn already :P
[11:09:50] <Fl00der> my calendar says 1st of septemper :P

[17:43:22] <wjp> hm, preparing a sorcery spell doesn't seem to work :/
[17:43:22] <wjp> complains about candles being misplaced
[17:48:40] <wjp> this is not a fun function to debug :-(
[18:01:00] <wjp> ok, it does seem to recognize the candles are in the right place, but something is going wrong with the counting
[18:12:44] * wjp hmmms
[18:12:51] <Colourless> omething amiss?
[18:13:05] <wjp> a list seems to mysteriously disappear
[18:13:49] <wjp> push list [BP-08h] (5 elements)
[18:14:06] <wjp> (note that "push list" makes a copy, so the list in [BP-08h] shouldn't be touched by this)
[18:14:12] <wjp> then just a bit later
[18:14:21] <wjp> push list [BP-08h] (0 elements)
[18:14:35] <Colourless> uh oh... bad news that
[18:16:45] <wjp> that's the list with ObjIds of the candles, btw
[18:17:15] <Colourless> i was guessing as much
[18:20:47] <wjp> oh, this is interesting
[18:21:17] <wjp> 'appendList' appears to be freeing the list it's appending from
[18:21:56] <wjp> that may be desirable for the opcode, but not for the UCList function...
[18:26:35] <wjp> ok, it's recognizing the candles now but claiming my reagents are wrong
[18:26:36] <Colourless> got to wonder what else that causes a problem for
[18:26:41] <wjp> indeed
[18:26:57] <wjp> most of the time a list is freed in usecode after a 'push list' but not always

[19:19:21] --- ChanServ gives channel operator status to Fingolfin
[19:23:25] <wjp> hi Fingolfin
[19:25:29] <Fingolfin> hi
[19:36:39] * wjp sighs... I want a usecode debugger :-)
[19:36:55] <wjp> (unfortunately I'm fairly I'd have to write one myself :-) )
[19:37:00] <wjp> s/fairly/fairly sure/
[19:49:34] <Fingolfin> well well well
[19:49:40] <Fingolfin> where's the problem already???
[19:49:41] <Fingolfin> ;-)
[20:08:37] <wjp> ugh
[20:08:50] <wjp> it seems to be a bit pickier about reagent placement than I remembered
[20:09:00] <wjp> but it segfaulted after finishing that spell
[20:26:30] <Fingolfin> actually, reagant placement was one of the major PITAs in U8 for me
[20:26:38] <Fingolfin> I spent a lot of time pixel tweaking tha
[20:26:39] <Fingolfin> t
[20:26:47] <Fingolfin> though I played it before the patch was made
[20:27:00] <Fingolfin> I think the U8 patch made reagant placement far less annoying
[20:27:39] <wjp> this is the patched one :-)
[20:30:21] <-- Fingolfin has left IRC ("42")
[20:31:16] <wjp> valgrind errors in UCProcess::terminate... hmmm
[20:36:02] <Colourless> time for me to be off
[20:36:07] <Colourless> cya
[20:36:10] <-- Colourless has left IRC ("casts improved invisibility")
[21:11:52] <wjp> oooh, evil bug :-)
[21:12:05] <wjp> well, let's see if that fixed the spellcasting
[21:12:40] <wjp> yay :-)
[21:24:24] <wjp> ok, passed Vardion's test
[21:26:50] <wjp> entered the Obsidian Fortress... we'll see how that goes tomorrow :-)
