[15:18:13] <lotusleaf> goetia
[15:18:57] <watt> I feel I'm missing something......
[15:19:18] <watt> 'ello
[15:20:01] <lotusleaf> hi, what's this channel for?
[15:20:32] <watt> Pentagram - a game engine for Ultima 8 - pentagram.sf.net
[15:20:46] <lotusleaf> awesome, thanks
[15:21:03] <lotusleaf> Ultima 8?
[15:21:16] <lotusleaf> are any of the ultimas FOSS?
[15:21:31] <lotusleaf> I remember playing a couple on apple/c= long time ago
[15:24:37] <watt> Don't think so.... remember something about Akalabeth, but I don't remember - I'm pretty sure Ultima 4 was released as freeware at one point to promote ultima online
[15:24:58] <lotusleaf> hmm.. interesting, thx for the info
[15:25:20] <watt> There are however numerous engines for other Ultima games that are open source - but still require the game data itself
[15:25:47] <lotusleaf> so is pentagram a game unto itself?
[15:25:51] <lotusleaf> screenshots look cool
[15:27:28] <lotusleaf> according to the faq, no download available yet?
[15:27:45] <watt> Not exactly - its the engine to run the game - but Ultima 8 is the only game we support
[15:28:23] <lotusleaf> ah, so it's further modifications of the engine for U8?
[15:28:28] <lotusleaf> or a new engine?
[15:28:48] <lotusleaf> does it require a purchased U8 to work?
[15:29:27] <watt> New engine with improvement in some areas - and yes, the original U8 is needed (just hard to find now)
[15:30:20] <lotusleaf> ah, ok, very good, thanks for your patience in responding to my questions :)
[15:30:28] <lotusleaf> it looks interesting, I'll have to bookmark the page for later
[15:30:31] <watt> Windows and OS X downloads are available on site - they should be up to date -
[15:30:41] <watt> Cool.
[15:30:43] <lotusleaf> nix too, right? :)
[15:31:03] <lotusleaf> *nix
[15:31:09] <lotusleaf> or is your project win/osx only?
[15:31:22] <watt> For *nix its best to compile from source at this point
[15:31:35] <lotusleaf> cvs
[15:31:40] <lotusleaf> ?
[15:31:44] <lotusleaf> I like cvs
[15:31:53] <watt> subversion, actually
[15:31:56] <lotusleaf> ok cool
[15:32:02] <lotusleaf> btw, the goetia is a good buck
[15:32:03] <lotusleaf> book*
[15:32:08] <lotusleaf> it mentions pentagram
[15:32:28] <lotusleaf> have you ever heard of the goetia?
[15:32:39] <watt> No... googling now
[15:32:40] <lotusleaf> some games like FF are using goetic demons in their games
[15:33:23] <lotusleaf> watt: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Goetia
[15:33:51] <lotusleaf> they are powerful spirits
[15:35:35] <watt> New to me... interesting
[15:36:00] <lotusleaf> yup, and they have a great intellect
