[11:13:26] <mrdeity> hey guys anyone awake around here?
[11:52:02] <wjp> hi
[11:55:37] <mrdeity> yo
[11:56:18] <mrdeity> i was wondering if i could pick someones brians on the remorse flx format
[11:56:28] <wjp> sure
[11:58:14] <mrdeity> cool
[11:58:53] <mrdeity> i'll come up with something coherent. i've been looking at assembly to much tonight and its numbed my brain
[12:00:44] <-- Colourless has left IRC ()
[12:02:42] <wjp> ok :-)
[12:07:06] <mrdeity> remorse uses the u8 engine so i assume its using the same file format as u8 right?
[12:07:12] <wjp> yes
[12:07:30] <wjp> pentagram can already display crusader maps
[12:07:57] <mrdeity> :D i'll take a look at your source then
[12:08:28] <wjp> we also have collected and written some file formats docs which may be useful: http://pentagram.svn.sourceforge.net/viewvc/pentagram/pentagram/trunk/docs/
[12:08:47] <wjp> out of curiosity, what are you working on?
[12:09:43] <mrdeity> reversing atleast parts of crusader into java
[12:10:03] <mrdeity> i've been working on this off and on for a few years
[12:10:16] <wjp> cool
[12:10:33] <mrdeity> and i'm finnaly getting a hang of old 16bit asm
[12:10:46] <mrdeity> have you guys done much reversing?
[12:11:27] <wjp> I think we 'know enough' about u8 to finish pentagram
[12:12:32] <wjp> knowledge of the crusaders is more limited, but a lot is the same as in u8
[12:12:38] <wjp> (quite a lot is different too, though)
[12:14:29] <mrdeity> you guys wouldn't have managed to get u8 running in a debugger would you?
[12:15:00] <wjp> there's the dosbox debugger
[12:21:30] <wjp> http://pentagram.sourceforge.net/images/screenshots/noremorse.png
[12:23:42] <wjp> (from the map viewer; it's a completely static image)
[12:25:30] <mrdeity> thanks :) this is my between semester project so i'll be around here alot
[12:25:42] <wjp> cool
[12:26:11] <wjp> do you have a webpage where you collect information you uncover about crusader?
[12:27:38] <mrdeity> not yet right now its all writtin on print outs of assembly but once i get some substance i'll put it all up.
[12:33:51] <wjp> if you have any questions about our sources or docs, or want to discuss things, I'm usually around during the day/evening (european time)
[12:36:24] <mrdeity> cool, i'll take you up on that
[12:37:01] <mrdeity> i'm all the way over in the states but with school out i tend to be a night bird
[12:39:46] <mrdeity> u8 used Phar Lab's dos extender rigth?
[12:40:21] <wjp> yes
