[23:17:43] <zephtar> hello
[23:21:11] <zephtar> anyone here, or are all you guys just bots
[23:22:01] <SB-X> Welcome to #pentagram
[23:22:24] <SB-X> Topic is: http://pentagram.sf.net/ - We are missing an anvil. If you find one please let us know
[23:22:57] <zephtar> I guess you guys are all bots :(
[23:23:18] <SB-X> im jk
[23:23:24] <zephtar> ok
[23:23:24] <SB-X> only exultbot is a bot
[23:23:40] <zephtar> just a bunch of people not doing anything?
[23:24:28] <zephtar> I have a problem
[23:25:00] <SB-X> I havn't use pentagram myself, for a long while now
[23:25:16] <zephtar> several years agao (when it could still be done) I bought Ultima 8 in a store. Well now my CD is gone and broken
[23:25:40] <zephtar> I have found a french version of the game, but I need eusecode.flx
[23:25:58] <Dark-Star> why not take that as a reason to learn french? ;-)
[23:26:29] <zephtar> I took french a year or so ago, but my french is not far enough along to understand
[23:27:52] <Dark-Star> well... if you were able to find it for d/l in french, you'll surely be able to find an english version, too.
[23:28:12] <Dark-Star> Serach google. Follow the links from one page to others. We can't help you, sorry...
[23:30:06] <zephtar> I thought about using the disasm program with pentagram to generate the source, and then write a little program to use something like translate.google.com, to grab out the strings and translate them
[23:32:00] --> Kirben has joined #pentagram

[23:35:57] <zephtar> I guess you guys get a lot of ppl saying things like "I broke my cd" so you don't believe me
[23:36:11] <Dark-Star> oh, that wouldn't be very enjoyable I guess... Translating french to english is not always 1:1, especially if you ignore the context (and the 'special' language used in U8)
[23:37:43] <zephtar> yeah, I think might turn out strange
[23:39:11] <Dark-Star> try to locate a french webpage and translate it via babelfish or something... You won't understand a lot I think (I assume that french<->english will turn out at least as strange as german<->english...)
[23:40:04] <zephtar> I've done it some, and using google's translate thing a normal webpage isn't too bad
[23:42:53] <Dark-Star> anyway, I think the tools to "unpack" the usecode are not written yet for U8... or maybe they are, but the "repack" tools aren't.
[23:43:46] <zephtar> there is an unpacker with pentagram
[23:46:12] <Dark-Star> there's the disassembler, yes. But I'm not 100% sure if it preserves all "information" in the usecode file, maybe something could get lost if you disasm and asm it again.
[23:46:28] <Dark-Star> And, of course, the re-assembler is not written yet ;-)
[23:48:17] <Dark-Star> there's a foundation of a compiler, but it is for different input (not 'assembler' but rather 'c-like code') so it won't help there...
[23:49:30] <Dark-Star> and it's far from complete (at least in my cvs copy). And since there's been very few progress lately I think it'll just take some time until pentagram progresses further
