[01:35:49] <watt> hi
[01:45:36] <watt> oh crap, think I need a tool to massively convert filenames to lowercase.
[01:46:59] <Darke> zip them all up, then unzip them using 'unzip -LL' is the simplest solution. *grin*
[01:49:03] <watt> hehe... I like it
[01:50:17] <Darke> Unless you've got multi-gig of files, it's a fine solution, I use it regularly for various old game installs.
[01:51:11] <watt> It's the U7 bg and si data actually.. I decided to reinstall the data using dosbox - it made the files uppercase
[01:53:15] <watt> hehe... that worked well, thanks.
[01:55:27] <watt> oh... but the true problem appears to be permissions...
[01:55:50] <watt> but they look right.. arg!
[01:57:08] <watt> oh duh.. no x on the parent directory for my group
[01:57:51] <watt> victory
[01:58:03] <Darke> Yay!
[02:02:07] <watt> umm.. but the sound is on crack.. Guardian sounded like a Alvin and the Chipmunks
[02:06:52] * watt blames alsa drivers, need kernel upgrade.
[02:10:36] <Darke> I'd poke dosbox first, IIRC, it's a known problem for a few games.
[02:16:21] <watt> eh, I only used dosbox for the install.. naturally, I want to use exult to play :-)
[02:16:44] <watt> I've have sound issues with other things lately too
[02:16:49] <Darke> Ah.
[02:17:33] * Darke can't remember the last time he actually *installed* an ultima. Mostly it's just been cut&paste. *grin* Dos games are wonderful like that.
[02:19:19] <watt> Yeah, but I wasn't sure that all the data was in my old install, so I updated to make sure... besides, my version didn't come with the maps and books.. they were on the cd in pdf
[02:19:35] <watt> and dos + pdf = nightmare
[02:19:55] <watt> Thus, I never got far in either game
[02:20:13] <Darke> Heh.
[02:20:29] <watt> so I installed the pdf's too this time.
[02:22:21] <watt> Hell, just the copy protection at the begining to blackgate was a serious pain... trying to use this black and white pdf to solve map questions.
[02:23:09] <watt> s/to/of/
[02:23:13] <Darke> Yup.
[02:27:34] <sbx> they posted the answers online
[02:28:47] <watt> which is the only reason I managed to get past that.
[02:29:51] <sbx> :)

[14:08:08] <Colourless> hi
[14:09:18] <Fl00der> tell me, is there chickens in ultima 8 :P (this is serious question, im not joking)
[14:11:15] <Fl00der> ok nvm that :P
[14:11:15] <Colourless> no
[14:11:17] <Fl00der> ok
[14:11:31] <Fl00der> I just have seen so many chickens in so many RPG's :)
[14:11:55] <Fl00der> like, gothic series, some ultima games, divine divinity, etc.
[14:12:50] <Colourless> there is 2 types of domesticated animals on Pagan. There are Kiths which are like giant spiders, and Toraxes which are kind of like giant lizzard things
