[11:07:20] <Colourless> you know, i never knew tarna was female till you pointed it out the other day (despite the fact she says so herself). Of course I now wonder, why have a guardsworman, when they all look male anyway
[11:08:45] <wjp> :-)
[11:09:17] <DarkeZzz> "Because they can."?
[11:09:39] <Colourless> it is possible though, they were intending to have 2 seperate guard shapes, one male, one female like in monitor
[11:09:52] <Colourless> of course size restrictions would have caused it to be cut
[11:10:03] <DarkeZzz> No doubt there was a more female looking guard shape made up, but it got cut when they were trying to squease it onto floppies.
[11:10:18] * DarkeZzz removes Colourless from his head.
[11:10:40] <Colourless> so, what would have the game looked like if they didn't have to bother with the floppy version
[11:11:12] <DarkeZzz> Hmm... from memory, they'd have sittable chairs.
[11:12:17] <wjp> Tarna's shape does look different
[11:12:31] <DarkeZzz> (Was a comment to that effect in one of the interviews, from memory.)
[11:12:55] <wjp> (tarna = 405, male guard = 574)
[11:13:07] <Colourless> it is?
[11:14:04] <wjp> middle mouse dumps item info, btw
[11:14:24] <Colourless> yeah the shape is different
[11:14:34] <Colourless> tarna has a smaller build
[11:14:37] <wjp> yes
[11:28:28] <Colourless> using animdisp, tarna's shape is a lot different to a normal guards. her walking animation is much smaller
[11:28:48] <Colourless> that should be steps in her walking animation
[11:31:30] <Colourless> tarna has no death animation :-)
[11:32:22] <wjp> lucky girl :-)
[11:32:33] <Colourless> and her look usecode doesn't have any conditions for death
[11:32:55] <Colourless> enterFastArea does though
[11:33:31] <Colourless> not that her enterFastArea does much

[18:32:49] <wjp> are you reading the SDL ML?
[18:33:01] <Colourless> no
[18:33:05] <Colourless> why?
[18:33:18] <wjp> replies to your mail
[18:33:27] <Colourless> i'll check it out
[18:33:37] <wjp> "Yes, this is probably a good idea. Can you send me a
[18:33:38] <wjp> patch, after you've tested it? I don't have any international keyboards
[18:33:38] <wjp> here to work with."
[18:33:42] <wjp> (from Sam Lantinga)
[18:34:11] <wjp> that was technically in a reply to my reply to his reply to your mail, but ok :-)
[19:38:19] <wjp> anyway, it seems you/me/we have to produce a patch and get it tested :-)
[19:38:39] <Colourless> yes
[19:39:12] <wjp> I volunteer Dominus for testing :-)
[19:39:25] <Colourless> so do i :-)
[19:40:52] <wjp> great, that's settled then :-)
[19:42:40] <wjp> the main issue is probably how to get DIB stuff into the DX5 stuff
[19:45:00] <Colourless> yeah
[19:45:10] <wjp> configure.in makes sure that windib is compiled if windx5 is compiled, it seems
[19:45:26] <Colourless> yes it would
[19:46:18] <Colourless> but i don't think i'm going to do it using the windib stuff
[19:47:46] <Colourless> probably make a function such as SetKeyMap(int scancode, int sdlkey);
[19:48:06] <Colourless> which would have a huge virtual key switch statement in it
[19:49:54] <Colourless> eh, scrap that, doesn't need sdlkey as an arg
[19:50:06] <Colourless> the function will determine the requred sdlkey for the input
[19:57:15] <Colourless> ok, this should be it
[20:04:09] <Colourless> hmm, ok. this doesn't quite work properly :-)
[20:04:24] <Colourless> some keys no longer work :-)
[20:05:14] <Colourless> i'm guessing only 'input' keys
[20:07:48] <wjp> input keys?
[20:08:21] <Colourless> numbers, letters
[20:12:37] <Colourless> ok, this seems ok
[20:22:17] --> Dominus has joined #pentagram
[20:22:43] <Colourless> ah ha
[20:22:43] <wjp> ah, your tester; excellent timing ;-)
[20:22:46] <Colourless> he's here
[20:22:49] <Dominus> hi
[20:22:55] <Dominus> huh?
