[21:04:48] --> Zxcvb has joined #pentagram
[21:04:51] <Zxcvb> anyone here?
[21:09:59] <Fingolfin> no
[21:10:32] <Zxcvb> any idea why ultima 8 is detected as an os/2 binary?
[21:13:14] <Fingolfin> by pentagram ?!?
[21:13:26] <Zxcvb> no, by wine
[21:13:30] <Zxcvb> both u8.exe and u8w.exe
[21:14:25] <wjp> [wjp@aldur ~]$ file /dos/D/u8/u8.exe
[21:14:31] <wjp> /dos/D/u8/u8.exe: MS-DOS executable (EXE), OS/2 or MS Windows
[21:15:13] <wjp> I would assume OS/2 and Windows use a similar exe file format
[21:15:21] <wjp> both derived from dos, maybe
[21:15:42] <Zxcvb> wine: 'C:\Ultima8\u8.exe' is an OS/2 binary, not supported
[21:15:59] <wjp> well, it isn't a windows binary
[21:16:04] <Zxcvb> os/2 has a dual format binary, so one .exe works in both dos and os/2
[21:16:07] <wjp> wine isn't what you want to use
[21:16:10] <wjp> try dosbox
[21:16:17] <Zxcvb> yet ultima 8 will not work in os/2 period without a patch
[21:16:20] <Fingolfin> yeah, U8 isn't a windows application
[21:16:27] <Fingolfin> it's a pure DOS app
[21:16:58] <Zxcvb> u8w should work in a decent dos shell or vdm though
[21:17:20] <wjp> what exactly is the goal of this exercise, btw?
[21:17:47] <Zxcvb> I heard wine had better dos support now, and was hoping it would work
[21:18:23] <wjp> u8 needs more than 'better' dos support :-)
[21:18:38] <Zxcvb> u8w.exe runs even in xp
[21:18:44] <wjp> so?
