[15:14:58] <wjp> good night :-)
[16:14:23] --> aimaz has joined #pentagram
[16:15:42] <aimaz> hi, I'm running pentagram in linux, and I get this error:
[16:15:42] <aimaz> Initialize World
[16:15:42] <aimaz> pentagram: games/Game.cpp:50: static Game* Game::createGame(GameInfo*): Assertion `"createGame: invalid game" && false' failed.
[16:31:51] <-- trin has left IRC ("You are heading for some face time with Mrs. Brick !")
[16:53:04] <wjp> that typically means that pentagram couldn't find a copy of U8
[16:57:48] <aimaz> I don't know what U8 is, is it a game or an engine?
[16:58:01] <aimaz> http://aiera.timeimmortal.net/ultima8.php I'm assuming I can get it from here
[16:58:20] <wjp> um, U8 = Ultima 8
[16:59:06] <aimaz> where can I get it to install on linux?
[16:59:27] <wjp> you don't own a copy of U8?
[17:00:13] <aimaz> no, I hadn't heard of it before trying to play this
[17:00:27] <wjp> I see :-)
[17:00:48] <sbx> you have to buy it
[17:01:05] <sbx> search at eBay, for example
[17:01:21] <wjp> note that pentagram isn't quite 100% playable yet at this point
[17:01:25] <aimaz> k
[17:01:58] <aimaz> yeah, I read that
[17:02:27] <aimaz> is ultima 8 easy to get working in linux?
[17:02:53] <wjp> well, it's a DOS game
[17:03:18] <wjp> your options are (as far as I know) trying it in dosbox (http://dosbox.sf.net/ ), or using pentagram
[17:03:38] <wjp> both options aren't ideal at this point, though. (dosbox may not be fast enough unless you have a fast PC, and pentagram isn't finished yet)
[17:04:05] <aimaz> i have amd 64 3000
[17:04:11] <aimaz> i guess that should be ok
[17:04:33] <wjp> I have no experience with dosbox speed on 64 bit architectures
[17:06:58] <wjp> time for dinner; be back later
[17:32:32] <wjp> back
[17:34:42] <sbx> pentagram needs UserFriendlyError messages
[17:34:49] <sbx> like "Sorry, Pentagram encountered an error and must be closed. Press OK to restart your computer."
[17:35:07] <wjp> it needs a game selection/game configuration interface :-)
[19:02:14] --- Chet1c is now known as Chetic
[19:46:03] <oaQ^> 64-bit architechture has amazing speed compared to 32-bit
[19:46:23] <oaQ^> though I haven't got dosbox working very well either
[19:56:49] <oaQ^> or at least not with U8
[21:07:36] --> Fingolfin has joined #pentagram

[21:48:54] <-- Fingolfin has left IRC ("42")
[22:26:39] <wjp> committed savegame gump...
[22:27:01] <wjp> a partially functioning one, even :-)
[22:29:02] <wjp> only 6 (or 5) entries for now, since PagedGump needs some work first
[22:31:17] <wjp> savegames are named pent%02d.sav currently
[22:31:45] <wjp> global zip comment is used to store the description,
[22:33:49] <wjp> time to go now; night
[23:36:06] <sbx> bye
[23:36:16] <sbx> oops he left an hour ago :p
