[15:35:35] <wjp> this is a rather annoying... crusader apparently has 16 directions for some animations and 8 for others
[15:35:50] <wjp> (not that I'm looking at crusader data files or anything *cough* :-) )

[16:01:41] * watt waves.
[16:01:57] <watt> Notice actual commit... neat; -)
[16:03:00] <watt> Plus a reminder to fix key binds when in console.. I forgot again
[16:04:36] <watt> how about the use of control modifier to make the console ignore a character? - '~' to enter console '<Control> ~' to leave?
[16:05:41] <wjp> hi
[16:05:59] <wjp> you should see the things I'm doing in my working copy; downright scary ;-)
[16:06:33] <wjp> you mean you'd have to press ctrl-~ to leave the consoe?
[16:06:37] <wjp> s/soe/sole/
[16:15:00] <watt> yup.... ctrl-anything to ignore text gumps actually.
[16:16:05] <SB-X> hi watt
[16:16:32] <Fingolfin> wjp: how about setting the CIA hookscript for pentagram, too?
[16:18:28] <wjp> I have no real preference either, way, so I guess I'll enable it :-)
[16:18:39] <wjp> um, scratch that first comma
[16:19:20] <wjp> hook added
[16:20:12] <Fingolfin> nice
[16:37:26] <watt> well, I've got a lan party to attend.. I'll try to look into this tomorrow.
[16:37:28] <watt> bye
[16:37:41] <wjp> have fun
[16:37:52] <watt> thx

[17:07:45] --> Dominus has joined #pentagram
[17:07:45] --- ChanServ gives channel operator status to Dominus
[17:07:56] <Dominus> hey ho
[17:17:17] <-- Fingolfin has left IRC ()
[17:21:57] <Dominus> maybe a future pentagram forum needs to be a whole lot different to the exult one :)
[17:22:18] <Dominus> I can understand harsh actions against spammers :)
[17:24:40] <wjp> I keep hoping they'll disappear... :-)
[17:24:54] <SB-X> they havnt?
[17:29:57] <wjp> hard to say
[17:39:35] <Dominus> they have been very persistent the last few months, though the mass spamming only happened int he last (two?) months or so
[17:40:47] * wjp whistles innocently: http://www.math.leidenuniv.nl/~wpalenst/pent.png
[17:41:28] <wjp> it obviously doesn't do anything yet, and crashes immediately, but it's a start
[17:42:35] * Dominus gets excited
[17:42:40] <SB-X> YAY!!!^WCrusader? What's that?
[17:42:53] <SB-X> Surely you don't plan to support that.
[17:43:02] <Dominus> the latest comitt message hinted at that somewhat :)
[17:43:58] <SB-X> I always liked how the alarm lights would float in mid-air like that.
[17:46:31] <wjp> I did have to break U8 for this, unfortunately :/
[17:46:58] <SB-X> that's fine
[17:47:04] <wjp> we have the map chunk size as a constant currently, while it's different in crusader than in u8
[17:48:03] <wjp> time for dinner
[18:37:51] <Dominus> it's okay to break u8, we've had enough time to play it, now it's crusader time :)
[19:31:13] <-- wjp has left IRC ("leaving")
[19:31:41] --> wjp has joined #pentagram
[19:31:42] --- ChanServ gives channel operator status to wjp
[19:43:37] <wjp> ok, U8 should be un-broken again
[19:43:50] <SB-X> :(
[19:44:35] <wjp> you want it to remain broken so crusader gets more attention? :-0
[19:44:41] <wjp> s/0/)/
[19:44:59] <SB-X> yes
[19:45:38] <wjp> now let's see if I can get the usecode interpreter to like crusader...
[19:46:15] <SB-X> :)
[19:46:38] <wjp> and then figure out why parts of the map are missing... *sigh*
[19:50:38] <-- Corvus has left IRC ("Quit")
[20:39:55] <wjp> woohoo, it doesn't crash on startup anymore :-)
[20:40:02] <wjp> (now it crashes as soon as you try to move ;-) )
[20:40:36] <Dominus> muhaha
[20:51:57] <-- Kohlriba has left IRC (Read error: 104 (Connection reset by peer))

[21:05:50] <Dominus> wjp: the other day the bug of the spanish u8 was mentioned. We *knew* of that before, see http://pentagram.sourceforge.net/faq.php#u8_versions :)
[21:06:25] <wjp> well, yes, but still no details, as far as I know
[21:07:18] <Dominus> true enough :)
[21:07:43] <wjp> I think the last time I tried Devon would talk about it if I set the right flags
[21:07:45] <Dominus> just when I read the log, I thought that it sounded familiar
[21:07:58] <wjp> so that means that most likely somewhere some flags aren't being set
[21:08:58] <Dominus> I thought the problem was more like the poison problem in french (or some other language) BG when the same word was taken for a usecode trigger
[21:09:26] <Dominus> the assassination plot
[21:09:33] <wjp> yes, that's what I was looking for at the time as well
[21:10:04] <Dominus> ah, that's what I'm probably remembering then :)
[21:10:48] <wjp> I guess I'd have to go search for the places the relevant flags are set in the english version, and cross-reference that with the spanish one
[21:12:19] <Dominus> but don't let me distract you from working on crusader support :)
[21:14:02] --> Corvus has joined #pentagram
[21:23:37] <SB-X> do in-game videos work yet?
[21:24:55] <SB-X> the briefing computer
[21:27:05] <Dominus> I highly doubt it :)
[21:30:08] <wjp> use mplayer ;-)
[21:32:29] <wjp> ...which apparently only works with some avi in catalog/, and not with the avis in flics/ :-(
[21:33:57] <SB-X> oh
[21:41:01] <wjp> the flics avis are apparently encoded with something called 'xxan'
[21:41:20] <wjp> http://wiki.multimedia.cx/index.php?title=Xxan
[21:56:40] <SB-X> it says mplayer should play them
[21:56:58] <SB-X> well, I mean it has a link to the mplayer site
[21:58:04] <Dominus> he, that is not exactly the same :)
