[06:40:51] <Colourless> great work wjp
[06:40:53] <Colourless> now you need to look at crusader :-)
[06:49:02] * Darke cackles!
[06:50:09] <Colourless> you know, i'm really thinking that converting the crusader shapes to the u8 shape fromat might be best for now.
[06:58:43] <Darke> Are they very different?
[06:58:52] <Colourless> no idea
[06:59:07] * Darke was thinking of just converting both to some stock-standard RLE format, rather then the rather weird format the current ones are stored in. *grin*
[06:59:09] <Colourless> doesn't look like it. i don't have crusader so i don't know
[07:00:08] * Colourless coughs a bit and says something on the lines of if you 'really' want to be rewriting all the shape drawing code, fine, but let me tell you, it's not going to be that simple :-)
[07:05:39] * Darke gasps! It isn't all nicely abstracted and such! *grin*
[07:06:28] <Colourless> now, it sort of here.... of course it's not all that nice to look at :-)
[07:06:36] <Colourless> s/of here/of is here/
[07:06:56] * Darke snickers.
[07:07:36] <Colourless> is there any advantage using a stock-standard rle format?
[07:09:15] <Darke> It can be read by stock-standard RLE format readers, and the code in the engine is going to be simpler?
[07:12:36] <Colourless> point 1 agreed, point 2 you'd think so, but it may not be true.
[07:14:23] <Colourless> the reason i say that is things might start to become a little ugly when handling the edges of the shapes
[07:15:08] * Darke nods.
[07:15:22] <Colourless> then there is the final part that the shapes all have multiple frames, and i do not know of any rle format that has multipla frames
