[16:34:45] <Dominus> hi
[16:34:49] <Dominus> someone seems to have some time again to work on pentagram :-)
[16:36:57] <wjp> really? who?
[16:37:01] <wjp> :-)
[16:37:42] <Dominus> more comits in one day than in the whole last two (three?) months :-)
[16:39:19] <wjp> I've just encountered the problem of hardcoded text in u8.exe
[16:39:49] <wjp> str/int/dex/armr/hits/mana/wght is hardcoded
[16:40:13] <wjp> and not quite the same in other languages, of course
[16:40:45] <wjp> so to avoid getting in the same state exult currently is in, I just don't display those words currently ;-)
[16:42:43] <Dominus> maybe start with a localization file now
[16:42:52] <wjp> that's the plan :-)
[16:43:14] <wjp> another thing is that I seem to remember armour class values are different in pre-patch and post-patch U8
[16:43:19] * wjp sighs
[16:43:26] <wjp> (and those are hardcoded in u8.exe as well)
[16:43:42] * Dominus doesn't even remember armour classes
[16:44:26] <wjp> u8patch.txt, entry 6a
[16:45:13] * Dominus is too lazy to look it up now
[16:45:25] * Dominus spent the whole day "gardening"
[16:46:03] <wjp> why the quotes? :-)
[16:47:37] <Dominus> because it involved setting up the spring/summer "quarter" for the damn rabbits
[16:47:57] <Dominus> so I spent most of the day in the garden but with few gardening
[16:49:46] <Dominus> if I didn't have a kid running around I would grow a mind-expanding substance...
[16:51:32] <wjp> heh :-)
[16:52:11] <Dominus> but it would be hard to explain that to her and even harder if one of her kid friends shows up with her dad
[16:52:34] <Dominus> dad=a cop in the anti-drug-task-force of vienna
[16:55:11] --> Fingolfin has joined #pentagram
[16:55:12] --- ChanServ gives channel operator status to Fingolfin
[16:57:42] * wjp is slowly running out of excuses for not implementing combat :-)
[17:02:08] * Dominus has to quote a line from the Starsky&Hutch movie: "Do it! DO IT!"
[17:07:53] --> MrBasket has joined #pentagram
[17:07:57] <-- MrBasket has left #pentagram ()
[17:08:26] <Fingolfin> Dominus: well, it's all about choice. we should let wjp choose by himself...
[17:08:45] <Dominus> of course
[17:08:47] <Fingolfin> e.g. let him choose between implementing combat, and something very very nasty we could do to him
[17:09:03] <Dominus> lol
[17:09:05] <wjp> ummm... I'm already implementing combat! Really!
[17:09:42] <Dominus> too late, we now have to do something nasty first then let you talk yourself out of the mess :-)
[17:10:26] <wjp> you do realize that will only delay combat, right?
[17:11:13] <Dominus> hmm
[17:11:19] <Dominus> damn
[17:11:36] <Dominus> now we have to wait longer until wjp recovers from the nasty
[17:31:06] * wjp sighs; just figuring out what exactly needs to be done when someone gets hit is already tiring :-)
[17:31:18] <wjp> anyway, dinner; bbl
[17:38:49] <Dominus> that's easy: when the avatar gets hit, subtract a hit-point from the hitter. When the avatar hits someone subtract 50 or all hitpoints from the target... :-)
