[01:45:22] <ShadwChsr> Pentagram appears to be "hibernating" right now and I'd like to do some work on it.
[01:45:59] <ShadwChsr> Specifically, there are a few "TODO" items flagged for cleanup relating to inter-dependencies
[01:48:17] <ShadwChsr> There's also a lot of tool code in the core binary which doesn't make sense, and usecode spattered over everything, as opposed to having more of an interface layer to the game engine.
[01:48:26] <ShadwChsr> (makes it harder to, say, do something like ExultStudio in the future with a more advanced usecode system or something along those lines)
[01:49:42] <ShadwChsr> Also alot of "TODO"-ish ifdefs relating to pentagram vs remorse that could probably be better served via polymorphism

[12:40:59] <wjp> ShadwChsr: if you read the IRC logs: it would probably be better to discuss this over the mailing list, since we don't seem to be around at the same time
[12:42:20] <wjp> separating usecode from the object classes (I assume you mean intrinsics) and Crusader vs. Ultima are at this point somewhat premature, though
[12:43:05] <wjp> it's very hard to design either cleanly without knowing the exact ways in which the code will be used
[12:43:18] <wjp> so I'd personally prefer to postpone both until there's a need for it
[12:47:24] <wjp> I don't think there are any Crusader-related #ifdef's around, though. There are some regular if's in some places to experiment with Crusader maps/data files, but until we have a good idea what exactly is different in Crusader, I don't think we can determine what the common interface should be
[12:51:20] <wjp> I'm also not sure which tool code in the core binary you refer to
[12:58:44] <wjp> any cleanup patches would of course be very welcome, but be sure to discuss any redesign first
