[09:08:19] --> Dominus has joined #pentagram
[09:08:19] --- ChanServ gives channel operator status to Dominus
[09:08:45] <Dominus> hey ho
[09:09:28] <SB-X> hi
[09:09:37] <Dominus> jargon: problems/bugs with 7zip are 7zip concerns. I'm sure they will be happy to hear about bugs
[09:09:53] <Dominus> as long as you use the most current version :)
[09:09:57] <Dominus> hi SB-X
[09:11:47] --> Darke2 has joined #pentagram
[09:33:05] <jargon> Dominus
[09:33:25] <Dominus> jargon
[09:33:33] <jargon> set the topic to 'we all livin in amairlika amairlika amairlika'
[09:33:58] <jargon> plz;>
[09:34:59] <jargon> are you supposed to be able to jump off the pier?
[09:35:46] <jargon> Dominus
[09:36:31] <Dominus> yes, you are supposed to be able to die in all fashions
[09:36:45] <jargon> its really hard to jump off the pier
[09:36:57] <jargon> it took me 2 minutes to jump
[09:37:08] <Dominus> topic will stay, thankfully not everyone in this channel lives in amairlika (?)
[09:37:11] <jargon> because it kept stopping me
[09:37:28] <jargon> its a song by rammstein
[09:37:30] <jargon> amerika
[09:37:40] <jargon> buts thats how they pronounce america
[09:38:07] <jargon> here i show you...
[09:38:34] <Dominus> they do? Always sounded to me like a german accented america
[09:38:40] <jargon> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0RDEQuKxhAg&NR
[09:40:52] <Dominus> can't listen to that here. and I refuse to listen by cchoice to rammstein, except some select songs
[09:45:13] <jargon> holy mgm fireworks
[09:45:37] <jargon> it amerika dammit its thier only song that is any good
[09:46:02] <jargon> :P
[09:46:03] <jargon> Dominus
[09:46:39] <jargon> and its the best video for it
[09:46:39] <Dominus> jargon
[09:46:42] <jargon> ?
[09:47:05] <jargon> Dominus?
[09:47:11] <Dominus> that song is as useless as the others
[09:47:15] <Dominus> jargon
[09:47:21] <jargon> Dominus..
[09:48:25] * jargon hits Dominus square in the face with a ping pong ball
[09:48:28] <Dominus> jargon: why do you always message the name in every other line? either address by Dominus: or (as in this case) just write, no one else seems to "talk" so it's kind of clear whom you are talking to
[09:48:30] <jargon> my point!
[09:49:48] <jargon> brb i need food or somethin. i am high from dsomeone smoking a crystal methamphetamine cigarette near me
[09:56:20] <jargon> Dominus if everyone on earth killed one other person in the same day. who would go to jail?
[09:56:45] <servus> Did you buy Ultima VIII for the box art?
[09:57:00] <jargon> servus: BYE
[09:57:25] <-- jargon was kicked from #pentagram by Dominus (BYE)
[09:57:25] --> jargon has joined #pentagram
[09:57:35] <jargon> isnt servus a bot?
[09:57:50] <servus> Command me, master.
[09:57:55] <Dominus> no, that's why I kicked you, be nice
[09:58:27] <jargon> so i take it servus is a simpleton and not a poindexter?
[09:58:32] <jargon> :p
[09:58:53] * jargon pets servus :)
[09:59:12] <jargon> hi servus
[09:59:17] <jargon> how are you?
[10:00:10] <jargon> :<
[10:00:18] * servus raises an eyebrow.
[10:00:42] * jargon tosses a bag of m&ms at servus
[10:00:59] <jargon> i hear those kind of folk love m&ms
[10:01:03] <jargon> :PPP
[10:01:18] <jargon> ^-^
[10:01:23] <jargon> i love m&ms too
[10:01:35] <Dominus> i can't eat them anymore
[10:01:45] <jargon> my lil bro is autistic
[10:01:50] <jargon> he loves icecream
[10:02:17] --> Kohlrabi has joined #pentagram
[10:02:27] <Dominus> thanks for sharing this wk
[10:02:30] <jargon> dont lie about icecream to him or he will hate you to the end of his days
[10:02:32] <Dominus> with us
[10:02:44] <servus> I feel vaguely offended.
[10:03:01] <jargon> :)
[10:03:05] <jargon> :<
[10:05:24] <jargon> yes i can win you over by throwing bags of m&m's at you. mj does it why cant i?
[10:05:34] <jargon> :P
[10:06:08] <jargon> im in a silly mood
[10:06:17] <jargon> brb i need a smoke
[10:11:37] <jargon> i have to take off my combat boots now
[10:12:42] <jargon> servus what part of pentagram do you work on?
[10:13:22] <jargon> Dominus what part of pentagram do you work on?
[10:13:39] <servus> I invented Lady Mordea in the original Ultima VIII game.
[10:13:48] <jargon> ?
[10:14:16] <jargon> o rry?
[10:14:40] <servus> I'm also the official caterer for the Pentagram team.
[10:14:48] <jargon> ?
[10:15:33] * Dominus points to http://pentagram.sf.net for an answer
[10:15:55] <jargon> yes ive submitted bugs
[10:16:50] <Dominus> but have you READ it?
[10:17:01] <Dominus> "jargon: Dominus what part of pentagram do you work on?"
[10:17:49] <jargon> i dont have a keypad
[10:18:38] <Dominus> do you need that to read?
[10:18:53] <jargon> i was reading in controls
[10:19:09] <jargon> i dont read very well btw
[10:21:54] <servus> Did you work on UWAdv at all, Dominus?
[10:22:45] <Dominus> no, just been a tester, mostly whether the mingw compile worked. and once active discusser
[10:23:04] <Dominus> (when active discussion was happening) :)
[10:23:40] <servus> There's a new uwadv bug just a few days old (Sorry for channel topic shifting)
[10:24:46] <Dominus> the topic is spoon, you can't really avoid shifting the topic :)#
[10:25:06] <Dominus> is uwadv even "playable" nowadays?
[10:25:26] <servus> The topic is "#pentagram - Spoon!" : o)
[10:25:49] <Dominus> uhm, no itÄs Spoon!
[10:25:53] <servus> Kinda. Umm. I haven't actually checked in a while. It looked pretty close to wrapping up, and I don't think there are any more roadblocks to completion, like completely unknown, vital file formats.
[10:26:29] <Dominus> "#pentagram - Spoon!" is from your client
[10:26:45] <Dominus> strange last time I looked it was far from going anywhere
[10:26:58] <jargon> Dominus it doesnt say what part you work on
[10:27:32] <Dominus> ha true!!!!
[10:27:52] <Dominus> at least you really read it now :)
[10:27:55] <jargon> what is UWAdv?
[10:28:10] <Dominus> I'm mostly the doc and FAQ writer
[10:28:36] <jargon> what is UWAdv?
[10:28:48] <Dominus> first hit on google, if you are not using a localized one
[10:29:04] <jargon> google is too creepy
[10:29:17] <Dominus> what do you use then?
[10:29:28] <jargon> i use wikipedia
[10:30:09] <jargon> Dominus i am right in that pentagram is not an emulator?
[10:30:58] <servus> Dominus: I present the following, for your intense enjoyment: http://sammatthews.com/images/Random%20Illustrations/spoon.jpg
[10:31:27] <wjp> servus: nice :-)
[10:31:38] <-- Kohlrabi has left IRC (Nick collision from services.)
[10:31:40] <Dominus> jargon: : haven't you discussed the emulator question some days ago?
[10:31:43] <servus> He awakens! :-O
[10:31:44] --> Kohlriba has joined #pentagram
[10:31:59] <Dominus> servus: very nice
[10:33:54] <servus> Thank you, thank you! But that's actually not a photograph of me.
[10:34:17] <Dominus> he he
[10:34:48] <Dominus> I like that actress too much to think she would be involved in things like Exult and 3D programming
[10:35:24] <servus> Are you saying that Exult3D is not chic and hip?
[10:36:40] <Dominus> last time I looked at it, it looked a bit blocky and it was hip over one year ago (or is two years now?)
[10:37:22] <jargon> what is 3d programming?
[10:38:20] <servus> Two years? Wow. Time flies when you're not in Britannia.
[10:39:09] <Dominus> I'm not sure, when was the last time you did something with the code?
[10:39:53] <servus> Two months ago.
[10:40:07] <Dominus> he he
[10:41:16] <Dominus> I hope the thing you did with the code was NOT deleting it :)
[10:41:32] <servus> http://sammatthews.com/images/Exult3D/Exult3D-38.jpg I have to say that I still prefer this style of mountain for Serpent Isle, where there's no magic carpet annoyance.
[10:42:35] <Dominus> as long as the carpet can fly over them I like that style better too
[10:42:49] <Dominus> did I say "ooooooooooooooooooooooooooo nice" yet?
[10:42:59] <Dominus> ooooooooooooooooooooooooooo nice
[10:43:02] <servus> You said that two years ago, you don't have to do again *grin*
[10:43:25] <servus> And there's no way I could change stuff like how high the magic carpet flies, it would completely demolish everything
[10:44:17] <Dominus> oh well, then let it fly through that shape :)
[10:45:00] <Dominus> there are just some tweaks/hacks that would be nice for Exult3D
[10:45:49] <servus> I need to: Disable/Fix OpenGL mode of the opening menus, re-do camera panning, and it's done.
[10:46:02] <jargon> what is the foam #1 fingers cheatcode for pentagram?
[10:46:05] <servus> Everything else broken in the old binaries is fixed
[10:46:22] <Dominus> like high mountain ranges AND a working carpet. and stretching building walls and doors just a bit to make me fell not so crowded in :)
[10:46:37] <servus> Stretching, how do you mean? Vertically?
[10:46:48] <servus> I could just stretch *everything* vertically, if you wanted : o)
[10:46:57] <Dominus> no!!!!
[10:47:05] <servus> http://sammatthews.com/images/Exult3D/Exult3D-SI-01.jpg I don't think that's crowded though. Looks just right
[10:48:06] <Dominus> I saw another screenshot where the camera was way lower and there the ceailing was just feeling way too low
[10:48:10] <servus> In that photo, the following bugs visible have been fixed: Statbars work, shutters are 3D objects, chairs are 3D objects, party members are 3D objects (well, most of them...)
[10:48:33] <servus> Exult3D will never support first person mode. Do you know how slow rendering a superchunk at once is? : o)
[10:48:54] <servus> http://sammatthews.com/images/Exult3D/Exult3D-SI-09.jpg ?
[10:49:16] <Dominus> yeah, that looks like it
[10:49:31] <jargon> use fog
[10:49:37] <jargon> like in that one game
[10:49:40] <jargon> whats it called
[10:49:59] <jargon> return to krondor
[10:50:06] <servus> http://sammatthews.com/images/Exult3D/Exult3D-SI-08.jpg is probably what you were thinking of
[10:51:07] <servus> Betrayal at Krondor's engine has very little to do with Ultima VII's. Chunks in Ultima VII are very heavily cluttered with individual 3D objects, and the current rendering code is not optimized at all for fast batch rendering. It would be a lot of work.
[10:52:09] <Dominus> yeah, the 8th one looks even worse and brings my not existing phobia up :)
[10:53:28] <jargon> ive done something in 3d that is as dense as u8 before
[10:54:12] <jargon> fp too
[10:54:42] <jargon> it was in the RoE series
[10:55:33] <jargon> RoE started as a text adventure
[10:55:40] <jargon> went to turn based tile rpg
[10:55:46] <jargon> to rogue
[10:55:58] <jargon> to 3d
[10:56:12] <jargon> to bascially fuckhappy funtime 3d do whatever
[10:59:07] <jargon> nm
[10:59:28] <jargon> i need to sleep this off
[10:59:38] <Dominus> yes
[11:00:15] <servus> Sometimes Dominus and I have a Coca-Cola, and we get a little crazy too.
[11:01:29] * Dominus looks at his empty water glass and wishes it would fill with coke
[11:03:28] <jargon> COCAINE
[11:04:05] <Dominus> nope, not that and a full glass of that would definitely be too much
[11:04:28] <jargon> :P
[11:09:34] <jargon> that reminds me of the time in gradeschool where i blantently passednotes by writing them on a massiv4e dry erase billboard and holding it high iover my head
[11:10:06] <jargon> my best friend had another billboard
[11:12:35] <Dominus> sounds like you had fun
