[00:14:09] <Dominus1> committed now anyway. added both --enable-hq4x and --enable-all-hq-scalers options to configure.
[00:15:08] <Dominus1> I did not add the scaler to the mingw makefile before letting kirben in on it. I have a fast machine and just compiling hq4x it takes 3.5 minutes :)
[00:15:25] <Dominus1> Now Pentagram beats Exult in compile time finally :)
[00:16:45] <Dominus1> colourless I also did not put stuff that is the same for all hq scalers in a hqnxscaler.h file as you did for Exult. I just don't think I could have done that properly
[00:17:38] <Dominus1> in the tradition of breaking svn and vanishing, I'm going to bed now :)

[02:48:45] <Colourless> hmm... looks like i never finished writing scalergump
[02:48:55] <Colourless> missing some vital functionality

[07:26:13] <Dominus1> he he, alltogether my universal pentagram build takes 25 minutes. 64bit 8min, 32bit 10 and ppc 7min
[07:26:18] <Dominus1> just some statistics
[07:27:10] <Dominus1> used to be 3min, 4min, 3min... :)

[08:44:13] <Colourless> the hq4x scaler takes about an hour for me to compile in visual studio
[08:44:57] <Colourless> (with optimizations on)
[08:45:30] <Dominus> ouch
[08:45:46] <Dominus> that is not fun
[08:46:51] <Dominus> will need to put a warning on the hq4x scaler configure setting
[08:48:37] <Dominus> good I didn't enable it for mingw. Kirben would have been thankfull for that extra compile time :)
[08:53:14] <Colourless> personally, I don't think the hq scalers look very good with pentagram.
[08:53:41] <Colourless> so I usually don't even have them being compiled in here
[08:56:52] <Dominus> I semi like them best. Pentagram or actually u8 is not very good to scale because of its really really big black lines around the shapes
[08:57:31] <Dominus> I like how the vegatation looks with the hq scalers, wooden stairs or npcs don't look that good
[08:58:02] <Dominus> I'll eventually adapt the hq4x scaler for exult, should be really straight forward
[09:12:33] <Kirben> I enabled all scales in the last Windows snapshot, and I didn't notice compile time increase. I have not commited Makefile.mingw changes though.
