[17:45:52] <wjp> hi watt
[18:17:43] <watt> hiya

[18:37:00] --> Dominus has joined #pentagram
[18:37:02] --- ChanServ gives channel operator status to Dominus
[18:37:28] <Dominus> hi
[18:37:33] <wjp> hi
[18:37:39] * Dominus will try to make some screenshots of Crusader for PSX
[18:39:59] <Sectus> does the PSX version of Crusader have any big differences from the PC version?
[18:40:44] <Dominus> I haven't tried yet. of course the keyboard commands are different :-)
[18:43:19] <Sectus> where did you get the game? I've looked around for it but it seems to be pretty rare
[18:43:24] <Dominus> I'll also scan in the controller setup from the manual as a reference
[18:43:39] <Dominus> I got it from ebay half a year or so ago
[18:44:06] <Sectus> hmm
[18:46:55] <Dominus> I hope it works with the emulator
[18:47:30] <Sectus> it should
[18:47:40] <Sectus> there's few PSX games which aren't emulated
[18:48:02] <Sectus> what did you get with the game? does the PSX version have any of the extras the PC version has?
[18:48:17] <Dominus> extras?
[18:48:53] <Sectus> well, like the newspaper, and the two manuals
[18:49:20] <Dominus> I only got the PSX-format jewel case and the manual with it
[18:49:37] <Sectus> hmm
[18:50:00] <Dominus> extras are not standard with PSX-Games as they are expected to be stacked in the stores with just their jewel case
[18:50:27] <Sectus> silly PSX games
[18:51:09] <Sectus> I miss getting more than a little dvd case and a cd when buying games
[18:51:19] <Sectus> the cloth maps with some of the Ultima games was pretty neat
[18:53:14] <Dominus> yup
[18:53:49] <eldron> instead we get it all in a nifty pdf ;)
[18:54:19] <eldron> loved the days when the game package actually had some weight.
[18:55:18] <Dominus> ok, video works, but is a bit "staggering" but that is probably because it runs from CD and not iso
[18:55:55] <Sectus> screenshots!
[19:07:59] <Dominus> http://members.chello.at/dominus/noremorsepsx.zip
[19:09:21] <Sectus> ._o
[19:09:44] <Sectus> that... resolution... *screams*
[19:09:55] <Sectus> I had totally forgot that the PSX uses a 320xsomething resolution
[19:17:17] <Dominus> is the hidden designer headquarter level in the pc-version as well?
[19:24:54] <Dominus> he he. I guess not. it's by the PSX conversion team "Realtime"
[19:41:47] <Dominus> http://members.chello.at/dominus/psxlevel.zip for screenshots of the hidden designer level
[19:43:29] <Sectus> hidden designer headquarter level? ._o
[19:48:18] <Sectus> hmm, one of the quotes is from a person who designed a specific number of levels... does the PSX have unique levels, or did this person work on the original PC levels?
[19:48:47] <Dominus> It seems like the PSX had unique levels
[19:49:18] <Sectus> hmm
[19:49:28] <Dominus> though it only seems so according to this quote
[19:50:47] <Sectus> http://www.gamefaqs.com/console/psx/code/19996.html - you could check, one of the levels he said he made was 11, you could just quickly start the level and see if you recognize it
[19:52:16] <Dominus> problem is I never played the original for more than a couple of minutes :-(
[19:52:33] <Dominus> that'S how I found the designer level (codes)
[19:53:00] <Sectus> oh :|
[20:02:53] <Dominus> http://members.chello.at/dominus/psxhiddenpics.zip
[20:03:30] <Dominus> includes photo of the origin Q&A team :-)
[20:25:35] <Sectus> that first photo looks like it has a woman with a moustache :|
[20:26:40] <Dominus> true
[20:27:03] <Dominus> the black&white photo from the 2nd zip also belongs to the hiddenpics btw
[20:39:09] <Sectus> thanks for the screenshots... the only question which remains now, is whether or not if the Sega Saturn port is identical to the PSX one
[20:39:42] <Dominus> yup
[20:56:54] <watt> woah, that's really cool stuff... I need to find copies of crusader sometime.
[20:57:25] <Dominus> ebay is the place to be :-)
[20:58:12] <Dominus> if you are interested, I also did some screenshots of Ultima Underworld for PSX. only need to find the url :-)
[21:01:46] <watt> what might be interesting is if we attempt to use the data from psx version of crusader.. or even target the psx platform in a pentagram port... Ok, don't hit me too hard.
[21:01:48] <Dominus> it's somewhere on uwadv's page...
[21:02:36] * Dominus hits watt not too hard
[21:02:37] <Sectus> Dominus, there's a UW for PSX? O_O
[21:02:49] <Dominus> yup in my collection :-)
[21:02:55] * Sectus faints
[21:03:14] <Dominus> but it is in Japanese :-)
[21:03:28] <Sectus> eek
[21:03:55] <Sectus> there's no European or American release of PSX UW?
[21:04:34] <Dominus> nope
[21:07:43] <Sectus> that's so... weird
[21:08:11] <Dominus> damn, I can't find the screenshots anymore...
[21:08:29] <Sectus> I can't imagine someone going "Hey, I got an idea! Let's make a Japanese Ultima Underworld for the Playstation! It'd be great!"
[21:10:51] <watt> you're not trying hard enough.
[21:11:52] <watt> It helps to picture a giant mushroom behind the guy
[21:12:22] <watt> hehehehe... crazy mushrooms :-)
[21:14:10] <Dominus> wjp: if you are there, can you look at the uwadv wepspace if there is anywhere a zip with UW-PSX screenshots?
[21:15:14] <wjp> don't see it
[21:16:07] <Dominus> hm. strange. I'm sure he (vivdos) wrote me and told me where the screenshots are stored now
[21:16:51] <wjp> the only uw-psx screenshots I saw are the ones you showed me
[21:17:42] <Dominus> and exactly these, vividos zipped up and stored on the uwadv websapce (if I don't hallucinate)
[21:18:28] <wjp> oh, here they are
[21:19:43] <Dominus> where?
[21:22:43] <wjp> look closely :-)
[21:22:49] <wjp> anyway, time to go; g'night :-)
