[09:50:46] <Yjarth> i downloaded the windows binary, installed the program, copied the data from the readme.txt into the pentagram.ini thus replacing the old text there
[09:51:36] <Yjarth> then i executed pentagram.exe... but expect of the start screen i can see nothing of the game
[09:51:40] <Yjarth> nothing happens

[18:41:05] --> Yjarth has joined #pentagram
[18:41:43] <Yjarth> hello
[19:07:08] <wjp> hi
[19:07:19] <wjp> what does your pentagram.ini look like exactly?
[19:07:36] <wjp> and do your stdout.txt and stderr.txt indicate that pentagram found pentagram.ini correctly?
[19:07:57] <wjp> also, do stdout.txt/stderr.txt mention the pentagram found some installed games?
[19:08:48] <wjp> s/the/that/
[19:10:21] <wjp> I'm here only occasionally tonight, but I'll read the channel logs
[19:12:03] <Yjarth> hi
[19:12:42] <Yjarth> i copied the supposed "advanced" content of the readme.txt into the pentagram.ini
[19:13:27] <Yjarth> (sorry for any misspelling - i'm no native english speaker ^^)
[19:14:09] <Yjarth> stderr.txt says:
[19:14:09] <Yjarth> ----------------------------------------
[19:14:09] <Yjarth> No games set up in configuration.
[19:14:09] <Yjarth> Please read the README for instructions.
[19:14:09] <Yjarth> ----------------------------------------
[19:14:23] <Yjarth> [nothing more]

[19:15:06] --> Yjarth has joined #pentagram
[19:15:15] <Yjarth> damn ^^
[19:15:36] <wjp> did you try with the 'quick guide' example?
[19:15:49] <Yjarth> yes
[19:16:06] <wjp> if you want to copy/paste large sections, use something like this: http://pastebin.com/
[19:16:36] <wjp> with the quick guide, did you properly setup the path to u8?
[19:16:41] <Yjarth> [u8]
[19:16:42] <Yjarth> # replace 'path to U8 directory' with the directory containing 'u8.exe'
[19:16:42] <Yjarth> path=c:\uc\ultima8
[19:17:01] <Yjarth> thts what my ini says now after following quick guide and setting the path
[19:17:08] <wjp> and c:\uc\ultima contains u8.exe and a static/ subdirectory?
[19:17:17] <wjp> c:\uc\ultima8, I mean
[19:17:36] <Yjarth> definetly
[19:17:49] <wjp> can you paste your entire stdout.txt into that pastebin? I'll take a look when I get back again
[19:18:00] <Yjarth> ok
[19:18:02] <Yjarth> thanks
