[15:38:21] <Monochrome_> *plz
[15:38:30] <pupnik> http://www.journey-tribute.com/journey/resources/atari2600/
[15:40:53] <Monochrome_> lol
[15:41:19] <pupnik> the groupies look like red clams
[15:41:42] <pupnik> the big hero manager looks like the Kool-Aid pitcher guy from the 70s-80s advertisements

[15:49:20] <pupnik> clam or snapper being popular slang for vagina back in the day...
[17:38:19] --> DarthJesus has joined #pentagram
[17:38:45] <DarthJesus> wjp
[17:40:05] <Monochrome_> lol your name better not be Ezekiel Godsmith
[17:40:34] <Monochrome_> fo real
[17:55:27] <pupnik> fo sho
[17:59:41] <Monochrome_> srsly, for his sake, that better not be his real name
[18:02:22] <pupnik> have you played through Ultima4 Monochrome_ ?
[18:04:16] <Monochrome_> unfortunely no
[18:04:30] <Monochrome_> why, is there a char named Ezekiel Godsmith?
[18:05:14] <pupnik> i could use someone to playtest my journaling version
[18:06:00] <pupnik> there are a few things that need to be done to make it winnable without a notebook sitting by your side
[18:06:24] <Monochrome_> hum, so you need an experienced player or an unexperienced one?
[18:06:27] <pupnik> need to check out the sega version too - see what they did for it
[18:06:39] <pupnik> well it will be a few weeks before it's ready
[18:07:01] <pupnik> part of the fun of it is having to remember the hints
[18:07:07] <pupnik> and what to ask certain characters
[18:07:23] <pupnik> but that's also pretty difficult for occasional gamers
[18:08:29] <pupnik> so i'm thinking of either journaling important conversations as the player encounters them
[18:09:40] <pupnik> e.g. Skara Brae: Mitre - "Ask of the stone at the Tap in Trinsic!"
[18:10:25] <pupnik> But tapping-in the conversations is pretty slow
[18:10:29] <Monochrome_> ye
[18:10:32] <Monochrome_> becuase you know
[18:10:56] <Monochrome_> back then games were only stupidly difficult because there was no other way of doing them
[18:11:31] <pupnik> or... enabling custom conversation points as clickable menu items, iff the player has encountered the hint of what to ask before
[18:12:00] <pupnik> so for e.g. talking to the bartender will only show the option "Stone" if you've gotten the hint from Mitre
[18:13:06] <pupnik> that would be a lot more work though. implementing a hint journal would be a lot quicker
[18:13:50] <Monochrome_> you could make a scroll down list with all possible actions for
[18:15:17] <pupnik> cat Tra |cut -d : -f 1 |sort -u |wc -l
[18:15:18] <pupnik> 257
[18:15:23] <pupnik> long list
[18:15:54] <Monochrome_> lol
