[18:19:39] --- ChanServ gives channel operator status to wizardrydragon
[18:22:31] <servus> You never sent the U7MAP.
[18:22:46] <wizardrydragon> It never sent?
[18:22:55] <wizardrydragon> Here, I'll send it now then.
[18:26:01] <wizardrydragon> Should be sent
[18:28:13] <wizardrydragon> I sent both the original u7mapper output and the most current cleaned up version I have. I never did get a chance to try the cleaner you sent; I was tryhing to fix ES with Marzo and then working all yesterday, and just woke up today :)
[18:32:08] <wizardrydragon> Did you recieve the email?
[18:35:16] <servus> Yes, looks good, I'll clean it up
[18:35:28] <wizardrydragon> Yay
[18:35:47] <wizardrydragon> I wonder why the other one never sent :|
[19:07:30] <wizardrydragon> servus: Any lucK?
[19:08:14] <servus> What makes you think I'm working on it? :)
[19:08:33] <servus> Though, down from 26,055 wrong tiles to 9,037 so far.
[19:08:43] <wizardrydragon> This little thing called "hope" :)
[19:08:49] <wizardrydragon> And that sounds better
[19:11:42] <servus> It's improper to expect anyone in any of these channels to respond quickly, or do some work as quickly as you'd like
[19:12:39] <wizardrydragon> I asked that more wondering if you were working on it than expecting it to be done.
[19:13:21] <servus> 8,338 failures so far
[19:13:48] <servus> Well it needs manual intervention once it stops optimizing, because it gets confused.
[19:14:04] <wizardrydragon> Ah.
[19:14:33] <wizardrydragon> Well just tell me when it's done; I'm working on the TFL website myself right now ... not as interesting, I know :)
[19:16:00] <servus> There's a problem with it. I'll work on it later.
[19:16:12] <wizardrydragon> Okay.
[19:45:25] --> SB-X has joined #TFL
[19:49:49] <wizardrydragon> Hey there SB-X
[19:57:27] <wizardrydragon> For those that are interested, a development snapshot of TFL is now available via http://www.u7feudallands.com/downloads.php
[20:07:59] <SB-X> neat
[20:08:05] <wizardrydragon> :)
[20:08:18] <SB-X> i didnt know there were and downloadable versions yet
[20:08:24] <SB-X> any*
[20:09:13] <wizardrydragon> There are some old ones on the forum, all dev snapshots; that one is the newest. It's just the current CVS version as with the Exult snapshots, hoswever unlike the Exult snapshots we're far from a full or stable release, so it's probablhy unstable :)
[20:11:22] <SB-X> are there instructions?
[20:12:04] <wizardrydragon> What do you mean, exactly?
[20:12:19] <wizardrydragon> The readme.txt explains some of the new features, if that's what you mean.
[20:12:21] <SB-X> on how to install it
[20:12:24] <wizardrydragon> Ah.
[20:12:49] <wizardrydragon> Set the install path to a /mods/ directroy under the Black Gate. It should do the rest.
[20:12:53] <wizardrydragon> It being the installer.
[20:13:03] <wizardrydragon> I'll make a note of that on the downloads page :)
[20:13:47] <SB-X> Ok thanks, i'll play with it when I'm in WinXP again.
[20:14:10] <wizardrydragon> :)
[20:15:22] <wizardrydragon> There's not a whole lot yet, but there is the karma system and the Feudal Lands map implemented, as well as a few other things.
[20:18:52] <wizardrydragon> I'm going to recompile the usecode and remake the install so that some of the newer (and less stable ;) ) features are also present
[20:22:09] <SB-X> What did you hint at when saying "Eventually" to more colors in Exult?
[20:22:39] <wizardrydragon> It's on the developer's to do list, just under several other things ;)
[20:23:48] <wizardrydragon> I've been after them about expanding the pallete for two years and I don't plan on letting up, in either event :)
[22:14:02] <wizardrydragon> and I'm back
[22:15:45] <SB-X> WB!
[22:19:51] <wizardrydragon> :)
[22:53:35] --> Marzo has joined #TFL
[22:53:42] <wizardrydragon> Hey there Marzo
[22:53:47] <Marzo> Hi
[22:53:50] <Marzo> ?log
[22:53:50] <exultbot> Logs are available at http://www.math.leidenuniv.nl/~wpalenst/tfllog.php
[22:59:41] <wizardrydragon> You didnt miss an awful lot :)
[23:00:46] <wizardrydragon> Ii do have a website for TFL up at http://www.u7feudallands.com now though, that is, more than just the forum
[23:01:03] <Marzo> Yes, I saw it
[23:01:24] <wizardrydragon> What'd you think? It's a little spartan now, I think.
[23:02:20] <Marzo> It is not like there is a lot to show right now... so there is no problem in being spartan
[23:02:29] <Marzo> But it looks good
[23:02:47] <wizardrydragon> Thanks :)
[23:03:11] <wizardrydragon> by the way
[23:03:17] <Marzo> Just out of curiosity, what exactly did you mean by 'soon' when you wrote the alpha announcement?
[23:03:42] <wizardrydragon> do you have a link to the UCC highlighter for ConTEXT?
[23:03:48] <wizardrydragon> I had to reinstall it, so I lost it.
[23:04:02] <Marzo> Hold on
[23:04:09] <wizardrydragon> And by soon I mean as soon as everything's stable and nothing will blow up.
[23:04:30] <Marzo> So you meant 'never' :-)
[23:04:34] <SB-X> hi Marzo
[23:04:36] <wizardrydragon> LOL
[23:04:57] <Marzo> Hi
[23:05:08] <SB-X> where's crysta?
[23:05:23] <wizardrydragon> I have yet to get her to go on IRC :P
[23:06:02] <Marzo> I will have to upload the highlighter; will take a moment
[23:06:16] <wizardrydragon> Alright; thank you.
[23:08:18] <Marzo> Here it is: http://www.geocities.com/mg_rpg_online/UCC_Highlighter.zip
[23:08:25] <wizardrydragon> thank you
[23:08:35] <Marzo> Just unzip to your ConTEXT directory and it will go to its proper place
[23:08:54] <wizardrydragon> Yep, just what I did :)
[23:09:41] <Marzo> It still does not highlight the (still under development) UCC classes, but will in the future
[23:10:02] <wizardrydragon> Okay.
[23:10:09] <wizardrydragon> Still better than a kick in the pants though :)
[23:10:19] <Marzo> lol
[23:11:21] <Marzo> Oh, and about yesterday's bug report: I can't reproduce it here
[23:11:43] <Marzo> Can you give more details (when you can) about what you do to cause it?
[23:12:25] <wizardrydragon> Just dragging chunks seems to trigger the "chunks have been modified" code (or something which causes the same corruption)
[23:12:33] <wizardrydragon> From ES to Exult, I mean
[23:16:17] <Marzo> OK, reproduced
[23:16:43] <wizardrydragon> Good ... kinda :)
[23:22:44] <wizardrydragon> Oooh. Is Exult supposed to crash when I drag ES Chunks into it? :P
[23:23:57] <wizardrydragon> Doesn't have anything useful in stderr either.
[23:24:14] <Marzo> No
[23:24:29] <wizardrydragon> Want to cache out around super chunk: 104 = 8, 8
[23:24:29] <wizardrydragon> Want to cache out around super chunk: 104 = 8, 8
[23:24:29] <wizardrydragon> Want to cache out around super chunk: 104 = 8, 8
[23:24:29] <wizardrydragon> Game paused
[23:24:29] <wizardrydragon> Last drag pos: (180, 52)
[23:24:30] <wizardrydragon> Set chunk (1073)
[23:24:38] <wizardrydragon> then it crashed :P

[23:49:05] <wizardrydragon> Did you see the website, Crysta? I finished adding the main pages for the website, so now we have something other than a forum :)
[23:49:32] <Crysta> yeah.. i saw
[23:49:51] <wizardrydragon> Any ideas for things I can add to it? It's a bit spartan :P
[23:55:55] <wizardrydragon> I was thinking of adding some screenshots but I'm not sure what to take screenshots of :P
[23:59:15] <wizardrydragon> crysta: did you see what I meant with the demon's off-by-one problems?
