[18:33:48] --> Crysta has joined #tfl
[18:33:48] --- ChanServ gives voice to Crysta
[18:34:57] <Crysta> ?log
[18:34:57] <exultbot> Logs are available at http://log.usecode.org/tfllog.php
[23:18:08] <servus> Hiya Crysta.
[23:18:19] <Crysta> hi
[23:18:34] <servus> TFL seems pretty much dead, eh?
[23:18:37] <servus> There's still UO though : o)
[23:18:38] <Crysta> figured i might as well show up again
[23:18:41] <Crysta> yeah, it does
[23:18:51] <Crysta> and UO..
[23:19:09] <Crysta> KR has gotten me pretty unhinged in regards to UO
[23:19:18] <Crysta> something about them not fixing their mess fast enough
[23:19:45] <servus> KR is ridiculous and unplayable.
[23:19:57] <servus> They made it a little faster, but now it bluescreens my computer randomly :-p
[23:20:01] <Crysta> its close to playable for me
[23:20:21] <Crysta> just ever so slightly not there that using it annoys me to no end
[23:20:46] <servus> It feels very "alpha" for sure.
[23:20:49] <Crysta> and i've been able to rule out eveything but bad coding on their end
[23:21:13] <servus> Well, the original UO was made when programmers couldn't afford to be sloppy or lax *grin*
[23:21:18] <Crysta> lol
[23:21:20] <Crysta> yeah..
[23:21:26] <Crysta> KR has improved at least
[23:21:30] <servus> As far as TFL... Wiz has only himself to blame.
[23:21:38] <servus> I'm afraid to start it up again, lest I bluescreen
[23:22:04] <Crysta> but they said not to expect much this month because they're busy with the anniversary stuff (that will be old within a few days of its release im sure)
[23:22:07] <servus> Happened in Brit Tailors last time, but what if it's Destard?
[23:22:23] <servus> Anniversary? More recoloured fishing poles and pillows or something?
[23:22:28] <Crysta> the patches we got last week were probably all we'll be getting this month
[23:22:54] <servus> I just can't get back into the game. I pay my subscription and log on every now and again... run a dedicated UOAM server.
[23:23:02] <Crysta> all they've said so far is the rest of the virtue armor set
[23:23:29] <Crysta> well that and we're not getting a boxed release for it.. tis all gonna be in game stuff
[23:23:39] <Crysta> japan is getting a box though
[23:23:49] <servus> That's good. Boxes are just another cash cow they shove on us
[23:24:02] <Crysta> actually i would have wanted this one
[23:24:35] <servus> Meh. I'm embarrassed by what UO/Ultim has become :-(
[23:24:46] <Crysta> the box comes out to about $50 because it includes a gametime card
[23:25:30] <Crysta> 100 days... i'd buy multiple boxes for those.. its a pain and a half to mail in a check for the game
[23:25:48] <servus> You pay by check still?? :-p
[23:26:00] <Crysta> don't own a credit card and don't want to
[23:26:10] <Crysta> and i keep not bothering with getting a debit card
[23:26:21] <servus> There are PayPal debit cards too
[23:26:48] <Crysta> i think tis because i wouldnt trust myself with a debit card
[23:26:48] <Crysta> lol
[23:28:29] <Crysta> anyway i'd rather they ignore the anniversary like they used to do and focus on fixing KR
[23:28:59] <servus> I can't believe they did KR anyway. They already tried the exact same concept and it bombed. So they redid it.
[23:29:22] <Crysta> they did better this time aside from the "needing too much for what its giving" thing
[23:30:00] <servus> I just don't understand why it bogs down on my very fast computer and still looks like a 1990's game.
[23:30:30] <Crysta> think of it this way... do you really want to see what they would have come up with for a full 3D client if KR got us this?
[23:30:49] <servus> Exult3D:)
[23:30:58] <Crysta> it would be unplayable on all but supercomputers if it came from them
[23:31:27] <servus> There were rumours that UO3D was going to run on the Unreal Tournament engine *grin*
[23:31:30] <Crysta> and even those wouldnt work that well
[23:32:09] <Crysta> they'd be the first people to make the unreal tournament enging have trouble running on todays PCs
[23:32:15] <Crysta> *engine
[23:34:34] <servus> Not like I even care about graphics. Nice that they're forcing their new client if you want to see the new dungeons... wonder how long that'll last when no one goes in
[23:35:12] <Crysta> i will :P
[23:35:20] <servus> But you're a fanatic :-p
[23:35:22] <Crysta> i've been wanting more challenge for a while anyway
[23:35:54] <servus> Does the new UOKR box even *include* the 2D client?
[23:36:02] <servus> Doesn't look like it!
[23:36:04] <Crysta> yes
[23:36:12] <Crysta> er..
[23:36:19] <Crysta> the 10th anny one in japan i mean
[23:36:19] <servus> I don't see it in my UOKR installation
[23:38:38] <servus> New Mugen 10th anniversary item: Blackthorne's Death Note
[23:39:01] <Crysta> o.O
[23:42:14] <servus> Well... maybe not this year :)
[23:42:53] <Crysta> lol
[23:44:42] * servus blarghs.
[23:44:56] <servus> Still interested in working on TFL?
[23:45:07] <Crysta> yeah, kinda :p
[23:46:18] <servus> Meh. I should dissuade you >:)
[23:46:26] <Crysta> ?
[23:48:07] <servus> Nah. Never mind - I'm just still bitter at it *grin*
[23:49:28] <Crysta> ah
[23:53:24] <Crysta> wait, at what?
[23:55:37] <servus> Never mind :-p *rolls up and sleeps in a nearby pile of hay and straw*
