[21:33:12] --> Copernica has joined #uwadv
[21:33:25] <Copernica> hello, having a problem with muffin
[21:33:51] <Copernica> uw1 is installed in /usr/local/share/games/uw1/ and uwadv.cfg reflects this.
[21:33:58] <Copernica> however, when i run uwadv, i get
[21:34:05] <Copernica> could not find relevant game files
[21:34:07] <Copernica> and it dies
[21:35:11] <Copernica> i compiled with --with-uw1=/usr/local/share/games/uw1, without the trailing slash.
[21:35:26] <Copernica> but i notice that uwadv.cfg specifies that there must be a trailing slash in the path name
[21:35:28] <Copernica> so could that be it?
[21:38:20] <wjp> that could be it, yes
[21:39:39] <Copernica> you worked on exult, didn't you?
[21:39:49] <Copernica> i recognize your nick from #exult.
[21:41:45] * wjp nods
[21:43:43] <wjp> we should probably fix that slash issue sometime
[21:44:14] <Copernica> you mean, make it not matter whether it's there or not?
[21:44:19] <wjp> yeah
[21:46:09] <Copernica> it took me a while just to get the data files off the cd
[21:46:21] <Copernica> i have uw1 on an old bundled cd that came with an sb16
[21:46:39] <Copernica> and dosemu was being strange with the install program
[21:47:48] <Copernica> ok, that was not the problem
[21:47:57] <Copernica> compiling with the trailing slash did not fix it.
[21:48:09] <wjp> you don't actually need to recompile for that
[21:48:15] <wjp> just edit the path in the config file
[21:48:20] <Copernica> i tried that
[21:48:25] <wjp> k :-)
[21:48:46] <Copernica> btw, i assume that uw1-path should end with /uw1/, not the parent directory where the uw1 dir is
[21:48:47] <Copernica> right?
[21:49:01] <wjp> yeah
[21:49:33] <Copernica> ok, should i file a bug report?
[21:49:48] <wjp> ah, just thought of something
[21:49:52] <wjp> did you convert all file names to lowercase?
[21:49:56] <Copernica> yes
[21:50:01] <Copernica> with the perl script included
[21:50:17] <wjp> did you get all subdirectories?
[21:50:28] <Copernica> there are no subdirs
[21:50:40] <Copernica> all the data files are in one directory
[21:51:05] <wjp> really? hm, I might be confusing it with uw2 then :-)
[21:51:31] <Copernica> what would you suggest at this point?
[21:51:31] <wjp> hm, no, doesn't look like I am, actually
[21:51:38] <wjp> I have crit, cuts, data, sound subdirs
[21:51:51] <Copernica> hmm
[21:51:55] <Copernica> i wonder...
[21:52:10] <Copernica> maybe when i rared it all up to transfer to my linux partition it got rid of all the subdirs
[21:53:20] <Copernica> yep
[21:53:22] <Copernica> that was it.
[22:02:53] <Copernica> ok, here's another thing
[22:03:15] <Copernica> the instructions for setting the path to the uadata directory are inconsistent with those for the uw1 dir
[22:03:36] <Copernica> in the first instance, you have to specify "uw1", whereas in the second if you specify "uadata" at the end of the path, SDL segfaults.
[22:08:05] <-- Copernica has left IRC ("Client Exiting")
[23:28:53] <vividos> hmm, didn't quite understand what exactly is inconsistent ...
[23:32:30] <vividos> ok, should go to bed. night!
[23:32:41] <-- vividos has left IRC ("Leaving")
[23:51:13] <-- wjp has left IRC ("Zzzz...")
