[00:24:02] <Dragst> hyaargh
[00:24:05] <Dragst> is anybody out here
[00:26:38] <servus> Yarr
[00:27:25] <Dragst> aye
[00:27:37] <Dragst> I've been avoiding the music remaking completely
[00:27:41] <Dragst> could you do me a favor
[00:27:52] <Dragst> start noticing me!
[00:28:46] <servus> Yar?
[00:28:56] <servus> WJP is asleep
[00:29:07] <Dragst> no matter
[00:29:11] <servus> Vividos is apparently on vacation. I've been subjugated to the lowly role of 'artist'.
[00:29:16] <Dragst> mmkay
[00:29:18] <Dragst> darneth
[00:29:24] <Dragst> where is the project going ?
[00:29:26] <servus> Vividos has been absent for ages in fact.
[00:29:33] <servus> Ehh, I just asked that, and wjp isn't sure :-)
[00:29:37] <Dragst> lol
[00:29:38] <Dragst> ok =)
[00:29:44] <Dragst> I'm sure this will turn out ok
[00:31:25] <Dragst> but really
[00:31:31] <Dragst> could you start asking me of the tunes =)
[00:31:34] <servus> How are you redoing the music? Did you rent the London Philharmonic?
[00:31:43] <Dragst> aye
[00:31:45] <Dragst> ;)
[00:31:52] <servus> Do they know MIDI?
[00:31:54] <Dragst> have you heard anything from me?
[00:31:59] <servus> I think so. *looks*
[00:32:30] <servus> There was an UW update on the 10th.
[00:32:47] <Dragst> just listened of my wanderer remake 5 minutes ago
[00:32:48] <servus> Are you the 'digital music pack' on the uwadv download page?
[00:32:48] <Dragst> gotta tell you
[00:32:59] <Dragst> it was better than I remembered :)
[00:33:00] <Dragst> no :P
[00:33:06] <Dragst> but I'm someone like that too
[00:33:10] <servus> Is this music Underworld related?
[00:33:13] <Dragst> www.draconus.com/dss
[00:33:15] <Dragst> absolutely
[00:33:17] <Dragst> it IS uw1 music
[00:34:04] * servus leeches
[00:34:07] <Dragst> :P
[00:34:15] <Dragst> there's some other remakes too as you can see
[00:34:32] <Dragst> those uw2 ones were made quite much before I even heard of uwadv
[00:35:08] <servus> So tell me, do you have more credits than The Fat Man? :-)
[00:35:52] <Dragst> hehe
[00:36:07] <Dragst> well, I got my own game company
[00:36:09] <Dragst> www.draconus.com
[00:36:19] <Dragst> and I play harpsichord, organ and piano. that's about it ;)
[00:37:39] <servus> Heh
[00:38:12] <Dragst> I'm not exactly sure what you wanted to know :)
[00:38:23] <Dragst> my english, you see
[00:39:20] <servus> http://www.amazon.com/gp/reader/1592730094/ref=sib_dp_pt/104-5054202-8500721#reader-page Is this you?
[00:40:32] <Dragst> lol
[00:40:33] <Dragst> no =)
[00:43:02] <servus> How sad!
[00:43:11] <Dragst> heh
[00:43:21] <Dragst> yeah, I don't have fancy gear like that to wear!
[00:43:24] * servus gets CVS on Exult
[00:43:33] <servus> He also has credits on over 200 games
[00:43:39] * servus grins
[00:43:42] <Dragst> I know
[00:43:52] <Dragst> he isn't a newbie =)
[00:43:58] <Dragst> I'm rather young
[00:44:03] <servus> Eh, my dad worked with him, so for a while it was Fat Man this, Fat Man that
[00:44:24] <servus> Can't be too young, none of the kids even know what the Dragons are, let alone what Ultima is
[00:44:37] <Dragst> aye
[00:44:43] <Dragst> but from a business/development perspective
[00:45:00] * servus noddles
[00:45:07] <servus> (No, Darke didn't make up 'noddle')
[00:45:33] <Dragst> but I'm sure you won't at least be disappointed when you hear the tunez :P
[00:46:11] <Dragst> to tell the truth, I just thought I'd finish this wanderer tune of UW1
[00:46:22] <servus> Ehh? You're gonna make me turn off my Joe Cocker?
[00:47:25] <Dragst> hell yeah
[00:47:27] <Dragst> ;P
[00:47:44] <servus> This better be better than Catfish
[00:48:02] * Dragst assures servus
[00:48:22] <servus> I thought you said you played Organ?
[00:50:35] <Dragst> hmm?
[00:50:44] <Dragst> does that have something to do with.. anything =)
[00:50:54] <servus> The harpsichord is rather rich, but the organ is synthy and the strings are especially synth-sounding
[00:51:43] <servus> Hmm, better lead in Praecor Loth, but it needs work in uw2-combat :-p
[00:52:09] <Dragst> heh
[00:52:19] <Dragst> who said I could do all with real instruments :-/
[00:52:34] <servus> A viola isn't /that/ hard to use *grin*
[00:53:01] <Dragst> comparing to those I leeched from the site, I think I'm doing pretty good...
[00:53:06] <Dragst> heh, no, but to use it well is
[00:54:19] <servus> With an extremely expensive synth, uw2-combat.midi sounds /excellent/
[00:54:30] <servus> I like the others, though
[00:55:38] <Dragst> yah mon
[00:55:50] <Dragst> and you probably know.. there's always room for improvement :P
[00:57:32] <servus> Ehh, wjp is never happy with my art, so I can be mean to the musicians ;-)
[00:58:12] <Dragst> hahaha!
[00:58:18] <Dragst> how lucky of you :P
[00:58:34] <servus> Wow, this book by the Fat Man is really good
[00:58:41] <servus> I should buy it!
[00:59:59] <servus> "Stick a hot fork in your eye, you evil moron"
[01:00:48] <Dragst> hmm
[01:00:56] <Dragst> btw
[01:01:03] <Dragst> how playable uwadv is otm?
[01:02:51] <servus> Not playable, but explorable. Put it like that :-)
[01:03:37] <Dragst> hehe
[01:03:56] <Dragst> how many people there _really_ are doing anything?
[01:05:28] <servus> Everyone seems pretty busy... Someone posted to the dev log on the 10th of this month though...
[01:05:33] <servus> Nominally, two people, though
[01:07:41] <Dragst> ugh
[01:07:49] <Dragst> hey, what year was uw1 released?
[01:08:54] <servus> 1991
[01:09:48] <Dragst> aye
[01:09:48] <Dragst> iok
[01:09:49] <Dragst> -i
[01:13:12] <servus> Ehh, SF CVS is still giving me guff
[01:13:40] <servus> Interesting, pserver works
[01:14:18] <servus> Though... slowly....
[01:14:45] <Dragst> http://www.draconus.com/dss/files/Uw1_-_Wanderer.zip
[01:20:59] <servus> Not bad
[01:22:35] <servus> My copy is truncated. Is it supposed to be?
[01:25:22] <Dragst> whaa?
[01:25:30] <Dragst> it's not complete or something?
[01:28:14] <servus> It just ends in the middle of a beat
[01:28:39] <servus> 1.9MB
[01:34:55] <Dragst> hmm
[01:35:01] <Dragst> wonder if I fucked up something
[01:35:02] <Dragst> lemme check
[01:36:23] <Dragst> well
[01:36:26] <Dragst> it's ok in here
[01:36:43] <Dragst> it might be possible, that you get some artifacts because of the "loop"
[01:36:49] <Dragst> that's how it goes in the game
[01:37:02] <Dragst> maybe winamp or something you use cuts it wrong etc
[01:37:04] <Dragst> dunno
[01:37:04] <Dragst> :(
[01:48:54] <servus> Hmm
[01:48:54] <servus> I use xmms
[01:48:57] <servus> I'll download it again
[01:57:46] <servus> Well it's 2:02 and checsums fine, but cuts off in the middle of a whole note.
