[13:31:23] <yot> hi
[13:31:28] <wjp> hi
[15:37:09] --> Telemacho has joined #uwadv
[15:38:43] <Telemacho> anyone actually at their keys here ?
[15:39:48] <wjp> hi Telemachos
[15:40:52] <Telemacho> hey ;)
[15:41:28] <Telemacho> I promised to help out with some collision stuff ... and I was wondering - what compiler are you using the most ?
[15:41:43] <wjp> hm, not sure
[15:41:50] <Telemacho> Is anyone actually using the VC6 version for example ?
[15:42:08] <Telemacho> (want to use a setup that doesnt require too much tweaking after each cvs update)
[15:42:22] <Telemacho> is the makefile.mingw kept up-to-date for example ?
[15:42:45] <wjp> I think both mingw and vc (dunno what version) are being used actively
[15:43:01] <wjp> I'm the uwadv linux guy, so I'm not really sure, though
[15:43:44] <wjp> but judging by the CVS logs, both the .dsp files and Makefile.mingw are being updated regularly
[15:44:39] <Telemacho> ok.. well, I would have to use VC7 though.. probably too much maintenance.. should proably go for a gcc version... ;)
[15:45:07] <Telemacho> Are you just porting or also involved in the development of the game engine itself ?
[15:49:12] <wjp> currently just porting
[15:54:32] <Telemacho> ok gonna run again, cya later probably ;)

[19:24:29] <wjp> hi
[19:24:48] <phlask> hey wjp! you're back :)
[19:24:55] <wjp> yeah :-)
[19:26:11] <phlask> good... I guess you haven't missed all that much
[19:29:38] <phlask> any cool news on your side by any chance? :)
[19:30:09] <wjp> hm, no, not really
[19:30:40] <wjp> except for the fact that I had a great week while I was away :-)
[19:31:18] <phlask> well... that is something... :) where did you go then?
[19:35:13] <phlask> yot, are you awake by any chance?
[19:35:59] <yot> yes
[19:36:22] <yot> what's the matter?
[19:36:47] <yot> brb gtg
[19:36:53] <yot> i'm back in 30 min
[19:36:53] <phlask> 'k then
[19:37:02] <yot> you can write it down
[19:37:02] <yot> :]
[19:37:07] --- yot is now known as yot|afk
[19:37:10] <wjp> I was a leader on a mathematics summer camp for high school students (in Lunteren)
[19:37:25] <wjp> been doing that for the last 8 years or so; it's really great :-)
[19:37:53] <phlask> sounds like fun... how many sudents were there this year?
[19:38:09] <wjp> 40
[19:38:56] <phlask> that is quite a lot, or isn't it?
[19:40:10] <phlask> I mean... is it more than previous years or about the same?
[19:40:19] <wjp> about the same
[19:40:30] <phlask> ah ok :)
[19:40:57] <wjp> there's another camp the week before (voor de basisschool) that got another 40 kids
[19:41:24] <phlask> good to hear that there are still kids who actually enjoy mathematics
[19:41:25] <wjp> that one even made 'het jeugdjournaal' this year :-)
[19:41:33] <phlask> neat :)
[19:42:31] <phlask> hey, are you also a member of the Exult team by any chance?
[19:42:38] <wjp> yeah :-)
[19:43:18] <phlask> What are you guys up to now that most of it is completed?
[19:43:28] <wjp> mostly bugfixing currently
[19:43:49] <wjp> and adding new features that we think are useful/fun to have
[19:44:05] <wjp> some people are also working on a port to PDAs
[19:44:19] <phlask> as always :) Are you actually considering on doing a completely new game with the engine?
[19:45:13] <wjp> hm, good question
[19:45:38] <phlask> I'll take that as "we don't know yet"
[19:45:55] <wjp> we might, and IIRC Jeff is interested in doing one
[19:46:23] <phlask> cool :) It is about time for another good Ultima game
[19:46:45] <wjp> it won't be an ultima game, though
[19:46:51] <wjp> although, possibly in the same style
[19:47:17] <phlask> well, not a real one of course... but I meant in the same style :)
[19:47:56] <phlask> Have you played U9 by any chance?
[19:48:34] <wjp> yeah, I have
[19:49:30] <phlask> and... did you like it? I've heard *very* mixed reports about the game
[19:50:33] <wjp> well, yeah, I enjoyed playing it
[19:50:56] <wjp> but it really wasn't a good conclusion to the ultima series
[19:51:05] <wjp> it mostly ignored all history
[19:51:52] <phlask> Is the gameplay, atmosphere and storyline anywhere near the quality of U7 and UW?
[20:05:07] <phlask> bbl
