[17:33:27] <vividos> wjp, about that YUV422 guy ... I guess he tries to port SDL to the xbox, right?
[17:34:19] <wjp> hm, not sure. He did seem to be talking about xbox stuff, though
[17:36:34] <vividos> hmm, did he try to port exult to xbox?
[17:41:58] <wjp> I really don't know :-)
[17:42:23] <vividos> would be cool. and uwadv would run, too, as it has an nvidia card, I think
[17:47:33] <wjp> I created a postgresql database of all BG/SI items last night :-)
[17:47:56] <wjp> it's really easy to find matching keys/doors, and things like that now :-)
[17:49:52] <vividos> with an exult data source?
[17:50:47] <wjp> I had the object reading function in exult output SQL code to stdout
[17:50:56] <vividos> ah cool thing!
[17:51:55] <vividos> how long was the output?
[17:52:06] <wjp> 33000 objects for BG, 36000 for SI
[17:52:36] <wjp> 4-5Mb of SQL commands
[17:52:49] <vividos> nice :)
[17:54:55] <vividos> the underworld adventures debugger can browse object lists, too (but the list ctrl is somewhat limited)
[17:55:11] <vividos> is there a web interface or so?
[17:55:27] <wjp> no
[17:55:36] <wjp> you're the second person who asked, though :-)
[17:56:26] <vividos> heh, no wonder

[20:05:46] --> DarkIllus has joined #uwadv
[20:05:52] <DarkIllus> Hey everyone!!
[20:06:11] <DarkIllus> We have released our project and named it Mysteries of the Abyss
[20:06:11] <DarkIllus> :)
[20:06:59] <DarkIllus> Vividos!!
[20:07:31] <wjp> hi
[20:07:34] <wjp> congrats :-)
[20:07:53] <DarkIllus> thankyou wjp!
[20:08:25] <DarkIllus> we released it about 7 hours ago. only have had about 60 downloads so far. :(
[20:08:43] <DarkIllus> itz rather buggy though. i took a closer look afterwards and saw a floating bridge and box on level 1
[20:08:45] <DarkIllus> lol
[20:09:09] <DarkIllus> i need your help vividos!!
[20:09:37] <wjp> <vividos> away a bit
[20:09:51] <DarkIllus> where did he go? :(
[20:09:59] <DarkIllus> arent u a bit of a programmer wjp?
[20:10:07] <DarkIllus> does coren come here btw?
[20:10:46] <wjp> I'm a programmer, yes
[20:11:00] <wjp> yeah, Coren comes here, but he hasn't been here in quite a while now
[20:11:44] <DarkIllus> and u specialise in uw2 right? :)
[20:13:11] <wjp> no, I specialize in U7 and U8 :-)
[20:13:59] <DarkIllus> oh. lol
[20:14:24] <DarkIllus> have u decoded all the creature stats for them?
[20:14:42] <wjp> not me personally
[20:14:57] <wjp> but I think we have most (if not all) of the creature stats of U7
[20:15:00] <DarkIllus> but u have done it? :)
[20:15:09] <DarkIllus> could i have a look at them plz
[20:16:58] <wjp> well, that's a bit complicated
[20:17:10] <wjp> exult reads the creature stats from the data files
[20:17:28] <wjp> we don't have them in a human readable format anywhere
[20:18:52] <DarkIllus> but uve figured our which one is which
[20:19:06] <DarkIllus> how did u do that? we have the stats for UW creatures
[20:19:11] <DarkIllus> but we can't read the table. :(
[20:20:35] <wjp> oh, I didn't... somebody else did :-)
[20:20:41] <wjp> it basically involves a lot of guessing :-)
[20:21:18] <DarkIllus> http://users.tpg.com.au/ron3sun/screenshots2.htm
[20:21:24] <DarkIllus> some new screenshots. :)
[20:22:14] <wjp> not bad at all :-)
[20:23:01] <DarkIllus> is there somewhere i could host our project?
[20:23:12] <DarkIllus> cause we are with fileplanet and it really sux how u have to login
[20:23:14] <DarkIllus> and queue up
[20:23:29] <wjp> hm, no idea
[21:17:54] <vividos> still away, but you could announce it on http://reconstruction.voyd.net/, or just send a news mail to gamespydaily or rpgplanet
[22:04:32] <DarkIllus> Vividos!!
[22:04:38] <DarkIllus> are u still there?? :)
[22:04:47] <DarkIllus> i am on rpgplanet
[22:04:49] <DarkIllus> i dont like it
[22:08:38] <DarkIllus> um..about copyright concerns
[22:08:46] <DarkIllus> what happened to Ultima1-ALR
[22:17:38] <wjp> didn't telemachos explain that a few days ago?
[22:30:06] <DarkIllus> yes. but i had to go
[22:30:15] <DarkIllus> can EA Games sue me?
[22:30:33] <wjp> probably
[22:30:44] <DarkIllus> lol. even if im not in the US
[22:31:05] <DarkIllus> but all that happens is that they will shut our project down right?
[22:31:10] <wjp> most likely, yes
[22:31:14] <DarkIllus> no fines, no nothing. unless i be an idiot
[22:31:14] <wjp> but IANAL
[22:31:22] <DarkIllus> IANAL?
[22:31:26] <wjp> I am not a lawyer :-)
[22:31:37] <DarkIllus> lol. im supposed to be one
[22:31:40] <DarkIllus> heheheheheh
[22:32:02] <DarkIllus> im sure napster did alot more infringement than i did
[22:33:27] <DarkIllus> ill just start my might and magic VII mod if they shut me down
[22:33:30] <DarkIllus> lol
[22:33:33] <DarkIllus> or my baulder's gate 2 mod
[22:34:04] <-- yot has left IRC ()
