[02:31:02] --> Mr_Bones_ has joined #uwadv
[02:31:55] <Mr_Bones_> greetings.
[02:32:28] <Mr_Bones_> someone has requested that uwadv be added to gentoo's portage.
[02:32:35] <Mr_Bones_> here's the bug report: http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=62938
[02:33:34] <Cahaan> greetings Mr_Bones_
[02:34:40] <Cahaan> thanks for contributing to the eternal breath of ultima underworld :p
[02:36:03] <Mr_Bones_> one question...the download page references http://www.stygianabyss.com/uw/decomorono/
[02:36:14] <Mr_Bones_> that page contains the full version of the game
[02:36:53] <Mr_Bones_> has that been released ala ultima4
[02:37:09] <Mr_Bones_> or is that a non-legal version?
[02:37:10] <Cahaan> what do you mean?
[02:37:30] <Mr_Bones_> about ultima4?
[02:37:35] <Cahaan> I think it's non-legal but tolerated by the authors
[02:37:37] <Cahaan> not sure though
[02:38:03] <Mr_Bones_> ok, darn.
[02:38:26] <Mr_Bones_> it would be nice to be able to make an ebuild for uwadv that downloaded the zip file and installed it.
[02:38:58] <Cahaan> yes that would be nice
[02:40:00] <Mr_Bones_> can uwadv read the resource files right out of the zip file or do you have to unpack and install the files separately?
[02:40:25] <Cahaan> I don't know, I'm don't belong to the developpement team :s
[02:40:37] <Cahaan> I don't*
[02:41:23] <Mr_Bones_> hmmmm.
[02:43:09] <-- Leo42 has left IRC ("Nothing hurts a project more than developers not taking the time to let their community know what is going on.")
[02:50:16] <Cahaan> have you ever heard about this project ?
[02:50:17] <Cahaan> http://www.peroxide.dk/underworld/
[02:55:22] <Mr_Bones_> cool
[02:58:04] <Cahaan> too bad it will never be finished
[02:58:20] <Cahaan> the engine is nice too
[03:04:37] <Mr_Bones_> I wonder how the xu4 guys got origin to allow the distribution of the zip file.
[18:54:48] --> vividos has joined #uwadv
[18:54:51] <vividos> hi
[18:55:30] <wjp> hi vividos
[18:55:37] <vividos> just wanted to tell you that the stygianabyss page has a link to the full uw1 version, but the link is broken, since uw1 would be illegal to have for download
[18:56:11] <vividos> the uw1 demo is available, though, and if one wants to package uwadv with all needed files, the uw demo should better be used
[18:57:39] * vividos wonders if Mr_Bones_ is still there :)
[19:00:20] <vividos> aah, pizza's ready :)
[19:24:25] <vividos> have to go again. bye!
[19:24:32] <-- vividos has left IRC ("Leaving")
