[11:53:04] <vividos> hi
[11:53:26] <wjp> hi
[12:30:59] <vividos> lol. an article on salon.com used an uwadv screen shot to show how uw1 looked :)
[12:31:19] <wjp> hehe :-)
[12:31:20] <wjp> nice
[12:31:20] <vividos> the text says: "There were rudimentary lighting effects which furthered the illusion of distance and mystery within a living world."
[12:31:30] <vividos> we don't even have lighting in uwadv yet :)
[12:31:35] <wjp> *cough* :-)
[12:31:44] <wjp> hm, what's this about the debian package?
[12:32:18] <wjp> what debian are the packages supposed to be for?
[12:32:43] <wjp> (stable, unstable, testing?)
[12:32:45] <vividos> the .deb package is apparently compiled using a stable release. a friend told me that the stable system still works with very old packages like gcc-2.95.3, etc.
[12:33:04] <wjp> yeah, debian's stable is notoriously old :-)
[12:33:37] <vividos> some packages and libraries probably don't match, although it is possible to pull in unstable packages into a stable system
[12:35:00] <wjp> I'd expect you'd need/want to recompile
[12:35:39] <vividos> some stable packages?
[12:35:54] <vividos> or the uwadv .deb package?
[12:36:23] <wjp> uwadv
[12:36:34] <vividos> btw, the salon link is http://www.salon.com/tech/feature/2003/05/05/doom/index1.html but it's ad-protected :/
[12:37:04] <vividos> I'll wait what radoslaw has to say about this
[12:37:23] * wjp nods
[12:37:31] * wjp watches obligatory ad for a car
[12:37:38] <wjp> as if I have the money to buy a car :-)
[12:38:05] <vividos> heh, me too
[12:38:47] <vividos> hmm, would post the interesting parts, but don't know if I get kicked when doing it
[12:40:08] <wjp> flood protection on freenode is quite tolerant
[12:41:23] <vividos> http://www.asamnet.de/~finkm/uwadv/Salon_com_article_page2.html
[12:41:39] <vividos> the first part tells some stuff from uw1's creation
[12:44:11] <vividos> http://www.gamespy.com/articles/july01/top501aspe/
[12:48:37] * vividos wonders why U4 is on 7th place where UW1 is on 8th only
[12:55:33] <vividos> hmm, have to go again. bye!
[12:55:37] <wjp> bye
[12:55:57] <-- vividos has left IRC ("Leaving")
[21:54:31] <-- wjp has left IRC ("Zzzz...")
