[18:39:47] --> exultbot has joined #uwadv
[18:40:33] <wjp> http://www.math.leidenuniv.nl/~wpalenst/uwadvlog.php
[18:43:41] <Dominus> we just have to talk about something now :-)
[18:43:54] <wjp> um, yes
[18:44:18] <wjp> like... umm...
[18:44:25] <wjp> uhh...
[18:44:48] <Dominus> what kind of interface we would like to have for uwadv
[18:45:01] <Dominus> like configurable keybindings
[18:45:18] <Dominus> also a 1st person shooter needs a console
[18:45:35] * Dominus readies the crossbow to make uwadv a 1st person shooter
[18:46:06] <wjp> *grin* :-)
[18:46:38] <Dominus> also, will uwadv be multiplayer also?
[18:46:41] <Dominus> :-)
[18:48:57] <Dominus> wjp: will you mesage the ML about this channel?
[18:49:08] <wjp> yeah
[18:50:29] --- wjp has changed the topic to: Underworld Adventures: http://uwadv.sourceforge.net
[18:55:17] <Dominus> exultbot: when I later start to go bluescreening you have to record my findings for the world. Understood?
[18:56:09] <exultbot> got it :-)
[18:56:20] <Dominus> he he
[19:36:41] <Dominus> now let's see
[19:36:50] <Dominus> 1st building uwadv
[19:36:52] <Dominus> ...
[19:37:34] <Dominus> ok, that didn't work :-)
[19:39:06] <wjp> hm, it's mildly annoying that configure and co. are in source/linux instead of in the main project dir
[19:39:48] <Dominus> now I put the uadata dir from CVS into my play dir, the paths are set and I'm going to start uwadv.exe, go directly to the game window and exit first with alt-x then with the close button
[19:40:01] <Dominus> wjp: yeah, the same with makefile.mingw
[19:40:15] <Dominus> I guess I'm too spoiled from exult
[19:40:25] <Dominus> ok, here goes...
[19:40:33] <wjp> the exult main dir is too big a mess to notice a couple of extra files anyway :-)
[19:41:02] <Dominus> ok, alt-x worked
[19:41:34] <Dominus> pressing of the button worked as well
[19:41:52] <Dominus> now, I'll first watch part of the intor and then exit
[19:42:33] <Dominus> that worked as well
[19:42:57] <Dominus> now, first watch part of intro, then go to the game window
[19:43:01] <Dominus> then exit
[19:44:02] <Dominus> that worked as well
[19:44:12] <Dominus> arrgh, I hate such bugs
[19:44:22] <Dominus> "eldritch bugs", right?
[19:48:18] <wjp> hm, haven't heard that term before, but it sounds about right
[19:49:35] <-- Dominus has left IRC (Read error: 104 (Connection reset by peer))
[19:52:43] --> Dominus has joined #uwadv
[19:54:31] <Dominus> ok, it crashed me now with the 4th release when I started the game, went into the game window and pressed the close button
[19:54:47] <Dominus> the blue screen ahd some general info but also some technical
[19:54:54] <Dominus> not sure if it helps:
[19:56:06] <Dominus> STOP:0x0000007E (0X0000005, 0xEDCE863F, 0xF896CBA0, 0xF896c8A0)
[19:57:07] <Dominus> ha10kx2k.sys - Address EDCE863E base at EDCA4000, Datestamp 3Caaeda
[19:57:38] <wjp> ha10kx2k.sys?
[19:57:49] <Dominus> that's my soundcard driver
[19:58:05] <Dominus> SB Live! unified drivers
[19:59:10] <Dominus> ok, now to reproducing it
[20:02:51] <-- Dominus has left IRC (Read error: 104 (Connection reset by peer))
[20:02:54] --> Dominik has joined #uwadv
[20:03:23] <Dominik> ok this time it worked right awa
[20:03:24] <Dominik> y
[20:04:17] <Dominik> and this time doing exactly the same didn't crash
[20:06:36] <-- Dominik has left IRC (Read error: 104 (Connection reset by peer))
[20:06:38] --> Dominus has joined #uwadv
[20:07:12] <Dominus> this must be fun, seeing me hop in, hop off
[20:07:14] <Dominus> :-)
[20:07:18] <wjp> yup ;-)
[20:07:22] <Dominus> wjp: I might have an idea. actualyl pretty weird.
[20:07:27] <Dominus> actually
[20:07:51] <Dominus> the time it didn't crash the lst time I was here, I had deleted the stdout.txt
[20:08:20] <Dominus> after it quit normally I put the same stdout.txt back there and then it crashed again
[20:08:27] <Dominus> related?
[20:08:43] <Dominus> or coincidence?
[20:08:50] <wjp> hm, I would guess coincidence
[20:08:58] <Dominus> me too
[20:09:16] <Dominus> ok, here we go again
[20:15:31] <-- Dominus has left IRC (Read error: 104 (Connection reset by peer))
[20:15:34] --> Dominik has joined #uwadv
[20:16:00] <Dominik> hmm
[20:16:02] <Dominik> could this be some kind of memory corruption or so?
[20:16:21] <Dominik> I just did a "stress test" and it crashed
[20:16:43] <Dominik> I started it, presses journey onward, alt-x
[20:16:54] <Dominik> repeat 4 times and then it crashed
[20:17:26] <wjp> hm, your guess is as good as mine
[20:17:30] --- Dominik is now known as Dominus
[20:30:04] <Dominus> now I'm going to look if changing of the system midi driver changes anything
[20:31:59] <Dominus> ok, that didn'T crash on stress testing...
[20:36:31] <-- Dominus has left IRC (Read error: 104 (Connection reset by peer))
[20:36:34] --> Dominik has joined #uwadv
[20:37:06] --- Dominik is now known as Dominus
[20:37:45] <Dominus> hmm, it may seem that the SB Live! midi driver is causing the crash
[20:44:42] <wjp> it didn't crash with a different midi driver?
[20:45:38] <Dominus> in windows you can choose the midi device and with the default windows and the creative software midi it didn't crash
[20:46:27] <Dominus> but when I chose the "hardware midi device" (the one where you can chnge the soundfont) it crashed after 4 times closing and restarting
[20:46:57] <wjp> sounds like that may be it, then
[20:47:02] <wjp> did you have this problem with exult?
[20:47:09] <Dominus> never before
[20:47:28] <Dominus> though I could stress test with the 1.0 branch
[20:47:49] <Dominus> or even the 1.1.x as uwadv also uses sdl_mixer
[20:52:03] * wjp is having fun hacking away at the uwadv build mechanism, in the meantime
