[17:47:39] --> tibbs has joined #xu4
[17:48:04] <tibbs> Just saw a commit about trying harder to find the zip file.
[17:48:19] <tibbs> I wonder if there's any provision for using the .exe file that's floating around as well.
[17:48:52] <tibbs> Since our list of valid mirrors shrunk quite a bit recently.
[17:49:08] <Dominus> hi
[17:49:29] <tibbs> Howdy.
[17:49:40] <Dominus> I don't know about an exe file floating around
[17:49:56] <tibbs> As far as I can tell, the exe file is just the same thing as the zip compressed as a self-extracting executable.
[17:50:00] <tibbs> OK, I'll look for it.
[17:50:14] <tibbs> As far as I know, it's one of two legally distributed sources for U4 at this time.
[17:50:15] <Dominus> and using that might depend on whether it is a zipped exe or a rar'ed exe
[17:50:28] <tibbs> unzip on my plain old linux machine deals with it.
[17:52:58] <tibbs> Crap, now I can't find it.
[17:53:12] <Dominus> :)
[17:56:42] <tibbs> Still can't find it, but I did turn up another site for the zip.
[17:57:54] <tibbs> That makes three, which is probably good for the foreseeable future.
[17:58:42] <Dominus> yes, I'm not so worried about people not finding u4
[18:02:23] <tibbs> BTW, this patch has been in Fedora since before I started maintaining the package: http://pkgs.fedoraproject.org/gitweb/?p=xu4.git;a=blob;f=xu4-zipfile.patch
[18:02:50] <tibbs> Not entirely sure if there's still any point in it.
[18:03:29] <Dominus> with the patch I just added to svn, probably not
[18:04:03] <Dominus> xu4 now checks whether the game is in the folder or not and allows different foldr names
[18:04:21] <tibbs> I'm happy to drop it.
[18:05:06] <tibbs> Yeah, it fails to apply on a fresh checkout, so I'll just get rid of it.
[18:09:40] <Dominus> I was about to write that it most likely wouldn't apply anymore :)
