04:52:16 <zzo38> For a computer game I have started to make up (a puzzle game) I have made this palette: http://zzo38computer.org/img_1C/palette.png http://sprunge.us/IQCH The top row is PC colours, the right column is some extras (the bottom-right represents transparency), and the rest is the Hero Mesh palette (with a few alterations).
04:52:27 <zzo38> Do you think it is good?
04:53:02 <shachaf> Is your puzzle game compatible with CGA?
04:54:05 <zzo38> This one isn't.
04:54:09 <shachaf> Cale: I got my Super Mega book in the mail.
04:54:15 <zzo38> (Although I have made other computer games that are.)
04:56:12 <oerjan> . o O ( a very big book, i presume )
04:58:57 <zzo38> (This new game is design to be similar to Hero Mesh, kind of, although many things which were I think mistakes or other problems in the design of Hero Mesh, that I can do them differently this time, in order to make it better and avoid some of the problems that Hero Mesh is have.)
04:59:18 <shachaf> Do you like Dangerous Dave?

05:10:27 <zzo38> How to save game?
05:11:29 <shachaf> Which game?
05:11:44 <zzo38> Dangerous Dave
05:16:50 <shachaf> I'm not sure you can save.
05:17:52 <zzo38> Does any version of DOSBOX support its own save state function?
05:18:39 <shachaf> I don't know.
05:31:22 <ais523> zzo38: I've heard rumours of a hacked version that did that but it was, IIRC, not publically released
05:31:38 <ais523> and wasn't really complete enough to handle more than one game, run on other people's computers, etc.
05:50:05 <shachaf> But there are other x86 virtual machines that support that.
05:50:09 <shachaf> And you can run DOSBOX inside them.
05:50:16 -!- sleffy has joined.
06:36:14 <\oren\> shachaf: would you not run freedos inside them directly?
06:37:10 <shachaf> You could do that too.
06:38:16 <zzo38> Assuming the other x86 virtual machine emulates any of the hardware you need, then I think it will work to just run FreeDOS directly (and might even work better in some cases)
06:39:40 <shachaf> I don't know why it'd emulate DOS-compatible hardware, though.
06:40:15 <zzo38> If it is emulating a PC, then it probably should emulate DOS-compatible hardware.
06:40:20 <shachaf> Gotta set your IRQs, man
06:40:49 <zzo38> (Otherwise it should hardly be called a PC)
06:40:50 <shachaf> Get that Sound Blaster Pro going

16:26:39 <wob_jonas> quintopia: that can't work. this is a big office building with people from lots of companies, and the toilets are shared among them and even with some guests. even if I could convince people in our company to follow those rules, I couldn't convince everyone else in the building to do that.
16:27:43 <quintopia> sounds horrible
16:27:45 <wob_jonas> zzo38: I ran most of the DOS games in bochs (although a few I've ran in dosbox because that old version of bochs couldn't handle the video card requirement or something). I think it has a snapshotting feature, but I never really tried. These days, you should try qemu instead if you want snapshots for old DOS games.
16:28:43 -!- grumble has joined.
16:28:58 <wob_jonas> zzo38: I have sucessfully snapshotted and restored the *disk* contents when the game is powered down, in fact the termbot (which connects IRC as a terminal to the DOS machine) can restore to a snapshot I made automatically.
16:29:08 <wob_jonas> s/game is/machine is/
16:29:46 <wob_jonas> quintopia: no, I like that system. but I also know that people's opinion differs in that, some people prefer to have the toilet in the office, which they do have in the other building.

17:51:21 <wob_jonas> Argh! Why does the label of shoelaces always give a length longer than the actual measured length of the lace?
17:52:18 <zzo38> Because it is in different units of measurement, maybe?
17:52:21 <wob_jonas> Do they measure them, like stretched with high force?
17:53:00 -!- boily has joined.
17:53:01 <wob_jonas> zzo38: the label explicitly says "cm"
17:53:26 <zzo38> wob_jonas: O, it already says the units. Yes, maybe with high force. But, then, why should they do that?
17:58:11 <wob_jonas> I mean, the shoelace is not even the right order of magnitude to make the obligatory joke about males mis-sizing objects so they can brag about their twelve-inch penis.
18:00:54 <wob_jonas> ok, this other pair of laces at least has the right size
18:01:05 <wob_jonas> well, the right size for what's written on the label
18:09:57 <wob_jonas> as opposed to the right size for my boots
18:13:12 <wob_jonas> Sadly the store can't have shoelaces in every combination of material, thickness and shape, color and width, because that would be a really large number of combinations, so I just had to buy one that's close to right.

19:19:58 <Phantom_Hoover> the one thing that always irked me was that my original goal of having real chess as a strict subset didn't quite work
19:20:18 <Phantom_Hoover> because you couldn't e.g move a bishop northeast with a piece to the north and a piece to the east
19:20:38 <Phantom_Hoover> you could easily solve that by shrinking the pieces in their squares a bit but that was inelegant enough not to satisfy me
19:21:08 <lynn> that seems to be what That Other Continous Chess does

20:45:10 <zzo38> I generally in TeX are not using the \loop command, which clobbers \next, but instead, can use macros that (if called \next, for example) might end with something like: \ifnum\xyzzy=42{\let\next}\fi\next in order to break the loop in case the condition is true.
