00:13 <Lucifer_arma> it's a light cycle game
00:14 <Lucifer_arma> light cycle games are a genre all their own at this point
00:14  * noob7 chuckles
00:14 <Lucifer_arma> anybody play Wet Paint back in the day?
00:14 <noob7> back in what day?
00:14 <Lucifer_arma> 80s
00:14 <Lucifer_arma> it was a c-64 game
00:14 <noob7> not that I remember so
00:14 <Lucifer_arma> probably available on Apple comps too
00:15 <Lucifer_arma> you were a paint brush, and you had to paint the whole wall, but you couldn't paint over anything you'd already painted
00:15 <noob7> neat concept
00:16 <Lucifer_arma> wasted many hours on that very simple game :)
00:16 <noob7> oh hey, I am supposed to remind you about making the AFL cfg available
00:17 <Lucifer_arma> later on tonight, when I get home from work
00:17 <noob7> :p
00:17 <Lucifer_arma> ~10pm CDT
00:17 <noob7> can you maybe #m me the link to it then?
00:17 <Lucifer_arma> I just need to doublecheck that it has the recommendations made by the summer players
00:17 <noob7> ok
00:17 <Lucifer_arma> I could, but if you read the forums, you'll find it
00:18 <noob7> ok
00:18 <Lucifer_arma> if you want to get a jump on it, you could dig up the original config and go to the discussion thread and just make those changes directly
00:19 <noob7> I'm about to go to bed actually
00:19 <Lucifer_arma> sleeping is for sissies
00:19 <noob7> epsy asked me to host the Donkey server for him
00:19 <Lucifer_arma> ah.  for his AFL team?
00:19 <noob7> that'S why I'd need the cfg for
00:19 <noob7> yeah

00:20 <Lucifer_arma> ko.  I'm also thinking it should be an "official" recommendation that players use ed's fortress moviepack
00:20 <Lucifer_arma> we can't force them to, of course
00:22 <Flex_> Can I have a link to that please?
00:28 <Lucifer_arma> http://forums.armagetronad.net/viewtopic.php?p=191840
00:29 <noob7> god I hate sbnc... why do I have to create seperate users for each server I want to connect to?
00:29 <luke-jr> wtf is that
00:30 <noob7> shroudBNC
00:30 <Lucifer_arma> wow, I don't have kolourpaint installed
00:40 -!- P4|away is now known as P4
00:41 <luke-jr> noob7: kinda inherent in how a BNC works
00:49 <noob7> !t eng ger inherent
00:49 <noob7> #t eng ger inherent
00:49 <armabot> noob7: zugehörig
00:50 <noob7> well other BNCs are able to tunnel to more than one server right? maybe I am just making stuff up tho :D
00:59 <Gursikh> Hey guys, is it a known issue that armagetron sometimes randomly minimizes itself?
00:59 <noob7> if you press the "f" key :D
00:59 <Gursikh> no, no go from full screen to windowed, I mean fully minimized (to tray)
01:00 <Gursikh>  snot*
01:00 <Lucifer_arma> no, it's a known issue that when this happens, it's usually some external thing that armagetron gets blamed for
01:00 <Gursikh> grr, NOT*
01:01 <Lucifer_arma> not that I'm trying to deny a problem, just that in every case so far where this "bug" has been reported, it's always turned out to be something in the player's environment
01:01 <noob7> like a MSN or AIM message
01:01 <Lucifer_arma> most common is as noob7 says, people accidentally pressing the full-screen key
01:01 <Gursikh> I've experienced it on 2 different computers so far
01:01 <Lucifer_arma> there's another one, some IM programs cause you to jump to the desktop so you can see their window
01:01 <Gursikh> both ubuntu 7.04 linux
01:02 <Lucifer_arma> alt-tab could do it it, and you can hit that combination if you've actually bound alt to something
01:02 <Gursikh> the desktop ubuntu was running nothing else at all
01:02 <Gursikh> default everything
01:02 <Gursikh> except screen resolution
01:02 <Lucifer_arma> gnome?
01:02 <Gursikh> yes gnome
01:02 <Lucifer_arma> get a better DE :)
01:03 <Gursikh> on my tablet it's done it under xfce as well
01:03 <Lucifer_arma> both gtk-based environments
01:03 <Lucifer_arma> meaning the problem is probably somewhere in gtk
01:03 <Lucifer_arma> we've had several people report problems under gnome
01:03 <Lucifer_arma> but since we've never been able to replicate these problems, what can we do?
01:04 <Gursikh> I see, one of those :-(
01:04 <Lucifer_arma> if it makes you feel any better, I"m running the same version of ubuntu, except it's called "Kubuntu" on my machine :)
01:04 <Gursikh> I'll start saving logs, maybe something will come up
01:04 <Lucifer_arma> ko
01:04 <Lucifer_arma> recordings might help, but I doubt the information we actually want is in there
01:04 <Gursikh> I've run kde in the past, eventually came back to gnome and now beryl
01:05 <Lucifer_arma> eek.  lots of problems in beryl
01:05 <Gursikh> yeah, opengl fails with beryl
01:05 <Gursikh> I dont play under beryl >_>
01:05 <Lucifer_arma> heh, good :)
01:06 <Gursikh> usually play under xfce
01:06 <Lucifer_arma> see if there's a pattern
01:06 <Gursikh> haven't really noticed one, but I'll pay more attention
01:06 <Lucifer_arma> I used to have problems back in the day with the screensaver kicking in
01:07 <Gursikh> I'll also ask my friend who plays under wmii
01:07 <Lucifer_arma> in fact, there's a number of old posts ont he forums about others having *that* problem
01:07 <Gursikh> I dont use any screensaver
01:07 <Gursikh> on my tablet, it's ether on and working, or closed and suspended
01:07 <Lucifer_arma> well, let's say the route to disable the screensaver they took was to force an X11 event on the desktop that focuses it
01:08 <Lucifer_arma> *that* would create the problem you see, and wouldn't exist in KDE
01:08 <Gursikh> ah
01:08 <Lucifer_arma> get scorched3d and see how that does
01:08 <Gursikh> I could play under kde and see if the problem reappears
01:08 <Lucifer_arma> the easiest way to determine if it's arma's fault is to see if other gl games have the same problem
01:09 <Gursikh> well, tremulous doesn't
01:09 <Lucifer_arma> of course, if they don't have the same problem, that doesn't really prove anything, but it's fun to find out :)
01:09 <Gursikh> and glob2 doesn't either
01:09 <Lucifer_arma> glob2 doesn't use gl by default...
01:09 <Gursikh> I set it to
01:10  * Lucifer_arma hasn't noticed a difference in glob2's performance or appearance with gl enabled and isn't convinced it's actually working with gl
01:10 <Gursikh> me niether
01:10 <Lucifer_arma> but yeah, try under kde and see if it happens
01:10 <Lucifer_arma> assuming you have kde already
01:10 <Gursikh> uses like 3% less ram, is the only reason I do
01:10 <Gursikh> i do
01:11 <Lucifer_arma> you might make sure to update all libraries and stuff with synaptic
01:11 <Gursikh> i'm up-to-date
01:11 <Lucifer_arma> anyway, first try it in kde and see if it happens
01:11 <Lucifer_arma> if so, try to get the exact state of the machine when you did
01:11 <Lucifer_arma> then I'll update and ive it a shot
01:11 <Gursikh> right-o
01:11 <Lucifer_arma> problem is, i don't currently have 3d acceleration
01:12 <Lucifer_arma> but maybe next week, after the load of tests, I'll have a chance to get some 3d acceleration going :)

09:42 <Lucifer_arma> yay, now I'm running without an xorg.conf

09:48 <tramshed> im willing to bet there is a xorg.conf somewhere
09:48 <luke-jr> tramshed: bad idea
09:48 <tramshed> hah
09:48 -!- Lucifer_arma [n=satan@] has quit [Remote closed the connection]
09:49 <tramshed> how the fucks it gonna run without one
09:49 -!- Lucifer_arma [n=satan@] has joined #armagetron
09:51 <luke-jr> tramshed: the same way it makes one automatically with the -configure flag
09:51 <tramshed> he must have the most generic hardware on the planet
09:51 <luke-jr> single-head isn't that rare
09:51 <luke-jr> and really, dual-head is the only thing I've seen X have problems autodetecting
09:52 <tramshed> course, ive never actually tried, so im just talking shit
09:52 -!- Lucifer_arma [n=satan@] has quit [Remote closed the connection]
09:52 <tramshed> I know it wont autodetect my setup right
09:52 <luke-jr> why?
09:52 <tramshed> dualhead + 1 vid card
09:52 <tramshed> various monitors
09:52 <tramshed> various resolutions
09:52 <luke-jr> well, obviously it can't detect user preference :)
09:52 <tramshed> some crt, some flatpanel, some widescreen, some not
09:53 <luke-jr> I'll bet you would get *some* display out of it tho
09:53 <tramshed> it *might* get one monitor
09:53 <tramshed> but I dont think it would get the other two
09:53  * luke-jr notes most modern monitors report their capabilities to X
09:53 <tramshed> or the second vid card
09:53 <luke-jr> I think it would detect them at least
09:53 <tramshed> only one of these monitors would be considered modern
09:53 <luke-jr> it would probably make them all isolated X sessions
09:54 <tramshed> and xinerama fucks shit up anyways
09:54 <tramshed> I run them as separate sessions anyways
09:54 <luke-jr> isolated X sessions != Xinerama
09:54 <luke-jr> MergedFB worked half decent ;)
09:54 <tramshed>  I have issues with it not knowing where the fuck to put 3d acceled windows
09:55 <tramshed> thats why I keep them separate
09:55 <luke-jr> why do you care where?
09:55 <luke-jr> move them
09:55 <luke-jr> duh
09:55 <tramshed> its a pain to play a game spread across 3 monitors which all have diff resoultions
09:55 <tramshed> and it doesnt let you move a fullscreen window
09:55 <tramshed> thats why I keep em separate
09:55 <tramshed> so when I full screen it stays on one screen
09:56 <luke-jr> ...
09:56 <luke-jr> arma, at least, supports fullscreen on one of many displays
09:56 <tramshed> arma doesnt stay on one screen here
09:56 <tramshed> not with xinerama at least
09:56 <tramshed> it just plops right down in the middle of them all
09:56 <luke-jr> did you set its fullscreen resolution to only one of them?
09:56 <tramshed> yep
09:56 <tramshed> 1680x1050
09:56 <luke-jr> ...
09:57 <tramshed> and its half on the center screen, half on the left screen
09:57 <luke-jr> oh, I remember now
09:57 <tramshed> the left screen runs 1024x768
09:57 <luke-jr> to do that, it clones the rest
09:57 <luke-jr> err
09:57 <tramshed> middle runs 1680x1050
09:57 <luke-jr> that's messed up
09:57 <tramshed> and the right runs 800x600
09:57 <luke-jr> you have the Xinerama supported by your WM?
09:57 <tramshed> yeah
09:57 <tramshed> xfce4
09:57 <tramshed> none of my games listen to it for fuckall though
09:57 <luke-jr> I must say, xfce4's xinerama support sucks if it has any :p
09:58 <tramshed> well, im not gonna run bloatfest 3000 for it
09:58 <tramshed> ill just use separate screens
09:58 <luke-jr> :p
09:58 -!- Lucifer_arma [n=satan@] has joined #armagetron
09:58 <tramshed> I just added panels to each screen to run the apps on the screen I want
09:59 <tramshed> this way I can run 3 armas at once with hardware accel
09:59 <luke-jr> if your brain could handle it maybe
09:59 <tramshed> hah
09:59 <tramshed> eventually im gonna try to make them totally separate sessions
09:59 <tramshed> so 3 people can use my box at once
10:00 <luke-jr> easy enough
10:00 <tramshed> Ive never tried
10:00 <tramshed> so I dont know how easy it is
10:01 <tramshed> btw, did you want me to set up an ftp on my hoster?
10:01 <luke-jr> no
10:01 <luke-jr> why
10:01 <tramshed> you mentioned it on the forums
10:01 <luke-jr> ?
10:01 <tramshed> about needin more mirrors
10:01 <luke-jr> yeah
10:01 <luke-jr> but ftp sucks
10:01 <tramshed> ftp and http is all they will let me do
10:01 <luke-jr> they suck

22:19 <beta_usa> Does anyone know why CYCLE_WALLS_LENGTH is always reset at the beginning of a game ? I set it to 50 in settings_custom.cfg and in everytime.cfg, but each round, the game switches to 50 and then back again to 200.
22:24 <beta_usa> It's a ctf server (in case that matters)
