[14:27:49] <eAi> hey
[14:27:50] <eAi> you there?
[14:27:53] <Towncivilian> yes
[14:27:55] <eAi> ok
[14:28:01] <eAi> I'm literally off on holiday in an hour
[14:28:06] <eAi> but I've just got 0.5 compiling here
[14:28:09] <Towncivilian> awesome :)
[14:28:11] <eAi> client anyway
[14:28:26] <eAi> which was a bit of a bitch as compilers seem to have improved somewhat in the last 10 years!
[14:28:45] <eAi> 0.5 was compiled originally with visual studio 6 which came out in 1997
[14:28:51] <Towncivilian> quite a jump there
[14:28:57] <eAi> indeed
[14:29:07] <eAi> it found one bug anyway
[14:29:20] <eAi> something to do with url parsing
[14:29:24] <eAi> not very important
[14:29:29] <Towncivilian> whatever, a bug is a bug i guess
[14:29:45] <eAi> anyway, the welcome message is broken
[14:29:48] <eAi> which we could easily fix
[14:29:58] <eAi> by just uploading the file again :)
[14:30:06] <Towncivilian> yeah it's just a 404 right now
[14:31:50] <eAi> I found some installer stuff too
[14:32:03] <Towncivilian> the nullsoft script thing?
[14:32:16] <eAi> yes
[14:32:53] <Towncivilian> that'll be useful. do you think we could get a release by the 2nd (mta 0.1's 7th birthday) or is that too optimistic?
[14:33:49] <eAi> I'm not sure
[14:33:53] <eAi> I'm on holiday till Sunday
[14:34:07] <eAi> I may have a bit of time when I get back, but not a massive amount
[14:34:24] <eAi> well, I can make a bit of time early next week, but the second might be pushing it
[14:34:30] <Towncivilian> okay, no big deal
[14:35:02] <eAi> it'd be nice I agree!
[14:35:06] <eAi> Installer-2005-01-27_16-27-eAi
[14:35:31] <eAi> MTAClient
[14:35:54] <Towncivilian> what's the mtaclient for?
[14:35:56] <Towncivilian> i can't run it
[14:36:12] <eAi> runs here
[14:36:15] <eAi> that's the one I just built
[14:36:23] <eAi> what's wrong with it?
[14:36:30] <Towncivilian> [Window Title]
[14:36:30] <Towncivilian> C:\Users\Matt Wolfe\Desktop\MTAClient.exe
[14:36:30] <Towncivilian> [Content]
[14:36:30] <Towncivilian> C:\Users\Matt Wolfe\Desktop\MTAClient.exe
[14:36:30] <Towncivilian> The application has failed to start because its side-by-side configuration is incorrect. Please see the application event log or use the command-line sxstrace.exe tool for more detail.
[14:36:30] <Towncivilian> [OK]
[14:37:22] <eAi> what os?
[14:37:25] <Towncivilian> win7 x64
[14:38:08] <eAi> I'm on win7 x86...
[14:38:14] <eAi> maybe you're missing the redistributable
[14:38:17] <eAi> but probably not
[14:38:23] <Towncivilian> i'll try running it in a XP VM
[14:38:23] <eAi> if you've run 1.0.x on that machine
[14:38:31] <Towncivilian> yeah 1.0.4 runs
[14:40:41] <Towncivilian> does not work on XP x86 either
[14:40:51] <eAi> same error?
[14:40:58] <Towncivilian> app failed to start because app config is incorrect, reinstalling may fix problem
[14:43:48] <eAi> download it again
[14:44:10] <Towncivilian> launches now on w7 x64
[14:44:26] <eAi> ok, that's a release version
[14:44:33] <eAi> you're probably missing the debug visual studio runtime
[14:44:44] <eAi> that's fine then
[14:45:18] <Towncivilian> okay
[14:47:44] <eAi> this is genuinely some of the worst code I've seen
[14:48:04] <Towncivilian> haha, that's experimental software for you
[14:48:33] <Towncivilian> brb 5 min, eating
[14:48:38] <eAi> ok
[14:54:14] <eAi> mtavc_dll is there now
[14:56:28] <Towncivilian> back
[14:57:02] <eAi> looks like the healthbar drawing code had a bug
[14:57:04] <eAi> or maybe not
[14:57:09] <eAi> it may have flukily worked
[14:57:15] <eAi> had the same variable defined twice
[14:57:18] <Towncivilian> blame slush :P
[14:57:49] <eAi> for(int i = 0; i < 32; i++) { ... int i = 0; for(; i < health/10; i++) {...}}
[14:57:55] <eAi> certainly not valid now
[14:57:59] <eAi> may have worked then
[14:58:11] <Towncivilian> in the days of yore perhaps
[14:59:48] <eAi> mta3_dll is there now
[14:59:50] <eAi> anyway
[14:59:55] <eAi> these should all be identical
[15:00:01] <eAi> but if you can test them it'd be good
[15:00:10] <Towncivilian> i can't get mtaclient to connect
[15:00:26] <Towncivilian> says "connecting..." and does nothing (but responds to clicks)
[15:00:38] <Towncivilian> tried 0.5 and 0.5.1 servers
[15:00:48] <eAi> well, that's a fairly major issue!
[15:00:53] <Towncivilian> i'd say so, yes
[15:01:14] <Towncivilian> when IJs recompiled the client a few years ago for me it got ingame, but not past the loading screen completely
[15:01:17] <eAi> what's an IP?
[15:01:35] <Towncivilian>
[15:02:06] <Towncivilian> also pressing on "servers" causes a crash
[15:03:19] <eAi> so I see
[15:03:25] <eAi> I'll have to look at this when I get back from holiday
[15:03:29] <Towncivilian> no problem
[15:03:32] <eAi> I've a train to catch in 27 minutes
[15:03:48] <Towncivilian> alright, thanks
[15:03:55] <eAi> I probably won't be able to look till Monday evening
[15:04:03] <eAi> send me a mail on monday to remind me
[15:04:08] <Towncivilian> [email protected]?
[15:04:11] <eAi> yep
[15:04:13] <Towncivilian> alright, will do
[15:04:16] <Towncivilian> have a safe trip
[15:04:21] <eAi> thanks!
