[00:06] <mataniko> timofonic: It will get much more attention once a release happens
[00:06] <mataniko> which is soon
[00:06] <mataniko> also, it's a community project, if a community member is passionate about it, they can go talk about
[00:06] <mataniko> tweet, blog, chat, etc
[00:06] <-- borosky left irc:
[00:06] <mataniko> it shouldn't fall on dreammaster to do it

[00:28] <sluicebox> it's a fair point, that nick sets a high bar

[02:46] <dreammaster> timofonic: As matniko said, it'll get more exposure once it's officially released. And that won't be until I at least finish Frotz v6 support, since doing so has required some changes both to Frotz as well as the Glk backend. It's also why I haven't announced an official testing period yet
[02:47] <dreammaster> But in the interim other developers are welcome to contribute. md5 provided a preliminary conversion of the Alan2 Glk sub-engine from Gargoyle, so all the remaining sub-engines Gargoyle supports are still up for grabs :)
[02:49] <dreammaster> But I don't think any of the remaining really warrants a full GSOC project. I'm hoping even TADS & Hugo won't be as troublesome as Frotz

[08:34] <nipung> _sev: The HDB engine can decompress MPC files now. What should be my next step?
[08:41] <_sev> nipung: start writing your application?
[08:42] <mataniko> good morning
[08:43] <_sev> nipung: and you must follow our code formatting conventions. At this point there are discrepancies
[08:43] <nipung> _sev: It was mentioned on the ideas page that the original sources have been secured. Would it be possible to take a look at them?
[08:43] <_sev> nipung: not at this stage
[08:43] <nipung> _sev: I'll fix at the discrepancies.
[08:43] <_sev> I can answer your specific questions, though
[08:44] <_sev> basically, it is a set of Lua extensions
[08:46] <_sev> and to avoid those "unknown" fields, here is the structure for you
[08:46] <_sev> typedef struct
[08:46] <_sev> {
[08:46] <_sev> char filename[64]; // filename
[08:46] <_sev> long offset; // offset in MSD file of data
[08:46] <_sev> long length; // compressed length of data
[08:46] <_sev> long ulength; // uncompressed length
[08:46] <_sev> dataType type; // type of data
[08:46] <_sev> } msdEntry;
[08:46] <nipung> Got it.

[12:11] <timofonic> dreammaster: What major task related with "ScummGlk" would be at least good enough for an enough motivated and stubborn GSoC student? Or a series of efforts, whatever that would give a major improvement as the result gets merged.
[12:15] <timofonic> dreammaster: Are there a list of interpreters outside the Frotz/Glk ecosystem? What ones lack an engine?

[12:50] <mataniko> it's about 5 am for him, so unlikely to answer
[12:51] <mataniko> are you looking to apply to GSoC to do work on GLK or are you hoping for a student to come in and take it as a task?

[13:29] <stroggoff> So unifont is a cool idea and there is a "path" to build a bdf file a specific charset encoding -- although I had to edit the tools a bit because oh, boy... some of them are pretty basic
[13:30] <mataniko> is there Hebrew in there while you're at it?
[13:30] <stroggoff> Hm, probably. I wouldn't recongnize the glyphs off-hand, but it seems to have everything
[13:31] <stroggoff> Problem is that the vanilla glyphs look ugly.
[13:31] <mataniko> send me a link, i'll take a look
[13:31] <stroggoff> ok
[13:32] <stroggoff> http://unifoundry.com/pub/unifont/unifont-12.0.01/unifont-12.0.01.bmp
[13:33] <stroggoff> if you know the specific "page" for Hebrew in unicode, you can export only those glyphs in a bitmap
[13:34] <stroggoff> And so, there is a way to edit the font glyph by glyph to fix it to your liking and then "re-import" it to the unifont hex format and build the bdf
[13:35] <stroggoff> But even so, the specs of the glyph bounding boxes in the bdf are 16x16, so I'd need to resize for our 12p bdf fonts, unless I'm missing something.
[13:35] <stroggoff> And resizing... does not have pretty results
[13:39] <stroggoff> https://i.imgur.com/GAq4C9v.png
[13:39] <stroggoff> ^^ that is the bitmap for unicode block 0x0500 - 0x05ff
[13:40] <stroggoff> according to wikipedia, Hebrew should be from 0x0590 to 0x5ff
[13:40] <stroggoff> in there.
[13:41] <stroggoff> Anyway, an alternative plan would be to start with a Sans Sarif ttf font from Linux and use fontforge to explicitly draw (or copy) glyphs in a 12p bitmap that can then be export it to bdf. Soundforge supports this...
[13:42] <stroggoff> lol, not soundforge. FontForge: http://fontforge.github.io/en-US/
[13:47] <stroggoff> Would creating a merged font combining handcrafted glyphs (using glyphs from the Linux xfont FreeSans font as basis) and probably parts of the Latin Helvetica we already have for consistency be ok?
[13:47] <stroggoff> because that looks far better
