ForgeAusI heave
its a simulation game of some sort
Sho_Jucato: Molyneux is one of the more prominent Western designers
Jucatook... now I feel I've been living under a boulder for so long..
Sho_But I didn't like the game, fwiw ;)
ForgeAusI've never played it but it seemed like something to do with a 3D game something like populous but i think its animals instead of people or something?
Sho_ForgeAus: Yeah same genre as Populus basically
actionJucato never really liked RTS type of games... or sims...
Jucatonever really liked RTS type of games... or sims...
ForgeAusdid anyone ever like populous 3D?
Sho_I'm a big fan of the 4X genre of strategy games (Civilization, etc.)
ForgeAusI quite enjoyed the demo... tho they stole lots of elements (ie preists / prophets coverting units, although populous originally had something like)
I like Civilization, especially Alpha centauri
civ 3 is nice 2
but I don't sofar like Civ4 from what I've seen of it, which isn't much so I could be wrong
Sho_I like it a lot more than Civ3, actually
ForgeAusI'm looking at trying to get a civ3 complete edition
Sho_There's more bite to the gameplay, and the UIs is less clunky, and it's extensively moddable, so there's a lot of nice community content
ForgeAuswith the estras
JucatoSho_: would you know if there's a way to make kmplayer use KDE icons for the control buttons? (play, stop, etc?)
Sho_Jucato: I don't think so
Jucatoah ok... kmplayer would be almost perfect for me (better than kplayer probably) if not for those :P
(at least kmplayer can choose to use xine or mplayer)
Sho_Jucato: Not a big concern for me personally because Nuvola's player icons aren't so hot anyway
ForgeAuswow black and white had a sequel!
JucatoSho_: true... ugly things aren't they? hehehe
Sho_Jucato: I tend to stick to MPlayer
as far as backends go
JucatoSho_: yeah. just for those times that, for some unknown reason, mplayer won't be able to play...
btw, is it just me or does KPlayer's volume control actually controls the system volume?
Sho_Jucato: Never encountered a vid that wouldn't, but then Gentoo is fairly ... liberal when it comes to installing codecs other distros won't or are unable to touch
ForgeAusit even had an expansion pack
yeah mplayer seems kewl
works more in my browser than xine seems to
JucatoSho_: yeah. theoretically mplayer can play anything. sometimes I just encounter formats or streaming media that don't... and I can't remember them...
ForgeAusinteresting Jucato...
actionSho_ grumbles at his right rear speaker making problems
Sho_grumbles at his right rear speaker making problems
JucatoSho_: btw... kmplayer's progress bar doesn't work properly as well
Sho_Jucato: Works fine here with said Akademy vid
Jucatotrying mplayer itself
ForgeAuskubuntu's ok for codecs, it just needs non-free repos to find them
