00:28.25Ryan123hello, i got a question ... is there a macro to "talk" with NPCs, not only targetting them?
00:28.47winkillernot sure :|
00:29.21Ryan123someone knows it sure?
00:29.55draculathere are commands to select chat/quest options yes
00:31.03Ryan123i'm searching for a commant to talk with a vendor, that the sell window opens
00:31.36draculawell... opening the chat window has to be done with a mouseclick
00:31.38winkillerwell, all the "auto turnin/skip gossip" addons requie you to select the guy first
00:31.41winkilleras in rightclick
00:31.56winkilleryeah, so I doubt it you can spam a macro near a vendor
00:32.17Ryan123what is that "auto turnin/skip gossip"?
00:32.42winkillerthere are some addons who let you skip the "click on sell" part
00:32.54winkilleror "hand in 5 alliance blood"
00:33.08Ryan123thank you
00:33.20winkillerthe addons are called "autoturnin" and "get to the point"
00:33.31winkilleryou could read their sources and maybe be enlightened
00:33.46winkilleralso there are addons to autosell all grey items
00:33.51winkillerwhen you open a vendor
00:34.11winkillerbut as I said, all require you to rightclick the vendor first
00:34.17winkillerso I guess that'son purpose
00:35.27Ryan123mhm kk, so through API commands i cant rightclick a vendor, that addons you talked about, is that realiseable that it works through them?
00:35.58winkillerI think not
00:36.08winkillerdepends on what you really wanna achieve
00:36.13winkillermaybe there's a way round
00:36.19winkillertry #wowuidev maybe
00:36.26Ryan123okay tyvm

01:43.01MasterWillanyone know how to get WoW working on Ubuntu using wine?
01:44.22MasterWillI was able to download WoW and get it (and its various patches) installed, but when I run it it hangs my machine
01:46.30winkillermine runs decently
01:46.47winkillerjust some gnome taskbar apps flicker "through"
01:46.57winkillerthink it highly depends on your hardware
01:47.14winkiller1-2 years ago it just worked out of the box with an old ubuntu here
01:47.23MasterWillhmm ... this is a brand new acer laptop
01:47.31MasterWilland a fresh ubuntu install
01:47.46MasterWillall the downloaders and patch progs work fine
01:47.57winkillercan't really help you there, as I didn't have to adjust anything
01:48.05winkillersorry :|
01:48.20MasterWillthat's ok
01:48.58MasterWillit's very frustrating that the trial and error method requires a reboot each time cause I can't get it to do anything else once it hangs
01:49.21MasterWillI've also gone through some of the wikis online, and none of the suggestions seem to be helping
01:49.44MasterWillI can't seem to tell if it's the video or audio that is causing the problem ...
01:50.12MasterWillthe audio seems to play fine, but the video is whacked out in the game's display window
01:50.50MasterWilldo you know if you are running it with d3d or opengl?

18:42.06kalleperssonHi there
18:42.33kalleperssonDoes anyone know how much time it -really- takes to upgrade from Trial to Full? Blizz's website states at most 72hrs
18:42.45kalleperssonBut it feels like that's for legal purposes
18:44.26g0urrayou could just buy an account from retail
18:44.49Sky2042_afkbut then he doesn't get 20 levels for free?...
18:44.50kalleperssonYes, but not online, rifht?
18:45.09kalleperssonI have a trial atm, but I want to upgrade and play. Now :-)
18:45.37kalleperssonand you can only buy retain from stores, right?
18:46.24kalleperssonThe only option seems to be to purchase that upgrade from the trial version
18:46.37Fisker-kallepersson my guess would be it would be activated the first thing on monday
18:46.49kalleperssonThat'd be boring
18:46.49Fisker-72 hours is mostly because they can't activate on weekends
18:47.38kalleperssonToo bad you can't just buy additional playtime online
18:47.43kalleperssonand continue the game
18:48.43kalleperssonThx for your help
18:48.51Fisker-Well the trial restrictions is partly withdrawn
18:48.57Fisker-You can level past level 20
18:49.01Fisker-But you can't chat
18:51.28Fisker-It apparently has something to do with how their billing is processed
18:51.51Fisker-And if they lift the trial restrictions immediately goldspammers would be able to gain access to WoW's chat features without actually paying
18:52.26Fisker-But the leveling mechanics are irrelevant in this sense, so they lift the leveling mechanics but keep the chat blocked

19:06.32*** join/#wowwiki KriLL3 (i=chatzill@unaffiliated/krill3)
19:06.38g0urramy bet is on that it's the wotlk beta client
19:06.45Fisker-It's not
19:07.09Fisker-Unless someone made a custom installer which just happens to be signed by Blizzard
19:07.51Fisker-anyways mxs
19:07.54Fisker-Blizzard is awesome
19:08.21Fisker-"No download for WotLK", "There will be a download", "OP here: Disregard that i suck cocks"
19:09.48mxscould also be a keylogger
19:09.53mxsgonna put it in a vmware first
19:10.07Fisker-Signed files can't be messed with
19:10.38Fisker-And no don't englighten me on the possibility that they somehow had their key etc.
19:11.25Sky2042_afkFisker-: :LOL
19:12.12Fisker-Though i think Microsoft did that once
19:12.40mxsFisker-: how do you KNOW they are signed though ?
19:12.43mxs's just an ISO
19:12.51mxsand yes, signed files can be messed with
19:13.02mxsit's probably TRIVIAL to make the blizzard updater code not check signatures
19:13.03Fisker-ISO's can be extracted
19:13.24Fisker-Anyways noone on TPB would go through that anyways
19:13.29Fisker-Easy enough to trick idiots without :3
19:13.51mxsyou are not making much sense :P
19:13.53Fisker-The good ol no-cd crack hunting
19:13.58mxsthe possible payoff is pretty damn good though
19:14.10Fisker-But they could just as well just make a setup.exe
19:14.13mxsif youget 1000 people to use a keylogged installer of wotlk, you just got a bunch of money
19:14.36Fisker-or like with the good old no-cd crack hunting they had a file called "runme.exe" or "crack.exe" or similar along with the .rar :D
19:14.39Fisker-fail = fail
19:15.20Fisker-Anyways i'll check it in a VM too!
19:15.27Fisker-If you can call my machine a VM
19:15.45Fisker-Should be down in a couple of minutes
19:16.30Fisker-and the good news is that you can actually use this client
19:16.38Fisker-without having a wotlk account
19:17.00mxsi.e. right now ?
19:17.15mxsok, let me know how it goes
19:17.27Fisker-Catched up with the swarm there
19:17.58Fisker-~epic fail bittorrent
19:17.58infobotbittorrent, you have failed in such a spectacular way that one thousand years from now people will tell their children stories about a failure so great that it eclipsed every success from that period of time. And you bittorrent, you are that epic failure.
19:18.46Fisker-gogo 4kB/s
19:19.50Fisker-That's kinda what sucks with Bittorrent :P

20:27.48ThraeAlthough the use of "they" here is non-canon.
20:28.16pcjtopics is the object
20:28.28pcjthe fact that there is an intermediary clause is of no consequence
