00:48:28 <FauxFaux> Looks like blitter fail to me.. wait, is that 9x?
00:48:56 <Aali> no thats opengfx
00:49:16 <Aali> just uninstall it and the original TTD graphics will come back
00:49:28 <Aali> assuming you had those before
00:49:57 <flikkflakk> it's strange, cause I just .rar'ed my ttd and sent it to him, I don't have any problems
00:50:40 <flikkflakk> he is using winxp, I'm on vista

01:14:31 <kd5pbo> Hey folks.
01:14:57 <kd5pbo> I managed to build the latest nightly, but I can't join a lan game.
01:15:22 <kd5pbo> I can't even find it.
01:15:57 <kd5pbo> The server is running the latest nightly.
01:16:38 <kd5pbo> The interesting part is where the version should go it says norev000
01:18:09 <Eddi|zuHause2> that means you did not use svn
01:18:40 *** Eddi|zuHause2 is now known as Eddi|zuHause
01:18:48 <kd5pbo> No, I did not.
01:18:50 <kd5pbo> Nor did he.
01:19:02 <kd5pbo> We're both using r15269
01:19:18 <Eddi|zuHause> ./configure --help
01:19:39 <Eddi|zuHause> tells what you can do to override the norev000
01:19:53 <kd5pbo> Would that cause me to not see his game?
01:20:06 <RS-SM> hmm
01:20:15 <kd5pbo> Using what I built from trunk, I could see it, but I had a version mismatch.
01:20:32 <RS-SM> anyway, odd question, are there any ngrfs with new boats? and what are you compling for?
01:21:10 <kd5pbo> No ngrfs, opensolaris
01:21:13 <Eddi|zuHause> yes, look on grfcrawler
01:21:41 <kd5pbo> Oh.
01:21:47 <kd5pbo> I'm not using any, I mean.

06:22:56 <dihedral> morning
06:25:02 <Rubidium> it's already morning?
06:26:36 <dihedral> yes
06:26:42 <dihedral> and i am already at work
06:26:51 <dihedral> have been for like half an hour already
06:29:44 *** HerzogDeXtEr has quit IRC
06:30:03 <goodger> dihedral: you have truly appalling work hours
06:31:18 <dihedral> goodger: i dont consider flexy-time to be very appalling!
06:31:47 <goodger> dihedral: very well
06:31:57 <dihedral> i choose to start early
06:32:00 <dihedral> then i get home early
06:32:04 <goodger> if my hours were specifically 7am onward, I'd go mad
06:32:27 <dihedral> they are not, i can pick whatever i like - i can choose every morning
06:32:41 <goodger> of course, as an employer, I'm planning to eliminate totally the idea of hours
06:32:41 <dihedral> i cannot be late :-D
06:33:00 <goodger> good for you
06:33:57 <goodger> you never told me what you actually do
06:34:01 <dihedral> goodger: do you have any employees at all? :-P
06:34:11 <dihedral> trainee to soft-dev
06:34:18 * Rubidium wonders what's the benefit of starting early, going home early, going to bed early etc.
06:34:21 <goodger> dihedral: no, hence "I'm planning to"
06:34:50 <dihedral> Rubidium, i get to spend more precious time with friends in the evening, which i cannot do if i come home late
06:34:55 <goodger> Rubidium: maximised exposure to sunlight
06:35:28 <Rubidium> but you have to go to bed earlier
06:35:45 <goodger> yeah, but you go to bed in the dark
06:35:46 <Rubidium> so the effective length of your evening's the same
06:35:57 <goodger> ah
06:36:04 <goodger> yes, this is true
06:36:25 <dihedral> Rubidium, the length of my evning is, yes - but what if my friends have to go to bed early too?
06:36:36 <dihedral> if their job is more time dependent than mine?
06:36:43 <goodger> do they?
06:36:46 <dihedral> yep
06:36:52 <goodger> why?
06:37:11 <dihedral> some of them work in a kitchen (commercially kinda)
06:37:23 <goodger> ah
06:38:05 <goodger> in that situation one can not successfully do things such as eliminating totally the idea of hours
06:38:11 <goodger> unfortunate

06:40:43 <dihedral> well, but i can plan my ours around the time of my friends hours, which will lengthen the time i can spend with them in an evening
06:43:16 <goodger> woo
06:43:53 <goodger> I currently do not have any of that type of friend
06:44:02 <goodger> I am going to make an effort to make some
06:44:52 * dihedral gives goodger a temporary hug
06:45:16 <goodger> you needn't draw attention to my patheticness ¬.¬
06:45:19 <goodger> thanks nonetheless
06:45:31 <Forked> I think you drew that yourself =p
06:45:46 <goodger> quiet, you
06:46:06 <goodger> damn all my friends for going to university

06:56:00 <goodger> well, I shall be moving to university in september
07:00:34 <dihedral> i hate university, sorry - rephrase: i get annoyed with the majority of students
07:00:41 <goodger> ah. yes
07:00:49 <dihedral> esp. the oxford and cambridge students
07:00:59 <dihedral> esp if they are like com-sci's
07:01:18 <goodger> I'm going to cambridge to study computer science, actually
07:01:26 <dihedral> and think they know a bunch - get to be rep's of the it side of things
07:01:31 <goodger> what's wrong with that?
07:02:03 <dihedral> i worked at an it-department in oxford of one of the colleges (actually a few more colleges)
07:02:21 <dihedral> some students are pretty full of themselves and have like no clue whatsoever
07:02:35 <goodger> I'm making it up. my dream of going to cambridge was smashed aged twelve
07:02:55 <dihedral> cambridge does nothing but produce a bunch of snobs
07:02:58 <goodger> yeah, the students there tend to be elitist bastards
07:03:12 <goodger> but it remains one of the world's best universities
07:03:18 <dihedral> there were 3 or 4 students i met in 2 years who really knew their stuff
07:03:24 <dihedral> 2 of which were chemists
07:03:39 <dihedral> (their it stuff i mean
07:03:40 <dihedral> )
07:04:36 <dihedral> 2 guys i met were reall idiots, trying to change how things in the IT office were done
07:04:52 <dihedral> pretty nasty
07:05:16 <goodger> what positions did they hold in said office?
07:05:30 <dihedral> one of them was computer-rep
07:06:08 <dihedral> the other was actually asked to do some stuff with us, but we quickly changed our mind about that
07:06:32 <goodger> I see
07:06:39 <dihedral> sometimes it was quite amusing....
07:07:53 <dihedral> like students were expected to live outside college for one year of their studies and said rep tried to get a room for the third year, trying to bargin his way into it, but saying he'd do another year of rep if the college gave him a room
07:08:05 <dihedral> very easy to decide :-D
07:08:06 <goodger> heh
07:08:09 <goodger> that's quite pathetic
07:08:13 <dihedral> yep
07:08:22 <dihedral> and he did not expect people saying no that quickly :-D
07:09:49 *** PhoenixtheII has quit IRC
07:09:51 <goodger> indeed
07:09:55 *** Phoenix_the_II has joined #openttd
07:09:56 <goodger> well
07:10:16 <goodger> people at cambridge may tend to have ideas above their station during their placement years
07:11:45 *** michi_cc has quit IRC
07:11:50 <goodger> I'm going to the university of kent, the number 40 university in the UK, to study at their reportedly overfunded business school
07:11:56 <dihedral> yes - but if they don't run it by the people in charge properly and in a decent manner they should not expect too much in response :-P
07:12:04 <goodger> true
07:12:30 <goodger> taking it all the way to PhD level if possible. unless I can go to a better university for my master's and phd having got a first at bachelor level
07:12:46 <goodger> but I'd like to stay in canterbury anyway, it's a lovely city
07:13:04 <goodger> and I promise not to alienate anyone on my placement year :)
07:13:10 <goodger> no. wait
07:13:16 <goodger> no placement year will be undertaken
07:13:58 <dihedral> :-P
07:14:19 <goodger> I shall opt out of the placement year to bring me back into line with my friends
07:14:41 <goodger> I don't particularly see the value in moving to yet another city for a year of low-wage menial work anyway
07:15:18 <dihedral> you gonna get a student loan?
07:15:36 <goodger> well, yeah, the interest rates are pathetically small
07:15:45 <goodger> it makes no financial sense _not_ to take the loan
07:17:59 *** michi_cc has joined #openttd
07:17:59 *** ChanServ sets mode: +v michi_cc
07:18:17 * Forked was just looking at what it would cost a month to get a loan for a house..
07:18:28 <Forked> we can't get a mansion :\
07:19:16 <Rubidium> that depends (hopefully) on the kind of mansion you want
07:19:38 <goodger> well, I'm planning to stay in university residence for my entire career there, by exploiting a loophole in the special-needs programme
07:20:29 <goodger> Forked: mortgages are what is known technically as "dirt cheap" atm, so I suggest you get yourself a fixed-rate within the next year :P
07:20:33 <Forked> actually we can get more than I thought .. so in other words we should be more than fine on the montly stuff and still afford the much needed beer :)
07:20:51 <goodger> unless you live in the US, where the recession will last a little while longer
07:20:53 <goodger> excellent

08:00:32 <petern> goodger, not quite
08:00:43 <petern> mortgages are dirt cheap IF you have a large deposit to put down
08:01:19 <petern> and even then you're still talking around 3 or 4%
08:01:56 <goodger> unpleasant
08:02:02 <goodger> well, I'm off to college
08:02:13 <petern> first time buyers get 6 to 7%
08:02:18 <goodger> good day, qualified people!
08:02:26 <petern> qualified? haha
08:02:28 *** grumbel has joined #openttd
08:02:46 <goodger> surely you have a degree?
08:02:55 <goodger> or at least A-levels
08:03:02 <goodger> in both cases you're more qualified than me
08:03:08 <goodger> byee

08:05:01 <petern> nope
08:11:36 <thingwath> mwaha, degree
08:12:51 <dihedral> :-P
08:12:51 * Forked orders one online
08:12:53 <thingwath> that reminds me that I should take a formal languages exam -- right now. :-(
08:12:56 <Forked> woho I have a degree
08:13:06 <Forked> from Madeup University
08:14:41 <Sacro> I have an advanced programming exam in just over an hour
08:14:42 <thingwath> and what about Masaryk university?
08:17:03 <Sacro> I am at Hull
08:17:19 <thingwath> oh, great, I still have one try left
08:17:24 <thingwath> no need to worry
08:17:30 <thingwath> *gulp*
08:19:50 <Sacro> hmm, need more caffiene
08:20:17 <thingwath> context free languages ftw.

09:54:06 <DASPRiD> dihedral, ;)
09:54:12 <planetmaker> hehe :)
09:55:48 <DASPRiD> dihedral, btw, a switch-statement doesnt work for >= cases ;)
09:56:16 <Rubidium> divide the number by 250 and you can make it a switch
09:56:28 <DASPRiD> uh?
09:56:49 <Rubidium> hmm.. or not
09:56:49 <DASPRiD> tell me how ;)
09:56:52 <DASPRiD> hehe
09:57:05 <Rubidium> it's still too early and I'm missing lines
09:57:05 <DASPRiD> well actually you could do:
09:57:25 <Roest> 500 cases and fall through would do it lol
09:57:31 <DASPRiD> switch (true) { case orderShipCostSub >= 250: /* code here */ break; /* etc etc */ }
09:58:12 <petern> you think that would work?
09:58:18 <DASPRiD> i know it works
09:58:22 *** Vikthor has joined #openttd
09:58:39 <DASPRiD> at least i'm 100% certain in php and 95% certain in C++
09:58:51 <Rubidium> switch (orderShipCost < 250 ? (orderShipCost >= 100) : ((orderShipCost / 250) + 1)) {
09:59:12 <DASPRiD> o.0
09:59:22 <petern> php allows that? crazy
09:59:30 <Roest> that works in c++?
09:59:38 * Roest reads c++ primer again
09:59:40 <DASPRiD> im pretty sure
09:59:43 <petern> Roest: DASPRiD's won't
09:59:52 <DASPRiD> petern, not in C++?
10:00:02 <petern> no
10:00:05 <DASPRiD> well good then that i was only 95% certain :)
10:00:08 <Roest> well i'm sure it doesnt, but he seems so confident
10:00:13 <DASPRiD> hmm
10:00:18 <DASPRiD> lets quickly test it :)
10:02:24 <Roest> yea no crazy compares at case labels
10:02:38 <DASPRiD> yeah
10:03:07 <Roest> and show me the php code before i believe that :)
10:03:30 <DASPRiD> ?
10:03:54 *** renea has quit IRC
10:04:07 <DASPRiD> <?php switch (true) { case (1 + 1 == 2): echo 'mkay...'; break; } ?>
10:05:05 <Roest> interesting, never saw that and did quite some extensive php programming a year ago
10:06:14 <DASPRiD> lol petern you were wrong
10:06:17 <DASPRiD> it even works in c++
10:06:30 <Rubidium> DASPRiD: your example works
10:06:41 <Rubidium> but *only* because it's evaluated at compile time
10:06:48 <DASPRiD>
10:06:54 <DASPRiD> Rubidium, sure?
10:07:07 <DASPRiD> lemme try with with variables
10:07:09 <Rubidium> DASPRiD: yes
10:07:18 <Rubidium> as it otherwise results in a nice: error: case label does not reduce to an integer constant
10:07:25 <Roest> hmm ok for php it's even documented
10:07:37 <DASPRiD> Roest, hehe
10:08:19 <DASPRiD> Rubidium, you are right
10:08:21 <DASPRiD> :(
10:08:34 *** elmex has quit IRC
10:09:34 <Roest> hmm actually it isnt documented but in a user comment
10:09:57 <Rubidium> Roest: it's written down, thus it's documented
10:10:11 <DASPRiD> Roest, tho the first user example is quite useless
10:10:22 <DASPRiD> redcore should hafve used fall-through cases
10:11:59 <worldemar> hmm... cases are integers
10:12:26 <DASPRiD> in C(++)
10:12:29 <dihedral> have a function that returnes a constant
10:12:51 <dihedral> :-P
10:12:53 <DASPRiD> dihedral, an if-struct to match a switch? :>
10:12:58 <dihedral> hihi
10:13:04 <petern>
10:13:10 <petern> ^ "nice" use of cases
10:13:21 <DASPRiD> lol o.0
10:13:36 <worldemar> >_<
10:14:05 <Roest> *to++ = *from++;
10:14:10 <Roest> gives me headaches
10:15:28 <petern> wonder if that works in php...
10:15:36 <petern> probably not
10:16:51 <DASPRiD> Roest, talking about headaches:
10:16:56 <dihedral> you could bit-shift it and then return the max bit set and do your switch case on that :-P
10:16:58 <DASPRiD> i was lazy in my holidays :)
10:17:04 <DASPRiD> petern, doesnt
10:17:23 <DASPRiD> Roest, that code works in c++ and php :)
10:17:53 <Roest> i'm happy enough my php times are over and at least for the next two years i wont have to touch it
10:18:25 <dihedral> hehe
10:18:34 <dihedral> i can fully understand you Roest
10:18:45 <dihedral> _having_ to dev in php is a pain (at least for me)
10:18:49 <DASPRiD> dihedral, you don't like the code? :p
10:18:53 <DASPRiD> (the pasted one)
10:18:54 <dihedral> however, being able to if i want to is ok
10:19:06 *** Mortal has quit IRC
10:19:44 <petern> "trick" code like that isn't very useful...
10:20:03 <DASPRiD> petern, there s no real sense behind such code
10:20:14 <Roest> my last php job was a employee and project management thing and to top that i had to run in IE6
10:20:16 <DASPRiD> there is code like that btw which runs in 8 different languages
10:20:23 <Roest> it*
10:20:35 <DASPRiD> Roest, php has absolutely nothing to do with IE6 or any other browser :)
10:20:40 <DASPRiD> that is HTML/CSS/JS
10:21:28 <Roest> of course though i'm sure u know what i mean
10:21:30 <petern> php being short for "personal home page"
10:21:32 <petern> originally

10:44:30 <dihedral> thanks a bunch :-P
10:44:59 <DASPRiD> ?
10:46:13 <dihedral> i know the meaning of the word!
10:46:23 <DASPRiD> ah good :x
10:46:47 <DASPRiD> so you are a polygon?
10:47:35 * worldemar searches for vertexes in dihedral
10:48:07 <dihedral> ...
10:48:21 <DASPRiD> i bet you'll find lot's of vertex collisions
10:48:58 <dihedral> dihedral angle is what describes the angle most commonly between the wings on planes (the angle between surfaces)
10:49:28 <dihedral> military jets have a negative dihedral angle, which is called an 'anhedral' angle
10:50:07 *** DASPRiD is now known as anhedral
10:50:16 *** anhedral is now known as DASPRiD
10:50:24 <dihedral> just dont get on my nerves DASPRiD
10:50:45 <DASPRiD> ;)
10:51:57 <worldemar> dihedral: didn't knew about angle on wings
10:52:32 <dihedral>
10:52:44 <dihedral> adds stability to the aircraft
10:52:48 <dihedral> a 'self' stability
10:52:55 <dihedral> passenger planes always have a dihedral angle
10:53:10 <dihedral> makes the aircraft less responsive, but very stable
10:53:22 <dihedral> anhedral angles are very responsive, however very unstable
10:53:49 <dihedral> hence the f14 requires the bord computer(s) to jitter the flaps constantly to stabalise the aircraft
10:54:19 <dihedral> no pilot could fly that thing if the responsible computers fail
10:54:58 <edeca> Same as the eurofighter then.
10:55:30 <dihedral> yes, and those planes are very very responsive
10:55:38 <dihedral> can make quick sharp turns also
10:56:22 <edeca> If I remember right, the eurofighter will actually ignore any input from the pilot which would make it unstable
10:56:24 <petern> the price of maneuverability
10:56:44 <dihedral> and those bord computers are crazy, as they have to not just do the calculations to stabalise the aircraft with jittering the flaps, they also have to accept the pilots stick-action into that, to stear the aircraft as controlled by the pilot
10:57:43 <edeca> Heh, I wouldn't trust the eurofighter. A guy I went to uni with who practically failed electronics got a job soldering together circuit boards for it ;)
10:57:44 * petern sighs
10:57:55 * edeca thanks goodness for safety checks
10:58:02 <edeca> petern: Sighs? :(
10:58:15 <petern> failing electronics at university is a totally different kettle of fish to soldering
10:58:25 <dihedral> aye
10:58:38 <edeca> petern: Well, soldering was about as far as our introductory electronics went.
10:58:50 <petern> odd
10:58:58 <edeca> They gave you a board, 6 components and a pre-compiled program to flash onto the MCU
10:59:07 <petern> introductory electronics starts with theory
10:59:11 <petern> not soldering
10:59:41 <petern> things like what a resistor does
10:59:41 <edeca> Well it was a common first year. I studied networking, we did very basic electronics (what is a resistor), very basic FPGA stuff, very basic microcontroller stuff
11:00:03 <edeca> To the point that most people didn't ever progress to working out what a microcontroller did
11:00:09 <petern> P=VI, etc
11:00:34 <petern> maybe studies really are shit these days
11:00:53 <edeca> Heh. We did it in 2 halves, the theory (few hours a week with an exam) and practical (one hour every few weeks if I remember right)
11:00:55 <petern> i suppose learning about computers is just learning how to use ms word, these days...
11:01:08 <edeca> And it was basically nothing more than a maplin flashing light kit :)
11:01:24 <edeca> But hell, you get out of it what you put in. I spent a few weeks building a micro board to play with
11:01:28 <Roest> i studied comp science and we didnt learn about computers
11:01:36 <edeca> You can't expect them to teach you *everything*
11:02:46 <edeca> Most people just wanted to be spoon fed a CCNA because they thought it was "cool"
11:02:57 <dihedral> lol
11:02:59 <dihedral> loosers
11:03:17 <DASPRiD> :(
11:03:26 <petern> Roest: what did you learn?
11:03:43 <edeca> petern: What did *you* study? :)
11:03:55 <petern> electronics engineering
11:04:07 <dihedral> are you implying, that you studied but did not learn anything, edeca? :-P
11:04:09 <Forked> CCNA makes you the coffee boy
11:04:21 <edeca> Forked: Yeah heh.
11:04:43 <dihedral> MSCE allows you to clean the toilets... ah - no! they just re-flush until it's clean and waste a bunch of water!
11:04:43 <edeca> dihedral: Nah, I'm implying that passing all my exams was important, but all the other stuff I learned was probably *more* important
11:04:53 <petern> incidentally, i failed it :p
11:04:58 <edeca> dihedral: And all that stuff wasn't spoon fed to me

11:56:22 *** worldemar has quit IRC
11:58:18 <Elukka> hmm... has the list of 32bpp sprites that are done/claimed/not done disappeared off the wiki?
11:58:39 <Elukka> ...nevermind
12:03:43 <petern> you can produce whatever you like
12:04:47 <petern> nobody seems to quite be capable of creating a complete set
12:04:55 <petern> or merging what there is into one set
12:04:59 <Elukka> i doubt i'll be capable of making one workable sprite
12:07:22 <Elukka> i wonder if someone has made a better obj or whatever exporter for sketchup than the one i have...
12:08:08 <petern> it can export to png
12:08:09 <petern> but
12:08:14 <petern> that's not much use
12:11:06 *** worldemar has joined #openttd
12:11:28 <Elukka> i can export it to kerkythea for rendering, but it could be hard to get the render to the specs defined
12:15:33 <Elukka> i seem to remember some repository of materials for use as textures...

12:34:30 <edeca> My train station looks a bit like four concrete blocks next to a road :)

13:54:44 *** HerzogDeXtEr has quit IRC
13:57:29 <Elukka> ow
13:57:41 <Elukka> those half tile passenger wagons look ugly on modern trains
13:57:49 <Elukka> somehow its more noticeable with the 32bpp graphics
13:57:58 <petern> it's not
13:58:14 <petern> it's noticable when people try to draw them zoomed in
13:59:32 * Sacro is watching benders game in 1080p with dutch subtitles
13:59:44 <Elukka> i just think it looks ugly when a HST or something has coaches half its length
14:00:25 <Elukka> hopefully someone will make a trainset with longer modern wagons
14:00:31 <Elukka> that's something far beyond my skills
14:00:34 <petern> unlikely
14:00:37 <petern> the game engine does not support it
14:01:42 <DASPRiD> talking bout 1080p, does openttd support 2560x1600 resolution?
14:01:45 <Elukka> wait
14:01:49 <Elukka> i could swear some at least look longer
14:01:56 *** einKarl has joined #openttd
14:02:14 <petern> DASPRiD: yes, but only in nightlies, not 0.6.3
14:02:24 <DASPRiD> ah, at least good to know :)
14:02:27 <glx> 0.6.3 can too if you recompile it
14:02:32 <petern> oh, true
14:02:36 <petern> then it's 0.6.3M? hehe
14:02:49 <DASPRiD> what's the highest resolution pre-0.6.3?
14:03:18 <Rubidium> 2048x1536 irc
14:03:26 <Sacro> DASPRiD: that's not HD :p
14:03:41 <petern> Elukka: there are no "non-zoom" 32bpp vehicles on the wiki, afaics
14:03:43 <DASPRiD> Sacro, no, its not high definition, its higher definition ;P
14:03:55 <Elukka> the modern wagons in us set look as long as the locomotives
14:04:00 *** UFO64 has joined #openttd
14:04:04 <Rubidium> hmm.. no 'only' 2048x1200
14:04:25 <petern> well
14:04:40 <petern> wagons & locomotives were always the same length in the original graphics, so that's nothing new
14:04:45 <Elukka> are the locomotives shorter or something?
14:04:46 <Elukka> oh
14:04:53 <DASPRiD> Rubidium, not x1280?
14:04:57 <DASPRiD> cause then it would be 16:10
14:05:10 <Elukka> so have they made the locomotives longer with the 32bpp graphics?
14:05:18 <petern> no
14:05:27 <Elukka> ok... why do they look a lot shorter?
14:05:34 <petern> some artists might have drawn them longer, but they won't work in game
14:06:50 <davis-> 32bpp is the stuff with the extra zoom level , right?
14:06:55 <petern> no
14:07:00 <davis-> meh
14:07:06 <petern> *sigh*
14:07:11 <davis-> haha excuse me
14:07:13 <Elukka> a lot of 32bpp seems to support it
14:07:20 <Elukka> but 32bpp does not mean the same thing as extra zoom
14:07:21 <petern> when will people learn that the only difference between 8bpp and 32bpp is colour depth...
14:07:37 <DASPRiD> petern, the average one? never ;)
14:07:37 <davis-> "[32bpp] Extra zoom levels, Updated V9 r15178"
14:07:44 <davis-> mistaken it cause of that
14:07:49 *** mikl has quit IRC
14:08:12 <glx> well extra zoom level requires 32bpp blitter
14:08:15 <glx> that's all
14:08:46 <petern> yeah, that's one way of ensuring it'll never get added :D
14:08:58 <Elukka> what is?
14:09:38 <davis-> ^^
14:09:44 <glx> and 32bpp sprites drawn for this patch don't work in trunk, which is a shame
14:10:04 <glx> (because it changed filename format)
14:10:41 <davis-> maybe there'll be some solution , time will tell .. i guess
14:10:47 <Elukka> aww
14:10:56 <Elukka> why not have the extra zoom levels patch in trunk?
14:11:05 <glx> not needed
14:11:30 <Elukka> being able to zoom in really shows the detail
14:12:22 <davis-> not with pixel graphics :p
14:12:41 <Elukka> so have an on/off switch like with every other patch
14:15:05 *** UFO64 has quit IRC

16:55:35 <Rubidium> lets plant a coal powered power plant in angelo's home town and see if it'll grow
16:56:17 <angelo> if it didn't have electricity in the first place, it would grow!
16:56:43 <glx> let's implement a realistic effect on town's growth for power plants
16:57:02 <FauxFaux> I'd much rather use the power to run my trains.
16:57:06 <angelo> yes
16:57:09 <angelo> 1 coal = 1 person
16:57:22 <Rubidium> before 1950 increase, after 1950 no new houses within a 5 km radius?
16:57:27 <glx> 1 coal = 1 person less :)
16:57:34 <angelo> yeah that's after 1950
16:57:57 <Rubidium> where a tile is 12,5 meter
16:58:01 <angelo> they won't want power plants

19:26:42 <Zuu> Hello, is there someone who has an opinion about widget focus behaviour in OpenTTD. Currently it doesn't really exist. But I have written a patch ( ) that adds widget focus and use it to send key input to focused edit box or else listen for hotkeys as usual. I am interested in opinions about the behavior. What widgets should be able to receive focus?
19:28:21 <Zuu> If an edit box is focused and I click on a button, should the button receive focus then? (so that you can use hotkeys instead of everything you type goes into the edit box) Or should only focus of edit boxes be de-activated when you click somwehere where there is no button or other widget?
19:39:58 *** Lakie has joined #openttd
19:41:08 *** |Jeroen| has quit IRC
19:51:13 <Belugas> i guess it should behave exactly as on a regular OS
19:52:04 <Zuu> And in a regular OS you can't continue type after you pressed a button. At least that is my observation.
19:52:30 <Zuu> Though Rubidium told me that my patch acted strange for acting like that. :-)
19:54:38 <Belugas> so yes, typing on a box and clikcing on a button means the button (if not disbled) should receive focus
19:54:46 <Belugas> mmh... lag on answering :S
19:55:14 * Belugas has not tested said patch, but still watches over
19:55:52 <Belugas> in fact, it showed me a gui with still some hard coded wideget numbersw ^)^
19:56:00 <Belugas> spent lunch time on it
19:56:09 <Zuu> I might have forgot the disabled part of it (I have not tested that case or looked into the code what happens in that case). But else it works like you just said.
19:56:18 <Zuu> Yea, I saw your commit on that. :)
19:56:41 <Zuu> And have adopted my patch to use the constants you introduced.
19:57:02 *** tom0004 has joined #openttd
19:58:41 <Belugas> soo... maybe it's just a matter of having eevryone's mind set onthe behaviour
19:59:44 *** mortal` has joined #openttd
20:00:04 <frosch123> [20:54] <Belugas> i guess it should behave exactly as on a regular OS <- so like the traditional way of focusing the element under the mousepointer?
20:00:44 <Belugas> i guess it would be defined as it, wouldn't it?
20:01:44 <frosch123> well there is also the less traditional way, to focus it by clicking, and not unfocusing it by moving the mouse somewhere else
20:02:11 *** SHRIKEE has joined #openttd
20:03:35 <Belugas> right...
20:03:42 <Belugas> indeed
20:04:21 <Belugas> maybe there is a distinction to make over "HotTracking" and "Focusing"
20:04:45 *** Tim-itry has quit IRC
20:05:33 <Aali> like every OS out there you should probably add an option to disable/enable mouse focus (focus follows mouse pointer)
20:05:51 *** mortal has quit IRC
20:06:04 <Prof_Frink> Aali: On some OSes that option is well hidden.
20:06:10 <Zuu> frosch123: I know of focus follow mouse, when it comes to focused window. (Which I use myself) but did your traditional way also include focusing of widgets inside a window by hovering over them?
20:06:37 <Aali> Prof_Frink: but it's there
20:06:43 * Belugas reads it as hot tracking
20:07:17 <Zuu> And too bad many windows applications, including visual studio is quite broken when it comes to focus follow mouse.
20:07:22 <frosch123> Zuu: yes, there is also that hard way, where you have to place the mouse exactly where you are typing, so you cannot read it anymore :)
20:08:06 <Aali> yeah, widget focus should not follow the mouse pointer
20:08:31 <Aali> windows should remember which widget had focus even when they lose focus though
20:09:26 <Zuu> Aali: They do :)
20:09:40 <Aali> good stuff
20:09:41 <Zuu> As each window has a focused_widget variable.
20:10:05 <Elukka> prof frink: i'm reading your lines in my head in frinks voice :/
20:10:13 <Zuu> And the title bar is imune against widget focus. So you can select a window by clicking on its title bar and the old focused widget will get global focus.
