00:11:40 <CIA-2> OpenTTD: smatz * r21874 /trunk/src/train_cmd.cpp: -Fix: when a single-vehicle train was reversed while on a slope, its GOINGUP/DOWN weren't swapped
00:21:11 *** DDR has quit IRC
00:23:57 *** supermop has quit IRC
00:26:42 <Eddi|zuHause> i have problems calling single vehicles "train"
00:27:30 <SmatZ> true
00:28:24 <Eddi|zuHause> in german terminology, a "zug" must consist of at least two vehicles
00:34:28 <Eddi|zuHause> (strangely, though, it's also called "zug" when it's actually pushed)
00:35:03 <SmatZ> :-)
00:35:15 <SmatZ> "zug" means "pull"?
00:35:33 <SmatZ> or "zu zuggen" or whatever it could be :)
00:35:34 <Eddi|zuHause> yes, amongst other things ;)
00:35:53 <Eddi|zuHause> comes from "ziehen" ;)
00:36:10 *** Devroush has quit IRC
00:36:24 <SmatZ> oh right :)
00:36:56 <Eddi|zuHause> Zehn zahme Ziegen zogen zehn Zentner Zucker zum zeitzer Zug
00:37:25 <SmatZ> all those words are derived from ziehen?
00:37:37 <Eddi|zuHause> no ;=
00:37:41 <SmatZ> "Zucker" like "exctracted from som...
00:37:43 <SmatZ> ok :)
00:37:50 <Eddi|zuHause> it's a tongue twister ;)
00:38:05 <SmatZ> I understand only a few words from that :(
00:40:23 <Eddi|zuHause> well, it's not that uncommon words... "Zentner" is a unit of weight (100 pounds, i.e. 50 kilo)
00:40:58 <Eddi|zuHause> (derived from "Cent" meaning 100 in many languages)
00:41:22 <Eddi|zuHause> and Zeitz is a city, known for its sugar
00:42:54 <Eddi|zuHause> "Ziege" is a goat, and "Zucker" of course is sugar
00:44:05 <SmatZ> ok... "ten taimed goats pull 1 tonne of sugar to Zeitz's train"
00:44:24 <SmatZ> first problem - translating from german to czech ; second problem - translating from czech to english :)
00:44:48 <Eddi|zuHause> something like that
00:45:09 <Eddi|zuHause> only it's half a tonne, in my calculation ;)
00:45:28 <SmatZ> right, I overlooked that "pounds, i.e. 50 " part :)
00:45:33 <Eddi|zuHause> one "zentner" is the typical unit of weight that a grown man can carry with this hands
00:45:47 <SmatZ> I am not sure I could carry that
00:45:50 <Eddi|zuHause> *his
00:45:55 <SmatZ> even if I could... I wouldn't want to
00:46:13 <SmatZ> maybe on my back
00:46:47 <Eddi|zuHause> well, this kind of weight you typically lift on your back
00:47:05 <__ln__> even relatively short females weigh 50 kg
00:47:16 <SmatZ> :)
00:49:18 * SmatZ prefers grown women
00:49:40 <DJNekkid> bbw or tall ones? :P
00:49:54 <DJNekkid> *ebil*
00:49:56 <SmatZ> :D
00:50:15 <Eddi|zuHause> i've seen you, you aren't THAT tall either...
00:50:35 <DJNekkid> me?
00:50:42 <SmatZ> depends how you define bbw, but I would have problems with woman taller than me :)
00:50:45 <Eddi|zuHause> no, SmatZ.
00:50:48 <SmatZ> I got 176cm
00:51:00 <DJNekkid> 186here...
00:51:15 <DJNekkid> thats ... 6'1 i think
00:51:16 <Eddi|zuHause> i have around 193cm
00:51:18 <SmatZ> :)
00:51:28 <DJNekkid> if there are any of thoose wierd imperial guys around :P
00:51:44 <Eddi|zuHause> those are clearly a minority :p
00:51:46 <SmatZ> :)
00:52:30 <DJNekkid> dont you just hate it btw, that you are REALLY REALLY tierd at 7 or 8, and when you go to bed at midnight no way you can get to sleep
00:53:06 <Eddi|zuHause> yes, but i have stopped going to bed at midnight.
00:53:49 <SmatZ> I know that feeling, but I am home nowadays, so I wake up at like 11
00:55:08 <DJNekkid> im on sickleave as well...
00:55:26 <DJNekkid> but i would like to get something close to a normal day rythm back
00:56:09 *** Chruker has quit IRC
01:02:44 <__ln__> a day should be standardized to be 25 hours. i'd be happy about that.
01:03:10 <DJNekkid> nah ... 40, with 10 days per week :)
01:03:23 <SmatZ> :)
01:03:25 <DJNekkid> with the normal 8hour/5 day work per week :P
01:04:09 <SmatZ> in last two years, it wasn't unusual people worked only 4 days a week (because of the "crisis")
01:04:23 <SmatZ> but also for only 4/5 of normal wage
01:04:40 <__ln__> 18 hours of wake time and 12 hours of sleep is only 30 hours... what would you do with the remaining 10?
01:05:07 <DJNekkid> what i usually do .. zombie in front of the computer and/or TV :P
01:05:11 <SmatZ> :-)
01:05:35 <SmatZ> have "sex" with girls on my computer screen
01:05:48 *** KenjiE20 has quit IRC
01:06:25 <DJNekkid> i have my wife for that...
01:06:27 <__ln__> if a day was 25 hours, 4 days would comfortably be a centi-hour
01:07:20 <SmatZ> reminds me of :)
01:07:44 <SmatZ> yeah, I also wanted to change the world, so it has 10 days a week, 3 of which would be weekend
01:07:50 <SmatZ> @calc 3/10
01:07:50 <DorpsGek> SmatZ: 0.3
01:07:52 <SmatZ> @calc 5/7
01:07:52 <DorpsGek> SmatZ: 0.714285714286
01:07:56 <SmatZ> err
01:08:11 <__ln__> @calc 2/7
01:08:11 <DorpsGek> __ln__: 0.285714285714
01:08:26 <FauxFaux> e^__ln__*0.285714285714
01:08:31 <SmatZ> 0,70 and 0,71, the ratio of work days and weekend would not change much
01:08:33 <SmatZ> :)
01:08:53 <SmatZ> also, 10 months a year
01:09:02 <SmatZ> each with 36 or 37 days
01:09:11 <SmatZ> without that silly February with 28 days...
01:09:17 <FauxFaux> I think you should concentrate on ridding us of DST first.
01:09:40 <SmatZ> each ~four years, there would be one "special" day for 29th February
01:09:45 <__ln__> that's right, DST is the stupidest invention ever
01:09:52 <SmatZ> I think I even had names for those 10 days and 10 months...
01:10:06 <FauxFaux> SmatZ: Or just let it shift, then drop 50 days at a time and watch the public cry as you're making them older.
01:10:13 <FauxFaux> (Like they did last time.)
01:10:15 <SmatZ> at least in the past, DST saved power
01:10:34 <FauxFaux> That's disputed iirc.
01:12:05 <SmatZ> [02:10:50] <FauxFaux> (Like they did last time.) <== you mean that julian/gregorian calendar switch?
01:12:53 <DJNekkid> what is DST?
01:13:01 <SmatZ> daylight-saving time
01:13:15 <DJNekkid> thats what i thought
01:13:21 <SmatZ> that one-hour change in September and March (?)
01:13:42 <__ln__> when you least expect it
01:13:46 <SmatZ> actually, it seems to be the "summer time"
01:13:57 <DJNekkid> first saturday after the ... whats it called....
01:14:03 <DJNekkid> when the day is equally long
01:14:06 <FauxFaux> Solstice!
01:14:07 <DJNekkid> day/nicht
01:14:10 <Eddi|zuHause> equinox
01:14:21 <DJNekkid> solstice is in the winter and summer i believe?
01:14:23 <Eddi|zuHause> solstice is the shortest/longest day
01:14:33 <FauxFaux> I can't read "equinox" as not the Eclipse (Java IDE) platform thing.
01:14:58 <SmatZ> interesting, in CZ, the end of DST changed in 1996 from "last week in September" to "last week in October"
01:16:04 <DJNekkid> i think we have last week in october here as well
01:16:08 <DJNekkid> norway
01:16:25 <__ln__> plagiarism
01:16:43 <Eddi|zuHause> probably to match the german one
01:17:19 <SmatZ> probably has something to do with EU-unification
01:19:11 <__ln__> iirc, Estonia made the smart move and got rid of DST within the last 15 years, but then they joined EU and are again obeying DST.
01:19:32 <SmatZ> :)
01:20:53 <SmatZ> (funny advantage of DST - translated from Slovak)
01:22:36 <DJNekkid> not sure how much sense that made
01:22:51 <DJNekkid> it exploded in a bus instead of in the bank?
01:22:57 <SmatZ> [02:07:01] <DJNekkid> i have my wife for that... <== interesting, for some reason I thought you are quite young
01:23:30 <SmatZ> DJNekkid: it killed the terrorists instead of killing people in a bus
01:23:37 <DJNekkid> aha :D
01:23:56 <DJNekkid> well, im turning 30 in april, so i guess it can be discussed if im young or not :)
01:24:01 <SmatZ> google translate isn't perfect :)
01:24:14 <SmatZ> DJNekkid: older than me :)
01:24:37 <SmatZ> maybe I have mistaken you with someone else...
01:24:56 <SmatZ> (actually, it's quite possible)
01:25:45 <SmatZ> though... not as serious problem as Vinnie at the public server, who has the very same nick as "vinnie" who was banned
01:32:11 <Eddi|zuHause> how feasible would it be to have action14 reference a realsprite as "preview" image?
01:33:18 <Eddi|zuHause> might be problematic to have realsprites before action 8
01:34:39 <SmatZ> I would love to answer that, but I have no clue
01:38:44 <CIA-2> OpenTTD: smatz * r21875 /trunk/src/ (6 files in 4 dirs): -Codechange: indentation of some comments was wrong
01:41:22 * SmatZ wonders how that dioxin scandal could happen in Germany
01:43:45 <SmatZ> (I would wonder if it happened in any country, but in Germany, it surprises me twice as much)
01:44:01 <SmatZ> on the other hand, maybe in other countries, nobody would notice that :p

08:44:57 *** pugi has joined #openttd
08:46:15 <Terkhen> hi Bobingabout
08:46:26 <Bobingabout> hi :3
08:47:34 <Bobingabout> I have questions, not related to OTTD, but to programming... i just didn't know where else to turn, so i was wondering if someone here could help me
08:50:25 <FauxFaux> Not if you don't ask the questions.
08:50:57 <Terkhen> @get #openttd -3
08:50:57 <DorpsGek> Terkhen: Don't ask to ask, just ask
08:51:03 <Bobingabout> I'm writing a game, by myself, but with my current knowledge, and lack of direction, i started working on it in borland turbo C++ to quickly calculate formula and tune them etc. since starting my program has grown beyond what borland seems capable of compiling.
08:51:14 <Bobingabout> i saw, was typing, not so easy on a netbook
08:51:17 <FauxFaux> DorpsGek: Arrrrgh! Your question is entirely useless. Fill in the blanks: "I tried [X] in [Y]. I got [A] but I was expecting [B]. The simplest way I can think to reproduce this is [C]." Reply on one line. If it doesn't fit, use a pastebin. Do not even think of speaking before fully filling in the question.
08:51:39 * Terkhen has no experience with that compiler
08:51:51 <Bobingabout> doesn't matter, its old and crap
08:51:54 <Terkhen> I wasn't even aware it was still around
08:51:57 <FauxFaux> It's effectively deprecated, yeah.
08:52:01 <Bobingabout> its not
08:52:04 <Bobingabout> yup
08:52:16 <Bobingabout> anyway, i want a new compiler
08:52:40 <Bobingabout> i do have MSVC enterprise 2008, but am willing to try others
08:52:46 <Terkhen> Bobingabout: try the tutorials on how to compile OpenTTD and choose your compiler after that
08:53:00 <FauxFaux> On Windows you basically have to use MSVC, welcome to your one-platform platform. ¬_¬
08:53:11 <Terkhen> you have mingw too
08:53:20 <Bobingabout> compiling isn't the actual issue, the problem is what to do next
08:53:24 <FauxFaux> There's no serious IDE, though, is there.
08:53:27 <FauxFaux> +?
08:53:38 <FauxFaux> Eclipse CDT barely works on Windows, etc.
08:53:38 <Bobingabout> i want to move from old DOS stuff to new windows stuff
08:53:53 <FauxFaux> Like?
08:53:56 <Terkhen> there are a few IDEs that work with mingw; code blocks and qt creator
08:54:02 <FauxFaux> /o\
08:54:04 <Terkhen> I just use notepad++ myself
08:54:07 <FauxFaux> /o\
08:54:31 <Bobingabout> but the issue is... when i try on MSVC it tries to make me use a form view, like a windows popup dialog window, i do not want this
08:55:00 <FauxFaux> Bobingabout: The project creation window asks you what you want; you want either an empty project or a console project, not a gui one.
08:55:17 <Bobingabout> not console, so i guess empty
08:55:34 <Bobingabout> but then there's still the issue on how do i output to the screen, so... any guides on this?
08:55:43 <FauxFaux> How are you doing it at the moment? :s
08:56:24 <Bobingabout> gotoxy(X,Y); setbackgroundcolor(C); cprintf("text",variables);
08:56:29 <Terkhen> wow :)
08:56:55 <Bobingabout> of corse, gotoxy and setbackgroundcolor and things like that are classified in the CRT instructions, and are also depreciaed
08:57:09 <Bobingabout> plus i want graphics
08:57:15 <Bobingabout> a step forward
08:57:45 <Bobingabout> i guess the best thing for me is a guide on the simplest way to output graphics on a modern platform
08:58:02 <Terkhen> for something that creates graphics with simpler coding you could check Qt, although it might not be what you really need
08:58:20 <Bobingabout> how ddoes OTTD do it?
08:59:03 <Terkhen> check the gfx* functions and the video folder at OpenTTD code
08:59:08 <Bobingabout> i still arn't having any luck getting MSVC to open OTTD properly, but when i look at the code, it makes me go 0.o
08:59:15 <Terkhen> I might be forgetting something, it is not a part of the code I know well
08:59:34 <Bobingabout> gfx, okay
08:59:34 <Terkhen> there is a tutorial for MSVC at the wiki
08:59:44 <Bobingabout> i should read that X3
09:00:22 <Bobingabout> multiplatform is something i am open to, but i wouldn't know where to begin
09:00:33 <Bobingabout> not something i can do by myself
09:00:42 <Bobingabout> i'd be happy to make it run on 1 system
09:03:29 <Bobingabout> so how does OTTD do it?
09:04:22 <Terkhen> if you check stdafx.h you can get an idea
09:04:33 <Terkhen> and the os folders
09:05:36 <Bobingabout> so stdafx is graphics related?
09:05:39 <peter1138> if you want pixel output, sdl is a good start
09:05:55 <Terkhen> no, I mentioned the graphics files earlier
09:05:58 <peter1138> if you want a toolkit, try qt
09:06:06 <Terkhen> stdafx is an example of multiplatform code :)
09:06:33 <peter1138> technically openttd should only need to support sdl, heh...
09:06:46 <Terkhen> if you want something simple I would also suggest qt, it should also take care of multiplatform up to some point
09:06:53 <Bobingabout> pixel output is fine
09:07:04 <Bobingabout> its sprite based similar to OTTD
09:07:50 <Bobingabout> so what is this SDL?
09:08:32 <Terkhen> that's easily findable, their web should have a FAQ or something like that
09:09:05 <Bobingabout> so somthing else i have to download
09:11:27 <Bobingabout> okay, thanks for the help
09:11:52 <Terkhen> you are welcome
09:14:36 <Bobingabout> so, a summery... look at stdafx for multiplatform example, use MSVC in empty mode, look into SDL, and look into the GFX files of OTTD. also look up how to compile OTTD on windows
09:14:40 <Bobingabout> that about it?
09:15:23 <Terkhen> check Qt too, it might be simpler than doing all of those
09:15:58 *** Br33z4hSlut5 has quit IRC
09:16:10 <peter1138> eh, QT is good for a wimp-style program
09:16:23 <peter1138> SDL for a pixel-pushing gaming-type-thing
09:16:24 *** Devroush has joined #openttd
09:16:40 <Terkhen> yes, Qt is what I use when I don't want to think much about what I'm doing :)
09:16:46 <Bobingabout> Yeah, thats what i want. graphics drawing on a pixel level
09:16:56 <Terkhen> then go for SDL, yes
09:17:17 <Bobingabout> as long as i can have multiple layers of grapphics, say, background then chars on top
09:17:56 <peter1138> you've got to do that yourself
09:18:09 <Bobingabout> i don't mind, as long as its possible
09:18:09 *** Progman has joined #openttd
09:18:17 <peter1138> anything's possible
09:18:35 <Terkhen> yay for forgetting to add a file to my repo and then purging it
09:18:40 <Bobingabout> i don't think "microsoft getting things right" is possible
09:19:39 <Bobingabout> so, whats qt do thatis different from sdl?
09:20:22 <peter1138> qt is a gui toolkit
09:20:49 <Bobingabout> for things like windows windows? yeah, pass X3
09:21:23 <Bobingabout> at this phase, it might me easier though, put up a box, and write text in it
09:21:44 <Bobingabout> but i have to move forward at some point, why not now
09:23:10 <Bobingabout> bye
09:23:22 <peter1138> bye

10:20:10 <Terkhen> devilsadvocate: you are probably using two industry sets at the same time
10:20:32 <devilsadvocate> Terkhen: none of my other sets are industry sets

10:21:10 <Terkhen> take a screenshot and upload it somewhere
10:21:24 <planetmaker> complete screenshot of the newgrf settings / active newgrfs
10:22:28 <planetmaker> alternatively: save it as preset, exit the game, copy&paste the preset from your cfg
10:23:28 <Terkhen> but on some pastebin, not here :)
10:24:00 <planetmaker> ^^
10:25:43 *** DayDreamer has left #openttd
10:27:28 *** fonsinchen has joined #openttd
10:34:56 <Ammler> saveconfig does save to cfg without exit
10:35:09 <devilsadvocate> <-this is the list of GRFs I have active. all the settings are default (my .openttd directory is brand new)
10:36:20 <Ammler> ReducedPassengerPayment sounds like industry set
10:36:28 <devilsadvocate> I _used_ to play with ECS and japanese railway foo before i reinstalled my machine. I couldnt see all the ECS vectors on bananas, so I figured I may as well move to FIRS
10:37:04 <devilsadvocate> the descript says it just reduces passenger payment
10:37:07 *** Adambean has joined #openttd
10:37:13 <devilsadvocate> I'll remove it just in case and try
10:37:20 <Ammler> yes, I wonder how it does that
10:37:32 <George> devilsadvocate: I couldnt see all the ECS vectors on bananas, -> what could not you find on banans?
10:37:48 <devilsadvocate> no. the industry list did not change
10:38:01 <George> ?
10:38:03 <devilsadvocate> George: I only saw the Base and Construction vectors
10:38:16 <Ammler> also you might not need the ECS vehicle set and the ogfx+sets as those should be new industries compatible already
10:38:18 <George> Basec is now Basic II
10:38:52 <George> Conctruction is being moved to ECS Basic II
10:39:59 <devilsadvocate> George: I see ECS Basic Beta 5 (Nov 2009) and ECS Construction beta 5 (Dec 2010)
10:41:00 <devilsadvocate> Ammler: ok. i removed those. now the steel mill is back, but there are still two coal mines (which i can live with, tbh)
10:41:14 <George>
10:41:31 <Terkhen> IIRC AveiMil NewGRF is a industry set too
10:41:39 <George> ECS Basic vector II 1.0 (31Dec2010) 4805 times 4D656F9F CC-BY-NC-ND v3.0
10:42:24 <George> ECS Construction Vector B5 (27 Dec 2010) 7480 times 4D656F96 CC-BY-NC-ND v3.0
10:42:30 <planetmaker> devilsadvocate, I think the aveimil's gameplay mod does harm
10:42:44 <devilsadvocate> ok. removing that too
10:43:44 <Ammler> does someone know, how that reduced passenger payment grf works?
10:43:47 <planetmaker> indeed, ogfx+rv / ogfx+trains should provide exactly the same as the ecs&firs original vehicles
10:44:13 <planetmaker> I've no idea about that newgrf, but probably just re-defines the PASS cargo
10:44:27 <Ammler> you mena the default vehicles?
10:44:40 <planetmaker> no, the last line answered your question ;-)
10:44:48 <devilsadvocate> George: I'm not sure why, but I dont see Basic II from the In-Game thing.
10:45:15 <Ammler> yes it does :-)
10:46:10 <devilsadvocate> George:
10:46:21 <planetmaker> he, that newgrf window is so totally 1.0.x ;-)
10:46:46 <devilsadvocate> 1.0.4
10:46:49 <George> devilsadvocate: With check on-line content and "basic" as a filter I see both Basic and Basic II
10:46:51 <devilsadvocate> *buntu package
10:47:04 <George> [13:46:50] <devilsadvocate> 1.0.4 -> 1.0.5
10:47:32 <planetmaker> 1.0.5 -> 1.1.0-beta4 ;-)
10:47:35 <George> You do not see other ECS vectors too
10:47:40 <devilsadvocate> yeah
10:47:59 <George> planetmaker: 1.0.5 is enough
10:48:07 <George> to run ECS 1.0
10:48:18 <devilsadvocate> and yeah, the problem was the aveimil GRF. the industry set looks sane now.
10:48:34 <V453000> something new with ECS?
10:48:47 <George> V453000: it depends
10:48:51 <George> how new?
10:48:56 <George> 31Dec
10:49:08 <Ammler> devilsadvocate: if you care, you can report that to FIRS, so it could handle that issue
10:49:11 <V453000> dont know I havent played ECS for a year
10:49:12 <planetmaker> George, what difference do you expect to be between 1.0.4 and 1.0.5 to make that decision?
10:49:30 <planetmaker> (just wondering)
10:49:45 <George> the 1.0.5 was the last stable on 31 dec 2010
10:49:56 <devilsadvocate> Ammler: will do that. first i'm going to try a few combinations and see if it was just that
10:50:09 <George> if it would be 1.1 then I'd choose 1.1 :)
10:50:23 <planetmaker> he :-)
10:50:55 <George> planetmaker: something wrong?
10:51:07 <devilsadvocate> ok. the reduced passenger payment wasnt interfering
10:51:20 <planetmaker> no, I just wondered whether there was another reason. It's perfectly good enough one :-)
10:51:51 <Ammler> well, I would not use "perfectly" :-P
10:52:00 <devilsadvocate> I think one or more of the ogfx+rv / ogfx+trains / ecs&firs original vehicles was causing large scale breakage, though - the missing steel mill etc
10:52:21 <planetmaker> eh?
10:52:30 <V453000> George: would it be possible to make the primary industry grow slower on production? every time I played with ECS, it was nice that I could disable all the weird working things but the industries still grew just way too quickly in my opinion :( you get extremely high productions in very early ages
10:52:37 <planetmaker> those are vehicle newgrfs... they should have no impact on any industry
10:54:50 <devilsadvocate> hm
10:55:11 <George> V453000: Suggest the new growth algorithm.
10:56:11 <planetmaker> George, the only real 'twist' is that setting the min. version to 1.0.5 means also that it runs on nightlies which were created prior even to 1.0.0 ;-)
10:56:35 <planetmaker> as they have a higher version number as they already target 1.1 ;-)
10:56:44 <planetmaker> But most people won't play those anyway (anymore)
10:57:18 <Terkhen> I hope they don't :P
10:57:29 <V453000> George: I am just giving a feedback from a player :)
10:58:00 <V453000> the original industries have the best algorithm imo, only the vehicles would need something there :)
10:58:29 <George> V453000: It is not the first callback like that. Currently I disabled x2 growth if current production is above 50%
10:58:47 <George> May be you can suggest somethung better?
10:59:10 <George> I understand it is a problem, but I do not see elegant solution for that
10:59:22 <George> Players suggestions may help a lot
10:59:23 *** perk11 has joined #openttd
10:59:34 <V453000> I dont really know :) was just suggesting the general idea ... will look into that later
11:00:01 <George> default algothirm is too random
11:00:48 *** tycoondemon has quit IRC
11:01:38 <George> planetmaker: as they have a higher version number as they already target 1.1 -> setting min version to 1.0.4 would do the same, right?
11:03:01 <Ammler> feature wise, 1.0.0 is the same as 1.0.5 in most cases, you might just set a higher if there was a bugfix between
11:03:47 <V453000> George: the randomness is actually great :)

11:05:59 <George> V453000: I've tested it in the early versions of the ECS Wood vector. While testing I find it is a madness. BTW, smooth economy was invented not on the free place, but because of this randomness
11:06:17 <V453000> :)
11:06:32 <V453000> I meant smooth of course
11:06:48 <George> when you transport 1024 tons of coal and suddenly get 512 - it is like a hurricane
11:06:57 <George> or even worse
11:07:08 *** DJNekkid has quit IRC
11:08:36 <George> <V453000> I meant smooth of course -> I can suggest to disallow growing above 12,5% in case transportation level is not 60, but 80% ;)
11:08:42 <George> would it be better?
11:09:11 <V453000> that would make some good sense I think
11:09:40 <V453000> so theoretically, as good service would you provide, the industry could slow down if you provided not good enough?
11:10:38 *** KenjiE20 has joined #openttd
11:12:19 <George> yes, for high growth you would need not good, but excelent service
11:14:55 <George> do you think that growing to the highest level should happen in 11 years in case of normal service (60-80%) or 11 years is not much enougth for you?
11:15:03 <V453000> way too soon
11:15:10 <V453000> I would make it like 50 or even more years
11:15:14 <George> how many years do you expect?
11:15:27 <George> the game lasts only 100 years
11:15:29 <V453000> 11 is like ... 2,5 hours
11:15:49 <V453000> well, if it lasts 100, then it should take at least 50 to get to highest level
11:15:52 <George> but the whole game is 24 hours
11:16:19 <V453000> well, yes, but many people play for example from 1900 till 2100
11:16:30 <George> you do not start transporting from every industry on the first day
11:16:35 <V453000> no, definitely not
11:16:48 <V453000> but at the same time you do not want to have all industries on top production I think
11:17:33 <V453000> and it shouldnt be imo so easy to get the best thing :)
11:18:09 *** Wolf01 has joined #openttd
11:18:16 <V453000> when you image you start in 1930-50, there arent any much new trains until ~1970 in most of the sets
11:18:39 <V453000> if you start growing some industries in the start, by 1970 it will be just so high :(
11:18:49 <Wolf01> hello
11:19:02 <V453000> then newer trains might come, but the productions are already too high to cope reasonably
11:19:42 <V453000> my point there is, if you have an industry that requires 1 full line of trains on its own, it results in people building just single lines there and back, without any thinking

11:19:47 <Wolf01> @logs

14:01:38 <Belugas> hello
14:01:47 <SmatZ> hello Belugas
14:02:23 <Eddi|zuHause> fonsinchen: have you thought about a toggle button to show own company grid only or all companies' grid? [this might be along the same line as showing other companies' custom company colours, i.e. an advanced setting. or a button in the smallmap]
14:05:40 <Belugas> mister SmatZ!
14:06:07 <Belugas> toggle switch. 3PDT. bi-polar led
14:09:02 <fonsinchen> Eddi|zuHause: If done like company colours I'd get serious space problems in the smallmap legend
14:09:30 <fonsinchen> And I don't quite know what the point about showing other companies' link graphs would be.
14:10:08 <fonsinchen> I already had to increase the default size of the smallmap to accomodate the saturation legend.
14:10:11 <Eddi|zuHause> fonsinchen: outside of infrastructure sharing it would be mostly informative, but with infrastructure sharing it might really be important to know
14:11:03 <fonsinchen> Then we should implement it when either infrastructure sharing or cargodist is in trunk and the other one is to be merged.
14:12:38 <Eddi|zuHause> fonsinchen: the magic 3 seems to be there since r1
14:13:13 <fonsinchen> That doesn't help me answer Rubidiums question, though.
14:14:37 <fonsinchen> I guess it won't be that hard to create a general class for drawing a link graph overlay on any window. I'll refactor things to allow that.

14:50:36 <dihedral> uh - by the way
14:51:00 <dihedral> would it make sense to introduce a server side setting which defines if a clients move request is processed? :-)
14:52:31 <dihedral> perhaps with different values, defining if a) a client may move at all, b) client may move to spectators c) client can move as he/she wishes
14:53:13 <Eddi|zuHause> isn't that the perfect task that a bot is useful for?

15:06:00 <planetmaker> If a client should not join the server: pw protect it

15:32:12 <Ammler> peter1138: the only usage I see for company_pw is for replacing random server pw with random company pw
15:32:56 <planetmaker> Ammler, or for making a certain company accessible only to a certain player group, but forcing one company PW
15:33:06 <planetmaker> like for wwottdgd/x
15:33:08 <Ammler> but as one who moved from company to specs because he does pause, would need to give the pw again, so it become useless

16:53:57 <Fixer> to
16:54:16 <planetmaker> yeah, that's the correct way. And when you can translate your language that obviously also worked
16:54:51 <Fixer> and i don't get an email ;(
16:56:16 *** Trenskow has joined #openttd
16:56:19 <Fixer> btw new rail list feature is cool
16:56:34 <planetmaker> it even works in 1.0.x ;-)
16:56:35 <Fixer> i mean station list *
16:56:40 <planetmaker> oh :-) yeah
16:56:53 <Fixer> already tried it... really nice
16:57:01 *** Trenskow has left #openttd
16:57:15 * planetmaker also likes the industry chain view
16:57:24 <planetmaker> and the new NewGRF selection
16:57:41 <Terkhen> :)
16:57:46 <Terkhen> those are really nice
16:57:47 <planetmaker> and... the NewObjects and... and ... and :-)
16:57:48 <Fixer> but one question is what is the default value for popup help? it opens for too long (i set it to minimun value right now)
16:58:05 *** darkomen has joined #openttd
16:58:06 <Fixer> 2 is really big delay
16:58:17 <planetmaker> 2 is default afaik
16:58:24 <Terkhen> it opens for as long as you keep the mouse over the widget
16:58:35 <planetmaker> you don't want it to show always when you just try to click a button, do you?
16:58:54 <Fixer> no... but it feels slow :)
16:59:02 <Fixer> like wait few seconds
16:59:23 <planetmaker> then set it to 1 second or right click - though right click does not work in one or two exceptions - IIRC
16:59:24 <Terkhen> you can always disable it to show them with the right click as before
16:59:32 <planetmaker> he :-)
16:59:55 <Fixer> ok
17:00:08 <Fixer> thanks... i was thinking that 0 is disabling
17:00:44 <Terkhen> after recent changes in the strings it should explicitly say what "disabled" does
17:01:17 <planetmaker> Fixer, fix the translation ;-)
17:01:31 <planetmaker> what Terkhen says.
17:01:42 <Fixer> ok
17:01:44 <Fixer> i will look at it
17:02:14 <Terkhen> check both Untranslated Strings and Strings Needing Validation
17:03:19 <Fixer> found it
17:04:58 *** darkomen has quit IRC
17:07:06 <Fixer> 190 strings are needing validation
17:07:09 <Fixer> that's huge
17:07:20 *** maddy_ has joined #openttd
17:07:24 <Fixer> didn't know about that
17:08:38 <maddy_> hi all, I'm trying to add the programmable signals patch manually, just wondering should I set the savegame version to something like 999? the original patch had incremented it by one

17:42:48 *** Zuu has joined #openttd
17:48:08 <dihedral> you spoilsport :-P
17:49:43 <maddy_> so can anyone tell me please? is it good idea to set save version to 999 if I add a patch (instead of increment by one, which would conflict when it's officially incremented by one in future)
17:52:04 <Terkhen> maddy_: your call
17:52:06 *** Zuu has quit IRC
17:52:54 <maddy_> either one will work tho? I'm not at all familiar with this
17:54:11 <maddy_> as in, if I play now with my custom savegame format, then it's changed in the future, will I be able to load my games if I update my source to the newer one
17:54:51 <planetmaker> it only matters for savegame compatibility. Maintaining savegame compatibility will require work on your part.
17:55:11 <planetmaker> look at src/saveload/saveload.cpp (IIRC)
17:55:21 <SpComb> but if trunk updates and bumps..
17:55:39 <planetmaker> that's the part where work is required ;-)
17:55:57 <SpComb> you'll have to bump and hack the saveload stuff because your savegame has a weird version
17:56:21 <planetmaker> if one wants to do that work, it might be more desirable to bump by a bit and then follow the trunk bumps
17:56:43 <maddy_> yeah, I'm assuming there will be a problem at some point, was just wondering if there was some "clean" way to do it
17:58:39 <glx> any trunk bump will probably break your saves if not patched correctly
17:59:15 <planetmaker> yeah. And as that is tedious work, usually not done (I know two PP only which did / do that).
17:59:44 <glx> and that was very hacky :)
17:59:58 <planetmaker> hehe
18:00:19 *** Chris_Booth has joined #openttd
18:00:48 <maddy_> but if I always load my savegame with my custom client, will it still break when savegame format in trunk is changed (assuming I update from svn my client too)
18:01:16 <SpComb> your custom client will save the savegames with v=999
18:01:37 <maddy_> yes, but considering I don't use the 999, instead use the default, or increment by 1
18:01:44 <SpComb> then the updated trunk with v=151 will check for savegames with v=150, and do compat loading for them
18:01:55 <SpComb> you'd have to bump to v=1000 and s/150/999/
18:02:11 <planetmaker> maddy_, if you just change the savegame version number, you'll have lost your old savegame.
18:02:41 <glx> miniIN used +2 and special handling IIRC
18:04:29 <maddy_> so if I set my version to 158, then trunk bumps it to 158, I compile my client with the new version, can I load my save?
18:05:46 <SpComb> it'll have stuff in it that's different from what a trunk 158 save would have
18:06:24 <planetmaker> <maddy_> so if I set my version to 158, then trunk bumps it to 158, I compile my client with the new version, can I load my save? <-- no. Unless you add special code to take care of that
18:06:25 <SpComb> i.e. the 157 stuff, your patch stuff, and none of the 158 stuff
18:07:14 <maddy_> right
18:14:01 <maddy_> so in essence, it's hard to use patches on the code, while maintaining savegame compability with trunk
18:15:00 <SpComb> it's easy to have your patched build be able to load trunk savegames
18:15:05 <SpComb> that's what you usually get
18:15:28 <planetmaker> you get that for free if you patch properly actually
18:15:42 <planetmaker> older trunk saves than the revision which you patch.
18:15:49 <SpComb> but supporting both patched and updated trunk savegames is more involved
18:16:01 <maddy_> I see
18:16:03 *** dihedral has quit IRC
18:16:14 *** dihedral has joined #openttd
18:16:17 <SpComb> since the savegame versioning is just a purely linear history
18:16:27 <SpComb> doesn't do merges
18:16:59 <SpComb> but it's possible with difficult to understand trickery that miniIN used :)
18:17:22 <Terkhen> back then I tried to understand it, but I ended up deciding it was not worth the effort
18:17:32 <Terkhen> I just started and finished all of my games with the same version
18:18:03 <maddy_> I guess one "simple" way would be to store the custom data in a separate file alltogether, and not in the official .save?
18:18:16 <SpComb> unlikely
18:18:23 <glx> another option is to use a new chunk
18:19:05 <glx> but that can cause other problems I think
18:19:25 <dihedral> znc upgrade :-)
18:20:20 <maddy_> Terkhen: yeah I'll probably do that too
18:20:37 *** Chris_Booth has quit IRC
18:20:47 <Terkhen> it what requires less effort and it is not really an issue if your games are relatively short
18:21:37 *** frosch123 has joined #openttd
18:22:41 <maddy_> at least compiling openttd was easy, all needed files in handy, so I'll have to at least thank the devs for that
18:23:26 *** Chris_Booth has joined #openttd
18:23:56 *** ZirconiumX has joined #openttd
18:24:06 <SpComb> ideally the saveload mechanism would support some kind of nonlinear versioning
18:24:29 <SpComb> not sure if it would just be as simple as separate, named chunks for trunk's stuff and the patch's stuff, and then separate versions for each
18:24:37 *** ZirconiumX has quit IRC
18:24:44 <SpComb> patch code would handle the patch's chunk and trunk code would ignore it
18:25:53 <maddy_> yeah, I was thinking of something like that, and wondering if such a thing exists
18:26:00 <SpComb> but the patch's version would still have to be newer than the trunk's version
18:26:06 *** Fast2 has quit IRC
18:26:19 <SpComb> or something along those lines..

19:11:47 <peter1138> uh... run it in the debugger?
19:12:59 <maddy_> good tip
19:16:27 <maddy_> found the problem, division by zero:
19:17:07 *** fonsinchen has quit IRC
19:17:30 <maddy_> I did add a new line to settings_type.h where that is defined, that has to be the prob
19:18:40 *** murr4y has quit IRC
19:19:14 <maddy_> how do I fix it?
19:19:36 <Xaroth_> well, don't divide by zero, obviously
19:19:56 <maddy_> how do I add something to settings_type.h without breaking it?
19:19:57 <Xaroth_> there is no 'on error resume next' in C :)
19:20:26 <maddy_> I assume it's crashing on trying to load the title game
19:21:11 <andythenorth> evenings
19:21:41 <frosch123> maddy_: likely you did not specify the savegame version, when you added the var
19:22:06 <frosch123> so you loaded something from the title-savegame which was not there, and everything behind got shifted
19:22:19 <maddy_> yes
19:22:34 <maddy_> where do I specify the version for the new variable?

22:30:17 <glx> or none :)
22:30:20 <George> thomas001: how large is your map?
22:30:26 <SmatZ> there are some rules in what order they should be loaded... it's described somewhere :)
22:30:29 *** LordAro has quit IRC
22:30:38 <thomas001> George, i like to play 512x256
22:30:40 <andythenorth> try the newest beta versions...
22:30:55 <thomas001> andythenorth, i have ne newest versions available in bananas
22:31:13 <SmatZ> thomas001: or try FIRS :)
22:31:18 <George> thomas001: Amount of water?
22:31:20 <thomas001> firs?
22:31:23 <andythenorth> George released new vectors somewhere recently
22:31:25 <thomas001> George, uhm...standard
22:31:53 <thomas001> most vectors are labeled dec 2010 or jan 2011
22:32:22 <George> Normal means medium?
22:32:43 *** Chillosophy has joined #openttd
22:33:04 <George> amount of town/industries?
22:33:36 <SmatZ> :-)
22:33:40 <George> terrain type?
22:34:06 <thomas001> wait
22:34:55 <George> SmatZ: I mean in case of mountains, large number of lakes and industries map generator would make a mess of industries
22:34:56 <thomas001> normal towns, hight industry, but i can also change this ;)
22:35:11 <thomas001> i just search for settings fun to play
22:35:19 <SmatZ> (just to explain... andythenorth is author of FIRS, George is author of ECS)
22:35:46 <SmatZ> George: sure :) I was just smiling because I was happy how you care about users of your newgrf :)
22:36:12 <George> For this map size (512x256) and high number of industries there would be too much industries
22:36:50 <George> You can change number of indutries on the map, and in this case you would have less but different industries
22:37:10 <thomas001> okay i will try that
22:37:11 *** perk111 has quit IRC
22:37:21 <George> or you can reduce the number of vectors and would get more similar industries on the map
22:37:29 <George> the second is easier to play
22:38:39 <George> If you want an easier game I'd suggest not to use machinery and wood vector
22:39:08 <George> But if you like the game to be difficult - all vectors are your choise
22:39:45 <thomas001> hmm i will keep that in mind, thank you :)
22:39:57 <thomas001> or i will try firs..never heard of that before

22:41:21 <George> andythenorth, correct me if I'm wrong
22:41:53 <andythenorth> there will be some more changes in 0.6 but not many
22:42:02 <thomas001> uhhm there are *a lot* industries in firs
22:42:09 <andythenorth> yup

22:50:16 <andythenorth> my server seems a bit slow today though :o
22:50:24 <andythenorth> pages aren't loading for me
22:50:27 <Rubidium> dihedral: try to explain the problem or rather the thing you're trying to do
22:51:08 <dihedral> hmmm
22:51:08 <thomas001> okay i'll try to set up a fun new game, thank you all :)
22:51:58 <dihedral> it's the problem of handling chat messages
22:52:18 <dihedral> they origniate somwhere (irc, openttd)
22:52:34 <dihedral> they come from a user (i'll need a generic user object)
22:52:57 <dihedral> in irc (and relevant for a reply) there is a channel involved regarding public chat
22:53:44 <dihedral> irc and openttd also provide different information about a user, trying to turn that into a genetic something is not my strength :-P
22:54:03 <Rubidium> maybe some URI thing?
22:54:23 <Rubidium> irc://
22:54:39 <Rubidium> openttd://Rubidium@someserver/all
22:54:44 <Rubidium> openttd://Rubidium@someserver/company#0

22:55:52 <Wolf01> 'night
22:55:55 *** Wolf01 has quit IRC
22:56:04 <dihedral> i was thinking of a user object which reflects name, login, user, host / ip
22:56:43 <dihedral> regarding the source of a message i am more stuck
22:56:58 <dihedral> there needs to be a way to generically define how to reply, chat public and private
22:57:02 <Rubidium> that could get the same thing as the destination
22:57:25 <dihedral> as the information needed is not always the same
22:57:40 <dihedral> irc needs a channel and a string for the public chat, openttd needs just the string
22:58:13 <dihedral> private chat - irc needs a nick, openttd an id - that can be handled with the user object
22:58:49 <Rubidium> dihedral: see the public OpenTTD chat as a channel
22:59:02 <Rubidium> dihedral: see private chats as channels
22:59:46 <Rubidium> see the user id for private chats as a channel, just toString the id
23:01:06 <dihedral> i am considering a MessageProvider, one for OpenTTD one for IRC
23:01:23 <dihedral> the MessageProvider would define the methods both must implement
23:12:46 <dihedral> hmm
23:12:58 *** Fast2 has joined #openttd
23:13:11 <dihedral> i do not know how many approaches i've already had :-P
23:16:04 <CIA-2> OpenTTD: yexo * r21885 /trunk/src/ (newgrf_text.cpp strings.cpp table/control_codes.h): -Fix [FS#4422]: NewGRF string codes 0x80 and 0x81 were broken since the typechecking of string parameters
23:16:05 <dihedral> anyway - it's late
23:16:10 <dihedral> i'll head to bed
23:16:11 <dihedral> good night
23:16:16 <SmatZ> nn dihedral
23:16:21 <dihedral> nn SmatZ
23:16:32 <dihedral> thanks for your input Rubidium

23:30:46 <DJNekkid> * 0 00 10 \b16 01 DFLT_E_80 // action0, for rails, numprops, numrails, ID
23:30:47 <DJNekkid> 14 \w80
23:30:55 <DJNekkid> what byte is \w80 here?
23:31:13 <DJNekkid> 7 ?
23:31:55 <DJNekkid> (DFLT_E_80 is actually placeheld for \b0)
23:32:52 <Rubidium> guess it is
23:33:42 <DJNekkid> hmm, apparently is it 6
23:34:20 <Rubidium> byte or offset?
23:34:36 *** frosch123 has quit IRC
23:34:37 <Rubidium> 00 01 02; 00 is the first byte, but at offset 0
23:35:36 <DJNekkid> whatever actuion6's count :P
23:35:45 <DJNekkid> *action
23:36:12 <DJNekkid> :D
23:36:33 <Rubidium> in any case... I hope my bed is warm
23:36:35 <DJNekkid> adding adjustable speeds via action14 to nutracks :)
23:36:58 <DJNekkid> unless you have a woman there (as i assume you prefer thoose), i doubt it :) but GN :)
