00:03:59 <z-MaTRiX> rieksts: sure
00:04:16 <z-MaTRiX> either turn off at the messages or delete from mthe source and recompile
00:05:14 <z-MaTRiX> there is also a setting vehicles never expire i remember

03:10:39 <rieksts> z-MaTRiX: the vehicles never expire option is on. I think this is nothing but an onnoyance if breakdowns are disabled. There should be an option to turn old vehicle messages off, i cant elieve that i am the only one who finds this annoying.
03:11:47 <Eddi|zuHause> rieksts: you can turn off all vehicle messages
03:11:57 <Eddi|zuHause> in the news settings
03:17:38 <rieksts> yes, but as I said earlier i would like to keep the usefull ones

08:28:51 <andythenorth> morningz
08:37:52 <dihedral> good morning
08:39:49 <Terkhen> good morning
08:49:19 <dihedral> Rubidium, is the mention of the move command in fs4464 the reason why it asserts or just a simple way to reproduce the assert?
08:50:31 <dihedral> my fear would be the move command being responsible for it

09:35:44 *** andythenorth has quit IRC
09:49:11 <Rubidium> dihedral: yes, the move command causes the same assertion as well
09:49:18 <Rubidium> though slightly due to different circumstances
09:49:44 <Rubidium> hmm, well partly...
09:50:13 <Rubidium> the precondition to reset a company (no clients) was met so the command is sent
09:50:22 <Rubidium> with the move command you put someone in the company
09:50:54 <Rubidium> which triggers the same assertions as the initial bankruptcy problem
09:52:52 <Rubidium> and now I look at it... it might even be the case that merging (buying shares) causes trouble

10:09:08 * andythenorth does hope to ship FIRS 0.6 soon :)
10:09:57 <Alberth> is FISH ready for that job?
10:10:59 <Alberth> perhaps you should extend HEQS with
10:11:47 <Alberth> cargo: 'building' :)
10:14:15 <andythenorth> heh
10:20:16 <planetmaker> hehe. I once drove a road, then a care with the sign "house ahead" drove in front of me. two curves later, I saw that it actually was true...
10:20:29 <planetmaker> a half house was driving on such truck in front of me
10:20:40 <planetmaker> s/care/car/
10:20:51 <Alberth> so they lied :)
10:20:59 <planetmaker> funny thing was that still curtains etc were in the windows...
10:21:17 <planetmaker> hehe, yes :-P
10:22:05 <planetmaker> though maybe the other half was in front of that. It was impossible to look past that ;-)
10:22:46 * andythenorth awaits a delivery from Mr MacKellar
10:22:56 <andythenorth> 1x iron works is expected at noon
10:23:02 <planetmaker> \o/
10:23:30 <planetmaker> andythenorth: as replacement for the steel mill? Or another industry?
10:23:39 <andythenorth> another industry
10:23:47 <andythenorth> MB was right about the early metal chain
10:23:56 <planetmaker> in what way?
10:24:16 <andythenorth> he said it should be two processing industries not one
10:24:20 <andythenorth> I thought I knew better
10:24:23 <andythenorth> but I was wrong in this case
10:25:37 <planetmaker> aye
10:27:05 *** guyht has joined #openttd
10:28:55 <CIA-11> OpenTTD: alberth * r21969 /trunk/src/ (6 files in 4 dirs): -Feature: Introduce 'minimal' number of industries as a replacment for the old 'none' setting in the newgame window.
10:29:16 <andythenorth> ^ what does it do? sounds good...
10:29:57 <Alberth> it behaves mostly like the old 'none' setting, except it starts with all forced industries instead of 0 industries
10:30:03 <planetmaker> what the name says :-)
10:30:23 * andythenorth likes
10:31:03 <Alberth> perhaps you can explain why it is a good setting
10:31:11 <planetmaker> :-D
10:31:26 <andythenorth> I prefer the word 'minimal' :P
10:31:40 <planetmaker> 'none' still remains ;-)
10:32:01 <andythenorth> heh
10:32:06 <Alberth> ie what's the point of starting without industries if you aim to set up industry cargo chains?
10:32:31 <andythenorth> dunno
10:32:55 <andythenorth> make money on PAX, then fund industry?
10:32:59 <andythenorth> maybe some people like that
10:33:30 <Alberth> that I can understand, which is what the current 'none' does
10:33:33 * planetmaker should de-compile av8... for easier alignment of the new OpenGFX planes
10:34:39 <Alberth> nmlc -d -i av8.grf -o ac8.nml ? :p
10:35:30 <planetmaker> :-P
10:35:40 *** |Jeroen| has quit IRC
10:35:50 *** guyht has quit IRC
10:35:51 <planetmaker> I just grep-awked the current aircrafts somewhat from nfo to nml ;-)
10:36:27 <planetmaker> -s
10:36:33 <andythenorth> cunning
10:36:44 <planetmaker> real sprites are easy, you know ;-)
10:38:32 <andythenorth> planetmaker....I need sometime soon to face that cb28 patch :(
10:38:44 <CIA-11> OpenTTD: rubidium * r21970 /trunk/src/economy.cpp: -Fix [FS#4464]: Crash when a multiplayer company goes bankrupt with 'you' in it
10:38:52 <CIA-11> OpenTTD: alberth * r21971 /trunk/src/saveload/saveload.cpp: -Fix (r21969): Subversion auto-increments revision on commit.
10:39:18 <planetmaker> uhm... you mean the layout selection? Or what was cb28?
10:39:36 <andythenorth> well there are two approaches
10:39:41 <andythenorth> one is to be able to specify layout
10:40:00 <andythenorth> the other is to have cb28 cycle through layouts until one is allowed (or end if none)
10:40:14 <andythenorth> frosch thought the cb28 route was better
10:40:29 <planetmaker> so do I :-)
10:40:37 <andythenorth> he thought it already *should* do that
10:40:41 <andythenorth> i.e. it's out of spec
10:40:53 <planetmaker> I'd prepare (internally) a list of allowed layouts and then pick one from that
10:41:03 <planetmaker> but it's a bit convoluted
10:41:28 <planetmaker> I looked briefly at it the other day, but then decided that sleep was the better option
10:41:54 <andythenorth> it seems to be a case of moving some code to 1 or 2 new functions
10:41:59 *** frosch123 has joined #openttd
10:42:01 <andythenorth> and changing the existing loop
10:42:03 <andythenorth> quak
10:42:07 <planetmaker> quak :-)
10:42:11 <Alberth> quak
10:42:26 <planetmaker> andythenorth: yes, somewhat. A function like GetPermissibleLayout() or so should be in order
10:42:52 <andythenorth> I wish I could find the transcript I save :P
10:43:00 <andythenorth> frosch123 gave instructions in it :|
10:43:41 <frosch123> moin :)
10:43:59 <Alberth> computers just shift the problems from not having information to not being able to find it :)
10:44:35 <frosch123> iirc you just had to pass the layout number through a bunch of functions, and move the calling of cb 28 to an earrlier place

10:47:15 <JOHN-SHEPARD> ;_;
10:52:09 <frosch123> why do we have so many users who harrass other fs reporters, whenever there is a crash report and the log contains the line "grf config changed"? esp. when it is very doubtful the crash is caused by that :s
10:53:25 <Wolf01> do an automatic check for "grf config changed" and reject the bug report with a red error box
10:53:26 <Alberth> trying to be helpful, but utterly clueless ?
10:53:42 <frosch123> Alberth: but it annoys me (dih in this case btw :p )
10:54:05 <frosch123> if you yell at somenoe else you should at least know what you are talking about
10:54:27 <Alberth> there are more users that add comments about bugs not always relevant to the problem
10:55:16 <Alberth> frosch123: you do? Thizz iszz tze internet man!
10:56:09 <Alberth> I sometimes add comments about such actions :)
11:01:17 *** fonsinchen has joined #openttd
11:07:28 *** Brianetta has quit IRC
11:08:01 <dihedral> frosch123, i take your point, and i was not trying to be helpful to be honest
11:08:11 <frosch123> :)
11:08:15 <frosch123> no problem
11:08:35 <dihedral> but i'll refrain from such comments in the future ;-)
11:10:43 <dihedral> however i would not be surprised if people in the forums stumble across that bug report and complain about it not being 'allowed' without setting the developer tools thingy
11:11:07 <dihedral> however crashes being supported in bugs. :-P
11:13:06 <Terkhen> but OpenTTD shouldn't segfault because of that
11:13:31 <dihedral> true :-(

11:49:09 <planetmaker> and that on the weekend!
11:51:52 <DanMacK> yeah...
11:52:03 <DanMacK> and long shift today :P Gonna be fun, lol
11:55:45 <andythenorth>
11:56:26 <Eddi|zuHause> i had to get up early today as well ;)
12:01:00 *** goblin has quit IRC
12:03:34 <Alberth> a bit massive, isn't it, Andy?
12:07:24 *** pugi has joined #openttd
12:09:36 <andythenorth> it's tall yes
12:11:27 <andythenorth> Alberth: it fits with other buildings ;)
12:11:27 <andythenorth>
12:12:36 <Alberth> from a somewhat different style/era :)
12:13:44 <Eddi|zuHause> FIRS buildings in general seem to be fairly tall
12:13:56 <andythenorth> they are
12:14:08 <andythenorth> but they're scaled to houses
12:14:15 <andythenorth> and default industries ;)
12:14:22 <Eddi|zuHause> it looks out of proportion when they are in the middle of empty space
12:14:41 <andythenorth> oh well
12:14:43 <andythenorth> too late now :P
12:15:12 <andythenorth> it would seem odd to draw them at a different scale to the rest of the game
12:15:24 <andythenorth> 'scale' being somewhat flexible I know
12:15:37 <Eddi|zuHause> the houses have different scales all over the place
12:16:29 <Alberth> would it get better if you leave out a few chimneys? (so there is a bit more empty room between them)
12:16:46 <andythenorth> maybe
12:17:25 <Alberth> but all pixels would need to be moved then :(
12:17:58 <andythenorth> it's a funny looking thing anyway:
12:18:22 <andythenorth> I think it will look better once there are shadows under it
12:18:29 <andythenorth> currently it is hovering a bit
12:18:55 <andythenorth> i.e. doesn't look like the structure is connected to the ground
12:23:33 <Alberth> yeah that will help a lot
12:27:46 <andythenorth> FIRS website shows nearly as many industries deprecated as included
12:27:57 *** Brianetta has joined #openttd
12:33:47 <Alberth> once you passed that point, you must make a FIRS:the original grf
12:35:12 <planetmaker> andythenorth: the better structure might be: make one industry list per (major) version - and skip all deprecated stuff
12:35:31 <planetmaker> better overview and one can still go back in time by viewing the stuff in other (older )versions
12:36:28 <andythenorth> planetmaker: I'll rework that website one day to do that :)
12:36:47 <andythenorth> kind of does ;)

12:44:00 <andythenorth> Alberth:
12:44:02 <andythenorth> no chimneys
12:44:14 <andythenorth> it's easier on the eye
12:44:27 <andythenorth> the chimneys were too much
12:45:01 <Alberth> doesn't a kiln need some chimneys?
12:45:07 <andythenorth> in RL yes
12:45:13 <andythenorth> but it's whatever looks best here...
12:45:21 <andythenorth> I'll try drawing a smaller chimney for it
12:45:29 <andythenorth> or different colour
12:45:46 <planetmaker> andythenorth: is it possible to have quarry / dredging site be the same industry?
12:45:55 <andythenorth> planetmaker: I wondered that
12:45:58 <planetmaker> (just a random idea to save a slot ;-) )
12:46:14 <andythenorth> I can't see how to resolve that to one string
12:46:16 <andythenorth> is one problem

12:46:27 <andythenorth> ?
12:46:30 *** Guest325 has quit IRC
12:47:15 <planetmaker> Hm...
12:47:35 <andythenorth> the other issue is that 'build on water' is simply an action 0 flag property
12:48:01 <andythenorth> there would need to be tile checking code written with cb2f to replace it
12:48:55 <andythenorth> it's logical, but maybe not best use of available time?
12:49:12 <planetmaker> probably not :-)
12:49:19 <planetmaker> and there's still 20 slots free :-P
12:50:05 <andythenorth> slots fine
12:50:15 <andythenorth> minimap is a bit hard to use though :(
12:50:22 <planetmaker> <-- DanMacK :-)

12:56:59 <andythenorth> there's room
12:57:01 <V453000> no shit! :)
12:57:42 <SmatZ> beer!
12:59:40 <Terkhen> indeed, the HQ should accept beer
12:59:58 <V453000> andythenorth: I think it would be a favorised change to FIRS :p
13:00:19 <andythenorth> I've been trying to keep 3 cargo slots free

13:12:49 <Terkhen> :D
13:16:44 <frosch123> beer? isn't that just food?
13:16:53 <V453000> no way
13:17:26 <frosch123> i see, express, piece goods, refridgerated :p
13:17:40 <V453000> and beer
13:17:55 <Alberth> -20 degrees celsius should be enough :)
13:18:02 <andythenorth> there should be a variation depending on language
13:18:07 <planetmaker> hm... beer-ice
13:18:11 <andythenorth> british english doesn't require refridgerated
13:18:12 <andythenorth> :P
13:18:42 <V453000> that is done only with bad beer ... so that you dont feel how bad it is when it is cold :)
13:18:47 <planetmaker> lool @ andythenorth
13:19:07 <andythenorth> I prefer cold beer
13:19:19 <V453000> sure, but frozen beer isnt that good :p
13:20:41 <Eddi|zuHause> andythenorth: have you seen asterix? ;)
13:21:36 <andythenorth> I have read the books :)
13:26:55 <planetmaker> better than the movies anyway ;-)
13:31:57 <andythenorth> would someone figure out how to make HQ accept beer?
13:36:08 <Eddi|zuHause> has anyone ever tried to make an "economy" without any cargos at all?
13:36:36 <Eddi|zuHause> and checked how horribly it breaks things? :p
13:39:13 <Alberth> we'd all go bankrupt

13:49:43 <planetmaker> Eddi|zuHause: easier would be to just modify the cargo payment rates.
13:50:56 <dihedral> Terkhen, that sonds great :-)
13:51:00 <dihedral> *sounds
13:51:16 <Terkhen> thanks, I was sick of doing that by mistake :)
13:52:03 <dihedral> especially good for multiplayer servers :-)
13:53:16 <Terkhen> is there any other town authority action that could be harmful on multiplayer without a setting?
13:54:25 <Rubidium> technically town growing can harm multiplayer
13:54:51 <dihedral> iirc exclusive rights already has a setting, and advertising campain has an influence when competing
13:55:19 <Terkhen> hmm... advertising campaing sounds harmless enough for me
13:55:36 <Terkhen> fund new buildings could get a setting too just for consistency
13:56:08 <frosch123> that setting is very useful in desert :)
13:56:38 <frosch123> s/setting/action/
13:56:41 <Terkhen> or if town growth is disabled
13:56:53 <dihedral> it has an influence on distribution of cargo to stations though, does it not?
13:57:10 <frosch123> anyway, imo the other stuff does not need settings
13:57:51 <frosch123> if you want to disable advertising you could as well disable the effect of new vehicles on rating
13:58:10 <dihedral> hehe - true :-D
13:58:17 <frosch123> and then the engine speed, and then ...
13:58:23 <dihedral> hehe

14:13:31 <Nite> Hi
14:14:31 <Nite> typing in the service intervall for individual vehicles rather then click click click ... click click click click, wouldnt it be nice ?
14:25:11 <Alberth> instead of setting a good default in advanced settings?
14:50:25 <Nite> one common default is good but does not always fit all vehicles in game.
14:54:19 *** Chris_Booth has joined #openttd
14:57:40 <Nite> it would also be quicker if you could hold the tiny buttons down and it would repeat, like holding a key on the keyboard
14:57:53 <Nite> either way it could be faster
14:58:03 <Nite> *busy*
14:59:29 <Alberth> opening a query window seems feasible, there is only one user-changable number in the widget. It's even quite trivial to do.
15:02:23 *** valhallasw has joined #openttd
15:05:18 <Nite> when i was doing strg+klick i expected the value change in hundreds but ... you know ...
15:05:49 <Nite> ... well then i guess someday someone will do that trivial task;)
15:07:04 <Nite> "GUI setting to disable reversing at signals" yeah! thank you! nice!°
15:08:25 <Alberth> changing values in hundreds is pretty useless if the default is less than 200 :)
15:08:41 <Alberth> (except for ships iirc)
15:09:20 <Nite> might be true - typing in for huge changes then would be reasonable.
15:09:31 <Nite> wait
15:09:46 <Nite> why is it useless if you want 720 for example
15:09:54 <Nite> anyway
15:10:45 <Nite> i also often want it off even when its on iun the sever settings and force or order depot stops thus i often need 800
15:11:10 <Nite> but some vehicles will still need aroubnd 150 and autoservice
15:11:47 <Nite> either way i put it, beeing able to set it faster woudl well be faster - nicer.
15:14:31 <andythenorth> cargo units for Alcohol?
15:14:34 <andythenorth> Pints?
15:14:37 <andythenorth> Litres?
15:14:38 <andythenorth> Units?
15:14:41 <andythenorth> Bottles?
15:15:06 <Nite> litres?
15:15:10 <planetmaker> ^
15:15:37 <planetmaker> whether I ship it in barrels or crates - what matters are still the litres shipped
15:15:48 <Nite> agree
15:15:54 <planetmaker> and the vehicle anyway decides what packaging is used
15:16:03 <andythenorth> ok
15:16:23 <Nite> bottels could be anything from 2cl to some magnum 20liters ...
15:16:39 <planetmaker> :-D
15:17:23 <planetmaker> and then down in one the 20l bottle :-P
15:17:25 *** supermop has joined #openttd
15:17:42 <Nite> so it does not descrbe how much you are actually carrying - only litres does that

15:27:19 <andythenorth> alcohol: worth more or less than food in a default economy
15:27:36 <Terkhen> depends on how bad it is :)
15:28:12 <andythenorth> "Finest wines"
15:28:19 <supermop> yeah, assuming alchohol taxes are not really relevant to a common carrier company,
15:28:23 <Terkhen> more expensive IMO
15:28:26 <supermop> I would say a little less?
15:28:50 <Nite> cya i'm off
15:28:53 *** Nite has left #openttd
15:29:02 <supermop> as the tax is added in at the retail phase rather than the mass production level?
15:29:05 <andythenorth> a pint of beer is worth more than a pint of milk
15:29:25 <andythenorth> slightly less then
15:29:30 <andythenorth> :P
15:29:49 <supermop> but most of the cost of that beer is tax
15:30:05 <supermop> rather than the cost to ship or make it relative to milk
15:30:13 <andythenorth> I'll do slightly less than food :)
15:30:19 <supermop> (also some governments subsidize milk)
15:31:45 <andythenorth> so who's writing code for the HQ to accept BEER?

15:33:08 <andythenorth> the default cargo payment rate graph background is low contrast :P
15:33:20 <andythenorth> it's a pleasing mid grey
15:33:32 <andythenorth> but I've run out of good colour choices for cargos on it

16:50:12 <Nite> is it major code changes?
16:50:40 <planetmaker> no ;-)

18:10:11 <frosch123> no, and it is not a good idea to hide them in general
18:10:46 <frosch123> but one could add an option to collapse them

19:52:39 <Nite> i did NOT mean the automaticorder display is buged
19:53:08 <Nite> its just logical that vehicles will find automatic stops while going back from a depot stop
19:53:37 <Nite> but do you want this ...
19:53:48 <Nite> stops nagging now :x
19:55:47 <Nite> i woudl say there are two phases; one where you plan and make your orders and do not want to see autoanything popping up, and anotherone where you watch how the orders work and want to see where autostops are done ...
19:56:36 <Alberth> I always add all stations to the order list
19:58:12 <Nite> even then trains might find a way to autostop - complex systems are fun
19:59:33 <Eddi|zuHause> not when you also use non-stop when assigning all orders anyway
19:59:58 <Eddi|zuHause> you can also use service at depot orders

20:07:45 <andythenorth>
20:07:54 <andythenorth> previous:
20:08:43 <Eddi|zuHause> i think it looked less tall with the intermediate level
20:08:44 <Alberth> the previous was more unique
20:09:01 <Eddi|zuHause> and what is the meaning of the gray block?
20:09:19 <Alberth> you already have many high round tuby things
20:09:19 <Eddi|zuHause> and is it gray or grey? i never remember right...
20:09:24 <andythenorth> the original:
20:09:35 <andythenorth> but there's no need to stick to RL
20:09:40 <andythenorth> it's whatever looks best in game...
20:10:04 <andythenorth> I think without the middle storey it just looks like a grain silo or whatever

20:38:21 <dihedral> frosch123, how could an engine all of a sudden not be associated with a grf anymore?
20:38:43 <frosch123> well, associated to a present grf
20:39:02 <planetmaker> andythenorth: wrt #6: the choote(? - how does one spell it?) looks a bit detached to me
20:39:10 <andythenorth> yeah
20:39:23 <andythenorth> the perils of posting work-in-progress :D
20:39:26 <frosch123> i.e. when grfs are missing, got removed, or incompatible
20:39:54 <dihedral> well, 'get removed' surely should not be the case :-P
20:40:16 <Eddi|zuHause> dihedral: what if the grf author said the grf must be incompatible with any release builds?
20:41:21 <Eddi|zuHause> dihedral: then, load a game from nightly in release -> grf gets deactivated

20:42:02 <dihedral> ah :-)
20:42:13 <dihedral> interesting - why should the savegame then at all load?
20:42:36 <Eddi|zuHause> dihedral: the savegame doesn't know that the grf will deactivate after loading
20:42:37 <dihedral> would that not render a savegame only compatible to that very version of openttd in combination of grf's?
20:42:44 <Eddi|zuHause> dihedral: it can only detect whether the grf is present
20:43:18 <dihedral> i thought OpenTTD would be able to detect that - if required grf were available, before loading
20:43:37 <dihedral> well - that is part of the loading process, ok :-P
20:43:56 <Eddi|zuHause> dihedral: "available" == "file with correct md5 is present". not "file is present and we can guarantee it won't execute an action B"
20:47:21 <Nite> searching for missing grfs worked for me befre flawlessly with a 1.0 savegame ... btw

21:17:49 <V453000> hello there, is the counting of train length in depots selectable in the 1.1.0 beta5?
21:18:00 <V453000> I mean, is it possible to swap it back to the original?
21:18:08 <Eddi|zuHause> no
21:18:21 <V453000> uhm
21:18:22 <V453000> okay
21:18:28 <planetmaker> nope. Is it needed?
21:18:35 <Eddi|zuHause> because counting halftiles is silly.
21:18:51 <Eddi|zuHause> it has no value whatsoever in gameplay
21:18:54 <andythenorth> it's good to practice maths :D
21:19:23 <SmatZ> halftiles are important for curves
21:19:23 <V453000> well, sometimes it is actually useful to have 4.5 tile trains
21:19:28 <V453000> and for curves
21:19:40 <planetmaker> 4 + wagon ;-)
21:19:49 <V453000> well, yes
21:20:03 <V453000> the original was just much more obvious :(
21:20:09 <SmatZ> with short vehicles, it's not that easy
21:20:11 <planetmaker> and the old system wasn't accurate either as the wagon lengths are in 1/8 quantiles and... a tile has 16/8 length
21:20:14 <Eddi|zuHause> show fractional values: 4 8/16 ;)
21:20:17 <SmatZ> sometimes it could even be 4+2 wagons
21:20:32 <V453000> ok, could I ask you to make it optional?
21:20:56 <Eddi|zuHause> should be possible to do.
21:21:34 <frosch123> then i would prefer to display something like "4 + 3/8" or similar
21:21:50 <V453000> that would be actually amazing, frosch :)
21:21:52 <frosch123> "4 + 3/16" actually
21:22:24 <Eddi|zuHause> that's what i said
21:23:13 <V453000> could you please implement that? :) I already experienced flaws even with the older one
21:23:31 <V453000> tropic refurbishment set had officially "4", but slowed down in some curves for 2tile trains
21:23:47 <V453000> with the iron ore wagons which obviousl have some weird length :)
21:23:49 <frosch123> it makes the number quite long tohugh
21:24:22 <V453000> well, that does indeed, but if you make it optional so anyone can change it as he likes, they cant really complain :)
21:26:02 <V453000> could even make it "4+3" and make the setting either hidden in cfg or heavily explained :p
21:26:47 <frosch123> the idea was to remove stupid settings
21:27:18 <V453000> that is a nice intention, but the halftile counter sometimes really helps a lot
21:27:44 <V453000> I understand that it confused some newbies ... I personally had no problems with it even when I started with openttd
21:28:05 <V453000> and when it counts every wagon with original trains, it makes much more sense in my opinion
21:28:41 *** Kurimus has quit IRC
21:30:42 <Eddi|zuHause> i agree with all your arguments, except the last one
21:30:53 <V453000> that is just a matter of taste I suppose :)
21:30:58 <Eddi|zuHause> the newbie will care about length of trains wrt length of station
21:31:23 <V453000> I just like that when I click something, the numbers change, so it is obvious I did something :) just some "gui preferrence"
21:31:47 <Rubidium> it didn't with the previous variant either
21:32:10 <Rubidium> reliably for every non 8/8 vehicle
21:33:55 <V453000> simply: Can I kindly ask you to make this an option one could select? Thank you
21:34:37 *** Pulec has joined #openttd
21:35:40 <planetmaker> what could be changed that roundup is used as that matters for stations
21:35:49 <planetmaker> (if it isn't used)
21:36:04 <Eddi|zuHause> i think it always rounds up already
21:36:04 <planetmaker> at least that it goes by the same thing as station penalty
21:44:17 <frosch123> <- looks stupid :p
21:46:27 <Eddi|zuHause> nah, always extend to /16
21:47:06 <frosch123> well, for normal vehicles length like 5 1/2 would be nice
21:47:23 <frosch123> but starting with /8 and /16 it gets bad :)
21:47:38 <Eddi|zuHause> hm. maybe. but remove the leading 0 then
21:48:11 <V453000> that looks pretty neat :)

21:53:17 <TruePikachu> Sorry about the join/quit
21:54:15 <Eddi|zuHause> frosch123: the problem with normalising fractions is that you can't easily compare the numbers in your head anymore. whether 3/4 is larger or smaller than 9/16
21:54:32 <TruePikachu> 3/4 is larger
21:55:12 <TruePikachu> But that is ovious because 9/16 is 3/4 squared, with both between 0 and 1
21:55:18 <TruePikachu> *obvious
21:55:33 <Alberth> the 'whole' part needs to be vertically aligned on its own
21:56:09 <Eddi|zuHause> alignment may be troublesome
21:56:10 <Alberth> TruePikachu: before you say more, please see
21:56:34 <TruePikachu> ...I literally just got OTTD restarted...
21:57:16 <ccfreak2k> Unitless numbers!

21:57:58 <planetmaker> ccfreak2k: [1] :-P
21:58:20 <Eddi|zuHause> ccfreak2k: the unit is tiles
21:59:09 <TruePikachu> Oh, I can see where you're coming from...
21:59:14 <planetmaker> last week I saw a marvel where units were written, but nicely ignored - with the result that the Power was written in m/s

22:00:23 <TruePikachu> I actually would advocate for 3 decimal places, but w/e
22:00:24 <Alberth> Eddi|zuHause: how is alignment troublesome? "/16" is fixed, so you need enough width for 0..15 and a bit white space

23:16:47 <SmatZ> hmm no, not in known-bugs.txt, it seems
23:17:04 <planetmaker> but I remember well that we established it as compiler bug
23:17:27 <SmatZ> readme.txt
23:17:30 <SmatZ> - GNU Compiler Collection (GCC) 3.3 - 4.6.
23:17:32 <SmatZ> Versions 4.1 and earlier give bogus warnings about uninitialised variables.
23:17:33 <__ln__> it certainly looks like the warning is not true.
23:18:30 <planetmaker> maybe it should be added to the known-bugs.txt? As old(er) osx can't work around that
23:19:33 <SmatZ> it's in readme.txt , in the "Compiling" section

23:20:40 <planetmaker> it's rather an indicator than a blocker
23:21:02 <planetmaker> and mostly SDL was / is broken. An update to SDL solved parts of it
23:21:26 <__ln__> i very well know what the bug is about
23:22:01 <__ln__> "Issues prefixed with [OSX] are required to be fixed before we consider officially supporting Mac OS X again. For now it remains unsupported and

23:22:24 <__ln__> - 3447[OSX] SDL port is unuseable"
23:22:50 <__ln__> it doesn't make any fucking sense in that context.
23:23:33 <planetmaker> Then add "[OSX] Cursor visibility issues with PPC builds" instead

23:39:16 <__ln__> frosch123: yes, that summarizes everything very nicely
23:39:21 <SmatZ> frosch123: :D
23:39:30 <planetmaker> :-P
23:39:37 <ABCRic> xD
23:39:38 <__ln__> SmatZ: but it is, on OS X. you'll have to go through trouble to enable it.

23:40:35 <Wazz> Hey, guys! I'm playing OpenTTD with my friends, and we're playing the tropical setting in the '70s
23:40:35 <planetmaker> if you can tell me why my re-structuring of the video drivers broke ppc and fixes intel, I'd be very glad to hear :-)
23:40:44 <planetmaker> congratulations, wazz
23:40:45 <Wazz> There are only like 3 train car types! What's wrong?
23:40:46 <planetmaker> :-)
23:40:50 <Wazz> planetmaker: ;-)
23:41:34 <planetmaker> Wazz: any newgrfs?
23:41:39 <Wazz> Nope
23:41:49 <Wazz> Well, only one that I have downloaded, but I haven't applied it
23:42:00 <__ln__> SmatZ: i think it's good that 3447 is there and it can be shown to the occasional persons who come saying SDL should be used on OSX. but what bothers me is that that bug gets so much attention by people who do not realize the "unusable"-state is completely irrelevant in practice.
23:42:10 *** DayDreamer has quit IRC
23:42:27 <planetmaker> did you change any newgrfs on the map (remove)?
23:42:46 <Wazz> I don't think so
23:42:50 <planetmaker> i.e. can you provide a savegame?
23:43:37 <SmatZ> __ln__: sorry, I don't know much about that OSX stuff :-x
23:43:56 <SmatZ> I just know there have been various problems with it
23:43:58 <Wazz> planetmaker: I'll save the game and consult it with my friend taking this into consideration :-) I'll get back to you in a bit!
23:44:13 <ABCRic> __ln__: then change it to "[OSX] [unimportant] SDL port is unuseable" :P
23:44:53 <SmatZ> also I think adding anything to the bug summary is not needed
23:45:10 <SmatZ> "[OSX] SDL port is unuseable" is true
23:45:41 <Eddi|zuHause> __ln__: well, technically it is a blocker for maintaining OSX, since because of SDL being unusable there is OSX specific code needed, but there is no OSX-specific maintainer
23:45:50 <planetmaker> for certain definitions of 'unusable' ;-)
23:46:19 <planetmaker> it's quite usuable for 'surprises'
23:46:45 <frosch123> night
23:46:50 *** frosch123 has quit IRC
23:48:00 <ABCRic> 'night all
23:48:05 *** ABCRic has quit IRC
23:48:07 <Wazz> planetmaker: That was it! Thanks! I've downloaded one set a friend's told me about, and I had it on the NewGRF's list, thinking it's going to ADD that set to the default set, but it's been replacing them! Thanks :-)
23:49:18 <__ln__> Eddi|zuHause: that is quite a good argument, assuming it's on the roadmap that OSX-specific code should be replaced with possibly less optimal SDL.
23:49:23 *** Chris_Booth has joined #openttd
23:49:31 <planetmaker> you're welcome, Wazz
23:49:37 <Wazz> :-)
23:50:03 <Eddi|zuHause> __ln__: well, calling it "roadmap" might be exaggerated :p
23:52:31 <__ln__> performance is some kind of an issue with the current OSX video implementation written by smart people and Bjarni. it would be quite optimistic to assume that adding a new level of abstraction in between would not make the performance worse.
23:52:45 <Eddi|zuHause> __ln__: it's just a fact that OSX specific code causes the highest OS-specific maintenance. just count the linux-specific commits and the windows-specific commits in comparison [with or without 'MSVC complains more than GCC' commits]
23:55:38 <perk111> It's just the fact Mac=Evil
23:55:46 <__ln__> Eddi|zuHause: might very well be true
23:56:23 *** goblin has quit IRC
23:57:17 <Eddi|zuHause> perk111: please don't turn this into a religious discussion. there are enough real facts.
23:57:37 <perk111> I was not going to
23:58:12 *** Vikthor has quit IRC
23:58:22 <planetmaker> Eddi|zuHause: point is also: all developers save me use either windows or linux. Thus everything they commit is automatically tested for their OS - and doesn't show as specific anywhere
23:58:54 <planetmaker> so this clearly must lead to a bias.
23:58:58 <__ln__> during the existence of OpenTTD there have been three new Mac OS X versions and a change of processor architecture. only two new Windows versions during that time.
23:59:05 <perk111> Mac is gaining popularity, but not among devs
