04:48:17 <DorpsGek> [OpenTTD/OpenTTD] rubidium42 merged pull request #11058: Codechange: simplify string formatting for the viewport
05:01:38 <Rubidium_> peter1138: no, not really. Either go the way with std::vector<StringParameterBackup> (#11052) or if it isn't really that likely that you change something in the dropdown by just formatting to std::string (#11058)
05:02:38 <k-man> what have i done wrong with my signals here? the top right train won't enter the station:
05:08:25 *** olionkey[d] has joined #openttd
05:08:25 <olionkey[d]>
05:08:25 <olionkey[d]> This isn't right. Right?
05:09:41 <Rubidium_> peter1138: a relatively thoroug check of the code doesn't give me the idea that there are multiple places where you conceivably want to change the string in a dropdown. I was thinking about the company list, but that seems to have its own DropDownListItem. So, maybe the story book page list? I'm assuming you change the language with clicking on the dropdown, so there isn't any dropdown open
05:12:38 <ahyangyi> andythenorth: If it works, it's Iron Horse; if it doesn't, it's Irony Horse
05:12:53 <Rubidium_> k-man: maybe the track isn't electrified (for a short bit)? or the vehicle is stopped?
05:15:11 <k-man> ooh
05:16:10 <k-man> good theory, but didn't fix it
05:18:15 <k-man> oh i think the trains were just in stopped mode for some resaon
05:40:47 <k-man> is there some way to save and quit without prompting for anything?
05:46:52 <jfs> Not really, no.
05:46:52 <jfs> You can depend on the autosave and just kill the game from the OS but that's an entirely different hassle
05:57:00 <iqTop[m]> <talltyler> "`how can you put so much..." <- Okay, I'm an idiot for not logging out of my banned account all this time, but not that dumb. Yeah, there's a setting for plane crashes, not sure why they didn't just ask if there was before asking for a "new feature".
06:13:23 <Rubidium_> iqTop[m]: the point is that the "nonsense" that is talked about was given in a post that quotes the post that says there is a setting to disable crashes. So, the person knows (has quoted) the fact that there is a setting to disable crashes, and then continues on with that it is impossible to play (multiplayer) without plane crashes.
06:14:13 <iqTop[m]> Rubidium_: That... is way worse, yeah.
06:16:13 <Rubidium_> suggesting there to be a setting to disable plane crashes (or something along the line) is not necessarily non-sense, maybe just a "sigh, why didn't you look through the existing settings" sentiment. But continueing to proclaim something cannot be done after you have been made aware of the setting, that's more like "cannot comprehend it is possible, and will continue in the train of thought that it is
06:16:19 <Rubidium_> impossible"
06:25:30 <peter1138> Hmm, prerendering (to std::string) and then skipping the string system feels a bit wrong, but is probably ultimately simpler and more efficient.
06:26:52 <peter1138> I like that we already have a dropdown item that takes a std::string, but it's called, and documented, as a C string...
06:39:36 <Rubidium_> the question is: how wrong is it? Will the place in the UI survive changing languages/fonts? Is there anything that could change the strings? If so, does that trigger the dropdown to layout again in case the text got longer, or is that a bug/oversight?
06:40:40 <peter1138> As far as I know, anything you might do that could change the content of dropdowns would also close the dropdown anyway.
06:41:13 <Rubidium_> now I think of it... tooltips could probably also just prerender the string as I doubt you want the tooltip to change mid-showing
06:44:59 <Rubidium_> news and text effects can survive changing the language, so they should not be (always) prerendered. The strings on the viewport will be prerendered, as the only reason for them to change between creating and drawing is UI and game logic running in parallel which would probably end badly
07:09:52 *** keikoz has quit IRC (Ping timeout: 480 seconds)
07:10:19 <truebrain> so all instances of the game-coordinator decided to stop working? Now that is interesting .. πŸ˜›
07:12:13 <truebrain> they are both alive and kicking .. lol
07:13:08 <truebrain> owh boy, AWS decided to make a change in the lambda handlers ..
07:13:54 <truebrain> `import json ..... json.dumps` AAHHH CRASH BURN JSON DOESNT EXIST
07:13:56 <truebrain> wth?
07:14:56 * iqTop[m] uploaded an image: (24KiB) < >
07:14:56 * iqTop[m] uploaded an image: (22KiB) < >
07:15:00 <iqTop[m]> So, um... Can someone give me an opinion on these glowy but not-so-well-done "futuristic roadtypes" I made?
07:19:30 <truebrain> odd, the NLB notices there are no upstream instance to handle traffic, but ECS says they are alive and kicking ...
07:20:17 <peter1138> Hmm, dropdown lists with company names can't prerender as the name could change.
07:20:19 <truebrain> one of the two is lying πŸ˜›
07:20:28 <truebrain> the NLB is not the one that is lying ... time to cycle the instances
07:20:33 <peter1138> (But the precalculated width will be wrong)
07:23:14 <Rubidium_> precalculated width of what would be wrong? Why?
07:24:37 <peter1138> When you open one of the main toolbar menus with a company list, the list width is calculated to fit the longest company name. So if a company is added/removed/renamed while the list is still open, the width is going to be wrong.
07:24:42 <peter1138> (Nothing new here)
07:25:23 <Rubidium_> ah, I wasn't thinking about that toolbar "now" as that has its own fully custom code
07:26:25 <truebrain> hmm .. no, the NLB is to blame ... do I even want to know why? Ugh ..
07:26:42 <truebrain> `botocore.errorfactory.InvalidParameterException: An error occurred (InvalidParameterException) when calling the DescribeTasks operation: Tasks cannot be empty.`
07:26:49 <truebrain> well, clearly it can
07:26:53 <truebrain> wth do you want me to do!
07:28:49 <truebrain> there we go .. now the NLB knows where to find things again
07:28:51 <truebrain> silly NLB
07:29:08 <truebrain> and PLOP, the whole server listing is populated again
07:29:10 <peter1138> Hmm, according to Microsoft and nVidia, WSLg should support acceleration. Alas, not for me 😦
07:29:38 <truebrain> I was surprised it did work for me
07:29:44 <truebrain> didn't work for months
07:29:49 <truebrain> but after a recent update, it all of a sudden does
07:30:32 <truebrain> emperorjake: Tnx for letting us know πŸ™‚ All fixed again!
07:31:12 <truebrain> and clearly they are just begging to be migrated to the new infra too .. but that is for next week
07:33:56 <pickpacket> Can someone help me interpret this cmake output? I have libcurl4 installed. What more do I need? O.o
07:34:42 <truebrain> you running an i386? How does that even work? πŸ˜›
07:35:10 <peter1138> Are you missing the -dev part of it?
07:36:00 <truebrain> something like `libcurl4-openssl-dev`, depending on your OS
07:36:36 <truebrain> so I removed this massive amount of files from the S3 bucket yesterday, right? Now AWS measures every day how big your bucket is .. and it just says: nah, nothing changed
07:36:59 <truebrain> at least on Cloudflare you can see at any moment in time how big your bucket is .. instead of waiting for a new measurement that LIES IN YOUR FACE 😦
07:43:12 <pickpacket> libcurl4-openssl-dev is available. I'll install that. Thanks :) I have a 32 bit Atom processor
07:43:19 <pickpacket> And it works *very* well, actually
07:43:27 <truebrain> you don't see that a lot anymore
07:43:44 <pickpacket> nope! It was a budget machine when I bought it back in 2015
07:45:10 <DorpsGek> [OpenTTD/OpenTTD] PeterN opened pull request #11063: Codechange: Make DropDownListStringItem preformat and remove other implementations.
07:45:39 <peter1138> Didn't we determine that it is actually a 64 bit Atom, but just a 32 bit OS?
07:46:29 <peter1138> Well, #11063 escalated a bit from "oh, decode_params isn't properly initialised" to "yeet it all"
07:47:23 <truebrain> rabbitholes in OpenTTD? NEVAH
07:47:25 <pickpacket> peter1138: it doesn't boot with a 64 bit OS though 🀷
07:48:08 <pickpacket> I don't believe lscpu for it... It claims that it's a quadcore cpu, and that's simply impossible
07:48:29 <peter1138> That's common for dual-core with hyperthreading enabled.
07:48:46 <peter1138> Well, "common", no, actually normal.
07:48:50 <pickpacket> that's true
07:49:45 <peter1138> Of course hyperthreading reveals a bug that can expose data, meh.

07:50:47 <truebrain> `failed to create R2 bucket: The bucket you tried to create already exists, and you own it.`
07:50:48 <truebrain> rude
07:51:11 <peter1138> Heh
07:54:35 <peter1138> Hmm, opening the settings window has a noticable pause. I assume it's from loading all the strings for each setting to determine how big windows need to be.

08:32:07 <pickpacket> I compiled 13.3 just the other day and can't remember seeing these warnings then. Are those deps new or was I just not paying attention?

10:17:43 *** zerokek has joined #openttd
10:18:23 <truebrain> (basically, it wasn't updating where instances were located .. so it was forwarding traffic to nothingness)
10:18:57 <truebrain> what is a bit ironic, it was broker for more than a week, but as instances rarely crash or are restarted, the old data the NLB had was fine .. it was only till all instances had crashed, that it went offline πŸ™‚
10:19:08 <truebrain> shows how stable the software is πŸ˜„
10:23:13 <peter1138> Hmm
10:32:15 <peter1138> Just not quite stable enough πŸ™‚
10:33:02 <peter1138> So the font I am using causes something to slow down. Possibly the layouter but I thought those got cached.
10:40:29 <peter1138>
10:40:29 <peter1138>
10:41:47 <Rubidium_> yeah... that seems noticably :D
10:42:55 <Rubidium_> looks like the end of the 's'-es is missing a bit; some off-by-one error somewhere?
10:45:06 <peter1138> I don't see what you mean.
10:45:29 <peter1138> Oh in the DejaVu Sans one. Hmm.
10:46:00 <Rubidium_> it's quite noticable in the second image, not that much in the first image
10:47:20 <peter1138>
10:47:20 <peter1138> Usual trick, the width of the string doesn't include space for shadows.
10:47:28 <peter1138> I'd forgotten about the one tbh πŸ™‚
10:47:35 <peter1138> *that one
10:48:25 <peter1138> With the sprite font, the shadow is baked in and the extra width provides the spacing between characters.
10:49:11 <peter1138> With truetype, it's 1) not baked in, and 2) the width and spacing is provided by the font and layouter, so just including it would space things out too much.
10:50:21 <peter1138> But we already have compensation to provide extra vertical space when setting up cropping for text.
10:50:27 <peter1138> Maybe we need the same for horizontal.
10:50:48 <peter1138> But none of this is the performance issue I'm seeing πŸ™‚
10:54:52 <peter1138>
10:54:52 <peter1138> Fairly simple I guess.
10:55:08 <peter1138> It means it's technically overflowing its widget though, but maybe that's okay.
10:55:31 <peter1138> There may even be a GH issue about this one.

11:03:58 <LordAro> oh?
11:04:22 <peter1138> Hmm, plan, try the same font in Windows.
11:08:29 <peter1138> Yeah, no issue there, although truetype font rendering is measurably slower than sprite font, but not anywhere near a problem.
11:09:53 <peter1138> Hmm, maybe it's breakfast time

16:26:21 <andythenorth> I can't think of any other things considered cheating
16:26:44 <andythenorth> ctrl-click stations, along with use of ships, RVs and planes were the main ones
16:26:58 <andythenorth> oh, piglet?
16:27:08 <andythenorth> or was that a valid meta?
16:27:10 <Eddi|zuHause> plane speed setting is cheating
16:27:19 <andythenorth> were escape depots cheating, or meta?
16:27:21 <peter1138> Now they just consider PBS "lazy"
16:27:34 <andythenorth> 'they' = one person with bizarre views on reddit
16:27:40 <andythenorth> and reddit is off so eh
16:27:55 <peter1138> "Nothing of value was lost" πŸ™‚
16:28:42 <peter1138> That reminds me, time to manually delete more reddit comments that slowly come back.

16:38:19 <ahyangyi> andythenorth: I'm just curious, what's the piglet?
16:38:31 <ahyangyi> ( besides meaning "baby pig" in normal English )
16:41:27 <andythenorth> I can't find a reference on google
16:41:48 <andythenorth> but it's a single RV at a station which just cycles around a loop doing load / unload
16:41:57 <andythenorth> it keeps station ratings high
16:43:00 <Eddi|zuHause> didn't HEQS specifically add the forklift for that purpose?
16:43:26 <dP> andythenorth: aka rating pushing
16:43:37 <dP> first time I see it called piglet though
16:45:07 <andythenorth>
16:45:53 <andythenorth> original source is dead πŸ˜›
16:46:04 <pickpacket> Eddi|zuHause: the only thing that isn't cheating is vanilla with default settings, OpenGFX, OpenFSX, and OpenMSX. No NewGRFs.
16:46:23 <Eddi|zuHause> vanilla has plenty of cheating
16:46:24 <andythenorth> oh here we go 2002 πŸ™‚
16:46:30 <andythenorth> vanilla is all cheating
16:46:33 <andythenorth> especially in MP
16:46:48 <andythenorth> what was the depot crash thing?
16:47:17 <Eddi|zuHause> you put the depot at the end of a competitors line, and build a train that crashes into the competitor train
16:47:29 <pickpacket> Eddi|zuHause: you're right. Playing the game is cheating
16:47:31 <andythenorth> so "infrastructure sharing"
16:47:57 <Eddi|zuHause> somewhat... you can't actually enter their tile, but the overlap is enough to cause the crash
16:48:11 <Eddi|zuHause> (this has been disabled now)
16:49:05 <peter1138> There's still some tile-end issues though πŸ™‚
16:50:18 <Eddi|zuHause> anyway, the original AI never actually replaced the crashed trains
16:51:00 *** keikoz has quit IRC ()
16:58:55 <pickpacket> My new trains show up at the top of the available trains list with the default sorting πŸ€” Anything I can do about that?
16:59:43 <jfs> are you manually assigning vehicle IDs to them in your NML or NFO?
16:59:56 <DorpsGek> [OpenTTD/OpenTTD] npabisz closed issue #11062: [Bug]: Raw string in game script
17:00:05 <pickpacket> jfs: no
17:00:16 <jfs> then give them some IDs!
17:01:37 <andythenorth> the nml auto-id is a misfeature πŸ™‚
17:01:44 <andythenorth> it cannot end well
17:02:59 <Eddi|zuHause> pickpacket: there's a sort "function" in nml, where you can put in the default trains and your trains
17:19:07 <pickpacket> Eddi|zuHause: thanks :) I’ll look it up
17:19:32 <pickpacket> Btw the topic in the irc channel still says ”13.1”
17:19:39 <Eddi|zuHause> it works a bit weird, because the underlying NFO feature is even weirder

18:41:37 <DorpsGek> [OpenTTD/OpenTTD] eints-sync[bot] pushed 1 commits to master
18:41:38 <DorpsGek> - Update: Translations from eints (by translators)
18:46:54 <andythenorth> played my game for 130 years
18:46:58 <andythenorth> might be time for a new one
19:13:11 <peter1138> Hmm, need to undo a couple of translations
19:15:36 <peter1138> Or even just fix some.
19:29:02 <andythenorth> let's try Async GS
19:29:21 <andythenorth> without it, on a 512x512 map with 'high towns' monthly town processing appears to never complete
19:29:33 <andythenorth> which is expected ish
19:30:03 *** Wormnest has joined #openttd
19:35:27 <andythenorth> not sure how to use GSAsyncMode
19:35:57 <andythenorth>
19:36:33 <andythenorth> GS appears to stay in Async after the function exits, even though the mode object is local to the function
19:37:00 <andythenorth> if I try setting `local asyncmode = GSAsyncMode(false);` at the end of the function, GS errors
19:37:54 <andythenorth> presumably I don't want to just put the script in async permanently?
19:52:15 <andythenorth> can't see a way to read the current mode
19:53:34 <DorpsGek> [OpenTTD/OpenTTD] masterofobzene commented on issue #10693: [Bug]: Dedicated server disconnecting from game coordinator all the time
19:54:12 <LordAro> yeah, get told
19:59:48 <andythenorth> hmm maybe this Async is fine
19:59:54 <andythenorth> maybe it's just _that much_ faster
20:00:12 <LordAro> fast until it isn't?
20:01:14 <andythenorth> no it really is fast
20:01:26 <andythenorth> I was confused, it's so much faster I thought my script was broken
20:06:09 <andythenorth> probably don't want to build industries in Async mode
20:12:35 <peter1138> Isn't it still limited or is that just as a network server?
20:13:47 <andythenorth> seems quite unlimited in SP
20:14:01 <andythenorth> I don't have a reliable way to tell when the async jobs actually complete
20:14:07 <andythenorth> but the storybook is updating quickly
20:14:34 <Eddi|zuHause> one would assume the async commands complete on next tick
20:17:17 <truebrain> lol, do we need to slow down SP for async too? πŸ˜›
20:25:29 <peter1138> Well it'll be limited by the op-code limit anyway.
20:28:44 <andythenorth> some kind of timing tool perhaps?
20:52:13 <jfs> I haven't looked much into the async GS thing, but is/would it be possible to ask the async mode object for a kind of cookie for the last invoked command, and later on ask for the command result associated with that cookie?
20:52:46 <jfs> (perhaps have some kind of timeout on how long a command result is stored)
21:13:53 <andythenorth> things with no map effect...

22:06:17 *** gelignite has quit IRC (Quit: Stay safe!)
22:16:59 <Eddi|zuHause> well, if you try to do things with map effect, they might fail because the map changed inbetween
22:17:19 <Eddi|zuHause> and you'll never find out about it failing or working
