00:02:21  <luckzeh> are vehics supposed to be capable of overtaking others that broke down?
00:02:24  <luckzeh> omg he suicided :/
00:03:09  <Eddi|zuHause> road vehicles can overtake on straight roads

00:04:19  <luckzeh> yes, but they can't do that on roads uphill for an example, or so it seems in my game.
00:04:34  <luckzeh> kinda nasty when the first car of about fifteen breaks down at the end of a tunnel :p
00:04:47  <luckzeh> is there a table when which airport is available?
00:04:59  <Eddi|zuHause> yeah, "straight" seems to be a little strict
00:05:30  <Eddi|zuHause> i would look in table/*.h
00:06:35  <luckzeh> would adding availability years to the airport gui be information overload?
00:07:49  <Eddi|zuHause> probably yes...
00:08:06  <Eddi|zuHause> such "advanced" information is rather suited for the wiki
00:08:14  <luckzeh> mhm-.
00:08:42  <luckzeh> in 2014, for the 20th anniversary, the wiki will be accessible ingame ;)

00:13:12  <Eddi|zuHause> feel free to implement a wiki interface ;)
00:14:47  <luckzeh> why do I want to build an airplane with 48% max reliability? :x
00:15:24  <Eddi|zuHause> because you don't bother and switch breakdowns off? ;)
00:15:55  <Eddi|zuHause> or: to increase its max. reliability

00:16:21  <luckzeh> it will get more happy if I feed it cookies?
00:18:37  <Eddi|zuHause> definitely ;)
00:18:46  <luckzeh> btw, it's kinda sad that the realistic accel patch for cars turns them into snails
00:18:52  <luckzeh> not that they were unprofitable snails.
00:19:34  <luckzeh> ..now I got a service subsidy, somehow. apparently people decided to promote a route I have already been doing for twenty years.
00:21:31  <luckzeh> I also dont know why I even bother to build non-electric tracks

00:27:09  <luckzeh> first they have a lot of recent mainstream-compatible metal/hard rock videos in a row, with very few commercial breaks, and it's actually pretty much like they're trying to be a music channel.
00:28:37  <luckzeh> and now, a show called top25 offers me a mix of moderatly old bad rap and somewhat good pop.
00:29:10  <luckzeh> but now everything is full of screenspam again. and I'll surely get to endure ten ringtone commercials in a row in three minutes.

08:31:11  <Rubidium> it says your appaling
08:31:29  <DesktopMan> is there a way to remove all threading easily?
08:32:00  <Rubidium> disable saving
08:32:15  <DesktopMan> is there a define for that somewhere?
08:32:24  * DesktopMan is just getting to know the code
08:32:27  <Rubidium> no.. however..
08:33:13  <Rubidium> you might try not spawning a thread in thread.c and modify the other functions so it behaves properly
08:33:20  <Rubidium> though I'm not sure that will work
08:33:30  <Rubidium> and why would you want to disable threading?
08:34:01  <DesktopMan> because I doubt it works. I'm porting to DS
08:34:36  <Rubidium> check thread.c and especially line 7-10

08:36:11  <Rubidium> I've got no tips, but maybe you can look at the memory pools
08:36:32  <Rubidium> for town, vehicles, stations etc.
08:36:37  <DesktopMan> yeah will do
08:36:45  <DesktopMan> www.auby.no/openttd.jpg
08:36:55  <DesktopMan> it gets that far, but runs out of memory if I start a game.
08:37:13  <Rubidium> how much memory does it have?
08:37:24  <DesktopMan> 4 mbyte
08:37:41  <DesktopMan> but it uses about 800 kbyte for binary
08:38:36  <Rubidium> have you tried with a 64x64 map?
08:39:04  <DesktopMan> yeah same thing
08:39:10  <DesktopMan> so it's really close at boot
08:39:33  <Kjetil> There is some standard things you can reduse. Max number of vehicles and stuff like that
08:39:56  <Kjetil> But I doubt you will get it runing on 4mb
08:40:06  <Rubidium> that doesn't reduce the initial size of the memorypools AFAIK
08:40:17  <DesktopMan> are there any data that would do fine on a 16 bit bus?
08:40:32  <DesktopMan> I can use external memory, but it's 16/32 bit write only
08:42:18  <DesktopMan> oh, and since it goes to the menu, do the bg game always run? or does it only run if the menu covers less than all of the screen
08:42:23  <Kjetil> Are you going to try running openttd on a 486 ?
08:42:38  <DesktopMan> no a Nintendo DS
08:42:42  <DesktopMan> and it runs to menu
08:42:42  <Kjetil> ok
08:43:03  <Rubidium> yes, but it does not need to load the sprites of the game as you won't see them
08:43:16  <DesktopMan> how much does it cache?
08:43:21  <Rubidium> maybe you can look at the caching of those sprites
08:43:22  <DesktopMan> all of it?
08:43:26  <Rubidium> I've got no idea
08:43:45  <Rubidium> maybe 1MB or so
08:44:08  <DesktopMan> yeah that would kill it.

09:01:05  <DesktopMan> hmm, no matter how much of the level I show it allocs too much
09:01:09  <DesktopMan> even if it's just a strip of 32 pixels
09:01:27  <DesktopMan> so there must be some kind of alocation that takes place when graphics first appear
09:05:06  <Rubidium> then I'm out of suggestions/ideas
09:05:19  <CIA-5> truelight * r5726 /branches/TGP/window.h:
09:05:19  <CIA-5> [TGP] -Fix: r5724 increased the size of querystr_d, which is included by network_ql_d, which now went over the 88 bytes on 64bit systems. Increased to next possible size: 96.
09:05:19  <CIA-5> [TGP] -Fix: querystr_d was never compile-time checked if it fits in the custom size.
09:11:45  <DesktopMan> hmm it dies at "Out of sprite memory" in spritecache.c
09:14:32  <DesktopMan> if I put all files on a memory mapped device instead, none would have to be cached or read
09:14:36  <DesktopMan> I might have to do that
09:15:05  <DesktopMan> fread etc just returning a pointer to it
09:16:49  <Bjarni> 	<DesktopMan>	is there a define for that somewhere? <-- windows95 or something do not support threaded saving, so I guess it got a define there to disable it... I just don't know where
09:17:14  <Bjarni> I never really bothered to look for it as I always considered threaded saving a good thing and it works
09:17:19  <DesktopMan> :)
09:18:30  <Bjarni> actually it's a runtime "define" since it's a common exe file for all versions of windows, so I guess it's an if or flag somewhere
09:18:53  <DesktopMan> righto
09:19:52  <Bjarni> well, that's my guess. To be sure, either read the code or ask Darkvater when he shows up. I can remember that he used to work on threaded saving
09:20:08  <Bjarni> but why would you want to unthread the game?
09:20:21  <DesktopMan> as I said, threads arn't too happy on Nintendo DS
09:20:22  <DesktopMan> :)
09:20:25  <Bjarni> ahh
09:20:34  <hylje> :p
09:20:45  <hylje> someone really ported ottd to ds?
09:20:54  <DesktopMan> it doesn't run ingame yet
09:20:59  <Bjarni> you likely said that before I got online today
09:21:03  <DesktopMan> ah

09:21:39  <DesktopMan> yeah

09:21:55  <hylje> memory conserving magic
09:21:56  <hylje> ftw
09:22:07  <Bjarni> well, so far you are doing great progress compared to the former guy, who tried to port to DS
09:22:18  <peter1138> heh
09:22:40  <Bjarni> it took him like an hour to figure out that he needed to use the sdl headers to make his sdl lib work
09:22:51  <hylje> hah
09:25:01  <Bjarni> http://www.qdb.us/56571 <-- this is the result of the first attempt :D
09:25:31  <DesktopMan> I might have to do something ugly, like decompress all files
09:25:42  <DesktopMan> and build a binary out of them, then return plain pointers
09:25:46  <peter1138> hmm
09:26:05  <hylje> Bjarni: paste that quote to priv since im on my 9300
09:26:12  <DesktopMan> it would atleast eliminate any sprite cache and file reads

09:28:22  <DesktopMan> I might ditch those for the time beeing
09:28:36  <peter1138> samples.cat
09:28:44  <peter1138> you can make it a zero byte file
09:28:47  <DesktopMan> so it was obvious.
09:28:48  <DesktopMan> P
09:28:56  <peter1138> then it'll still work, with no sounds
09:29:07  <DesktopMan> files without sample.cat are about 3 mbyte
09:29:10  <DesktopMan> err, 4 mbyte
09:29:16  <peter1138> i don't think you'd need to decompress the graphics files
09:29:17  <DesktopMan> they can't be larger than 32 mbyte uncompressed can they?
09:29:35  <DesktopMan> then I'd have to decompress on draw
09:29:41  <DesktopMan> which wouldn't be very fast
09:29:52  <peter1138> that's what it does
09:30:03  <DesktopMan> the cache caches uncompressed doesn't it
09:30:07  <DesktopMan> it seems to be doing both
09:30:07  <peter1138> they're not "compressed" as such
09:30:25  <peter1138> no
09:30:31  <peter1138> the sprite cache literally just caches it
