00:35:40  <jordi> blathijs: hey
00:35:57  <jordi> so, I was wonderign why Ubuntu wasn't picking our Debian package.
00:36:12  <jordi> and a few questions later,
00:39:30  <Sacro> ooh
00:39:33  <Sacro> an Ubuntu package

00:42:31  <jordi> yeah
00:42:49  <jordi> it seems I had to push the right buttons, it's not entirely automatic for non-"main" packages

07:57:12  <Noldo> does constructing waypoint cost money?
07:58:23  <stillunknown> Noldo: I think so, why wouldn't it cost money?
07:58:40  <Noldo> I just had an unsure feeling about it
07:59:25  <Phazorx> hylje you remember PS37 bug, reversing trains longer than station?

08:45:46  <Noldo> I wonder why SubtractMoneyFromAnyPlayer(...) is static
08:49:21  <Bjarni> maybe because it's only called from one file? :)
08:49:44  <Bjarni> use static whenever possible. It helps the linker
08:51:17  <Noldo> hmm
08:53:20  <Noldo> it is called from that file yes, but there is a need in one place elsewhere
08:55:01  <Bjarni> are you sure?
08:55:46  <Noldo> and the need is removed by some nice tricery of temporarily assinging the _current_player global to something else
08:55:58  <Bjarni> if you need it in another file (in your patch), then consider if you decided on the right design, if you really need it and if so, remove the static if you have to
08:56:01  <Noldo> and then using SubtractMoneyFromPlayer function
08:57:27  <Noldo> well it's just a little thing and has nothing to with the thing I'm really doing
08:57:39  <ln-> why wouldn't you too temporarily assign something to _current_player.
08:57:42  <Bjarni> if it's unrelated, you shouldn't touch it
08:57:50  <Bjarni> at least not in the same diff
08:59:22  <Bjarni> actually I think it's a good idea to keep SubtractMoneyFromAnyPlayer() within a well defined area of the code. We wouldn't want a bug in say roadveh_cmd.cpp to take money from the wrong player
08:59:42  <Noldo> true
09:00:34  <Bjarni> right now roadveh_cmd.cpp works on current player being set when calling commands or by v->owner.... kind of tricky to mess that up
09:00:57  <Bjarni> I mean to mess it up unintentionally
09:08:36  <Bjarni> hmm
09:08:55  <Bjarni> maybe SubtractMoneyFromAnyPlayer() should be a private function in the player struct...
09:09:10  <Bjarni> but this was coded when it was C only and it works
09:10:31  <Bjarni> well, at least SubtractMoneyFromAnyPlayer() could do with an enum... it's full of magic numbers
09:10:32  <stillunknown> Bjarni: why was m7 put in a seperate struct?
09:11:07  <Bjarni> err
09:11:14  <Bjarni> good question
09:11:50  <Bjarni> I guess it could be some memory management so it's made like that in order not to waste memory while keeping it at a high speed
09:11:57  <Bjarni> high speed access, that is
09:12:50  <stillunknown> So, i did remember correctly, was unsure.
09:12:57  <Bjarni> if I recall correctly, the struct is optimised for 32 bit CPUs... adding m7 would waste a lot of memory because then the struct's total size wouldn't be a multiply of 32 bits
09:13:23  <Bjarni> you can check this very easily... is the struct a multiply of 4 bytes :)
09:13:28  <stillunknown> it would have become 10 or 12 bytes iirc
09:13:47  <stillunknown>
09:14:23  <Bjarni> besides it doesn't matter much as the code shouldn't access it directly anyway and it's not that tricky to ensure that the access functions can deal with this correctly
09:14:55  <stillunknown> Bjarni: Do you know why most people here are very wary of community made patches?
09:15:23  <Bjarni> efficient memory is important if the game should keep working on old hardware or small devices like PSP
09:16:07  <stillunknown> Is that the anser to my last question?
09:16:15  <Bjarni> no
09:17:16  <Bjarni> it's really time consuming to read somebody else's diff files and understand them. Usually it doesn't stop there because a fair amount of them are crap, some needs improvements and only a few can be committed unmodified
09:18:21  <stillunknown> Bjarni: have you seen the hashmap improvement patch? (does it stand a chance?)
09:18:22  <Bjarni> if we just accepted them without the time consuming parts, then our code would become really unstable and much harder to read
09:19:10  <Bjarni> I didn't read it, but I think it has a good chance of getting added whenever it's completely done. Last time I checked, it still lacked a bit of work
09:19:19  <Bjarni> but that wasn't yesterday
09:20:23  <stillunknown> I have improved the parts that were unclear to me, but what defines completely done in this case?
09:21:44  <Noldo> It seems I didn't break anything
09:22:27  <Noldo> AIs are crazy on a small map :D
09:23:18  <Noldo> it terraforms so much it looks like the ground is alive
09:25:48  <blathijs> Bjarni: Could you remove the old debian packages from SF?

09:37:33  <CIA-1> OpenTTD: bjarni * r10080 /trunk/src/players.cpp: -Cleanup: replaced magic numbers in SubtractMoneyFromAnyPlayer() with enum values
09:38:06  <Bjarni> silly... we used the enum elsewhere, but when reading the flag, it used magic numbers
09:38:14  <Bjarni> blathijs: sure
09:38:27  <blathijs> Bjarni: Thanks :-)
09:39:44  <Bjarni> done

09:56:20  <Bjarni> <Noldo> It seems I didn't break anything <--- I find that hard to believe... everybody breaks something. It's just a matter of time before the obscene new bug is found
09:56:48  <Noldo> that's why there is the 'seems' word
09:57:13  <Bjarni> like the first version of autoreplace. It crashed in MP if the lag was too big
09:57:46  <Bjarni> like if a train completely left a depot before the command was executed (it was issued when it entered)
09:58:07  <Bjarni> so short trains and/or really bad lag crashed the games
09:58:14  *** kaan [~Klaus@] has joined #openttd
09:58:21  <kaan> morning all
09:58:23  <Bjarni> naturally I never found that bug when testing locally
09:58:34  <Bjarni> it's not morning at all
09:58:37  <Bjarni> :p
09:58:53  * Bjarni wrote his first svn entry at 6:18 today
09:59:01  <Bjarni> not OTTD though :/

10:04:18  <Bjarni> but I woke up and couldn't sleep
10:04:18  * boekabart did, but didn't want to
10:04:27  <Bjarni> too hot
10:04:28  <boekabart> lost half a day :(

10:05:18  <kaan> hehe, when you live by the lake and forest its nice and warm, not hot and dreadfull :D
10:06:05  <Bjarni> the same should be true when living at the sea :s
10:06:09  <Bjarni> but not today
10:06:29  *** Noldo [] has joined #openttd
10:06:36  <Bjarni> wb Noldo
10:06:44  <kaan> Bjarni: where do you live?
10:06:58  <Noldo> I decided to ^S my irssi
10:07:12  <Bjarni> @home
10:07:13  <Bjarni> :p
10:07:42  <kaan> oh, that famous spot near the sea :P
10:07:58  <Bjarni> I'm not stupid enough to give away my address in here... people could show up in person to try to make me do stuff to the code
10:08:08  <Bjarni> I can imagine some people, who might do that :(
10:08:24  <kaan> I was thinking more like what country or sea ;)
10:08:36  <Bjarni> Denmark
10:08:46  <Bjarni> you should use /whois and you would have known :p
10:09:01  <kaan> I dont use /whois, its never reiable
10:09:07  <kaan> *reliable
10:09:20  <Bjarni> btw how can you be in Denmark and NOT be somewhat close to sea... ;)
10:09:38  <Bjarni> but it's pretty close
10:09:39  <kaan> easy, take a look at nørup ;)
10:09:58  <kaan> islands or mainland? east or west coast?
10:10:00  <Bjarni> you replaced sea with sø.... error in translation xD
10:10:17  <kaan> hehe
10:10:51  <Bjarni> well
10:11:15  <Bjarni> if I decided to cut some trees and stuff, then I would be able to see Sweden from here
10:11:26  <kaan> ok, thats the problem then
10:11:39  <kaan> east coast in calm winds

10:14:45  * Bjarni decides to hide in Sweden and watch the people looking for him in Denmark
10:14:53  <kaan> nice plan

10:16:25  <mikk36> lol
10:16:36  <mikk36> what do you have against Bjarni, kaan ?
10:16:54  <kaan> nothing much, i treat everyone like that :P
10:17:13  <mikk36> so you have a vendetta against me too ?
10:17:17  <Bjarni> sure
10:17:19  <Bjarni> we all do
10:17:33  <mikk36> :)
10:17:43  <mikk36> at least i'm not different from you then :P
10:17:54  <Bjarni> hmm
10:18:06  <mikk36> in that matter :P

10:19:31  <mikk36> hehe
10:19:32  <Noldo> missed the d
10:20:25  <kaan> oh well
10:20:54  <kaan> i have this idea that i cant seem to get mysefl to start implementing
10:21:06  <kaan> if i bother you guys with it i might do it
10:21:51  <kaan> the idea is to make two classes: DepotBackup and VehicleBackup
10:22:38  <kaan> They would be used when cloning vehicles and upgrading them across tracktypes and so on
10:23:07  <Bjarni> cloning across tracktypes?
10:23:26  <Bjarni> wouldn't that be autoreplace across tracktypes?
10:23:45  <Bjarni> and I wondered about that as well
10:23:49  <Bjarni> well
10:23:53  <Bjarni> sort of the samem
10:23:55  <Bjarni> *same
10:24:06  <kaan> the idea is that you can create a VehicleBackup with a Vehicle as parameter and then it saves all the data, this makes the backup able to return the cost for several operations on that vehicle, like cloning or upgrading replacing and so on
10:24:28  <Bjarni> it should be two depots next to each other and a train entering one depot would be replaced to the other type in the other depot
10:24:37  <Bjarni> I just can't get assed to code it :p
10:24:41  <kaan> and if there is money enough it can also execute the wished operation
10:25:24  <kaan> Bjarni: that where the DepotBackup class comes into play
10:26:43  <Bjarni> have you seen how autoreplace works?
10:26:50  <Bjarni> it's a vehicle by vehicle action
10:27:03  <kaan> if you use the upgrade tool on a depot then it will make a DepotBackup that in turn will make VehicleBackup of all vehilcles in the depot and then if all things are alright you can destroy the original depot and place a new one and populate it with upgraded vehicles
10:28:07  <kaan> no i havent, and its entirely on purpose
10:28:27  <kaan> im writing a new solution to an old problem ;)
10:28:57  <Bjarni> so if the train enters a depot, then get the money from selling it (before selling it), then move though it vehicle by vehicle to generate the new train in the other depot and then it was done, move the cargo, sell the old train and repay the price of the old train (you started by borrowing it and now you get the money again by selling, so to avoid double payment)
10:29:19  <Bjarni> it something goes wrong, then it can just sell the new train and report an error and the old train is untouched
10:29:37  <Bjarni> if done correctly, then this can be done for free so the money is also untouched
10:30:19  <kaan> the whole idea was to make a "backup" that you can test to see if all things go well before actually doing any changes in the game world
10:30:20  <mikk36> Bjarni, what would u say for the minimum requirements of openttd ?
10:31:12  <Bjarni> mikk36: depends on the map size and such... I used to run it on a 266 MHz PPC.... worked ok for decent screen sizes and map sizes, but it was more or less maxed out so fast forward gained max 10% speed
10:31:12  <mikk36> with gui
10:31:24  <stillunknown> mikk36: Depends on many factors (i know i'm not Bjarni).
10:31:53  <mikk36> i tried it on 1Ghz Athlon, G400, 1GB ram and it was pure laghell, already at the start screen
10:32:00  <Bjarni> maybe the game is a bit more demanding today... it has been a while since I used that computer
10:32:12  <kaan> Bjarni: besides, i was thinking of using the same money buffer as the replace function has
10:32:16  <Bjarni> 1 GHz should be enough
10:32:33  <stillunknown> <-- bug on the hashmap patch
10:32:50  <mikk36> well, i got only maybe max 15fps out of it on the start screen
10:32:56  <stillunknown> mikk36: what OS do you run?
10:33:00  <mikk36> ~800x600 or whatever that default screensize
10:33:03  <mikk36> xp pro
10:33:09  <Bjarni> stillunknown: it's a patch, not a bug... see task type
10:33:23  <Bjarni> default is 640x480
10:33:29  <mikk36> well, that then
10:33:30  <mikk36> i
10:33:30  <Bjarni> I used OSX 10.2.8
10:33:32  <stillunknown> But it's still on a bugtracker ;-)
10:33:40  <mikk36> m on 1600x1200 at my work
10:33:45  <mikk36> i'm*
10:33:49  <Bjarni> stillunknown: it's on our task tracker ;)
10:34:21  <mikk36> editing pdf's relatively easily
10:35:01  <Bjarni> kaan: how do you plan on making the cache.... I would like to see that
10:35:05  <mikk36> has anyone else testid openttd on a matrox card ?
10:35:09  <mikk36> tested*
10:35:16  <kaan> cashe?
10:35:27  <Bjarni> I know, but how?
10:35:35  <kaan> what cashe?
10:35:58  <Bjarni> the vehicle backup thing
10:36:02  <kaan> oh
10:36:14  <stillunknown> mikk36: You have official drivers installed for your card?
10:36:18  <mikk36> ofc
10:36:19  <kaan> linked lists mostly
10:37:17  <Bjarni> but the vehicles are in the pool system...
10:37:52  <kaan> oh, but im not going anywhere near using the Vehicle class for anything but reading existing vehicles
10:38:12  <Bjarni> then how will you restore your backup?
10:38:17  <kaan> VehicleBackup will be your basic wagon or whatever
10:39:10  <Bjarni> how about storing the vehicle struct and then use memcpy to get everything?
10:39:11  <kaan> DepotBackup::CloneVehicle(Vehicle v)
10:39:20  <Bjarni> you would have to deal with vehicle pointers though if you do that
10:39:32  <kaan> oh, right ;)
10:40:43  * Bjarni wonders if this can be applied to autoreplace without making it too slow
10:40:51  <kaan> Im thinking that it will not be any kind of optimised code, but rather made to be easy to understand as these operations dont occour often
10:41:16  <Bjarni> wrong
10:41:17  <kaan> autoreplace is one usecase this should work on
10:41:30  <Bjarni> it will happen all the time when somebody switches from one railtype to another
10:41:56  <stillunknown> Striving for optimized code is always, but do keep it understandable.
10:41:58  <kaan> all the time, as in every 5 minutes?
10:42:27  <stillunknown> kaan: Imagine if a lot of features were coded with the same idea.
10:42:40  <Bjarni> as in "happens in bursts, which can make slow clients in MP drop because they can't keep up"
10:42:49  <kaan> good point
10:43:02  <stillunknown> Also keep in mind it should run on slower platforms.
10:43:19  <kaan> this approach is mostly a memory expensive one rather than cpu expensive
10:43:39  <stillunknown> How memory expensive?
10:43:40  <Bjarni> if the server is too slow, then it will delay sending "move to next tick" commands
10:44:07  <Bjarni> if a client is too slow, but the server can keep up, then the client has no way to tell that it's behind the action and it drops
10:44:28  <Bjarni> because of that we should try to even the load
10:44:36  <Bjarni> over many ticks if possible
10:44:53  <kaan> that would be possible with this approach
10:45:19  <kaan> you can restrict the making of backups to X per tick
10:45:27  <Bjarni> this is why autoreplace is nice... it works on VehicleEnterDepot() and odds are that it's limited how many vehicles that enters a depot during the same tick
10:46:19  <stillunknown> mikk36: I hope you find out what your problem is.
10:46:26  <kaan> but that would destroy the transaction idea
10:46:34  <mikk36> i most propably won't
10:46:34  <Bjarni> yeah
10:46:49  <mikk36> because i'll upgrade my work computer in max 2 weeks
10:47:33  <Bjarni> this is why two depots next to each other and an action on VehicleEntersDepot() would help... only one train enters the same depot every tick
10:48:04  <Bjarni> and then you wouldn't need a backup because you just delay selling the old one until the new one is complete
10:48:45  <kaan> one of the ideas in this was to unify the way these kinds of actions is handled
10:50:16  <Bjarni> using autoreplace for this as well would unify it, but it would need some work on the autoreplace code to make this work
10:50:40  <kaan> maybe its time i look at the existing code
10:50:54  <Bjarni> autoreplace_cmd.cpp
10:51:07  <kaan> ill have a look :)
10:51:15  <Bjarni> I moved it to a file of it's own not long ago
10:52:40  <CIA-1> OpenTTD: rubidium * r10081 /trunk/src/ (ai/default/default.cpp town_cmd.cpp): -Fix [FS851]: towns/AIs didn't build bridges anymore (boekabart).
10:53:24  <Bjarni> hmm
10:53:50  <Bjarni> I wonder how the backup idea would work on autoreplace in general
10:53:58  <Bjarni> I mean if it would be faster or slower
10:54:22  *** scia [~scia@] has joined #openttd
10:54:23  <kaan> that iompossible to say before i get around to implementing something that works ;)
10:54:30  <Bjarni> yeah
10:55:17  <Bjarni> but having a backup command would solve many of my newGRF compatibility issues as I can just presume it works and if it fails, then revert
10:55:41  <kaan> thats one major selling point i guess :)
10:55:51  *** Touqen [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
10:59:18  <Bjarni> I wondered about how to make the backup, but just making a linked list (or actually an array of the correct length... we know the needed length when backing up) might do the trick if handled correctly
10:59:49  <Bjarni> but it would have to do way more than you just mentioned :/
10:59:59  <Bjarni> or else it will fuck up
11:00:03  <kaan> Id prefer <List> as you can iterate over it
11:00:49  <Bjarni> since it's a fixed size, you should use vector. It's like an array, but you can iterate over it and extend it if needed
11:00:57  <kaan> yes, there would have to be all kinds os securty checks and bell and whistles
11:01:12  <kaan> ok then, i give in ;)
11:02:14  <kaan> I was thinking that once you have a backup in hand, then you can ask it to simulate varius operations and return the cost, or even if its possible
11:02:28  *** Touqen [] has joined #openttd
11:02:44  <Bjarni> it would be hard to simulate
11:02:49  <Bjarni> ... or would it
11:03:11  <hylje> transaction-based replacing!
11:03:13  <kaan> not if its the same code that actually does the work when you turn simulate off ;)
11:03:19  <hylje> now with military grade reliability!
11:03:44  <kaan> hylje: yup ;)
11:03:54  <Bjarni> the problem with the simulation is the pool thing
11:04:14  <kaan> i dont know one bit about the pool, please tell me what the problem is?
11:04:27  <Bjarni> whenever you buy something, it will end up in the pool
11:04:42  <Bjarni> when you sell something, it's presumed to be in the pool
11:05:00  <Bjarni> think of the pool as a giant <List>
11:05:10  <Bjarni> we just made custom code to handle it to make it faster
11:05:38  <kaan> ok, then waht is the problem, every backup object isnt in the pool
11:05:42  <blathijs> Bjarni: It's more like an array than a List, since every item has an index
11:05:43  <Bjarni> it contains all vehicles in the game (we use 16 bit VehicleIDs, so it's 64000 player vehicles+ some reserved stuff)
11:05:57  <Bjarni> blathijs: right.. good point
11:06:42  <Bjarni> all the functions to build and sell vehicles interacts with the pool and presumes that the vehicle is inside the pool
11:07:01  <kaan> yes ...
11:07:21  <Bjarni> so mixing an external list with the pool would be bad
11:07:36  <kaan> abstraction is key
11:07:40  <Bjarni> making a backup would most likely be just that
11:08:00  <Bjarni> the ability to store the info on the vehicles
11:08:06  <kaan> the backup isnt real in any sence, but a real vehilche can be made with the data in the backup
11:08:22  <Noldo> blueprint?
11:09:16  <kaan> its just a matter of making the conversion at the right time :)
11:09:19  <Bjarni> the backup would contain the vehicle struct. Restoring the backup would be to request x free slots in the pool (it's returned as an array with a pointer to each free place), so it can be copied back into the pool
11:10:27  <Bjarni> so it would likely be like: backup, work on original. If it fails, then sell original and request X free places in the pool to restore the vehicle. Fix the pointers as it's likely not in the same location in the pool anymore
11:10:48  *** geoffk [] has joined #openttd
11:11:14  <Bjarni> also cash flow should be 0, so you have to pay -income from selling the old train
11:11:40  <Bjarni> doing it any other way would likely cause more problems than it will solve
11:11:59  <kaan> VehicleBackup::ProduceVehicle(VehicleType, TrackType, CargoRefit) soemthing like that, mind the pseudocode ;)
11:12:47  <Bjarni> if the vehicle struct is stored in the backup, then we store everything you just wrote as arguments
11:13:19  <kaan> well in talking conversion they might differ in the new version
11:13:23  <Bjarni> so it's just store, and when reverting, it's moving the data back and setting up the next and first pointers
11:13:53  <Bjarni> and it will be 100% like the old one
11:13:57  <kaan> well, thats drifting a bit far from my original thought now ;)
11:14:10  <Bjarni> err, every single vehicle pointer in the restored train should be checked
11:14:33  <Bjarni> dualheaded engines would need to set up a pointer to the other end as well
11:14:56  <Bjarni> <kaan> well, thats drifting a bit far from my original thought now ;) <-- maybe, but it's drifting towards something that might actually work
11:15:20  <kaan> thats one way to look at it :P
11:15:24  *** Gekkko[PDA] [gekko@] has left #openttd []
11:15:39  <kaan> anyway, im glad that i seem to have inspired you
11:16:06  <Noldo> I managed to get rid of _yearly_expenses_type
11:16:21  <blathijs> Bjarni: What exactly would a "vehicle backup" be?
11:16:33  <blathijs> a vehicle that doesn't really exist but can be cloned?
11:16:50  <Bjarni> both yes and no
11:17:27  *** lolman [] has joined #openttd
11:17:32  <kaan> as i read bjarni its a placeholder for vehicledata that you can use to restore a vehicle
11:18:06  <Bjarni> instead of doing a whole lot of magic checks to estimate if a replace can take place, then it can copy all the vehicle structs into a vector and then just try to replace. If it fails, then it should sell all the vehicles in question and restore the original based on the data in the vector
11:18:43  <Bjarni> then the magic would be to ensure that no vehicle pointers messes up and that the total costs ends up as 0
11:19:09  <blathijs> ah, to prevent autoreplace from failing
11:19:10  <Bjarni> the alternative would be to work on autoreplace whenever a new newGRF feature breaks it
11:19:43  <blathijs> how exactly does NewGRF break autoreplace? Introduce unanticipated costs?
11:19:59  <Bjarni> well, it will ensure that in the eyes of the user, nothing happened if the replaced failed
11:20:48  <Bjarni> <blathijs> how exactly does NewGRF break autoreplace? Introduce unanticipated costs? <-- no. The last bug I fixed was due to the new engine that had the restriction that it couldn't be joined with the cars
11:21:10  <Bjarni> and because of that, the user noticed two half trains in the depot, both stopped
11:21:46  *** pro [] has joined #openttd
11:21:51  <Bjarni> if the backup was in place, then it would notice the problem, sell everything, pay back the income from the selling and restore the original vehicle
11:21:56  <Bjarni> nomatter what went wrong
11:22:22  <blathijs> Can't you simply create the new train first, then if that worked, sell the old train?
11:22:28  <kaan> Its a good solution to that specific problem :)
11:22:49  <Noldo> does vehicle purchase price change when bying and selling vehicles?
11:23:11  <Bjarni> blathijs: not if I only has to replace a few units of a long train, say like 2 engines in a 10 unit train... the rest should remain the same
11:23:21  <Bjarni> Noldo: not if the age is 0
11:23:31  <Bjarni> which it would be in this case
11:24:23  <Bjarni> blathijs: I tried making a brand new train and a few other ideas like it... they all failed
11:24:35  <kaan> oh, i have to go or ill mis my workout

11:25:14  <Bjarni> ahh

11:36:38  <Wolf01> hello
11:36:38  <Bjarni> last winter we had some snowplow trains that derailed due to a whole lot of compressed snow
11:36:51  <Bjarni> I think two of them derailed
11:37:46  <Bjarni> btw we lost our last commercially driven steam locomotive when it derailed with a snowplow

11:40:44  <stillunknown> I have a low airflow system, but it's holding up quite well.

14:06:05  <Wolf01> i don't have enough knowledge to change massively the code to make it work, but i'll try to get it work as it is
14:06:46  <Bjarni> the general problem is that some windows are too big to fit on the screen
14:07:02  <Bjarni> how big is your monitor?
14:07:12  <Bjarni> resolution, not inches :)
14:07:14  <Wolf01> mmm
14:07:28  <Wolf01> 240x320
14:07:55  <Bjarni> can't it be turned into 320x240?
14:08:06  <Wolf01> yes, if i rotate the pda
14:08:43  <Bjarni> anyway OpenTTD is designed with 640x480 in mind so some windows default size is like 400 pixels high/wide
14:08:54  <Wolf01> the camera software works in 320x240, so it shouldn't be a problem
14:09:25  <Bjarni> well, if you get it working, then we can talk about the window sizes
14:09:37  <Bjarni> it's the same issue on PSP and it more or less works
14:10:01  <Wolf01> another problem is that i don't have enough buttons
14:10:10  <Bjarni> hmm
14:10:18  <Bjarni> how many do you have?
14:10:29  <Wolf01> i have only the directional pad, and some other buttons around
14:10:47  <Wolf01> but i think they are binded to the phone functions
14:11:04  <Wolf01> as i saw that only 2 buttons were customisable
14:11:14  <Bjarni> that would be enough

14:11:27  <Wolf01> if you want to look at it, is the ipaq rw6815

14:13:32  <Bjarni> the mouse is the touch screen, you have 4 direction keys, that can be used for control and stuff
14:13:42  <Bjarni> touching the screen is the same as a click

14:46:32  *** lolman [] has joined #openttd
14:47:37  <Bjarni> strgen would make the lng file from a txt file when you execute it with the right arguments... nobody tells you to do it when compiling the OpenTTD binary

15:31:08  <Eddi|zuHause3> Wolf01: are you sure it's not a dedicated build?
15:31:13  <Wolf01> but the compiled version no
15:32:07  <Wolf01> what's the difference about the language files for the dedicated or the ui?

15:36:04  <glx> Wolf01: with the corresponding openttd.grf ?
15:36:16  <Rubidium> as compiler
15:36:28  <Wolf01> i think he uses g++
15:36:35  <Wolf01> he is in ubuntu 7.04
15:37:26  <Rubidium> ah, so he doesn't have any of the sdl development files, so it falls back to a dedicated build
15:37:37  <Rubidium> his configure warns about that
15:37:43  <Eddi|zuHause3> yeah, that was my suspicion, too
15:37:44  <Rubidium> (unless he's using non-nightlies)
15:38:03  <Wolf01> warning: no video driver found, building dedicate only
15:38:07  <Eddi|zuHause3> yes

15:39:49  <Sacro> well afaik
15:39:59  <Sacro> openttd is going into multiverse
15:41:22  <Rubidium> what's multiverse?
15:41:30  <Sacro> Rubidium: non free repo for Ubuntu
15:41:52  *** skidd13 [] has left #openttd []
15:42:45  <Rubidium> ah Ubuntu a.k.a. rebranded Debian Unstable ;) (openttd is already in Debian Unstable)
15:43:33  <Sacro> yeah
15:44:57  <Wolf01> so how he can solve that issue?
15:45:19  <Rubidium> install the sdl development stuff
15:45:26  <Eddi|zuHause3> Wolf01: install sdl-dev
15:45:30  <Wolf01> ok
15:45:41  <Sacro> heh
15:45:42  <Eddi|zuHause3> might be called slightly differently
15:45:46  <Sacro> Arch always comes with devel
15:46:03  <Wolf01> the nice thing is that configure detects sdl: "libsdl-dev detected"
15:49:42  <stillunknown> I need some advice, if someone posts a patch to openttd, then by default it becomes gpl code, meaning i can do whatever i want, as long as stay within the bounds of the gpl?
15:52:47  <Eddi|zuHause3> err... i'd say yes...
15:53:42  <izhirahider> How can they put openttd into multiverse? Will they include the trg*.grf and into the build, or will the game be uplayable out of the box?
15:54:53  <stillunknown> I don't think anyone ships openttd with data files.
15:54:58  <Eddi|zuHause3> izhirahider: the same as with the debian packages... i.e. without datafiles, and a notice that they are needed
15:55:26  <blathijs> That's why openttd is in contrib in debian instead of main
15:55:39  <Eddi|zuHause3> it has been done a hundred times with other games
15:57:16  <Rubidium> stillunknown: legally it might be gpl, but changing a patch (slowest one by the way) slightly and then posting it as "complete" and "your own" on the bugtracker is not ethical without consent of the author
15:57:17  <Bjarni> kaan (and whoever else is interested): <-- my first draft for backing up and restoring a chain of vehicles (read: train)
15:57:48  <Bjarni> using vector turned out to be messy... this should work even though I haven't implemented anywhere to use this and due to that, it's untested
15:57:58  <stillunknown> Rubidium: I mentioned i got it from somewhere, i'm not even claiming that.
15:57:59  <Bjarni> I guess it could do with more comments as well
15:59:54  <Rubidium> stillunknown: even the numbers in that patch are wrong
16:00:44  <Rubidium> and when something is "confusing", it might be that you don't understand what's happening instead of something being "wrong"
16:01:43  <Rubidium> for example, the map is two times as wide as it is high in the GUI (assuming a square map). Maybe that's the reason why it "halved" the resolution along one side
16:02:57  <Rubidium> and when you try to "fix" the confusing stuff, fix it everywhere instead of only a few instances
16:04:14  <peter1138> ah yes, i was working on the fixed version
16:04:24  <peter1138> before i was rudely dragged to the mother-in-law's
16:04:57  <stillunknown> who are you talking to?
16:05:02  <peter1138> myself
16:05:07  <peter1138> mostly
16:05:53  <Rubidium> oh, stillunknown don't forget that vehicles do not need to be on the same tile to actually collide
16:07:37  <Rubidium> and your hash functions can break very very easily
16:07:49  * Rubidium is off to dinner
16:08:34  <stillunknown> At this point i'm considering doing it myself when i have some more time.

17:03:56  <Bjarni> isn't that what we want it to do?
17:04:20  <Kjetil> nah
17:04:29  <Kjetil> We want it to calculate the meaning of life

17:06:49  <kaan> Bjarni: yup, its what we want it to do, and more :)
17:06:59  <Bjarni> what more?
17:07:35  <kaan> well, i mentioned that it would be nice if the backup could be altered and the price of alteration returned, and stuff like that
17:08:43  <kaan> you see, where you see the backup as a way to restore after mangling the original, i see the backup as the place to do the mangling
17:09:39  <Bjarni> I think altering the backup would cause bugs that can only be solved by hacks, that can cause new bugs
17:10:02  <kaan> thats because you made the bachup a real Vehicle
17:10:10  <kaan> im not going there
17:10:24  <Kjetil> wouldn't it be easier to materialize the backup.. change it and then backup the new vehicle ?
17:10:25  <Bjarni> that sounds dangerous
17:10:45  <kaan> im making a simuli that can be mangled and if the result is likeable, then it can be instantied in game

17:56:47  <Eddi|zuHause3> skidd13: integers use 2-complement, there is no designated sign bit

18:00:46  <Eddi|zuHause3> he specifically said "map"

18:52:23  <Zr40> when you view the whole map, the (0,0) map coordinates map to the top middle of your viewport
18:52:33  <Zr40> maybe that's got something to do with that
18:52:46  <Luukland> Heya Everyone, I have a small question :P
18:52:59  <Zr40> and a tile is (about? exactly?) twice as wide as it is high
18:53:10  <peter1138> exactly, yes
18:53:16  <Eddi|zuHause3> stillunknown: it's the transformation from isometric view
18:53:45  <Eddi|zuHause3> x direction is two left and one down
18:53:56  <Luukland> If i transport something (for example goods), and than two year i do not transport these goods from that station, will the rating disappear, or stay at 15%: poor?
18:54:03  <Zr40> Eddi|zuHause3: that looks flipped to me
18:54:06  <peter1138> stay at 15% poor
18:54:12  <Eddi|zuHause3> so -2*x in the x part and +x in the y part
18:54:16  <Zr40> Eddi|zuHause3: isn't x left to right, not top to bottom?
18:54:44  <Eddi|zuHause3> x(original) is in map positions
18:55:01  <Luukland> peter1138 ok, but then the factory still leaves some goods at my station, every time a grain trucks delivers some grain right?
18:55:08  <Eddi|zuHause3> x direction is /, y direction is \, i believe
18:55:11  <Zr40> in map coordinates, (0,0) is the top corner
18:55:50  <Zr40> rotate that to be the top left corner
18:55:57  <Zr40> if the X direction is /, that becomes | after rotation
18:56:29  <Eddi|zuHause3> Zr40: the problem is, screen coordinates are reversed
18:56:45  <Eddi|zuHause3> in mathmatical diagrams, x rises to right, and y to the top
18:56:56  <Eddi|zuHause3> on screen, x rises to the right, and y to the bottom
18:57:16  <Zr40> in either case, X still rises to the right
18:57:22  <Zr40> not to the bottom
18:57:55  <Eddi|zuHause3> Zr40: take your right hand, thumb = x, index finger = y, middle finger = z
18:58:26  <Eddi|zuHause3> now turn it that thumb points left, index finger points right, middle finger points up
18:58:31  <Eddi|zuHause3> it's all correct
18:58:55  <Zr40> that's not possible
18:59:17  <Zr40> the thumb and index finger point on the same axis
18:59:26  <Eddi|zuHause3> thumb points left towards you, index finger points right towards you
18:59:38  <Eddi|zuHause3> all fingers have to have an angle of 90°
18:59:56  <Luukland> ..........................
19:01:33  <Luukland> Someone else who can give my the answer on my question?
19:01:54  <Eddi|zuHause3>
19:01:57  <Zr40> ratings only disappear when the station disappears
19:02:29  <Zr40> Eddi|zuHause3: in that case, the origin seems positioned wrong
19:02:33  <Eddi|zuHause3> i think ratings disappear after they drop to 0%
19:02:48  <Eddi|zuHause3> Zr40: the origin can be placed completely freely
19:03:02  <Eddi|zuHause3> also the direction is irrelevant
19:03:08  <Eddi|zuHause3> relevant is the order of the fingers
19:03:18  <Luukland> Thx Zr40
19:04:55  <Luukland> But why ratings do not disappear... They are just doing nothing...
19:05:02  <Eddi|zuHause3> you have the coordinate system like this:
19:05:05  <Eddi|zuHause3> . z
19:05:06  <Luukland> I believe in TTDpatch, they did disappear
19:05:07  <Eddi|zuHause3> . |
19:05:12  <Eddi|zuHause3> ./ \
19:05:15  <Eddi|zuHause3> x   y
19:05:37  <Zr40> Luukland: I haven't used TTDpatch for a long time, but I don't remember them disappearing there either
19:05:44  <Eddi|zuHause3> it applies to the right hand rule, so it is correct
19:06:14  <Luukland> then I am wrong Zr40, but you dont agree with me that it is useless?
19:06:31  <Zr40> Eddi|zuHause3: any xyz coordinate system applies to the left or right hand rule, as you say rotation doesn't matter
19:07:16  <Eddi|zuHause3> actually, by my argumentation, "left-hand" coordinate systems are "wrong"
19:07:27  <Eddi|zuHause3> everything else is free
19:08:12  <Zr40> Eddi|zuHause3: what is wrong about that?
19:08:27  <Eddi|zuHause3> they are reversed...
19:08:36  <Zr40> so would a left-hand user say
19:08:52  <Eddi|zuHause3> it's about permutations of 3 objects
19:09:13  <Eddi|zuHause3> you have permutations with signature 1 and permutations with signature -1
19:09:39  <Eddi|zuHause3> each permutation with signature 1 is invariant wrt left or right hand
19:09:49  <Eddi|zuHause3> permutations with signature -1 switch sides
19:10:14  <Eddi|zuHause3> and in "common" mathmatics, the right hand side was chosen
19:10:22  <Zr40> I've lost you there.
19:10:39  <Eddi|zuHause3> (refer to "mathmatical positive" and "mathmatical negative" direction)
19:11:45  <Eddi|zuHause3>
19:11:55  <Zr40> I agree using the same system is good, but using the right-hand system doesn't make the left-hand system bad
19:12:31  <Eddi|zuHause3> it's completely dual, so you just choose a side, and stick with it
19:13:09  <Zr40> yes, but assume no side has been chosen at all
19:13:15  <Eddi|zuHause3> "good" and "bad", "true" and "false", "left" and "right"... it's all the same
19:13:30  <Zr40> you started with "wrong" :)
19:13:34  <Eddi|zuHause3> yes, the "right" side has been chosen
19:13:48  <Eddi|zuHause3> it's been like that for several hundred years
19:13:53  <Eddi|zuHause3> just believe me :)
19:14:04  <Zr40> I don't question that :)
19:14:15  <Eddi|zuHause3> you do :)
19:14:36  <Zr40> no, I question the left-hand coordinate system being wrong by itself
19:15:19  <Zr40> just like driving on the right or left side of the road
19:15:33  <Zr40> they're incompatible, but either way is valid
19:16:09  <Eddi|zuHause3> it is "valid", it is just not "standard", and by "right"=="standard", "left"=="wrong"
19:16:20  <Zr40> go say that in Britain :)
19:20:10  <Luukland> 0_o
19:20:21  <Eddi|zuHause3> i have been saying that in britain, but they were apparently not listening :p
19:20:44  <Luukland> >_<
19:21:14  <Biff> exciting race
19:23:22  <Eddi|zuHause3> anyway, nothing in there is "reverse"... what is reverse are the screen coordinates
19:24:02  <Eddi|zuHause3> btw. one left hand coordinate system is used in physics, because the + and - poles are reversed
19:24:11  <Eddi|zuHause3> current flows from - to +

20:53:52  <Bjarni> south western Germany has thunder right now
20:54:13  <Bjarni> not as bad as the German/Dutch border though

20:59:06  <Eddi|zuHause3> erfurt is still over 50km away
20:59:11  <Bjarni> I know
20:59:16  <Bjarni> but it's not 150 km anymore
21:00:04  <Bjarni> I would be a moron not to figure out the distance between Erfurt and Halle when I'm looking at a map with both towns on it xD
21:00:52  <Eddi|zuHause3> depends if the map gives a scale :)
21:02:50  <Bjarni> it does
21:03:52  <Bjarni> actually according to this map, the distance is 86 km

21:15:30  <Eddi|zuHause3> halle-erfurt is 100km by road, and 150km by autobahn
21:16:20  <Biff> <3 autobahn <3
21:18:27  <Bjarni> why?
21:18:39  <Bjarni> you like traffic jams and reckless driving?
21:19:01  <Biff> no, i dont like traffic jams :)
21:19:13  <Biff> whats your definition of reckless driving?
21:19:27  <Eddi|zuHause3> traffic jams reduced since they finished the 3rd lane on the most occupied routes
21:20:30  <Bjarni> reckless driving is when you drive so fast that you can't be sure to stop before an unforeseen obstacle, like traffic jams
21:20:31  <Eddi|zuHause3> the autobahn here was a constant construction site for 15 years
21:21:05  <Biff> Bjarni: i agree
21:21:12  <Bjarni> people really do that
21:21:13  <Biff> but thats pretty fast
21:21:17  <Eddi|zuHause3> you see most obstacles way in advance
21:21:33  <Biff> atleast the part of autobahn i drove on
21:21:35  <Eddi|zuHause3> it's not like there is a sudden 90° curve or something :p
21:22:05  <Biff> hehe
21:22:15  <Bjarni> not if the road is a bit wet, then you can't be sure to brake safely at the usual distance
21:22:32  <Eddi|zuHause3> the worst situation is when you drive 160+ on the left lane, and there switches a car from the middle/right lane into your lane, going 120
21:22:37  <Biff> well, if its wet you should obviously take that into consideration
21:22:42  *** sPooT [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
21:22:47  <Bjarni> unforeseen obstacles can also be other slow driving cars that makes sudden lane changes right in front of you
21:22:50  <Biff> Eddi|zuHause3: that happened a lot when i were there
21:23:26  <Biff> but you often see in advance who will switch out into your lane without watching their mirror.. that happens often here in norway
21:23:33  <Eddi|zuHause3> i had that happen to me, too, fortunately there was another lane left of me, and it was free
21:23:45  * Bjarni considers 160 reckless nomatter the conditions
21:23:47  <Biff> just a few cars are equipped with mirrors
21:23:51  <Eddi|zuHause3> the guy was practically "surprise switching"
21:24:00  <Biff> Bjarni: even with a empty road?
21:24:12  <Bjarni> you can't be sure that it's empty forever
21:24:19  <Biff> you can see ahead
21:26:24  <Bjarni> also the wheels tend to lose their grip on the road at high speed
21:27:04  *** setrodox [] has quit [Quit: Hapiness ;D]
21:27:07  <Bjarni> not to mention if you hit a small hole or such while braking. The car will stop braking on the wheel in the hole and due to that: turn
21:27:08  <Biff> yes, there are no tires which are made for those kind of speeds
21:27:17  <Eddi|zuHause3> you can be certain that wheels designed for 200km/h also have grip at 200km/h (assuming dry road)
21:27:24  <Bjarni> a car that turns itself at that speed isn't nice to be in
21:27:34  <Biff> Bjarni: yes, we dont have things like esp, abs etc
21:27:53  <Bjarni> abs will not help in that case
21:28:08  <Eddi|zuHause3> <Biff> just a few cars are equipped with mirrors <- i can't see that happening in germany
21:28:12  <Bjarni> it would help if it cut braking on the wheel in the other side of the car though

21:28:55  <Biff> if one wheel locks up a car with abs will normally not weer to the side
21:29:24  <Bjarni> abs will prevent the wheel from blocking, but if the problem is that it's in mid air (for a short while, but we are talking high speed), the anti block system will not prevent the lack of braking
21:29:51  <Eddi|zuHause3> that's why they invented esp
21:30:21  <Eddi|zuHause3> it distributes the braking power unevenly over the wheels, to prevent sliding etc.
21:31:25  <Biff> not to mention that people each day drive the autobahn to check the surface
21:33:02  <Bjarni> whatever you say, I still think it's reckless to drive more than say 100-120 in a car
21:33:35  <Biff> i disagree, and i cant see that you have proven that for all situations
21:34:36  <Eddi|zuHause3> really, the autobahn is built in a way that those "unforseen" situations rarely occure... except for the sudden lane changing, you can't do much about that...

21:35:08  <Eddi|zuHause3> and driving 160 is really not that difficult...
21:37:07  <Bjarni> well, accidents happens and the energy in the movement is v^2, so increased speed will really increase the energy involved in a crash
21:37:52  <Bjarni> so say esp avoids half of the accidents (I don't think so), then we would still have the other half of the accidents and they are all serious due to the high speed
21:38:24  <Eddi|zuHause3> actually, it is more like (v1-v2)^2
21:39:22  <Bjarni> so if everybody drives 200 km/h, then v1 and v2 would be equal and accidents wouldn't be serious?
21:39:32  <Eddi|zuHause3> and by far more accidents happen in city traffic (stop&go etc.) than on the autobahn
21:39:44  <Bjarni> signs, trees and so on all give a v2 = 0
21:39:59  <Rubidium> Bjarni: and people that drive the wrong way?
21:41:04  <Bjarni> like a week ago some drunk guy drove the wrong way here... or actually near kaan and had a headon collision and killed all 4 people in the car he hit
21:41:50  <Eddi|zuHause3> and that's clearly the fault of the speed, and not of the alcohol, right?

21:46:18  <Bjarni> tanks are designed to be at a specific background. Cars aren't designed to blend with a specific background, so black gives the best hiding abilities on multiple backgrounds

21:49:39  <Bjarni> Eddi|zuHause3: well, it looks like 20 km/h was too much for the visibility that day
21:50:29  <peter1138> sleepy time
21:51:11  <Eddi|zuHause3> i don't think the (minimal) fog was actually the main reason for the crash, but don't go there :)
21:52:23  *** Vikthor [~Vikthor@] has quit [Quit: Leaving.]

21:55:28  <Eddi|zuHause3> we have a lot of (usually older) people here in the villages that only have a tractor driving license, they are allowed to drive normal cars, but only if they are limited to 25km/h
21:55:51  *** moe [] has joined #openttd
21:56:35  <Eddi|zuHause3> i always get such a person driving in front of me on the major roads, with no opportunity to overtake...
21:57:02  <ln-> what a funny rule.
21:57:31  <Maedhros> good night
21:57:36  *** Maedhros [] has quit [Quit: leaving]
21:58:02  <Eddi|zuHause3> i have the opinion that those cars need to have a yellow flashlight on top of them...
21:58:24  <ln-> are they allowed to go to autobahns?
21:58:29  <Eddi|zuHause3> because you can hardly determine that the car is not going 100km/h from distance
21:58:50  <Eddi|zuHause3> no, on the autobahn you cannot enter if your car is not able to go over 60km/h
21:59:14  <ln-> but the car is able, only the driver is not. :)
21:59:30  <Eddi|zuHause3> no, the car is not able also, it has an artificial limitation
21:59:44  <ln-> d'ogh
22:00:09  <Eddi|zuHause3> well, usually with that limitation it's still possible to go 40-50km/h
22:00:35  <ln-> how many gears do they have?
22:00:57  <Eddi|zuHause3> but it's not actually the physical limitation that counts, it's the limitation written in the car
22:01:01  <Eddi|zuHause3> 's papers
22:01:18  <Eddi|zuHause3> i don't know, i have never seen one from the inside

23:13:08  <Eddi|zuHause3> Bjarni: see, (v1-v2) DOES matter :)
23:27:58  <Bjarni> actually it was more like if the cars drives equally fast, then they will never reach each other. If they drive somewhat close to each other (in speed), then they will close in slowly and leave time for avoidance
23:29:08  <Eddi|zuHause3> see, there is not much difference if the cars drive 105 and 100 or 165 and 160
23:30:07  <Eddi|zuHause3> this works great, as long nobody driving 120 suddenly switches lanes
23:32:03  <Bjarni> driving is perfectly safe if you take for granted that nobody will ever do anything stupid
23:33:42  <Eddi|zuHause3> as is flying, or internet surfing, or playing skat
23:35:22  <Bjarni> skat?
23:35:39  <Eddi|zuHause3>
23:35:58  <Bjarni> however I have never heard that anybody has died due to somebody else gaining too high speed on the internet
23:36:46  <Eddi|zuHause3> no, but clicking on email attachments and getting their bank accounts cleared out
23:38:00  <Bjarni> are you saying that speed doesn't matter for traffic safety?
23:38:34  <Eddi|zuHause3> no, i'm saying it's not an argument
23:38:43  *** pro [] has quit [Ping timeout: 600 seconds]
23:39:19  <Bjarni> so traffic safety doesn't matter or ?
23:39:25  <Eddi|zuHause3> at least not as unconditional as you are trying to put it
23:40:08  <Eddi|zuHause3> of course traffic safety matters, but just because an accident "may happen" is not a valid reason to not do something
23:40:35  <Eddi|zuHause3> if you never leave your house, the plane can still crash right onto it
23:40:38  <Bjarni> so you aren't using your seatbelt
23:40:52  <CIA-1> OpenTTD: belugas * r10088 /trunk/src/ (industry.h newgrf.cpp): -Codechange: A typo and a code-style
23:40:56  <Eddi|zuHause3> you're getting stupid
23:40:59  <Bjarni> because it's due to "it might happen"
23:41:31  <Bjarni> I'm trying to follow your logics
23:41:37  <Eddi|zuHause3> it is forbidden to drive without
23:41:55  <Eddi|zuHause3> but it is not forbidden to drive 160km/h
23:42:29  <Bjarni> it is here
23:43:10  <Bjarni> if the police catches somebody driving 160, then the driver will have to pass a new driving test nomatter the conditions
23:44:36  <Eddi|zuHause3> that's another point why this discussion is getting nowhere, we're basing it on different preconditions
23:44:45  <Bjarni> it's a fact that whenever the speed increases, the number of accidents will increase and the severity of the accidents increases as well
23:44:58  <Bjarni> anyway I need to sleep
23:45:45  <Bjarni> damn, I have to get up in... way to few hours :(
23:46:18  <Bjarni> I guess I will have to do with around 5 hours of sleep.... that's not the right way to start a week >_<
