00:57:20  <LunarWolf> how to sweep away the font, color GUI in blue because of the barely visible shadow on the bright blue background is stupid
00:57:43  *** pugi [] has quit [Quit: ALL YOUR BASE ARE BELONG TO US!]
01:00:46  <NCommander> so crazy question, when building a rail network, is it better to have one train hit multiple stations (not full loading, all the same cargo), or go from each station in a point to point fashion?
01:01:07  <NCommander> I have condition orders that if a train gets full, it runs non-stop to the sawmill

01:50:16  * NCommander tries something crazy with his orders
01:55:44  <NCommander> heh
01:55:55  <NCommander> I've managed to get my trains to wait until they are at least 50 percent loaded before leaving a station
02:00:22  <trebuchet> NCommander: what if there isn't anything to load, do they just wait?
02:01:03  <trebuchet> your workings are just waiting around, what if they get pissed and start a union
02:07:40  <NCommander> trebuchet: well, its no worse than if its on full load
02:08:11  <NCommander> I have two passenger stations, but one is under-performing right now, so I set it just to load, then I put a condition order to make sure that train goes back to that station if the load is >50

02:35:17  <ccfreak2k> trebuchet, paid to sit and wait? I know at least a few people on IRC that do that!
02:35:24  <NCommander> hrm
02:35:28  <NCommander> It doesn't quite work perfectly
02:35:41  <NCommander> sometimes the train stays in the station, and sometimes it leaves the station trying to get back
02:35:44  <NCommander> ARGH

05:27:38  <TruePikachu> Any chance of getting the music to work under Linux with a hardware synth?
05:28:21  <TruePikachu> I read that timidity is needed, but that's a software synth, and the game is already slow enough
05:29:03  <TruePikachu> I have the sound card configured to work with MIDI through aplaymidi on port 17:0
05:36:14  *** TomyLobo [] has joined #openttd
05:37:33  <TruePikachu> TomyLobo: Do you know how to get a hardware synth working with OTTD music on Linux?
05:38:01  <TomyLobo> no
05:38:04  <TruePikachu> :(
05:38:12  <TomyLobo> am i your last straw? :)
05:38:22  <TruePikachu> You're the only one here...
05:38:35  <TruePikachu> I'm checking the source right now...
05:39:07  <TruePikachu> I read that timidity is needed, but that is worse than even a software synth; the game runs slow enough as is
05:41:23  <TruePikachu> Hmm...some sort of 'extmidi' driver that hates Allegro
05:43:51  <TruePikachu> I can't really make any sense out of this all...I should wait for the dev who wrote this...

08:01:50  <TrueBrain> awwhh, our traffic is back to normal :(
08:02:05  <dihedral> guess you were enjoying that peek TrueBrain
08:02:06  <dihedral> :-)
08:02:14  <TrueBrain> whouldn't every good sysop?
08:02:28  <dihedral> only if it can be handled :-D
08:02:44  *** Progman [] has joined #openttd
08:03:04  <TrueBrain> we got 6 times more unique visitors and generated 6 times more bandwidth :D
08:03:15  <TrueBrain> (over the whole of yesterday)
08:03:23  <VVG> hello
08:03:44  <dihedral> that'll teach the 95/5 bandwidth cost :-D
08:05:13  <TrueBrain> 1.5M people downloaded a release... not to shabby
08:06:11  <dihedral> not at all ;-)
08:06:31  <VVG> 1.5m just yesterday?
08:07:11  <dihedral> and that's just downloading the binary - what about the hits on bananas?
08:11:16  <norbert79> Hmm, does this 1.5M downloads cover sepertate downloads based by IP or ammount of files?
08:11:34  <norbert79> planetmaker: Thank you, fine! I am just about catch up with some of my office things :)
08:12:14  <norbert79> TrueBrain: I am just asking, since I have updated all my binaries, and that takes win32, win9x, win64, linux 32bit, 64 bit, OS2
08:12:24  <norbert79> thats 6 for me
08:12:59  <planetmaker> 1.5M downloads of 1.0.x releases? or overall?
08:13:47  <TrueBrain> 1.5M downloads on the release
08:13:59  <ccfreak2k> Who still uses Windows 95 or 98 or ME?
08:14:00  <TrueBrain> 1.5M downloads totally on all releases
08:14:03  <norbert79> And from 1.5 M different IP's?
08:14:06  <TrueBrain> who still uses Windows?
08:14:15  <ccfreak2k> I do.
08:14:20  <norbert79> ccfreak2k: I have some relatives who still use Windows 98 because of an older machine
08:15:34  <norbert79> and many governments in Hungary are still on older Windows... This doesn't mean, that they play during office time :)
08:15:56  <norbert79> so yes, in Hungary Win9X is still present
08:17:29  <ccfreak2k> Government entities without Windows NT? Scary.
08:17:49  <norbert79> ccfreak2k: Many used not be online years back
08:18:10  <norbert79> It was more typical having seperate machines, maximum LAN
08:18:32  <norbert79> Of course that changed, but some offices still have seperate machines
08:18:59  <norbert79> Or my lawyer, he has an advanced machine at home with Internet but in the office he just has a seperate PC without any LAN/WAN access

09:17:13  * beyre83 says hello to, norbert79
09:17:47  * norbert79 says hello, hello, hello to beyre83 (damn echo) :]
09:17:53  <beyre83> lol
09:18:17  <beyre83> and am schocked that win9x is still in use in hungary
09:18:27  <norbert79> Not so often
09:18:29  <beyre83> shocked*
09:18:34  <norbert79> It's damn rare, but still present
09:19:13  <beyre83> i have a fully licenced copy of win95 i picked out of a skip
09:19:15  <beyre83> lol
09:19:46  <beyre83> a company was throwing it out like 8yrs ago
09:19:52  <beyre83> so i helped my self :p
09:21:14  <norbert79> :) I once seen a copy of the floppy version of Windows 95 OEM
09:21:20  <norbert79> 40-50 floppies? :D
09:21:24  <beyre83> mm
09:21:28  <beyre83> i had a copy on floppy
09:21:30  <beyre83> :p
09:21:34  <beyre83> as well as cd
09:21:47  <norbert79> I have both OEM and OSR2 :)
09:21:49  <beyre83> it wasnt half a bitch if a disc croupted
09:21:50  <norbert79> both hungarian copies
09:22:35  <beyre83> mmm
09:22:41  * norbert79 is in a 'Little Big Adventure' mood, and is shocked to see, that the full game is available for legal whole copy, including add-ons... No wonder, the company went bankrupt without successor like Trilobyte :(
09:23:26  * beyre83 has over 8gb of dosgames
09:23:58  <norbert79> beyre83:
09:24:20  <norbert79> beyre83: Both games in full available, including runtime enviroment for Windows use... Still gives me goosebumps, the game is so damn good
09:24:30  <beyre83> heh
09:24:33  <beyre83> ok
09:24:34  <beyre83> :p
09:24:59  <norbert79> btw I don't think you could top me, I have TONS for DOS, also lot in original

09:26:15  <norbert79> LBA 1-2, huhh, tons
09:27:01  <norbert79> I just loved DOS, I do think though I could only play the part of all available one
09:27:38  *** wollollo [] has joined #openttd
09:27:53  <norbert79> So did I love TT, back it fit to 2-3 floppies, and after 2005 every vehicle of mine company went crazy... :)
09:28:28  <norbert79> Had to replace ALL, since it was just sending it to service station, and when they came out, they got their request renwed immideatly
09:28:44  <norbert79> so none of them could do anything
09:28:47  <blathijs> norbert79: I still have a Windows 95 OEM on 30 floppies in my desk here :-)
09:28:56  <norbert79> blathijs: Cool, lucky one :)
09:29:03  <blathijs> norbert79: I'd be surprised if even half of them still work, of course
09:29:23  <norbert79> I wouldn't... They used Verbatim like floppies
09:29:35  <norbert79> so there is a small chance of having every each of it working
09:29:50  <blathijs> I used my own floppies (I actually created the floppies myself, the Windows was preinstalled)
09:29:54  <Noldo> I remember pirating orignal need for speed
09:30:08  <Noldo> it took 27 floppies
09:30:10  <norbert79> Noldo: :) I loved Screamer more, yet I am also a simulation addict
09:30:20  <norbert79> Noldo: The biggest one I had to copy was GTA1
09:30:27  <norbert79> 30-35 floppies
09:30:40  <Noldo> biggest I tried but gave up was diablo
09:30:42  <Noldo> 100
09:30:44  <norbert79> lol
09:30:52  <norbert79> crazee
09:31:01  <Noldo> crc errors made it interesting
09:31:12  <norbert79> yeah, though I used ARJ mainly
09:31:20  <Noldo> me too
09:31:39  <norbert79> RAR was ok, ZIP's were a nightmare, and bad compression ratio back then
09:32:05  <norbert79> I still even have a crack for RAR 2.00 :D
09:32:08  <Eddi|zuHause> what the hell happened to ARJ? i haven't seen one of those in years
09:32:16  <Noldo> the big "innovation" was to pack it to to floppysized packages on hard drive and the copy those to disk
09:32:22  <norbert79> Eddi|zuHause: Still present, but unused
09:32:46  <dihedral> is there a reason why and company.president_name can be null?
09:32:55  <dihedral> makes it so tedious to get the names
09:33:09  <norbert79> Eddi|zuHause: - That logo of Shareware des Jahres 2001 seems pretty funny to me now :)
09:33:10  <Noldo> then most of us cycled to the target computer few blocks away and checked with packages were broken and called someone to recopy those
09:33:22  <norbert79> Noldo: Yeah, it was fun :)
09:33:46  <norbert79> My first games on the PC were: North and South, Zak McCracken, Street Rod, Netwars
09:34:33  <norbert79> Ooh, and Defender of Crown... that gave me onehalf :(
09:34:39  <norbert79> luckily badly infected my machine
09:35:01  <Eddi|zuHause> the first PC game i remember playing was Sokoban
09:35:25  <norbert79> Eddi|zuHause: My first addictive one was Simcity 1
09:35:35  <Eddi|zuHause> it fit on ONE disk, with plenty of space for MORE GAMES on that same disk!
09:35:56  <norbert79> wow, sounds funny today, but it was awesome back then :)
09:36:19  <norbert79> Stunts also fit to one floppy having space also for tracks
09:36:29  <Noldo> stunts was nice
09:36:47  <norbert79> loved to create maps, I think I still have my edits :)
09:36:49  <Eddi|zuHause> that was where you could build your own tracks with screwdrivers/loops/etc?
09:36:54  <norbert79> indeed
09:37:10  <Eddi|zuHause> that was quite fun
09:37:18  <norbert79> I built a map of 6, called it city, including suburban area, in town, highways, etc...
09:37:30  <norbert79> it was seperated into 6 maps
09:37:41  <norbert79> pretty complicated, like having a roll after a bridge
09:37:47  <norbert79> or a roll after a loop
09:37:54  <norbert79> then a right turn
09:38:22  <Eddi|zuHause> with the slightest touch of a wall you crashed...
09:38:47  <norbert79> and one of the cars had a bug too :)
09:39:23  <norbert79> when it reached max speed after a loop and you didn't release the gas it flew with max speed through the map, and even after turns it didn't get slower
09:40:20  <norbert79> god I just feel I just know too much of all these old games... Maybe I have spent too much time sitting in fornt of the PC? :D

10:03:01  <Eddi|zuHause> and the .cab files were 1.7MB
10:03:21  <Rubidium> so you had to find that tool to format floppies that big
10:03:30  <Eddi|zuHause> yeah, exactly ;)
10:03:35  <Rubidium> and find good enough floppies to actually support that
10:03:48  <Eddi|zuHause> i had no problem with the floppies...
10:04:29  <Eddi|zuHause> in the end i had 2 empty floppies formatted to this size, and swapped them between the two computers

10:49:56  <Eddi|zuHause> beyre83: those needed special drives

10:51:03  <beyre83> though i did have a zip drive
10:51:04  <SmatZ> and compatible with floppies :)
10:51:06  <beyre83> internal
10:51:12  <beyre83> and external model
10:51:13  <SmatZ> I still have several ZIP drives
10:51:14  <beyre83> for that mater
10:51:20  <SmatZ> one external (LPT)
10:51:23  <beyre83> i have several zip disks
10:51:23  <SmatZ> :p
10:51:27  <beyre83> not a drive
10:51:28  <beyre83> :p
10:51:29  <beyre83> to read em
10:51:30  <SmatZ> :)
10:51:31  <Eddi|zuHause> i have disks and one external drive
10:51:38  <Eddi|zuHause> *two disks
10:51:46  <SmatZ> I installed win95 to that 100MB ZIP drive
10:51:51  <SmatZ> and it worked!
10:52:17  <Eddi|zuHause> SmatZ: the joy when operating systems didn't need 20GiB of space ;)
10:52:25  <SmatZ> :)
10:52:43  <norbert79> ZIP drives
10:52:47  <norbert79> aaah, I always wished for one
10:53:02  <beyre83> well i installed win95 off a zip drive, onto a 386sx :p
10:53:11  <beyre83> and it ran
10:53:17  <beyre83> just took like 15mins to boot
10:53:19  <beyre83> lol
10:53:33  <Eddi|zuHause> my ZIP drive is USB, so i think win95 could have some trouble with that ;)
10:53:48  <beyre83> mmm probally win98 be fine tho
10:53:54  <beyre83> as it contains usb drivers :p
10:53:54  <SmatZ> :)
10:54:10  <SmatZ> it wouldn't fit on 100MB drive
10:54:12  <SmatZ> probably
10:54:18  <beyre83> i dunno
10:54:25  <beyre83> probally if cut the crap out :)
10:54:50  <beyre83> or span it to multi disc's :)
10:54:53  <beyre83> fine for installing :p
10:55:30  <Eddi|zuHause> anyone have a GUI XML editor? [like showing the fields in a spreadsheet or something]
10:55:34  <norbert79> I just love old DOS games, when they go to negative in free EMS memory if you had more, than 32 MB o RAM :D
10:55:37  <beyre83> i have win7 x64 on a usbstick to install it

11:01:44  <Rubidium> Eddi|zuHause: but openoffice calcs and recent ms excels are basically XML editors (only one specific XML instance though)
11:09:05  <Eddi|zuHause> Rubidium: i mean i give it an xml and a schema file, and it tries to fit it into something table-like as good as possible
11:09:39  *** KenjiE20 [~KenjiE20@] has joined #openttd
11:24:06  <VVG> I've been thinking about that vehicle arrivaldeparture sorter i'm trying to make and it doesn't quite feel right to make a wrapper function over already avaible FillTimetableArrivalDepartureTable as that spawns a full table for every vehicle it calculates times for.
11:25:04  <VVG> However, making a separate function wihtout a big table leads to some code duplication.
11:28:43  <dihedral> VVG if you find duplicate code, it's usually a hint that code could go into another function
11:28:48  <dihedral> but that is a cleanup

11:33:03  <Eddi|zuHause> VVG: usually hints to making a new function with the common calculations, and use that in both functions
11:33:31  <Eddi|zuHause> (called refactoring)
11:33:57  <dihedral> Eddi|zuHause, i beat you to it :-P
11:34:21  <Eddi|zuHause> dihedral: no, i just wanted to say it in different words ;)
11:34:28  <dihedral> :-)
11:35:04  <Eddi|zuHause> the word "refactoring" comes from the distributive law. if you have "ac+bc", you "factor" it into "(a+b)c"
11:36:01  <Eddi|zuHause> as you see, "c" only appears once in that second term, so the duplication is reduced, at the cost of a slightly more complex term
11:36:28  <dihedral> nicely explained :-)
11:37:14  <norbert79> Eddi|zuHause: Pretty nice english skills :)
11:46:03  <VVG> sounds so easy
11:48:04  <norbert79> Yet I am curious how many players OpenTTD might have from some special languages, like african languages or chinese, etc
11:49:06  <norbert79> and it would be also nice being able translating the website and it's news too, including Wiki
11:49:37  <norbert79> ok, forget the part of the Wiki
11:49:59  <norbert79> I couldn't see the flags because of my eye was in the way
11:50:07  <avdg> the wiki translations are still young :)
11:50:28  <norbert79> yeah, I can see it
11:54:17  <Rubidium> the website more or less supports translations, but the translator doesn't support it

11:55:12  <norbert79> flags? :)
11:55:38  <avdg> well, these are already available on the wiki
11:55:48  <Rubidium> what flag would simplified chinese get? what flag would traditional chinese get?
11:55:49  <avdg> just copy-past I bet
11:56:14  <norbert79> Rubidium: Good point... What about solution?
11:56:36  <norbert79> Rubidium: But this way you could have mentioned german pre 1998 and past 1998 :)
11:56:56  <norbert79> but we could include East German using the GDR flag ;-)
11:57:02  <norbert79> just kidding :)
11:57:07  <Rubidium> avdg: those flags basically stink because it doesn't differentiate between traditional and simplified chinese
11:57:31  <avdg> well, how did they fix it

12:01:38  <norbert79> Rubidium:

12:03:13  <norbert79> Swiss flag
12:03:13  <Rubidium> are Americans Brittish?
12:03:16  <norbert79> US flag

12:03:32  <norbert79> on!
12:03:36  <Rubidium> are Swiss speaking all German?
12:03:46  <Rubidium> are Canadian all speaking French?
12:03:48  <norbert79> what about swiss-italin? :)
12:03:49  <planetmaker> norbert79: Norwegian bokmal and Nynorsk?
12:04:05  <glx> Rubidium: don't forget belgians
12:04:08  <Rubidium> or Arabic with its twenty or so dialects
12:04:08  <avdg> :)
12:04:08  <norbert79> planetmaker: I am not familiar with Norway sorry
12:04:19  <norbert79> Rubidium: Again: German/Swiss flag
12:04:21  <avdg> we just click on the dutch flags
12:04:31  <norbert79> Rubidium: or Italian/Swiss flag
12:04:35  <norbert79> very simple
12:05:01  <Rubidium> avdg: and the Wallons like that you associate yourself with the Dutch?
12:05:04  <norbert79> Same for french/canadian
12:05:09  <planetmaker> as ambigeous as now, norbert79
12:05:17  <avdg> well, they click on the french ones
12:05:27  <avdg> and the germans on the german
12:05:40  <norbert79> austrians also click on 'german'
12:05:40  <avdg> not a real conflict asaik
12:05:49  <avdg> *afaik
12:05:56  <norbert79> Hoch-Deutsch is still Hoch-Deutsch even in Austria

12:06:23  <norbert79> Loving it
12:06:30  <norbert79> Like Nimmermehr :)
12:06:50  <glx> french canadian is not french :)
12:07:13  <Rubidium> still, flags are not a good thing to associate languages with
12:07:25  <norbert79> lol, I still doubt, that this would cause a problem
12:07:32  <glx> better use the windows way
12:07:35  <norbert79> and for mixed languages you can just use this flag collage
12:07:40  <Eddi|zuHause> we should define all countries along language borders!
12:07:50  <norbert79> Eddi|zuHause: Thats a bad idea in my opinion
12:08:03  <norbert79> like with hungarians in Romania
12:08:06  <Eddi|zuHause> i was being ironic ;)
12:08:11  <norbert79> in the Transilvania
12:08:15  <norbert79> region
12:08:18  <norbert79> ah, sorry :)
12:09:01  <norbert79> but you know what experssion is really unspeakable?
12:09:08  <norbert79> "No-more-beer please"
12:09:18  <norbert79> No way I can say that
12:09:24  <norbert79> unspeakable
12:09:48  <glx> a 2 letters' flag
12:10:25  <Eddi|zuHause> glx: you need to put "de_CH" or stuff in the flags...
12:10:36  <glx> windows uses DE
12:10:53  <norbert79> Eddi|zuHause: yeah, that would solve it... glx: Linux tends using the two codes
12:11:01  <Eddi|zuHause> glx: yes, but that's as inaccurate as the country flags
12:11:06  <norbert79> glx: I also prefer the Linux method, using two codes
12:11:14  <glx> but it's the language name at least
12:11:22  <norbert79> in my case it's simple: hu_HU
12:11:34  <norbert79> but there could be hu_RO
12:12:12  <norbert79> and with this you can solve also immigration-type of languages, like we have many chinese in Hungary, and their langauge might have already changed a bit
12:12:15  <norbert79> who knows?
12:12:43  <glx> they already have at least 2 languages in their own country :)
12:12:53  <norbert79> glx: Indeed

19:22:57  <planetmaker> loool?
19:23:24  <Rubidium> and it's only a binary from 2006
19:23:40  <planetmaker> does it have _any_ feature current OpenTTD has not?
19:23:57  <Rubidium> yes
19:24:15  <planetmaker> the "more bugs" feature, I assume ;-)
19:24:25  <Eddi|zuHause> the subsidiaries patch
19:24:25  <__ln__> are there new features in OpenTTD since 2006?
19:24:53  <Eddi|zuHause> plus a few bits and pieces that are "never going to get included"
19:25:15  <planetmaker> :-)

19:25:59  <planetmaker> it's not Bernhard ;-)
19:26:00  <Rubidium> oh, it's 0.5.0-RC2 with extras
19:26:52  <planetmaker> Rubidium: what actually determines the order of the non-release builds? I though the revision number. But... then the miniIN should come last
19:26:54  <Eddi|zuHause> wasn't that the final version of miniin?
19:27:21  <frosch123> i thought the last one was some 8xxx
19:27:23  <Rubidium> Eddi|zuHause: nope
19:28:04  <Rubidium> r8928 IIRC
19:28:18  <Eddi|zuHause> nobody wanted to commit my bridge-patch-port to the miniin back then...

19:34:23  <planetmaker> with his pp?
19:34:32  <Rubidium> yep

19:35:29  <planetmaker> half the patches I had in my clientPP are obsolete as somewhat in trunk ;-)
19:35:34  <Rubidium> "my" patchpacks usually some 10 months, but then I'm not syncing them with trunk :)
19:37:26  <__ln__> do "we" have a tram stop sign yet in the trunk?
19:38:02  <planetmaker> no
19:38:18  <planetmaker> but there are no separate ones for the different rail types either
19:38:24  <planetmaker> Nor for heli and planes

20:37:31  <planetmaker> it needs permission though. If one really stays late, the security will drop by and ask for the night or weekend work permit
20:37:48  <planetmaker> but all people in our institute have that permission
20:37:49  <Terkhen> there isn't one in mine either, except at the places with expensive stuff
20:38:09  <planetmaker> they're separately locked again
20:38:58  <Eddi|zuHause> well, i think here the building entrances are alarm-secured from 22PM to 6AM, and the computer pools etc. are alarm secured separately
20:39:21  <Eddi|zuHause> hm... 22 is always PM :p
20:40:13  <Eddi|zuHause> anyway, to my knowledge, you can't stay in the building over night

22:04:42  <GT> Current situation wrt to recolour is kind of awkward for 32bpp: the colour to remap to is first indirected to an index for every pixel that needs recolour, and then the index indirects to an 32bpp palette. So I think it's better to create couple of 32bpp tables (that could even contain the HSL values to prevent those expensive calculations), and index into them with the .m value directly, using the palette as the table to use

22:21:02  <GT> the way animation currently works, wont work well for 32bpp, so up til now I limited myself to the 32bpp-optimized blitter. Animation would require mpng, or some kind of proprietary png-shuffle. Replacing pixels of a certain colour like in 8bpp won't work very well imho.
22:21:48  <Rubidium> there's also apng, but that won't work either as that's more or less firefox only
22:22:02  <Rubidium> i.e. not in the official png and as such unuseable
22:22:23  <Eddi|zuHause> there are two ways for animation currently. one is pixel/palette animation, which is done in the default grfs e.g. for lighthouses or airports. the other is sprite-animation which is done with newgrfs, e.g. for houses, trains or industries
22:22:28  <GT> right, and the standard are not fixed, i think, though some libs are available

22:33:43  <Eddi|zuHause> i never understood why animated png wasn't considered right from the start. as animated gifs were pretty wide spread, and png was supposed to be a gif replacement
22:33:55  <GT> and mng as supported by png seems to be rather heavy-weight
22:36:37  <GT> so I started thinking about something like put a couple of png in a file and update the offsets on a game timer, for OTTD it does not need to be fancier than that, but that was just a brainwave, I think there's lots of other work for 32bpp to be done that is more specific.
22:37:20  <Rubidium> that'd break the original graphics though

22:37:45  <GT> right, so I left it alone for now, and limited to non-animated
22:38:31  <beyre83> i have one sujestion for ottd, you should change the Talk key to C then if you had (building stuff, such as rail, road) it wouldnt think you wanna place a tunnel rather than chat
22:38:35  <beyre83> i find that annoying :p
22:39:25  <Rubidium> you can change that in trunk (the keybinding that is)
22:39:44  <beyre83> mmm but that requires programming.....
22:40:03  <GT> check again
22:40:19  <Rubidium> if changing a configuration setting is programming, then yes... it requires programming
22:40:50  <beyre83> why didnt you say terminal
22:40:57  <beyre83> to me trunk = SVN TRUNK
22:41:23  <GT> look for hotkeys.cfg
22:41:25  <Rubidium> yes, you need the openttd from svn's trunk
22:41:32  <Rubidium> as such: in trunk

23:10:19  <Ammler> is it possible to modify a AI while it is loaded in openttd?
23:10:27  <Ammler> e.g. for debug possibilites
23:11:15  <Ammler> Yexo: or why is the need to build a disadvantage?
23:11:47  <Yexo> you can edit it while openttd is running, the changes won't show up until you reload the AI
23:12:00  <Ammler> so quite much like newgrfs
23:12:03  <Yexo> so edit, reload savegame is very common
23:12:23  <Yexo> yes, but for newgrfs you need to do "edit, compile, reload", for AIs "edit, reload" is sufficient
23:12:38  <Yexo> having to build just adds an extra unnecesary step to the process
23:13:00  <Ammler> well, you need to change the version everytime
23:13:30  <Ammler> if not, then you also don't need to build everytime, only if the version changes :-)
23:13:43  <Ammler> and then it might be easier
23:14:05  <Yexo> you don't need to change the version every time
23:14:13  <Yexo> but info.nut always needs a valid version
23:14:17  <Ammler> then you also don't need to build everytime
23:14:30  <Yexo> depends on how the makefile works, how it substitutes the version
23:14:39  <Ammler> as long as the version is the only dependency
23:15:35  <Ammler> sed "s/{VERSION}/r`hg id -n`/" info.nut
23:16:54  <Ammler> make should do that, no tar, that should be another target
23:17:34  *** Progman [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
23:17:49  <Ammler> hg parent --template="{rev}" is better, else you get a +
23:19:14  <Yexo> that still adds the step to run make every time
23:19:21  <Ammler> why?
23:19:34  <Yexo> hmm, or not
23:19:36  <Ammler> only when you change the info.nut
23:19:49  <Ammler> or info.pnut or whatever :-)
23:21:41  <Ammler> you could run make as commit hook
23:21:53  <Rubidium> would it be that much of a problem to run make once? After that you don't need to run make anymore for just testing purposes; you'll just get a possibly to low version number, but that shouldn't matter as you shouldn't have newer version of your AI anyways
23:22:46  <Rubidium> then on make bundle or something you (unconditionally?) rebuild info.nut so nightlies and releases get the right version and as side effect the version for you is changed as well
23:23:17  <Rubidium> you *might* even consider using awk to replace the version inline, i.e. without needing a pnfo or something
23:23:28  <Ammler> or sed -i
23:23:39  <Ammler> but that might not work with windwos
23:24:13  *** madgerm2 [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
23:25:38  <Ammler> well, if the version is the only thing, we could do that also with bash, no need for make
23:25:51  <Ammler> i mean sed the info.nut and the taring...
23:26:24  <Ammler> s/bash/spec/
23:26:28  <Yexo> I was considering splitting the version, so the high word becomes the version at it is now and the low word becomes the hg revision
23:26:41  <Yexo> make fills the hg revision, the high word is set manually
23:26:41  <Rubidium> that's also an option
23:27:10  <Rubidium> 26 << 16 | $hgversion will probably work fine :)
23:27:12  <Yexo> during development it doesn't matter if the hg revision is set correctly as long as the manually set version is newer than another copy
23:27:17  <Yexo> or that :)
23:28:12  <Rubidium> although such versions will look pretty bad in OpenTTD itself
23:28:21  <Rubidium> (it's showing that version, right?)
23:28:30  <Yexo> yes, it is
23:29:10  <Yexo> we could add GetLongVersion() returning a string as optional function in info.nut
23:38:25  <Ammler> don't you use the svn rev for the ai version now?
23:38:57  <Yexo> no
23:39:03  <Yexo> currently I only use a manually set version
23:39:10  <Yexo> which I only change with every release
23:39:21  *** Brianetta [] has quit [Quit: TschÌß]
23:39:30  <Yexo> that's why I never upload development versions, because their version conflicts with the next release version
23:39:47  <Ammler> I see :-)
23:40:49  <Ammler> what is MinVersionToLoad for?
23:41:26  <Yexo> savegame versions
23:41:53  <Yexo> if it returns 23, all savegames saved by an AI with the same shortname and version 23 to GetVersion() will be loadable
23:42:02  *** dfox [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
23:43:59  <Ammler> oh, the the GRFID for newgrfs
23:44:03  <Ammler> like*
23:44:26  <Yexo> no, the shortname can be compared to the grfid
23:44:33  <Yexo> the version can be compared to the action14 version
23:45:02  <Ammler> but you change that minversion, when the ai gets incompatible, don't you?
23:46:38  <Yexo> yes
23:47:05  <Yexo> but not necesarily
23:47:29  <Yexo> I have version 1 which stores A, now I create version 2 which stores B but can also load A, so MinVersion still returns 1
23:48:00  <Yexo> so although the data from 2 is incompatible with 1 the minversion can still be 1 because their is compatibility for the old data buildin
